Marks & Spencer Belgian White Chocolate Coated Blueberries

A new find!

Bought a packet when I was at Marks & Spencers over the weekend. Was looking for my favourite potato rings (which, by the way, has been out of stock for the past few weeks - argh!) when I saw this... White chocolate and blueberries sounded like an interesting combination so I thought I'll give this a try.

Here's what it really is - freeze-dried blueberries coated with white Belgian chocolate, dusted with blueberry powder. Ok, so freeze-dried blueberries doesn't sound very appetizing, but really it tastes very much like raisins. It's an interesting twist on your usual chocolate coated raisins.

It's a bit of a weird fake-looking purple colour (because of the blueberry powder dusting). But pop one tiny little piece in your mouth and I guarantee you will not be able to stop at just one :)

It costs $3.90 - not that cheap for such a small packet... but that just forces me to ration. So it works out perfectly for me - I don't eat too much so I don't put on too much weight, and I don't eat it up too fast so I don't spend ridiculous amounts of money buying more of it!

Hmmm.. wonder if it'd work with fresh blueberries... Actually, never tried grapes dipped in chocolate before..

I guess with enough chocolate, anything dipped in chocolate would be good. (e.g. chocolate covered ants, chocolate flavoured sawdust, chocolate covered pigs ear)
