    Just a heads up for the OPPO fans. I got an email saying OPPO is launching a new flavour, Chocolate and Hazelnut, which should be available in Waitrose this Easter. :)

    Tried it, sooo recommend it. Life is difficult at the moment - funeral - I have been eating a lot of Oppo. Love the salted caramel, and the new Chocolate is heavenly.

    Actually, I am so thankful for Oppo. In the past during really difficult times food has deteriorated to carbs, carbs and more high fat carbs - mainly because they require no preparation.

    My go-to exhausted stress relief meal is now Oppo plus a bag of nuts. With maybe some salami and grated cheese. Quite delicious. So much better than it used to be.

    Thank you Oppo.

    Hadn't heard of this before. Might just have to take a walk to Waitrose.

    The Oppo website is giving out £1 off vouchers, so even more of an excuse.

    Mission accomplished. On offer in my Waitrose too, and they accepted the voucher so £2.74 for the tub. And a 40 minute round trip on foot to get it brought my blood sugar down to 5.1 before eating it.

    Bought the new chocolate hazelnut flavour. Delicious.
