It was a clean sweep for Blackacre Farm

Eggs at the Taste of the West Awards

this year, with owners Dan and Briony

Wood picking up Gold Awards for their

entire 'Free' collection, including their

new Dabblind Free goose egg offering.

Judges described the goose eggs as

"simply delicious - very mellow with a

great depth", while also commenting on

the unique packaging, saying that the

"eggs would make a really lovely gift." Its

Foraging Free quail eggs were described

as "rich and creamy", with a "grassy

flavour." Dan Wood, managing director

of Blackacre Farm Eggs, commented,

"Our five Gold Awards are testament to

the quality and taste that can be achieved

using traditional farming methods, so I

hope they provide a boost for independent

family-run farms across the south west

and beyond."

Farming for over 35 years, the Wood

family and their flocks have achieved

critical acclaim with their Free Collection

of Rambling Free hen eggs, Waddling

Free duck eggs, Foraging Free quail eggs

and Dabbling Free goose eggs, collecting

a Great Taste 3-star award and a Great

Taste 1-star award in 2015, followed by

Hobnobs and McVitie's Gluten-Free Milk

Chocolate Hobnobs. Rolling out in-store

during July, the new range is designed to

give all consumers the chance to enjoy a

McVitie's moment. The high proportion

of naturally gluten-free oats in McVitie's

Hobnobs allowed the recipe to be

converted without any compromise on

the biscuits' signature taste and crumbly

texture. Available in two variants - Original

and Milk Chocolate - the McVitie's

Gluten-Free Hobnobs will feature new

packaging, based on the conventional

McVitie's Hobnobs design.
