Zotter Christmas Crackling Bar Review

There are certain flavours that I associate with the holidays. The smell of a pine tree in the living room, the smell of a fire. Apple pie, pumpkin pie, eggnog and more all bring me back to Christmas day with ...

Askinosie Peppermint Bark

I can’t find much information about peppermint bark.  As a Canadian, we don’t have as much of a history of peppermint bark as it seems Americans seem to have.  I don’t remember having it around much growing up but I ...

Hotel Chocolat Mince Pies
