CHESHUNT, England, 2015-12-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Move over chilli chocolate, so long salted caramel, say hello to the Tesco finest* Duck Éclair – just in time for Christmas. Taking sweet and savoury food fusion to the next level, this winter, Tesco is offering a new, exciting and innovative twist on a classic sweet chocolate éclair, which is sure to be the talking point of Christmas parties up and down the country.
The Tesco finest* Duck Éclair is stuffed with tender duck and marinated with Chinese 5 spice and star anise for an authentic Asian flavour. Accompanied with finely cut carrots and onion, this is all seasoned with a sweet and soy sauce and encased in a pastry éclair, which is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The hoisin drizzle on top replaces the traditional chocolate and adds a rich sweet flavour to the éclairs.
Fiona Carter, New Product Development manager at Tesco comments, “We wanted to create an innovative party snack for our customers this Christmas – something that would be both delicious and the talking point of Christmas get-togethers and parties. Our duck éclair will hopefully do just that – plus there’s the added bonus of little prep time, so party hosts will have more time to mingle and enjoy themselves”.
Notes to editors:
*RRP £5.00 for a pack of 8 (280g).
