Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Kettle Chips

Brand: Kettle Cost: £0.90 Found at: Sainsbury’s   Being ladies of great refinement and taste, cruelly underfinanced for the lavish lifestyle to which we wish we could become accustomed, several female classmates and I took decided to visit Pollok house for the weekend to bask in a state of refinement. The house itself is a... Continue Reading →

Lightly Salted Vegetable Chips

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £1.00 Found at: Morrison’s Every day, I try to take a little time out to be grateful for having been born in the era of hipster nonsense.

Salty Cracker Chocolate

Brand: Marabou Cost: 10.95KR Found at: Coop   This chocolate bar has tiny little Tuc crackers in it. Not cracker crumbs or crunchy cracker fragments, but whole, miniature Tuc crackers.
