I was rather excited to receive my first foodie penpals parcel! I opened the package and there were lots of goodies inside, so I couldn’t wait to get them all out and have a look.
There was a wide variety of items, each based on each of my preferences which I was happy about. Though I have to admit I have only tried a couple of them so far, but all will be used in due course!
The first item I had to try which got me rather excited and looked rather interesting, was the ‘Malt Salt’. It is a salt flavoured with vinegar so you don’t get soggy chips! My verdict, one of the best foodie seasoning inventions ever, I’ve used it 4 times so far and only received it last week! (Yes, we’ve eaten a lot of (oven) chips recently…) It obviously still tastes of salt but the vinegar flavour is prominent too.
I also tried the ‘BEAR’ raspberry fruit yo-yo’s. These were lovely & tangy and I would probably buy them again for a sweet treat!
Then I tried the ‘The Food Doctor’ roasted bean mix. I was a bit dubious at first, they do look nice, but some of the beans I haven’t tried before. They are an acquired taste, but the second time eating them was nicer than the first! They will be eaten, albeit by the handful, as I do need them for the energy nowadays to keep me going for longer.
Another couple of things my penpal included were Thai red & green curry pastes. These are to get my spice kick with having to stand grinding spices for hours when I don’t have the time lately.
I also received some cake decorations which I love, and will come in very handy next time I make cupcakes! Especially as I’ve been meaning to get some of the wafer daisies for ages…
And the chamomile tea, I will drink at some point this week when I get a few minutes to myself!
Thank you to my foodie penpal, Hannah, for a fab parcel.
