Grub Club: The foodies share their best buys
The team at Grub Club Cambridge know their food (and drink). They tell us what’s trending
You & I mixed kombucha case, from £30, youandi.co
Offering an inspired selection of kombuchas, barley waters and botanical teas, You & I is making “purposeful alternatives to mass-produced drinks”. Our mixed kombucha case - you can fill it with your own selection - contained three each of Original, Lemon Lavender, Lime Sea Salt and Ginger, all of which were delicious and refreshing.
Harth Chocolate Peanut Caramel Truffles, £7.95 for six, harthchocolate.com
Made with fairtrade Madagascan chocolate and tasty peanut caramel, these bonbons are AMAZING - a true feast for your taste buds! It is always a delight to find an exciting new range of chocolates and Harth, a micro-batch, ethical, British chocolate company, has created just that.
Made Kind Multi Surface Cleaner, £10 for 500ml (£7.95 on refill subscription), madekind.co.uk
We are trying to be kinder to the planet and therefore looking for new products to clean with. Founded on a desire to formulate “natural, plant-based cleaning products, free from harmful chemicals that damage the environment inside and outside our homes”, Made Kind has created a great Multi-Surface Cleaner, which really works and, blended with lavender, rosemary and peppermint, smells wonderful.
Street Food Box, £12.99, streetfoodbox.world
If you’re a foodie who likes to eat at trucks, pop-ups and markets but hates generating waste through disposable cutlery and crockery, the Street Food Box is a game-changer. A 1.5l food box and durable, microwave and dishwasher-safe knife, fork, spoon and chopsticks set, all stored in a neat, waterproof, washable pouch, it’s perfect for dining out and about while being planet-conscious too.
Piqi Sparkling Kefir, £28.50 for a case of eight, piqilife.com
If you are looking for a refreshing drink that delivers on flavour and works as both a standalone and a mixer, PiQi Sparkling Kefir is a must. Coming in fabulous flavours - including Butterfly Pea and Grapefruit & Cardamom - they are scrumptious. The bonus is they are gut-friendly too, water kefir being “a raw probiotic sparkling beverage, traditionally fermented using a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), sugar and water”.
London Nootropics Adaptogenic Coffee, £15 for a 12-sachet tasting pack, londonnootropics.com
Having seen it on Dragons’ Den we had to try this new coffee. Explain the brand’s founders: “Nootropics are brain-boosters. . . Many have adaptogenic properties, helping your mind and body adapt to physical, mental and emotional stressors and find balance.” Containing different natural adaptogens to help you through each stage of your day, varieties include Mojo (made from cordyceps mushroom and Siberian ginseng, it’s designed to boost stamina and performance) and Zen (containing CBD and ashwagandha, designed to promote peace). Also: they are delicious.
