ANNA’S FOOD PICKS
September’s must-haves from food and reviews writer Anna Lawson
Cecily’s vanilla & dark choc Lovely
1 Little Bites
(162g) £5.95, cecilys.co Made from creamy, coconut-based vanilla-flavoured ice cream and covered in thick chocolate, these little bites are perfect for a snack for one, a treat for kids or a little something sweet after dinner.
English Cheesecake vanilla
2 with Lotus Biscoff
(2 x 115g) £3, Sainsbury’s
Rich, creamy and indulgent, these slices are topped with Lotus Biscoff spread and crumbled Lotus biscuits, and have a thick, crunchy biscuit base.
Bertinet Bakery sliced loaves
(500g) from £1.95, Waitrose Sourdough bread is easier to digest than other types thanks to the slow fermentation process that breaks down the gluten. Bertinet Bakery’s special technique for achieving softer, springier bread makes this a stand-out loaf – great for packed-lunch sandwiches.
Stoats chewy roasted nut bars
(pack of 4, 160g) £2.50, Sainsbury’s I’m not usually a fan of cereal bars, but these vitamin-packed oat and nut bars are ideal if you’re on-the-go. The dates give them a nice sweet, squidgy, stickiness, and the mix of chia, pumpkin and sunflower seeds add some crunch. They’re gluten-free, too.
Yondu vegetable umami
(150ml) £4.35, Amazon Fermented from organic soya beans and eight vegetables, this 100% plant-based alternative to stock cubes is a great way to give an umami boost to vegetarian and vegan dishes. Just a teaspoon adds a nice hit of savouriness to your cooking. I enjoyed it in a simple bowl of noodles with a good drizzle of soy sauce.
