The Mistry Barbecue

Put your hands up if you love a barbecue. If your hand is not up, why not!! It is a fact that we love a barbecue. It has indeed been known for our family to have 4 in one week – Yes that probably constitutes borderline barbecue addicts. Last Saturday proved to be the perfect day for The Mistry barbecue. This annual shindig proves to be a feast full of food, and this year was just that.  For starters – From piled high bruschetta, to pretzels, nachos and crudités to dunk in an array of homemade dips – tzatziki, guacomole, aubergine and coriander, and a…

Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Crunch

It was a hallelujah moment when Krispy Kreme introduced peanut butter to their doughnuts, and in actual fact it was this along with their Lotus Biscoff doughnut that made me fall a little in love with Krispy Kreme. Like others I mourned the loss of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut shell, but fear not, with 76% of the vote it’s back, and it has bought a new doughnutty friend. Say hello to Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Crunch doughnut!  Krispy Kreme have taken their classic ring doughnut and have coated it in sticky Reese’s peanut butter icing, and topped it with chocolate…

The Grown Up Chocolate Company Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy

  The first I had heard of The Grown Up Chocolate Company was when the super-dooper, lovely bubbly Cupcake Snack Warrior over at Reaching for Refreshment sent me one within a stash of goodies. These bars are not for little monsters and luckily I don’t come under that category! So what do I have here? The Grown Up Chocolate Company Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy Bar* is what I have. I challenge someone to say that 10 times over! First off I am a big fan for UK made products, and I am pleased too see these bars are ‘handmade with love…

Bloggers Food Festival

Thanks to The Bloggers Hub, Monday marked my first Food Festival for Bloggers, and what a fab event it was. Centred in London at Kanaloa, there was plenty on offer, and I didn’t get lost trying to find it! The range of Brands was diverse from naturally fruity baked nibbles courtesy of Urban Fruit (baked is definitely better), to deliciously squishy marshmallows by Miss Millars (the blackberry crumble OMG), and delectable macaroons from L’Orchidee (hello watermelon heaven). Breakfast has also been covered by Cereal Lovers 100% natural granola and Stoats Porridge bars. It was great to see some Gluten Free options, and Thanks for Frank’s do…

Waitrose Seriously Fruity Apple Strudel

My go-to pudding is always an apple crumble or pie, I just cannot resist. Strudels are rare and far between in the supermarkets and I was pleasantly surprised to see Waitrose Seriously Fruity Apple Strudel. Their strudel consists of filo pastry filled with lightly spiced apples and raisins, topped with almonds and dusted to finish. I picked this up at the weekend for £4.29, it is not the cheapest of dessert choices but the seriously apply contents won me over. Serving 4 and with a 1/4 serving being 219 kcal and 1g sat fat, it is pretty good for a pastry pud.  After…
