Aside from the mass KitKat Chunky war where peanut butter one, obviously, KitKat have seemingly been churning out the Chunky bars in an array of flavours and not really told anyone about it. We have had Cookie Dough, Mocha and Double Caramel to name a few but now it is the turn of the KitKat Chunky New York Cheesecake. I wouldn’t have even known this had existed if it wasn’t for the lovely Charlotte and after her simple ‘it was so nice‘ I knew I had to give it a whirl. As always these gems tend to find themselves in Tesco…

I have spied the Oreo Cheesecake lurking in the freezer aisle many times. Always tempted but never taken the plunge, until today. I love Oreos as much as the next person but am dubious of frozen desserts, and after the Oreo Yoghurt I am right to have my reservations.  This 350g cheesecake was £3.00 from Sainsbury’s which I thought was a very reasonable price indeed. When it came to how to actually get the cheesecake out the plastic casing, the instructions were not brilliant. FYI the easiest way is to cut diagonal slits into the case and pull apart. To…

I am throwing it out there but I do not see the fascination of cheesecake. Aside from the biscuit base I am not all that in love with cheesecake and would rather sink my teeth into a different dessert. That said my taste buds were alight when I spied the Asda Peanut Butter Cheesecake whilst on my recent travels. Could this be the one that converts me into a cheesecake lover?  Part of Asda’s Extra Special Range this Peanut Butter Cheesecake was £4.00, pretty much an average price for the going cheesecake in supermarkets. This one serves 6 which is far…

Red Velvet is slowly but surely being incorporated into other varieties other than just cake. Red velvet cake is my favourite cake in all the land and I am all for it popping up in other forms just so long as it is done well. Today’s review is in homage to red velvet and is the Asda Red Velvet Cheesecake.  In a rare jaunt to Asda I picked this single cheesecake up from their fresh dessert aisle for £1.50. A little pricey but if you get it on offer for 2 for £2.00 it isn’t too bad.  I hate to report that it…

Sunday the day of rest and today’s review is Lacasa turrón de Cheesecake, and was part of some exciting goodies brought back for me from Spain. Pretty as a picture and despite not being a great cheesecake fan. I was looking forward to trying this rather different goodie. Nougat Praline Cheesecake As with all cheesecakes you have the biscuit base and cheesecake upper, and this is no different, albeit the two layers aren’t very visible to the eye. The first thing I noticed was the smell, and not a very nice smell, a cross between cheap quality white chocolate and sickly…
