Pea Pops Chickpea Crisps *

January 2022, it is quite remarkable that a new year has come around in a blink of an eye. After a little break over the festive period we are back with a new review of Pea Pops Chickpea Crisps. Other than a fabulous name and vibrant colourful packaging these fall quite nicely into Veganuary. Launched in 2020 Pea Pops are in their very nature popped and not fried. They too have 20% protein, are gluten free, high in fibre, vegan/vegetarian and are the winner of The Great Taste Award. Coming in 3 flavours, 2 vegan 1 vegetarian, these can be purchased…

Eating Out at Piccolino Virginia Water

Located on London Road, Virginia Water, behind the walls of the very plain white looking Piccolino building is a restaurant that boasts an open kitchen, wine and cocktail bar and a substantial alfresco terrace.

These cup shaped selectors are my favourite style, they always seem to give a better ratio of filling. Each of these 6 cups is filled with maple,…

Salted Caramel Fudge Munchies

Cast your mind back 2 years to when Nestle gave us two (somewhat disappointing) new flavours of Munchies. Fast forward and these Salted Caramel Fudge Munchies have hit the shelves. It may be a flavour we have seen already flood the market and sail on through, but it is nice to see they haven’t gone for chocolate orange. Incase you aren’t au fait with the original Munchies they are square, filled with soft caramel and a small round biscuit in the middle, all of which is encased in a thick chocolate coating. These were originally in Morrisons but are now in…

Cadbury Mint Chocolate Fingers

A year on since the Chocolate Orange Fingers now Cadbury Mint Chocolate Fingers have hit the shelves. Is it possible that mint chocolate is going to explode into a tonne of varieties and overtake the plethora of chocolate orange? If you missed the review on the Mint Choc Buttons then you can find it here. As with the Buttons you can pick these up from Tesco for a slightly higher RRP of £1.50 per box. It is yet to be known when they will be hitting other stores. Each tray is filled with crisp mint flavoured biscuits covered with Cadbury…
