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…

Milka Oreo

Whilst on our travels over the Christmas period I took the opportunity to pop into a BM store as there isn’t one that local to me. Perusing the aisles I came across this Milka Oreo bar and at a bargain price of 99p I could not resist buying it. We all know that Cadbury Dairy Milk have attempted the Oreo and to be fair it’s not that bad, but it could be better. 100% Alpine milk chocolate and original crunchy Oreo cookie pieces. Unlike the Cadbury version, Milka is a lot flatter and does not pack as much filling. The Oreo pieces…

Twix Peanut Butter

What better way to start the new year than with Peanut Butter! Yes my addiction to peanut butter continues with another peanut butter hybrid and comes in the form of a Twix bar.   Normally Twix bars are tricky to break but without the caramel these snapped pretty easily. The packaging points to a new recipe however not knowing the old recipe, I’m not too sure what the differences are.  Creamy peanut butter covering a chocolate cookie, coated in milk chocolate. Don’t be fooled by the creamy aspect of the peanut butter because although it was smooth it was not creamy like you’d expect…

Sainsbury’s Gingerbread Ice Cream

Happy Christmas Eve Everyone!! What better way to mark the day before christmas than with Sainsbury’s Gingerbread Ice Cream. I have been like a woman possessed searching for this tub; because frankly Gingerbread Ice Cream is an ice cream I want to get on board with.  I have never really seen Gingerbread as solely a festive foodie flavour and my love for Jamaican Ginger Cake is something I feed throughout the year. Now if Sainsbury’s can morph that into an ice cream, just like Mr Kipling did with their Viennese Whirls, well we will have one happy Nibs ‘n’ Scribs…

Tesco Finest Roast Turkey Stuffing Crisps

It’s so close to Christmas we can almost smell the Roast Dinner cooking! Today’s post is a take on the humble roast and is Tesco Finest Roast Turkey Stuffing Crisps. There are a number of Crisp companies that have bought out the festive dinner flavour, but can Tesco win the taste factor? Originally I was on the hunt for the Tesco Finest Prosecco and Elderberry Crisps but surprise surprise they were no where to be found, and I have checked a number of times. Nonetheless not one to leave empty handed I spied these Limited Edition Roast Turkey and Stuffing…
