BIGGEST SURPRISE OF 2009
This weeks second round of awards are for the products that I thought were the best at surpassing all expectations.
Thorntons managed to serve up a varying range of products in terms of quality this year but one of the surprisingly good ones was this Tonka Bean flavoured milk chocolates. I found that this chocolate was well worthy of it's silver award from the Academy of Chocolate and I loved the creamy smooth taste that was noted with hints of honey and vanilla. See the review ...

This was a product I reviewed as part of the 2009 Easter offering from Dean-German-Grocery and it really surpassed all expectations. This product offered something completely different to the usual Cadbury Creme Egg, etc and combined an outer shell of Milka milk chocolate with a thick milk creme centre. At first I thought it looked a little gimmicky but that before I had both the fun and delicious experience of eating one. I really hope they are around next Easter! See the review ... HERE.
This without doubt was the surprise of the year for me and it was sent to me by my friends at Candy Pirate last May. As far as I was aware Cinnabon were most known for their Cinnamon roll pastries in America, and it was unbeknown to me that they made such a delicious confectionery product. Coated in white chocolate this product had everything from a warming cinnamon spice caramel, pecan nuts and small toffee piece ... it was quite frankly delicious! Unfortunately CandyPirate haven't had stock in for quite sometime but I hope in the not too distant future I can get hold of one these again! Congratulations Cinnabon! See the review ... HERE
