Food, glorious food

Fucking Strong Coffee Fudge

Fudge has had an upgrade: a hit of rich, caffeinated coffee goodness in every single square. Brazilian and Honduran Arabica coffee to be precise. Fancy. And the good old fashioned fudge that you know and love, of course. You don’t mess with perfection.

Unsheath the luxurious little tray of individual squares of bean studded fudge and tuck in. Maybe not directly before bedtime or you might be a little buzzier than usual, mind.

Marmite Popcorn

Yeast your eyes on this glorious snack packet. No really, drink it in, it’s not going to hang around for long once you open them.

Insanely moreish, this generous pack of popcorn is covered in a very curious flavour combination: caramel and Marmite. Hear us out, it’s delicious! You really don’t know what you’re missing. The sample bags of these we received lasted about 5 minutes before we destroyed the lot.

Even lifelong Marmite haters will be converted when they try one, if you can find a way to force them without breaking the Geneva convention. Persuasion skills unfortunately not included.

Breakfast Buffet Chocolate Bar Set

Continuing the sweet-meets-savory theme, we have this set of three Breakfast Buffet chocolate bars from the master chocolatiers at Creighton’s.

Each set contains three different bars:

  • Maple Bacon: dark chocolate infused with maple syrup and filled with bacon flavour bits
  • Spoon of Cereal: marshmallow flavoured white chocolate with cereal hoops
  • Coffee and Crumbs: coffee flavoured milk chocolate and cinnamon toast crumbs

There’s something for everyone! Our personal favourite is the Spoon of Cereal bar, but you know what we’re like about white chocolate. (links to dinosaur eggs and unicorn choc)

Edible Grasshoppers

Wait, don't go. These are worth trying, especially the paprika flavoured ones.

They may look a bit unappetising but these adventurous gourmet fried grasshoppers are actually rather tasty.

And even if the acquired taste isn’t one you develop, you can rest easy knowing that the bug you just ate is a very healthy choice. No, really! Fried grasshoppers contain roughly 40g of protein per 100g, contain all 9 essential amino acids, have similar levels of omegas 3 and 6 to fish, similar levels of vitamin B1, B2 and B12 to beef, and serve up 2x more iron than spinach.

Who knows, this time next year you could be sprinkling these on your salads! Probably not, to be fair. But they’re still worth a go - if you dare.

Unicorn Poop

Call the physics council, we've discovered the bounciest, softest, fluffiest substance known to man. And, as responsible founders of this new amazing material, the only thing to do was put it in jars and sell it onwards.

The substance in question is unicorn poop… marshmallows. This massive jar of rainbow coloured ‘mallows is a fruit-flavoured tour de force. They’re even covered in a delicate layer of sugar crystals so they almost glitter. Anyone would think unicorns are magic, with excrement like this!

Space Food

Take one small step for you, and one massive leap for your tastebuds. Try some Space Food, just like real life astronauts eat!

Each of these futuristic packets contains a different type of frozen, vacuum dried ice cream, sealed in a special foil pouch for realistic gravity-less munching. The texture is unlike anything you’ve ever had before. Definitely gives a new meaning to the phrase ‘melts in the mouth’.

Obviously it also makes you feel like an astronaut. An unattainable childhood dream realised for less than £6. It’s a great time to be alive.

If this lovely lot haven't tickled your fancy, tuck a serviette into your collar and hungrily amble over to our Food department for something that's guaranteed to get your stomach rumbling.
