There are so many sayings that relate to food and drink; “the proof of the pudding is in the eating”, “you are what you eat”, “bread always falls butter side down” and “there’s no use in crying over spilled milk”.
We can all relate to these sayings, because the proof of the pudding is definitely in the eating, and we are what we eat especially if it’s filled with carbs! However, the bread never falls butter side down as we’ve usually devoured it before it hits the floor, and we do occasionally cry over spilled milk, but only if it involves a few chocolate martinis!
We love springtime when the launch of brand new food and drink products hit the stores. Consequently, we have complied these delicious options below…
