I’m a Tabl Community Founder (check out my sweet new badge on the sidebar!) and was lucky enough to attend their #atthetabl event (did you see their amazing invite?).

There were tons of food bloggers (new and old) plus tons of companies showcasing their products, some of which have launched as recently as this year!
So here are my favourites and why you need to know about them.
Their drinks contain Cayenne pepper… As you can imagine, it gives it a kick. Not an unpleasant one, it makes every sip interesting!
Nix & Kix come without artificial preservatives, no refined sugars and no fizz. Current flavours are Rich Mango & Zingy Ginger, Cool Cucumber & Fresh Mint and Succulent Peach & Smooth Vanilla. The combination of flavours and ingredients give Nix & Kix a fresh taste.
It’s more like a mocktail in a bottle. Perfect for non alcoholics like me!
I love travel. I love chocolate.
Introducing Cocoa Hernando, a range of travel inspired chocolate buttons. The current range includes raspberries (England), Mandarin (China), Masala Chai (India) and Pink Diamond Salt (Himalaya). Definitely unique (I’ve never heard of pink diamond salt), the masala chai is packed full of spice, giving it a warm taste.
“Less calories than an apple”.
You had me at ‘less calories’. Oppo ice cream is made from fresh milk, cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, stevia leaf and a super fruit. The current range includes Salted Caramel with Lucuma, Madagascan Vanilla with Baobab and Mint Choc Swirl with Spirulina.
If you’re going to have ice cream, make sure it’s guilt free with Oppo. Here’s how it compares to other ice creams.
Spice Drops provide the convenience of powdered spices in liquid form.
The current range includes everything from lemongrass and cinnamon to paprika and vanilla. They can be used in curries, baking and easily applied to chocolates which I tried! This also eradicates the problem of trying to dissolve powered cinnamon in tea, an aid for weightless.
They also have a 3 year shelf life too, much better than powders!
Chins Kitchen make bespoke Indian inspired cakes, free from artificial additives and preservatives. They also come beautifully packaged, perfect as (tasty) gifts!
The blend of spices produces a terrific aroma and fragrance of flowers. I had the pleasure of trying the chai spice nankhatai (shortbread biscuits) and Cardamom, Rose and Pistachio(Gulab Jamun) cake. The latter was super light, fluffy and still (dare I say it) moist.
Chocolate, truffle and macaroon fusions never tasted so good. Find a range of exotic flavours and spices inspired by the East.
This was chocolate would you believe…
And just look at these macaroons…
