Category Irish Snacks

What springs to mind when you hear ‘Irish snacks’? Devious pleasures in a dark corner of a café or simply nothing at all? Meat and two veg with icing sugar atop, perhaps.

It’s true that Irish sweets and stop-gaps are a class of creatures relatively unknown to the wider world. But, make no mistake, because oh we got them! America may be the true land of honey, but you’d be surprised how sweet its Atlantic neighbor can be, if rubbed the right way.

Big bars of candy banned most elsewhere on the planet, on account of their dangerously high levels of deliciousness. Slabs of caramelized empty calories that you whip out from under your desk when the boss isn’t looking. Literally heart-stopping slabs of chocolate and molasses. These are just some examples of top fill-the-gap Irish dishes.
