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.

Now as you all well know, I am a massive foodie and it felt great to be on the other side for a change – being the student instead of the teacher. However I don’t know much about Nick Nairn himself! So here’s what I’ve found out….
