Mars Choc Brownie Bar

The Mars Choc Brownie Bar is a twist on the original Mars bar. Whether you are a traditionalist or not the addition of brownie maybe enough to tempt you to try this new chocolate bar. It has been around for a while and opinions are certainly divided.  Singular or in a multipack getting your hands on the Mars Choc Brownie Bar is easy peasy. They can be found in all major supermarkets, online supermarkets and even newsagents and range from 60p upwards.  One would assume that with the offer of ‘chocolate brownie’ you would get a soft, slightly squishy chocolatey…

Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake

Yes it is another round of Hotel Chocolate delights. The reason for the visit at the weekend was purely for gift purposes only. However after perusing the Selector section and spying the Hotel Chocolat Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake, I knew they were coming home with me.  Usually the PB & J combo is something that is given a miss.

Pastoret Banana and Biscuit Organic Yoghurt

Today it is all about the humble yoghurt. Pastoret Banana and Biscuit Organic Yoghurt to be precise. This is a new brand for me and one that seems to have just popped up into the fresh aisle of the supermarket. From what started as a family business has expanded from a small workshop to a factory but stuck with traditional artisan methods.  Each costs around £1.75 a pop, I have managed to get these on offer recently so were nearer the £1.00. Each 135g pot comes in a glass pot, sealed top and cardboard sleeve. Far better for the environment. I…

Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams

If you haven’t seen the Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams where have you been? These sneaked on the shelves with no warning, but give a glimpse of summer flavours to come.  My mum is a self proclaimed Custard Cream Queen. What gives her this title? She eats an abundance every week and has pretty much worked her way around the Custard Cream scene in search of the tip top cream. Which FYI she has voted Tesco as the top dog here.  It was a priority mission that these were obtained asap and we picked these up a few weeks ago…
