Heavenly Cakes Nanaimo Bar

I had no idea what a Nanaimo Bar was when I saw this on the front of the Heavenly Cakes wrapper. I actually had to go and Google it to find out what flavours were involved. Of course, had I bothered to read the information sheet which came with my Olympic themed cake selection (probably a smart thing to do with the benefit of hindsight!) I would have found the very helpful and concise description from Heavenly Cakes; that the Nanaimo Bar was ‘a chocolate biscuit base, custard filling topped with plain chocolate.’


Thorntons- Banana and Custard Chocolate

Last week, I reviewed Thorntons’ Jam Roly Poly Truffles which come from their summer range, ‘The Best of British’. Following on from that, I have another of their summer chocolates to look at today, this time a proper bar of chocolate.  Described as ‘white chocolate with sweetened banana chips, vanilla seeds and custard flavour’ I was hoping for something a bit better than the Jam Roly Poly Truffles.
