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.

I’ve had a few ‘themed’ weeks recently. First there was Frey Week, then Australia Week…so when I saw that Mars UK were releasing two limited edition Snickers bars, I thought I’d take the opportunity to do a Snickers Week. So every day this week, I’l review a Snickers product, starting today with the classic Snickers bar, and taking in a couple of rarer, foreign Snickers along the way. But as mentioned, today we start with the ordinary and most common regular Snickers.
Pizza, Pasta and olive oil are some very Italian foods. Thankfully, Heavenly Cakes didn’t pick any of them when deciding which Italian food would feature as the Italian representative in their Olympic range, because let’s face it… nobody wants to eat a pasta cake. Instead, the company have taken what I think is traditionally an English food (the bakewell cake) and added a very Italian twist- this Lemon Bakewell contains real Sicilian lemon oil to give it that ‘citrusy kick’.
As far as I’m aware, Butlers are an Irish chocolate company based in Dublin. They seem to have their chocolates stocked in a couple of the supermarket chains but I haven’t seen it in many other places in England…making it all the more bizarre when I stumbled across this Honeycomb Crisp bar in a garden centre shop in rural Norfolk!
