[A Bit on the Side]


 We Are Going To Revolutionize The Way You Think About Jelly! This was Hilary McGrath's mission when she began creating delicious savoury jellies in her kitchen in Oldcastle, County Meath.

Since then, A Bit on the Side has continued to grow and thrive, winning many awards along the way, including several at Blas na hÉireann in 2019.  


At A Bit on the Side, they have taken jelly to a whole new level with their hand-made, all natural Gourmet Savoury Jellies. Each one is a unique, novel combination of flavours, that can be served as a condiment, glaze or salad dressing base. These jellies are a total taste transformation...titillating, tempting, tantalizing. Whether you fancy a Hot, Tasty or Boozy Bit on the Side, their three lines of Savoury Jellies will satisfy all your wants, needs and desires.
