Lidl’s Eridanous Kourkoubini Filo Pastries Review

Lidl’s Eridanous Kourkoubini Filo Pastries cost (as of writing) £3.49 and they were generally okay and are great with coffee!

The Kourkoubini is very syrupy (as expected) and a thick filo pastry dessert which tastes very nice- though you will have to take some of the syrup from the box and re-add it to the kourkoubini as I found that they can be dry on the top. The syrup is very sweet but not sickly sweet – the kourkoubini are not flakey but they do have a nice soft mouthfeel and it’s bitesize so you’ll end up eating a lot of them!

I thoroughly enjoyed them with black coffee as the bitterness gave a great contrast to the sweetness and somewhat creaminess of the kourkoubini. Though I also tried these with white wine and it was divine! I also sprinkled a small amount of salt on some of them and it really added some elevation to its flavour and made it more like a ‘salted caramel’-like taste to it.

As of writing, the Lidl Kourkoubini does not use any honey at all (which ironically might mean that they’re not really kourkoubini at all) but it does make it vegan and vegetarian! I have listed the ingredients at the bottom of the review so that you can check it out as well.
