- Wow, no more Queen’s speech and now Quality Street wrappers are changing. Christmas really won’t quite be the same again. But whilst our jewelled Christmas treats won’t be quite so shiny anymore we applaud wholeheartedly the company’s commitment to more eco friendly wrapping!
- Well this slipped through our net last year but we won’t be making the same mistake twice. Yum!!
- It’s been all about the Christmas spiced nuts in our homes this week. They are seriously good … have you made any yet? Fab edible gift too…

- The hunt is on for this year’s most topical Christmas cracker joke. Last year’s was a proper snorter: “Why are people cutting back on Brussels sprouts this Christmas? The cost of gas is too high”.
