Next week sees 4th July (Independence Day) coming round once again, making it the perfect excuse for splashing out on some all-American foodie treats. Ocado have some fabulous offers coming up from 1st to 7th July on their lovely authentic American products and they sent us through a selection to try out. The delivery man was greeted with squeals of excitement ... and that was just from me !

The first thing that got a big smile from Sophie was the box of Lucky Charms cereal, because apparently it's Zoella's favourite cereal. I've been told I'm definitely NOT allowed to use this one in fridge cakes ! (On 3 for 2 offer, Was £15.00, Now £10.00) (Looking on the Ocado website, they don't have the Lucky Charms with 5 New Clover Hats in stock yet, but they do have "Lucky Charms now with 3 rainbows" for £5 for a 454g box and Chocolate Lucky Charms £5 for 339g)

I love the look of the Reese's Puffs cereal too - eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cup flavoured cereal for breakfast just seems deliciously naughty and it really does taste of peanut butter. (currently £5 for 368g - check back for offers)

Another naughty but nice breakfast option is Pop Tarts, in Frosted Hot Fudge Sundae flavour no less. I remember how excited I was in the 1980s when Pop Tarts came to our shores for the first time, seemingly straight out of the US sitcoms and movies ! They can be eaten straight from the pack or warmed in the microwave and the Madhouse kids love them as an occasional after-school treat. (£3.50 for a box of 8, some varieties on "buy any 3 for £6" offer)

 Staying on the breakfast and/or after-school treat theme, Bisquick Pancake & Baking Mix is perfect for making American style pancakes. According to the pack, it can also be used for Waffles, Ultimate Chicken Fingers, Oven-Baked Chicken, Strawberry Shortcakes, Biscuits or Dumplings (currently £5.15 for 1.13kg - check back for offers)

 They might be rather nice topped with Marshmallow Fluff, but I know  that that is also utterly delcious sandwiched between two digestive biscuits smeared in Nutella as instant S'mores - yum ! (Save 1/3 – Was £2.00, Now £1.33)

You can't have a 4th July celebration without a barbecue so I also received Beaver Coney Island Hot Dog Mustard (can't you just smell the popcorn, candy floss and ocean breeze ?!) and also some French's Classic Yellow Mustard. (Save 1/3 – Was £1.79, Now £1.19)
