Based in North Wales, The Aberffraw Biscuit Company started out in 2013 and is run by a husband and wife team.
The Aberffraw shortbread is a traditional, handmade shortbread in the shape of a scalloped shell and it's said to originate from the 13th century!
Is this the oldest biscuit in Britain?
In more recent years (quite a lot more) Aberffraw Biscuits have received much media attention, winning Ambient Food Manufacturer of the Year in the Food Awards and an appearance on TV with the highly acclaimed Paul Hollywood.
How's THAT for a claim to fame??
Aberffraw's handmade shortbread's are beautifully buttery and crumbly.
These are LUXURY shortbread biscuits, make no mistake and I'm clearly not the only one who feels this way. Aberffraw's Traditional Biscuits bagged themselves a Great Taste Award in 2018!
But hold up, there's WAY more in Aberffraw's range!
The chocolate Aberffraw shortbread is nigh on impossible to resist, with its rich shortbread and a gorgeously heavy, chocolate flavour.
And the divine lemon Aberffraw shortbread, with lemon zest and juice, is so moreish it's no surprise it's already won a Great Taste Award.
The Bara Brith shortbread is created with tea, spices and raisins, making this a sweet & spicy shortbread and this certainly delivers on quality.
Luckily for you, you can satisfy your taste buds & indulge in Aberffraw's award-winning, handcrafted range and buy online!
You could even treat someone special to one of Aberffraw's super-duper gift tins...if you can bear to part with it, that is!
No one had to bend my arm for me to sample & taste and yes, sample a bit more to write this review, no sir. The only casualty during this review was my waistline and you'll understand why when you try these scrumptious (and special) shortbread's yourself!

The Chapman family are incredibly proud to be part of the rich fishing heritage that Grimsby is famous for and quite rightly too!
With their strong values & superb quality, Chapman's offer a truly scrumptious & utterly unique range of handcrafted fish & seafood dishes.
If you like a little fishy on your dishy, read on!
My hardest job this week was to actually CHOOSE one of Chapman's dishes to review as they all look so darn good!
Using only the very best quality fish and ingredients, Chapman's range varies from luxury fish pies, smoked haddock & breaded fish to prawns, scallops and fillets.
I reluctantly selected the Haddock Bake. I say 'reluctantly' as I also had my eye on the ginormous fish fingers... FOMO.
Firstly, Chapman's sure don't cut corners on size, what a great sized portion this is!
This AWARD WINNING Haddock Bake is full of exciting flavours and for a moment, I feel I'm eating freshly caught fish. The crumbly crushed croutons, broccoli, leek and melted cheese are incredibly mouthwatering. This dish is different, it's exciting & I reckon these Haddock Bakes wouldn't be out of place in a Michelin star restaurant.
And why should I miss out on Chapman's fish fingers??
OK, I admit it...I usually opt for the high street BIG name fish finger and never really thought they'd be THAT much difference.
Oh how wrong I was!
Firstly and yes, childishly, the size amused me. I reckon these jumbo deluxe, fish fingers are equatable to 4 'regular' fish fingers.
Another huge and very obvious difference is that Chapman's fish fingers are PROPER, as in proper chunks of cod, chunks that you can get your teeth into.
Fish finger sarnies will never be the same again as these blow any high street bought fish fingers out the water (so to speak)
If you're rather partial to a fish cake then you should know that Chapman's AWARD WINNING (yep, more awards) gourmet Fish Cakes are handmade using the best fish and carefully selected ingredients.
The innovative flavour combinations such as 'Thai Style Salmon', 'Haddock & Leek' and 'Smoked Salmon & Horseradish' are just a few of the truly scrumptious fish cakes Chapman's create.
I cannot write a review without mentioning Chapman's Classic Fish & Parsley Fish Cakes.
This is THE original Fish Cake...the Fish Cake that started it all off...YEP, the mother of all fish cakes. These Cod & Potato fish cakes are handcrafted and yes, you got it AWARD WINNING!
These guys must be quite literally, tripping over their awards!
Once you've tried and tasted Chapman’s Fish Bakes or Coated Fish products, you will want to try them all.

Been feeling a tad hot under the collar this week after a little box arrived on my doorstep!
Might have been a little box but BOY, it sure was bursting with the most incredible aromas!
Zepice produce handmade artisan Mauritian spice blends, using traditional family recipes that have been passed down the generations and after nigh on a week of getting creative with some of these spices, I thank the lord that these authentic blends have made it through the ages...
Using only freshly ground ingredients, Zepice blends of spices & their authentic curry powders are available in varying strengths depending on your pallet.
I sampled the versatile, Oak Smoked Medium Curry blend and the immensely rich aroma had my mouth watering before I had even laid the table!
What more can I say, other than delectably delicious.
Good to know that each blend is carefully created & prepared to compliment various proteins and you'll find NO artificial colourings, NO thickening agents and NO artificial flavourings in Zepice's range.
Yep, it's ALL natural and is even suitable for vegans AND vegetarians!
The aromatic and authentic, oak smoked curry blend is rich, deep and intense with an exotic burst of flavour. The carefully selected combination of spices ensures that this really DOES taste as good as it smells!
Zepice's oak smoked sea salt is perfect to season your dish or simply to use as a rub to enhance your adventurous Asian creation!
The carefully balanced ratio of green, black, white, pink & green peppercorns in Zepice's mixed peppercorn jar, will ensure your dish achieves its full flavour.
It's pretty clear that Zepice are passionate about their spices and curry powders (I am too now)
There's no excuse NOT to spice up your life with Zepice.
Check out their recipe page for all the inspiration you may need and ENOUGH of those dull dinners!

This week, I came across this fabulous company and I reckon this is going to beee an easy review!
Let's put it this way...no one had to physically twist my arm to sample Keepr's Gin.
Having launched in 2013 in the heart of the Cotswolds, The British Honey Company actively supports beekeepers & the British honey bee, ensuring their future in our environment and with each one of their hives working endlessly to pollinate British meadows & hedgerows, you can guarantee scrumptious and, more importantly, traceable, 100% raw honey.
Now, with not only the most incredible range of honeys and jams under their belt, The British Honey Company presents 'Keepr's, an imaginative & exciting range of handcrafted honey and honey infused spirits!
Taking inspiration from the British countryside, your taste buds will certainly come to life with Keepr's Rum. Gin's & Vodka's.
I sampled (quite a decent amount of) Keepr's fragrant & rather unique Strawberry & Lavender Gin.
If you're a gin lover, like myself, I'm sure you'll find this elegant, fresh n' fruity flavour spectacularly lip-smacking, particularly on the rocks (try saying THAT after 3 samples!)
Keepr's adventurous range includes Honey Gin, Strawberry & Lavender Gin, English Raspberry & Honey Gin, British Honey & Salted Caramel Vodka, Elderflower Vodka, Apple & Honey Vodka, Cotswold Honey Spiced Rum, Christmas Spiced Cotswold Honey & English Vodka and After Dinner Mint & English Vodka.
Sounds tempting right?
Even better, you can buy direct HERE.
You could even treat a special someone with a Keepr's Gin & Jam Gift Set.
As well as being absolutely delicious, by drinking it, I'm supporting our vital and incredibly busy bees and I really love that each bottle is traceable to its hive.
Yep...it's definitely a win, win, win, win from me!

I still find it surprising AND frustrating with the lack of choice when it comes to great tasting, gluten-free treats.
That is, until I discovered SIN!

Thanks to SIN, you can forget those dry and bland tasting gluten-free treats from the past. These artisan bakers have created some terrifically tasty cakes, cookies & tray-bakes with moist treats such as their Shameless Oaty all Butter Flapjack, their Wickedly Fruity, Oat & Nut Granola Bar.

We've heard a lot of good things about this company recently, so decided we should investigate further as to why The Spice Kitchen are a highly regarded, family run, artisan producer, who specialise in freshly ground, authentic spice blends and offer the most wonderful range of high quality, loose teas.

Known in India as 'Masala Dabba's', these tins contain 7 separate containers for the myriad of premium quality & essential indian spices that you need to create perfectly blended dishes. I thoroughly enjoyed experimenting, even attempting a few of Spice Kitchen's great recipes and loved that every spice has its very own little compartment keeping things organised.
The aroma from these spices is immense....It's no wonder it's been crowned 'Gift of the Year 2018!'
Spice Kitchen also offer some unusual gift ideas too, such as cookery lessons, wedding favours, cookbooks and traditional cookware.
