Pip & Nut Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Almond Butter, £1.99 (was £3.99)
Looking to upgrade your weekend breakfast? Pip & Nut’s latest limited-edition flavour is almond butter with dark chocolate and sea salt.

Mr Organic Passata, £2.09
Plant-based brand Mr Organic has launched two tomato passatas – Chilli & Garlic Passata Sauce and Mixed Herbs Passata Sauce. Both made in Italy, using methods passed down by three generations of Italian tomato producers, these sauces have a wonderfully thick texture, contain one of your five a day and are made 100% organically using extra virgin olive oil and sun-ripened tomatoes. The jars are available on Ocado and from Abel & Cole, and are also vegan friendly and gluten free.
El Sueño Watermelon Tequila Liqueur, £18
El Sueño, a sustainable and affordable ‘mixto’ tequila, has launched its Watermelon Tequila Liqueur in Tesco. Gluten free and vegan, the drink is made with real fruit and sweetened with piloncillo, an unrefined Mexican sugar. It’s this that gives the liqueur a subtle balance of fruity and citrusy notes, alongside the fresh undertones that come from agave. The ideal spirit for making some late-summer watermelon margaritas.
Babease creates portable pouches filled with flavours and textures for children aged four months and up. New to the collection is its Greek-Style Yoghurt, Prunes & Oats; Yoghurt, Peach, Rhubarb & Oats and Avocado; and Yoghurt, Spinach & Oats flavours. Complementary to feeding stage one, the pouches introduce little ones to their first taste of predominantly solid foods, while continuing to breast or formula feed. Best served chilled or at room temperature, they can be squeezed into a bowl or straight onto a spoon.

Available in two flavours – Madagascan Vanilla and Belgian Chocolate – the 500g containers offer a thick, rich and creamy custard, which can be heated up or eaten cold. Ideal for those times where you require more than a packet of Bird’s custard powder but can’t be bothered to make your own.

One of the better selections of supermarket ready meals out there, the fresh flavours include garlic mushroom (roasted mushrooms in a white wine and garlic sauce), three cheeses (cheddar, mozzarella and pecorino), and beef ragu (tender beef slow cooked with red wine, beef stock, thyme and garlic). An ideal supper for those evenings when you don’t have time to cook – just add a peppery green salad.
