good natured Strawberries Review...



Last week we were asked by good natured fruit if we would like to try some of their strawberries.

Yum yum!!

We are big fruits fans in our house, we usually go for apples oranges and bananas or whatever fruit that is on offer at the time. Strawberries are always classed as a special treat in our house, as a punnet will only last a few seconds with 6 pairs of hands diving in.

Anything other than the usual fruit fayre is always well received in our house, so I knew the strawberries would go down well. We got sent a £5-00 gift card to pick the strawberries up fresh from an Asda store.

We all got to try them on their own...


And then decided to put them with a scoop of ice cream...


And as I've just been on a 8 miles run we had...


Strawberries, ice cream, broken digestive biscuit and melted chocolate...."Oh wow"

About Good Natured range

Good Natured is a range of pesticide residue free fruit, salad, herbs, veg, and potatoes. All of their Good Natured farmers use natural predators like ladybirds to control pests like greenfly which would cause harm to the plants. This natural way of controlling pests and diseases ensures their whole range is the safest it can be and is as Good Natured as they are.

My thoughts

These strawberries are delicious, sweet and so so yummy they are perfect on their own and a great addition to a bowl of ice cream. We all loved them and once I said we could open them they didn't last very long at all.

Priced at £2-00 a pack from Asda

Good Natured let me share one of their recipes to try too...

  • Using a metal spoon, carefully fold in the cornflour. 
  •  Spoon the mixture onto the greaseproof paper in four large mounds, making a slight dip in each one.

Olympic Torch Relay in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire......

Dispite the typical British weather we had a great turn out to see the Olympic Torch Relay in Mansfield.A hour before we left to get a good spot to watch the relay we had a thunder, lightning and a torrential downpour.At one stage there was some kind of lightning bolt that throw some kind of elctric spark from the computer that made me scream and dive under my covers for safety...

The pictures didn't turn out to great because at this stage it started to rain again...














And here I am wearing my Paralympics GB Supporters’ Scarves but you can't tell as with all the rain it was stuck to my head...
