Penn State Smoky BBQ, Sea Salted, and Sour Cream + Chive Pretzels

049I’ve been sat on these pretzels for a while. Not literally of course. I was kindly sent them by some PR people a long, long time ago (but not in a galaxy far, far away) and then didn’t review them for ages. Why? Well, as I’ve spoken about before, I don’t have a single place where I keep all of my snacks to review…meaning, occasionally, things can get ‘misplaced’. Then I found them, and thought I’d launch a new format- The Snack Review’s Savoury Saturday!  Yep, these pretzels from Penn State were once lost, but now they’re found. And going in my belly.

The Double Decker has just never floated my boat.

Elizabeth Shaw Orange Crisps

017I always look forward to trying new companies’ products. When you eat as much chocolate as I do, it can get a bit ‘samey’ from time to time as you try an ordinary flavour combination from an ordinary company. A product from a company you haven’t encountered before brings a little bit of excitement to proceedings though…because they might just shake things up and offer you something special or radically different. So whilst shopping in Waitrose just before Christmas, I took the plunge and bought some of Elizabeth Shaw’s Orange Crisp dark chocolates.

Novipiu White Chocolate and Sicilian Citrus Peel:

Every other blogger out there seems to be writing about food from Halloween/Autumn/Christmas ranges. Well, I’m a bit different (my parents and friends always did say that I’m ‘special’!) and instead I’m going to review a bar which was bought in sunny Malta in July on a summer holiday. This bar of chocolate must have been knocking around for a while, but I found it yesterday and thought it was about time it got its time to shine.
