Take a break and catch up with some Foodie News, Reviews and Special Mentions from this week.

Products & News

  • Surprising Sources of Salt | I’d like to think I’ve got quite a decent well rounded notion of where you’ll find hidden salts and sugars. Of this list only one entry surprised me – crumpets. I’ve long known processed bread hides quite enough of it but I’d never mentally crossed the bridge over to the delightfulness that is crumpets. Did anything from this list surprise you? | The Guardian 
  • Pulsin Rebrand | You might have spotted a couple of reviews on this blog for Pulsin products under the Beond brand. Well its parent company is getting a major rebrand in celebration of its 10th anniversary. Have a bit of a nosey at the link! | Bakery Info
  • Philadelphia, USA Snacks | Lucky American consumers will now be able to get their hands on a ‘pre-portioned sweet treat’ of Philadelphia Cheesecake desserts and Bagel Chips with Cream Cheese Dips. I’d be super interested to try those out. Consider Germany next, Kraft Heinz? | FoodBev
  • Hot Cross Bun Kit Kat Bars in Australia | Ok, sorry folks. This is one I’m pretty sure most of us won’t be able to get our hands on. Love the thought of a Hot Cross Bun Kit Kat! C’mon Nestlé! Bring some innovation to our shores too please. | The Kitchn
  • Mary Berry Cakes | Fancy a look at the new range of cakes being released in a branding partnership with Mary Berry? Click the link and scroll to the bottom! There’s even a Banana Fudge Loaf in the mix! | BakeryInfo


  • Jamesons Raspberry Ruffles | Are you vegan and looking for some safe sweet treat inspiration? Make sure you add Erin of the Guilt Free Veggie to your reading list! Can you imagine a raspberry flavoured Bounty bar? Well you’ll love her review from earlier in the week! | Guilt Free Veggie
  • Ritter Sport Honey Salt Almonds | Being in Germany I’m quite used to seeing Ritter Sport wherever I go. The selection available can be a bit random but this is one I’ve tried myself and rather liked. Have a peek at Kev’s review and see what you think! It’s also worth noting this has been produced for the UK market as the packaging is in English! | Kev’s Snack Reviews
  • Japanese Screaming Intense Super Sour Plum Candy | Branching out, how do you feel about funky looking sour sweets from Japan? I’m not sure I’d be in the target demographic for a sugared sour pickled plum sweet but I’d definitely give it a go! There’s some fun looking packaging going on too, head over and check it out! | Sometimes Foodie

Special Mentions

  • 15 Random Things About Germany Which I Love | This is such a good list of things that are great about Germany, some of which you might not expect! | Live Work Germany
  • How to Convert Your Driving Licence to a German One | If you’re from outside of the EU, this might be something you need to investigate when moving to Germany! Take a look at this informative post at the jump | Move to Munich
  • Starting to think about Easter | When it comes to British Easter Eggs, it doesn’t get much better than an oversized Hotel Chocolat one – for me, anyway. Pictured below (L to R) I’m currently lusting after this beautiful Mint Hard-Boiled Easter Egg creation (£15) and squeeing at the cuteness that is the Caught On The Hop Slab (£8) and the sweet little Egg On Toast Lick (£1.95)
