New Instore: Halloween Yogurt & Bonfire Cakes

A few new products spotted instore.

The Collective Dairy Limited Edition Spiced Pumpkin: Thanks to the commentator on a previous post who alerted my attention to this yogurt. I spotted the spookily decorated pot instore a few days ago in Sainsbury's. Given how much I've complained about the lack of pumpkin spice products, it's ridiculous that I haven't give this a try yet. In the meantime check out the verdict from someone who knows exactly what real pumpkin spice should taste like - read Creamy Steaks review HERE. £2.40 at Sainsbury's.

Ritter Sport Rum Raisins Hazelnuts: I know this is not a new flavour for Ritter Sport, but it's the first time I've seen this flavour in a UK supermarket. It's currently on offer for a bargainous £1.00 at Sainsbury's.

Geo Watkins Mushroom Ketchup: Looking like a wonderous herbal potion that belongs in a travelling 'doctors' medicine cabinet is this Mushroom Ketchup by Geo Watkins. If you've given this one a try, first of all, BRAVO, and secondly please leave a comment to let me know what the heck it's all about! £1.79 at Sainbury's.

Greggs Hot Dog: Yeah so THIS happened. Greggs are now selling New York style hot dogs in their bakeries from 11am onwards. They're £2.50 and absolutely massive (for reference they're at least double the size of Ikea hot dogs). 

Cadbury Dairy Milk Winter Wonderland: The festive edition from last year is back, see my original review HERE. The packaging is slightly different (last year's was much nicer in my opinion) but I'm assuming it's exactly the same bar inside. £1.00 at Asda. 

Lyle's Golden Syrup Bonfire Toffee Cake: Also back are these Bonfire Bakes from Lyle's Golden Syrup. There are two flavours to choose from Bonfire Toffee and Sticky Toffee Apple. It's nice to have a few products designed with Bonfire Night in mind, and I like the new firework inspired packaging. £1.00 each at Sainsbury's. 

Lyle's Golden Syrup Sticky Toffee Apple Cake: I've never tried either of these cakes before but I'd like to give them a go this year. If you've had them before then please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below! 

Big thanks to Lucy W. for the last two photos! If you spot any new products instore then I'd love to hear from you - email me: grocerygems@gmail.com.

I was sent a voucher to try the new Greggs Hot Dog. 


  1. This Cadbury bar looks so sweet :)

  2. Mushroom ketchup makes a good vegetarian Worcestershire sauce substitute - it doesn't taste the same, but does a similar job of adding depth of flavour: I couldn't imagine gravy without it!

  3. Pumpkin yogurt? Wow, it's amazing! :) I'd really want to try something like that.

  4. Oh, thank you for the shout out! :D I'd like to try one of those Bonfire Night cakes, do you think you can heat them up in the microwave or something? With custard or cream I think they would be lovely...and I'm always looking for an excuse to eat custard & cream, haha.

  5. One of the girls at my work brought the Bonfire Toffee cake into work last year, and I have to say, it is one of THE nicest cakes I've ever tasted made by Lyle's! It has a hint of a treacle flavour and the 'bonfire' toffee is burnt, so its quite strong... but it's so good. I highly recommend it. Chelsea has a great idea for warming it, I think it'd be brilliant with vanilla ice cream :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
