It seems that our disappointing review of the new Magnum Chocolates caused much consternation up at Splendid Towers, when they got wind of the lack of noms we had awarded them after our last confectionary review, so much so, that a young lady called Salma was charged with getting in touch with us to ask if we would be interested in trying some other chocolates from the same range to see if we liked them any better ….
So with all due haste the aforementioned Salma sent out a small package to us, asking for our considered and much in demand opinion ….. how very, very exciting!
Naturally, we read all the bumf that came with the parcel first, so that we were all familiar with the delicacies to be evaluated….
….. this was then followed by some robust debate, at times heated as to what to review first ….. the Cornetto Chocolates or the treat sized Mini Milk lollies.
Put simply and unequivocally …. THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT ….. oooooh no!!! We loved the crispy, chocolaty wafer …. and the creamy “ice cream” centre, which can only be described as a confectionary and nomming triumph, which was complimented by the crunchy hazelnut sprinkles. It’s been a long time since there was so much contented nomming at the kitchen table of Castle Greysquirrel of a confectionary type nature. The little Cornettos really are just like the real thing, but without the ice cream headache ……
Such was Nigel’s robust enjoyment that he didn’t want to waste a morsel and insisted on licking all the wrappers clean, which has to be said was a trifle disgusting, especially the slurping noises that emanated from the middle of the table …… but high praise indeed for the Cornetto’s.
And our final score on our Richter Scale of noms? ……….. 15 out of 10!!! Nomcornettotastical!We think they would make a lovely and different addition to any après party, party bags ….. and should we have a party, they will be in ours, nom, nom nom!!!
Tomorrow …. our Mini Milk review!
