Pea Pops Chickpea Crisps *

January 2022, it is quite remarkable that a new year has come around in a blink of an eye. After a little break over the festive period we are back with a new review of Pea Pops Chickpea Crisps. Other than a fabulous name and vibrant colourful packaging these fall quite nicely into Veganuary. Launched in 2020 Pea Pops are in their very nature popped and not fried. They too have 20% protein, are gluten free, high in fibre, vegan/vegetarian and are the winner of The Great Taste Award. Coming in 3 flavours, 2 vegan 1 vegetarian, these can be purchased…

Eating Out at Piccolino Virginia Water

Located on London Road, Virginia Water, behind the walls of the very plain white looking Piccolino building is a restaurant that boasts an open kitchen, wine and cocktail bar and a substantial alfresco terrace. Having never eaten there it was a real treat to go for lunch for none other than my birthday. We sat in the alfresco terrance which features a fully retractable roof and heaters to ensure the ultimate alfresco experience rain or shine. The shade of Liz Earle blue the chairs were more like a comfortable sofa, there’s no surprise you could spend hours there. Menus galore there…

Berczy Winter Cola Hard Seltzer *

Hands up if you are getting excited for Christmas! I think we can tell that I am given todays post and with it being only 1 month to go. Earlier this year Berczy hit the shelves with 3 flavours. Fast forward to the precipice of Christmas festivities and they have released a new winter version of Berczy Winter Cola. You may recall I previously reviewed the original flavours and was pleasantly surprised with how alcoholic sparkling water could be, well, nice. Aside from the new limited edition flavour they too have become carbon neutral! Well done! So what is Berczy?…

Hotel Chocolat Pecan Danish Selectors

The clocks have gone back, autumn is well and truly upon us and the new seasonal choccies are on the shelves. Today’s review is a truly autumnal comforting sweet treat with these Hotel Chocolat Pecan Danish Selectors. It can safely be said that Hotel Chocolat is firm fave on this blog. The flavours, varieties of choclate whether it be solid, filled or even liquid, it is not hard to find something to buy! These cup shaped selectors are my favourite style, they always seem to give a better ratio of filling. Each of these 6 cups is filled with maple,…

Salted Caramel Fudge Munchies

Cast your mind back 2 years to when Nestle gave us two (somewhat disappointing) new flavours of Munchies. Fast forward and these Salted Caramel Fudge Munchies have hit the shelves. It may be a flavour we have seen already flood the market and sail on through, but it is nice to see they haven’t gone for chocolate orange. Incase you aren’t au fait with the original Munchies they are square, filled with soft caramel and a small round biscuit in the middle, all of which is encased in a thick chocolate coating. These were originally in Morrisons but are now in…
