Dream Roll Cake (Drömrulltårta)

Brand: ICA Found at: ICA For years, Europeans have been hassling me about Marshmallow Fluff. “You Americans and your sweet things,” they say, in a patronizing tone. “You put marshmallows on your sandwiches.” First of all: don’t knock it till you try it. Marshmallow Fluff has been a friend indeed at many points in my... Continue Reading →

Fruit-Tella

Brand: Perfetti Cost: 60p Found at: Tesco   Everyone knows that the pink starbursts are the best, the yellow starbursts are the worst, and the rest are just filler between the two. Fruit-Tella is only the pink starbursts. It is the Justified, to Starburst’s Celebrity – all Justin Timberlake, with none of the rest of... Continue Reading →

Bolt from the Blue

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 (with £3 lunch deal) Found at: Tesco This is a tasty juice! Vaguely tropical, vaguely familiar and bright blue. (I'm a child of the Heinz EZ Squirt era - brightly, artificially colored food is a guaranteed way to get my money.) It’s sweet and tasty, but contrary to Innocent's health-conscious image,...

Aero

Brand: Nestle Cost: £0.70 Found at: Tesco   Yuck. I mean, just yuck.   It may seem like I’ve got an ax to grind with Nestle.

Moose Pâté

Brand: Hissa Found at: Karlstad Christmas Market   I have no problem with eating moose. Moose are grumpy animals who will trample you as soon as look at you. Not only will a moose crush you to death if you hit one with your car, but I firmly believe that they take great pleasure in... Continue Reading →

Smokey BBQ Crunchy Roasted Crickets

Brand: Eat Grub Cost: £1 Found at: Sainsbury’s   I was so confident when I bought these cricket snacks. I walked out of the Sainsbury’s with a self-righteous strut. “I’m going to eat these crickets,” I bragged to myself, as well I should. For DECADES I’ve been telling everyone that: a. we should eat bugs... Continue Reading →

Caramel Log

Brand: Tunnock’s Found at: Iceland Cost: £1 for 6   Even the most hardened Anglophile has to admit that the UK is far from perfect. The trains never seem to run on time, the government offices never seem to be reliable or consistent, and I’ve never seen anyone litter quite like the British. That being... Continue Reading →

Roasted Chicken and Thyme Chips

Brand: Sensations Cost: 90p Found at: Morrisons   In the years I spent out and about in the adult world, I had forgotten just how social school-life is. I had happily gotten myself happily ensconced in the comfortably formal work relationships and increasingly distant friend relationships that define millennial early adulthood. And, being somewhat introverted... Continue Reading →
