Monster Munchies: Mr Kipling Chocolate & Slime Slices

Mr Kipling is the king of cake bars and treats so it is only fair that he has joined in on the ghost and ghouls of Halloween and given us Mr Kipling Chocolate & Slime slices. I certainly love a cheeky Mr Kipling snack so naturally this was going to be on the agenda.  With a suitably Halloweenesque box, each is packed with 3 sealed trays each containing two cake slices.

This doughnut marks the end of the comeback doughnuts and like all the others were, it is available for the next two weeks.  For those regular readers you will know I have been less than impressed.
