In one word: Rancid
Why did I buy one of these? I was seduced by the prospect of another passionfruit icing success but was left feeling a bit saddened by the experience. In such a beautiful town I expected a decent bakery. The vanilla slices were on two shelves in the cabinet, now I understand why! I think I was given the leftovers from a few days ago. The slice was subsiding due to the separation of the icing and some of the custard was discoloured and rancid looking. This was not what was on offer at the front of the display cabinet. To top this all off the icing itself wasn't particularly passion fruit flavoured and the pastry was soggy and impossible to cut. A real low point in my recent experiences.
