The evening kicked off at 7pm, so mums were raring to go after no doubt a stressful bedtime routine. Do you think our mums were ready for a glass of fizz and some nibbles? You betcha!

We had a good range of products to test and our mums couldn’t wait to get started. All laid out on small tables and armed with their feedback questionnaires they set about demolishing the tempting treats and it was fabulous listening to the enthusiastic debate over the branding, packaging and taste.

Lots of laughter and mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm! sounds coming from the room. So much so, one of the community groups (folk music) using the centre popped in to see what all the racket was about, they left full cheeked and appreciative of not only a gaggle of mums in good spirits but also the opportunity to taste brands they had never heard of!

Here are some of the comments from our tasting group

“Love, love, love this product. Tastes amazing” – Kettle Chips Cheshire Cheese, Red Wine & Cranberry flavour

“Lovely, expensive looking & classy” – Han Sloane Hot Chocolate

“Refreshing, easy to drink. Be a lovely summer drink” – Blue Nun Rivaner Reisling Wine

“Interesting concept, evokes family company rather than luxury brand” – Hans Sloane Hot Chocolate

“Lovely novelty aspect with gold flecks, lovely for special occasions” – Blue Nun Sparkling Wine with 22carat Gold Flecks

“Old fashioned” –Barley Cup

“Very pricey, would probably only buy on offer” – Tyrells

“Expensive but well worth it as a luxury product” – Hans Sloane Hot Chocolate

“Simply YUM!” – Hans Sloane Hot Chocolate

“Lovely blue bottle, nice, classy label” –  Blue Nun Rivaner Reisling Wine

Our mums rated each product and the overall winner was Hans Sloane Hot Chocolate.

Thanks to ALL the brands who took part and our lovely mums too!
