Mr Kipling’s Fiendish Fancies (Waitrose)

Happy Halloween!!

I was trying to find something new or interesting to talk about for Halloween, and was a little disappointed by the poor selection. There are only so many packets of chocolate foil coated pumpkins / ghosts etc... that the world needs.

Mr Kipling’s Fiendish Fancies
Thankfully these cakes, labelled as a limited edition, caught my eye. They are very nicely packaged, perfect for Halloween. The inside is a little more disappointing as they are just orange (coloured not flavoured) and black fondant fancies. The same fondant fancies available all year round. Don't get me wrong, they tasted lovely just as you would expect. I was kind of hoping the product itself would be a little more seasonal, even if it was just a case of icing in the shape of spiders!

Not so limited it seems - just got a box for Halloween 2009.

A bit Orangey but mostly the same as the normal ones. Not a bad thing though.

So these have made a come back... but it would have been nice for them to have some sort of new twist!
