Lion Nuts

Oh dear. So on my randonnée through NY this weekend, we happened upon a deli – which happened to sell choccies from the Uk. I couldn’t help but indulge as a little taste of home is always good for ones spirits. I love Lion bars, (especially when their name is said out loud by my French friends who call it ‘Lyon’..hehe), but this limited edition, with a rather unfortunate name, caught my eye. And when said oft enough, my ears. Dear oh dear.

Name aside – it tasted yummy. The noisette flavour gave a sort of nutella meets kit kat meets crunch bar effect. So very delicious! I highly reccomend you try out ‘Lion Nuts’ if you find it at a shop near you. Now I just need to write to nestle and discourage them from continuing to use such a highly suggestive name. ay-yi-yi.
