As all who have come to know me are aware, I am very interested in food, shopping for it, looking at it, watching people make it, reading books about it and best of all, eating it. So when Mt Colah Fruit World was taken over by new owners about 6 months ago and had a major revamp, I was very excited.

Fresh fruit and vegetables are in abundance as soon as you walk in. There is always a great range of fresh produce, which is restocked regularly so you get the best on offer. Something really useful is that they have nutritional information, preparation tips, "best used for" hints and interesting facts about all the fruit and veg on the labels above the produce.

My favourite little area of the shop to explore is the fridge section. There are delicious specialty dips, yoghurts, fudge, cheeses, deli meats, olives, peppers, fresh juices and much more. You can get great big tubs of feta, haloumi, ricotta, which, by the way, is so creamy and yum you can eat it straight out of the container, although I wouldn't necessarily advise that, as you may well subsequently feel like a complete glutton. They also have huge wheels of cheese that you can buy if you're really keen, but they obviously also sell those cheeses by the wedge as well. Some of the varieties they stock are Parmesan, Jarlsberg, Pecorino and Romano.

Another fabulous addition to the store is all the Italian goods including biscuits, pasta, pasta sauces, pastries and a freezer full of decadent, dreamy gelato. There's a multitude of different bags of nuts, salted, unsalted, mixed, fruit and nuts, flavoured nuts as well as wasabi peas, spicy corn kernels and lollies. If you're a condiment lover there is no shortage here. They stock imported and local relishes, jams, spreads, sauces, aioli and pickles too.

Gosh, it seems like I've mentioned a zillion different things - but yet I know there is still more to see here. So, get ready, get set… MANGO! (Well I had to pop a pun in somewhere).
