Thanks to everyone who has sent me products this month and last. Here is a run down of what I have received.
Teapigs Matcha Green Tea
I am a fan of Teapigs and this is an attractive little product. Easy to make and it has slimming properties apparently. Always grateful for a Teapig product to add to my tea collection.
Nakd ‘Fancy a Break’ box
I was sent a lovely little gift box from Nakd containing hand cream, a mug and tea bags and a bag of Chocolate Orange Fruit and Nut Bits. The ‘Bits’ were very tasty and a more health conscious snack than chocolate (although I won’t be giving up chocolate…)
Matcha Green Tea Kit Kats
Continuing with the Matcha Green Tea theme…These were sent by a friend who had been on a business trip to Japan. You can read about them here.

Every so often, something comes along that really excites me and I start developing a bit of an obsession. It doesn’t happen a lot but when it does, I’m unstoppable and get really involved with my new passion. I’m the same with food but I don’t think I’ve got so excited about a range of food products for a long time.
It’s not a new discovery, they have been around for a long time but I have only just delved into the world of what is essentially a huge craze amongst similar food geeks. I’m taking about the crazy selection of Japanese Kit Kats! From the relatively dull to the completely insane! Would you believe there are such flavours as Soy Sauce (currently the most popular variety in Japan), Green Tea, Sweet Potato, Water Melon and Salt just to name a few.
Unbeknown to me, there is already a crazy underground world of Kit Kat collectors. Food bloggers, food geeks and the simply insane all over the world are after these treasures and have been known to pay upwards of £200 per bar for those more difficult to get hold of.
I have decided to join the madness and make it my mission to try as many Japanese Kit Kat flavours as I can.
If you love a geeky foodie project as much as me, you might be interested in my progress so I will post my finds and thoughts on here. In the meantime, if you are able to offer any help by way of where I can get my hands on some of the more unusual offerings I will be most grateful.
Now, I’ve sacrificed my lunch break to write this and it’s made me hungry so I best go and buy myself a kit kat!
