Lidl’s Eridanous Roxakia Review

Lidl’s Eridanous Roxakia costs £3.49 and is a really delicious pastry despite its priciness! I thoroughly enjoyed this and they make great pairs with coffee!

The Roxakia are very sweet and super moist which is great but make sure to eat them quickly when you get them as I had noticed the packaging it was stored in starts to have a large amount of syrup accumulating and the pastries get more moist because of this. So if you don’t want them drenched you should probably move them out of the box they come in, into a new container.

The pastry surrounding the filling is both fluffy and decadent though it is light and satisfying while the filling is heavy creating a great contrast. The filling has hints of cinnamon and cocoa while you can taste slight vanilla. These pair well with a coffee on the side which helps to add a bitterness that deepens the complexities of the pastry. I can also taste a quite strong egg flavor within the flavoring as well which gives it richness and creaminess. I had also tried this while drinking a prosecco which is a great alcohol to pair with as both are sweet!

The pastries have a very strong aroma of cinnamon which really creates a coffee-house type vibe when enjoying the dessert! Overall, I really enjoyed eating them and give them 5/5!
