Vanta hot sauce from Chilli Olly via The Sauce Shed

Ello! How’s it going? Rhetorical perhaps as we’re not actually having a conversation right now… Or are we? Feel free to tell me how you are in the comments! Anyway, today I’m telling ye about Vanta sauce from Chilli Olly, kindly sent to me by The Sauce Shed.

Firstly from appearances this is a very delightful bottle and it warms my emo heart with the pure black and white appearance of the bottle and branding. Could easily whack the design on a shirt and sell a few I reckon. Kinda like a band name or something!

Aloha 65 & London Grace #beachathomebox

Happy lockdown, guys, gals and everyone else! I’m reviewing the #beachathomebox today featuring a booze juice called Aloha 65 and a nail varnish from London Grace; I have to pop this paragraph in here as part of my agreement with Hype Experiences, the experience manager providing me with the products:

“Thank you @hype_experiences_london for arranging this media delivery. If you are a content creator, I recommend joining their community to review products! More info here https://hypeexperiences.com/about-for-reviewers

Full disclosure: this is my first experience with Hype and I paid £2 to receive and review the products! First onto the bottle of Aloha 65 which initially drew me to the listing to review…the branding is super pretty and, as a gal who enjoys a bit of retro shizzle and simple design, I was pretty much sold on this product visually straight away. I really like the look of the bottle and the website; bright, colourful and tropical! Seems like my sort of beverage! The flavours mentioned on the label are pineapple, ginger, chilli and lemon which sounds already like something I’d mix up into a drink. Lovely stuff, promising.

Schwartz – Fajita Seasoning

Who likes alliteration?! Meeeee! Okay well maybe not as much as that, but it’s February and I’m going to be chatting to you about some Fajita Seasoning made by Schwartz….I’m therefore declaring it Fajita February!

I want to add a little note here to say that Schwartz have sent me this fajita seasoning for review, but all views are my own. I’m giving my honest opinion as always so let’s see whether this little jar of sprinkles tickled my tastebuds or not.

International Cheese Awards 2019 – Nantwich, UK

Six weeks ago, if you’d asked me to describe my “happy place,” I would have talked about my wedding day. Now that I’ve experienced the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch, it’s a little too close to call.

If you don’t like cheese, this is where you stop reading (there are plenty of other Fork My Piehole posts that will work for you instead so check those out).

Picture yourself in a white room draped with cloths, grapes, figs, you’re handed some Prosecco, and most importantly there’s more cheese than you could ever eat. Are you in heaven? No, you’re at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch. And yes, this is an event that already happened, but in just two short weeks the real deal is coming to a field near you if you live in Nantwich: the International Cheese & Dairy Awards 2019, and guess who’s been invited to be a part of the judging panel.

AnySharp Twist, Knife Sharpener

Howdy hi fellow forkers! Fortunately my wit couldn’t be any sharper…but this isn’t about my delicious mind-stash of puns today. No, let’s talk KNIVES.

We’ve got maybe one proper knife and most of the rest came with a knife block we got….well…. I can’t remember how long ago! I was approached to review a knife sharpener and I thought I could actually do with one of those to sort out our ageing collection of blades. Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaades. So I was kindly sent this knife sharpener, the AnySharp Twist, to take a peek at!
