Asda Lemon Bakewells and Toffee Bakewells

Bakewell Tarts are a humble classic that tick quite a few of the afternoon snack criteria. Traditionally with a jammy layer, frangipane and iced topping encased in a pastry outer, Asda have given the traditional a twist and made Lemon Bakewells and Toffee Bakewells. Being the intrigued beaver that I am and seeing if these really can be an alternative to the traditional Bakewell Tart, for £1 a pop I decided to take the plunge and give these a whirl.  Asda Lemon Bakewells Triple layered with lemon flavoured curd, citrus sponge and lemon fondant I love the look of these, they…

Snyder’s of Hanover Salted Caramel Pretzel Pieces

I first came across Snyder’s of Hanover when I reviewed their very delicious Peanut Butter Pretzel Sandwiches. Ever since then it would appear that there has been a Snyder’s of Hanover explosion because everywhere I go I keep finding them, maybe it’s a sign so not one to deny such things I opted for these Snyder’s of Hanover Salted Caramel Pretzel Pieces.  Mixing the sweet with the savoury, Snyder’s have taken the humble savoury sourdough pretzel pieces and flavoured them with buttery salted caramel and packaged them in a handy handbag size.  Buttery caramel is accented with flecks of salt on…

Cadbury Flake Celebration Cake

The Cadbury Flake Celebration cake is back! I had its predecessor a few years ago and it was delicious and I certainly couldn’t believe that they discontinued it there after.

Ritter Sport Cornflakes

I first came across Ritter Sport with their Rum packed Rum & Raisin Bar and have been eagle eyed at what other bars they have to offer. Whilst whipping into Sainsbury’s the other week all of their Ritter Sport bars were a bargain price of 80p each and I decided to go in for the breakfast crunch and try Ritter Sport Cornflakes.  Airing on the side of breakfast, Ritter Sport have taken crunchy Cornflakes and enrobed them with milk chocolate to give us breakfast around the clock! The bar was made up of thick smallish chunks with Ritter Sport emblazoned on…

Asda Banoffee Bombs and Blue Yorkers

On a wee trip to Asda I spied some new fresh desserts on offer by Asda. Asda appear to have quite a range out that include Dessert Islands, Honey Teasers, Afternoon Tea and what today’s review is all about, Banoffee Bombs and Blue Yorkers. Banoffee Bombs – £2.00 Banana mousse with fudge and toffee flavour sauces, sponge pieces and toffee chips. I am having a love affair for anything banana flavoured recently and was pretty excited to find these. Tucking in these were light as a feather. The first layer of mousse was smooth, airy and packed full of authentic…
