Captain Morgans: Original Spiced Gold Review

Hello and welcome to my first Rum review, I have recently discovered a love for all things Rum and Captain Morgans Original Spiced Gold was the first Rum I ever tried so it only seems fair that it be the first Rum that we talk about.

I payed 12 British Pounds for 700 ml of this Rum.

Before jumping into the review, a little on Captain Morgan, Captain Henry Morgan was a real pirate, according to the Captain Morgans website he was born in Wales in 1635, was given the title of Captain at the age of 27, he had been knighted in 1673 and died in 1685, of course this is just a few parts of his history but more can be read on the page of the Captain Morgans website.

Although If you want a more in depth look at the captains history I recommend this page on britannica.com

I love the bottle design of Captain Morgans from what I can tell all of the different types come in the same bottle but I specifically like the art work here and the texture of the label, to me the label has an old feel to it almost like a scroll or a piece of parchment, the bottle design is also quite creative,  the captains ship on the back of the bottle is one of my favorite details.

The back of the bottle does not have too much information on it but one thing that does stand out is a small segment which reads “Buccaneer Henry Morgan, traveled across the Caribbean and became governor of Jamaica, enjoy the Captain Morgan original spiced gold that shares his spirit“.

Instantly upon pouring some rum into your tumbler you are hit with the heavenly smell of Vanilla, the scent is very sweet giving off vibes of hot vanilla cookies baking in the oven.

The flavor of the rum is also quite sweet and gives off less of a taste than the smell suggests, you can definitely taste the flavor of vanilla more than alcohol but the flavor as a whole is quite weak but still enjoyable.

I personally believe that Captain Morgans Spiced rum is best mixed with a beverage, in this example I used cola and will probably use cola for any future rum reviews, it is nice neat but the cola and the rum go extremely well together so I would definitely say that this is best used as a rum to mix with other drinks but apart from that 12 pounds is a really good price for what can be considered an enjoyable rum when you are on a tighter budget.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Review

 

 

choc_chip_3.1oz

When I first saw these I was amazed at how cheap they were the person I bought these from asked for only 3 dollars which is the equivalent of about 2 pounds.

I am a big fan of Cookie Dough so I could not resist picking some of these up.

Nutrition Facts

DSC_0065

One box of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites contains 2 servings of candy.

Each serving contains

200 Calories

10g of Fat

7g of Saturated Fat

0g of Trans Fat

5mg of Cholesterol

65mg of Sodium

27g of Carbohydrates

0g of Dietary Fibre

20g of Sugar

and 1g of Protein

It does not matter how much you love cookie dough, I’m sure everyone will agree that it is not most nutritional thing you can eat so eating these in small doses is highly recommended.

The company that makes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites has pasted that the product does not contain egg all over the box, I guess this just to show that this particular candy is safe for vegans too eat as in the list of ingredients they do say that they use milk powder instead of milk from an animal.

The product its self is an assortment of cookie dough balls covered in milk chocolate they come on various sizes and shapes which is an aspect that I like because it does give me a bit more faith in the product because it makes it seem that it was not just simply made by machines in a factory.

The milk chocolate is quite flavourless, it does have a very slight chocolate taste to it but in general it honestly just tastes like plastic.

The cookie dough tastes pretty good but again it does not have much flavour too it, although I will admit that the flavour is much stronger and of better quality compared to the chocolate. The cookie dough has a mixture of salty and sweet flavours and the texture of the cookie dough is quite dry.

My biggest issue with the product is that it’s called Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites and as much as there was cookie dough in bite size pieces I failed to find any chocolate chips, I suppose you could argue that the chocolate covering the cookie dough is the chocolate chip but if that is the case surely the product should be named Milk Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites.

This product was really disappointing it lacked in both chocolate chips and flavour and even though they are quite cheap to purchase I recommend staying away from these. 3/10

Thank you for reading my review of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
