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. From what started as a family business has expanded from a small workshop to a factory but stuck with traditional artisan methods.  Each costs around £1.75 a pop, I have managed to get these on offer recently so were nearer the £1.00. Each 135g pot comes in a glass pot, sealed top and cardboard sleeve. Far better for the environment. I…

I confess I have had these sitting waiting for…

Currently in 5 not so generic flavours, these snacks are high in fibre, a good source of…

Luscombe Madagascan Vanilla Soda

Luscombe Drinks are a little UK company down in Devon who kindly sent me their Madagascan Vanilla Soda* to try. I have not come across Luscombe drinks before nor anyone who has put vanilla with soda, and I for one was excited to try something completely new and unique.  Twisting the cap open there was that hiss as the air escaped. There was a slight fizz and the smell of vanilla was instant upon pouring. Soda is naturally quite a dry drink but surprisingly this really wasn’t dry at all, and to a degree quenched my thirst. The vanilla was a…
