Food and Sweets: Millions Vs. Nanobytes

Standard

DSC07767 DSC07770Two weeks ago I compared Warheads to Toxic Waste while recommending both. I am again doing a similar thing but comparing Millions and their assumed successor Nanobytes.

Both sweets are exactly the same and at the moment are both equally rare to find, at least for me. I could only find Millions in Poundland when I was looking recently and they weren’t even in my local Co-op store and Nanobytes, well honestly, I’ve never seen in a shop as I have only received them as free gifts in two different issues of Shout Magazine.

They’re both ‘tiny tasty chewy sweets’ made with ‘real fruit juice’ with ‘no artificial colours’ and are both suitable for vegetarians like myself.

They’re just delicious chewy sweets and I recommend both.

P.S. I realise this was a kind of random and short post, I just wanted to explain that there is another pair of sweets that are basically the same and how much I like both.

Food: Mini Beanies

Standard

 Mini Beanies PacketToday’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, Mini Beanieslayer 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.

Food: Warheads (Vs. Toxic Waste)

Standard

 packetSo today… I’m recommending/reviewing the American sour candy Warheads.

WarheadsFrom watching people on YouTube I became familiar with hearing about the sour sweet Warheads. I always wondered what they were like and how sour they were. I managed to find them in a small sweet shop in Gainsborough’s Marshalls Yard. They cost £1.99 which isn’t bad, especially considering that they are American and are pretty rare in our country. Anyway… I couldSweet save your money by telling you that they are exactly like our English sour sweet, Toxic Waste. I’m not complaining, I like that Warheads are basically the same, I like them, but in future I’ll buy Toxic Waste for £1 instead. They have the exact same flavours, the same look and shape, the same packaging. The only difference I could find is that Warheads are in a larger ordinary packet and Toxic Waste are in a plastic container resembling that of cartoon Toxic Waste barrel.

So for Americans, I do recommend Warheads if you want a good, strong, sour sweet and for those of you who are English, I recommend Toxic Waste if you also want a good, strong, sour sweet.

P.S. Sour sweets are my favourites.

Food: Marvellous Mix Ups with Maynards

Standard

DSC07665Today, I’m going to do something a tiny bit different… Last week I recommended Cadbury’s Marvellous Mix Ups With Oreo and in that I said that I hadn’t tried the With Maynards version. So this week, with both packets still on special offer I’ve decided to try the Maynards version and write up my reaction here.

Without opening the packet, my initial reaction to the involvement of sweets is a negative one as I don’t like the combination of sweets and chocolate. This was proved when I tried Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations with the Jelly pieces inside, I thought that was awful. Fortunately, the sweets in this case are not masked within the chocolate and I don’t have to eat them with the chocolate.

What’s inside?

  1. Cadbury’s caramel nibbles
  2. Maynard’s Jellies (Several Varieties)
  3. Cadbury’s Fudge Dream

DSC07668I’ve now opened the packet… It smells nice and the sweets/chocolates within are a lot bigger than I expected. I’ve started with trying the sweets, they’re quite nice. Onto the caramel nibbles, delicious! I’ve always love these. Time for the Fudge… normally, I’m not great with Fudge; I like some but not most. That’s delicious too!

I’m genuinely surprised at how good these are! Even the combination of the sweets and the chocolate is good, something I was definitely not expecting. I honestly recommend these…  What I thought would only be a reaction blog turned out to be another recommendation… awesome.

Enjoy!

Food: Marvellous Mix Ups with Oreo

Standard

Packet Today’s food recommendation is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Mix-Ups, more specifically the ‘with Oreo’ version as I haven’t yet tried the ‘with Maynards’ version.

I first tried these when they first came out as they were on offer. I do tend to get bags like this only when they are on offer because the full price always seems a bit steep for the amount (111g) of chocolate you get. Anyway, I absolutely love them.

I think their concept is really interesting and new. If I got a pound for every time someone wished that there was a pack of different chocolates mixed into one so that they didn’t have to pay for four separate bags, for example, I would be the richest person on Earth ten times over. Not only is it a mixture of four different products in one packet it is also a packet of brilliant chocolates.

So what’s inside?

  1. Cadbury Dairy Milk Giant Buttons
  2. Cadbury Pebbles
  3. Cadbury White Buttons
  4. Mini Oreos.

If you like chocolate, who doesn’t, and you like these products and won’t die because you’re allergic or something, I urge you to try this product if you haven’t yet.

Food: Maltesers Teasers

Standard

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.Teasers

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.Chocolate

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!
