Easter 2019!

Hello! It's slowly creeping up, it's bouncing back into our weekend's Easter! *pop* As I do each year (although, I've only been around for 2 of them!) Here's a little round up of nifty gifty bits and bobs which don't break the bank/are good value for what they are.

All round good'un: Daffodils! Most supermarkets sell daffodils bundles for just £1, or you can get things like little tubs of tete a tetes (the tiny ones) for around £1-2. These may be a good gift for someone who doesn't like chocolate, or just for yourself to brighten up the place.


Asda have this lovely looking trio of milky style, white and dark chocolate eggs for £4.50. Looks nice as a gift on it's own, or could be split up.

Morrisons also have their own eggs, for £2.50 you can get an egg with truffles, in milky, white or dark.

Often Morrisons do a 3 for £10 on Moo Free eggs too. This hasn't happened yet but if it does, I'll update the blog!

Sainsbury's have milky and white, but also strawberry and white chocolate. Each are £3.50, so getting a bit expensive, but interesting flavour!

They also have 'Rhythm' mini egg bags for £1.25. I think you get 6 mini eggs.

Holland and Barrett have their own milk style egg for £2.99, which includes a little chocolate bar.

H and B also have Plamil/So Free products, such as these mini half eggs and larger white chocolate egg, both £2.99.

Plamil Milk Chocolate Alternative Mini Half Eggs 65g

So Free White Chocolate Alternative Egg 100g

Non-egg chocolate!

Moo free have some lovely little chocolate bars of 'Rosie Rabbit' for around 99p depending on where you buy it (Asda are 99p!)

Asda also has this bigger bunny for £3!

Whatcha think?! Lots to choose from this year, it's always expanding, which is great! Have I missed anything? If so, let me know and I'll add it and credit you!

Hope this helps!

Hello, I think this blog may be short, but too long for a tweet. Jackfruit is a booming business at the moment, with a whole array of products on the shelves. However, with the prepackaged, prefalvoured jackfruit, it can be pretty expensive, but fear not! Most supermarkets now do tins of young jackfruit, the type you need for pulled style foods. Here's a tiny round up of jackfruit tins.

Please note! Asian supermarkets tend to have jackfruit, but this isn't possible for many people, so I won't go too much into this. But if you have a store near you, it's worth a check!

The best! 

The best ever that I've seen is Aldi for £1.09. But Aldi seem to vary their stock frequently, so this is more of a bonus *look out for it* than a definite find. The brand seen was this Sun Pride one:

The pretty good!

Asda and Sainsbury's also sell this brand for £1.20. 

The good enough I guess!

Tesco have now released their own brands tins for £2. You get 10g more in the tin, but that doesn't equate to the 80p more. But good to know if Tesco is your only available supermarket.

A little recipe

No good me telling you this joyous tip if you don't know what to do with it! Well the truth is, I just Google recipes to try until I find one with easy to find ingredients that are cheap enough in case I muck it up. So I've done this! This recipe from It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken has very normal ingredients and is pretty quick. But there are tons of recipes online if you fancy something else. 

Hope this helps!
