A little round-up of some of the yummy things that have been landing through the letterbox at Jam and Clotted Cream HQ recently.
Eden Project Baobab Chocolate and Baobab Powder
The Eden Project kindly sent me three varieties of their popular Baobab Chocolate - White Chocolate with Baobab and Madagascan Vanilla, Milk Chocolate with Baobab and Mango and Dark Chocolate with Baobab and Watermelon. I have to admit the kids didn't give me look with the white chocolate one but I absolutely loved the milk chocolate with baobab and mango.
You can find out about the health benefits of Baobab and the way the Eden Project is supporting Baobab harvesting projects in Malawi here. I was also lucky enough to be sent a sachet of Baobab powder which I plan to add to smoothies, yogurts and cereal - I might also try and make some Baobab Flapjacks for a healthy energy snack - watch this space for a recipe coming soon!
Martin Millers Gin
I have become rather partial to a gin and tonic of late so I was very pleased to see a bottle of Martin Millers Gin pop through my letterbox. For the story on how and why Martin Miller and two of his friends founded Martin Millers Gin in 1999 have a look at their website- it involves love, obsession and just a little bit of madness!
Established over 100 years ago in the Scottish Highlands, Walkers Shortbread has long been established as the worlds leading purveyor of luxury shortbread. The company is still in the Walker family today and is run by the grandchildren and great grandchildren of the founder Joseph Walker. I was sent a lovely large hamper full of different shapes of shortbread and look forward to working my way through them all.
Not much to say on this one...other than YUM!!!!! I loved the Cadbury Dairy Milk with Oreo but this one was amazing.
