Foodie parcels update!

Here’s a wee round-up of some foodie parcels I’ve recently received in the post…I really should have posted some of these earlier but with the school holidays and all I’m afraid I’ve fallen behind a little…..bad blogger!


Chika’s sent me some of their premium snacks to try. The smoked almonds were my favourite – they are very moreish! The plantain and gluten free chickpea crisps were very nice too – different but in a good way. They are lower in fat than normal crisps and contain no artificial additives, so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating them! You can read more about Chika’s on their website.


It was a lovely unexpected surprise when the postman delivered a big box of VitaCoco natural coconut water – it arrived on a very warm and humid day (the day of the Wimbledon semi-final!) so it was very much appreciated. It was very refreshing straight from the fridge. My only regret? Not leaving any for the cocktail recipes I saw online using coconut water…rookie mistake! You can find VictaCoco in most supermarkets.


Ryland Peters & Small very kindly sent me a couple of books to review – Naked cakes by Hannah Miles and The salad bowl by Nicola Graimes. I already own a few books published by Ryland Peters & small and their books are always visually stunning. I’ll be trying some recipes from both of these books soon so watch this space…

  1. I am a foodie person. I love to eat new and different dishes. I traveled a lot and tasted many dishes normally people don’t even know about. When I visited Africa I ate Chika’s plantain crisps a lot. I bought many packets of this.
