Bryant & May Extra Long Matches
Advantages: Long burning time, Stops me from burning my fingers, Reasonably priced
Disadvantages: None for me
Matches are something that I use regularly in my home due to the large amount of candles we use (most of the time my long handled lighter is out of gas!). My matches of choice are usually Bryant & May Extra Long Matches which are widely available in most supermarkets etc. Most recently I brought my box of Bryant & May Extra Long Matches from Morrisons for just 69p which I think you will agree is a very reasonable price (most shops retail for around this price).
May & Bryant Matches (just thought I'd shake it up there, why does Bryant always have to come first!?) come in a box and you must strike the side of the box to light the matches - this requires a gentle strike (away from the body) which is very quick and easy to do. Most importantly they are also 'safety matches' which means they can only be lit when struck against the box and unlike some other matches, these matches are very good quality and I haven't yet had one snap whilst attempting to light it. Most averagely the amount of matches per box is 45, each match is about 3 inches long and the box describes them as 'ideal for open fires, barbecues and candles'.
Make sure you keep them out of childrens reach!
My reasoning for somewhat favouring Bryant & May over other brands is not just the price but because they are extra long which makes them last considerably longer than most standard size matches (about a minute) and also ensures I don't burn my fingers, which seems to happen far too often with standard size matches! Major upsides of these matches are that I can easily light all of the candles in my house and every candle on a birthday cake, usually all with ONE match - very handy AND cost effective.
Most of the time when I light my jar candles (especially when they have melted down quite far) I have to stick my hand right in to the jar with the match and the flame rises up and usually burns my hand with smaller matches, but this doesn't happen with Bryant & May Extra Long Matches.
Marvellous matches that I will continue to use and am happy to recommend them to others.
Summary: Marvellous matches.
