Foodie Finds #4 | Round Up

April 19, 2017

I’m such a foodie and always on the look out for new things to try. Whether something has been sent to me or discovered on my wanderings round the shops, new foodie items are always exciting.

This month has been all about the treats, especially with Easter and the long weekend. Alcohol, sweet treats and new restaurant finds are all featuring on this month’s round up.

Foodie Finds - Premier Estates Prosecco

#1 Premier Estates Wine

The long weekend is always a reason to celebrate, and you can’t go wrong with Premier Estates Prosecco.* This is a delicious prosecco, the perfect balance of sweet and dry, no wonder it is multi award winning! Dr W and I enjoyed this served ice cold in our brand new fizz glasses (thank you Mummy Pond) on our wonderful balcony. Drinks with a view, perfect. Their Mini Bottles of Prosecco are also fab for picnics!

Foodie Finds - Mini Bahlsen Biscuits

#2 Bahlsen Biscuits

Next up, the very dangerous mini Bahlsen Biscuits.* Leibniz Minis (smaller versions of firm favourites) and Messino Minis (dark chocolate with a soft orange centre) were the feature of our long weekend treats along side all the Easter eggs! The thing is when they’re mini, it’s quite easy to eat a lot of these… They didn’t last long.

Foodie Finds - Co-op Food UK Easter Egg Hunt

#3 Easter Egg Hunts

For Easter the Co-op Food Egg Hunt* eggs were great fun! As part of a campaign I surprised my #GoodEgg (Dr W) with an egg hunt round the flat. He’s had a real tough old time lately and despite this, has been looking after me with my poorly arthritis. He very much enjoyed his chocolate stash, I did get to have a couple though, with some persuasion…!

Foodie Finds - Blacksticks Blue Cheese Easter Egg

#4 Cheese Easter Egg

Now I got a rather nice treat the other day, an Easter egg made with Blacksticks Blue Spreadable.* An incredibly wonderful idea and the spreadable cheese itself is incredible. Dr W and I have enjoyed it on sandwiches and stirred into mash potato. I’m really hoping this means Blacksticks Blue are releasing the spreadable cheese permanently!

Foodie Finds - Chick n Sours London

#5 Chick ‘n’ Sours, London

Last but not least, Dr W and I had come across Chick ‘n’ Sours in London ages ago, but every time we’ve tried to visit it’s been full! Luckily for us we were after an early dinner on Saturday and we were able to bag ourselves a table. We discovered that Chick ‘n’ Sours make the most incredible fried chicken. The Mexi-Nese Chicken Nachos were cheesy and spicy and wonderful! Dr W had the K-Pop Korean Fried Chicken Burger, with Kimchi and hot sauce, it was delicious (and I don’t usually like Kimchi). I ordered the Guest Fry Sweet ‘n’ Sour Chicken, the sauce was perfect and not too sweet, the chilli added a perfect kick to this sweet sauce too! I also highly recommend the Pineapple and Black Pepper Margarita, the perfect drink to go with fried chicken.

    Oh boy! Your post has made me want to reach for the sweet treats! Thankfully, I’m sat enjoying a glass of Prosecco as we speak. The Blacksticks Blue Easter egg is an amazing idea, I wish I’d have known this existed at Easter- it’s my other half’s favourite!

    that cheese egg looks epic – I think N would prefer that to chocolate 🙂 He loves Blacksticks Blue. And you can’t beat dark chocolate biscuits so I’m definitely going to have hunt down some of these Bahlsen’s

    Its nice to receive foodie parcels in the post. I love the idea of mini processo bottles but a cheese Easter egg that is very different and first time I have heard of such a thing.It would make a great present for a cheese lover for sure.

    The Easter Cheese Egg is genius! I always eat too much chocolate around Easter – this sounds like my kind of solution x

    Great foodie inspo post! I hadn’t heard of a cheese easter egg, however this makes total sense and I really want one next year now! I’m always looking for new food spots in London too and Chick n Sours sounds great – thanks for sharing 🙂

    A cheese Easter egg – what an ingenious idea! That chicken place in London looks amazing also, makes me wish I lived closer to places like that sometimes.
