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 →

Rhubarb and Custards

Brand: Morrison’s Cost: £ 0.70 Brand: Morrison’s   This is a quality old lady purse candy. So much so, that it feels wrong just having the box sitting on my desk. It belongs in a carpetbag slung over a walker belonging to a white-haired Southern lady in a pillbox hat and gloves. The kind of... Continue Reading →

Veggie Jerky

Brand: Kings Cost: £2.50 Found at: Morrison's   I don’t hate this at all. Looks like jerky, tastes like jerky – I’d eat this again. I will eat this again.

Anything that will help get you through a pandemic or a hurricane has been whisked away... Continue Reading →

Keema Lamb Samosa Stars

Brand: Morrisons Cost: £2 Found at: Morrisons   Years ago, I somehow got a hold of a free audiobook copy of Ken Albala’s “Great Courses” lectures on the history of food. (Its long and will make you crave food wherever you go, but I recommend it.) I spent many a long commute thinking about Indian... Continue Reading →

Nut Butter Balls

Brand: Deliciously Ella Cost: £1.80 Found at: Morrisons   This snack is offensive. I am offended by this snack.   It is such a flagrant waste of money. Worse still, it’s genuinely unappetizing. It’s a luxury tax on health nuts, and while I love me a tax on the wealthy, this blatant highway robbery makes... Continue Reading →

Belgian Chocolate Dipped Chewy Florentines

Brand: Morrisons Cost: £2 Found at: Morrison's   In the flurry of holiday fervor and election drama, I decided to splash out on a holiday treat that simultaneously projects my liberal sensibilities. And what better option than a Florentine? This collection of nuts held together by caramel, and dipped in chocolate is truly a Brexiter’s... Continue Reading →
