Deloba by Bahlsen

With a good price (at least here in Portugal), these Deloba biscuits from Bahlsen feature a puff pastry with a sublime currant center.
It's a simple buiscuit, but addictive and one cannot eat just one, or should I say just five or six ?

Cadbury Drinking Chocolate

I know that there are these exquisite brands of cocoa and chocolate for making drinking chocolate.
But for someone who likes to drink some hot chocolate regularly, it's not that convenient to pay a high price.
From the few that I know and tried, Cadbury Drinking Chocolate is my favourite, namely because it doesn't have that "sugary" and lack of cocoa feeling that some brands have.
There's one annoying thing though that I have to mention: the tab that is used to pull the foil top, comes off too many times.
I hope that they do something about it.

St. Dalfour - Fruit Conserves

I will say that I'm not an expert about fruit conserves, but I've had my share and tried some known brands, including those that are home-made.
From those, the St. Dalfour fruit conserves are my favourites due to their faithfulness to the flavour of the fruit and the quantity of it.
It's difficult to pick a favourite flavour, but I quite like the "Black Cherries" and the "Golden Peaches".

It Starts Here

Dear readers,

This first post establishes the directives for this blog and gives an insight about what to expect.
In a world with millions of blogs, it will be a challenge to raise from the crowd.
My Gourmet Guide will help you to chose food and drink related goods through the publication of reviews by its author.
On a regular basis I will buy goods and will post my honest review about them.
As this blog's motto states : "I try before you buy".
