You might think dried pastas are a bit of a dime a dozen – with the supermarket shelves stacked high with basic bags of the stuff. No more. On your next shop, make a beeline for Filotea – made according to an ancient recipe from the Marche region in Italy, the end product is reminiscent of how local grandmothers used to make their pasta. Light and easy to digest, its textured surface also helps to absorb any number of sauces, and there are multiple varieties available – from spinach fettucine to classic tagliatelle.
If you’re not a fan of vegan chocolate, these wafer bars might just change your mind. With two editions in the range – M:lk Choc and White Choc – every pack contains two crisp wafers, filled with LoveRaw’s signature almond and hazelnut cre&m and generously smothered in the brand’s vegan chocolate. Enjoy either on their own or use as an ingredient in any number of culinary creations, from cupcakes to brownies, doughnuts to birthday cakes.
Vegan snacks don’t get much better than these dinky packs from health-eating goddess Deliciously Ella. We love the Salted Chocolate Dipped Almonds, which are sprinkled with sea salt and dipped in a thin layer of vegan chocolate, before being dusted with cocoa powder to finish. The chocolate bars are also seriously moreish – think smooth vegan chocolate, roasted almonds, hazelnuts, cashews and a sprinkle of salt.
M&S Cake In A Jar
All three flavours of the M&S Cake In A Jar have been seriously hyped – but we’re pleased to report they’re all worth it. Choose from fruity Raspberry Ripple, rich and indulgent Trillionaire’s or the iconic Colin the Caterpillar. Perfect for picnics with friends or a no-fuss pudding in front of the television, they’re the ideal weekend treat.
Harvey Nichols at Ocado
A trip to a gourmet food hall is always fun, but not everyone has time to make a dedicated trip to spend hours browsing the aisles. Thankfully, Ocado has caught onto the problem, enlisting a range of Harvey Nichol’s products to be sold on its online platform. The highlight has to be the Saucy range – the ideal way to explore and expand your condiment repertoire.
Low in sugar and fizz-free, Soho drinks has launched three new flavours. Cucumber, Mint, Lemon & Lime is fresh, crisp and clean and perfect over ice; Blood Orange, Raspberry & Ginger is a meld of summer fruit flavours and a subtle, ginger finish. And, finally, Apple, Honey and Lemon – is the perfect balance between sweet and sharp. Plus, the final recipe uses honeybush plant extract instead of bee honey to ensure the whole range remains vegan-certified.
Expanding its range of ready-to-eat products, Itsu has added mini-packs of bao buns and hotsu’ potsu noodles to its existing range of gyozas and broths. Next time you’re craving an Asian lunch but can’t get to a restaurant, fall back on these convenient snacks – the bao buns take just 50 seconds to cook in the microwave, while the noodles just require boiling water.
Everyone’s favourite restaurant chain. Wagamama has now launched a new range of meal kits, pastes and sauces, with all profits going towards supporting mental health charity Young Minds.
