Frey Chocobloc Air

045I’ve done plenty of reviews of new companies recently on here, including my first forays into reviewing crisps, but today it’s back to a tried and trusted company of mine- Frey. The Swiss chocolate makers have churned out a succession of great bars of chocolate, some of which I’ve rated incredibly highly. This is my penultimate review of the chocolates they sent me last year, and it’s from their Chocobloc range- the Chocobloc Air.

Ritter Sport White Whole Hazelnuts

I always try and mention where I buy my review products from…purely because if they’re good, the chances are some of you might want to try them too. So far, I’ve had holiday chocolate, ordinary shops and supermarkets, Poundland/bargain shops and weird foreign foods places. Well today is my first train station review. I mean I’m reviewing a product bought from a train station shop, rather than a review of a train station itself. (Although I once bought a cheese and pickle sandwich from Doncaster train station that didn’t have any fecking pickle in it. Not cool Doncaster station. Not cool.)

Hershey’s Payday:

Everybody loves payday. You get your hard earned money to go and spend on whatever you choose. But the question from today’s review is does everybody love a Payday bar? Hershey’s unusually named product is a U.S import, and it set me back about £1.20 I think. Twice what you’d pay for a British bar admittedly but- when you remember that this has travelled well over 3,000 miles from the States over the Atlantic Ocean to England- not exactly terrible value for money either I suppose.

Heavenly Cakes Eton Mess

And here we are at the end of a very cake filled week- and the ONLY way to end the Heavenly Cakes’ Cake Olympics is with our very own entrant- the UK being represented by the Eton Mess cake. Eton Mess is a popular British dessert of meringue, cream and strawberries…well, messed up and served together. I love it during the summer- it’s a really light option. Whilst the UK has a reputation for serving heavy, fried dishes all year round, Eton Mess bucks that trend- it’s perfect in the summer as we can use our freshly grown strawberries to create a light and more ‘delicate’ dessert.


Heavenly Cakes Banoffee

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.
