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 biscuit itself…

Christmas: M&S Viennese Gingerbread Creams

My love for gingerbread continues today in the form of biscuits. Now these aren’t just any gingerbread creams, these are M&S Gingerbread Viennese Creams.

Each pack contains 8 viennese creams in sets of two in a plastic tray. In comparison to the exceedingly good Mr Kiplings’, M&S have gone for a far lighter buttered shortbread and spolodges of buttercream filling to avoid the potential for slippage, as well as giving them a far more uniformed appearance. The biscuit itself wasn’t as short as I had expected so…

Monster Munchies: Cadbury Screme Egg Biscuits

Before Mondelez International decided to be plonkers and change the Creme Egg recipe, yes Mondelez we have noticed and we hate you for it, I used to love the Creme Egg biscuits and Creme Eggs for that matter. Since that change I didn’t bother buying any last year however as we are on a Halloween Monster Munchies mission today we have the limited edition Cadbury Screme Egg Biscuits. Will these be a trick or a treat?  I take no credit for these at it was the Daddio who spotted these in the local corner shop and bought them for me…
