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 →

Kinako and Black Sesame Milk Latte

Brand: Nittoh Found at: Bokkusu   For today’s first world problem: I miss drinks that come in sachets. Yes, in the midst of a global pandemic in which hospitals are overrun, jobs are disappearing, and everyone is more alone than ever, I am still able to find something banal to whine about. You’re welcome world.... Continue Reading →

Power to the Purple

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco   This tastes suspiciously like a cocktail. So suspiciously, that I actually checked the label to make sure that I had not inadvertently signed myself up for a boozy lunch. But I’ve always been a lover of a mocktail: from a virgin piña colada to a Sherly Temple,... Continue Reading →

Kagoshima Chirancha

Brand: Satshumarché Found at: Bokkusu   Is a tea bag a snack? Debatable. Do I brew tea like it's free? Oh, most definitely. So today, I’ve decided to post about tea, as a blatant affront to all the excellent tea blogs out there who do a much better job and describing tea than I do.... Continue Reading →

Beetroot and Turmeric Wrap with Ginger Slaw

Brand: Sainsbury’s On the Go Cost: £3 Found at: Sainsbury’s   This is one of those snacks that feels like it was created by a marketing team with a dartboard of buzzwords. It’s got pickles, it’s got root vegetables, it’s got turmeric – it’s got so many healthy things that you cannot call yourself health... Continue Reading →

Super Smoothie Cacao & Cherry

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco I'm low-key shook. Maybe it's because I'm a grumpy old curmudgeon who is suspicious of everything, but I was certain that this would disappoint. Anything healthy that even implies chocolate and I am out. It's either not healthy or not chocolate and either way, I'm not buying it.... Continue Reading →

KEX

Brand: Cloetta Cost: 7.95KR Found at: Coop   The Swedish are very Kex positive. And Kex is very Swedish positive.   This chocolate bar is absolutely a Swedish institution. Launched in 1921, it’s like a deconstructed Kit-Kat bar: a crisp chocolate wafer covered in smooth milk chocolate. And yet, it's deeply associated with sports –... Continue Reading →

Passionfruit

Cost: 6.95KR Found at: Coop I’d heard about passionfruit before. In fact, I’d assumed that I’d eaten it before. It is the kind of thing you hear about – the kind of thing which other things are flavored as: passionfruit gum, passionfruit ice cream, 2-in-1 passionfruit hair shampoo and revitalizer. It seemed unlikely that I... Continue Reading →
