I haven’t reviewed a Reese’s product for a while so thought it was about time I did. I like the Reese’s brand- it is quite far removed from what we have available in the UK which gives it a little bit of a novelty value. How is it different to our chocolate? Well, obviously all of the peanut butter for a start. Whereas we English are occasionally thrown a limited edition bar with a bit of P.B, Americans get an entire brand dedicated to the stuff. This makes me envious.

I’ve been sat on these for a while. Not literally. But I was sent them by a PR team but have been more than a bit snowed under (once again, figuratively speaking) with university deadlines. However I’ve finally got round to eating them, which is good news because Golden Wonders’ limited edition HP sauce crisps, and their Heinz Tomato Ketchup option both ‘float my boat’ in theory. I laaaaav condiments in general, and aside from my beloved Henderson’s Relish, these two varieties come a close second as personal favourites.
I can’t quite believe that this is my first Milka review that I’m writing. The company, owned by Kraft, have been around for more than 40 years in Europe and has managed to gain a foothold in the UK market over the past 2-3 years and become a supermarket shelf regular. Instead of one of their usual 100g bars from a supermarket though, I’ve got something a little different of theirs to review- the M-Joy Peanuts and Flakes. I found this hidden away in a weird Eastern European specialist store in Norwich and snapped it up straight away, although I did think at the time it was a bit of a weird flavour combination…I mean, Peanuts and cornflakes? Righhhhhht Milka, good one lads.
Moving on from Thorntons’ new and limited edition summer range reviewed recently, today I’ve got something a bit more traditional- Thorntons are semi-legendary for their toffee and fudge and it seems to have been around for as long as time itself. Their toffee is also very popular amongst dentists…for keeping them in jobs. It isn’t their toffee I’m reviewing now though, but their fudge- in the form of their fudge milk chocolate 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.’
