M&S Milk and Cookies Granola

The M&S Christmas range is in full swing and not too long ago I reviewed their Red Velvet Curd. Sadly I wasn’t bowled over by it (read my review here if you missed it) so I am hoping the M&S Milk and Cookies Granola can help put us back on track.  Coming in at £2.50 a 500g box I was most surprised to see it that cheap. Most granolas are averaging around £4.00 so kudos to M&S for keeping this far more affordable and fair. So what can we expect from this granola? Well the description is – ‘Dark chocolate oat…

World Porridge Day: Porridge with a Savoury Twist?

Happy World Porridge Day! With the cold weather drawing in there are days when all you need is a bowl of something that warms you to the very core. I love porridge but when it comes to eating it I reach for the plain and simple, and on the odd occasion a drizzle of maple syrup or jam may get swirled on in there.

However no longer is this their only guilt free treat, the new range of chilled cheesecakes has been 2 years…

M&S Peanut Butter Bar

Last week we had the Battle of the Whips and next up in my M&S Chocolate adventure is this Peanut Butter Bar*. Yes as part of my big box of goodies that I received you would be correct in thinking that I was excited to see the M&S Peanut Butter Bar was included. Yes the addiction lives on, and I am always open to trying pretty much anything peanut butter.  This snack bar I believe costs around 75p and is the perfect size for a treat. With a mixture of milk and dark chocolate, caramel, crunchy peanut butter and roasted peanut…

Limited Edition M&S Red Velvet Curd

I know that some of you do not get the hype of red velvet however I am firmly a red velvet cheerleader. When I saw the release of the M&S Red Velvet Curd I knew without a shadow of a doubt my hands needed to get a hold of that jar.  Released as part of their Christmas range, I wasn’t at all sure on what this was going to taste like. Was it meant to be like red velvet whipped up in a jar, would it just be the colour of red velvet but taste nothing like it, would it just…
