Trying Snacks from the UK #2 (Collab with Wonderwall 360)

Hello, me again! With another food swap, from another UK blogger, who is also coincidentally called Sara (lol). Sara blogs over at Wonderwall 360. She shares about her life in Sheffield. She also sent me a little themed package about the five senses, so I got more than snacks! I received it a few days ago in the mail, and I couldn’t wait till the weekend to try it, so the lighting for the photos isn’t the best as it’s now dark by 6pm over here.

Among the snacks was a little star necklace, and a silicone beauty blender! I’m curious about how the beauty blender will go haha! It is nice and squishy though.

Now we can get into the foods!!

First off, Sara sent me this bottle of Henderson’s Relish. It looked like Worcestershire sauce to me, but the taste was a bit different. It was a bit sweeter, but it went quite nice with our dinner.

There was some savoury little cakes. I thought it was chocolate inside, but it was more of a savoury taste. Which, after all my sweets from the previous swap, this was probably good haha! They made quite a nice little breakfast snack.

Speaking of breakfast, Sara also sent me some teas. Yorkshire and Chamomile. I’m not the biggest tea fan, so Rory tried them more. He finished his cup, and I…couldn’t. I tried the Chamomile, but tea to me still just tastes like hot water with leaves in it. Which it is pretty much, I just don’t like it. Team coffee for life. Sorry Sara! But Rory did like the teas!

Finally, there was a lovely selection of sweets. The mint cakes were solid mint which threw me a little. That level of mint is quite intense, so we’re slowly making our way through it. The two chocolates from Cocoa Wonderland were the cutest things ever. One was called Turkish Delight, and the other was Campfire. They were solid chocolate, with really yummy toppings. The Turkish Delight, had bits and pieces of said candy on them (Rory had that one). The Campfire one had bits of marshmallow and crumbly things on them (I ate all of that).

That’s all for these posts! Thank you again to Sarah and Sara for doing this fun little swap with me!! Be sure to check out both blogs, they’re lovely!

  1. Niceee

    1. Thank you!

  2. It was so much fun! I should have said don’t eat all Kendal mint at once, it was designed for climbers; lots of Everest climbers have taken it. Idea is it contains lots of sugar for energy in compact space! So it may give you a massive sugar rush!

    1. It was a lot of fun! Haha, that makes sense! I didn’t know what to expect, so I just took a big bite haha! I can definitely see that it would be good for clilmbers 🙂

      1. That’s very funny, it’s survival food, almost like emergency rations.

  3. P.S There is too many Sarah is UK. I’m glad I’m different to most being spelt Belgium way without the H. Vintage Tea Sarah, Sarah is an awesome name though!

  4. This is a really cool idea for a post. I can’t stand ‘normal’ tea, but I have a love for herbal – as long as the flavours are not too weird. I’m always good for coffee as well though. I’ve not relish before – I thought it was Worcestershire sauce as well.

    1. I’m glad you like the post! I’ve tried very few teas, and I’m never able to take more than a few sips. It just tastes too watery and weird to me. I’m a coffee girl through and through haha!

  5. what a cool collab! that relish looks really interesting, how neat to try out some different foods & tea (even if you’re not a tea person lol)

    1. Thanks! I’m always keen to try different foods, even if I dont like Some of them, I’ll still give it a try haha!

  6. I can not do normal tea either so I have Calomile.

    The relish is unique to Sheffield.

  7. Never heard of any of these things before. Love swaps like this, they are so fun xx

    1. Swaps really are so much fun! It’s cool to see what snacks people have on their side of the world 😀

  8. I feel the exact same way as you about tea! With the exception of creamy chai tea, I just can’t get into it. I don’t see the appeal, haha. It seems like everyone else loves tea, though, so it’s nice to know that you feel the same way! I’m always living for coffee haha.

    1. Yay, I’m glad you feel the same way haha! I just can’t get behind tea for whatever reason. I’ve tried a few, and it just doesn’t taste as good compared to coffee 😀

  9. Ooohhh what a lovely package of food 😀 I think tea is a very British thing which lots of Brits love but I’m on team coffee too because I absolutely love lattes!! Xx

    1. Haha, tea does seem to be a traditional British drink. I’m all for coffee too! 😀

      1. Literally my entire family drinks tea and then you just get me with my latte or flat white 😂 xx

  10. Being in the Uk for 3 years already, I’ve never tried any of those haha.

    1. Haha, I’m sure there’s so many different kinds of snacks available, it’d be hard to try them all 😀

  11. I love how different the products are compared to Sarah’s. You get a little bit of everything, savory and sweet lol

    1. It is nice that they both sent me different snacks! Its been so much fun trying all these different foods 😄

  12. This is why I LOVE blogging. This post made me smile! <3

    1. It is crazy how many people I’ve gotten to know worldwide thanks to blogging! ❤
