In Your Basket: December

We are waving our pom-poms for the best food and drink products out there.

Whether they are just hitting the supermarket shelves, creating a buzz in the industry, winning awards or are just plain ace, we give you a heads up about what you should be adding to your supermarket basket this month.

Green Monkey

2019 has seen a surge of CBD based products hitting the shelves and internet baskets across the UK. Currently making waves in the market is Green Monkey, a Birmingham based CBD drinks brand and their carbonated soft drink infused with 10mg of CBD oil.

Perfect on its own or with a mixer (or even part of a New Year cocktail). Don't be alarmed by the neon green colour, the drink tastes of a variety of mixed fruits.


Zero Water

If one of your New Year Resolutions is to be healthier and increase your water intake then make sure your water is the purest it can possibly be. ZeroWater has created a filter that removes 99.6% of dissolved solids in tap water; the equivalent of purified bottled water.

The 12-cup water filtration jug is the first in its class to have a sealed lid and reservoir, making it possible to pour water that has already been filtered without spilling water that's still filtering. Perfect to kick start your 2020 aims.



Are you in charge of creating side dishes this Christmas, and your mashed potato usually has a little bit too much bite to it? Do you need to impress the family with something a little bit silkier smooth? Then I think the guys at Masha might have just saved your Christmas.

Incredibly versatile, not only is the Masha great for potatoes, it can also mash up other food items, and is quick and easy to clean, too including hummus and guacamole. It also comes with a separate aerator attachment that is perfect for making light, fluffy meringues, cake mixtures, batters and whipped cream in seconds. Mashed Potato - sorted. Trifle - sorted. Nobody will ever know it wasn't you.

Eva's Organics

Following on from the success of their Organic Apple Juice, which has won a Great Taste Award two years running; Eva’s Organics (Juices) have launched their new 100% organic, not-from-concentrate, orchard-style Apple & Rhubarb Juice.

The new Apple & Rhubarb Juice is the third in the range and is made using a delicious blend of UK grown seasonal apples; including varieties such as Discovery, Red Windsor, Russet, and Rajka and the finest organic home-grown Rhubarb.

A perfect non-alcoholic option on Christmas Day.


Cawston Dry

The designated driver this New Year? Cawston Press has launched a new range of sparkling waters for those wanting an everyday go-to that’s less sweet than your average soft drink – but much tastier and exciting than plain water.

Available in two flavours, Ginger & Lemon or Raspberry, they’re a simple blend of British sparkling spring water, a twist of Cawston’s pressed juice and natural extracts.  No added sugar, no artificial nonsense and no shortcuts.

So you can drive everyone home safe, without missing out on a flavourful drink!
