Mr Kipling After Dinner Chocolate Orange Fancies

French Fancies have gotten fancier! Part of the expanding Mr Kipling Signature Collection this collection first launched last year in response to the growing demand of wanting treats that give distinct, high quality flavours. Now there is another new flavour, Mr Kipling After Dinner Chocolate Orange Fancies. Each box contains 6 fancies in an inner cardboard box and cost £2.50. The packaging is certainly sleeker and more streamlined than before, and frankly you can’t really miss the vibrant orange.  Not exactly uniformed in the box, some appeared to have been launched in their individual wrappers. As you can see the usually…

McVities’s Pineapple Jaffa Cakes

Pineapple Jaffa Cakes are not something I ever imagined would be a thing. Normally McVitie’s stay within the safe realms of flavours such as lemon-lime, or strawberry, but they have put on their tropical hat and given us these funky pineapple cakes or biscuits (depending on which side of the fence you are?).  The packaging is brilliant, it is vibrant, eye catching and a marketing masterpiece. If you want to give them a try at the moment then they can be found in Tesco and also on Ocado for £1.00. Keeping the soft cake base and dark crackly chocolate topping,…

Orange Smarties Buttons

The trio is now complete and these are the ones that most Smarties lovers will be wanting to try, because everyone knows orange Smarties taste the best.  The milk and white chocolate varieties are widely available both in supermarkets and sizes. However these Orange Smarties Buttons are exclusive to Asda, and are only available in an 85g sharing bag. Sharing is of course optional.   They are little boring to even look at, especially in comparison to…

KitKat Senses Millionaires Shortbread

KitKat has had another upgrade and this time we have gold wrapping! Yes it is the trio of KitKat Senses which combines the classic wafer and chocolate combo with a thick creamy filling that is infused with an indulgent flavour. But what indulgent flavour I hear you ask? Well there is KitKat Senses Millionaires Shortbread, Cookie Dough or Salted Caramel.  Frankly I am a little over salted caramel, been there and everyone has done it. Cookie dough sounds delicious but their original KitKat Cookie Dough was lack lustre. So that leaves millionaires shortbread, which stand alone is one of the…

Metcalfe’s Jumbles Toffee Apple Popcorn

Last week saw the turn of Metcalfe’s Jumbles Eton Mess Popcorn and today it is the turn of it’s compadre Metcalfe’s Jumbles Toffee Apple Popcorn. If you read my review then you will know that Metcalfe’s have released two new flavours which promise to be a completely new popcorn experience.  Available in most supermarkets and online, this popcorn is gluten free, veggie friendly, and made without artificial flavours and colourings. RRP is £1.79 and the bag is 55g. As with most popcorn, crisps and snack packs there is an excess of packaging in comparison to actual contents.  Metcalfe’s have chosen another very…
