Oats are a cupboard staple and I bet if you pop into your kitchen you will have box lurking around.

Mr Kipling After Dinner Chocolate Orange Fancies

If you want to give them a try at the moment then they can be found in Tesco and also on Ocado for £1.00. Keeping the soft cake base and dark crackly chocolate topping,…

Orange Smarties Buttons

We have had the Milk Chocolate Smarties Buttons, the White Chocolate Smarties Buttons, and now it is the turn of the Orange Smarties Buttons. The trio is now complete and these are the ones that most Smarties lovers will be wanting to try, because everyone knows orange Smarties taste the best.  The milk and white chocolate varieties are widely available both in supermarkets and sizes. However these Orange Smarties Buttons are exclusive to Asda, and are only available in an 85g sharing bag. Sharing is of course optional.   They are little boring to even look at, especially in comparison to…
