When I was contacted by the lovely Jodie from The Treat Kitchen, which are a family run confectionery retailer operating in a few cities in England and nationally online, I was a bit worried. I was worried mainly because I do not have a sweet tooth. At all.
I know nowadays someone saying they do not like chocolate is almost a sin, basically blasphemy, but over the last few years my sweet tooth has managed to slowly disappear.
The Treat Kitchen sent over some goodies for me to review and I thought it would be a great opportunity to film an boxing video.
The Treat Kitchen supply over 300 different types of sweets, chocolate and fudge and have stores in Nottingham, Leicester Highcross and Intu Derby. They are opening two new stores really soon, in Coventry and Sheffield Meadowhall. But for those of you sighing perpetually because there isn’t a store near you, sigh no longer because they ship nationally!
The Treat Kitchen took me back to my childhood with this cute little bag of pear drops. Pear drops are a traditional hard boiled sweet. While eating these I could not help but have flash backs of a young(er) Paula running to the corner shop with her little sister to buy some 5p and 10p sweets. Those were simpler, happier times!
The pear drops were really sweet and fruity, the parallel opposite of the Radioactive Cherry sours. It is a well known fact that I can (occassionally) be drama queen but no joke, these sweets were almost the end of me. I may or may not have pulled the most hilarious faces in my unboxing video because of these sweets. After getting over the intense sourness, I loved the kick of cherry. However, I stand by my original stance – Why do people like sour sweets? It’s in the name, sweets, they should be sweet!
Now on to the coconut mushrooms. I must admit, I am not a huge fan of coconut so I wasn’t sure about this one. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised! The chocolate/caramel mixture on top of the marshmallow stalk was really nice. But trust me to choke on the coconut shavings!
*Technically this post is not sponsored, but the samples were sent to me. However, as always, this is all my opinion. If a girl who doesn’t like sweets or chocolate is telling you that this brand is quality, believe me it is quality!
