Carte D’or Cinnamon Biscuit

Carte D’or is our household’s favourite everyday ice cream, not that we eat it everyday, albeit given the chance I am sure that we would. I am unsure if Carte D’or Cinnamon Biscuit is a newbie, however it is one that I have only just come across.   The ice cream was a light shade of caramel. The one thing that Carte D’or trumps every other ice cream company at is the fact you can scoop the ice cream out immediately after you get it out the freezer. Perfect for those, like me, who are impatient and don’t want to wait 10 minutes to…

Heston from Waitrose Cherry Bakewell Hot Cross Buns

It’s out with Christmas and in with Easter. Christmas has barely finished and already we are faced with an abundance of Easter goods in the Supermarket. Now usually I wouldn’t partake in Easter goodies until nearer the time, however I spied these Heston Cherry Bakewell Hot Cross Buns in Waitrose yesterday and simply could not walk on by without buying them.  You cannot have Easter and not have hot cross buns, it is literally the law in our house that there must always be hot cross buns on offer. We have had the Heston Early Grey and Mandarin Hot Cross…

Irish Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramello & Golden Crunch

The Grown Up Chocolate Company Dark Chocolate Smoothy

Today we have another chocolate goodie from The Grown Up Chocolate Company. I have previously reviewed The Grown Up Chocolate Company’s Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy and Superb Salted Peanut Caramel and thanks to the forever lovely Miss Snack Warrior, the queen of exciting food parcels, today is the turn of their Dark Chocolate Smoothy.  So what does the Dark Chocolate Smoothy hold? Well we have a chocolate ganache centre topped with chocolate caramel all coated within dark chocolate. Doesn’t it look extremely inviting!  As suggested this bar is exceptionally smooth. You would think from the wedge of caramel it would be rather chewy and an exercise…

Lacasa Turrón de Cheesecake

Sunday the day of rest and today’s review is Lacasa turrón de Cheesecake, and was part of some exciting goodies brought back for me from Spain. Pretty as a picture and despite not being a great cheesecake fan. I was looking forward to trying this rather different goodie. Nougat Praline Cheesecake As with all cheesecakes you have the biscuit base and cheesecake upper, and this is no different, albeit the two layers aren’t very visible to the eye. The first thing I noticed was the smell, and not a very nice smell, a cross between cheap quality white chocolate and sickly…
