VitHit Lean and Green

Most of the vitamin ‘healthy’ drinks are either packed full of sugar to make them palatable or have no added sugar and it’s like drinking dirty dish water. Enter VitHit. 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…

Rebel Kitchen Mylks Chocolate & Banana

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…

Luscombe Madagascan Vanilla Soda

Luscombe Drinks are a little UK company down in Devon who kindly sent me their Madagascan Vanilla Soda* to try.

The vanilla was a…

Heston from Waitrose Cherry Bakewell Vodka

Following on from my review of the deliciously out there Heston Cherry Bakewell Hot Cross Buns, the ever fabulous Waitrose contacted me and offered to send their Heston Cherry Bakewell Vodka * to try. As you can imagine I was most excited and very thankful for their offer. This bottle is 70cl, 40% vol and costs £24.50. There are recommendations on mixing this to make a Cherry Bakewell Float or Ice Cream but frankly I’m opting for the alternative, straight from the fridge. A gorgeous deep red, it doesn’t smell of anything in particular but you get a sense of sticky…

Woking Food & Drink Festival 2015

It’s that time of year again. Woking Food & Drink Festival was back for another year and was bigger than ever. Stretching over 3 days, there was an abundance of food and drink stalls, book signings, masterclasses at Tante Marie, BBQ Demonstrations, and live cookery demos from the well known Daniel Britten and Monica Galetti, to the chefs from restaurants around Surrey.  For me Sunday is where it was at. Why? John Whaite of course! I am a humongous Bake Off fan, like super fan, into the fact I am devastated I am going to miss the finale this year (it is…
