Lily & Lime Teacake Shopper Bag

Remember teacakes? Resplendent in their kitschy red and silver foil packaging and yellow cardboard box, they were the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea. After all, what's not to love about a confectionery item that combines chocolate, marshmallow and biscuit in retro-presented individual portions? Sadly, they're not often seen these days, except on dusty shelves in dodgy newsagents where, even though you might be sorely tempted, you know full well they won't be as good as you remember.

If you want to honour the humble teacake and its iconic appearance, then this shopper bag lets you show off your appreciation for this sweet British treat without fretting about any calorie-related implications. The teacake design has a foil-like finish and is printed on a cotton bag, making it practical but stylish, and much more dapper and eco-friendly than carting round plastic carrier bags. It's £18.95, by Lily & Lime.

  1. Being partial to a good teacake (and buying far too many of them from chippies in my Edinburgh student years), I do love this. I think the artist is Gillian Kyle: http://www.gilliankyle.com/. She's got a nice line in Scottish inspired goodies ranging from Scottish Pride bread to Scottie Dogs!

  2. Chippies that sell teacakes? Wow. Can you convince my local to start stocking them, please?

  3. They sell teacakes at Sainsbury's, I bought some last week! Agreed though, they are little packages of awesome.
