Savoury biscotti, what is this madness I hear you cry! You really did read that right, the Great British Biscotti Co. have gone beyond the normal realms of biscotti territory to give us not one, not two but SIX savoury flavours.  My lovely loyal readers will already know I reviewed the sweet variety on offer by Great British Biscotti Co. and absolutely adored them (review here).

I hold my hands up that when it comes to soup I am a fussy person and very particular. I do not even entertain the thought of soup that is drinkable. A soup for me has to be thick and chunky with actual visible food in it. Today’s review is said soup and is all about the Limited Edition Glorious! Spanish Chicken Paella Soup.

A while back the delightful people at Propercorn kindly sent me a treasure chest of popcorn with all their flavours to try. An actual treasure chest, seriously my excitement for this was sky high! Inside contained not just 1 packet of each but 4 packets of each of the 6 flavours. I previously reviewed their newest addition – Smooth Peanut and Almond, which was just scrummy, and now I have munched through the rest and here is the verdict.  Lightly Sea Salted* Slightly a nondescript flavour. It is as it suggests lightly salted but I did find that some handfuls were complete…
