I got a lovely hamper the other day as a gift from A Taste of Ireland, The Irish Shop at Ocado. Ireland is the latest country to have its national cuisine and food products highlighted in a dedicated section on the Ocado website. The "Irish Shop" at Ocado will for the first time see an exciting range of well-known and loved Irish brands available online. Popular brands such as Barry's Tea, Ballymaloe Country Relish, Clonakilty Blackpudding, Flahavan's, Kerry Gold and Cashel Blue Cheese will be available via the Ocado Website. The range also includes lesser-known but award-winning brands such as Keoghs Crisps and Potatoes, the Foods of Athenry and Carr's Seafood all who won Great Taste Awards in 2013.
There was really a lovely selection in the basket of teas . . . breakfast and gold blend from Barry's Tea, a lovely jar of Fruitfield Old Time Irish Marmalade . . .
Two beautiful Ballymaloe relishes, some Bewley's Gold Roast Coffee, The Foods of Athenry Hi-Fibre Wheaten Brown Soda Bread mix . . .
Some Nood Peppermint Tea, a nice big bag of Flahavan's Irish Organic Porridge Oats . . .
Helen's Brilliant Scone Mix (Gluten Free) and Helen's Linseed Crunch with Cranberry and Almond (wheat free cereal topping) . . . and a nice big bag of Keogh's Dubliner Irish Cheese and Onion Potato Crisps . . .
All lovely and much appreciated. The crisps disappeared on the first day. Naughty me.
