Review: Quality Street Toffee Penny Dessert

What’s your favourite sweet from a Quality Street tin? Mine is undoubtedly the toffee penny. I love them. Chewy, sweet toffee that fills my mouth with toffee flavour that lingers on for minutes after the sweet is gone. So good. So when I spotted these new desserts in the little Tesco Express around the corner

Review: Weight Watchers Instant Hot Chocolate

I love hot chocolate. But I am totally fussy. It has to be proper hot chocolate, made with hot milk. Weight Watchers sent me some of their instant hot chocolate to see what I thought. Instant hot chocolate like this is a great way to warm up and get a sweet chocolate fix without many

Have Your Cake – Well, Caramel Apple

Limited Edition Mars Caramel

Ever thought that a Mars Bar has too many layers? Worry no more! Mars has brought out a 100% caramel version.  The bar itself (I got mine at my local Spar shop for 2 for 90p) is smaller than a standard Mars bar – the same length but flatter. It is just the caramel layer

Elizabeth Shaw Luxury Chocolates

I have never seen so much chocolate in a box addressed to me… …This was the hamper I received courtesy of Elizabeth Shaw so I could test and review their full range. And wow. I am a lucky blogger! I admit I (well along with friends and family) have spent the last month or so

Valentine's Chocolates by Hotel Chocolat

What do you do to spoil your other half on St Valentine’s Day? Flowers? Just a card? Nothing?  Well that’s ok… we each have our own ways of doing things on what is supposed to be the most loved up day of the year don’t we? Whatever you think of the day itself, the tradition

Year in Photos (28 Dec 11) – Tiddly Penguin

My aunt and uncle got me these for Christmas. I have to say I was expecting something really quite tiny but actually they’re big. Very yummy Hotel Chocolat caramel chocolate. 28/12/11: Not as tiddly as the box suggests, but still yummy!

Year in Photos (16 Dec 11) – Relaxing

A relaxing evening was definitely what I needed today. So I got my PJs on, stuck some rubbish on the telly, and tucked into what was left of my tub of Caramel Chew Chew. Love Ben and Jerrys. 16/12/11: Caramel Chew Chew, pyjamas and some rubbish on telly – recipe for a much needed relaxing evening

Hotel Chocolat Christmas Wreath

How about this as a centre piece for your Christmas table? It’s The Christmas Wreath from Hotel Chocolat – a 450g shaped chocolate slab that is perfect for sharing during this year’s festivities.  Hotel Chocolat kindly sent me one to try as part of their Christmas blogger programme this year. It looks stunning doesn’t it?  Moulded

Galaxy Gift For You

Ooo look more new chocolate to try… this time I had one of the new (limited edition) Galaxy Gift For You treats. These are present shaped chocolate bars (packaged for Christmas, of course), with half solid Galaxy chocolate and half Galaxy caramel.  I love the novel shape of the chocolate – the present even has

Galaxy Bites – New Chocolate Treat

Putting sweet treats by the counter in shops is so very dangerous.  And when the display says NEW all over it I just cannot resist.  Recently my local Spar has had new Galaxy Bites sat there by the till… and it wasn’t long until I gave into temptation and bought a packet. Galaxy Bites are
