Woolworths TASTE



“The only way I can improve on one of these is when I sneak the almost empty Nutella jar from the cupboard before anyone else gets to it, add hot milk to the jar and shake it up for the best ever hot chocolate to go with the brownie. But a great cup of coffee will do, too.”


“ It has coffee; it has cornflakes. Therefore, it’s breakfast”
– Abigail Donnelly
