The other day, Mr Flicking the Vs came over and presented me with this little gem:
It is one of my favourite things in the world: a previously unknown vegan treat. It is an Eat Chic peanut butter cup - whose virtues I have waxed lyrical about on more than one occasion - but it's not just any Eat Chic peanut butter cup. It is an Eat Chic raspberry jam and peanut butter cup, and that is an even better thing.
It's better because it's got all the lovely richness of dark chocolate and nuts, but there's now a sharpness that cuts through that richness. You couldn't eat two of them, but you'll be so full of joy by the end of the first one, you won't need a second one.
It wasn't the only raspberry and chocolate combination that went in my face recently. There was also this:
There's raspberry jelly on the bottom, chocolate pudding on the top, and chocolate shavings to try and make it look like I actually did something in the kitchen. This was a cheat's treat - the jelly just involved adding water, the pudding similarly only needed some non-dairy milk. If I could have got someone to grate the chocolate for me, I would have done that too.
In other news of things I've been loving recently, here's the last of my Choices caramels. I love those guys. Sadly, they've stopped stocking them at my local supermarket, so let's just have a minute's silence for the disappearing chocolate caramels. Long may they live in my memory.
