Aldi Quicksters Italian Meatball Wrap Review
New at Aldi’s is the Quicksters branded microwaveable Mini Wrap. They come in 2 flavours(now 4) at 99p each and this one is the Italian Meatball flavour.
All you need to do is pull off the strip on the side of the box and microwave for 1 min 15 sec. The wrap is heated right through and measures up around 17cm X 5cm and about 2.5cm thick. The tortilla, some parts almost see through, is moist and definitely NOT tough or chewy as I thought it would be. Instead it has a good consistency, softish and OK tasting. The meatball inside is actually a sausage but that’s a good thing as anyone will know trying to stop a meatball popping out of a wrap is a full time job and the last thing that you want is to be eating this at the office at lunchtime and going back to work with meatball skidmarks down your top. The wrap tastes Italian, straight away you get a herby, rich tomatoey flavour and when you do reach the “meatball” it gives an extra herby and meaty flavour and a little, little bit of spice. Afterward, your mouth does feel like you’ve just had an Italian meal and overall the taste are very good, I can’t fault it. It’s a little on the small side and doesn’t really fill you up massively but for 99p its worth it for the flavours.
Overall, a bit on the small side but very good tastes plus not as much fat content as you would think plus it contains MORE Protein than a Bounce Protein Ball and many of those other Protein Burst products.
