Thorntons Sicilian Lemon Merangue Cookies Review
The smell of lemon is the first thing that hits you as you open the bag in the box. That and the HUGE size of these cookies. This is the fourth kind of cookie in the new range of Thorntons biscuits (cookies).
The lemon is quite pronounced and it seems to have been slightly enhanced in the mixture but that isn’t really detracting from the cookie itself. The base cookie is a fairly standard cookie dough which has had added to it a lemon flavouring and white chocolate covered meringue pieces kind of like a reverse lemon meringue pie.
Mmmmm… piiiieeeeee…. *drools*
While this is a hard cookie, it didn’t seem as hard as the triple chocolate chunk cookies. This means its extra thickness doesn’t impact on teeth 🙂 I had trouble tasting the meringue in the white chocolate but did find it less sweet than the praline cookie.
I’d buy these for a party!

#nofilter📷 because this #chocolate🍫 is just awesome! Some of the best #milkchocolate (and white and dark) on the planet!
Flavour-wise this is an exceptional chocolate - made from some of the best beans from #madagascar🇲🇬 this chocolate is grown, fermented, dried, roasted, conched, and tempered into some of the finest #awardwinning chocolate on the planet before being packaged and shipped from Madagascar to us. That means all the added value bits happen in the country of origin meaning it’s about as ethical as you can get!
This makes this chocolate better than Fairtrade, better than fairly traded - it’s totally ethicality awesome and it’s tasty.
I’m always educating people about slavery and chocolate but I’d also like to remind people about the awesomeness that exists out there.
At £5.99 a bar on #amazonprime it’s really worth buying lots. My current favourites are the 70% ORGANIC #darkchocolate bar and the 50% milk chocolate.
To properly taste #beantobar chocolate of any kind, take a small (5g or so) piece and place it in your mouth. Don’t chew or suck - just let it melt normally and as it melts exhale through your nose. You’ll find the taste of the chocolate lasts and you feel satisfied longer. That way your bar lasts longer and voila - best bargain ever plus fewer calories consumed.
#chocolatetasting in the proper way will help with your #weightlossplan through #portioncontrol and leaving you satisfied for longer.
Keep to your #newyearsresolutions one step at a time without sacrificing #deliciouschocolate at all!

In about 3 days I’ll need a dozen to make it through to the end of Friday!
What is rescuing you today - the first day back to a full, long, 5-day week?
