This post was supposed to go out last week, but I had two power cuts last Saturday that put paid to that! And now I’m desperately trying to get ready for a Eurovision shindig tonight!
Nonetheless, this is the sixth instalment of my series, I like to call ‘That’s What I Call New’. A round up of a few things I have been sent to try out.
First off, a savoury sampling and it’s a Chicago Town pizza. Chicago Town have launched a new range of pizzas called The Takeaway which come to you with a dough that isn’t pre-cooked . It rises in your oven to give you that fresh Takeaway taste.
I have to say I loved the pizza and so did Disneyboi. It had a taste, as if it were delivered rather than popped in the oven. We tried the Stuffed Crust BBQ Pulled Pork flavour and loved the BBQ sauce in the crust. It wasn’t a thick, doughy pizza either which neither of us like. All in an all a big hit. Available in most supermarkets. Pop over to the Chicago TownFacebook page for news, promotions and giveaways.
Next I was sent some new flavours of popcorn to try from Tyrrells. Tyrrell’s are perhaps better known for their crisps and various other snacks. But they have decided to branch out into the popcorn direction and have launched with four delicious flavours of Poshcorn – sea salted, sweet and salted plus two new flavours ‘Coconut and Caramel’ and ‘Lemon Cupcake’. I was sent a bag of each flavour to try and enjoyed them all.
My favourite was the coconut and caramel with both flavours coming through well. The Lemon Cupcake I thought would be more ‘cakey’ but I still enjoyed it even though I found it less sweet than expected. The salted and sweet and salted flavours were lovely too.
Now, remember the Fabulous Bakin’ Boys who bring us delicious cupcakes, muffins and other tasty treats? Well, they have renamed themselves The Fabulous Bakers and they have ‘reformulated’ their products to contain only real fruit and natural ingredients with no artificialness going on whatsoever!
I was sent a selection of their new snacks to try. These were their Apricot and Almond White Chocolatey popcorn bars and Raspberry and White Chocolatey popcorn bars. Also oaty cereal bars in Banana Brunch flavour, Berry Good Things flavour and Mango and Pineapple flavour.
I can tell you now all of these were delectable! The popcorn bars were fun and crumbly in your mouth and both came in at under 145 calories each.
The oaty cereal bars were moist and chewy and very flapjack like. My personal favourite was the Banana Brunch bar which tasted like a cross-between banana bread and a flapjack – very addictive.
Check out the Fabulous Bakers website for full information on their new ranges. They are available in most supermarkets coming in at around £1.79 for a pack of four.
Now, I'm off to get ready for the Eurovision Party! Have fun everyone if you are watching...
