imk-australia-wild

Australian Wild was a great discovery. It’s a brand of native foods that came about as a result of the owners involvement in social activism in protecting the Australian bush and its biodiversity. We’ve been using the native spice (a blend of native bush tomato and mountain pepper berry) over lamb and fish. I’m planning on using the wattle seed in some biscuits.

imk-ginger-beer

I’m over ciders, and now trialing all the ginger beers on the market. This one called Brookvale Union by 4 Pines Brewing is a favourite so far.

imk-yorkshire-tea

When we lived in the UK I got in the habit of drinking Yorkshire Tea every day. It’s great to see it’s now half the price it used to be and in stock in major supermarkets.

spiral-oils

Spiral Foods has an exciting range of Mediterranean inspired dip and toss oils, made from 100% extra virgin olive oil. They come in three flavours: sundried tomato and basil, rosemary and roasted garlic, and basil and Parmesan. I wrote a review about them.

imk-sugo

I’m also trialing Spiral Foods sugo range, which comes in garlic and basil, primavera, and arrabbiata. They are very versatile and we’ve used it in casseroles, baked chicken and curries. Of course, it is packed full of flavour and only made from natural ingredients.

imk-rice-syrup

I bought this Spiral Foods rice syrup to try in a few recipes that I had kept. It is very mild tasting, so you could use it instead of honey or golden syrup in a recipe.

imk-butter

I’ve loving this organic, grass-fed butter which we get as part of our organics delivery (Farm Fresh Organics) every couple of weeks. It’s from Organic Times.

imk-sauerkraut

Matt likes this organic sauerkraut from Eden Foods. It is fermented using traditional methods and only using cabbage and sea salt. We tried making our own, but it didn’t work out, so this is the next best thing.

Geronimo Jerky is a Brisbane based beef jerky company that specialises in producing the best beef quality jerky. The jerky is gluten free, low in fat, low in carbs and use no artificial colourings, preservatives or additives. These three are without chilli.

griffiths-coffee

I tasted Griffiths’ Just Fair Coffee and Mundial coffee and wrote a review about it. It’s fair trade and organic in a resealable tin.

imk-cacao-nibs

I’m planning on adding cacao nibs to trail mix and muesli when I get around to it. This is the first time I’ve bought Banaban’s raw cacao nibs.

imk-paleo-hero

I’ve been enjoying Paleo Hero’s Primal Choc Granola. It reminds me of lamingtons with the cacao powder and shredded coconut. Yummy.

imk-vege-chips

These popped Vege Chips are new on the market and come in three flavours: lightly salted, lime chilli and cheese. They are a very more-ish treat.

mork-hot-chocolate

The absolutely delicious Mork Hot Chocolate. I can’t say enough good things about this, but I encourage you to try it. It’s the best hot chocolate I’ve ever had.

smooze-coconut

We’ve been loving the new simply coconut Smooze. You pop them in the freezer and have a ‘healthy’ creamy snack – perfect for hot summer days. They are made from freshly pressed coconut milk.

hills-cider

I continue to drink ciders and at the moment The Hills Cider Company is my favourite. The cider has no added sugar or concentrate – important factors in finding a good tasting genuine cider. I also tried three ciders at the Fluid Festival.

oz-tukka-herbs-spices

This one was a present – lots of interesting Australian flavours to try by Oz Tukka.

walkers-tin

Another present with a beautiful tin – Walkers shortbread.
