This week, Christmas came early at A Passion for Homes, with the eagerly awaited arrival of a special gift – a hamper from John Lewis. The box was opened with extreme excitement and the first glance of the contents didn’t disappoint…
A high quality, superb variety, exciting double layer of goodies, totally yummy!
So, here is a product by product review (typed with my mouth full, sorry!):
Chocca Mocca Chocolates – real blueberries smothered in blueberry flavour chocolate – succulent, sticky, full of flavour and totally scrummy!
Duncan’s of Deeside Family Recipe Scottish Shortbread – obviously a quality shortbread with a rich taste, buttery, delicious and crisp – more please!
Ardens Green & Black Olive Twists – crunchy and addictive (the whole box eaten in one sitting!), entwined with green and black olives to give an extremely tasty and unique snack experience.
It takes a lot to drag me away from my usual brand of tea, but the 1869 English Tea from New English Teas Limited was a fantastic departure. The flavour and quality of the tea is undeniable and refreshing, this tea addict was very happy!
New York Delhi VIP nuts, Bollywood barbecue – peanuts as you have never tasted before but will want to again, tangy, tasty, terrific!
Melting Pot Handmade Chocolate Fudge – pure indulgence and pure pleasure, best fudge I have ever tasted!
Lessiters pure Swiss chocolate – it’s chocolate, it’s Swiss and it’s wonderful – enough said!
Claire’s Handmade Very Fruity Blackberry and Apple Jam – made my toast sing, totally gorgeous!
Olives Et Al – Moorish Coriander and Cumin Olives – wow, a cracking combination of tastes, ‘Moorish’ indeed!
Bottle Green Spiced Berry Cordial – refreshing and delicious when served hot, a definite hit with everyone who tried it.
Belvoir Fruit Farms Mulled Winter Punch (non-alcoholic) – a brilliant non-alcoholic punch, the smell and taste were rich and warming. Can be mixed with red wine to create a delicious alternative to mulled wine.
Christmas pudding – looks amazing, will let you know what it’s like after Christmas, but if looks are anything to go by – happy days!
