I have resisted the big bars of the Dairy Milk peanut caramel crisp SO many times this year due being on strict diets for various powerlifting competitions. After seeing Amy had found a smaller bar, I was desperate to find it to see if it lived up to the Milka peanut caramel bars since it is almost a direct copy!
As soon as I unwrapped the bar, I was greeted by a delicious nutty smell and I made my boyfriend (who is allergic to nuts) smell it (sorry Con). The bar is filled with a combination of caramel, rice crisp pieces, peanuts and a peanut filling. The different textures of the crunchy peanuts, rice crisps and smooth caramel really work together to create a delicious bar. I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of savoury peanuts and sweet caramel!
Overall, this bar is probably one of the best peanut based chocolate bars I’ve tried and I would definitely buy it again in future. I would have liked the filling to contain more actual crunchy peanuts but that is the only fault I can find. This bar was found in Sainsbury’s.
Third burger review in a row on my blog but it’s National Burger Day so it would be rude not too, surely? A few weekends back, Connor and I went to a milkshake and burger festival which was pretty dismal with the exception of Nanny Bill’s.
I’d never heard of Nanny Bill’s previously but they are a street food vendor who travel around and are currently at the pop up – the Last Days of Shoreditch. While I was disappointed that they weren’t serving their mac ‘n’ cheese bites (Instagram research), I ordered anyway. We ordered the bacon cheeseburger sliders and a side of rosemary salted fries. I don’t usually like burger sauce, lettuce or gherkins in my burger but the sliders came with it all and I wasn’t going to deconstruct it in the middle of the festival! The burger was so juicy and succulent and the brioche bun was a perfect match for the patty. If I was being picky then I’d say that it was slightly too juicy as it did leak down my hand but not to extent of my horrible Burger & Lobster experience. I would love to try this slider in it’s full burger size glory. I cannot fault the rosemary salted fries. I love crispy fries and they were all perfectly crisp. I love the infusion of the rosemary!
Sliders – 9/10
Fries – 10/10
The Bleecker Street burger is frequently dubbed as the best burger in London and it’s been on my burger list (yes I have a list) for a while now. Last night I went to Hawker House Street Feast and to my luck, Bleecker have just been released as the new vendor there.
I was slightly worried that I’d find the Bleecker burger too greasy after having an awful burger experience at Burger & Lobster where I had tidal waves of grease running down my arms… I decided to go for the Bacon Blue burger as the famous Bleecker Black was not on the menu. I watched my fresh patty meet the grill and within a few minutes of assembling it was on a paper plate in front of me. As soon as I saw my single patty, I wished that I’d gone for the double patty, nevertheless I tucked into my burger. I think I had the burger hyped up a lot in my head, don’t get me wrong, it was delicious but I think the double patty would have made a massive difference. The combination of the blue cheese, the streaky bacon and the succulent beef patty was a party of flavours in my mouth but I think they could have been more liberal with the blue cheese! The burger bun was nice and soft but too big for a single patty. I regret not going for the double patty option as the beef was of excellent quality. I plan to go to Spitalfields or to the Bleecker restaurant in Victoria after my rookie error…
