Delicious Delicacies Treat Box (Glasgow, East End) : Review

GIFTED


The girls at Delicious Delicacies gifted me with one of their treat boxes recently.⠀

They have recently launched (June 24th 2020) and asked me to check out their Treat Box.⠀

They do fresh home-made baking, and all profits go to @parkheadnazarene and @the.charter which is a really nice thing to do.⠀

I have now finished the box, and can honestly say wow.⠀

About

The Treat Box

Oreo Cupcakes (x2)

Visually they looked really good, and the flavour was really good. The cupcake was nice, and had a really good flavour and was my favourite from the whole box.⠀

Malteser Slab

I bit into this and mmm the base, the topping and the Maltese’s a perfect bite.⠀

Another one that was mega moreish.

Empire Biscuit & the Iced Biscuit

Both were really nice, and had a good favour to them. I would have liked just a little more jam, but I have a sweet tooth and that’s my personal preference.⠀

Tablet

Tablet can be hit or miss, either just so so or way too sugary. For me, this was really good, smooth and mega moreish. ⠀

Meringue

This was MASSIVE! but light and soft and the cream inside again a perfect bite. ⠀

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the treat box.

Firstly a big thanks to Delicious Delicacies,

Follow them on Instagram, send them a wee message and treat yourself to a Treat box :)⠀

This was an Itison deal I got as part of Mother’s Day, it was £19 for Afternoon Tea for two at the Apex Hotel in Glasgow.

I had never been here before to stay, dine or for Afternoon Tea but the images I saw on the offer page was very nice and I booked.

On arrival we were shown to the table, and asked what drinks we would like with the Afternoon Tea.

The Afternoon Tea…

When it arrived the presentation was very nice, and I couldn’t wait to start and see how this was compared to the other Afternoon Tea’s I have had.

From start to end this was very nice, my only issue was there could have been slightly bigger sandwiches or even a few more.

The one part of this that stood out was the little Haggis Bon Bon’s, these were AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall it was a very nice day, and very nice Afternoon and definitely worth the money. If I see the deal on again, I will be purchasing it again.

Afternoon Tea at Hilton Garden Inn (Glasgow) : Review

I was invited to the bloggers launch night for this relaunch, but unfortunately I couldn’t attend as I was in Italy at that point.

So I added it to my list to try and today I visited.

I had only ever been here once many years ago, so I had a rough idea of how it looked. On entering what a difference, the area looked much bigger and brighter and very modern.

I took a look outside as it was a nice day, I can’t remember if this is how it looked or this is now been improved but either way its very nice, and looked very relaxing.

 

The Food…

Afternoon Tea £N/A (used a voucher)

 


On arrival the presentation was very nice, another unique way to present the Afternoon Tea. Some places I have been to go for the traditional way, others have tried to be a little more modern just like to day….either way it always works.

The afternoon tea was very fresh, tasty and I enjoyed it very much. My issue normally is when it comes to the scones is it cheap cream or clotted (this is the better option to have when doing scone jam and cream) today was clotted which was excellent.

Overall

The revamp here for me looks really good, I was very impressed at how much it had changed and improved the look and feel. For me the outside looked much nicer than the inside, but thats only if you have a nice day in Glasgow to sit outside.

The service was very good today, and we got chatting to the manager who was very pleasant and helpful.
