===Why I Got This=== I suppose there are some households these days who do not need or use matches, but most homes need them occasionally for one use or another - even if it is only for when the power is cut off and we have to revert to candles. ===The Brand=== The Swan brand began in 1883 and the matches were finally called 'Swan Vestas' in 1906. By the 1930s 'Swan Vestas' had become 'Britain's best selling match'. The brand is now owned by the Swedish Match company. ===The Product=== 'The Original' Swan Vestas. In cardboard box with the matches in a push out tray. Yellow box with ... Read the complete review

When buying matches to take camping, I have found recently that it is better to pay for quality rather than buy the cheapest ones in quantity. I recently went camping with some cheap matches and soon found they weren't up to the job. A trip to a local shop and I came back with these, a good quality brand that should offer more prospect. --- The Packaging --- The matches come in a simple cardboard box that measure 8cm x 4cm x 1.5cm in size. The box is red, yellow and green in colour which is the colours that you will find on most Swan products. It also makes the box very eye-catching and easy to find when looking through rucksacks. The front has the Swan ... Read the complete review

I wanted to write a review about this humble little household product because of a rather alarming experience I had with them a couple of summers ago. First to the description: Vesta is the Roman goddess of hearth; and I rather like the classical reference in the name, it sort of emphasises the feeling of quality. These matches have been around a long time, being originally made from a cotton wick dipped in wax; before moving on to the more familiar pine 'stick' and sulphur tip match in 1895. Swan matches originated in their wax incarnation in Mersyside made by Collard & Kendall, before moving in their pine incarnation to the familiar Bryant and May Co. ... Read the complete review

Most weekends when we are at home, which is a lot more since having a child (!), we put our fire on as soon as the colder Autumn weather begins. Alongside the fire, I like to have candles lit up around the room to create that added warmth and cosiness. My husband has always got me to purchase the longer matches in the supermarket to use in the fire but for quite a while my local Tesco stopped selling these longer matches and the only ones in stock were these Swan Vestas, which currently cost £1.20 for a pack of four, which is very good value. With my husband running out of the longer matches at the time I had no choice but to give these a go even though I knew they ... Read the complete review

I always keep an emergency stash of candles and matches both upstairs and downstairs in the case of a power cut. I would hate to be caught out and not have any way of getting light if it happened in the night. The emergency matches upstairs are these Swan vestas matches. I actually got given my matches from my mum but they are available to purchase from places like supermarkets and corner shops. They normally cost no more than 40 pence a box and can be bought in multipacks. The matches come inside a rectangular matchbox which is of the same design as all other matchboxes out there. It has two striking pads on both of the long lengths of the box. The ... Read the complete review
