I’ve lost track of the number of Tunnock’s products we have featured. Everything from cushions to kitchen aprons in fact (and much in-between). But we definitely have not featured these Tunnock’s-inspired storage tins by Gillian Kyle, which are new additions to the range.
A classic snack (we've got a pack on the go right now) is reworked as a wonderful piece of interior design – the Tunnock's Teacake Round Cushion by Gillian Kyle.
Gillian Kyle specialises in illustrations of classic Scottish food stuffs, previously featured as canvas bag designs. Now you can get the look in your kitchen too with her new mugs.
The range includes some of our previous retro favourites, such as Creamola foam or the delicious Tunnock's Tea Cake, pictured above. Brightly coloured, they're a perfect way to add a taste of Scotland to your kitchen.
The mugs cost £10.50 each.

If you are Scottish and of a certain age, you are likely to recognise the design Gillian Kyle has used on her new bag, featuring the packaging for the Creamola Foam drink.
For those less in the know, Creamola foam was a soft drink manufactured, as it says on the bag, in the form of soluble crystals. It was made in Glasgow and sold from the fifties until 1998 when Nestlé ceased production of the drink. If you're eager to try some, there's apparently now an independent company who manufacture a similar drink but until you track them down, this bag is a tasty substitute. The charming packaging of the crystals has been foil printed in fuchsia onto a plain cotton tote.
If you've got a sweet tooth for all things Scottish, Kyle was the artist behind the Tunnock's Tea Cake tote bag we featured a little while back.
You can get the back for £17.50.
