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 girls do lovely fresh home-made baking, they based in the East End of Glasgow and are available for collection or delivery.

To order you need to send them a message via their Instagram page.

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.

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 🙂
