Kandemand (American Candy) Mystery Pack : Review


I had recently seen a lot of sweet boxes coming up on my Instagram, and thought “at some point I should try one and see what they are like” and Kandemand for me kept appearing more than others so I visited their website and this is what happened.

I didn’t know where to start, as in what to buy but I did spot a “Mystery Pack” option at £15 plus £5 for postage so since I couldn’t make my mind up I let Kandemand.

What i got

I had not heard of any of these before, and as you can see this pack was mostly chewy things.

I wont review each sweet as that would be too much, but I will do a wee highlight of my thoughts.

The Sweets

Since I am a big kid I started with the Pop Rocks, come on who doesn’t like these. These were mega sour and very loud but I liked them as reminded me of when I was younger.

The one labeled “Musketeers” reminded me of what we have in the UK a “Milky Way”, and I really like them so this went down a treat.

The Dentyne Fire was an interesting one, it is a Cinnamon flavoured chewing gum with a little spice added to it. At first I was like “hmmm not sure” then after a few more I really like these.

Overall :

As I said I wasnt going to review each item, as that would be too much. This is just a general overview of my order, and what I thought.

I am glad I opted for a mystery pack, as it made me try all new items that I might not have tried before and it was a lot of fun trying and tasting them.

Yup they are all gone, and it only took 3 days….bad I know 🙂

If you want to try something different then check out Kandemand, and do what I did with a mystery pack. The service was very good, the order was sent out fast and what I got was very interesting and new to me.

Pots & Co My 4 Pots : Review

Gifted


The guys over at Pots & Co sent me some of their pots to try, and hold a competition to win these sweet treats.

First things first was my top priority to try them and see what they were like.

In the past I have purchased a few pots from my local supermarket, and loved them so when they contacted me I knew heaven would be arriving at my door 🙂

The Pots

They sent me the following :

  • Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache x 2
  • Lemon & Lime Posset x 2
  • Chocolate & Hazelnut Praline x 2
  • Hot Chocolate & Salted Caramel Lava Cake x 2⁣

What a selection and all sounded very yummy!!!! so I couldn’t wait to dig in as soon as they arrived.

The Pots

I could have easily just had them all the day they arrived, as I have a mega sweet tooth but I decided to be good and have one a day.

Pots & Co : Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache

I decided to start with the Salted Caramel pot, as it sounded the sweetest from my selection.

OH! MY! GOD! I felt like I had died and gone to heaven with this one, every mouthful was just so smooth, sweet and so mmmmmm I was actually mega disappointed when I saw the bottom of the pot.

  • Flavour : 5

Pots & Co : Lemon & Lime Posset

Deciding what pot was next was a VERY tough choice but someone had to do it, and my next choice was the Lemon pot.

Just like the Salted Caramel pot, this was very smooth and had a perfect lemon flavour to it. For me most lemon desserts can either not have enough flavour, or way overpowering but for me this was the perfect balance in flavour.

  • Flavour : 5

Pots & Co : Chocolate & Hazelnut Praline

I am not a nuts person, so I only tried a little of this so my fiancee was the one that told me how it was.

She said it was very nice, and the chocolate and hazelnut created the perfect smooth and crunchy texture in her mouth.

Pots & Co : Hot Chocolate & Salted Caramel Lava Cake

Did I save the best till last?

I popped this into the oven and waited patiently on it getting warmer……then it was time to try.

I can understand why this is best served hot, the warm salted caramel was so mmmm

This for me was my second favourite after the Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Pots & Co for my sweet treats, and for allowing me to run a competition for them.

I enjoyed every sweet treat, and have even gone out and got some more as they are really really good.

My 1000% favourite was the Salted Caramel & Chocolate Ganache!!!

Please do check them out if you see them in your local supermarket, or online as if you have a sweet tooth like me you will have died and gone to heaven with these sweet pots 🙂

Candied Ice Cream Parlour (Falkirk) : Review

Candied Ice Cream Parlour
Unit 1 Maddiston Road
Rumford, Falkirk
FK2 0SB

V: 15th September 2019. T: 01324 312345 W: www.candiedicecream.co.uk


I got a wee ping in my Instagram inbox from Candied, inviting me to come to their place in Falkirk to try some of their sweets. I had to say YES as its a sweet shop, and you know me and my mega sweet tooth.

I thought lets make a wee day trip and see the Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel while I am here, so I set the address in my satnav and off I went.

First stop Kelpies…

I visited the Kelpies first, and had a nice walk around burning off some calories before I put many on.

Next stop Candied woohoo…

I arrived and couldnt wait to go inside and see what goodies they have.

Looking Around :

On entering you are presented with an amazing sight of many many flavours of ice cream, and they all look so so good.

I could see a massive pick & mix area, and a slushy area and ohh this looked so good my mouth was already watering and thats before seeing the menu.

I was given a menu and sat down.

I opened the menu and OMG I was in Heaven, there was SO SO SO many dishes I wanted to try but I never like to go overboard even if my eyes and stomach tell me to do different.

Churros : N/A Tonight, Normally £4.99

Crispy warm churros stuffed with either chocolate or caramel.

Visually everything today was very much eye candy, and visually tickled my taste buds.

I started with the ice cream, mmm ok so this tasted like proper Italian Ice cream. The flavours were amazing, and it was very creamy.

The Curros were very nice, and very fresh and tasted good.

Everything together was so good.

  • Presentation: 5
  • Taste : 5
  • Value for Money : N/A tonight

Hot Cookie Dough : N/A Tonight, Normally £4.99

2 freshly baked cookie dough rounds. Choose from milk chocolate and white chocolate.

Now this is the one I was REALLY looking forward to, I LOVE!!!!!!!! cookie dough and this was on my hit list to 100% try today.

Again visually very mmmm and both Ice creams tasted very creamy, and very full of flavour.

The cookie dough….O.M.G!!!!!! heaven in a box!!!! I could just sit and eat this all day.

  • Presentation: 5
  • Taste : 5
  • Value for Money : N/A tonight

Biscoff Waffle : N/A Tonight, Normally £4.99

Fluffy Belgian waffle smothered in rich Biscoff spread, caramel sauce and crunchy Biscoff biscuits!

I was starting to get full and was going to call it a day, then I saw this on the menu and had to try it.

I am also a big Biscoff fan, I could eat from the spreadable jar all day and not feel sick so it was time to try this.

Perfect, everything.

  • Taste : 5
  • Value for Money : N/A tonight

Overall

Firstly a BIG thanks to Candied for my invite, I had a great day and enjoyed every single mouthful.

If you have a sweet tooth like me, or the above tickled your taste buds then you HAVE to visit here!!!

I will 100% be back as I loved everything and want to try more.
