What’s in my Trolley: October 2017

Happy Halloween!  It’s the end of the month and that can only mean one thing: it’s time for What’s in my Trolley!  This month has been a pretty hectic one, and to be completely, honest, pretty much everything in this month’s trolley is something I picked up at this year’s BBC Good Food Show. Despite it being a little smaller and less focused on local business this year, I did still manage to pick up a few gems!

HECK THAI STYLE TURKEY SAUSAGES

I’m a huge fan of Heck Food. Their range of gluten free, high protein and low fat sausages are super tasty and filled with quality meat rather than crap. Their chicken sausages are amazing, but I’ve tried pretty much all of them, so when I saw that they had turkey sausages, I was curious. These ones are Thai inspired, filled with turkey mince, sweet chilli sauce, coriander, chilli and garlic. Perfect in stir fries or simply dipped into more sweet chilli!

KENDAL MINT CAKE LIQUEUR

This is one for all you mint lovers out there! My favourite ice cream flavour is definitely mint choc chip, I love dark chocolate mints, mint creams, pretty much anything sweet and minty, I am 100% here for. This liqueur is inspired by the famous Kendal mint cake, but also has a hint of chocolate, so what you basically have is an After Eight in a drink. It’s super smooth and has a perfect, minty flavour – SO yummy!

HUNGRY SQUIRREL NUT BUTTERS

So as you may have guessed, I have a bit of a nut butter obsession. Scooping a spoonful out the jar and eating it immediately feels super indulgent and is sort of healthy! Hungry Squirrel have a range of nut butters with more unusual and exciting flavours, like cookie dough cashew butter, which is flavoured with cinnamon and maple syrup and so addictive. I decided to buy one of their sample packs so I could taste them all, its definitely my favourite, but the royal raspberry – almond butter with freeze-dried raspberry – is a close second! Buy them here.

TIPSY TART BLOOD ORANGE GIN

Yes that’s right, more booze! Everyone is going nuts for gin these days, and The Tipsy Tart has an impressive collection of infused gins, vodkas and liqueurs. My favourite though was definitely the blood orange gin, which has a great citrus punch but still sweet enough to feel like a treat. I reckon it would be delicious topped off with prosecco! You can buy it, and their many other flavours, here.
