Mr Kipling - Terrifying Toffee Whirls (Asda) By @Cinabar

Mr Kipling - Terrifying Toffee Whirls

There hasn’t been many Halloween products this year, usually I find a decent selection of goodies but it has been one strange year. People in our high risk area are being asked to stay in this year rather than trick or treat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up, go for a pumpkin spotting walk and watch a scary movie or too. We will be watching the original Ghostbusters and Spectre has found the best themed beer I have ever seen, but keep your eyes open for that tomorrow.

Today we have these Mr Kipling - Terrifying Toffee Whirls. Is toffee terrifying? I’m not sure that it is, but I do appreciate the Roald Dahl box celebrating the book The Witches, which was a favourite of mine when I was a kid. The box is nicely themed for the season.

Inside the pack are six Whirls, each with a buttercream and toffee filling and there appears to be a decent amount in each. The biscuits are soft and the filling is creamy but I thought the toffee was far from terrifying and was actually very mild. It added a nice bit of sweetness but there was no drama here and if anything that golden butterscotch flavour was a bit lost. These were pleasant but plainer than expected. If you buy some you might need a Halloween film to the terrifying element.

I tried the chocolate topped variety and thought they were fabulous!
