Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb

Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb, could it be as fantastic as it sounds? These artisan confectioners are known for their buttery fudge, chewy honeycomb and varying brittles, and come the festive season even they cannot resist getting into the spirit of things. With endless choices the Buttermilk Gingerbread Honeycomb is certainly the one that caught my eye, how can they combine the two? Handmade in their kitchen’s in Cornwall, these sizeable chunks of honeycomb are suitable for vegetarians, have no nasty artificial flavourings and are gluten free. A 150g box comes in at £3.99. I love the cute packaging, it may just be…

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…

Christmas: M&S Viennese Gingerbread Creams

My love for gingerbread continues today in the form of biscuits. Now these aren’t just any gingerbread creams, these are M&S Gingerbread Viennese Creams. After the triumphant Mr Kipling Gingerbread Whirls I do wonder how M&S can top them. Each pack contains 8 viennese creams in sets of two in a plastic tray. In comparison to the exceedingly good Mr Kiplings’, M&S have gone for a far lighter buttered shortbread and spolodges of buttercream filling to avoid the potential for slippage, as well as giving them a far more uniformed appearance. The biscuit itself wasn’t as short as I had expected so…

Christmas: Butterkist Gingerbread Popcorn

Eeeeew it’s two weeks till Christmas!!! Gingerbread is everywhere this season and I am LOVING it! Finally brands have realised we love the gingerbread and it shouldn’t just be confined to a Jamaican Ginger Cake, although nothing beats said cake! Today is the turn of Butterkist Gingerbread Popcorn. This festive 150g themed bag was a reasonable £1.50 from Ocado. As with pretty much all popcorn it is gluten free, is suitable for vegetarians and has no artificial flavours or colourings, huzzah!  Popcorn coated with a Cinammon & Ginger flavour toffee (67%). Per 100g: 412 kcal, 2.3g sat fat, 50.6g sugar, 2.9g…

Christmas: M&S Gingerbread Teacakes

Last week saw the Battle of the Festive Sarnies and this week sees all things festive continue and it is only right we start with the first Christmas good I purchased. Yes, I have braved the new M&S Gingerbread Teacakes. Their Red Velvet and Dulce de Leche ones were less than desirable in taste and didn’t exactly do well on conveying what they were meant to be; so you can imagine my apprehension here with these Gingerbread Teacakes.  Now the reason I hop-footed it down to M&S when I heard these had hit the shelves was purely my love of gingerbread.…
