Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin

Happy Gin WednesdayGin has certainly exploded and you can pretty much buy it anywhere, and in any flavour. I’m relatively late to the gin party and only really started enjoying it a couple of years back. Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin is a newbie, and I first spotted it in Asda back in February. Originally this was nestled amongst the Valentine’s display but does not appear to be limited edition. This was exclusive to Asda, both in-stores and online, however you can now find this online on other drink outlets. RRP is £25.00 but is usually on offer in Asda for…

Pastoret Banana and Biscuit Organic Yoghurt

Today it is all about the humble yoghurt. Pastoret Banana and Biscuit Organic Yoghurt to be precise. This is a new brand for me and one that seems to have just popped up into the fresh aisle of the supermarket. From what started as a family business has expanded from a small workshop to a factory but stuck with traditional artisan methods.  Each costs around £1.75 a pop, I have managed to get these on offer recently so were nearer the £1.00. Each 135g pot comes in a glass pot, sealed top and cardboard sleeve. Far better for the environment. I…

Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams

If you haven’t seen the Tesco Rhubarb and Custard Creams where have you been? These sneaked on the shelves with no warning, but give a glimpse of summer flavours to come.  My mum is a self proclaimed Custard Cream Queen. What gives her this title? She eats an abundance every week and has pretty much worked her way around the Custard Cream scene in search of the tip top cream. Which FYI she has voted Tesco as the top dog here.  It was a priority mission that these were obtained asap and we picked these up a few weeks ago…

Limited Edition Strawberry Jaffa Cakes

The Strawberry Jaffa Cakes are back. Yes they first made their appearance a year or so ago and have come back around. Why I am not too sure. Perhaps it is down to summer fast approaching and these certainly seem like more of a summer flavour.  I am quite traditional when it comes to Jaffa Cakes and I don’t think I tried the Strawberry version first time around. That being said I thought heck why not give them ago. After all strawberry and chocolate is a grand combination.  Keeping the soft cake base and dark chocolate topping, instead of a…

Nestle KitKat Ruby Chocolate

Ruby chocolate has been gathering pace and Nestle have certainly helped to bring this a little more mainstream with their KitKat Ruby Chocolate.  Originally only available in Tesco, these bars have gravitated and I found this single bar in Sainsbury’s for 60p. You may have even spied the Easter Egg, which was tempting!  What makes ruby chocolate so special? A number of years ago cocoa experts discovered components of certain cocoa beans could produce a chocolate with an exceptional flavour and colour. This gorgeously coloured Ruby cocoa bean offers a totally new taste experience, and I couldn’t be more excited…
