Great news in the Daily Mail today. Sean Poulter, Consumer Affairs Editor, tells us that Nestle are the first major confectioner to remove artificial colours, flavours and preservatives from its whole range. they have changed the recipes of 79 products, the last being Nestle Crunch Bar. The article states that more than 80 ingredients in total have been replaced with alternatives, mostly from natural sources such as carrot, radish and lemon.

The Daily Mail ,back in 2005 ,were concerned about artificial colours in Smarties that could cause hyperactivity in children. The paper launched its “Ban The Additive” Campaign in 2007.after research shown normal healthy children fed on additives commonly found in sweets, fizzy drinks and cakes became hyperactive.

Well done the Daily Mail.  (See page 9 of today’s Daily Mail for full article)

What a difference a year makes! January 2011 was snowy, icing and Freeeeezing!!!!

Yesterday afternoon was so warm I was out in the yard, weeding  and netting the bulbs to protect them from our little feathered friends (we don’t have a garden so make do with pots and baskets). My garlic is  two inches high already and the snowdrops are nearly in flower. I love this time of year,the old year with all its mistakes  is behind me and being a Sagittarian, an eternal optimist, I expect a lovely Spring and glorious hot Summer.

Its a typical grey November day in Boroughbridge which means the shop is quiet so I am planning Christmas, making up the hampers and victorian jars which proved so popular last year. You can choose  the contents or purchase something made up already. There is a variety of old fashioned weigh out sweets, retro,tuck shop favourites. Our best seller is a victorian jar filled with a selection of Walkers old english assorted toffees and decorated with ribbon and a festive gift tag. Another favourite is the box with a selectio of fizzy sour sweets.

I have to close now because an order for two hampers has just come in to be completed and ready by the time the customer has finished her Morrisons shop.
