Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams

If you haven’t seen the Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams where have you been? These sneaked on the shelves with no warning, but give a glimpse of summer flavours to come.  My mum is a self proclaimed Custard Cream Queen. What gives her this title? 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.

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.

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…

It’s become impossible to choose a favourite flavour however I do tend to lean more on the sweeter side of things.  Mostly available in farm shops…

Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices

It’s another newbie on the cake scene, well sort of. These Mr Kipling Lemonade and Elderflower Cake Slices are inspired by the Royal Wedding Cake picked by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. To be fair that isn’t the reason why these landed in the basket, they just sounded utterly delicious.  These slices have been available in Tesco for a little while and are filtering through to other supermarkets. Coming in at £1.50 a pack, each box is filled with 6 slices. Lemon and elderflower are a proven hit combination so hopes are high. They were a tad sticky and…
