Hotel Chocolat Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector

It’s October which means Halloween is coming!! Although normally I would run a mile with anything spider like, these I welcomed with open arms. Why? Peanut Butter of course! Yes these Hotel Chocolat Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector are milk chocolate creepy-crawlies filled with smooth peanut butter with a dash of Guérande salt. There are quite a few options in their Halloween Collection and include the Spooky Spider Chocolate Selector, Beastly Bites, Choose your Poison Cocktails, Skulls, Vampires and even a Halloween Party Kit. Of the stores I have visited there has been pretty much everything there but you can of course also…

Limited Edition Cookie Dough Munchies

It has been over 20 years since Munchies gave us new flavours and now they have not only given us one, but two flavours. I recently reviewed the new Chocolate Fudge Brownie Munchies – review here, which frankly were a very sweet disappointment. Today it is the turn of the Cookie Dough Munchies, and I am hoping they fair far better.  Incase you aren’t au fait with the original Munchies they are square, filled with soft caramel and a small round biscuit in the middle, all of which is encased in a thick chocolate coating. For those who love the classic these…

KitKat Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

It has been a while since we have had a Krispy Kreme Doughnut on the blog. This is firstly because I no longer work in a town with a Krispy Kreme shop/stall (I know what sorcery is this). And two because the recent additions haven’t exactly been over enticing. That being said the new KitKat Krispy Kreme Doughnuts had me intrigued and wanting to give them a go.  Signature doughnut, dipped in milk chocolate or White Chocolate flavour icing, topped with crushed KitKat pieces and a milk / white chocolate KitKat Bite.  I love a KitKat and I love the original glazed Krispy Kreme so…

Beefeater Blood Orange Gin

This isn’t a new gin flavour as such, but it is a newbie to Beefeater. I am pretty much obsessed with all things blood orange so when Beefeater Blood Orange Gin was released, it was a must try.  There are 10 different botanicals in this gin ranging from coriander seed, liquorice root, lemon peel and of course Seville orange peel and blood orange flavour. This gin promises fresh citrus flavours of blood orange that tune perfectly with the classic notes of juniper and citrus of Beefeater Gin.  When news broke that the Beefeater Blood Orange Gin was hitting shelves, it…

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Munchies

You have most likely seen these Chocolate Fudge Brownie Munchies all over the internet and social media. There is a good reason for that because this and their new Cookie Dough Flavour are an exciting Munchies adaptation.  The original Munchies are square, filled with soft caramel and a small round biscuit in the middle, all of which is encased in a thick chocolate coating. For those who love the classic these are promised to be just as good, but with the addition of a chocolate fudge brownie ganache. I can take no credit for this find as it was the mothership who…
