Review: Portlebay Kracklecorn Range

A great accompaniment to any summer picnic, bbq or as a snack on the go. A diverse range of flavours that hit savoury and sweet notes in parallel causing a taste sensation in the mouth.   The guys over at Portlebay sent us samples of their entire range, but as there are

Review: Yakult and Yakult Light

You may have seen the new adverts for Yakult on TV encouraging viewers to look after your gut each and every day. And what better way to prepare for the festive gorging than to look after your gut in preparation? OK, so that was a tedious link, but with a valid point. I used to
