Review: Mona tompouce pudding

Today, I will be reviewing another Mona pudding. When I heard that they are adding the Mona tompouce flavored pudding to their permanent line, I could not wait to try it out. A tompouce is a typical dutch puff pastry dessert with pink icing on top (you might have seen them before in my King's day food post, but with an orange icing). I was really curious to find out how this pudding version of it tastes like.

On top of packaging, you can read that this is an airy tompouce flavored pudding with a pink icing sauce.

From the side, you can see that it has a very interesting yellow-pink contrast. The colors seem a bit artificial, but it still looks very appetizing.

From the many holes in the pudding, you can already see how airy it is.

As always, I only try to eat one half of the Mona pudding, since the whole thing is a bit too much, even for someone like me that just loves pudding.

 My opinion

I really think that they did a great job on the airy texture as it really tastes similar to the thick, yellow pastry cream that you can find in between the two puff pastry layers of a tompouce. However, they could have made the pudding sweeter or added some vanilla flavor. The pink icing sauce was also lacking a bit in flavor, as the pink icing on a tompouce is normally very sweet and with a sugary, strawberry flavor. It actually makes me feel like I am eating a light product such as light chips; you know that you are eating potato chips, but somehow, it doesn't fully satisfy you.
