new lines 180515Plamil Orange Chocolate Bar
I wish I had smell-o-vision on this computer – even without opening the pack, this smells amazing! It’s organic and vegan and sooooo tempting!

Organic Quinoa Flakes
Quinoa Flakes can be used in baking and for thickening soups and sauces – here’s a recipe: http://www.healthfulpursuit.com/2012/07/5-minute-banana-chocolate-chip-quinoa-flake-bake/. Quinoa is protein rich and has a low gluten level so some with coeliac disease can tolerate it in their diet.

Meridian Yeast Extract
A vitamin that we meat-eaters don’t normally get in our diets is B6 and B12, so we need to eat foods with them added. Yeast Extract is one of the most delicious ways to get it – I love this stuff!

Sarakan Toothpaste
A lovely natural toothpaste to complement the mouthwash we already stock. It’s recognised by the British Dental Health Foundation and is vegan, with no fluoride or SLS.

Aloe Vera Sun Lotion SPF 25
As I write this, I’ve been very optimistic stocking this today, as it’s pouring down with rain! This is an organic product with jojoba, avocado and camomile giving natural protection against the sun’s rays. We get vitamin D from the sun – just 15 minutes daily is what we need, but we don’t need to cook ourselves at the same time!

Faith in Nature Fragrance Free Shower Gel and Foam Bath
This is a hypoallergenic product, meaning it’s perfectly fine for those with sensitive skin to use. Again, there are no parabens or SLS in this product, it’s vegan and not tested on animals, as are all the products at Hornett Wholefoods.

We have your new favourite snacks in store from today!

Nothing But LHSNothing But. are the main sponsors of National Vegetarian Week next week so we’ve started stocking their range – all at £1.19 a bag. These are really very nice indeed – just fruit and vegetables freeze dried, with no added sugar or salt. I’ve tried the Pineapple and Grape flavour so far and can report that they are lovely! They are vegan and gluten free so I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t be able to eat these. You’ll be able to try them free on Tuesday 19th May when Nothing But are visiting the shop – you’ll definitely want to buy more! Chickpea crisps

Pashmere Chickpea Chips are also in store today – they come in Spinach and Pure Spice flavours. Another really lovely, interesting snack for you to try. They’re 85p for a 50g bag. I’ve tried both flavours and they really have a lovely authentic Indian taste; very moreish!

It’s useless to try and resist either of these lines – you’d better just come in and get them while you can!

Faith in Nature shampooFaith In Nature shampoo and conditioner are making their debut – I’ve chosen a fragrance free range to start with as they have such a large range it was hard to choose! They’re on offer at £2.80 each for 400ml.

We have some really lovely suncatchers from Siesta Crafts in stock, just in time for the sunny weather. We have three circular designs at £7.99 each and some beautifully coloured butterflies at £3.99 each.
