I've recently been sent some tasty savory nibbles which would be fabuous to serve with drinks at any Open House Parties or Get-togethers you might be throwing over the upcoming Holiday period.  I am running out of time and with my recent illness I have decided to tell you all about them at once.  I hope you will all forgive me!  I just want to tell you about them before you finish up all of your holiday food shopping!

Dell'Ugo Focaccia Italiana in two flavours . . .  Cherry Tomatoes & Basil Pesto, and Goat's Cheese & Red Onion.  These light and airy breads are like nothing currently on the market, definitely NOT dense, stodgy or greasy, they even have the traditional baker’s thumb impression on the top!

These are lovely warmed and then cut into little squares, just the perfect size for nibbles with drinks or on finger food tables or appetizer trays.

 Dell'Ugo is the longest established fresh pasta brand in the UK, creating delicious and innovative pastas since 1929. These amazing Focaccia Italiana come in three flavours Goats’ Cheese & Red Onion, Mixed Olive & Tomato and Cherry Tomatoes & Basil Pesto.

Dell'Ugo products are available in Waitrose, Wholefoods, Costco, and online at Ocado.

Wonderful Pistachios from California are perfectly seasoned for a delicious flavour with a satisfying crunch. Sun-ripened and 100% naturally opened, Wonderful only offer the largest available nuts that are equally roasted, without added oil.  This is due to their unique rotary roasting technique.

Wonderful Pistachios not only taste delicious, they are also a great all-natural, healthy snack alternative to fully enjoy while relaxing with friends and family or just by yourself. And above all, they are great fun to crack open!

Wonderful Pistachios are available in four tasty flavours:  Roasted Unsalted, Roasted Salted, Salt and Pepper, and Sweet Chili.  I am awfully fond of the Salt and Pepper ones myself and I have to say our Mitzie is just fond of Pistachios full stop!

Indulge in some Christmas magic with this new sweet and spicy Limited Edition Gingerbread popcorn from Butterkist. Perfectly popped with a deliciously warming flavour they're the perfect way to share the festive spirit.  I really like this, and at 103 calories per delicious 25g serving, it's not a bad snack.  High in fibre and whole grain.  Deliciously gingery this would make the perfect snack for all your holiday movie viewing.  (Let me say, that it can pack a bit of a wallop as some of the pieces are quite, quite gingery.)

 Why not treat the children to a Candyland Sweet Champions Tin over the holidays?  This 500g tin contains an assortment of some thirteen different children's favourite sweeties, and I sare say a few adults love them as well. There is a little something here for everyone and every sweet taste.  Available all over the country at a variety of retailers.

While you are at it why not pick up some stocking stuffers.  Candyland  Fruit Salad Chews and Wham Originals in 108g and 105g packets, perfectly sized for stuffing into stockings.  I have seen them in all the shops selling for about £1 each.   Made with natural flavours and colourings.
