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.

Caramel M&M’s Are Finally a Thing!

First there were the Candy Corn M&M’s, then the Minty ones and the slightly bizarre Strawberry Nut. I know I said I wasn’t going to partake in anymore M&M’s for a while, but things change and I am a sucker for the variations. The quest continues today with Caramel M&M’s  Whilst perusing American Fizz, I don’t know why I kid myself and even look thinking I won’t buy anything, but anyway there I was looking for something new and exciting and among other things I purchased, I spied this ‘share’ size bag of M&M’s.  After much anticipation these were released in America in…
