Light Snack boxes from Philadelphia...

Snacks on the go are a summer thing for sure.. when the weather is nice it's lovely to pack up some goodies and have a picnic somewhere... I mean eating outside is the best when the bugs play fair! 
These a pack of three individual snack boxes from Philadelphia, so easy to transport, handy enough to recycle the box and still get a bit of a crunchy treat in your day! Anyone tasted them? x

Free From Ice Lollies - Dunnes

It's easy to get sucked into the 'free from' = better for you marketing... These 'choc ices' from Dunnes are loaded with sugar, so one to watch when you're looking at the 'healthy' ranges in supermarkets... I know there's people who can only eat these and it's great that there's a selection out there now but for people like me who can get suckered into buying stuff, it's one to watch!

Turkey steaks from Aldi...

Hard to get these, they're snapped up pretty quick but I have tried the Cajun glaze one and can confirm they are YUM! Grab 'em when you can and pop them in the freezer, honestly they're SO handy... you can add your veggies, baked potato or a salad, and for a couple of SmartPoints you'll have a fab lunch or dinner! Also Irish produce so winning! Anyone tried the Thai style one? x

If you like Pina coladas...

Admit it you sang that didn't you? Every now and then products come out and I see them knowing they'll be high in sugar so I know they're just not for me... Since my love of gin has grown over the years, pina coladas are relegated to the holidays of my 20s when I thought I was ever SO sophisticated! God bless me but I do still love the taste of them unlike many of the drinks from my youth... so this limited edition intrigued me! Brace yourselves... the 450g tub is 25SP now think of your Greek yoghurt and the skinny syrups you can lash into it! I'm not saying don't eat it but normally I wouldn't even bother pointed things like this for myself but curiosity got the better of me... 100g - 5SP

Anyone tried em out?

Stonebaked Thin & Crispy Base - Dunnes

Spotted this Stonebaked Thin & Crispy Pizza base in Dunnes... if using wraps as a base isn't for you... they can be popped in the freezer too! Load it up with all the free stuff... passata, mushrooms, caramelised onions, tomatoes, spring onion, peppers, courgette and even slices of chicken breast... then point your cheese and you'd have a whopper pizza! Anyone tried them out? x

Breakfast bars...

Not everyone can face porridge in the morning and for a long time I didn't have my breakfast until well past 11am and that's one bit habit I had to change... These might get your metabolism into the habit of waking up a little earlier until you can face a breakfast... Loads of flavour to choose from and handy for the gym bags or just bringing out when you're having a cuppa somewhere... 
SPs are per bar and note all the bars are different weights...
Anyone got a favourite? x
