Christmas Gift Guide: Food & Drink

It’s that time of year again… my birthday has passed so now it’s ok for me to get excited about Christmas!  Here is the first of my Gift Guides :-)

1. Guylian Luxury Belgian Collection: Do I even need to explain why this is in here?  Everyone loves Guylian and this box is massive! £16.99 for 517g 

2. Dubliner Irish Whiskey: I think I end up buying whiskey every year for one or more of the men in my family!  Dubliner is apparently a blend of honeycomb, caramel and whiskey flavours so it sounds like a whiskey I might actually like myself!  RRP £19.49.

3. Coole Swan:  Irish Cream Liqueur which includes Single Malt Irish Whiskey and real chocolate and is lovely in hot chocolate.  You can also use in cocktails and desserts.

4. Cherizena Christmas Coffee:  This coffee is flavoured with rum, nuts and spice and is available as beans or ground, regular or decaffeinated.  A great present for coffee lovers!  Find out more on the Facebook pageRRP £3 for 115g

5. Lindor Stracciatella: These limited edition truffles are delicious – nice and creamy with little bits of crunchy cocoa nibs.  Very morish!  RRP 4.59 for 200g

6. Cotswold Gold Infusions:  These rape seed oils are brilliant for people who are into cooking.  I got a gift pack for Nick which includes garlic, chilli and cumin flavoured oils and he loves them.  You can buy online and there is also a big list of stockists here.

7. Malibu Snowcoco: This is the perfect drink for Malibu lovers with little flakes of coconut floating around which make the bottle look like a snow globe! You can also get some wintery cocktails from the Facebook page. RRP £14.75


Choccy Munchy Seeds

When I was offered some Choccy Munchy Seeds to review I was really not sure about them as I’m not generally a fan of seeds.  To be honest, I probably wouldn’t have said yes if there wasn’t ‘choccy’ in the name!

These seeds however are absolutely delicious.  Each packet contains a mixture of pumpkin and sunflower seeds coated with the perfect amount of chocolate and the little bits of apricot taste great as well.  They make a brilliant snack as they are surprisingly filling so stop you wanting to eat more.  You can buy Choccy Munch Seeds from Lakeland, Ocado, Waitrose and some Tesco stores.  I think they would be perfect for vending machines as they make a healthy but tasty alternative to chocolate bars and sweets!
