I’m always on the lookout for new foodie finds for my family to enjoy and to share with you, my readers! Whether I’m approached by PR companies, individuals or discover new products at industry events, I’m always excited to showcase the latest. This time, I’m featuring two great cheese brands, a British vineyard and some amazing icing sugars that could transform your baking.
So without further ado, here are my latest Foodie Finds! (Want your product to be considered? Please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Sugar and Crumbs Flavoured Icing Sugars
I have been using Sugar and Crumbs icing sugars for some time now and am a huge fan. I love their recent packaging makeover – the bright, colourful, resealable packages give a real hint of all the flavour packed inside. From Salted Caramel to Pistachio, there’s a flavour of icing sugar to please everyone! I recently tried some of their latest flavours – Chocolate Milkshake, Cherry Bakewell, Pink Lemonade and Raspberry Ripple. They are all delicious and the best thing is, these icings are all white so you can easily tint them to the exact shade you want. You can even make fudge with them! Check out my favourite way to use their Salted Caramel icing sugar!
Sugar and Crumbs’ flavoured icing sugars and cocoa powders are all natural. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, they are gluten free, dairy free, lactose free and nut free.
Stanlake Park Wines
I discovered something wonderful at The Love Your Leftovers Challenge – there’s a vineyard just outside Twyford in Berkshire, relatively near to where I live! Stanlake Park Wine Estate grow many varieties of grapes, including classic Champagne varieties Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. I tasted their Regatta 2010 white, The Reserve 2011 Red and, my favourite, their Ascot Brut 2008, a gorgeous sparkling wine. I’m planning a visit to their Cellar Shop soon!
Leerdammer Toastie and Burger
Perfect for melting over burgers and on sandwiches, Leerdammer is a mild yet flavourful cheese. The Toastie and Burger slices are really convenient to have on hand and can be used in so many different dishes, including my Guacamole and Hawaiian Toasties and these wonderful burger recipes.
Laughing Cow Mini Cravings
Craving a little treat? Laughing Cow Mini Cravings individually wrapped cheese squares make perfect snacks and at 14 calories each they won’t throw you off your healthy eating plan. There’s a great variety of flavours, from Laughing Cow’s signature original cream cheese to herb varieties (ham and herb, three cheese and garlic and herb) and cheddar, smoked and blue cheese flavours. Creamy, flavourful and satisfying, I loved all the little squares except the blue cheese flavour – because I’m not a big fan of blue cheese – but those in my family who liked blue cheese really enjoyed them. Mini Cravings are perfect for picnics, lunch boxes and snacks.
