Marks & Spencer Gluten Free Salted Caramel Millionaire Slice
Recently Marks and Spencer have added a few new products to their gluten-free range, including brownies, cookies, cakes...bravo to them for that! Since salted caramel is still the "in thing" in snacks, it's no surprise they have jumped on the bandwagon. And unlike the Boots Salted Caramel slice I reviewed last year, I can report that this version from M&S was much, much better. Hurrah! (Apologies for the bad pic but I was on the bus - it was hard to get a decent shot!)
The slice consists of a base of buttery polenta style shortbread, salted caramel, chopped hazelnuts and a layer of milk chocolate. All I can say is...this slice tasted fantastic! The base is rich and buttery, softer than regular shortbread but just as nice. The caramel layer is also buttery sweet with a nice lick of salt that is neither overpowering nor weak...it was "just right". The hazelnuts brought a bit of crunch and nutty flavour but didn't overpower the caramel at all. The chocolate tops everything off perfectly with a creamy cocoa kick, making this slice the perfect combination of buttery, salty, creamy sweet flavours.
Whether you're gluten free or not, this is one seriously tasty Millionaires Slice that I'd recommend to anyone! You can find them in the sandwich section of M&S, there's also a gluten-free brownie bar and a Chocolate Cake slice.
8.5 out of 10.
