Fox’s Rocky Peanut Butter

Let’s just say when the lovely Charlotte told me about Fox’s Rocky Peanut Butter Bars I went into a bit of an excited frenzy. Rocky bars were one of my favourite chocolate bars when I was a kid and a staple in my lunchbox. After searching 5 supermarkets, yes 5, I was still no better off until Charlotte saved the day, because she is totes amazing, and sent me a pack.  These new bars come in an 8 pack, are a beautifully rounded price of £1.00 and are vegetarian friendly. The list of ingredients is scarily long so best not…

Oreo Thins Original & Chocolate Creme

I have spied Oreo Thins on varying American websites and now they have finally skipped across the pond and hit our shelves. Thin does bring apprehensions because there is nothing better than a delightfully squidgy Oreo a la the American style, but never one to turn down a biscuit these were a must try.  Oreo Thins currently comes in two flavours, Original and Chocolate Creme. I am not really a Chocolate Creme fan but I cannot have one without the other here. The premise behind these Thins is apparently because they wanted to give us adults a ‘sophisticated’ on the go…

Weight Watchers Mini Custard Cream Bites

Weight Watchers regularly release a few new products and I had a mini jump for joy when I saw these Weight Watchers Mini Custard Cream Bites. Despite the use of mini, because let’s face it mini snacks leave you wanting more, I still had to throw these in my basket. I used to eat custard creams and bourbons for that matter like they were going out of fashion. Nowadays I prefer Hobnobs with my cuppa but every now and again a custard cream will slip on in. Weight Watchers have harnessed this humble cream filled biscuit to give it a…

McVitie’s Hobnobs Milk Chocolate Nibbles

Finally I have these McVitie’s Hobnobs Milk Chocolate Nibbles in my possession, well actually it was last week but hey-ho. I have been saying ever since the original McVitie’s Digestives versions that I hope they bring out a Hobnob version and low and behold almost a year later dreams do become a reality.  The Nibbles range has certainly been a winner and, rightly so, McVitie’s have decided the time is right to expand the range and I couldn’t agree more. This little 120g packet was on offer for £1.00 in Tesco and is currently available in just the milk chocolate flavour.…

Reese’s Rounds

Branching out from the peanut butter cups Hershey’s has stepped foot into new realms with Reese’s Rounds. I have seen mixed feelings about these but that isn’t going to stop me from trying them myself.  I found this 8 pack of chocolate covered biscuits in Waitrose for an okay price of £1.50. The biscuits sat in a segregated black tray which certainly reduced the risk of any unnecessary breakages. Huzzah.  Crunchy biscuits with a peanut butter filling and covered in milk chocolate. Per biscuit: 96 kcal, 3.2g sat fat, 5.2g sugar, 2g protein.  These were certainly thick round biscuits. The biscuit itself…
