Itsu Sweet Chocolate and Banana Dessert Dumplings

After a little break I am back and talking desserts. Nestled in the frozen aisle are these Itsu Sweet Chocolate and Banana Dessert Dumplings *. Itsu aren’t the first to twist their classic savoury dishes into a sweet dessert, but they’re certainly the first I’ve tried. The picture alone makes me want to dive right in, and can only hope they turn out as good as they look.  Coming in at £3.50 a pop, each box contains 15 dessert dumplings. These can be found in frozen aisles at  Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado. They come in three flavours, Chocolate & Banana, Caramelised Apple…

However no longer is this their only guilt free treat, the new range of chilled cheesecakes has been 2 years…

How is this possible? Surely there must be a catch? Retailing at a…

Gü Mousse Fusions Strawberry

A little while back I reviewed the new Gü Fusions Mango and Passionfruit Mousse and it was to die for so I was hoping for similar things with their other variety Gü Mousse Fusions Strawberry. It seems like an obvious flavour choice and I kind of wish they had gone for something a little different, but you can’t really go wrong with strawberry. The aim of this new range is to make us adults happy. Research suggests that chilled mousse is predominantly aimed at kiddies and Gu wanted to give something a tad more premium that we adults would love, and who…
