Buy 3 jars of olives for a tenner

It's the start of the summer holidays, for my son, anyway. So i thought i'd tell you about our current offer, in case you need picnic nibbles, or camping treats.

We are offering any 3 jars of Olives et Al olives for a tenner. They have a long shelf life and are great for days out, just add a few cocktail sticks.

Many people think children won't like olives, but kids love strong tastes (think salt and vinegar crisps, marmite etc). My children both adore olives and will clear a bowl before anyone else gets a look in.

Add some reganas - spanish rosemary crackers to dip in the oil too. Delicious.

Gluten free ? I hadn't noticed....

These Kent & Fraser biscuits have proved really popular with you so i have added to the range. All of the biscuits (both savoury and sweet) are wheat, gluten and soya free, many of them are also dairy egg & fat free too.
Here's an article about them where they fared so well in a taste test, the tester didn't realise they were a 'free from' range........

Tasty Alternative – Food Chain Magazine - “Taste Test”
The Food Chain Magazine did a “taste test” on a few of our products recently ... The taster of this product wasn’t told the product’s free-from pedigree – and didn’t notice!“The lemon shortbread was rich and buttery, and I loved the little two-biscuit individual pack – great portion control and easy to pack in a lunch box” she said.The Stilton option appealed to the male testers on the panel. “These are tangy and really crunchy – they have a robust flavour and I could happily eat several” was the verdict.Inspired by a life-long love of baking and a profound interest in ‘free-from’ foods, Kent & Fraser’s new biscuits mean that food allergy sufferers or anyone looking for a delicious, healthy sweet or savoury snack can now indulge their cravings. The lemon butter shortbread recently won a gold star for its taste, and yet contains no egg, soya, wheat or gluten. For a savoury hit, the Stilton and walnut biscuits are irresistible with a delicious glass of red wine or port, and they offer the perfect way to end a dinner party. And true to the cause these biscuits contain no eggs, soya, wheat or gluten.Article by "Food Chain Magazine"
