Be Right Back...

Comments (6) | Monday, June 28, 2010

We finally got internet at our new place.

Then the graphics card in my laptop died. Apparently a common problem with my model of laptop.
I wasn't too fussed, that's why you always buy extended warranty! Luckily Jose and the Genius Bar is fixing it for me and I should have it back this week.

Can't do blogging on Hamsley's laptop as he doesn't have Photoshop.

So, all I can say is, stay tunned... I have ALOT of blogging to catch up on!

For all other updates, you can follow me on Twitter.

Product Review: Bakers Delight - Passionfruit and White Chocolate Scones

Comments (9) | Monday, June 14, 2010

When offered to try the new Baker’s Delight white chocolate and passionfruit scones, I jumped at the opportunity. I had first been introduced to the scones from Baker’s Delight when I did a 6 week contract at BIC by the staff there. My favorites became the white chocolate and berry, as well as the chocolate chip and coconut.

Even though I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate, Baker’s Delight must use a very nice brand, as it works so well in their muffins.  Hamsley and I set off to buy some and came home to review them a few weeks ago. BUT since we moved house, and are without internet, currently living in the land of boxes; blogging isn’t something I can do very easily until life returns back to normal!

Hamsley and I both really enjoyed this variety of scone. I slightly warmed the scones in the microwave, which made the scones nice and warm, with the chocolate slightly melted. 
They are quite sweet on their own; my work my said they were actually too sweet for her, and couldn't finish her scone in 1 sitting.
She also commented on the passionfruit seeds in the scone. If you don't like the added crunch of the seeds then you might not enjoy these as much. We however, didn't really mind the seeds. 

I tried mine with jam, I wanted to put cream on as well as you would with a traditional scone, but the cream we tried whipping ended up getting spoiled. I think it would have been nice with both the jam and cream.

My favourite flavour is still the chocolate coconut scone, but this comes in a close second.
Try one today at your local Baker's Delight, or check out their other flavours on their website: www.bakersdelight.com.au/
