The Treat Kitchen | Review

This week, I was lucky enough to receive a delicious looking parcel in the form of sweets. Now, if there's one thing I like to review, it's definitely food. All kinds. So this was right up my street!

The Treat Kitchen is a family fun business which stems all the way back from selling sweets on a market stall & having worked for major retailers, Martin & Jess decided it was about time they opened a place of their own. Confectionary has always been a part of the Barnett family history with 2 working factories in Nottingham in the 1890's, giving them the bug & urge to open their own. It is a traditional sweet shop using modern, quirky & unusual packaging where you're able to see fudge & sweets being made before taking them home to indulge on!

Sweetshop Heroes - 'Tropical Pineapple'

I love how bright & summery these sweets look! Perfect for this time of year, even if it does rain most of the time. I don't actually like pineapple as a fruit so I was a little nervous to pop this one in my mouth but I was so surprised! I really loved the taste of this. It wasn't too weak or too intense & was nice & light.

Again, I don't actually like watermelon (I know what you're thinking - such a fussy bugger!) but I wanted to give it a go & yet again I was pleasantly surprised. Like the pineapple cubes, they flavour was light but just right. I love the little milk bottle packaging & the only negative I would have is the colour but you can't like everything right?!

You might feel like you're seeing a bit of a theme here but this time I couldn't get my head around it. I don't like banoffee pie at all. I gave it a whirl & could definitely taste all the flavours which is a positive but for me, it wasn't the one!

WARNING - These will blow your head off! Even thinking about these is making my face scrunch up!! If you love sour sweets, then these are for you! They're delicious & everything you want in a sour.

There's something about "sugar free" sweets that tends to put people off but these are utterly delicious. I received a fruit medley which definitely helped after the sour bombs! Being sugar free, I also didn't feel so bloated after which is an added bonus.

Overall, I really enjoyed the sweets. They were delicious, different & all completely separate from each other. The packaging is simple, quirky & easy to read & I will definitely be going into store as soon as I can!

The Treat Kitchen are also opening a shop in Derby (at Intu Derby) on Saturday 12th September. Unfortunately, I'm unable to attend (which I'm really sad about!) but make sure you head on down there to have a look at their delicious products especially as they're giving out 75,000 sweets!! The store will be open from 9am-7pm with an official ribbon cutting ceremony at 11am by the Mayor.

Thank you to The Treat Kitchen for sending me the sweets!
