Choc Chick Quinoa Pops and Plantain Bites

Fresh on the food scene these Choc Chick Quinoa Pops and Plantain Bites only launched on the 13th October. Ethically sourced natural raw cocoa, Choc Chick have chosen the single origin Nacional Arriba Fino de Aroma bean, as it’s renowned for its floral and fruity notes. They also work with cooperatives of family farms that have been growing cacao for generations and are proud to shout out that they can trace each batch from the plantation to fermentation, drying and production.

M&S Peanut Butter Bar

Last week we had the Battle of the Whips and next up in my M&S Chocolate adventure is this Peanut Butter Bar*. Yes as part of my big box of goodies that I received you would be correct in thinking that I was excited to see the M&S Peanut Butter Bar was included.

KitKat Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge

Sweet meets salty with the new KitKat Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge. After the winner that was their New York Cheesecake (Review) and the Lemon Drizzle (Review) original KitKat, I cannot deny that I was excited to see the KitKat Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge was going to be the latest addition to the family. I am a little surprised that it has taken this long for salted caramel to make an appearance given the craze where we saw it in pretty much everything. For those of you wondering this chunky number is a combination of crispy wafer with a salted caramel fudge flavoured…
