Christmas: Lindt Lindor Orange

If you don’t know already Lindt Lindor are heavenly balls of chocolatey goodness. Fact. I must admit I am still mourning the loss of the Lindor Peanut Butter but there are still plenty of other irresistible flavours to choose from. One of the newest residents in the flavour department is the Lindt Lindor Orange.  Where would we be without chocolate orange at christmas? Terry’s certainly put it on the map but Lindt are here to give it a run for its money.

Christmas: Waitrose Gingerbread Muffin

It’s Christmas week. Who is excited? This Christmas seems to be the year of the gingerbread. It’s everywhere and I love it! We’ve had M&S Gingerbread Teacakes and Viennese Creams, Butterkist Gingerbread Popcorn, Gingerbread Doughnuts, Gingerbread Porridge and now it is the turn of the Waitrose Gingerbread muffin.   This beast of a muffin is from the Waitrose bakery area and in its bright red wrapper this muffin cost £1.00 to take away, and £1.20 to eat in. Why it should cost an extra 20p for a plate and taking a seat I do not know.  Gingerbread muffin with crystallised ginger, stem ginger…

This time next week we shall be so full it’s going to be an effort even to think about moving. A Christmas dinner is not a Christmas dinner without the simple delight of sausages wrapped in bacon. After the most surprisingly delicious Cocoa and Spiced Rum crisps I couldn’t turn down the Tesco Finest Succulent Pigs in Blanket. I recall Tesco doing these last year but I didn’t get around to trying them, so I am pleased to see they have made an appearance this festive period.  Pigs in Blankets seem to be a hard crisps to master. Given it’s two types…

Christmas: M&S Winter Berries and Prosecco Crisps

M&S are always ones to push the boundaries and make us question whether sweet can be made into salty and if drinks can be made into food. Well in this case we have both. Enter M&S Winter Berries and Prosecco crisps. Okay despite my better judgement I was swayed by sheer curiosity and edible gold stars. There has been quite the trend with not so average crisps so why not make fruity ones? Visually these were oh so exciting. With the pink berry hue and the shimmery gold stars, these were delightfully festive and would sit comfortably on the party table.  Per…
