Welcome to my October Foodie Review. As usual I’ve been busy eating and trying out some new products along the way. As it’s half term and quite a busy time I’ve chosen just three to showcase this month.
Cooks & Co Sweety Drop Red Peppers
I’ve been buying Cooks & Co products for quite a while and am a big fan of their roasted red Peppers but this month I have also tried their Sweety Drop Red Peppers. These are small tear drop shaped peppers. They are a little bit crunchy with a sweet and sour flavour. I’ve tried them cold in a salad and also baked in a casserole and both ways worked. If you’re looking for an easy way to bring a bit of colour and flavour to a salad then they are a great choice.
They are £2.49 for 235g from Cooks & Co and most supermarkets.
Monty Bojangles Milky Mischief Cocoa Dusted Truffles
Who can say no to a chocolate truffle? Unfortunately none of my family and so these Monty Bojangles Milky Mischief Cocoa Dusted Truffles disappeared far too quickly! They are not as bitter as some truffles and my husband even declared them to be the best truffles he’d ever eaten! I have to say I loved the whimsical pictures on the packaging too. Not surprisingly both the chocolates and the packaging have won awards. I’d love some more of these for Christmas if anyone is reading!
A 200g box of these chocolates costs £4.00 and can be bought online or from most supermarkets.
Love Food Box
This month I tried my first Love Food box. It arrived perfectly through the letterbox containing all the ingredients I needed (except the egg and butter) to make my very own S’mores Brookies – delicious chocolate cookies sandwiched with grilled marshmallow and melted chocolate. The concept is that every month you receive all the ingredients you need to bake something yourself. Because everything is already weighed out it cuts down on preparation time but you still get the fun of baking. And if you enjoy baking but don’t bake very often then it reduces waste as you don’t buy lots of ingredients that go out of date before you have time to use them. I normally make slightly healthier treats for my family so my husband especially was delighted with my first box and the children were pretty happy too!
You can buy an individual box for £8.99 or sign up for three months for £26. There is also an introductory discount to get your first box for £4.50 with the code FIRSTBOX.
That’s all for this month but do let me know if you’ve also tried any of these products and what you think of them.
