Pudology Vegan Puddings

Recently I received a package of goodies from the kind people of Pudology, a company that makes vegan puddings. I really like this concept as there aren't too many products like this on offer-or at least not that I'm aware of.
The puddings come in a variety of different flavours from the classic combination of banoffee to chocolate orange and all flavours are gluten free.
I was lucky enough to try the chocolate orange, strawberry and lemon. Honestly, they are absolutely delicious! My favourite was the strawberry shortcake styled one, it was made with coconut milk which works really well to make it thick and creamy whilst also adding a subtle flavour. 
The chocolate orange and lemon were also lovely, they felt really luxurious to eat and were a good serving size because they are quite rich so you are left feeling satisfied.

Portlebay Popcorn

You must be getting fed up of me what with all the popcorn reviews but I promise that this will be the last for a while and I am going out with a bang because, oh my goodness these Portlebay flavours are delicious! 
They are all excellent quality with fresh, soft pieces and no unpopped corn kernels (something which irritates me to no end!). I honestly can't find much to fault this delicious tasting popcorn on because it is just so good! I think that my favourite flavour had to be the Wasabi and Sweet Ginger which surprised me, I normally stay away from wasabi as it is too spicy and hurts my nose to eat them but the ginger worked incredibly well and toned the wasabi down! And as a result I absolutely loved it!
Overall they are a good quality popcorn with unique and delicious flavours that have left me excited for all future offerings from Portlebay!
The kind people at Portlebay did send me these but as always I gave an honest review

I love popcorn, I truly do. It has to be one of my favourite snacks because it can be sweet, savoury or a bit of both! I decided to try the Chocolate Crackle flavour of the Metcalfes range. The bag contains only 230 calories which although much higher than the other flavours but it is a larger bag, plus it contains chocolate too which is always a nice addition to practically anything.
The coating on the popcorn is a little uneven so the flavour was a bit hit and miss which was sad because when you got a hit of the chocolate toffee flavour it was simply divine!
Overall I am a little on the fence because despite it being tasty It is rather filling so makes a really good afternoon snack that doesn't leave you wanting more. But I must say that the price is rather off putting at £1.50 a bag it is quite pricey, especially when there are other brands that are just as nice if not better in bigger bags for less.

Ben & Jerry's Raspberry and Chocolate Chunk Greek Style Yogurt

So I finally got my hands on the last of the new Ben & Jerry's flavours, Raspberry Chocolate Chunk, which consists of a raspberry base with chocolate chunks. This flavour is only available in the 500ml tubs so you can treat yourself to as much as you want! 
The raspberry base was quite subtle in flavour but rather enjoyable none the less and worked very well with the dark chocolate chunks which were obviously of a good quality. I wouldn't have minded eating a bar of that actually! The flavour reminded me a bit of the Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt flavour that they used to do except without the chunks of cherry in it, so it is a winner in my book!

Ben & Jerry's All or Nutting Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry's seem to be on a roll at the moment and have released yet another ice cream flavour and quite a unique one at that! The new flavour is called 'All or Nutting', as it is a core flavour it has two ice cream components, they are chocolate ice cream which had the standard chocolate Ben & Jerry's taste to it and the other half was hazelnut ice cream which I thought was rather nice, it was nutty but not overwhelmingly so, and lastly the core. It was simply divine, it was basically Nutella but richer and somehow more indulgent, this had to be my favourite part of the ice cream and I would happily eat a tub of just the core! (I suppose that this would basically be a jar of Nutella)
Overall this is a good ice cream that is unique in comparison to the traditional ice creams and definitely worth a try, particularly if you love Nutella
