Last week the excellent A Quarter Of sent me what could be the next hot thing this Halloween. For those of you who haven’t heard of A Quarter Of they are one of the biggest online sweet shops, specialising in retro sweets and treats for the whole family, not only that they are celebrating their 10th anniversary next year.
So you may be thinking what has this got to do with chillis? Well to celebrate Haloween they have released a nice new touch on apple bobbing, in the form of Trick or Sweet apple sherbert pips. These are no ordinary apple pips for 1 in every 10 pips hides a dark secret, they are laced with hot and spicy chilli. There’s little to no difference in colour between the chill and non chilli pips so it really is down to chance.
Each pip is flavoured with real Cox’s apples and has no artificial flavours or colourings…..they are darn tasty too, I was planning on saving them for the trick or treater’s but have ended up munching most of them. The chilli ones pack quite a punch, they wont leave you gasping for breath but they will give you a little bit of a shock.
They come in at £2.27 for a 160g tub which is a bargain if you want to see the faces on either your party guests or the kids at the door in a couple of weeks time.
