The Bread Selection Gift Box that we received included the following selection of baked treats:

  • Sweet bread - A classic sweet bread made with sweet spices and which is traditionally used at African weddings. Can be enjoyed toasted (and with butter) or with Nutella.
  • Twister bread - Similar to brioche bread, this one is perfect for sharing.
  • Sponge cake - Simple and so flavoursome. My favourite.
  • Coconut Chin Chin - A sweet snack that is lightly flavoured with coconut.
  • Savoury Chin Chin - The savoury counterpart of Coconut Chin Chin, this one is lightly flavoured with cracked black peppers. Great with a glass of your favourite drink. (Mr.H loved both the versions of Chin Chin).

OGGS Cakes


For the cake loving dad, OGGS has three delicious and moreish cakes.

  • Chocolate Fudge – a dazzlingly delicious chocolate fudge cake.
  • Victoria Sponge – simple, classic and so yummy.
  • Lemon Drizzle – zingy, delicious and so moreish.

All the cakes are vegan friendly and made using OGGS® patented Aquafaba, an all-plant liquid egg alternative. In terms of taste, they taste as delicious as the traditional egg versions. We loved all the three but a big thumbs up to the Victoria Sponge - absolutely scrumptious.
