[Review] Walkers Discos Crisps

Crisps are snacks that I eat all the time but this is one that I've eaten since I was young but never reviewed so decided to review it now.


Strangely, the present Discos taste different in the sense that the crisps are thicker and harder.
There are flavours: Prawn cocktail, Salt and Vinegar, Cheese and Onion.

The Salt and vinegar is the best, the prawn cocktail is very acidic while the cheese and onion tasted a bit off in the way it was a little bit rancid.
Perhaps the crisps are thicker than they were before because when you open the packet, there isn't many inside!






[Review] Walkers Originally Smiths salt and shake crisps

I have always been obsessed with originally smiths salt and shake crisps salt sachet.
The salt inside the dark blue sachet are perfectly spherical balls.
For people with a low sodium diet, these are the only crisps that do not contain salt so I would definitely recommend these crisps to them if they have a crisps craving.





[Review] Violife Cheese

A while ago I had these vegan meatballs at Subway for Veganuary.
The meatballs were not nice but the thing that saved the day was the vegan cheese on top which came from Violife.
The cheese slices melted and tasted like cheddar so I would definitely recommend this brand.

I looked everywhere for it and finally found them at Marks and Spencers where they come in a form of block, grated, slices and even creamy spread.

[Review] M&S Bramley Apple Turnovers

Marks and Spencers has the best sweet treats so went there to get my cream cravings.
Got the Bramley apple turnover which contain delicious freshly whipped cream.
The apple turnovers have to be eaten asap before the pasty gets soggy. I love that lovely balance of tart crisp apple cubes and cream encased in the light puff pastry dusted with powdered sugar.
I am not sure if they have changed the recipe as the one I tried in December 2018 has sugar on top but the one here clearly had caster sugar (powdered sugar) which is delicate and gives it some subtle sweetness.



[Review] Tesco Taramasalata 200G

Taramasalata is one of my favourite dips but not all of them are nice because some can be too smokey or too fishy but the Tesco Greek Inspired Marinated cod roe mixed with bread rusk and lemon juice was brilliant.
The colour and consistency was good, it was fluffy and creamy which would go really well with some decent chips!


[Review] Tesco Strawberry Jam Donuts

I felt like having something sweet so got the Tesco Strawberry Jam Donuts which have fresh cream in them.
There is also a custard version which I have been meaning to try but not all Tescos have them as strawberry is more popular.
The plastic tray that holds the donut is specially designed so that the cream does not touch the box.
Well done Tesco!
Anyway, the donut was light and fluffy as stated and the cream and jam were flawless so it definitely satisfied my sweet cravings.

[Review] Co-op Ham, Cheese and Pickle Sandwich

Just felt like a sandwich, so got the Co-op Ham, Cheese and Pickle Sandwich.
It was ok but I felt that the pickles didn't have enough punch as it veered towards the sweet side while the ham was a bit thin.
The lettuce in it was annoying as well.


[Review] Co-op Feta and Red Pepper Pasta Bowl

The Co-op Feta and Red Pepper Pasta Bowl looked quite nice so got it.
Overall, it was filling and quite nice because I liked the tomato dressing which was appetizing complimented by the feta pieces.



[Review] M&S Plant Kitchen Mushroom Stroganoff with cauliflower rice

The M&S Plant Kitchen Mushroom Stroganoff with cauliflower rice looked interesting so decided to give it try.
A hearty, coconut cream-enriched mushroom stew paired with lightly spiced roasted cauliflower rice.
The mushrooms were earthy and nice but I found the coconut in the sauce made it feel like a Thai dish but overall, it was nice especially the cauliflower rice.

[Review] M&S Plant Kitchen No Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich

I have always been curious about the M&S Plant Kitchen No Tuna & Sweetcorn Sandwich because what could they put in to replace the tuna.
It turns out to be soya chunks which looks convincingly like tuna but the texture was a little chewy compared to tuna.
The taste was really good without the fishiness complimented by the sweetcorn and the dressing they use was refreshing.

[Review] M&S Plant Kitchen No Egg & Watercress Sandwich

I have always been curious about the M&S Plant Kitchen No Egg & Watercress Sandwich because what could they put in to replace the egg.
It turns out to be firm tofu and I was so glad I tried it because it was really tasty and the smart use of the crushed cannellini beans gave it that starchy cooked egg yolk texture.
There was also black pepper in it which gave it that extra depth so this sandwich is definitely worth trying.

[Review] Morrisons Apple, Spinach & Wild Rice Spinach Salad in a citrus vinaigrette

I was quite looking forward to this Morrisons Apple, Spinach & Wild Rice Spinach Salad in a citrus vinaigrette because I love wild rice and spinach.
It also had pieces of apple and cranberries to give it a nice colour.
Unfortunately, I found the taste too acidic and minty.
I think the taste could have been improved with some strong cheese like blue cheese.

Marks and Spencers M&S Food Cheesy Easter Egg Finds!!

Probably the Cheesiest Easter Eggs of its kind at Marks and Spencers!
Made with Barber's Farmhouse Cheddar and a vintage 18-month matured Red Leicester "yolk".
The eggs come in a cardboard box, to make them look like real chicken's eggs.
As well as the regular size, there is also a The Big Cheesy One which feels more like Easter.
