Choc Chick Quinoa Pops and Plantain Bites

Fresh on the food scene these Choc Chick Quinoa Pops and Plantain Bites only launched on the 13th October. Ethically sourced natural raw cocoa, Choc Chick have chosen the single origin Nacional Arriba Fino de Aroma bean, as it’s renowned for its floral and fruity notes. They also work with cooperatives of family farms that have been growing cacao for generations and are proud to shout out that they can trace each batch from the plantation to fermentation, drying and production. Personally Choc Chick is completely new to me. Looking at their website they actually do quite the range of products from these Quinoa Pops and Plantain…

Clonakilty Ispini Sausages & Clonakilty Rashers

When I was asked if I wanted to try the new Clonakilty Ispini Sausages I never would have thought all of these goodies would arrive. Talk about meaty delivery! If like me you though Clonakilty* were just about their famous black pudding, you may be surprised to see how much they have branched out. From their traditional black pudding to white pudding, bacon rashers, bacon joints and sausages, the newest are these Clonakilty Ispini Sausages. Made using 100% Irish Pork they are apparently the perfect allrounder. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, BBQ, these sausages have got you covered. The rashers do come in four…

M&S Milk and Cookies Granola

The M&S Christmas range is in full swing and not too long ago I reviewed their Red Velvet Curd. Sadly I wasn’t bowled over by it (read my review here if you missed it) so I am hoping the M&S Milk and Cookies Granola can help put us back on track.  Coming in at £2.50 a 500g box I was most surprised to see it that cheap. Most granolas are averaging around £4.00 so kudos to M&S for keeping this far more affordable and fair. So what can we expect from this granola? Well the description is – ‘Dark chocolate oat…

World Porridge Day: Porridge with a Savoury Twist?

Happy World Porridge Day! With the cold weather drawing in there are days when all you need is a bowl of something that warms you to the very core. I love porridge but when it comes to eating it I reach for the plain and simple, and on the odd occasion a drizzle of maple syrup or jam may get swirled on in there. Living on the edge there I know!  Oats are not only good for the soul they are for the body too. They are an excellent source of fibre, protein, vitamins and have a low GI index…

Oppo Madagascan Vanilla Cheesecake

If someone said to you here’s a cheesecake that isn’t as sinful as a traditional slice of cheesecake but still tastes as good, you would probably think they were off their rocker. Well Oppo have potentially given us just that. Coming in a trio of flavours today’s review is the Oppo Madagascan Vanilla Cheesecake. If you haven’t come across Oppo then they were the ones that made sugar free ice cream taste darn good. FYI Mint Choc Chip is my fave. However no longer is this their only guilt free treat, the new range of chilled cheesecakes has been 2 years…
