Sometimes I lose things. Sometimes I forget things. Today, I’m reviewing a bar which was a victim of both of those events! I bought Montezuma’s Treacle Tart bar back in about July at the height of British summer and Olympic fever. I then contrived to lose the fecker for more than 6 months, before it randomly reappeared as if by magic underneath a mountain of university work and books.

There is always something a little exciting about trying a brand new chocolate company, and even more so when they’re local to you.

With the London Olympics starting next Friday, we’re currently getting bombarded in the UK with a range of Olympic themed products. However, to be frank, most of them are pretty terrible- effectively the same old food/drink but with a different sticker on the front. However Heavenly Cakes- a favoured company of mine- have announced not 1 but 6 brand new special edition cakes with an Olympic concept behind them. Each and every special cake of course has a clever link to a country which will be represented at the London Olympics.
I don’t know what it is about living out ‘in the sticks’, but new products seem to take aaaages to arrive here. This new popcorn product from Cadbury had seemingly arrived on shelves all over the country apart from Norwich. However at long last I found a bag in Tesco last week, on introductory offer for £1.
