Jamie and I went to see The Post at the cinema the other day. I thought it was quite boring! Jamie absolutely loved it but I just never got into it and thought it was slow. I had rather high expectations and was really looking forward to see it but I don’t know, it just wasn’t what I expected it to be. It’s a shame but we still had a good time and I’m glad Jamie liked it. I guess I was expecting something more like Spotlight, a film which we both absolutely loved. I don’t think I blinked the entire time we watched that film when we saw it in the cinema.
When I’m at the cinema I sometimes like having a little treat with me and since Livia’s Kitchen recently launched in Boots we swung by before the film started so I could try their latest release, the Biccy Boms. If you haven’t heard of Livia’s Kitchen before, they specialise in creating all natural sweet treats and their website is full of tasty recipes. They also sell a healthier and natural version of Millionaires Shortbread. I’ve read loads about their newbies, Biccy Boms, and seen people raving about them so of course I was tempted to try them. It’s nice to have a treat when you have a cinema date night so this was the perfect opportunity to try them out.
They come in bigger packs or small packs of two. I went for the chocolate and salted maca in the small packs. As soon as the lights faded out in the cinema I went for it and tried the salted maca. Unfortunately I thought the chocolate on the outside was far too sweet. It also says on the packet there should be a soft date centre, I was expecting gooeyness but it was all a bit dry. I didn’t really like. I was wondering if it could’ve just been the flavours or maybe it was a bad batch. I wasn’t sure so then decided to try the chocolate flavour, again it was far too sweet and it all felt really dry and uninspired on the inside.
I really thought it was a a shame because I follow Livia’s Kitchen on social media and always drool over their healthy but indulgent sweet treats. I was really hoping these Biccy Boms would be good but no I wouldn’t buy them again. Have you tried Biccy Boms? What were your thoughts? I’d love to hear!
