What? Quite possibly the most OBSCENE-looking treat I’ve ever laid eyes on. Sold as a Chocolate and Honeycomb Cake, it’s essentially what happens when a Crunchie Bar and Cake Mix get it on.
Namely: goo galore.
The Sponge alone was a dream come true: extra golden, extra moist, and extra tasty – not too dissimilar to Honeycomb, in fact.
It was the Icing, however, which took the whole thing to another dimension.
As far as I could tell, this comprised primarily of numerous Cadbury’s Crunchie Bars that had been melted down and mixed with some sumptuous soft Cream Cheese (occasionally lending the substance a slightly strange tang).
As if that wasn’t enough to excite me, there were even generous shards of Crunchie studded across the top.
The richness of it all was immense – and, cheese-tang aside, transported me to a state of more-or-less babbling incoherence.
By the end, I too was a sticky, wet mess.
Like I said: OBSCENE
Where? The Dalston Superstore, a trendy bar-cum-eatery on the central Hipster Highway (a.k.a. Kingsland High Street)
How Much? £3 for a takeaway slice
I say again: OBSCENE
