That's What I Call New #7

Hello! I haven’t posted for a while on a Saturday, time seems to keep getting away from me.

But I am back and I am dying to tell you about some new things I have been sent to try over the past wee while…

Savoury first and the people at  Chicago Town pizza invited me to try their new flavours of Deep Dish Pizza. These pizzas are so deep, filled with scrumptious fillings, they are almost like a pie – probably where the term pizza pie comes from.

They have new flavours to try in the Deep Dish range which are the New Yorker filled with mozzarella, ham, pepperoni and red onion.
There is the Sloppy Joe, oozing with Chicago Town’s signature tomato sauce, spicy beef, red onions, green peppers and mozzarella.
Then there is the Chicken Club, with chicken breast, bacon, ham and mozzarella. Finally the Pulled Pork. I tried their pulled pork pizza a couple of months back and loved the Smokey BBQ sauce paired with the pork and fried onions. The Deep Dish pizza was no exception.

Retailing at around £2.19 for 2, at most of the big supermarkets, all have been a hit in the Cakeyboi household!

Next up, a savoury and a sweet sampling from Thomas J Fudge. This company sell a large array of sweet and savoury snacks on their website and in some stores, and have very elegant packaging.

To sample, I was sent their Piquant Cheese and Peppercorn Crackers. I can tell you these were SPICY! The peppercorn was definitely not holding back in packing a punch. These will appeal to anyone who loves a bit of heat in their crackers. The cheese flavour was there, but hiding behind the nip of the peppercorns! A very very good cracker, perfect for eating on it’s own or spreading with a topping of your choice. These retail at £2.25 per pack.

Thomas J Fudge also sent me a pack of their Marvellous Milk Chocolate Flapjacks. Well, me and my sweet tooth were in heaven with these thick slabs of syrupy, oaty flapjacks dunked in a generous coating of milk chocolate. These retail at £3.25 for a pack of 8.

Check out their website for the full-range.

 Lastly today, Auntie Anne got in touch with me. Not my Auntie Anne, I don’t have one. But rather the pretzel purveyors. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard of them yet. I tried them in JFK Airport a couple of years back. They sell huge big delicious chewy pretzels in tons of flavours. You can choose from jalapeno, cheese and bacon, almond crunch and raisin to name but a few.

 And when they got in touch with me, I was surprised to hear they now had UK outlets, even one in Scotland. Auntie Anne said that she even sells a home baking kit so you can try making them at home yourself. She popped one in the post for me and I whipped up a batch. They were very easy to make – although my twisting technique could use some honing!

 The box comes with yeast, pretzel mix, baking soda and salt and cinnamon sugar. You can choose to make all salt, all cinnamon sugar or a mix, up to you.

Pop to the website to see where your nearest Auntie Anne’s Outlet is. The home baking kits can be purchased at outlets.

That’s all for now folks.
