Wensleydale gets festive!

"Oh I do love a bit of Wensleydale" said Wallace  Santa! Morrisons has given this classic cheese a very festive makeover in the form of these three products:

New Applewood Nibbles

Dangerous - once you start you can't stop. I kept going to the fridge for a little graze again and again. Oh dear.... But on the plus side they're great if you're serving retro pineapple and cheese canapes and can't be bothered/don't have the time (!) to chop up pesky cubes of cheese.
£2.00, Asda

Applewood Nibbles Smoke Flavoured Cubes of Cheddar Cheese

Tesco Decorate Your Own Mini Snowman Doughnuts

TGI Stuck in the Chimney Burger

Nothing says Christmas like a massive burger (errr.....), and the first festive burger on the block this year is TGI Friday’s Stuck in the Chimney Stack burger. So, what does this burger behemoth include? A 7oz beef burger and Jack Daniel’s-glazed chargrilled chicken breast with caramelised onions, Jack Daniel’s sage and onion stuffing, Swiss cheese and rich Jack Daniel’s gravy. Yes, there’s a lot of JD in there. In fact, there’s just A LOT in there. But if Christmas isn’t the time for busted-belts and heartburn, I don’t know when is.

TGI Friday's Stuck in the Chimney Stack burger is a Christmas beast

Starbucks Snowball Muffin
The Red Cups aren't the only exciting addition to the Starbucks Christmas excitement... these chocolate muffins are filled with a smooth white chocolate filling, decorated with coconut.

Hurray! It's Sundae!

Tesco have recently launched these two new additions to their chilled pudding aisle:

Jumbo Mallow Teaser Sundae
This is a vanilla flavour mousse, malt flavour mousse and chocolate custard with whipped cream, sponge pieces, milk chocolate coated malt balls and mini marshmallows. Now that's why they're called 'jumbo'!

An Autumnal offering..

Jumbo Burning Toffee SundaeToasted mallow flavour mousse, dark chocolate custard and smoke flavour caramel sauce with ginger sponge pieces, topped with coated chilli honeycomb chips and butterscotch chips. I love the addition of chilli in this as it makes it somewhat different from heaps of other indulgent puds.

Walkers Beef & Onion... here to stay!

Back in September, Walkers launched the 'Bring It Back' competition which saw Walkers temporarily bring back 5 classic flavours. Fans were asked to vote for the flavour that they would like to have back as a permanent member of the Walkers family, and the result is....Beef & Onion!! Apparently Cheese & Chive was a close second place, followed by Lamb & Mint.

Costa Christmas Drinks 2015

While Starbucks went for that minimal, dare I say it, classy, Red Cup design, the Costa Christmas cups have gone the other way and everyone’s loving it. Because Christmas is about Santa hats, over-indulgence and all the bells and whistles, right?

Along with its festive cups – the robin and penguin join Santa, Snowman, and Elf – Costa are doing three ridiculously sexy sounding new hot drinks: Salted Caramel Cappuccino, Tiramisu Latte and Caramel Fudge Hot ChocolateThey join old favourites, the Gingerbread and Cream Latte, the White Hot Chocolate and the Black Forest Hot Chocolate.

Caramel Fudge Hot Chocolate is topped with a chocolate shimmer powder (that's new!) and a belgian chocolate lattice. Shimmer powder also dusts the top of the Salted Caramel Cappuccino. 

On the festive food menu at Costa this year are a Salted Caramel Brownie and a Billionaire's Tart  (see pictures) as well as an Orange & Cranberry Muffin, Sticky Toffee Mini Cake, White Chocolate & Passionfruit Snowball, Gingerbread Muffin and Cherry & Almond Log


If you don't have a sweet tooth, then check out their Pigs in Blankets Panini, featuring British pork and onion sausage with Beechwood smoked British bacon, herby stuffing and cranberry sauce on a sourdough ciabatta.

Christmas has officially arrived!

EAT Christmas Menu

Putting that frankly unhelpful World Health Organisation news to one side for a moment, feast your eyes on Eat’s glorious new Christmas menu. As of yesterday, you can treat yourself to a seasonal tub of pigs in blankets for lunch. With a dollop of cranberry sauce on the side of course. Or, for an extra special start to your day, there’s the Pigs in Blanket Breakfast Butty of dreams. Okay that *might* not be the official name. The tiny sausages wrapped in bacon duvets (made from 100 per cent British pork) are making their debut on the sandwich chain’s Christmas menu this year. They join fellow newcomer, the Turkey, Bacon and Stuffing Pie, which is made up of a delicious, creamy filling of sautéed onion and leek, thyme and sage, chunks of British turkey and smoked bacon, chestnut and cranberry stuffing, and served with a side of creamy mash and gravy. You can then wash it all down with the Spicy Brownie Hot Chocolate.
