Food: Maryland Cookie Bites

On occasion Maryland chocolate chip cookies are a nice treat in the event of a crisis, they aren’t the best in the world however they are consistently tasty enough and can sit at the back of a cupboard for ages waiting for a suitable emergency

As such Maryland cookie bites sounded a bit fun, even if they were chocolate chip and caramel flavour

Weirdly they weren’t that tasty, they were just sort of dry and vaguely chocolate flavoured

They would not resolve anything in the event of an emergency

Food: Fire & Smoke Sweet Heat Bacon

Bacon cause cancer, however it’s tasty so in moderation it’s a risk I will take

However if every slice is a potential risk then it needs to be really nice, the Fire & Smoke range of cooked meats are pretty nice so their bacon promised to be worth the risk.

The Hellish Hot Sweet Heat flavoured product has a bit of a chilli taste, however it wasn’t very hot – certainly not hellishly so

Overall the taste was fine, however it’s not special enough to bother with again.

Food: Ben & Jerry’s Home Sweet Honeycomb

The snow is nearly all gone and I rather fancied ice cream, happily there was an offer on a flavour of Ben & Jerry’s that I hadn’t tried before – Home Sweet Honeycomb

It’s sweet cream ice-cream with chocolate covered chunks of honeycomb and honey caramel swirls, it’s also very tasty

It’s not going to replace Phish Food as my all-time favourite, however it’s not far off

Food: Pukka Tea Relax

It’s below zero during the day at the moment, which is just grim. Plus I’m still not feeling 100%, so I decided to buy some funky tea

Pukka Teas have a flavour called ‘Relax’ which sounds a nice concept. Apparently it contains chamomile tea, fennel seed and marshmallow root, I’ve no idea if these things are meant to relaxing – frankly a bar of dark chocolate sounds more relaxing

And it tastes like I licked a spoon after using it for five spice

Now to think of a use for 19 more not-so-relaxing tea bags…

Food: Candy Kitten Eton Mess Swets

Candy Kitten are a gourmet sweets brand, which essentially means at full price it is £2.49 for a mere 150gr of sweets

The flavour isn’t a very accurate description of the taste; Elton Mess is strawberries, meringue and cream mixed together, these sweets taste vaguely of strawberry-related flavours and that’s about it

They also contain beef gelatine. I’m not vegetarian anymore however using gelatine in sweets always feels like an attempt to sneakily increase profit margins

Talking of sneaky, the beef gelatine is marked as being halal, however as the sweets also contain cochineal they can’t be halal – which makes me wonder who these overpriced, very chewy and under-flavoured sweets are aimed at… and then my darling spouse says he quite likes them at the very reduced price that I paid for them!

Food: Gu Fusions

When anxiety strikes I tend to try to find fun food, sometimes this means buying random things that sound fun and then finding they really are not fun

Gu Fusions fall firmly in this category; strawberry mousse with fresh strawberry compote should taste nicer and preferably not flipping contain beef gelatine

I should have stuck with eating chocolate instead

Food: Fake peanut butter cups

I like Reeses peanut butter cups, despite having never tried peanut butter in any other context and having no real inclination to do so; however as Reeses are not exactly healthy or cheap they are a rare treat

Wandering in the foreign food section of my local supermarket I found the Chocolate Buddy knockoff version – they are slightly cheaper than Reeses and I figured they couldn’t be awful

I was wrong, they are nasty in both taste and texture, like wash it out with mouthwash nasty

Now I really don’t want to try peanut butter
