Food: look out for...
Some spreadable cheese (not mentioning any names) tastes synthetic. But not these babies from Butlers. This is real cheese made spreadable - not plasticky processed stuff - and it's free from additives and preservatives. We love scrumptiously creamy Original, but you can also try it with spring onion, wholegrain mustard or cranberry. Perfect for sarnies, salads, bickies or for piling into your jacket spud. A pot will set you back pounds 1.17 from Asda and Tesco.
OK, Le Gavroche Cookbook by Michel Roux Jr (pounds 25, Cassell) will probably spend more time showing off on your coffee table than being used in the kitchen. But the restaurant's been famous for premier league nosh since 1967, so this book deffo knows what it's talking about. And you don't need a degree in the culinary equivalent of rocket science to follow the recipes.
After Fair Trade coffee, tea and cocoa, comes Fair Trade juice. Cartons of Fruit Passion Orange, Breakfast and Tropical Juice show real Cuban farmers (Carlos, Barbara and Juan, as it happens) whose co-ops grow the fruit. It costs a little more (pounds 1.09 a litre), but it's good to drink your OJ (or indeed, your vodka and OJ) with a clear conscience.
