Crosta & Mollica, which means 'crust and crumb' in Italian, produces a tasty range of authentic fine Italian baked goods made with simple ingredients. Think traditional piadinas, breads, savoury biscuits and seasonal products such as pannetone and pandoros.
We loved the tarallini (Italian snacks with the texture of a breadstick) and also their piadina (Italian flatbread, which looks and tastes a bit like a tortilla). To get the best flavour out of the piadina, we baked it in the oven for the recommended five minutes, and they came out warm, lovely and flaky. We used ours like tortillas and found they were great for making a wide variety of sandwiches and even as an alternative to tortilla shells for tacos. The verdict - we'll definitely be switching our tortillas out for piadinas moving forward as they're so much tastier!
Crosta & Mollica products can be found across the UK at variety of stockists including Waitrose, Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Whole Foods and Booths.
I love Nairn's products, having recently reviewed the Gluten Free Range, so I was pleased to try their On the Go Fruit & Seed Oatcakes. Packed with fibre and Omega 3, they're great for those looking for a quick and easy snack that's healthy to boot! Best of all, they come in individually wrapped packets, making them perfect for popping into your handbag or briefcase, so you've got a healthy snack to hand when hunger strikes.
Available from Waitrose nationwide and Morrisons in Scotland (RRP £1.39).
