The Almond Milk Project: Tesco Almond Unsweetened

This week’s almond milk gets its review outing poured atop some revolting banana-flavoured weetabix. As a result, it was necessary to sample some of it neat, to experience its almondyness unblemished. What do you mean, you think I should be ensuring consistent review conditions to ensure a fair and balanced playing field? What would you know about such things? Leave me alone.

Flavour: a relatively gentle flavour of almonds in this one, which is surprising as it comprises 2% almonds so you’d expect it to be twice as almondy as the Rude Health.

Mouthfeel: a little lacking in substance, but on the whole it’s not an unpleasant transition for those who are used to cow’s milk.

Sweetness: none at all, which can be quite startling if you’re unprepared.
