The Body Shop Banana Limited Edition Range

To say that I was excited when I read the email that The Body Shop had expanded their Banana range is a little bit of an understatement and there may have been a few excited squeals *don’t judge me*. Banana done well is one of my favourite smells. For me I want full on bananatastic knock your socks off, want to eat it kind of banana. The range has expanded from just haircare to now include Body Butter, Body Yoghurt and Shower Cream.  The packaging is cooky, fun and summery and all the products use community trade banana puree, and the…

Mr Kipling James’ Peaches & Cream Slices

What happens when a well know cake and treat company takes inspiration from an author that sent children’s imaginations into overdrive? A whole host of aptly themed treats that’s what. Yes Mr Kipling has taken inspiration from Roald Dahl and transformed some of it’s favourites with new and exciting flavours.  From George’s Marvellous Lemon & Raspberry Whirls, Enormous Croc’s Chocolate Mud Pies and The BFG’s Strawbunkle & Cream Fancies, to name a few, I had my eyes on one thing and one thing only, Mr Kipling James’ Peaches & Cream Slices. Why? It’s purely down to the peach! Some of these…

Well the very first was opened in Brighton with the aim to offer an authentic and accessible Indian dining…

Popcorn Shed Pecan Pie

The popcorn love affair continues….. We previously had the delicious but lacking in size Popcorn Shed Butterly Nuts, and this week we have Popcorn Shed Pecan Pie. No longer reserved for the pastry case, Popcorn Shed have taken a much loved sweet dessert and fused it with popcorn and I for one hope this tastes as good as it sounds.  Again this little 28g snack pack came from Ocado and was £1.50. Interestingly although there were only a few extra grams in this pack, visually there looked to be so much more than the Butterly Nuts version. The shade of…

Mallow & Marsh Peanut Marshmallow Bar

I have finally got my hands on the new Mallow & Marsh Peanut Marshmallow Bar. I have not seen even a smidge of advertising, and I just so happened to have stumbled across a random tweet about one of these and low and behold on my lunch break I spied it in Boots. It must have been fate.  I can’t tell you the last time I have had a Mallow & Marsh marshmallow and I am not even sure why, their Mint Choc ones are my favourite, which ironically seems to be the one bar I think they no longer do.…
