The great British summer is just around the corner, which hopefully means it’ll be sun hats and factor 50 lotion at the ready (we’re due a good one, don’t you know…) With the sunshine always comes a raft of delicious refreshments, including iced summer cocktails and of course the obligatory Solero.

I have a confession. I secretly spy on people in the supermarket and watch what they are putting in their shopping trolleys. I think I have shopping trolley envy. Last week, I watched a woman pile pizzas, ready meals, packets of biscuits and jars of pasta sauce into her trolley, with not a care in the world.

Did you know that nearly 8 in 10 people fantasise about having a sweet treat at least once a day? I would have to admit to craving something sweet a number of times each day and usually succumbing to that urge!
