Knoppers – my new favourite guilt free snack!

I am so guilty of the old 3pm cake break mid week; I start to flag a little and instantly reach for a cuppa and  something sweet to see me through till dinner. It makes me happy but it’s not great on my waist line which is why I have been on the look out for some tasty alternatives. With perfect timing I was asked if I would like to try out the new Knoppers snack which is just being launched in the UK! Knoppers is made with crispy baked wafers, a milky hazelnut filling and a chocolatey wafer coating –…

On arrival we were greeted by the lovely friendly…

Degustabox – July

July’s Degustabox arrived! With a summer theme I was quick to jump in and discover what little goodies we had to enjoy. The first item I picked out was the Blossom Hill Spritz, I am prone to a little Spritz from time to time so as you can image this box was already a hit. I hadn’t tried this one before but the raspberry and blackcurrant flavours worked so nicely together. It’s a proper summer time sat in the garden kind of drink! The kids were quick to spot the Rowntrees randoms they love these so they didn’t waste any…
