LOVE IS IN THE AIR


If there’s one true love that we all share each February, it’s got to be food and drink. These beauts are good enough to


share with a significant other – or console a broken heart

1. True love Our Honest Foods Snack Box, £9.99 per month Flowers wilt, chocolates get snaffled – so why not choose a gift that keeps on giving? (Delayed gratification and all that…) We suggest giving a monthly subscription to our new favourite snack box, Honest, instead – for what’s not to love here? Packed with the best of British nibbles, they're the babies of three Bath graduates, keen to get the nation eating quality snacks. The perfect desk stash for those 3pm cravings, they'll serve as a reminder of your turtledove long after Feb's been forgotten. Order online. ✱ www.ourhonestfoods.com


2. Achy breaky heart Thomas. J. Fudge’s Deep Black Charcoal Hearts, £2.65/130g If you were to ask us what our perfect Valentine supper would


be, it would probably start with half a dozen oysters, followed by a mains of pork belly with truffle mash, kale and port gravy. And for pud? A cheese board, of course. Yes, it’s hard to make cheese romantic, but not so the crackers, and we’ve found the perfect option here – they're even heart-shaped. These charcoal snaps are the perfect match for a ripe, stinky Brie, crumbly Wensleydale or robust Cheddar. Available in Waitrose stores in Bath and Bristol or online. ✱ www.thomasjfudges.co.uk


3. Cheers to that Tipplesworth Cocktail Case, £185 Everything's better with booze, right? Tipplesworth cases contain all that a cocktail lover needs to mix, stir and shake their way into a loved-up frenzy. We love this gin- based combination, The Bramble Case, complete with everything from the hard stuff to the shaker,


strainer, tumbler glasses and recipe card. Plus, the dashing tweed case that it comes in is enough to make anyone swoon. Available in store at Harvey Nichols, Bristol and online. ✱ www.harveynichols.com


4. Love sick Lick The Spoon Chocolate Love Bugs, £4.95/70g Single or loved up, Valentine’s Day without chocolate is like slapping cupid in the face with a wet mackerel. We’re head over heels for these creepy crawlies from Corsham-based chocolatiers Lick The Spoon, each with their own devilishly decadent centre. Choose from dark chocolate with Champagne truffle, milk chocolate with salted caramel or white chocolate with raspberry. If you’re single, go wild and snaffle all three – and if you’re trying to impress someone, just dig out the Spanx and make sure they share.

Available online and at The Mall Deli in Clifton Village. ✱ www.lickthespoon.co.uk


5. Hot stuff The Spicery Favours, £2/15g If this year’s V-Day is the day (and, yes, we do mean the day that you’re planning on popping the big question), then we’re already one step ahead. Over at The Spicery in Bath, James and his team have come up with four Wedding Favour concoctions to send your guests away happy. Whether it be a gentle spice blend of rose petal and lemongrass tea, chilli chocolate (for the best hot chocolate) or a naughty-but-nice aphrodisiac blend of cinnamon, cardamom and black pepper, each personalised pouch comes with the names of the betrothed lovebirds and the date of their special day. Now say after us: I do. Available online. ✱ www.thespicery.com
