Last weekend I found myself with pal Goldy Loxx/Anna in Soho, looking for something to put in our mouths. That sounds weird. BUT IT WAS TRUE. We weren’t sure what we fancied and I had walked past HipChips several times in the past and assumed it would be long gone as a pop up but here it was, still serving. So we went in.
Do you like poodles? Yes? Everyone does. And what rhymes with poodle…..that’s right…NOODLE!
After such a smooth intro, how can you not read on? I want to tell you a little about Mr Lee’s Noodle offerings – a gourmet, gluten free, rice noodle cup that’s ready and waiting for you.
Salutations! Apparently 1 in 3 people skip breakfast, and that may well be true as I am guilty of being one of the skippees. Getting up in the morning is always tougher especially when the mornings are getting darker and we really REALLY don’t want to leave our warm duvet nests.
So, as a quick alternative to the standard bowl, we’ve been checking out the offering of Belvita Breakfast Biscuits to let you know about two (out of eight possible) flavours from the range.
The Popcorn Shed are a family owned, home-grown company who have the aim of becoming the number one gourmet popcorn brand choice in the world! These guys mean seriously delicious business!
We’re giving two flavours a crack to see what they’re made of – the Pecan Pie and Chocolate.
Let me introduce you to the beautiful pink liquid in the picture above. This is Cuppanut’s coconut and cranberry infusion tea. Pretty pink drinks tend to be full of sugar and additives but this one is all natural and actually good for you!
Today we’re trying dried fruit snack packs from La ChiVa! – ‘Columbia’s second favourite export’
These are a healthy freeze dried fruit snack which you can eat on their own, sprinkle on your cereal or yogurt or possibly do other things I haven’t yet considered! I opted to try them on their own as ‘fruity crisps’ – and also because I had no cereal or yogurt in the cupboards.
We visited the Speciality & Fine Food Fair 2016 and stumbled upon Naturelly. These guys and gals make a jelly juice snack aimed at kids aged 2+ and made from real fruit juice and natural gelatine-free jelly with no added sugar. The point is to have something for kids to have as a snack which is good for them and a bit different – not a snack and not a drink, a delicious in-between!
This appealed to me because although I am a 20-something *cough cough* I don’t think you ever really lose the love for a bit of jelly, especially when it’s in a squeezy packet. So I gave it a crack (and the fella on the Naturelly stand was also a jelly fan so there was no shaming for me going for a snack aimed at toddlers and over).
Salutations, welcome to the Timberyard! And no, there aren’t a lot of lumberjacks here, it’s a ruddy coffee shop thing! Ho ho ho…
This place is another that I’d tried to get in once before and failed because it was too gosh darned popular! A mac user heaven, the computers nearly outnumber the people in here. It makes me envious but not because I’m not an Apple girl.
