Retro Corn Cherry Pips Popcorn

Popcorn is one of my favourite snacks and I am always game for trying something new. I stumbled across Retro Corn Cherry Pips Popcorn whilst seeing what was new on Ocado. Retro Corn has basically taken popcorn and added the flavours of childhood sweets. I do raise an eyebrow as to whether crushed sweets should marry with popcorn, but hey lets give it a try. Retro Corn has an array of flavours on offer from Rhubarb and Custard to Cola Cube, Strawberries and Cream and Cherry Pips, and are all made using traditional British sweets. Description – With a delicate…

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…

That being said Ocado has come to the rescue and today it is all about Popcorn Shed Butterly Nuts.  Normally these come in 80g boxes…

Popcorn, I love the stuff, so when I finally managed to get hold of the new Chocolate Propercorn I was pretty excited about it. Propercorn have been pretty solid when it comes to their flavour, quality and tastiness so the hopes are high for their new Chocolate popcorn.  Nailing a chocolate popcorn that meets what us chocoholics want is not an easy thing and apparently it has taken Propercorn years to do just that. If you are wondering why you haven’t come across this yet it turns out Chocolate Propercorn is currently only in Waitrose and on Ocado. I got…

Dona Rita Brazilian Pão de Queijo Cheese Balls

There’s a new cheesy ball in town and it comes in the form of Dona Rita Brazilian Cheese Balls*. Dona Rita are a completely new brand to me as is Pão de Queijo, but if something promises to be a cheesy delight then I am all in.  Traditionally known as Pão de Queijo, these balls are made using the freshest of ingredients including cassava flour and cheese, and is a staple snack at most cafes, restaurants and dinner parties across Brazil. Thanks to this family run business, who have perfected their secret recipe, we can now bake these cheesy balls…
