You’ve probably noticed that my fashion posts have become few and far between recently. The honest truth is, since Autumn started, I’ve had a serious clothes slump. After searching and searching for a number of weeks, for clothes that interest me, I just gave up and promptly replaced my clothing habit, with a food habit instead. But, the good news is, I think my clothing slump is finally over. Sure, it was extremely kind to my wallet (because food is usually cheaper/ I say usually because I read Halal Girl paid £72 for some mediocre lamb chops at Buddha Bar in London!), but it was getting slightly depressing living in the single oversized M&S mustard jumper I bought myself in the past few months (yes it’s ridiculously comfortable and looks good, but one item does not a Winter wardrobe make…).
Meanwhile, whilst I gather together some outfit of the days, I want to give some extremely exciting news to Orange Smarties lovers. I thought my love affair with Orange Smarties was over after Christmas (where they promptly ran out of stock in EVERY store) and resigned myself into waiting a whole nine months for anything that exciting. However, the people at Nestle (seriously do these guys have new leadership or something?) seem to have hit the nail on the head again. For Easter (these holidays are so exciting in terms of treats/ I mean we all love Easter eggs) they have released a large Orange Smarties egg, with small eggs inside. Now, it’s not the usual con, which consists of a mediocre plain chocolate egg, with a small bag of the actual chocolate inside the egg. This is a WHOLE EGG tasting of orange chocolate inside. The WHOLE EGG (can you tell I’m excited?). The orange chocolate is creamy and smooth, and exactly like the centre of an orange Smartie.
As I make my way through this orange flavoured chocolate (let me tell you, it’s downright impossible to eat the whole thing in one sitting), I’m dreaming of what it would be like if Cadbury’s filled the whole Easter egg, with the crème egg filling inside. I can imagine it getting quite sickening, but I’d still love to try it (because it would be so much better than the hollow shell with the 3 measly mini eggs you get inside, which they currently sell). Speaking of crème eggs (yes I know they don’t taste the same anymore/ why do we sell all our best companies?!) they have this pretty cool Easter Egg hunt in London, specifically for crème eggs (only for £5 per person). You even get to choose a crème egg treat at the end. I’m not overly keen on the white egg hunt competition because I swear some of those eggs look like they’ve been opened and put back in the box (I seriously hope it’s not staff doing this in the hope of winning a prize as that’s totally gross). To be on the safe side, I just purchase the boxed ones (because who wants a crème egg that’s potentially been unwrapped and touched by someone?!). I still have a Korean food haul in the pipeline (because it just took me weeks to taste the stuff) and a few more food posts before we go back to our favourite topic!
That’s all for now. Have you got any exciting food news? Feel free to share below.
