As I blogged before this is my favourite chocolate ever but the nearest place I can get it is in Cardiff’s Wally Delicatessen. They finally sell them on amazon and you can buy 1-6 full-size bars a pack. Ocado.com the online supermarket also stock them however they do not deliver to my area code. So Amazon has come to the rescue…
U P D A T E :
I’m choosing to give up chocolate for lent….
I’ve been going to this Noodle & Rice Bar since Summer 2015 and I order the same dish every time: Egg noodle, Delhi sauce (chili, garlic and coriander) plus veg and Tiger prawns. It is a generous serving and delicious- I’m addicted. It is located on 57-59 Commercial Rd, Hereford HR1 2BP down the hill from the Sixth Form. Definitely recommended!
It is open 7 days a week from 12:00pm – 11:00pm
Above is the Farmer Tom’s beef burger: Hereford Beef Patty, Mature Cheddar, Dill Pickles, Mustard Mayo, Ketchup, Baby Gem, Brioche. It sounds a good choice along with the rosemary salted chips it looks pretty good. The Burger shop at Aubrey street sells burgers only, its website looks fantastic its instagram page is chic but the beefy patty’s wasn’t as juicy as expected, but then it was my first ever visit. All in all worth a visit on the chilly Christmas Eve I went in to visit. It is under a brand called “A Rule of Tum.”
The Waitrose café is a great coffee shop choice even when you’re not grocery shopping! With your my Waitrose card you can get x1 free tea or coffee.
Above is the Emmental cheese and mushroom toastie which is perfection and a tomato soup with a dash of balsamic vinegar. Always an enjoyable choice.
Located on the high-street this newly opened café is a real treat! There was freshly baked brownies and coffee cake slices being topped up and a connoisseur array of coffee’s to chose from. Their hot chocolate’s are divine with a distinct flavour. Baguette’s (white or granary) richly filled with smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber; and uniquely flavoured side salads with a Moroccan twist depending what day of the week you pop. All in all highly recommended and a wonderful addition to Hereford’s high-street. Though I do hope in the winter months they enable the option of toasted Panini’s!
Tandem Bakery opened Tuesday 1st September and I visited it for the first time Thursday 3rd for a celebratory lunch because that was the publication date of my latest well-being guide: “How to cure Eczema naturally.”
There was a display at WHSmith for this new company’s sweet bars. Anything with salted caramel is an immediate grab and buy scenario. This 70g (x2 35g bars) is £1.99. It sells itself as: “Sumptuous salted caramel enveloping a row of peanuts on a bed of peanut praline encased in luxury milk chocolate.”
The taste? No salted caramel flavour and not particularly nutty. In some ways it is an overpriced handmade British feeble version of Reese’s pieces without the punch.
When a business or brand’s image is predictable and you can simulate in your mind how they drafted their ideas for branding you expect the flavour to be as stated. Why else go out of your way with describing the product as (see quote above on “sumptuous…enveloping a row…” The packaging is trying too hard when they should have tried harder on flavour quality. Merely sweet milk chocolate with a slight nutty caramel taste. Not the decadent and irresistible blend of salted caramel and peanuts. It’s Business ABC’s: improve product, not shelf space.
I have made a most wonderful little discovery. Having recently been spring cleaning and purchasing some new desk seat cushions and bits and bobs at Dunelm I tried their café Pausa.
It is an absolutely wonderful café. The Panini’s are scrumptious, lot’s of cakes to choose from, the hot chocolate is delicious and the plates are cubically cute too! If this was an independent café chain located centrally in city centre I’d be going nearly everyday it is that good. A very underrated café-you just would not think it would be so great but it is!
