Review: Roots, Fruits & Flowers
Roots, Fruits & Flowers
1137 Argyle Street, Finnieston G3 8ND
I was in need of nutritional yeast and was going to make a special stop on the way home at Whole Foods, when I remembered that Roots and Fruits would probably have what I was looking for. I don't visit this shop enough but whenever I do, I'm reminded of just how good their selection is for a small shop.
I managed to find the nutritional yeast without any issues (it's great for giving things a cheesy flavour, in case you're wondering what it's for! You can use it for macaroni cheese if you're avoiding dairy, mixed in with blended cashews for a cream cheese substitute or on kale for crispy cheesy kale) and also got tempted by the Uber Bars at the counter. I thought I'd tried Uber Bars before but after eating it, I don't actually think I had - they're made in Glasgow and are made from raw dried fruit, nuts and seeds. I got a chocolate topped tropical one and it was amazing. So delicious, felt a bit indulgent and really pepped up my afternoon.
I like having a browse of this store as I feel like I discover something amazing on every visit. The only reason it's not 5-star is that the staff sometimes are a bit unorganised - on this visit, the person serving was trying to serve someone else, even though he hadn't actually finished his shopping. So just left me standing there while he faffed about. I just wanted to pay and leave! Anyway, it's still a great shop and well worth a visit when you're in Finnieston.
