Hotel Chocolat Lady Marmalade

Today’s review is 100% down to the recent Hotel Chocolat documentary. If you watched it you will recall in the first episode that the Hotel Chocolat Lady Marmalade was merely in the invention room. I have practically been dreaming about them since watching the show and finally I’ve managed to get hold of them, and am practical joyful that they made it to stores. The name, the look, the substance, it’s all on point. The Hotel Chocolat Lady Marmalade is a zesty citrus tang, gin marmalade chocolate cocktail, sounds wonderful doesn’t it!  These are suitable for vegetarians and are free from artificial…

McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes Nibbles

The McVitie’s nibbles family has grown and frankly abandoned the biscuit and gone for the cake. Oooops yes the cake bomb has dropped. Is a Jaffa Cake a cake or a biscuit who knows and who cares at this point, because all focus is on the Jaffa Cakes Nibbles. If you think these are going to be little morsels then think again because these are more like beastie bites in comparison to the Digestive and Hobnob counterparts. Nonetheless they are still bite-sized chocolatey balls with a sponge and orange jam centre, and coated in smooth milk and dark chocolate.  Currently on offer these were a…

Itsu Sweet Chocolate and Banana Dessert Dumplings

After a little break I am back and talking desserts. Nestled in the frozen aisle are these Itsu Sweet Chocolate and Banana Dessert Dumplings *. Itsu aren’t the first to twist their classic savoury dishes into a sweet dessert, but they’re certainly the first I’ve tried. The picture alone makes me want to dive right in, and can only hope they turn out as good as they look.  Coming in at £3.50 a pop, each box contains 15 dessert dumplings. These can be found in frozen aisles at  Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado. They come in three flavours, Chocolate & Banana, Caramelised Apple…
