A number of Irish companies won awards at this year’s Great Taste Awards in the UK.

One of the most intriguing was Nobó, an Irish company that produces the world’s first ice cream alternative made from avocado, coconut milk, and sweetened with pure honey.

These pots of frozen goodness are handmade in Ireland in small batches. But you don’t have to take our word for how good these are.  This is what the Great Taste Awards, Judging Panel said:

“The judges are wowed by this. There is NO cream in this yet it tastes wonderfully creamy and smooth. Beautifully made – you can taste the ‘love’ in this. There are a lot of grins on the judges’ faces – fabulous.”

We have three great flavours of Nobó; Chocolate & Toasted Almond, Vanilla & Coconut and Fresh lemon.

Sea Gardener Bars

What Marie Power doesn’t know about seaweed probably isn’t worth knowing. You may have come across her talks and foraging workshops as part of the West Wateford Festival of Food.

Marie is now branching out into food production under the Sea Gardener brand. We have two great Sea Gardener bars in store – Coconut & Lime and Almond & Orange.

They are packed with really wholesome natural ingredients and of course all the health benefits of seaweed.
Marie also has a great website with lots of information about seaweed. check out

SynerChi Live Kombucha

A couple of weeks ago one of our customers asked us to get hold of some SynerChi live Kombucha.

It’s an Irish made soft drink; craft brewed using a traditional fermentation method which preserves live cultures and raw enzymes.  So far, so hippy you might think, but wait, it’s not just 100% natural  and only 59 calories per bottle, it’s also delicious.

We have four flavours for you to try, Raspberry & Rosehip, Oranges & Lemon, Ginger & Lemongrass & my favourite Original Sencha.

Tastefully Yours Thai Curry Sauces
