Food and Drink Review Round-up

This past month we have been busy reviewing some fantastic new foods and drinks - we got to try a new and different sauce which is designed and made for breakfast, some tasty and refreshing drinks, breakfast biscuits (my favourite), the new Old El Paso wraps and new and exciting jelly drinks designed for children.

Premium Inn's Purple Sauce:

A condiment with a twist -

Purple Sauce

, a new and unique sauce and it tastes yummy. 

An unusual colour, purple with a unique smokey flavour.  The 

sauce

's base is blackberry and includes a range of natural ingredients – including cracked black pepper, crushed chillies, toasted cumin and smoked salt. 

The 

sauce

 has no artificial colours or flavourings, is suitable for vegetarians.

A very tasty alternative, perfect with an omelette, or a bacon butty or great with a fry up. It has a 

zingy and quite a sweet smokey flavour - very nice indeed.

belVita Soft Bakes:

My favourite breakfast snacks brand introduced a new range called, Soft Bakes.  

Available in three different varieties: Golden Grain, Red Berries or Chocolate Chips, 

belVita

’s Soft Bakes combine delicious flavours with a light and soft texture. 

Soft Bakes offer a nutritious and tasty breakfast, allowing you to have a convenient on the go breakfast.

Made with five whole grains and rich in cereals, the brand new Soft Bakes offer a great source of fibre, containing vitamins B6, magnesium and iron. The only soft biscuit with proven sustainable energy* with slow release carbohydrates.

Just Drink Aloe:

Just Drink Aloe, cleanse, aids detox and supports your digestive system, infuse you with energy (and it is low in sugar) and is also great for your skin. A much healthier option than fizzy or other drinks available.

Just Drink Aloe is vegetarian society certified, gluten free, lactose free and made from real aloe vera and not from powder like most other aloe vera drinks.

We were sent three bottles from aloe vera drink range to try out and review, one original flavour, Mango and Passionfruit. Just Drink Aloe drinks are 

very refreshing, with little bits of pulp which explodes flavour into your mouth, and overall just a great drink

Old El Paso Restaurante Soft Taco Kit:

We love Old El Paso! Every weekend we have an Old El Paso 'Mexican' feast night - we buy a mix of wraps, boats and tacos, we add some rice and chips and we have a great meal. It's fun, tasty and the kids love it.

Old El Paso 

have released their newest range, called Restaurante - a soft taco kit. Available in four different flavours:

  • Steak Carne Asada
  • Pork El Pastor 
  • Chicken Tinga

We loved these so much, they will now be a weekly addition to our Mexican feast night!
