Review – Walkers Hoops and Crosses

Written by Lauren. Posted in Food & Drink, Reviews

I love surprise packages especially when they contain food.  Just as I was about to go out the Postman gave a knock and handed me a pretty funky box.  I opened it up and came face to face with Monty the Monkey and a packet of the brand new Walkers Hoops and Crosses.


Review – French’s Sauces

Written by Lauren. Posted in Food & Drink, Reviews

I live with three sauce fiends.  The Hubby will smother any meal with ketchup, brown sauce, mustard, you name a sauce and chances are he loves it.  The boys have both been having “dippy” with their food from the minute they could ask for it with mustard bizarrely being one of Spud;’s favourites.  We always have a bottle of French’s mustard in the cupboard and heaven forbid if we should run out!

Imagine their delight when French’s got in touch asking us to try their brand new relishes, dressings and sauces.  In the new range there are eight delicious new flavours including two BBQ sauces, two relishes, three dressings and a New York Steakhouse sauce.

Review – Frankie and Benny’s Cocktail Menu

Written by Lauren. Posted in Food & Drink, Reviews

Now when an email pings into my inbox offering me and a friend a 2 course meal with 2 cocktails each I am not going to say no am I?  It was ideal timing because mine and the Hubby’s 5 year Wedding Anniversary is fast approaching and with it being so close to everyone’s “big” birthdays our plans were getting smaller by the day.  Unfortunately there wasn’t a time between the voucher arriving and it’s expiry date for us to arrange a babysitter and head out together so I ended up using it when I went to stay with my parents at half term.  My Mum and I took the boys to the Reading Frankie and Benny’s on a Wednesday lunch time.


Review – Frankie and Benny’s Plymouth

Written by Lauren. Posted in Food & Drink, Reviews

When we were asked to review the new menu at Frankie and Benny’s we definitely weren’t going to say no.  On a Saturday afternoon we popped in to put the voucher to good use.  We didn’t book a table and were a bit worried that we hadn’t, but being only 4.30pm there were still plenty of places to sit.
