Chris started putting these with his infamous full english at weekends. And I can tell you, they’re SO much better than having pork sausages or bacon. Like seriously! They’re just as tasty. He makes them slightly smoky by grilling them on the George Foreman, and they’re better fat-wise too.
You can get them in Aldi – they’re about the same price as pork sausages. I love having these with his garlic scramble, toast, mushrooms, rocket and perhaps some tomatoes too. Give them a go and thank me later!
Livia’s has a range of treats – all vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. Whilst I don’t live with these dietary requirements, I do still often look in this section to see what’s new. Sometimes, you really can’t tell the difference – and you can find some fab treats!
Livia’s Dunx were by far our favourite of all the treats. Each individual pack contains 3 soft biscuits, with a little pot of nut butter dip. Th biscuits aren’t overly moist, but the because there’s dip it doesn’t matter really. The nut butters are really creamy, fab butters and there’s plenty! They are a little pricey at roughly £2 per pack – but they are a great snack, and definitely worth treating yourself every now and again. My housemate loves having these every now and again!
Jesse James American Style IPA
This was another Aldi find. I’ll admit, I did pick it up because the bottle looked cooler than the one chris chose. Yes, I’m an adult haha. But the bottle is pretty cool isn’t it?! The IPA itself is light and refreshing – medium sweetness and bitterness. It’s a great beer! At about £1 a bottle, we’ll definitely be getting more of these in.
On the subject of pizza…this creation is ingenious. We tried this at the recent summer press event. The in-house team have many people who live a gluten-free lifestyle, and therefore they wanted to create a twist on a pizza they could all enjoy. Bring in the Meat’zza. It’s a meat base! Yep, you read right. Pizza toppings on meat.
The pork base is mild, not overly herby, and a great texture for a pizza. Add the toppings and it really does taste like a pizza. The creator said she often has one with her partner, half each with salad – and that sounds like an awesome dinner! Keep an eye out for this for sure!
