Milk Chocolate Smarties Buttons

Did you know Smarties have been in the making since 1937? 83 years is a long old time, and 2020 is the year that they have had a little shake up and they now come in button form. As well as Milk Chocolate Smarties Buttons, they also come in white and orange flavoured chocolate. There are 2 sizes – single and sharing (which is optional). I am not too sure why the sharing bag weights differ between flavours. The milk chocolate gives you 90g in comparison to 85g with the other two. All three are slowly hitting supermarkets, and I found…

Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Forest Fruit

Beaulieu Chocolate Studio is nestled in the New Forest and they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh an where possible local ingredients. Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Forest Fruit bar is another newbie for me. Perusing their website is both a must but also dangerous, there are some serious delights on there. Amaretti (WANT), Banoffee, Coconut and Rocky Road chocolate, to chocolate shaped novelty items, speciality pieces and hot chocolate. This is a chocoholics mini paradise. At £3.95 a bar it is on the pricer side for chocolate, so let’s see if it is worth it. Handmade…

Cadbury Dairy Milk Mint Oreo

Happy Valentine’s Day! Nothing says love like chocolate so naturally that is the theme today. Yesterday saw the new Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Oreo bar which didn’t exactly fair well, but today is a new day and its compadre Cadbury Dairy Milk Mint Oreo is here.  I am not usually a mint chocolate fan unless it’s those After Eight Sticks they did, they were glorious. However as I was pretty impressed with the Oreo Mint Cookies and I thought this bar was worth a shot. Costing a joyful £1.00 for a 120g bar, I found this in Sainsbury’s no less.  Milk chocolate…

Mcvitie’s Digestives Thins Milk and Dark Chocolate

Thins seem to be all the rage, or perhaps it is to coax us into a less guilty state of biscuit eating when we are trying to eat healthy. Nonetheless after my love of the Oreo Thins I was pretty intrigued to see how Mcvitie’s Digestives Thins would pan out.  Aside from today’s offerings of Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Thins, Mcvitie’s Digestives Thins also comes in Cappuccino. Although not one for me I do like they have gone for traditional flavours as well as a flavour they don’t normally do. I found these Milk Chocolate Thins in Tesco Express…

Montezuma’s Peanut & Butterscotch Bar

Small panic that Montezuma’s had closed down in Woking however they have moved to the other side of the centre and have got a brand new shiny store. I found it slightly odd that everything was a lot more spaced out and yet they didn’t seem to have actually expanded their stock, which they could easily have done without it feeling crammed in there.  Their Nanny Goat Giant Bar, which essentially is a Peanut and Butterscotch bar caught my eye but not wanting a giant bar at £13.99, the lovely staff member highlighted I could get a slice of it…
