Beaulieu Chocolate Studio is nestled in the New Forest and they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh an where possible local ingredients. Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Forest Fruit bar is another newbie for me. Perusing their website is both a must but also dangerous, there are some serious delights on there. Amaretti (WANT), Banoffee, Coconut and Rocky Road chocolate, to chocolate shaped novelty items, speciality pieces and hot chocolate. This is a chocoholics mini paradise. At £3.95 a bar it is on the pricer side for chocolate, so let’s see if it is worth it. Handmade…

A little while back I reviewed the new Gü Fusions Mango and Passionfruit Mousse and it was to die for so I was hoping for similar things with their other variety Gü Mousse Fusions Strawberry. It seems like an obvious flavour choice and I kind of wish they had gone for something a little different, but you can’t really go wrong with strawberry. The aim of this new range is to make us adults happy. Research suggests that chilled mousse is predominantly aimed at kiddies and Gu wanted to give something a tad more premium that we adults would love, and who…

I don’t normally bat an eyelid at Kettle Discoveries because their flavours are a little whacky for me when it comes to crisps, I am a simple Salt and Vinegar girl and proud of it. That said when my lovely chum Kevvie posted these Kettle Discoveries New York Deli with Pastrami, Dill Pickle & Mustard crisps on Instagram I knew I had to try them. So here we are today with sandwich themed crisps on the menu.  Kettle Discoveries is all about snazzy flavour combinations that are inspired from near and far places and are ultimately here to get us…
