A little while back I reviewed the new Gü Fusions Mango and Passionfruit Mousse and it was to die for so I was hoping for similar things with their other variety Gü Mousse Fusions Strawberry. It seems like an obvious flavour choice and I kind of wish they had gone for something a little different, but you can’t really go wrong with strawberry. The aim of this new range is to make us adults happy. Research suggests that chilled mousse is predominantly aimed at kiddies and Gu wanted to give something a tad more premium that we adults would love, and who…

I wouldn’t blame you for doing a double take on today’s blog post because I certainly did in the shop. Strawberry Nut M&Ms are an actual thing! Any American’s or avid American chocolate lovers will know that M&M’s did chocolate covered strawberry M&M’s last year, however the difference here is they’ve thrown peanuts into the mix.  Now I understand Strawberry M&M’s because well strawberries and chocolate is just so YES, but plonking a big ol peanut in there is pretty intriguing.  I spied these in my trusty Garden Centre Longacres (where I also found Mint M&M’s) and they were instantly…

I have never had the pleasure of having Tim Tam’s but I have heard wonderful things from my Aussie friends and as soon as I saw these I knew I had to have them. Apparently 669 million Tim Tam’s are eaten every year in Australia, now that is a lot of Tim Tam’s and goes to show they must be good. Fresh sweet strawberry combined with the crisp yet velvety flavour of champagne, coated in Arnott’s famous milk chocolate. These Tim Tam Strawberry Champagne numbers were part of the limited edition mocktail collection and sat along with Pina Colada, Espresso Martini…

Popcorn, it’s a glorious thing, do we all agree? I have tried my fair share and there are an infinite amount of flavour combinations to keep us all going. New on the indulgent bandwagon is Tesco Strawberry Pepper Dark Chocolate and Toffee Nut Latte Popcorn.  Both 170g packets cost £1.79 a piece, a very reasonable price for the more snazzier types of popcorn. Sitting alongside these two Tesco Finest popcorns are Fiery Ginger, Peppermint Cream, and Mango & Coconut, which certainly for Tesco, pushes popcorn to new realms.   Toffee coated popcorn with Strawberry, Black Pepper and Belgian Dark Chocolate Glossy and…

Birthday equals cake it is as simple as that! Over the last year we have had the bitterly disappointing Jammie Dodger Cake and the sweet and little dry Cadbury Chocolate Flake, so this month we decided to stick to the good old chocolate cake and went for the new M&S Connie Caterpillar Cake. Colin has gone and got himself a girlfriend and isn’t she just oh so pretty, look at that beautiful face with enviable eyelashes. The Caterpillar cake is the pinnacle of birthday’s, Colin is of course the undisputed King; even Mr Beckham indulged in him this year! Colin certainly takes me back to my childhood so naturally when…
