Review: Picnic Essentials*

I know what you're thinking, a picnic at the end of September? Who on Earth would do that? Well last year, we proved that having a panic doesn't always mean going to a park on a sunny day. Picnics can be done in your own garden, in your room, off peak zoo times, anywhere that tickles your fancy to be honest.

Okay, I know we called this post picnic essentials, we all know about the sandwiches, juices and apples, but we're on about the good stuff: chocolate, fizzy drinks and sweet treats!


Doisy & Dam Chocolate*

This chocolate brand is definitely the greatest alternative for healthier treat to add to your picnic. The many different ranges of flavour, many free-from choices and healthy ingredients. I, Jessica, am not the biggest fan of dark chocolate but the unique ingredients have made it all the difference.


Tenzing Natural Energy Drink*

I know what you're thinking, energy drinks are not a good idea. They're full of crap that you probably shouldn't be drinking? Well with this energy drink everything is made from natural products and practically made from only 8 ingredients and nothing more.

We actually had these when we were walking around the zoo and it was definitely needed for a booth of energy.



Nothing beats a homemade treat - and these are super easy to make and with only a few ingredients and really easy to use different alternatives to suit every need.

What are your picnic essentials?

  2. I've been on a total carb kick for the past few months, so I'm totally going to try out those puff pastries! And there's nothing lovelier than relaxing and eating chocolate, is there? I'd certainly rather picnic when the weather is cool (but not cold!) than in the dead of summer, too!

  4. Ohh intrigued by the 'free from' chocolate, do you they a dairy free option?
    And you're right, you can have a picnic anywhere, my boyfriend and I pack picnics and have them in the car after we've driven somewhere, even in autumn and winter!

  8. My boyfriend and I once planned a picnic in Oxford after our exams were done but what happened when the day arrived?! The heavens opened and it was way too wet to even contemplate going outside! Instead we had a floor picnic on my bedroom floor which was still lovely! The chocolate bars you've been sampling sound fab, I am a big dark chocolate lover (sorry Jessica!) so they're right up my street! Thank you for sharing this!

    1. Awww that sounds so sweet, picnic are just as good inside as they are outside right? I just can't find myself to love dark chocolate but if I had to have them this is close enough to liking it to me!

    I don't have enough picnics. I have a really cute picnic basket too that doesn't get out enough, I need to rectify this!

  10. That Natural Energy drink actually sounds rather nice - although I'm not normally a fan! Doisy & Dam Chocolate sounds literally incredible, I love the little mason jar and your "food flat lay" is so cute - as per usual!
