“Yes, That’s it! Said the Hatter with a sigh, it’s always tea-time,” Lewis Carroll – Alice In Wonderland
The Mad Hatter was certainly right, it is always tea-time and with a cup of tea, or coffee if it is your preferred elixir, comes the need for a little something to snack on. Wildsprout has a wide selection of snacks for you to enjoy, from the simple cookie or rusk to indulgent delights for you and your guests to savour. Whatever you might be craving, whether it be sweet or savoury, we have you covered for healthy tea-time snacks.
What Do I Offer my Guests at Tea-Time?
When serving your tea-time snacks you should offer both savoury and sweet snacks to your guests.
Finger sandwiches with various fillings form the savoury element of a classic tea, while a selection of cakes, brownies, muffins and biscuits finish it off with the sweet element. But boy oh boy this sounds like far too much work when all you want is a cuppa and a ‘bikkie’! This is where Wildsprout comes to the rescue!
The Good Ole’ Sarmie
The sarmie, or sandwich if we are more formal, is always welcome at tea-time. Healthy and filling, afternoon tea finger sandwiches and savoury snacks are the most traditional accompaniment for this age-old institution of tea-time. Try making some delicious cucumber and cream cheese or egg salad sandwiches with fresh bread from the Wildsprout bakery or indulge yourself with some black forest ham or prosciutto. The wonderful thing about these is that they work equally well for children’s parties as they do with adults, and you can make sure everyone gets something healthy before they take in the sweet treats we’ll mention later.
Sweet Indulgences & Treats
Sweet indulgences, what can be said – we all love a treat from time to time and there is no shortage of healthy sweet treats in the Wildsprout pantry. Our delicious Grain-Free, Buttermilk, Cranberry & Orange and Seedy Spiced Rusks are perfect for traditional South African rusk dipping. This tasty range is free from gluten and refined sugar and some are dairy free and vegan too.
If rusks are not your thing then we have got you covered with delicious Cranberry & Macadamia or Almond Biscotti or Peanut Chunk, Chocolate, Ginger or Oat & Cranberry Cookies. Also available in the Wildsprout pantry are the indulgent Cravings Bakery Double Choc Chip or Apple & Fig Cookies.
Then our speciality – healthy sweet treats and cakes. From Billionaires to vegan carrot cake, there’s something for everyone (always gluten and refined sugar free)
Whatever your best tea-time snack, you’ll find it or you can make it with ingredients available online or in-store at Wildsprout, with our wide range of pantry sweet and savoury snacks and biscuits, your afternoon tea can’t be boring. There is no excuse not to have the best tea-time ever!
