Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Biscuits

Brand: Nairn’s Cost: 99p Found at: Lidl   These are absolutely lovely! They are crunchy and grainy and hardy, but the dark chocolate makes them more like a chocolate chip cookie than multigrain crackers. I feel like the fanciest horse in the stable and I love it.   The only downside is that I recently... Continue Reading →

Digestive Thins Dark Chocolate

Brand: McVittie’s Cost: 99p Found at: Lidl   There are days when I need love. There are days when I need fulfillment. And then there are days when I need to eat a box of chocolate digestives in bed. Let’s just call it “self-care” and say no more about it.   Clearly, these thin chocolate... Continue Reading →

White Chocolate Coconut & Corn Flakes

Brand: Fin Carré Cost: 45p Found at: Lidl   The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, I am still in lockdown, and I am feeling tropical. I’ve cranked my heater up to 5, donned a tank-top and shorts, and am blasting every Israel Kamakawiwoʻole song that iTunes has to offer. I even hurried over... Continue Reading →

Choc Orange Bar

Brand: Sainsbury’s Cost: 35p Found at: Sainsbury’s   The packaging on this chocolate bar is highly suspect: “an alternative to milk chocolate.” There’s a lot of wiggle room in the word “alternative” when it comes to food - one might even say too much. It is also concerning that the bar itself is not described... Continue Reading →

White Strawberry

Brand: Bokkusu Found at: Bokkusu Cost: $3   I don’t know how they did it. I don’t know why they did it. But I have never loved anything so much in my life. This is a freeze-dried strawberry that has somehow been infused with white chocolate and it is outrageously good. It looks exactly like... Continue Reading →

Super Smoothie Cacao & Cherry

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco I'm low-key shook. Maybe it's because I'm a grumpy old curmudgeon who is suspicious of everything, but I was certain that this would disappoint. Anything healthy that even implies chocolate and I am out. It's either not healthy or not chocolate and either way, I'm not buying it.... Continue Reading →

Giant Caplico – Strawberry

Brand: Glico Found at: Bokkusu   I don’t pretend to understand this giant, unmeltable ice-cream cone. It’s one of those things that asks more questions than it answers. Who at Glico was eating an ice cream cone and thought to themselves: “If only it were room temperature.”? What CEO or mid-level manager greenlit the idea... Continue Reading →

Enchanted Eggs

Brand: Galaxy Cost: £1 Found at: Iceland   It took me a long time to realize that I was extra. Looking back, it was a missed opportunity. I sent my first twenty years of existence living simply: wearing modest, plain, practical clothes. Eating modest, plain, practical food. Driving a modest, plain, practical car and spouting...
