Scottish Raspberry Lollies

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £2 Found at: Morrison’s I bought these because they were all natural but then was displeased when they were extremely pulpy. Honestly, that’s on me. I really should have known better. Nevertheless, it seems like these popsicles are more natural then they really need to be. As far as I can tell,... Continue Reading →

Mini Dessert with Dark Chocolate

Brand: Deluxe Cost: 85p Found at: Lidl This is a fairly standard little cup of chocolate mousse. It’s rich and creamy and has a little bit of chocolate crumble at the bottom – honestly, what more could you ask for? But what sets this apart from all the other pudding cups in the dessert isle...

Sentouchi Lemon Pie

Brand: Furuta Seika Found at: Bokkusu My friend Mackenzie is a picky eater. This would usually be a problem for me. In the past, I have struggled to cultivate empathy for the food shy – my slightly Victorian upbringing has left me with the misguided impression that all of life’s problems can be solved with...

Raspberry Tarts

Brand: Morton’s Rolls Cost: £2 Found At: Morrison’s Even as an American, my pancreas has never had to work so hard. This is easily one of the sweetest things I have ever eaten in my life – sweeter than marshmallows and sugar cubes and Japanese tea sweets made of pressed sugar. Hands down, no question,...

Smoked Bacon and Cheese Pies

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £1.30 Found at: Morrison’s Salt, fat, and pastry. At various points in my young, female life, I’ve cut one or all of these things out of my life. Out of curiosity, boredom, self-righteousness, or good old-fashioned body dysmorphia, I have tried just about every elimination diet out there. I’ve been vegan, I’ve... Continue Reading →

Double Raspberry

Brand: Magnum Cost: £2 Found at: Morrison’s             There’s a heatwave in Glasgow, with temperatures hovering around 25°C (~80°F), and it’s like the pandemic has hit all over again. People are sheltering in their homes, air-conditioned grocery stores are crowded, and everyone looks slightly distressed.             Of course, not everyone is suffering from the unseasonable...

Baklava Assortment

Brand: Eridanous Cost: £1.50 Found at: Lidl             How have I been alive on this earth for almost three decades and never once had chocolate covered baklava? How did I stumble through my life before this moment, completely oblivious to how good life could be?             For those unfamiliar with my favorite desert, baklava is... Continue Reading →

Butter and Soy Sauce Crunchy Eringi Mushrooms

Brand: Sozai Found at: Bokkusu Oh no. I don’t even know where to start. These are horrific to the point that my brain cannot process the information that my mouth is giving me. Imagine butter popcorn that is also mushroom flavored. Now imagine that it is not only mushroom flavored, but artisanal mushroom flavored, with... Continue Reading →

Hand Finished Carrot Cake

Brand: Lidl Deluxe Cost: £1.49 Found at: Lidl             The more I learn about the Middle Ages in Europe, the more I realize that it was an absolutely lawless time in the history of food. Suddenly, you had all the spices coming in from the crusades with no sense of how best to use them.... Continue Reading →
