Happy 2018 Everyone! It is practically half way through January, how can this be? Today marks my first post of the year, yes I could do a nice healthy number but the chocolate has won me over. Last year we had the Hotel Chocolat Treacle Tart, which in its entirety was pretty good, however it is now the turn of a banana classic, enter Hotel Chocolat Banoffee Pie.  Of the two I have tried this is the one I was most excited about because of the banana element. Typically getting the banana flavour right is a tricky business, it is…

Banana is such a delicious flavour but so underused. You can bet your bottom dollar that if there is something banana flavoured I am going to want to try it and today is no exception with the new Collective For Kids Banana n Vanilla yoghurt. I have seen their tantalising flavours but have partaken in a Collective yoghurt until now.

I think it is important to mention here that these are a chocolatiers take on the…

I have a confession to make. I have never tried Soreen. I feel it is a right of passage that you have to have had this malty fruity loaf however it’s just not something I have ever got round to having. I think Soreen’s spidey senses were tingling because the lovely people at Soreen kindly sent me all of their various Fruit Loaves to try. Now why did I agree to give these a whirl? Well I must say other than sure curiosity and the love of an afternoon treat, it boiled down to the Banana loaf! Banana flavoured things are so…

The spirit of summer is well and truly alive in M&S and they have plenty of new products to tantalise anyones tastebuds. A strong theme that is evident in the new range is Dulce De Leche, they have gone a bit crazy on the stuff, but heck I’m not complaining nor can I blame them as this stuff is delicious. We have hit the dessert aisle in today’s review with M&S Banana & Dulce De Leche Slices. Alert we have an annoying inner packaging situation here. Yes I know you want to keep these slices looking as beautiful as possible…
