The British Hamper Company | Tuggy Tucks In

I was delighted to be gifted a Luxury Scottish Hamper to review from The British Hamper Company. The packaging is undoubtedly British with mini red post & phone boxes. Unwrapping the box and lifting the lid revealed a whole host of Scottish goodies: Mackie’s Scotch Bonnet Chilli Pepper Crisps, Duncan’s of Deeside Oatcakes, Shortbread House of Edinburgh shortbread, Nudie Snacks Premium Coconut Chips (I’ll tell you now, my favourite item in the box), Coco Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate and Galloway Lodge Poacher’s Pickle & Raspberry Jam.

Umi | Tuggy Tucks In

I was very excited to receive an invitation to review Umi. A fairly new kid on the block tucked away in a basement restaurant in Stockbridge. The entrance was enticing and the seats were quirky and authentic looking as you can see from the image above. Continue reading

RiverBeds Luxury Wee Lodges | Tuggy Tucks In

However I really must commend the family run business for their spectacular hospitality and therefore I am going to share with you how good a time I had there. Continue reading

‘Ham It Up’ Bagel

Bross Bagels, I’d heard bits and pieces about them but hadn’t had the pleasure of getting around to tasting one myself. On a particularly starved day where I didn’t get lunch until 2:30pm, I was confronted with someone else’s Bross Bagel and I knew I had to get there immediately and shove a bagel in my mouth!

Groats | Tuggy Tucks In

Gourmet porridge? I hear you ask, well yes, the absolutely most delicious porridge of its kind!

Fortunately for me, I was then invited to Cafe Milk in Leith to try a combination of Graham’s gold full cream milk and Groats aphrodisiac porridge around Valentine’s Day and I’ve been desperate to consume their delicious porridge combinations ever since!
