Peanut Butter Rolos

Just when you thought a Rolo was always going to be a Rolo, Nestlé Canada have done something that us peanut butter addicts are joyful about. Combining the taste of peanut butter and creamy milk chocolate, Peanut Butter Rolos have been born.  Stumbling across these was a pure fluke and I hadn’t a clue of their existence. I found these on American Fizz for a slightly eye watering price of £4.99 for a 170g bag, but as you can see I still bought them! In essence they haven’t lost the Rolo factor and are still in the classic shape and spit…

M&S Belgian Milk Chocolate Cashews

The M&S chocolate adventure continues today with the M&S Belgian Milk Chocolate Cashews. Next to pistachios, cashews are my favourite nuts especially when they are caramelised honey ones, god I could eat them forever!!  Aside from the different packaging, these aren’t new to the snacking aisle and have been around for a couple of years. I don’t usually reach for the chocolate nuts because they tend to have a weird twang to them, particularly if mixed with raisins.

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. Yes the addiction lives on, and I am always open to trying pretty much anything peanut butter.  This snack bar I believe costs around 75p and is the perfect size for a treat. With a mixture of milk and dark chocolate, caramel, crunchy peanut butter and roasted peanut…

Battle of the Whips: M&S Walnut Whips vs Mini Salted Caramel Whips

Yes today is a battle, a mighty fine one at that. M&S is the king for traditional Walnut Whips but they haven’t stopped there, oh no, they have added to the family by shrinking them and giving us Mini Salted Caramel Whips.  These M&S Walnut Whips* and Mini Salted Caramel Whips* were part of my very exciting delivery of goodies from Marks and Spencer Food PR, which if you follow on Instagram you would have seen a sneak peak! It was pretty hard to decide which to tuck into first, but the salted caramel won me over. Milk chocolate filled with…
