Nature Valley Peanut Chocolate Cups

It has been far too long since we had a peanut butter review. However no credit can be taken for these Nature Valley Peanut Chocolate Cups because this was a little gift, amongst other goodies, from a little Cupcake Snack Warrior!  I have spied these in the supermarkets and are part of Nature Valley’s Nut Butter range. Whether these are more for a snack or brekkie alternative, who knows, either way these are described as follows.  Crunchy biscuit cups with wholegrain oats and chocolate pieces, a chocolate flavoured base, peanut butter flavoured filling and peanut pieces.  Each box comes with…

McVitie’s Digestives Twists Chocolate Chip and Caramels Bits

New biscuit alert! Yes the all rounder Digestive Biscuit has had a bit of a sprucing. McVitie’s has launched a new range of Digestive biscuits in two new flavours. The McVitie’s Digestives Twists Chocolate Chip and Caramels Bits and Chocolate and Coconut.  They launched in Asda a few month’s ago, however have only just seen them filter to Tesco, which is where I picked these up.

Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams

If you haven’t seen the Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams where have you been?

She eats an abundance every week and has pretty much worked her way around the Custard Cream scene in search of the tip top cream. Which FYI she has voted Tesco as the top dog here.  It was a priority mission that these were obtained asap and we picked these up a few weeks ago…

Limited Edition Strawberry Jaffa Cakes

The Strawberry Jaffa Cakes are back. Yes they first made their appearance a year or so ago and have come back around. Why I am not too sure. Perhaps it is down to summer fast approaching and these certainly seem like more of a summer flavour.  I am quite traditional when it comes to Jaffa Cakes and I don’t think I tried the Strawberry version first time around. That being said I thought heck why not give them ago. After all strawberry and chocolate is a grand combination.  Keeping the soft cake base and dark chocolate topping, instead of a…

Maryland Cookies Desserts Mississippi Mud Pie and New York Cheesecake

Is it a cookie or a biscuit? It has the hallmarks of a cookie with its looks and choc chips, but it screams biscuit with its shorter crumblier texture. Maryland Cookies aren’t really the go, but when I spied the Maryland Cookies Desserts range I couldn’t resist giving them a try. The range has certainly grown from just the humble choc chip, double choc and hazelnut variety and now includes Maryland Wonders, Big & Chunky, Sugar Free and Maryland Cookies Desserts. These come in two flavours, Mississippi Mud Pie and New York Cheesecake.  Randomly these were found in the foodie…
