Thorntons Spooky Caramel Shortcake Bites (Co-Op) By @Cinabar

Thorntons Spooky Caramel Shortcake Bites

It has been a strange year, and I’m not completely sure how Halloween is going to play out. Our local neighbourhood is running a pumpkin carving competition with the idea that people go on Halloween walks and then vote online for favourites, it is being organised via Facebook similar to the scarecrow competition they organised in the Spring. Have you seen the film Hot Fuzz, we’ve not lived here long but that is how it feels, all these events are organised “for the greater good”. :-D

So I have bought Halloween treats but the chances are that due to Covid restrictions in our area I won’t be able to share any. These particular Thorntons Spooky Caramel Shortcake Bites are not wrapped either making it very difficult to give them out to Trick or Treaters at the best of times. Lucky for me I had to open them anyway for the blog and we chose to snack on them while watching the last episode of Stranger Things season 3, which needed something sweet to help compensate for the emotional rollercoaster!

Once opened I have to say I was impressed with the decoration on the Thorntons Spooky Caramel Shortcake Bites, they are metallic gold on top and have all sorts of smart halloween shapes on them. They look very pretty. There aren’t that many bites in the pack though and they are quite small and well spaced out. I gave one a try and was rather impressed. I always have it in my head that Caramel Shortcake is a heavy stodgy item but these were buttery and light, there was plenty of golden caramel, and a nice touch of milk chocolate. They were in fact too easy to eat and the packet didn’t last long at all, I really enjoyed the the sweet tones and the lighter than expected base, pure yum. They got me through that last episode of Stranger Things which was totes emotional, even if I did have to still watch the trailer for season 4 just make sure things were going in a better direction.

If you enjoy Stranger Things have you tried Dark on Netflix?

A bit more grown up and well worth a go.

Printed caramel shortcake squares? Meh.

They were tasty and pretty though, not that many Halloween products about this year, seen a few Xmas things. I have watched Dark and it was really good! Also watched The Woods, The Stranger, Money Heist and Safe. New to Netflix, it was a 'lockdown' purchase! :-D
