Portugese Custard Tarts 4Pk - £2 @ Tesco instore

Posted 10th Oct 2018Local
Tesco are now selling x4 Portugese Custard Tarts in the bakery section, took them enough time lol :-)

Still not as good value for money as the Lidl ones (which seem to have stopped selling them)

Still a decent price though at 50p each.

About 60p, according to the Tesco website.
Can someone explain the deal here?
My local Tesco have been selling them loose at 2 for a £1 for a while, this offer and the OP is virtually the same as Lidl's 49p each offer (I know some people found them reduced further near the end of the offer).

These are made with puff pastry, and the custard filling is a little different.

More of a caramelised taste. Flaky pastry. Not as stodgy

You need to taste one


Not disputing that they will be tasty but isn't this a deals site?

Sainsburys sell them at 80p each, Tesco's usual price is 70p each, they are a luxurious treat and growing in popularity (maybe thanks to Michael Portillo!) and 50p each is the threshold where I jump in! Good deal.

And her on 10 k house, she was plugging them on every episode.
If you buy these from a Portuguese bakery in London they cost about £1 to £1.50 each so this is a great deal.

They are nothing like the English ones. You need to try one to know the difference.
Love custard and I love a tart
I was really excited about these but they're nowhere near as nice as lidl or morrison imo, too chewy :-( Also I am wondering why they aren't kept in the fridge like English ones, is it because the English ones are "egg" custard?

Still the best ones are from the Portuguese shops themselves I prefer the Morrison and Sainsbury’s ones to Lidl but haven’t tried Tesco
The key to these are they have to be fresh otherwise the puffy pastry becomes a bit rubbish so they’re not as nice. Will defo try these ones though. Tried lidls, morrisons and co ops, best so far has been co op but they are expensive in there

Who?
What?
Huh....
Theses are so so nice if anyone hasn’t tried them you must buy some today !!!
They have stalls in China dedicated to just selling these (hot) everywhere
Didn't rate these when I bought some that were reduced earlier this week. Lovely flaky pastry , but the small amount of custard filling was overly sweet for my liking anyway.

Portuguese use cinnamon in the custard
Pastel de nata
As a huge custard tart fan I love both these and the traditional English cussie tart. Main thing is that the Portuguese version back home is a small delicacy that's very popular and sold everywhere. Quality can vary but a good one with a coffee is a match made in heaven. The comnercial English versions are quite bland and can be stodgy plus the filling is often made from a powdered egg custard mix. Nevertgeless, if I could only have one, the English version wins for me. Just guessing but I think that the Portuguese version will be better suited to standing in a hotter climate without refrigeration.
Please correct the title: Portuguese
I make my own from time to time. Deciding these were almost like a Bakewell Pudding, I tried putting a glob of jam in the bottom. I never make them any other way now. Yum!
