Today’s food recommendation is Mini Beanies. These are adorable little biscuits that look a little like pizzas or even mini chocolate pizzas. I found these while shopping in the popular supermarket Asda. They’re super delicious and are made up of about four layers, from the bottom up: Layer 1 is the biscuit base, layer 2 is the milk flavoured creamy filling, layer 3 is milk chocolate and the final layer is the crunchy ‘choccie’ beans. The only downside to these biscuits is that they are very very unhealthy (I’ll let you see the ratings when you buy them) but for a lovely indulgent snack, which we all need from time to time, I totally recommend them.
This week, during our weekly shop at popular supermarket Aldi, I found a wonderful and, to an unhealthy foodie like myself, perfect selection pack. Stupidly, I threw away the packaging so I don’t know what it is called but either way, the names of the snacks within are listed here and if you see a bag with these in, you’ll know it’s the one.
So what’s within?
- Burton’s Jammie Dodgers (minis) – I’ve been craving these for so long, so they would’ve been a brilliant treat to find on their own let alone in this incredible pack. If you haven’t ever eaten these, they’re basically raspberry jam sandwiched by two shortcake biscuits.
- Cadbury’s Animals – These wonderful ‘Animal shaped mini biscuits half covered with milk chocolate’ were a massive part of my childhood and still a snack my mother and I love today.
- Cadbury’s (mini) Fingers – ‘Crisp mini biscuits covered with milk chocolate’ and downright delicious, I’m hungry just thinking about them.
- Burton’s (mini) Maryland Choc Chip Cookies – For many people in the UK, these ‘Mini Cookies Containing Chocolate Chips’, are the quintessential cookies.
If any of these made you hungry, I apologise, but now you have an excuse to fill your tummy with some delightful treats.
Today’s recommendation, Maltesers Teasers, is something that I know a lot of you have already seen and eaten but as the adverts have been re-circulating and the product has been pushed again I thought the timing was apt to mention it.
I recently got a craving for this chocolate after seeing the advert so many times one night so as I was shopping today, I saw it on offer and knew I needed to pick it up. I’m glad I did because upon having a piece I was reminded why this chocolate is my favourite. It has such a wonderful creamy texture with delicious Malteaser biscuit balls that combined give such an amazing taste.
The reason I love this chocolate so much comes from my love of biscuit pieces in chocolate. Sounds weird, but allow me to explain. Whenever we get a selection box of Celebrations, usually around Christmas time, the one chocolate I want to completely steal is the Maltesers Teasers, which have been in production a long time before the bigger bars were made. I also loved the Malteaster Bunnies which are very similar. But before the Malteser products, I used to love the Cadbury’s Biscuits that were made up of little balls of shortbread biscuit floating in Cadbury’s milk chocolate. They were so delicious, but sadly, Cadbury stopped producing them. Either way, they were what triggered my love of biscuit-ed chocolate bars, so if you’re like me and love these types of chocolate and haven’t yet tried Teasers, you really need to get on with it because it will change your life!
