I spotted lots of new and returning goodies instore earlier this week, most of them in the bakery aisle for Easter but a few other treats too. As always I couldn't resist taking a few photos to share with you all. It definitely seems like the theme for Easter this year is Lemon Flavour with a bit of Orange - you'll see what I mean below!
McVitie's Limited Easter Edition St. Clements Mini Rolls - individually wrapped mini roll cakes with an orange and lemon flavoured cream.
Mr Kipling Lemon Whirls - buttercream and lemon flavoured filling. Mr Kipling is especially obsessed with lemon this year...
Mr Kipling Lemon Bakewells - made with a lemon curd filling. These look delicious and I'll definitely be picking them up nearer to Easter.
Mr Kipling Lemon Fancies - see what I mean about the lemon theme? Not sure where the lemon flavour is hiding in these as they are simply described as golden sponge cakes with a soft fondant icing. I suspect the fondant icing is lemon flavoured.
Mr Kipling St Clements Slices - at last some lemon with a (very slight) twist! These are light lemon sponges with an orange flavoured icing.
Cadbury Lemon Bars - Cadbury have their usual range of chocolate Easter cakes but I also spotted these Lemon Cake Bars amongst them. The packaging isn't Easter inspired at all but the lemon theme fits in well with all the other Easter cakes this year!
Jaffa Cakes Limited Edition Lemon Cake Bars - more lemon! Although these are covered in dark chocolate which makes them slightly different from the rest.
Tesco Happy Easter Lemon & White Chocolate Cookies - fitting in with the lemon theme nicely are these little cookies. I like the idea of a lemon and white chocolate combination so I'll probably give these a try.
The Fabulous Bakin' Boys Easter Mini Delights - There are two varieties, Double Choccy and Cherry Bakewell for these mini muffins.
Maina La Gran Nocciolata - now this is more my kind of thing. I love panettone at Christmas so I'm pleased to see Tesco stocking some Italian treats for Easter. This Maina La Gran Nocciolata is made with hazelnuts and orange pieces and features a crunchy almond and hazelnut glaze. I need to try this one!
And a few non-Easter related products.
The Collective Dairy Yogurt Mousse - I spotted two flavours of this new yogurt mousse, Mango and Vanilla, but apparently there is also a Banana version. Guess which one I want to try?
Maynard Discovery Patch: Myths & Monsters and Animals - these sweets are brilliant! Get your kids to eat candy and learn about mythical monsters and Greek legends at the same time - genius. But I know my eldest son will love these next ones more...
Maynard Discovery Patch Body Bits- BODY PARTS as sweets! Seriously awesome, and I'm sure these will be a hit with kids. Review coming soon - I want to know just how gruesome those body bits are.
Wispa Gold - I reviewed the Wispa Gold sachets a few days ago but it's good to know it also comes in this larger tub format. Perfect for adding that extra spoon (or two) of hot chocolate powder into every cup...
Carte Noire Espresso Collection - Nespresso machine compatible capsules. Some of you may know that I'm a Nespresso addict so I had to buy these straight away, I'll be reviewing them soon. I spotted three varieties in my local Waitrose.
I hope you enjoyed these little glimpse into some new products instore. All products were spotted in Tesco, unless otherwise stated. I'll be updating this post a few more times with any new Easter products, and as always do let me know if you spot anything new by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
