Indulgent Treats from Thomas Fudge

I am always keen to try new things and usually say yes when I am asked if I would like to try some Samples.  I was recently asked would I like to try some samples of Thomas Fudge's line of savoury and sweet biscuits. How could I refuse! 

Ever since Thomas Fudge founded his remarkable bakery back in 1916, they have been making ridiculously delicious delights for people who simply don’t have time for mediocre. Scrumptious somethings for double-or-nothing food lovers whose fancies are tickled by serious baking. From the beginning, local sourcing and artisan craftsmanship has always been a real focus for Thomas Fudge's and remarkable baking remains at the heart of everything they do with recipes passed down from generation to generation. To this day they still slowly bake our tasty treats in batches. They are very proud to have retained many years of knowledge and expertise in their bakers, many of whom have been with them boy and man. 

Their bakery is still firmly based in the heart of beautiful bountiful Dorset and this is something they are super proud of. The original bakery was in the sleepy rural village of Leigh. They moved a few miles down the road to their current location in Stalbridge in 1998.

Milk Chocolate Flapjacks - A wonderfully chewy fusion of oats, butter and syrup, baked until golden and then dunked into creamy Belgian milk chocolate for good measure. Nibble them over coffee with friends, grab one as an instantly satiating snack, or pass them off as your own when the mother-in-law pops over. 

These were incredibly buttery, sweet and quite moreish. Chewy and really oaty. Not dry in the least like some kinds you might buy.  They tasted homemade. Todd really enjoyed these.

They are also available in Dark Chocolate. 

Milk Chocolate Florentines - A lavish fusion of fruit, almonds, hazelnuts and sticky caramel, cloaked in a thick shawl of creamy Belgian milk chocolate. Is it a biscuit to be smashed and sprinkled over an ice cream sundae? Or the perfect present for a host, to ensure you get another dinner invite? 

Chewy and nutty and studded with fruits, I called dibs on these. Quite simply lovely.  These are also available in Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel. 

White Chocolate Lemon Blisscuits - Zingy lemon biscuits bursting with chewy candied peel, dunked in thick Belgian white chocolate for extra naughtiness. Exceptional when dipped into a steaming cup of Earl Grey, they add incomparable crunch when crumbled over a lemon posset and never fail to provoke a murmur of delighted surprise. 

I wasn't expecting the bits of sugared and chewy candied peel.  These are incredibly scrumptious and very moreish, especially if you are as fond of lemon as I am. BLISScuits indeed!

Blisscuits also come in Dark Chocolate Stem Ginger and Triple Chocolate.

Chickpea & Sesame Flatbreads - Chickpeas, sesame and cumin baked into individual flatbreads: a marvellous marriage of flavours. Incredibly elegant and satisfyingly snappable, they’re the perfect partner for almost everything dippable or toppable. Dunk a shard into a big bowl of hummus, or top with a good dollop of baba ganoush for that extra je ne sais quoi. There’s no end to their versatility. 

I really wanted to like these, but there was something about the texture in my mouth that didn't quite mesh for me. I think it was the chickpea flour.  Other than that they had plenty of flavour and were lovely and crisp.

They also come in Cheddar and Shallot. (I think I would perhaps have enjoyed this flavour more.)

Their savoury range also includes Biscuits for Cheese and Wafers. Topping, dipping and nibbling with all manner of wondrous delights, their delectable savoury range is a cheese lover’s dream, a nibbler’s delight and a great store cupboard essential.  

You can also use their range of sweets and savouries to add indulgent twists to your own creations, such as sweet accents for your cupcakes and cakes, toppings for crumbles, crisp savoury toppings for casseroles and meats, etc.  Let your imagination be your guide. 

Their baked treats can be found in selected stores up and down the land – Asda, Booths, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose – as well as all upstanding farm shops and delis, and online from their website.

Check out their website to find out more about their products, etc.  

Note - I was sent product free of charge for the purpose of review, but was not required to write a positive review in exchange.  Any and all opinions are my own.
