The aromas neat were like reading the dessert menu in a restaurant. Sticky toffee pudding, salty caramel bread and butter pudding, caramelized bananas, glace cherry cake, and orange and lemondrizzle loaf. We needed to take a sip to decide; sweet and spicy on the tongue. Flavours of dark fruits, dark bitter chocolate and dark spiced rum all put together in one delicious chocolate cake cookie – can I have one please! With a drop of water, white chocolate-coated green grapes and a ginger marzipan cake with candied citrus peel, whilst in the taste a fruit and vegetable orange carrot smoothie.
