Today I am reviewing


Achva halva

Vanilla Flavored Sesame Halva.
Having never tried halva before, nor really knowing what it was I’m not 100% sure why I picked up this little tub in the world food section of Tesco, but upon discovering it met my dietary requirements I bought it.

What is it?
A sweet desserty confectionary
Made from sesame paste (tahini?)
Wikipedia says this type of Halva is popular in Poland and the Middle East.

10 Acre When The Cheese Met The Onion Flavour Crisps

Today we are reviewing


Ten Acre Hand Cooked Crisps in ‘The Story Of When The Cheese Met The Onion’.

I have searched long and hard for a dairy free cheese and onion crisp so was excited to find these little beauties whilst ordering from veganstore.  These are completely vegan, gluten-free crisps, kosher, hallal and very yummy. 

The bag is a good wholesome cheese and onion green and I think the design is modern looking whilst maintaining a natural theme. The ingredients are also reassuringly quite natural, onion features heavily and I’m guessing the cheesiness comes from nutritional yeast.

Upon opening the bag you are met with a glorious strong cheese and onion flavour. The crisps are firm and crunchy and have a lovely golden brown colour to them that you expect from handcooked crisps. They are quite small crisps but the quality and taste is a good trade off.

Taste wise they are just simply the cheese and onion you’ve been searching for. Hubbypants and Fussy-Toddler loved them and I wish I had ordered far more packets!

10Acre also make such vegan flavours as BBQ and even chicken which I would love to try.

These cost 80p from The Vegan Store.

5/5 really yummy

Pros: good quality, vegan, freefrom loads of stuff. Really yummy!!!

Cons: too expensive to buy loads of.

Update: you really shouldn’t kiss anyone you care about after eating these…
