Nak'd Cherry Bakewell Bar

The Nak'd brand are on a roll at the moment with their delicious new bars that they have recently brought out, what with their Christmas Pud bar that I reviewed a few weeks ago. I really enjoy Bakewell tarts with their tasty pastry cases and yummy almondy frangipani filling, topped off with a devilishly sweet glace cherry so as you can imagine I was excited when I heard of a cherry bakewell bar. 
I made it my mission to find this bar, scouring Asda, Tesco, and Sainsbury for this elusive bar because I knew that I just had to get my hands on it to try! The flavour was incredible, it seriously tasted of a cherry bakewell it was amazing! It was sweet and almondy with a tasty hint of cherry that just perfected the whole experience.

Toffee Apple Soreen

Halloween treats and Christmas treats are always a delight to sample what with the abundance of comforting flavours that we all know and love and often with an unusual twist.

So today i am going to review the new Toffee Apple Soreen and basically it is delicious. It had the classic squishy texture that you would associate with Soreen but with a delightful toffee twist that worked very well with the apple. I couldn't help but think that this would be absolutely perfect with lashings of custard on a cold winter evening! I personally prefer the smaller individual loaves because I often find that the larger ones are such a nuisance to cut because it ends up squashed (I know some people will protest and say that is all a part of the Soreen experience!)

So overall I really did enjoy this and it was a tasty treat that got me into the mood for Halloween!

Ben & Jerry's Minter Wonderland

I feel that mint is an often ignored flavour when it comes to sweet things and is often overlooked for the more traditional peanuts, caramel or toffee. Only ever associated with After Eight mints but that is no more, because Ben & Jerry's have released a delicious new flavour called 'Minter Wonderland' (a name that I can't help but smile at!) so obviously it became my top priority to get a tub to try!
I certainly did not regret it because the flavour was lovely, the ice cream is vanilla with a slight hint of mint which worked really well against the massive chunks of mint chocolate and helped keep it refreshing and not too cloying. Basically I loved this flavour and am sad that it will only be a limited edition so I intend upon eating it until I hate it haha!

Nakd Christmas Pud Bar

Tis the season of Christmas treats and I must say I am very excited and the first limited edition Christmas item that I have tried this year is the Nakd Christmas Pud bar. The wrapping of the bar was lovely, festive and left me desperately wanting to tear into it and try it. Most Christmas puddings are typically vegan so I was expecting a similar flavour and I certainly was not disappointed! The flavour was classically comforting and had a little crunch in it from the nuts which worked wonderfully with the rich and fruity flavour.
Basically I loved this bar, it was delicious and left me feeling satisfied, plus I knew it was a healthy snack so what else could I want?!
