Perk!er Porridge Pots

This week I received a wonderful parcel from the lovely Ann Perkins, the co founder of Perk!er, with lots of yummy porridges to try. I am a massive fan of porridge so when I discovered Perk!ier, a gluten free alternative I was intrigued to say the least. The brand offers a wide range of products that are all gluten free, mostly vegan and all vegetarian!

I decided this morning to try the cute little porridge pot that you simply add water to,upon removing the lid I was greeted by a lovely fragrant  smell of cinnamon with slight undertones of apple. The smell became even stronger and more enticing once I added the hot water. You have to leave it for two minutes to thicken up. Now, onto the actual taste of the porridge, it had a really traditional taste to it, thick chewy oats, fresh plump raisins and big crunchy chunks of apple. It has to be one of the best porridge pots that I have ever tried as it was free of any artificial tastes and I knew that it was all good stuff in it. 

I cannot wait for tomorrow morning to try the berry variety!

I tried the berry variety this morning, it was somehow even better than the apple,cinnamon & raisin flavour. something I thought not to be possible! It was sweeter than the apple, but in a good, natural way that reassured you that this was not only delicious but a great source of sustainable energy that will get you all the way through until lunch. It left me feeling full but not boated until lunch which is always a winner in my books. There was a good ratio of fruit to oats so you got a piece almost every spoonful. It was quick to make and really thick (depending upon how much water you use). Overall I feel that these products are a delicious product that allow you to truly appreciate the flavour of the oats rather than the synthetic and a little artificial taste of most other porridge products.

What I Learned from Second Hand September

It is October now, and that means Second Hand September has been and gone, but it really has not been forgotten, or at least not for me. I h...
