Happy 1st of August Everyone! The sun is shining and summer is certainly here. Despite the downpours, heck it wouldn’t be the UK if we didn’t have those, we have done pretty well on the mini heatwave front and I am feeling summery.

The thins family has grown and now Maryland Cookies have jumped on the bandwagon with two new additions, Milk & Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel. I know some people are not a fan of the thins but I very much enjoyed the Oreo and McVitie’s versions, so I was very much looking forward to these Salted Caramel Maryland Thins.
