OVERRATED: The Mini Eggs Easter Egg. For Mini Eggs being thrust at the front line of Cadbury's Easter army, you would imagine the Easter Egg version of it to be something special.
In reality it's a sad story - a hollow chocolate egg and perhaps five or six Mini Eggs themselves.
UNDERRATED: Mini Eggs Chocolate Gateau. It's basically the old Cadbury Swiss Gateau they used to make (with the chocolate stripes through it) but with added mini eggs. Anyone who mourns the EPIC SWISS GATEAU should nab it! It's just the same but CHOCOLATIER!
OVERRATED: Chocolate Eclairs.
They're really nothing special, I just like the chocolate really. And whereas profiteroles have a good chocolate/cream/pastry ratio, I find the Daddy version that is Eclairs don't. They are just a disappointing option for me.
Meringue and Cream is always a bit disappointing for me too, unless its in an Eton Mess. . I just feel that the cream and meringue don't add anything to each other, and if anything, just cause you to make a mess of yourself unnecessarily! (though in this example from the image, the added chocolate is a bit of a plus!)
UNDERRATED: Apple and Cream Turnovers are lovely (albeit not quite as good as just plain apple turnovers, but, one shouldn't complain ) . They also do Raspberry and Apple & Strawberry Flavour which are also pretty damn good.
Jam and Cream in a cake is always a good touch for me, they compliment each other well; the cream taking some of the sweetness of the jam and the jam just adding another flavour when the creaminess gets too much! So for that reason;
Strawberry Jam and Cream Scones
Overrated and Underrated of: Frozen Party Food Options?
Like drinking water? Nice and thirst-quenching, right? Ahh, I love mineral water. That was oddly hot, though. Now to follow that up with a hearty meal. What's that? Oh, that WAS my Weight Watchers soup?
UNDERRATED: MCCAIN JACKETS.
I thought it was going to be MEGA CRAP. But no; cooked in minutes, it was super-easy and pretty damned tasty and filling for the size of it! And yet McCain are still best known for Micro Chips etc; something that fills up my big toe alone!
The single most overrated cereal FULL STOP, Krave is NOTHING like the cereals it rips off (Chocolatey Squares, Nougat Pillows), but is THREE TIMES the price. To try the original version is to ask yourself "What was I THINKING?!"
SPECIAL K, too.
Ludicrously overpriced, luring housewives into believing it's the core component of a miracle diet. In reality Special K has one of the HIGHEST GI ratings of ANY cereal - you would achieve better, more sustained results from eating two McDonalds standard Hamburgers per day than two bowls of this substituting standard meals!
Special mention goes to the Crunchy Nut range which are advertised TO DEATH, yet are nutritionally worse for you than eating a serving of cake.
FRUIT AND FIBRE
For a fruity, nutty, bran-filled breakfast, it's deceptively sweet and delicious!
Don't be fooled. This is the sweetest, most addictive wholegrain cereal in existence.
Special mentions go to Rice Krispies, the cereal everyone loves but is often overlooked for Coco Pops or Ricicles, and All-Bran, which is effectively what Bran Flakes lovers progress onto for the BIGGER HIT!
