Foodie Penpals - August Reveal

I am always so excited to get my foodie penpals parcel through the post! Everyone is always so thoughtful and I love the goodies that I get. This month the lovely Rebecca from reallynicefood sent me this box of tasty food. I tucked into the Mr Trotter's pork scratchings as soon as they arrived, as I do have a fondness for savoury snacks! I shared them with my son, and the packet was soon gone. For pudding yesterday, we shared the parkin, something which I had never tasted before. It was like a rich treacly ginger cake - seriously yummy. The pop-a-cob looks like fun, which we have yet to try - saving it for movie night. Lastly, a jar of blackcurrant & lavender jam - sounds very interesting. I may bake some bread over the weekend to try this jam out. Thank you Rebecca!
