Total Raspberry and Pomegranite Split Pot

Upon my initial tasting of the fruity compote I thought that it was far too sweet to be enjoyable, that was until I decided to be brave and do something totally unlike me and mix the compote with the actual yogurt ! As a general rule I don't allow my food to touch or mix together so believe me when I say that this combination must be good for me to do it.
By doing this simple act an undeniable taste sensation occurred in the pot. It was thick, creamy, flavoursome and basically delicious! The flavour of the raspberry is dominant in the compote compared to the rather muted flavour of the pomegranate. Now I do realise that the price of this yogurt is a tad pricey in comparison to other yogurts, but you honestly get what you pay for with the high quality authentic Greek yogurt, and not simply the Greek style yogurt that is more widely available in supermarkets which in my opinion don't even come close in comparison (gosh that sounds dreadfully snobby when I read that last sentence back so I do apologise).

Limited Edition Millionaire's Shortbread Muller Corner

I was quite excited when I found out that the new millionaires shortbread muller corner was suitable for vegetarians as the last limited edition that they brought out sadly was not (the orange one) 
In my head I had envisaged caramel yogurt with an actual layer of caramel, this perhaps was my downfall as I had bigged up this product in my head to be this magical taste sensation so you can imagine my disappointment when I found out that it was actually just the basic caramel yogurt which tasty as it was, just didn't live up to my expectations, so now I move onto the biscuits in the little side section, the plain ones had very little taste to them and only really added a crunchy texture, they could have done with perhaps a little salt to try and bring out the sweetness of the other components. The chocolate coated biscuits were rather lovely and added a good amount of flavour despite them being quite limited.
Overall it was a nice enough yogurt but I don't really think that it was as inspiring or interesting as it could have been.

Apple and Cinnamon Chobani

With the creaminess that you would expect from a full fat yogurt I could not help but love this brand new flavour of chobani yogurt and I hadn't even gotten to the best part, the delicious apple and cinnamon compote hidden away at the bottom, 

The best way to describe this flavour is like a luxury home made apple pie, the cinnamon adds a lovely taste that gives the compote a pastry feel to it, as though you are eating an actual apple pie and not just the filling that I initially expected.
This is a must for all apple pie lovers who are conscious of what they put into their body as the ingredients are natural, this is further instilled with the new and minimalist packaging which I absolutely love! Overall a great product and this has to be my absolute favourite chobani flavour yet and I look foreword to all future flavours that are brought out here in the UK.

Cadbury Crispello Vanilla Velvet

I saw this in Tesco whilst on my weekly mooch around the shops and was instantly drawn in by the lovely, shiny-purple wrapper. I am a massive fan of the original flavour of the Cadbury Crispello, so you can imagine my utter delight!
The Cadbury Crispello is predominantly targeted at the diet conscious woman as they are supposed to be eaten in three separate serving, I however found these to be far too moreish to resist and ate them all in one go. 
The chocolate coating was the good quality Cadburys milk chocolate flavour that we all know and love, the coating of the chocolate itself was relatively thin, but this is not a criticism at all from me because it allowed the taste of the creamy vanilla filling to take centre stage. 
The wafer part was crispy and held its shape well so as to keep crumbs to a minimum, they were light to eat and worked well as a treat to have along side my lunch.
Overall I really enjoyed this flavour variety more than the original which its creamier vanilla taste, I feel that there is a lot of potential for this product in terms of filling, for example a caramel, hazelnut or even a fruity variety!

Linda McCartney Cottage Pie

This is a really delicious cottage pie, that in my opinion is quite unique in comparison to both meat and non meat varieties as the mash topping is sweet potato rather than the traditional white potato that can sometimes be a tad bland if not seasoned well.
The sweet potato added a lovely sweetness (a little obvious but still very true) and was creamy, smooth and  really helped to enhance and balance the earthy flavours of the lentils that were soft yet still retained a bite to them. The cottage pie itself was a good size that is perfect either by itself for lunch or with a side of beans for dinner. Overall I thought that this was a flavoursome cottage pie that can be enjoyed by both veggies and meat eaters.
