A Very Alcoholic Sugar Rush

Nestlé have claimed to have discovered how to reconstruct the sugar in its chocolate bars so the amount can be cut by up to 40%. They say it will be ready by next year, but will it taste as good? Unfortunately, we will have to wait to find out… After finding out about our favourite alcoholic sweet treats below, click here to learn more about the new development in our blog post if you haven’t already!

While we (impatiently) wait, we have no choice but to make do with the already available range of treats to sweeten up our weekends with something a little different and treat our sweet tooth… not that we’re complaining! Don’t say we don’t love you.

Rosé Gummy Bears
Sugafina is New York’s ‘luxury candy store’ and introduced rosé flavoured gummy bears into our lives. The sweets had already sold out within 2 hours of them introducing the flavour and they’ve been flying off the shelves ever since they first hit the store – they even had to create a waiting list!

Prosecco Gummy Bears
Will you be visiting a John Lewis any time soon or just happen to live near to one (or are willing to make the journey)? If the answer to any of the questions is yes, then you would be mad not to treat yourself to a box of Sugarsin’s Prosecco Gummy Bears at £6.50 a box. They may be expensive but are delicious and alcoholic – the perfect combination and a tasty alternative to a bottle of wine!

Champagne Truffles
Champagne truffles are most definitely a thing and will make your tastebuds feels as though they’re in heaven. Literally.

Cocktail Pastilles
Harvey Nichols stocks cocktail pastilles from Smith and Sinclair that seem expensive at £9.50, until you learn that they contain 6% alcohol. Yes, they will put you over the driving limit and no, you won’t be able to stop eating once you start!

Enjoy tantalising your taste buds whilst we wait for a healthier chocolate alternative. Since it won’t be available until next year, we will have to continue doing the odd workout to justify the calories… but if it isn’t totally worth it then we’re not sure what is!
