Cadbury Dairy Milk Simply the Zest Chocolate Bar

Cadbury have three new chocolate bars all of which were created by chocoholics as part of Cadbury’s inventor’s competition. It is then up to us to vote for one to be triumphant and be a permanent fixture. First up on the blog is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Simply the Zest Chocolate Bar.  Although Poundland appeared to be the first to stock these bars, they are now readily available in supermarkets and corner shops alike. Each 110g bar comes in at £1.49 a pop but are mostly on offer for a £1.00, so shop around.  The name alone I absolutely love! Not…

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.

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. However the description of “salted peanut praline sandwiched in jammy raspberry-white chocolate” was too enticing.  As always the Selector’s come in at £3.95 a pop or 3 for £10. There are a few newbies in town, and I hear there…

Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin

Happy Gin WednesdayGin has certainly exploded and you can pretty much buy it anywhere, and in any flavour. I’m relatively late to the gin party and only really started enjoying it a couple of years back. Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin is a newbie, and I first spotted it in Asda back in February. Originally this was nestled amongst the Valentine’s display but does not appear to be limited edition. This was exclusive to Asda, both in-stores and online, however you can now find this online on other drink outlets. RRP is £25.00 but is usually on offer in Asda for…
