What’s new in the kitchen this week:
Vandotsch Speculaas Spice Mix – from £3.99
Why cook/bake boring cinnamon when you can use some direct from Sri Lanka and infused with cloves, ginger and six other spices. I’ve been using it in baking and sprinkling some on the kids’ porridge at breakfast.
Robinson’s Fruit Shoot Jam – £1.59
If you have kids you are familiar with Fruit Shoots, but did you know they also make squeezy jam? They are 45% fruit and made with 30% less sugar than your average jam/marmalade. They come in three flavours:
Apple & Blackcurrant
Strawberry & Summer Fruits
Use them on toast, on dessert or swirled through yoghurt and when the bottle is empty, they make a great water squirter. Look for them in the supermarket jam aisle.
Cadbury’s Eclairs Velvets – £1.99
These chocolates are more of a grown up treat and as I’m lactose intolerant, I left them to my husband to review. He said they were delicious; he doesn’t usually go for eclairs as they are more caramel than chocolate but I like these because of the melt-in-the-mouth chocolate centres take them to another level! In supermarkets now.
