Welcome to a round-up of all the most delicious sugary snacks newly launched. Expect unique flavour combinations and never-before-tried concoctions. You’re welcome!
February is a tough month, so why make it any tougher? Instead of subscribing to the diet narratives that this time of year is so known for, we’ll be staying true to form and embrace eating whatever we want, whenever we want – especially when there are so many delicious treats coming out.
As an ode to all of the innovative sugary creations coming our way, from chocolates and biscuits to sweets and hot chocolates, we’re detailing the best new launches that you need to keep your cupboards stocked with.
So, scroll down to find out what weird and wonderful sweet creations are on offer, whether they be limited edition snacks to snaffle or soon-to-be long-standing favourites.
Maryland It's Mint To Be Cookies
Maryland’s cookies are known for being a delicious balance of crumbly and buttery with big chunks of chocolate. But, just in time for February, the brand has decided to break out of its milk chocolate box and explore some new flavours.
It’s Mint To Be combines both mint and chocolate cocoa into cookie dough with a generous amount of moreish chocolate chips and crunchy sugar pearls.
Elsewhere, the new Hazelnutter flavour is packed full of real roasted hazelnuts and a rich chocolate hit, for a creamy, nutty aftertaste. Yum.
Shop exclusively at Sainsburys now, from £1.35.
Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Peace Pop
As much as we would love to carry a big tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream around with us constantly, it doesn’t always feel socially acceptable to chomp cookie dough in public.
So, hurray, because the ice cream giant has finally released an on-the-go option, launching its first-ever ice cream lolly called the Peace Pop.
The Peace Pop is made up from Legen-dairy fairtrade vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips and a peace sign-shaped, cookie-dough-inspired centre, dipped in a soft chocolatey coating, which is popped on a stick to take it with you on the go.
Peace Pops will be available in Co-op stores from mid-January. RRP £2.20 each.
Jaffa Cake passionfruit
The very word jaffa means orange, so it feels slightly blasphemous that McVitie’s have re-spun this firm favourite with a passionfruit filling.
But, they have. So, we might as well give it a try, right? Here’s what to expect: the same ol’ spongey base and film of dark chocolate to finish, but inside there’s now a layer of zingy passionfruit-flavoured filling.
What’s more, they’ve also released a ‘cheeky’ cherry flavour in unison with the new passionfruit offering, which also sounds rather intriguing.
Jaffa Cakes Passionfruit and Cherry can be bought in all major supermarkets (not available online currently), RRP £1.20
