Choc Pot...



OK, so I know this is already in some stores in the UK but it's not everywhere yet so sit tight! 
Before Christmas I entered a competition on the Sweet Freedom Newsletter to win a jar of their new Choc Pot that was being launched and I won! Now most of you know I'm a savoury fan but I do fall off the choccie wagon every now and then... If you've followed me on here for a while, you'll know I'm a big Choc Shot fan... it gives you that choccie fix without crying with guilt over a Kit Kat Chunky (which is 12SP FYI!)... I usually add Choc Shot to my banana pancakes, >>> HERE <<< and when I'm thinking pancakes, I'm usually craving sweet stuff and it really does the job, also drizzle a bit of the Orange Spice one over your meringue and fizzy jelly, you won't look back! Lots of people bake successfully with them too, great to add in the breakfast baked oat muffins!

Right, the new kid on the block... so the jar is 250g so it's going to last you forever! (It keeps for 6 weeks in the fridge)... Unless you have a real addiction and then it's a different kinda meeting for YOU!





When I opened the jar there was a strong smell of cocoa... it's that lovely dark bitter chocolate smell and as I was working out the SmartPoints I left it open on my desk... moths to a flame I tell ya! It spreads easily, I even checked it again this morning from the fridge and it doesn't go rock hard when it's stored...and it melts easily (see crumpet below! yum!) ... its not the kinda spread you would sit and eat with a spoon and keep going if that makes any sense because it's such condensed flavour, and the portion size is 5g which when you taste it you'll see is plenty for that chocolate flavour... AND It's out in time for pancake season.. YAY! 




This was a 5g portion spread over a standard size crumpet and there was plenty...



For those with allergies... 



and the ingredients... 


It's already out in some stores but for my UK friends it's in ASDA from 20th Feb and in the health sections of larger Boots stores from April 3rd, but it's coming to all the major supermarkets! 

For my Irish friends its going to be stocked in Holland & Barrett and Tesco to start with, and will then filter everywhere you can get the original Choc Shot now... 



Now I know people will try to compare it to this bad boy but they're very different in taste and the thing is with WW if you want this, you can have it, just point it, simples... it's all down to how you want to spend your SmartPoints and personally I'd rather spend mine on another pancake and still get my choccie fix!  So how do the SPs work out on it? Well I've compared the two just to show the difference because there's no processed sugar in it...

Like I said, I won this (sign up to the Sweet Freedom newsletter, they are always doing little giveaways!) and I'm just sharing the SP love! If you're a choccie fan it might be the thing that saves you driving to the 24hr garage at midnight for a Wispa (11SP) ... just me?! sigh...
