ChokaBlok Excrème Brûlée & Very Berry Eton Mess

ChokaBlok, exclusive to Tesco, is a range well known for it's decadent chocolate slabs and full on flavour combinations. I'm pleased to see that their chocolate creations are now available in smaller 80g bars for only £1.40 each. Hannah from The Review Addict, who is quite the ChokaBlok connoisseur, very kindly sent me two of these bars in the newest flavours to try - Excrème Brûlée & Very Berry Eton Mess.

ChokaBlok Excrème Brûlée

The ChokaBlok Excrème Brûlée has a fabulously sparkly look and manages to pack a whole lot of glam into one chocolate bar. It's a dessert inspired chocolate consisting of milk and white chocolate sections, swirled together in the middle, and studded with butterscotch pieces and gold dusted wafer.

Both the milk and white chocolate used here are deliciously creamy and satisfying. The milk chocolate especially acts as the perfect backdrop for the crunchy butterscotch. It gets progressively sweeter and creamier towards the white chocolate end, but still manages to provide a good balance between flavour and sweetness. The whole thing tastes superb and perfectly recreates a delicious crème brûlée experience in chocolate!

ChokaBlok Very Berry Eton Mess

I just adore the look of this ChokaBlok Very Berry Eton Mess - it's so girly! The bar is made up of one side of raspberry flavour pink chocolate, decorated with freeze dried berries, and one side of white chocolate, studded with meringue piece, which both meet in the middle in a pretty swirl.

The pink raspberry chocolate side of the bar is completely divine with a deliciously fruity flavour and added tangy flourish from the freeze dried raspberries and strawberries. The flavours all work so well together and even my hubby, who's not a fan of fruit flavoured chocolate, enjoyed this one immensely. The white chocolate side doesn't quite reach the same outstanding heights, although it's still very good. It's a very tasty and creamy white chocolate but the meringue pieces just make it a tad too crunchy and sweet.

Overall these are fantastic chocolate bars and a great introduction to the ChokaBlok range!

POM Wonderful Cocktails & Competition!

I was excited to be asked to try out the range of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice, and to give one of their delicious summer cocktails recipes a try. Be sure to keep reading until the end of this post for details of a competition for one of my readers to win THREE bottles of POM Wonderful!

Pomegranates are well known as a superfood because of their high antioxidant and vitamin content and POM Wonderful have used this to create a nutritious juice that's full of flavour. On it's own it reminded me a bit of cranberry juice with it's slightly tart edge but sweet finish. The strong fresh flavour means this juice also works wonderfully well when mixed with other drinks - it's especially delicious when mixed with lemonade.

APPLE & GINGER POM (Non- Alcoholic)

50ml POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
50ml ginger ale
Quarter fresh apple
1 nail of ginger
2 lime wedges

Garnish: Apple Fan


  • Shake the ginger, apple and lime in a shaker
  • Add POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice and shake with ice
  • Strain into an ice-filled glass and top with ginger ale
  • Garnish with an apple fan
  • For an alcoholic version this recipe works great with Whiskey.

I was so pleased with my finished Apple & Ginger POM (above photo) - it turned out really well! I used extra lime wedges for the garnish rather than apple but the rest is the same as the recipe. The ginger gives this mocktail an extra zingy and refreshing quality, and makes it the perfect drink for a hot day. It's so simple to make and the resulting drink looks fantastic too!


POM Wonderful have very kindly offered the chance for one of my readers to win THREE bottles of POM Wonderful. The winner will be sent three vouchers for POM Wonderful worth £3 each.

How to enter:

Retweet one of my competition tweets on twitter (HERE) & follow @grocerygems.

Or leave a comment on this blog post in the section below and simply email me your name and address to grocerygems@gmail.com with the subject "POM Wonderful Competition".

The winner will be chosen at random and the competition closes at 5pm on Tuesday 2nd June. 

Good luck everyone!!

Pepperidge Farm Pizza Flavoured Finz! (Tesco)

I've noticed a lot of new products from the Pepperidge Farm range at Tesco. These Finz have previously been available through US import stores and I'm pleased to see them stocked by a mainstream supermarket. The whole range is on special offer at the moment and I couldn't resist picking up these Pizza flavour baked crackers for £1.00.

I don't know why there aren't more Pizza flavoured crisps and snacks already - it's such an easy flavour (it's really just cheese, tomato and herbs) and one that is very appealing to kids. I like the look of the little goldfish shaped snacks with their bright orange colouring. They're completely covered with flavour - Pepperidge Farm did not hold back with the Pizza seasoning!

The good news is that this flavouring is a pretty decent reproduction of a cheese & tomato Pizza. The initial taste comes from the cheddar cheese used - they're very cheesy but in a good way. There's not much in the way of herby flavour but there is plenty of tomato to fill in the gap and also a delicious garlic to finish. The flavour is a cross between a pizza and a garlic bread! Even though these are described as baked crackers, they are not too dry, but definitely not too greasy either. The main negative with these is that there is almost too much seasoning, and they do start to get quite salty very quickly.

Also check out a review of one of the newest flavours from Pepperidge Farm -  the Cheddar Bacon Goldfish Puffs on The Impulsive Buy.

Mint M&M's Review

I love M&M's from the US, they have such brilliant flavours compared to the ones available in the UK. Even on a recent trip to the M&M World store in Leicester Square, London (the largest candy store in the world), I was disappointed to find that there were only the basic three flavours of M&M's available - milk chocolate, peanut and crispy! Thankfully the more exotic American flavours are available from import shops online. I recently placed an order with the fantastic Monster Sweets who kindly sent me these Mint M&M's. I've reviewed these briefly once before in the very early days of my blog, as part of a M&M's Mega Post HERE (apologies for the terrible photos!).

This is mainly an excuse to post better photos, because my thoughts on the flavour are still the same! I love the fact that these Mint M&M's are all various shades of green, it all looks so pretty. The flavour is exactly what you would want from a mint M&M - they're very sweet and minty but with a refreshing kick. The chocolate centre is described as a "dark chocolate" but it doesn't have the intense flavour of a dark chocolate. If you're a fan of mint chocolate then you need to try these!

Monster Sweets kindly sent me this product for an honest review but all views expressed are my own.

J&D's Malt Salt Review - No more soggy chips!

My local Tesco now has an American section in the World Foods aisle - finally! Hiding amongst the usual imports from the US of brightly coloured cereals, Pop Tarts and chocolate bars, were these small jars of J&D's Malt Salt. It's described as a "malt vinegar flavour sea salt" which will give chips all the tang and kick of malt vinegar without the soggy texture - "let's keep it crispy people". Sold!

Straight away there is a strong malt vinegar scent coming from the bottle - even before opening. Once I had taken a closer look I was surprised by the texture of the Malt Salt. It's a very fine powder rather than the table salt texture I was expecting. In the interests of this review I tried a little dab of the Malt Salt without any food just to test the saltiness. It tasted great, very salty and with a real vinegar kick to it. However, once on the actual chips it seemed to lose some of it's intensity. It gave the chips quite a light vinegar flavour and not much salt at all. I still think it's a fantastic product, but it didn't flavour the chips as much as good old salt and vinegar does!

The J&D's Malt Salt is made with all natural ingredients, including malt vinegar powder. Apparently it's great for making homemade salt and vinegar popcorn.

Around the World: China - Wanttone Breakfast Biscuits

It's quite strange to me that I have never reviewed a product from China before. I certainly eat a lot of Chinese food but most of the products I buy seem to be made in the UK. On a recent visit to Chinatown in London I spotted these Breakfast Biscuits by cake and biscuits makers Wanttone. I've reviewed quite a few brands of breakfast biscuit so I was interested to see how this Chinese brand would compare.

The biscuits are displayed in a simple plastic tray. There are no individually sealed portions which is slightly disappointing, having separate packs is always more useful for breakfast biscuits.

The biscuits themselves, however, are fine, if a little dull. They're fairly simple wheaty biscuits but they have a decent buttery undertone and subtle vanilla flavour. The texture is very nice too, perfect for enjoying with a hot drink. Although these are not really a replacement for the cereal based breakfast biscuits we get in the UK, they are still very good as basic biscuits for tea.

If anyone can recommend another snack from China to review I would be very grateful!

Grocery Gems Verdict: Wanttone Breakfast Biscuits

RATING: 7 out of 10.
Buy them again?: I would try more from the range.

Around the World: Greece - Halva Cocoa Bar

Thank you once again to Hannah from The Review Addict who has been helping me in my Around the World snacking challenge, first by sending me a chocolate bar from South Africa (the Nestle Tex reviewed HERE) and now providing this Halva Cocoa Bar on behalf of Greece! This bar is made by a Greek company called Hai Foods who seem to specialise in these Halva bars and sesame products in general. Halva is a type of sweet confection, often made with tahini (sesame paste), and is popular across many parts of the world including, the Middle East, Asia and the Balkans.

I think it should get extra points in my Around the World challenge for having a Greek flag on the packaging!

The main ingredient of this Halva Cocoa Bar is the tahini, closely followed by various types of sugar, vegetable oil and cocoa (3%). It's a simply flavoured snack that has a very dry, crumbly, almost powdery texture.

The flavour is predominantly of the sugary tahini combination. It tastes very much like a sesame snap but in a much softer and less chewy form. At first there is a slight bitterness to the flavour from the tahini, but this seems to diminish as the sweetness builds. I couldn't taste much cocoa but I suspect it's inclusion probably helps to tone down the sharper edge of the tahini.

Thanks again to Hannah for sending me this bar!

RATING: 6 out of 10.
Buy them again?: Not for me but might be worth a try if you like tahini or sesame snacks.

Marks & Spencer Neopolitan Cookies Review

I've been wanting to try these Neopolitan Cookies ever since I saw them in M&S a few weeks ago. I love the fun and summery packaging, with a biscuit made to look like an ice cream! I'm sure I don't need to tell anyone that a Neopolitan ice cream consists of three basic flavours, strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. It's a popular one for M&S this year as there is also a new Neopolitan themed dessert in the range too.

The actual cookies look fairly standard. I'm not sure what I expected but they are quite plain, although they do have a lovely sweet strawberry smell. The cookie gets it's Neopolitan flavour from the three main additions - strawberry pieces, white chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips. This is basically the same as the Strawberries & Cream cookies that M&S released last year but with added milk chocolate chips. There's nothing really that special that would make these an ice cream flavoured biscuit. The flavours are all quite good, if a little boring, but the worst part was the texture. These cookies are so rock hard that they are actually difficult to bite into! They were impossible to eat without a hot drink to hand. Definitely one for the tea dunkers!

There is also a new Strawberry & Rhubarb variety available as part of the same range.

Around the World: Romania - ROM Chocolate Bar

This review has been sitting in my draft folder for quite a while now! I first saw the ROM bar on the Choc It Out youtube video 10 Foreign Chocolate Bars, which highlights some very unusual chocolates that can be purchased in the UK. It seemed a very fitting inclusion for my Around the World challenge, especially as the wrapper depicts the colours of the Romanian national flag.

The patriotic appearance of the ROM continues onto the chocolate itself, with the words "Bucuresti" imprinted on the bar for Romania's capital city Bucharest. In fact there is a reason behind all this patriotic imagery beyond mere asthetics. When the ROM was released in 1964 it was the only choice of chocolate bar available under the old communist regime. I'm sure this must be the first chocolate bar I've blogged about that has political roots. Even though times have changed in Romania, it apparently caused quite a stir when the wrapper's iconic Romanian patriotic look was briefly replaced with the American flag instead! 

Onto the bar itself. The outer chocolate is quite dark and is filled with a creamy caramel and rum flavoured filling. It's all very sweet and the alcohol flavour is quite strong, certainly too strong for me. The flavour is not to my liking at all and sadly I couldn't finish the bar. This is simply due to the fact that I don't like alcohol and chocolate combinations in general and not a reflection of the ROM itself. Therefore, I don't feel I can pass judgement on the overall flavour. I can however say that the ROM is probably worth a try just for the history alone!

Purchased: Local Romanian grocery store (thanks to Marcus ChocItOut for pointing me in the right direction!). 
Price: Can't quite remember but they were very cheap, less than £0.50p.

Furula Green Tea Cookies Review

A few weeks ago I reviewed the delicious Pocky Green Tea Chocolate Crush. These were chocolate covered Pocky sticks that were embedded with crushed green tea cookies. Trying these made me eager to find some actual green tea cookies, and luckily enough I soon spotted these biscuits in a local Asian grocery shop.

Inside the box is a fairly basic plastic tray filled with 10 biscuits. The biscuits are a dark golden colour, with an intricate lattice pattern. They're sandwiched with quite a thin layer of green tea filling.

The biscuits themselves have a good crunchy texture and are quite simply flavoured, similar to a Rich Tea biscuit but slightly more buttery and golden. The layer of filling is very sweet and creamy, with no bitterness, but still manages to have a distinctive green tea flavour. Funnily enough they tasted good dunked in a cup of tea, just not a green tea - the average black tea with milk kind!

Pop Tarts Gone Nutty! - Frosted Chocolate Peanut Butter

I bought these new Gone Nutty! Chocolate Peanut Butter Pop Tarts to be part of a foodie parcel I did for my hubby on Father's Day last week. They're quite hard to track down but absolutely worth it for any Pop Tart fan. There are two varieties in this Gone Nutty! range; a frosted version called Chocolate Peanut Butter, and also the slightly healthier (or perhaps that should read slightly less unhealthy) unfrosted Peanut Butter (reviewed here by The Impulsive Buy). Obviously I went for the frosted chocolate version!

I have to quickly mention the packaging for these Pop Tarts because it's clear that Kellogg's have made an extra effort with this range. The outer box is much glossier than usual with added embossing of the pictures and logo. The Pop Tarts are then wrapped in shiny gold packets rather than the usual silver, emphasising the treasure like nature of the contents!

For some reason the actual pastries don't have the same high level of finish as the packaging. The frosting in particular looks like the Trainee Pop Tart Frosters were given their first try at frosting, and no one had the heart to tell them that their efforts were completely dire. Either that or the frosting machine is broken.

Still, it's always the insides that count, and that is certainly the case with these Pop Tarts. Once heated up in the toaster these are truly little parcels of melty gooey peanut butter heaven. The peanut butter is extremely sweet and salty in the way that only America peanut butter can be. The chocolate frosting might as well be pure sugar for all the chocolate flavour it adds, but it still tastes delicious combined with the plainer pastry. The whole product is a complete sugar rush but an extremely enjoyable one. It's what I imagine a heated up Reese's Peanut Butter Cup would taste like - but even more satisfying!

The only negatives are that these are almost impossible to find (basically Ebay is the only option in the UK at the moment), and there are only 6 pastries in the box instead of the usual 8. No prizes for guessing how many days this box of 6 lasted amongst my family of 4. I hope it's not too long before Kellogg's realise how incredibly popular these are and instigate a wider release.

Marks & Spencer Triple Chocolate Brownie Cake

Another new cake from the M&S Great British Summer range. This Triple Chocolate Brownie Layer Cake looks so utterly fabulous I'm going to let the photos do most of the talking :)

The cake is made up of layers of dark chocolate chip brownie and madeira cake, with milk chocolate ganache in the centre and white chocolate buttercream on top. It's all dusted with cocoa powder in a swirly design that looks absolutely gorgeous.

As you would expect from a Marks & Spencer's cake, all the individual elements are superb. The brownie layer is deliciously dark and full of intense chocolate flavour. The madeira cake is super moist and light, providing a lovely contrast with the denser brownie. The milk chocolate ganache and white chocolate buttercream are both very sweet and creamy and finish off the cake wonderfully.

Overall, this is a stunning cake from M&S, in both looks and taste and I highly recommend it as a real treat for chocolate lovers!

New Regina Passion Fruit Chocolate

Regina is Portugal's oldest and most famous chocolate brand. Founded in 1928, it's well know for it's fruit flavoured chocolate range, super cute chocolate umbrellas and more. I remember my grandparents bringing me the Regina Morango (Strawberry) and Regina Ananas (pineapple) flavoured chocolates as a child. It seemed so exotic back then and I credit those early experiences with my interest in unusual flavours and brands now! When I heard that there was a new Maracujá (Passion Fruit) variety I knew I had to track it down, and luckily it didn't prove too difficult.

This Maracujá chocolate bar has the same distinctive appearance as the rest of the Regina fruit flavoured chocolates -  they have a very unique concave look! It looks a bit like someone forgot to put the filling in, but honestly they're meant to look like that!

I have to admit that I haven't been able to pass on my love of Regina chocolate to anyone else, my husband and kids are not that keen on it. The chocolate has it's own particular taste and slightly waxy texture which is probably due to the need to combat the hot climate in Portugal. It's a very sweet chocolate too - definitely one to enjoy with a strong cup of espresso. I enjoyed the passion fruit flavour in this bar, it gives the milk chocolate a lovely tropical flavour.

Overall, I loved this new bar from Regina, it's a fantastic addition to their fruit inspired range. I couldn't resist buying the classic Orange flavour too! :)

Oloves Olives Review

I was delighted to be asked to review the Oloves range of healthy snacks. I absolutely love olives, so the idea of these ready to eat olives in handy on-the-go pouches is really appealing to me. Oloves are 100% natural, deli-style olives, in convenient servings with only 50 calories each. They're made for easy snacking and I love the fact that there are no annoying pits or messy liquid in any of the 30g pouches. I received three varieties to try; Hot Chilli Mama, Lemony Lover, and Tasty Mediterranean.

Oloves Tasty Mediterranean Olives
The olives themselves were all deliciously plump and tender. The three different flavours were actually all quite similar in taste -  the green olives themselves are very much the stars of the show. Each bag contained approximately twelve olives.

Hot Chilli Mama - Pitted green olives with habanero chillies. Don't expect an intense chilli kick here. These contain a very mild level of heat which compliments the green olives very well.

Lemony Lover - Pitted green olives with lemon & garlic. The lemony flavour adds a lovely tang to the olives, whilst the garlic flavour is very subtle.

Tasty Mediterranean - Pitted green olives with basil & garlic. These were my favourite of the three as they had the most flavour. The hints of basil and garlic create a simple, delicious, and classic, flavour combination.

I was really impressed with the Oloves range. They're a fantastic savoury snack that's much healthier than the usual salty alternatives. The fresh flavours are delicious and moreish, and they're so convenient to keep handy for a quick snack.

Oloves are available at Holland & Barratt, will be stocked at Shell Garages (in the chiller cabinet) and soon to be in all NUS student union shops and bars. They're also available on many airlines as the in-flight snack of choice!

MilkyBar Minis Ice Cream Lollies

Nestle has been busy miniaturising some of it's iconic ice lolly brands, such as the Nobbly Bobbly (review here) and Fabs. They've also made one of their most popular chocolate bars, the MilkyBar, into an ice lolly - and as a mini version too. I know MilkyBar chocolates are clearly aimed at kids but I can't resist the occasional bar myself!

The ice creams are very cute - and really very small. They're described as "delicious MilkyBar ice cream dipped in creamy white MilkyBar chocolate".

The white chocolate coating is classic Milkybar - all sweetness and creaminess. The inner ice cream was much nicer than I was expecting - with a lovely texture that is not too "icy" as is often the case with kids ice cream based lollies. It's not just a plain vanilla either, it's has a caramel undertone to the creamy flavour. Undoubtedly most kids who love white chocolate will love these MilkyBar ice lollies, but I'm also sure that many adults looking for a less calorific treat will love them too.

Around The World Latvia - Biscuits & Chocolate!

I bought two products recently from a local grocery store that both turned out to be from Latvia - and both utterly fab too! Firstly these Banana Selga biscuits by Laima, a company that has been making chocolate and biscuits since 1870. These came in absolutely loads of different flavours, and somewhat predictably I went for the banana! I recommend looking out for this extensive range - some of the other biscuit flavours I spotted were; Strawberry, Maple Syrup, Irish Cream, and Apple.

The biscuits have a lovely golden look and design but what really caught my attention was the sweet banana smell! It was like someone had just poured a glass of banana milkshake. I'll admit that when it comes to products like this I don't want a subtle natural flavour, I want a stronger banana flavour, and these biscuits certainly deliver that! The biscuits themselves are quite buttery, with a good crunch. The strong banana flavour means I wouldn't want to eat these biscuits with a cup of tea - BUT they are fabulous crumbled over some vanilla ice cream!

Next up is the Manija, also from Latvia, but made by Kraft Foods. Like the previous biscuits this came in an impressive array of flavours - Peanut, Hazelnut, Caramel and more. I decided to go for the coconut - even though I was slightly worried that it might be like a Bounty (which I don't like at all).

Considering I had no idea what it would be like inside I was very pleasantly surprised. The fluffy white layer is in fact a soft vanilla nougat. It has just the right amount of coconut in it, enough for a decent coconut flavour, but not enough to ruin the soft texture. The chocolate is quite thin and a little bland but it serves it's purpose here well enough providing a sweet cocoa finish. Overall I was very impressed by this bar, there's nothing like it in the UK and it's fantastic for coconut and nougat fans! I'd love to try the other flavours in the range too.
