I bought some of those carnation rice pudding sachets today, i'm excited to try them. And to see the disgusted look on my dad's face when I show him them. haha

Anyway, it is a chocolate hazelnut spread (so like Nutella, I hope) with Antony Worrall Thompson's face on the front. That might be enough to put you off your toast, but I'll probably give it a try at some pint.


I got some of this last time I was in Sainsbury's. My mum reckons it's nicer than Nutella because she always thought that was too sweet and milky. I rate it better than Chocoreale after they changed the recipe but not as good as Chocoreale was about ten years ago, if that's any good to anyone? (in other words it's nice.)

In the same vein, has anyone tried ASDA's dark chocolate spread?

I have been trying so hard not to buy this, and I am finally giving in. CURSE YOU!

I saw the chocolate covered raisins in sainsbury's today. £2.89 for a 75g bag!!! I though fork that and bought Choices caramels instead.

As much as I really really want a chocolate covered raisin, I can't pay that much for a bag in good conscience.
I'll pay £0.99 for a bag of trail mix and £0.78 for semi-sweet chocolate drops and pair raisins and chocolate and pretend.

chocolate covered raisins are probably easy enough to make yourself, anyway. can't imagine why they'd be so expensive, unless they have to be manufactured in a certified allergy-free environment.

I have. It's okay, pretty similar taste-wise to a very easy sauce I make to go over Swedish Glace and/or brownies which is just marge, cocoa and golden syrup in roughly equal quantities heated up to bubbling in a saucepan.

I bought a loaf of La Brea walnut bread from Tescos today, after being pleasantly surprised that it was labelled as being suitable for vegans. It is so, so good, and it's nice to be able to get bread from a supermarket without wondering about suspicious-looking e-numbers.

Yes. It's pleasant but nowhere near as good as the Whole Earth one, which ASDA also sell.

Sadly, no. We're still working on getting all the paperwork together for my visa application, but my son does have both of his passports now.

My husband sends care packages quite frequently and I was going to tell him to get some if it was any good.


Thanks for the reviews, dropscone and sluggie!

Question: at Waitrose the other day I saw their holiday "dried fruit selection" tray which included figs, medjool dates, apricots... and marzipan (maybe nuts, too?). It didn't appear to be non-vegan, but I wanted to know if a) anyone has had it before and if it's good and b) if anyone knows if the marzipan is vegan.

Sorry I didn't get the ingredients list for the marzipan.

Marzipan should be vegan, most supermarket brands of it are - occasionaly some companies put egg white in, so you'd need to check it!

Is it just plain marzipan, not chocolate covered or anything?

I did not notice anything outstanding and noticeable like egg white- just didn't copy down things I was unsure about. Plain marzipan stuffed in the fruit.
It's this, I think: http://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Christmas-Dried-Fruit-Selection-Waitrose/64143011
(No ingredients listed. I'll try to get them when I get back there either tonight or tomorrow.) But I guess no one has had it, so it might not even be good.

Speaking of marzipan, Thornton's dark chocolate covered marzipan is hella good.

Lidl's dark chocolate marzipan bars are pretty good (they only sell them around this time of year).

I visited my local Carluccio's today and discovered Tartufi Neri - dark chocolate and hazelnut truffles, and tins of chocolate covered alcohol soaked-cherries. Yum!

the carnation microwave caramel rice pudding is yummy! But serves 2?? I don't think so.

Yeah, I keep eyeing those Tartufi up. They're pretty pricey for a treat for me though, will have to give them to someone who will then be obliged to share! Their gianduja used to be okay too, but they started adding milk powder in for some reason.
