I like a treat as much as anyone else, but I've been trying to keep the weight off just recently - so when my mum passed a packet of these underneath my nose this lunch time you can imagine it was pretty difficult to say no. In fact I was naughty and had three, but my excuse is they're not that big, and well I'm going to the gym later despite the rain, so I'll more than work them off after an hour working out! ~*~ Thorntons ~*~ Anyone out there that doesn't know what Thorntons do? If you don't, it's a company that makes chocolate items predominantly - they also make fudges and toffees as well but if someone says Thorntons I immediately ... Read the complete review

Thorntons mini caramel shortbread is normally quite expensive in my local Coop food store at around £1.80 so I was interested to see a large stack of them in the clearance corner at just 89 pence, which is more like what I am prepared to pay. They were still a day within date so I didn't expect any quality problems despite the lower price. A treat was in order anyway since my youngest had just come home from his first day at secondary school; a happy one too by the sound of it. The attractive and traditionally styled packaging contains twelve tiny squares of what I would call millionaire's shortbread in a moulded plastic tray. From previous attempts in the ...

I seem to have a ridiculously sweet tooth nowadays and i seem to always have something that i can't resist jump out at me at the supermarket as i am walking at toddler pace. The last visit it was a pack of these caramel shortcakes, which are sometimes found elsewhere as millionairres shortbread. A gooey delicious piece of heaven if done right. One of my old work colleagues used to make me this as a treat when i was pregnant so i think it was a bit of nostalgia that made me choose these. Firstly, price - currently these are on offer at Tesco for only £1. Now that appeals immediately to my sense of being a bargain hunter, although really a cunning ploy as i ...

I've just bought my second ever packet of these as they're currently on offer at Tesco (well,my local Tesco Express at least...) for a pound.Normal price is £1,52 though,which I think is pretty good for a Thorntons product anyway. I absolutely love millionaire's shortbread and have tried pretty much every version of it I've seen in various shops and bakeries, but I think these Thornton's ones will take some beating now.Although they're "mini",they're the perfect size in my opinion, and I tend to have 3 or 4 in one sitting,which probably equates to around half the size of a bar you would buy at a bakery.The biscuit is nice and crumbly (I believe ...

I popped down to co-op today as I fancied some fresh bread for lunch, as the small Tesco I usually do my top-up shops at doesn't sell fresh bread. While I was in the co-op I spotted these on one of the shelves and thought I'd give them a try as it's been a long time since I had what I know as 'millionaires shortbread' and Thornton's is a well known brand so I doubted that I would be disappointed in the quality. For just under £2 you get 12 mini caramel shortcakes, each roughly 1" square, in a vacuum packed tray covered in a plastic packaging (seen in the photo) to keep them fresh. You may think these seems like quite alot of money however if you compare ... Read the complete review
