Britannia Roll Yo Swiss Roll Cake Flavors  – Detailed Review

Here’s our experience with Britannia Swiss Rolls.

1. Choco

The Swiss roll is placed in a cuboid-cylindrical cardboard tray to prevent breaking or cracking. Thumbs up for this!

The Swiss roll looked visually appealing. It is a rolled layer of chocolate-flavored sponge cake, filled with cream. This primarily smells like chocolate with hints of vanilla.

The filling is not flowy. It is overpoweringly sweet. The sponge cake, on the other hand, barely shows any sweetness. The chocolate flavor is disappointingly average. That said, the cake felt soft and fresh.

Overall, this showcases an undesirable industrial taste.

2. Strawberry

Packed similarly, this Swiss roll comprises a vanilla sponge cake with pale pink colored filling. In this vanilla-dominant aroma, we noticed some undertones of strawberry.

The sweetness of the filling is far better as compared to chocolate. The strawberry flavor balances out the sweetness. That said, the strawberry flavor feels artificial.

Surprisingly, the texture of the sponge here was chalky. It was thicker and the top layer could be peeled off. 

Taste- 2/5
Texture- 3/5
Mishry Rating- 2.5/5
  • The strawberry flavor is very artificial tasting.
  • The texture of the sponge is unappealing.
