New Instore: Five Pack Cadbury Creme Eggs & More

Despicable Me Minions Mini Eggs: The ever-popular Minions are back this year with their own movie so I suspect we'll see lots more Minions branded products in the next few months. These milk chocolate Mini Eggs look pretty much like any other mini eggs except they're all yellow. They'd probably be good for Easter themed baking projects. £1.00p at Poundland.

Whole Earth Peanut Butter with seeds: Two new varieties of Whole Earth Peanut Butter spread; Peanut Butter With Sunflower Seeds, and Peanut Butter With Sunflower, Pumpkin & Flax Seeds. £2.50p at Tesco.

Tesco White Chocolate Spread: A few months ago, Tesco held a competition to decide the next biscuit inspired chocolate spread, and they recently announced that the winner is the Millionaire's Shortbread Spread, which should be available soon. Meanwhile, I spotted a White Chocolate Spread which I don't think I've seen in my local store previously. £1.50p at Tesco. 

Udi's Toaster Pastries: I spotted these slightly healthier version of Pop Tarts in the "Free From" section of my local Tesco. They were only £1.00 for a box of 5 so I picked up both flavours to try, Apple Cinnamon and Strawberry - review coming soon! £1.00 at Tesco.

Nakd Bakewell Tart: I know this flavour came out before Christmas but I've had the hardest time trying to find it. The Nakd Bakewell Tart bars are finally available in my local Tesco and even better the whole Nakd bar range is on offer for £0.50p each at the moment. I stocked up on a few more of the Nakd Christmas Pud bars!

Katjes Brad The Bunny: Vegetarian bunny shaped sweets from German confectioners Katjes. I reviewed the Katjes Better Bunny previously and these look very similar. £1.29 at Tesco.

Cadbury Creme Eggs Five Pack: If you're on Twitter, you may have noticed the outcry that occurred when Cadbury confirmed that they have changed the recipe for Creme Eggs, from using Dairy Milk chocolate (around 20% cocoa solids), to using a "standard cocoa mix" (supposedly around 14% cocoa solids). To add even more insult, the traditional Cadbury Creme Egg multipacks will now only contain 5 eggs instead of 6. Bad decision Cadbury, very bad. £2.00p at Tesco.

Thomas & Friends Raspberry Jelly: I couldn't get a decent picture of this but it's a really cute jelly for any Thomas the Tank engine fan. The jelly itself is actually a blue colour and shaped as Thomas himself. The little plastic pot that it comes in can also be reused as a jelly mould - brilliant! I bought one each for my kids even though they are far too old for Thomas the Tank engine. £0.50p each at Tesco.

Ehrmann Crackle Pots Heart Shape: I also though these heart shaped yogurt pots were really cute. They have a large pot of yogurt in the middle with two sections making a heart shape, one with strawberry purée and the other with popping candy. Such a fun idea. £0.89p each at Tesco.

Collective Dairy Limited Edition Coffee Yogurt: The Collective Dairy have released some interesting seasonal flavours, from Pumpkin Spice to Xmas Pudding. Their new Coffee flavoured yogurt for January looks quite intense. If you've tried this one then let me know what you thought in the comments below. £2.40p at Sainsbury's.

A big thank you to Richard W. who sent me some brilliant new product finds via Twitter. These were all spotted at Sainsbury's. Thanks Richard!

Müller Rice Blueberry & Salted Caramel: I can't remember the last time I tried a Müller Rice pot but I'm going to have to track down the Salted Caramel one. £0.70p each at Sainsbury's.

Aero Bubbly Mousse Limited Edition Hazelnut & Choc: I'm hoping that this will taste like a bubbly and light Nutella mousse! Watch this space as I'll definitely be reviewing this one. £1.25p at Sainsbury's.

Red Nose Day - Nose In A Bag: It's Red Nose Day on 13 March this year and this year the Red Noses are these Nose In A Bag characters. I'm sure my kids will want to collect them all! 

Thanks again to Richard. W. for the last photos! Don't forget if you spot any new products instore then I'd love to hear you. Email me at grocerygems@gmail.com


  1. The Katjes sweets should be exactly the same as the ones you had before, this time it's the German packaging though (except the name Brad The Bunny). I don't understand why they used a different bag before.

    1. Thanks for the info Steffi, I thought they looked very similar!

  2. Katjes bunny! I have this and this is so so yummy :)
    This seeds butter looks so good! In Poland haven't got this company :(

    1. That's a shame! Whole Earth spreads are great because they don't have added sugar etc.

  3. The Aero mousse pots are currently on offer at 50p for a pack of 4 in Asda Watford - not sure if that price is store specific or countrywide. I wasn't impressed with the hazelnut ones to be honest, I still think the mint are best

    1. Thanks for the info Foshie! That's a lot cheaper than Sainsbury's.

  4. Ohh I will keep an eye out for Udi's Toaster Pastries the next time I'm in Tesco, as I miss my treat of pop tarts :( I finally got a confirmed diagnosis of coeliac disease and dairy intolerance in November after years of illness . Love the Bakewell tart nakd bar (I stocked up on those:)but wasn't a fan of the Christmas pudding one.

    1. Hi frogg, apologies for such a late reply.

      I'm sorry to hear about your illness, and I hope the diagnosis means it's now under control. It's great that there are more gluten free and dairy free alternatives these days, but even I was surprised to see Pop Tarts in the Free From section!

      I hope you find the Ud's Toaster Pastries soon. They're not as sweet as regular Pop Tarts but I still really enjoyed them. Let me know how you get on with them :)
