“ Manufacturer: Tesco / Type: Sandwich „
I remembered reading a review on here about this Hoisin Duck Wrap and so when I saw them in Tesco I had to have one cos I love wraps and duck so knew I'd looooooove this! The wrap is cut and folded so that you get 2 halves and that makes it a lot easier to eat. They are white wraps and there's more duck in it than I thought there would be, there's also some lettuce and that's stayed nice and crisp so that shows how fresh the wrap is. The duck is cooked nice and the sauce is so nice and fruity, it takes like the sauce they give you in the chinese to make those duck pancakes up. There isn't a lot of sauce in the wrap but it tastes nice and strong so that you can get all the flavour, the taste of the sauce goes wicked with the duck as well. I think the wrap itself is very nice as well. It's got a yummy floury taste and texture and is lovely and soft. The filling is shoved all the way down to the bottom of the wrap and there is just the right amount of duck and lettuce. I ate both of the wrap halves and they filled me up nice, I think just one half would be good for a quick snack but because they are folded so good they are so easy to eat that you might as well have both of them. The Hoisin Duck Wrap cost me £2.40 and that's a bit dear compared to the rest of the sarnies in Tesco but it's so tasty that I don't mind paying it.
While out shopping the a few days ago I was struck with an attack of peckishness, I wasn't hungry enough to eat a meal but needed something a little more substantial than a packet of crisps. As I was in Tesco I decided to have a look at their sandwiches and see if anything inspired me - and this is the one I went for, nestled between the dull old egg or cheese sandwiches was a single solitary Hoi Sin Duck Wrap. You get a good amount of duck in the wrap and that surprised me because even as I bought it I was assuming that all the meat would be pushed to the top of the wrap to make it look more appealing! The duck comes in small squidgy lumps and tastes absolutely delicious as the meat itself has been mixed with Hoi Sin sauce, in my opinion it has been blended in the perfect quantites as the duck tastes deliciously fruity yet still has the wonderful meatiness that this poultry is known for. There's rather too much lettuce for my liking and I must admit I had to take some of it out as Tesco have gone a little overboard and I feared it would make the wrap a little bland in flavour if I had left it all in. The wrap itself is soft and delightfully doughy with a nice floury texture that I think complimented the flavoursome duck to perfection. The duck filling is stretched down the entire wrap (which comes in two easy to eat halves, by the way) and once I'd eaten the first half I was reassured that there was sufficient meat in the wrap to justify the £2.40 price tag. I found this wrap to be filling yet light to eat, which sounds like a contradiction in terms I know but the delicate flavours of everything go exceptionally well together and they lend the wrap a deliciously easy to eat consistency. I adore Hoi Sin Duck from my local Chinese restaurant and I was impressed by how authentic the flavours were in this wrap, admittedly the duck was squelchier than the shredded duck I'd expect from a restaurant but who really expects perfection when it comes to shop bought sandwiches?
