Each tart, labeled with numbers one to four, was judged on taste, appearance and texture. Nobody knew which tart belonged to which store which added to the fun.
The winner was Monti’s Cafe and Deli, which scored 23 points out of 30.
In second place was Woolies scoring 19, earning third place was Checkers with 17 and in fourth place was Pick n Pay Cornubia following closely behind with a score of 16 points.
The winning tart, which is also egg-free, earned itself comments such as: “Mmmmm, nice and creamy” and “nice base, creamy texture and the right amount of sugar.”
Another taster commented: “I loved the taste. Not too sweet and just the right base.”
This milk tart costs R40.99.
