Crazy Jack Organic Brazil Nuts 100 g : Five Stars – say’s it all!

Crazy Jack Organic Brazil Nuts 100 g : Five Stars – say’s it all!

Brazil nuts are of small/medium size as compared to other products i have used in past. I used to buy these at sainsburys, but they stoppedselling them a while ago. I was so pleased to find them on amazon, & get them delivered to my door,( saved keep going into the stores, to find them sold out, or unavailable anymore )they are a good price, & organic, which couldn’t be better for my needs. For some a brazil nut is…

Philibert Routin 1883 Routin 1883 Syrup – 1L Caramel : Good Caramel flavour for Sugar Free

Philibert Routin 1883 Routin 1883 Syrup – 1L Caramel : Good Caramel flavour for Sugar Free

Good caramel flavour for sugar free. I’ve tried a few sugar free caramel syrups and have been consistenly dissapointed by the flavour. Not only is this a splenda product so has no nast aspartame, the caramel flavour is far superiour to any other brand. No it’s not as good as the real thing but as far as sugar free caramel goes it’s the best i’ve found. My daughter loves it, and its a great price too. My husband and i…

Callebaut Select Dark 54, Good for coating AND eating

Callebaut Select Dark 54, Good for coating AND eating

Brilliant quality chocolate at a fantastic price. If you do lots of baking and don’t want to have to consistently buy blocks of chocolate from the supermarker at nearly £2 pounds for 100grams for the good stuff. This bag is fantastic, it has a fantastic ‘chocolock’ mechanism which is like a zip lock but clips in place instead. The chocolate are in the bag in little tiny buttons, about half the size of a cadburys button. The benefit, is no…

Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix 240 g : Rapid shipment meant mix arrived in plenty of time

A pack of 12 mixes is so handy and i appreciate being able to order in that amount. I have always loved jiffy corn muffin mix since i had it on my first campout as a cub scout almost 55 years ago. They are so simple to make – add egg and milk, mix, pour in greased muffin tins bake 15 minutes. We had them with the turkey for christmas and several times since. Even my british wife and mother-in-law…

Nestlé Carnation Topping Evaporated Milk 410g : Nestle Carnation Milk

Nestlé Carnation Topping Evaporated Milk 410g : Nestle Carnation Milk

My other half luves this on his cornflakes and was tired of carrying in weekly shop, ordered online and was cheaper than tescos. I only ever drink my instant coffee (kenco) with this milk these days. It tastes so good that i have forgo the thought of buying a nespresso machine. It goes well with tea as well. And the price of this pack of 12 is really good compared to buying them individually outside. I have started subscribing them…

Suma Sesame Seeds 5 kg : Very good product if you like sesame seeds

Suma Sesame Seeds 5 kg : Very good product if you like sesame seeds

Despite buying these sesame seeds with a relatively short time remaining until the best before date (at a discounted price), i am impressed with the quality. The taste and texture is as good as any other sesame seeds i’ve ever purchased, and stored correctly in the proverbial cool, dark place i am sure they will be last a reasonable length of time. Sesame seeds are not very dense, so when it came to storing 5kg of them i required glass…

MexGrocer Tortilla Press 19 cm : Great quality cast iron tortilla press

MexGrocer Tortilla Press 19 cm : Great quality cast iron tortilla press

Heavy duty and robust, made out of cast iron so your tortilla comes out very flat and round. Went online to find some recipes on how to make tortilla properly out of masa harina, follow that and you can’t go wrong. The press came with a plastic, don’t throw it away as it serves a purpose. I hope my review helps customers out there and doesn’t get put off by making their own tortilla. Heavy duty and robust, made out…

Betty Crocker Super Moist French Vanilla Cake Mix, Excellent but beware the sweetness: needs a bit of tweaking.

Betty Crocker Super Moist French Vanilla Cake Mix, Excellent but beware the sweetness: needs a bit of tweaking.

Very good, shame that is so pricey. It’s a shame that is too pricey 🙁 if not i would buy this cake mix every week. I’m pleased with the results but it could be better if it was not that expensive. Overall i would recommend it. Excellent but beware the sweetness: needs a bit of tweaking. . Useful and dead easy to make (just whip the content of the packet at high speed for 2mn with 3 eggs, 1 cup…

EZ-Sweetz (2oz – Liquid Sucralose Sweetener 800 Servings/Bottle), OK in tea, not good in coffee. Preferable to powdered Splenda for blood glucose levels, but not to Splenda tablets

EZ-Sweetz (2oz – Liquid Sucralose Sweetener 800 Servings/Bottle), OK in tea, not good in coffee. Preferable to powdered Splenda for blood glucose levels, but not to Splenda tablets

Ok in tea, not good in coffee. Preferable to powdered splenda for blood glucose levels, but not to splenda tablets. This is okay in tea, and revolting in coffee. The reason is that it leaves a slight metallic after taste. This combines adequately with tea (english breakfast in particular) but just doesn’t work with coffee, which becomes very bitter. In tea, it leaves a sort of honeyed/metal aftertaste which is rather sickly and cloying. Interestingly, splenda (which contains sucralose as…

Suma Organic Almonds 125 g, Good value, a few bitter almonds inside though!

Suma Organic Almonds 125 g, Good value, a few bitter almonds inside though!

Quality organic almonds that don’t break your bank. Products arrived very promptly, and so far the best tasting organic almonds i’ve ever had. Have been buying organic almonds from h&b, which is quite pricey, and to be honest, they don’t taste as good as these suma ones. With its price and quality, i would recommend. Very tasty almonds, fresh taste with the occasional bitter one but overall exceptional quality. Would totally recommend as great for snacking on and full of…
