Also, seen from the view of The Old Girl it's outrageous, egregious and preposterous.
So, what am I referring to?
|DELICIOUS, SCRUMPTIOUS, OUTSTANDING|
I bought it from Countdown in the bakery section. I note that it's made in Italy and given that it tastes like fresh cream inside it's outrageous, egregious and preposterous. How does this manage to be shipped from Italy and, unfozen, still stay fresh.
The answer is in the list of ingredients on the back of course.
Glucose Syrup, Reconstituted Milk [Water, Milk Solids], Water, Savioardo Biscuit (Minimum 9.0%) [Wheat Flour, Egg, Sugar, Milk Proteins, Raising Agents (450,500)], Mascarpone (Minimum 5.0%) [Cream, Acidity Regulator (lactic acid)], Vegetable Oil, Sugar, Milk Proteins, Egg Yolk, Alcohol (2.5%), Stabiliser (420), Cocoa Dusting (Minimum 1.0%) [Cocoa (Minimum 0.5%), Dextrose, Wheat, Starch, Sugar, Cocoa Butter), Marsala Wine (Minimum 0.9%), Thickeners [407, 415], Soluble Coffee (Minimum 0.6%), tapioca starch, emulsifiers (471, 472b), coffee extract(0.1%), flavourings, salt.
I've highlighted the preserving agents which have probably irreparably damaged my health but, damn it was delicious.
I bought this on Sunday after I dropped The Old Girl off at the airport and finished the last of it off for lunch today. I've gotten rid of the evidence so she will be unaware of this illegal, immoral and irresponsible purchase.
