May Product Picks


You know it's going to be good when an ice cream sandwich is involved ๐Ÿ˜

Every month I bring you a round-up of my best food and drink finds from around the UK. I absolutely love May's selection of goodies!

I've included:

  • a couple of stand-out sauces (BBQ season is here!)
  • some very yummy, perfectly crumbly shortbread (who doesn't love shortbread?)
  • a great big Jubilee picnic hamper (any excuse for a feast...)
  • and much much more


Blanco Nino Tortilla Chips

These are picnic perfect chips!

After trying each and ever Blanco Nino flavour, I raved about these in a recent post and I've decided my top faves are the Chili & Lime and Ancient Grain bags (which would be great with the ChicP hummus dip you'll see a bit further down in the post).

Halen Mรดn, Black Garlic Ketchup

Aged garlic is the magic ingredient in this ketchup, and it really is delicious.

I'm not the only big fan of this bottle. Just take a peek at the reviews to hear what other ketchup-lovers have to say about this supreme sauce. Addictive is an understatement.

Happy Endings Monumintal

The best kind of sandwich ever? Maybe.

All I know is that this Monumental ice cream sandwich is a thing of beauty. Fresh mint Stracciatella ice cream is sandwiched between a chocolate covered chocolate biscuit (read that bit again...chocolate covered chocolate biscuits 🤩). I'll have one for each hand please.

Fortnum's X Sapling Citrus Vodka

Sapling Spirits is a sustainable British brand who have teamed up with Fortnum & Mason to create this gorgeous limited edition Citrus Vodka.

It's made using 40kg of lemon and orange peel waste that was collected from the Fortnum's bar & restaurant, 45 Jermyn St. (A crazy 3.8 million tonnes of citrus peel is thrown away in the UK each year!) Sapling are also planting 1 tree for every bottle sold (there are only 396 bottles out there so grab yours quick!)

Chilli and Lime is one of the best flavour combos ever and this bottle should be a kitchen staple.

A little sprinkle of this on fresh mango goes a long way; it's also great on avo on toast and really amphs up a homemade margarita. Basically, you can't go wrong with this one!

ChicP Spinach & Parsley Hummus

This "zingy and fresh" Spinach and Parsley Hummus is hummus of the summer for me. And ChicP are a great brand doing tasty, eco-friendly things with food that would otherwise have gone to waste. Love.

It's coming up quick, but there is still time to get your hands on an absolute whopper of a picnic hamper and have yourselves a Jubilee feast!

Everything is included, including plates and cutlery (it's all 100% plastic-free with recyclable or compostable packaging).

If hampers are your thing, check out this post where I list some of the best luxury food hampers in the UK.

Great for mid-morning tea dunking, picnic nibbling or anytime munching.

This is the next shortbread you should be buying, and it comes in a beautiful and unique Sara Miller tin! Shortbread House make my absolute favourite shortbread, and each handmade biscuit has generously-sized chunky chocolate bits inside.
