Beaulieu Pistachio Chocolate

Pistachio is my all time favourite nut. Salt it, roast it, plain out the shell, if there are pistachios about I am going to eat them. So when I visited Beaulieu Chocolate Studio and spied their Beaulieu Pistachio Chocolate bar it was certain that this was coming home with me.  Nestled in the New Forest they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh and where possible local ingredients. This is a chocoholics mini paradise. At £3.95 a bar it is on the pricer side for chocolate, but so far I have had a few bars from…

Aero Dark Cherry Truffle Chocolate Bar

Listen up Aero lovers because this is certainly a post you are going to want to read! Aero Dark Cherry Truffle Chocolate bar is something to get excited about, primarily because it isn’t the bog standard flavour that’s on our UK shelves.  First and foremost hopes will not be dashed because you can get your hands on this bar, albeit at a higher price. Being quick is also paramount as it tends to sell out quite quickly. This bar is from one of the go-to sites, American Fizz and it is also available on Ebay. There are a few Canadian Aero…

Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices

It’s another newbie on the cake scene, well sort of. These Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices are inspired by the Royal Wedding Cake picked by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. To be fair that isn’t the reason why these landed in the basket, they just sounded utterly delicious.  These slices have been available in Tesco for a little while and are filtering through to other supermarkets. Coming in at £1.50 a pack, each box is filled with 6 slices. Lemon and elderflower are a proven hit combination so hopes are high. They were a tad sticky and…
