A few exceptional products didn’t quite make it into my massive photo recap of the Summer Fancy Food Show 2022 — mostly because I wanted to save them for their own featured post. When I spotted this teabag bearing the likeness of the late Queen front man Freddie Mercury at the booth for The Teabook Teas, I knew it would need its own showcase.

I was enjoying myself at the NCYWFF’s Grand Tasting when I spotted this lovely bottle of Pink Gin, with its equally inviting Pink Label, so I went in for a closer look.  Here’s what I was able to find out about this product  from the Interwebs:

From the country of Spain comes Larios Rosé Mediterranean Flavored Gin; refreshing, smooth, and bright with local Valencia citrus. The flavors perfectly encapsulate the taste of the Mediterranean with citrus fruits rounded off with the perfectly sweet taste of strawberry. Silky and smooth with a predominantly strawberry finish.

I think this spirit is ideally suited for a  Gin Fizz! If you can’t find Larios intoxicating pink treat in your local liquor store, you can by it online Here.

The simple pleasures of enjoying a bowl of cereal with milk has returned to my life recently, thanks to a line of shelf-stable, plant-based milks from Koita, a natural foods company based in Italy (check out my review of Koita’s Organic Coconut Milk at This Link). This week I am reviewing Koita Oat Milk, made from Italian oats and water, and fortified with vitamins and calcium. I’ve reviewed oat milk-based beverages on the blog before and found them to be quite delicious, and ideal as a milk-substitute in smoothies and shakes, thanks to its creamy texture that’s very similar to dairy milk.
