Not even a year old and yet the Nespresso machine in our house is still Daddio’s favourite gadget, and he always has his eye on the Nespresso capsules when shopping. In Sainsbury’s we spied these Café Royal Caramel capsules that are compatable with Nespresso, and is the first flavoured compatible capsule we have seen, thus decided to take the plunge.  Presented in a compact cardboard box, these Café Royal Caramel capsules were £3 for 10, not too bad a price for a flavoured number. Daddio opted for a longer drink of 2 capsules and hot frothy milk albeit our Nespresso Aeroccino appears to no…

It’s a long weekend Hurrah!!! We all know I am all for supporting British made products and today’s review is exactly that. The lovely Hooper’s offered to send me some of their ‘true British’ refreshments to review and before I knew it 12 bottles of their Alcoholic Brews arrived. So who are Hooper’s I hear you ask?

The VitHit mission is to make drinks that taste as good or better than their sugary counterparts, all the while adding as much goodness without compromising on taste. Now that is quite the mission.  Coming in 5 varieties, today’s review is all about the VitHit Lean and Green. There is some sugar content to this VitHit but at 35 calories and 6.5 grams of sugar this really is a drop in…

I first spied Rebel Kitchen Mylks at the Food Blogger Event last year and really liked the whole concept. It wasn’t until I was shopping in Waitrose last week that I came across Rebel Kitchen Mylks for kids on offer for 2 for £4, and thought I would give them a whirl, primarily because they had Banana (why is it so hard to find banana these days?)! Rebel Kitchen Mylks are dairy free, contain no refined sugar, additives or preservatives and are suitable for vegans, those following a paleo diet, and are gluten, nut and soy free. So in a nutshell pretty much…
