Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Amaretti Chocolate Bar

Beaulieu Chocolate Studio creations are not a newbie to the blog and I have already reviewed two bars, Pistachio and Forest Fruits. This time it is the turn of the Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Amaretti Chocolate Bar Nestled in the New Forest they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh and where possible local ingredients. The store itself is divided into two halves, one where the magic happens and the chocolate is made, and the other the store. It’s a chocoholics mini paradise.  Although the New Forest and Beaulieu are lovely places to lists, you can now…

Maryland Cookies ‘n’ Cream

Okay so these Maryland Cookies ‘n’ Cream aren’t strictly new. They certainly won’t be as exciting as the new Mint Choc ones (available in B&M review from Kev here), but that being said they are new to our local Sainsbury’s. If you think of cookies and cream I bet you’re thinking of Oreo’s, because they are kind on the cookies and cream flavour. Many other biscuits have tried to nail it but sadly the Oreo remains champion.  These are available in mainstream supermarkets and cost around 75p – £1.00 a pack. Maryland have expanded their range in a few different…

Chocolate lovers rejoice because this is the place for you. Those eagle eyed readers will remember me talking about Rococo Chocolates as part of my Covent Garden Hidden Gems post (here).

From Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, Bruce…

Afternoon Tea at Vertigo 42

As restrictions are being relaxed I wanted to share my little afternoon tea trip that I took back in February, which feels a lifetime ago! Despite my love of afternoon tea I’ve never had one in London. However that changed after the lovely team I work with surprised me with Afternoon Tea at Vertigo 42. Booking through Groupon was easy peasy, and it was recommended to book promptly so not to miss out on your preferred date, however there were ample to choose from. A train, a couple of tubes and a short walk and you arrive at quite the…

New Lotus Biscoff Cream Biscuits

Combining biscuit with their iconic spread it can only be one thing, the Lotus Biscoff Cream Biscuits. When it comes to Biscoff most of us love it in whatever form it comes in, and using both their cream spread and biscuits was naturally a genius move.  If one wasn’t enough these Lotus Biscoff Biscuits come in 3 flavours, Biscoff, Milk Chocolate and Vanilla. There were only available in Tesco stores and online, however are creeping into other supermarkets, and  are in Sainsbury’s. Each pack are RRP £1.39 and they are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.  Opting for a classic round…
