Summer Good Food Show

So me and my Mum decided to head over to the Summer Good Food Show in Birmingham yesterday, I've never been before but friends and colleagues have told me how great it is so I thought this would be the year we tried it.
The show was really great, I drove and I would really recommend getting the train or being dropped off by the other half as I was unable to try the alcoholic samples, and trust me there were alot of them. I was beginning to worry I would be carrying my Mum home, toffie vodka, champagne, cider naming just a few on offer to sample as you enter the hall.
I tried so many different chutney's, fudge and even Apple Crisps!!! Nothing added and 1 of your 5 a day, worth a sample if you see them anywhere. So let me show you what I bought -

I paid £7 and have found it online here -
Rubis (chocolate * velvet * ruby) 50cl -£6.99 but you have to buy 6 ekk!

I did have a little sip of this at the show and was suprised how much it tasted of chocolate. It looks like redwine but poured over ice it is a slow drink for a summers night, I'm looking forward to cracking it open :-)

My second purchase is from Ice Republic, this product is the answer to my cocktail problems! I love strawberry daiquiri but out in town they are around £7 each and to make one your self can take time and even more money. I had seen this product online but never purchased as I was worried it wouldn't be as nice as a fresh cocktail. I had a sneeky sample at the show and oh how I was wrong!


I paid £7 and I have found it online here -

I haven't tried the pack yet but the instructions tell you to fill up to one line with water and to another line with white rum, shake and freeze! It says to freeze for 6 hours before serving, as soon as I have tried it I will post some pictures and a better review.

I'd love to know if you have tried these and let me know what you thought to them.

More posts coming this week :-)

Take care
