      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great store,especially on buy one get one free offers.

      Morrison's supermarket has had some great offers on recently; I popped in the other day to spend my Morrison's miles voucher and ended up buying my Christmas chocolates as they were selling Roses, Quality Street and celebrations for £4.00 a tin this offer was limited to 5 tins per customer. Pack size 972g like other offers that they have had recently they are all limited. Morrison's is great for buy one get one free offers even if you don't do a full shop its worth a walk around to just see what bargains they have on offer, I usually get the bread which is usually on offer, at the moment it is Rathbones which gives you great saving as bread seems to have soured in price. This offer is two for one. Unfortunately all the offers are scattered around the shop so be careful not to miss them but most of them are usually at the end of each section. Morrison's supermarkets seem to all look more or less the same all having the market street, which contains the green grocer, fish counter, salad bar, deli, cake shop, and butchers, fresh to go and oven baked. My only moan is about the trolleys which you have to search for a pound for, and if you don't have one it can be a nuisance, I now keep a coin token on my keys to avoid this. I find the baby parking facilities great in Morrison's as the trolleys are located next to the parking bays, I am not sure if that applies to all Morrison's but it does at the one I use. Unlike my local ASDA where I have to carry my grandson quite away before I find a trolley then when I unload the shopping I have to take him back to the trolley bay with me as they are quite a distance away, and very annoying if its pouring with rain. Morrison's also have saving stamp scheme which is great for Christmas a couple of pounds every week put the card takes the pressure off your Christmas shop. The saving card goes up to the value of £100 and when you fill it you get a few Pounds knocked off. Morrison's have been giving vouchers for schools with your shopping at the moment, these are awarded on how much you spend these vouchers go towards gardening equipment for your local school. I pass mine on to my nephew for his school. I have to admit I don't do all my shopping in Morrison's as I go to ASDA and Aldi for some of it, but I find them a great store for offers and they do stock my favourite gravy granules which is golden fry which I cant seem to get hold of anywhere else. Overall Morrison's is a great shop, it doesn't have everything to offer like Tesco an ASDA who do the clothes sections, chemist and large electrical products, but it does have a dvd section and a small electrical part, and most of all it has lots of buy one get one free, you cant go wrong.

      Glad ive been but will not go back.

      I visited the Eden project earlier this year, staying close by at the Victoria Inn, which was ideally suited for our stay and quite close to get to by car. The Eden project is situated at Bodelva near St Austell, and was the idea of Tim Smit. I must admit that the Eden project is not for everybody's taste I think it's a place you either love or hate, I enjoyed my visit more than I had anticipated as it was my husband who was eager to go, I am glad I have visited the Eden project but it is a place I have visited and feel no need to ever return again,. (Been there and done that) We purchased our tickets through our hotel which avoided us having to queue at the entrance. Prices were £15 for each adult. If you are not a plant lover then this is definitely not the place for you to visit, Eden is the world largest greenhouse. Comprising of 3 biomes all at the base of a pit, as you look down these biomes look unusual sat in the base of what use to be a china clay pit, with there peculiar shapes, you don't really realise till you enter the biomes how big they really are and how vast the project is. The biomes are split into two sections the Mediterranean and the rain forest I was a little disappointed with the Mediterranean part as it just seemed a little like an indoor park or garden centre, the Mediterranean Biome include aubergines, citrus fruits, grape vines, olives, but on entering the rainforest biome now your talking, on entering the humidity hits you, you definitely need to take off some layers in here. The Rainforest Biome contains tropical plants such as banana trees, coffee, rubber and giant bamboo. The plants in the rainforest biome are gigantic, and some reaching to the top of the biomes which are 55 metres high, the waterfalls are also a great feature and we actually got the shock of a little lizard appearing in front of us this was great especially for children who giggled as it appeared. Car parks are plentiful, we walked down and it was a quite steep walk, but there is a shuttle service to and from the biomes. All the car parks are colour coded; when we arrived for opening the car parks were all quite empty but on leaving we found that they were all pretty full. The Eden project has very good facilities, plenty of places to eat, a large gift shop, which sells lots of memorabilia like most gift shops sell. The restaurants are quite expensive so it is a good idea to take a packed lunch. The Eden project has quite a lot to offer for children lots of little paths, and hide away areas and play areas and storytelling and is very educational. Overall I am glad I have been to visit the Eden project, it was something different but I wouldn't advise anyone just to travel down to go to just there, I think perhaps it is over rated quite expensive. Worth a visit if you're holidaying in Cornwall just to say you have been.

        A great tasting ice cream

        I purchased milky bar ice cream for my grandson thinking he would love it but he wasn't to keen though, so I thought id have a try of it, well one taste and I was addicted to it. Milky bar ice cream is everything it claims to be, it just tastes of frozen white milky bar and has lots of white chunky chocolate chunks. I love white chocolate anyway so I was sure to like this product, The ice cream was creamy and soft and melted instantly on my tongue, once i had tasted the delicious white chocolate i was hooked. This ice cream has definately been made to entice children, i found the ice cream a lovely consistency unlike some cheaper ice creams which can come out and be like a solid block. I took mine out of the freezer 5 minutes before eating and it scooped out the tub with my scoop very easily. Milky bar ice cream comes in a 950ml plastic oval shaped tub. I purchased this product from ASDA freezer section at a price of £1.96. *Packaging. The ice cream comes in an oval shaped tub which is distinctly designed with the milky bar colours of cream and red. The wording across the front is milky bar which navy blue in colour. The ice cream has a reseal able lid which on first opening has a small seal that needs to be broken. Milky bar ice cream is produced by Nestle they have been famous since 1867 when Henri nestle first created baby milk formula and saved the life of a neighbours child.Other products in this range also include Fab and Smaties ice cream. *Ingredients. Partially Reconstituted Skimmed Milk Concentrate, White Chocolate Drops,Sugar, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Butter, Whey Powder, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifier Soya Lecithin, Flavouring, Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Dextrose, Glucose Syrup, Sweetened Condensed Milk, Emulsifier, Stabilisers. *Each 100ml serving contains Calories 132, Sugar 15.8g, Fat 6.3g, Saturates 3.9g, Salt 0.1g. Overall milky bar ice cream is a great white chocolate dessert; it tastes great and packed with lots of chocolate and quite good value for money, But definitely not for any one who does not like white chocolate. I look forward to trying the other two varieties.

          A great medicine that actually tastes ok.

          We have all woke up with that awful tickle in your throat and you just know it's the start of a nasty cold or cough and sore throat, Buttercup syrup is the best cough medicine for coughs colds and sore throats in my opinion. Buttercup syrup is a Very Soothing and effective cough syrup. Traditional original flavour and it actually tastes quite nice for a cough syrup, unlike some you can get, from being a little girl this was the only medicine I didn't mind taking. This medicine contains two active ingredients, squill liquid extract, Squill is a plant extract with a expectorant effect, and Capsicum tincture is present which provides an aromatic and warming flavour, the active ingredients of this medicine are included in a syrup base which coats and soothes the throat and relieves irritation. *squill- im afraid I did not know what squill was so had to look it up as I imagined it as some sea urchin or something on those lines, but it isn't it is a Bulb-forming perennial plant belonging to the lily family. * Cayenne (Capsicum tincture) has been traditionally used for poor circulation, cold extremities, weak nerve force, indigestion, flatulence, expels mucous, hoarseness, colds & flu. *Other ingredients- acacia powder, ethanol, saccharin sodium, invert syrup, menthol, clove oil, peppermint oil, aniseed flavour, water chloroform, strong ginger tincture, acetic acid, E110, E112, and E1150. Buttercup syrup comes in a 200 ml tall glass bottle with a breakable seal cap; it is also available in a 75ml bottle. The syrup is Brown in colour and leaves a lovely warming feeling that soothes and eases your throat. Once opened the bottle does not have a safety cap so needs to be stored out of reach of children. The outer packaging is a bright green card board box, with a picture of a yellow buttercup and the wording buttercup syrup. The 200ml bottle was £3.98 in ASDA. The syrup does not come with a 5ml medicine spoon or measuring cap. Other products from this range are Buttercup Infant Cough Syrup, Buttercup medicated sweets *Directions for use. Children over 2 years of age: One 5 ml spoonful, three times a day and at bedtime when the cough is troublesome. Adults and children over l2 years of age: Two 5 ml spoonfuls, three times a day and at bedtime when the cough is troublesome *Buttercup syrup comes with warnings like most medicines and are as follow Not suitable for children under 2. If symptoms persist consult your GP. Check you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. There is no information on the safety of the medicine on breast feeding and pregnancy. Buttercup syrup is manufactured by William ransom and son plc which is the UK's oldest independent pharmaceutical company. It was founded in 1846 and has been based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire for over 160 years. The product licence holder is Pfizer consumer health care. Overall buttercup syrup is a great tasting cough syrup that I always have a bottle of in my medicine cupboard just in case any one wakes up with a troublesome cough.

            A tasty dessert.

            I have ever such a sweet tooth but like to try something different each week, so last weeks treat was ASDA profiteroles which were priced at £1 for a box of 16, the profiteroles are made with Choux pastry buns with a whipped dairy filling served with rich dark chocolate sauce. ASDA profiteroles are from the desert section in the freezers, they come in a small oblong box, inside the box you have the 16 bite size profiteroles and a sachet of dark chocolate sauce, it is ever so quick and easy to prepare the profiteroles, all you need to do is defrost them for around 1.5 hours both the sauce and the profiteroles at room temperature, if you like to defrost in the fridge allow a lot longer perhaps double the time. The Pack size is 235 g. * Not to be defrosted in the microwave. I placed my profiteroles in a sundae dishes and then warmed the sauce in a bowl For 1.5 minutes then pored over the profiteroles, how lovely and tempting they looked, I then poured a little double cream and then served. The taste was absolutely lovely the combination of the choux pastry and the cream and chocolate was just lovely, although I have tasted better chocolate sauces, if your not to keen on a lot of chocolate you can pour on less of the sauce. Although ASDA profiteroles were nice they are not the best profiteroles I have ever tasted, so that is why I have just given 3 stars in my score rating. *Ingredients. Creamy Filling - Cream, Milk, Sugar, Egg, Potato Starch, Skimmed Milk Powder, Stabiliser, Wheat Starch, Chocolate Sauce- Water, Sugar, Plain Chocolate ,Cocoa Mass, Sugar, Reduced Fat Cocoa Powder, Cocoa Butter, Emulsifier, Natural Flavouring, Whipped Cream ,Milk, Cocoa Powder, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Emulsifier ,Stabiliser, Whole Egg, Wheat Flour, Vegetable Fat, Salt *This product is Suitable for Vegetarians, but Contains Gluten, Wheat, Eggs Milk and May Contain Nuts but is Free From Artificial Flavours *Per profiterole Energy KJ 196 Protein 0.8 Available Carbohydrate 2.7 Of Which Sugars 2.0 Fat 3.7 of which Saturates 2.4 Fibre 0.4 Sodium Trace. Overall ASDA profiteroles are not a bad dessert especially for £1.00; I have to add that I have tried Profiteroles from other supermarkets and the best one I have ever tasted was from Aldi which to me had a nicer chocolate sauce. I would buy ASDA profiteroles again though as they were very tasty and looked lovely and for a £1 you can't really complain.

              Another great hit from the muller range.

              Muller Amore with chocolate flakes is the last one in the range that I have tried, and what a surprise I thought this one would be the one I didn't like, but out of all the flavours I love it the best, for any one who hasn't tried a Muller Amore yogurt, to describe it is pure luxury, thick creamy and tastes divine. Peeling back the blue foil lid it reveals a thick creamy white yogurt, speckled right through with the dark chocolate flakes, the yogurt has a lovely creamy texture and a very nice vanilla flavour and the chocolate is dark but not overpowering. Muller amore are currently on offer in ASDA at 5 pots of 150g for £1, a normal recommended price of 68p per pot, so it is a really good offer which runs till the 28/10/2008. The range includes- morello cherry, peach, Spanish orange, strawberry, vanilla chocolate and walnut and Greek honey, all in 150g tubs. *Packaging. The Amore yogurts come in a round tub which is a dark navy blue in colour; it is quite a sophisticated looking pot, with the Muller logo set in a red background, and the wording Amore for me written under a picture of a spoon loaded with the amore yogurt. *Nutrition. Per 150g serving Energy 1065 KJ, 255 kcal, Protein 4.1g, Carbohydrates 27.6g of which sugars 25.8g, Fat 14.3g of which saturates 8.9g, Fibre 0.3g, Sodium trace. *Ingredients Yogurt, Whipping Cream, Sugar, Water, Cocoa Mass, Corn Flour, Cocoa Butter, Lemon Juice from Concentrate, Natural Flavourings, Dark Chocolate Flakes. * Suitable for vegetarians and Celiac and free from nuts. * Contains milk. Muller chocolate flake yogurt has 18% of whipping cream in it, and as you can see from the ingredients has a whopping 14.3g of fat in each pot and 255 calories, so not really suitable for anyone watching there figure. Muller dairy UK home is in Shropshire, 90% of their milk comes from 30 miles from there nearest dairy, Ludwig Muller first established his dairy way back in 1896 in a Bavarian village, and today Muller products can be found around the world. Overall Muller Amore with chocolate flakes is a really great tasting yogurt, I really enjoyed it but I have to say I will only be buying them while they are on offer as I think 68p is a little bit steep in price for one yogurt.

                Really tasty sauce, i am very impressed.

                Baked beans from branston?! Yes we all know branston is famous for making pickle and Heinz are famous for beans, but hats off to branston I think they have given Heinz a run for there money. I recently purchased 4 tins for 99p of branston baked beans 4 x 420g in Morrison's; the baked beans have a lovely colourful and thick sauce and taste really great, the beans themselves are quite a descent size and are a nice texture. Baked beans are a healthy fat free and contain no saturated fat or cholesterol and provide your body with important nutrients such as fibre, protein, calcium, iron, folic acid and potassium. Branston is made by Premier Foods which is a great British food company with a passion for creating great food and brands that people love. Branston is famous for pickle since 1922 and launched the branston baked bean variety in October 2005. Baked beans are a perfect accompaniment to any meal or quite simply on there own, they are cheap easy and versatile, I personally like mine with a jacket potato and a slice of quiche, but they are great on toast and even a few on a good old English breakfast. Cooking guidance is to cook them either in the microwave or in a pan, the microwave version is simple and takes 3 minutes stirring half way through cooking, ensure they are covered as they tend to explode and make a mess of the microwave. To cook on the hob heat the beans gently and stir, do not boil them as they can stick at the bottom of pan. *Ingredients Beans, Tomatoes, Water, Sugar, Modified Maize Starch, Salt, Paprika, Ground White Pepper, Flavouring, Spices *Suitable for Vegetarians. *Nutrition per Serving per 210g, Energy KJ 777 Protein 10.1 Carbohydrate 33.8 Of Which Sugars 12.4 Fat 0.8 Of which Saturates 0.2 Fibre 11.6 Sodium 0.70 *packaging The branston beans tin I purchased has a new design label to the one pictured above, it is a very eye catching silver. The branston logo is on the top which is navy blue wording set in a yellow background, in the centre of the tin is red wording baked beans and a picture of a few baked beans. The branston beans also come in Baked beans 220GR, Healthy baked beans 420GR, Blooming big beans 420G. Branston has also launched new canned Spaghetti and Spaghetti Hoops Heinz did a head to head blind test for the beans among 746,000 consumers and branston beans was preferred by 76 per cent of the consumers, a thicker richer and tastier recipe from branston has been a great hit, since branston launched the beans Heinz have changed there recipe. Heinz claims it is simply responding to changing consumer tastes. Overall branston beans are really tasty and I would say definitely as good as Heinz and to upset some probably better.

                  A fantastic experience.

                  I could not leave Rome without visiting St peter basilica also known as Basilica di San Pietro, the centre of Christianity, I was overwhelmed when I entered the basilica, not just the vastness and immense size of the building but the atmosphere was overwhelming. The Vatican and St. Peter's Square is a long walk from most historical sites in Rome, we stayed in the centre of Rome so we had to use the tube to get there, which I must advise anyone who is going to visit Rome is a haven for pick pockets so be very wary. The walk from the tube to Vatican city was lovely there was lots of little curio shops selling rosary beads and scarf's, as you approach the Vatican city You can see Michelangelo designed dome from a great distance away. Home to the most powerful figure, the Pope The basilica sits overlooking Saint Peters square, here you find a long queue of people waiting to enter the basilica, before entering you have to go through an x -ray machine, and there is a very strict dress code, which is No shorts, bare shoulders or miniskirts are allowed to be worn. This rule applies to both men and to women. The first thing I noticed was how huge the 5 bronze doors where on entering the basilica, these where guarded by Swiss guards dressed in there colourful uniforms. The basilica itself is full of the finest Renaissance monuments and decorations, designed by the best money could buy and using the great talents of Michelangelo and Bernini. We were lucky when we arrived as we had just planned by chance to visit on a Wednesday, and to our surprise the pope addresses an Audience on a Wednesday morning, to attend an audience you need a pass which we unfortunately did not have one, but it did not stop us watching the service. This just added more to the atmosphere. ST Peters Basilica sits inside the Vatican city surrounded by the whole of Rome, over looking ST Peters square, which is actually round in shape, and is absolutely beautiful, the square has two large fountains and a Obelisk from Egypt, which sits centrally in the square, And all this is surrounded by the Colonnades which are supported by 284 columns, and to crown it all on top of these are 140 statues of saints, The Vatican city is the worlds smallest state and yet biggest tourist attraction, when you visit it you can understand why it attracts so many people. Photographs can be taken in the basilica, unlike some historical churches I have visited. I took great advantage of this and got lots of pictures and even a distant photo of the pope to prove I had seen him. Overall I think the Saint Peters basilica is a magnificent piece of art. I'm not a religious person but I am truly glad I went to visit it. It is absolutely breathtaking.

                    A cheap and convenient way to get to your destination.

                    Low cost airline services are great but leave you with the problem of getting from the airport to the hotel, in my experience using taxis can prove rather expensive. Terravision is a fairly new company; the company started off by offering a shuttle service fro Ciampino airport in 2002 and since then has expanded to offer the shuttle service from the following. London Stanstead to London city centre. London Luton airport to London Victoria station. Liverpool airport to Manchester city centre. Rome campiano airport to Rome city termini station. Rome Fiumicino airport to rome city termini station. Milan Bergamo airport to Milan Centrale Station. Pisa G. Galilei airport to Florence city centre. Forli airport to bolgna city centre. Frankfurt hahn to neu-isenburg/Offenbach and nanau. Vienna baratislava to Vienna city. Dublin airport to Dublin city centre. Dolomites transfers. I first used Terravsion on landing in Rome Ciampino airport, the shuttle service runs from the airport to central Rome it is around a 40 minute journey which drops you off outside the Rome Termini Station, which is right in the centre of Rome. It is Ideal for any one who is staying in the city centre it was ideal for us just a 5 minute walk to our hotel. We only purchased our tickets on arriving at the Ciampino airport at a price of 8 euro for one way, but there is a special internet price which is 6 euro, I wish I had known you could book online in advance to avoid queuing at the airport. You can also purchase the tickets off the staff before you board. Return tickets can also be purchased and work out a little bit cheaper. *The shuttle service advises all passengers to board the coach at least 3 hours before there flight departure time.Each service destination has its own timetable of departures. I was very pleased with the service from Terravision and will definitely use them again on travelling to any of the destinations they are in. www.terravision.eu/

                    very light choclate mousse.

                    Aero Bubbly chocolate mousse is made with finest Milk chocolate; the mousse is light and very chocolaty, I don't think it tastes much like the aero bar of chocolate though, but if you like chocolate this is for you, as it is quite strongly flavoured. I have tried lots of different varieties of chocolate mousse and to me they all taste very much the same. The aero mousse comes in a 4 pack in a cardboard sleeve, each individual pot is 59g in size, and contains 105 calories; the individual pots come with a lid which is easily peeled off to reveal the chocolate mousse. *each 59g pot contains the following. Calories 105, Sugars 11.4g, Fats 4.2g Saturates 3.2g Salt 0.1g * Packaging. The outer packaging is a cardboard sleeve, with the aero logo the front, and the picture is of lots of chocolate bubbles. The inner packaging is a plastic pot which has a sealed lid, and a little tab to aid opening. Aero chocolate mousse also comes in white milky bar chocolate variety and also aero bubbly orange, these varieties are often on promotion in most supermarkets usually on buy one get one free. The recommended price for the mousse is around £1.10 for a four pack. *Ingredients. Whole Milk, Sugar, Milk Chocolate, Cream, Chocolate Powder Cocoa Powder, Gelatine, Skimmed Milk Powder, and Emulsifier: E472b, Gelling Agents: E407, E401. * may contain traces of nuts. Nestle is the second largest company in the United kingdoms yogurt and fromage frais sector, making ski and much bunch to name a few, the two main branded products in the UK that nestle are famous for are kit Kat and Nescafe. Nestle was born in 1867 by Henri Nestle and opened a sales office in the London in 1868. Henri Nestle was a pharmacist and developed a food for babies who could not be breast fed, and made the first commercially sold infant formula. Nestle now has 489 factories world wide and produces the world's favourite brands. Overall I enjoyed the aero chocolate mousse it was light and chocolaty, and like most chocolate products once you have had one you get the urge to have another.

                      Every cup of Typhoo is bursting with 'OO' I have to confess I am very fussy about my tea, I have tried lots of varieties and there are some I won't even touch anymore, so I must be a bit of a tea snob. I don't have milk or sugar in my tea, just straight from the pot, I can not abide weak tea, every one else is drinking there's while mine is still brewing. I have recently bought Typhoo as I caught a few good offers more recently in pound stretcher where you got two boxes of 200 Typhoo one cup tea bags for £3, and to my surprise it is not a bad cuppa, normally ill go for PG or Yorkshire, but this Typhoo one cup is in my top list now. Typhoo tea bags are round in shape, use one bag per cup or mug and add fresh boiling water, let it brew till you get the right depth of colour for your tea then add milk or lemon and sugar to your preferred taste. Typhoo tea is available in 100 bags, 200 bags and 300 bags, the tea leaves are carefully selected, in order to bring a unique and refreshing taste of Typhoo one cup.The tea bags are sealed in a foil pack for freshness. Uniquely vacuum packed at the time of picking for fresh taste and aroma. * Packaging. The tea bags come in a square red box with the Typhoo logo on the front; the 200 pack which I bought had 4 individual sealed foil packs inside, which each contain 50 bags to keeps them fresh, and just enough in each to fill your tea caddy up. *Typhoo. Birmingham grocer john Sumner developed Typhoo and sold a blend of tea back in 1903, John's sister Mary was the inspiration for the product and was behind its development as she thought it was a good cure for indigestion. Overall Typhoo one cup is a really good cuppa, just a great tasting tea and very reasonably priced.

                        A tasty wholesome soup.

                        Baxter's highlander broth is a traditional recipe from Baxters soup range, the broth is a very rich made with lamb and beef stock, I wasn't quite sure when I saw the label that I would like it as there was mix of meat flavours , but It is delicious. The highlander broth has satisfying chunks of potato, carrot, onion, celery, green beans and peas as well as pearl barley. The soup is comes in a 415g tin with a ring pull lid, which I think all cans should have these days, makes opening the can so easy. Highlander's broth is a low calorie meal in a tin containing 97 calories for half a can, I warmed the soup up in a pan gently and you could instantly smell the meaty aroma of the lamb and beef stock. * Packaging. The famous red Baxter's logo is emblazoned on the front of the tin, the tin label is predominately red in colour, with a bowl of the steamy highlander's broth on the front. * Ingredients. Water, Potatoes, Carrots, Pearl Barley, Onions, Beef , Lamb, Celery, Wheat flour, Green Beans, Modified Cornflower, Peas, Concentrated Tomato Paste, Salt, Yeast Extract, Lamb Fat, Herbs and Spices, Malt Extract from barley, Beef Extract, Garlic Puree, Vegetables. *This product is not suitable for vegetarians due to the meat content. * Warnings - wheat, gluten and celery. Baxter's soups can be purchased in most super markets for around 75p a tin but sometimes can be on a promotional offer. Overall highlander's broth is a really tasty soup and a great winter warmer, quick and easy to prepare.

                          a great tasting biscuit bar from fox's

                          Fox's triple biscuit is a layer of smooth milk chocolate layer sandwiched between two oaty biscuits, all individually wrapped, when you buy a fox's biscuit you just know you're getting a quality product. Each individual biscuit contains 100 calories; the oaty layers have a rippled texture to them, each individually wrapped in its own distinctive red wrapper, the biscuits have more of an oaty taste with a hint of coconut to them rather than chocolate, which is a nice change for a biscuit bar as its usually the other way around, the milk chocolate layer which is neatly sandwiched between the oaty biscuits, tastes very nice but does not over power the biscuit layers. Each pack of fox's triple biscuits contains 12 bars, at a price of £1.19, they are available in most supermarkets, I recently purchased mine from Morrison's on buy one get one free, and so I got a really good bargain. *Packaging. Easy to spot as it's a distinctive bright red packet with the fox's logo on the front and a small picture of the triple bar, and the slogan saying that they have been making biscuits since 1853. The internal packaging is much the same, all the biscuits individually wrapped in a bright red wrapper with the same logo. * Suitable for vegetarians. * Warnings. Contains gluten, oats, wheat, milk, Soya and has been produced in a factory that uses nuts. *Nutritional information per bar. Calories 100kcal Fat 5.0g Carbohydrates 12.4g Protein 1.3g Sodium 0.07g Fibre 0.07g * Ingredients. Wheat flour, Milk Chocolate, Vegetable Oil, Sugar, Rolled Oats, Partially Inverted Refiners Syrup, Oatmeal, Desiccated Coconut, Glucose Syrup, Raising Agents: Disodium Diphosphate, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Salt, Molasses, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Flavouring, Milk Chocolate contains: Sugar, Cocoa Mass, Cocoa Butter, Dried Whole Milk, Dried Whey, Vegetable Oil, Dried Skimmed Milk, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Flavouring. Fox' s biscuits is well known for its products which include a great deal of my favourites, rocky, echo, classic and also a wide range of biscuit barrel fillers, they have been making biscuits since 1853 and have three factories that are in Batley, kirkham and Uttoxeter. Fox's biscuits was founded by Michael Spedding who opened a small confectionary shop in the middle of Batley, one of the first biscuits developed was the brandy snap. Overall this biscuit is great tasting, it is not to crumbly and is a great family favourite, and I find it quite reasonably priced. It is just a nice size to nibble on while you sit down and have a nice cuppa.

                            Full of flavour, simply delicious.

                            Traditional roast chicken dinner just wouldn't be the same without paxo, full of flavour it's just the perfect finish to a chicken dinner. Paxo Sage and Onion tastes wonderful with meat, vegetables and potatoes and gravy and don't forget those Yorkshire puddings. Paxo can also be used to compliment roast pork, and especially at Christmas with turkey. Simple to make just follow the instructions, I usually make mine in a large bowl and crisp it up in the oven, if I am preparing for a large amount of people then I will make it into small stuffing balls, but the more traditional way is to stuff the chicken. It is always handy if you have any left over to use it up in chicken sandwiches. *Directions for use are so simple just add required amount of hot water depending on the pack size mix then crisp off in the oven. An 85g pack serves around 4 to 5 people.( I always add a small knob of butter to mine) This review is about the classic paxo stuffing preferred by generations for more than 100 years. It was created by john crampon, a butcher from Manchester, who wanted to make his customers meals a lot more exciting. Now the paxo can be bought in lots of different varieties, wild sage and red onion, sage and onion with garlic, sage and onion with lemon, and sage and onion with apple., Paxo apricot and orange, paxo chestnut and cranbury. The premier range includes chestnut and sauthy. Paxo sage and onion stuffing comes in a variety of sizes I paid 41p for a 85g box in ASDA, but it also comes in 170g, 385g sizes. *ingredients Wheatflour, Dried Onion , Salt, Vegetable Oils, Dried Sage , Dried Parsley, Raising Agents , Malt Extract. *suitable for vegetarians *warnings not suitable for people who have nut allergies. *contains barley and wheat. *50g serving contains Calories 58, Sugars 1.0g, Fat 0.9g, Saturates 0.5g, Salt 0.43g. *produced Premier foods produce paxo, and are a great British food company with a passion for creating great food and brands that people love. They have a wide range of Branded products which include Hovis, Sharwoods, Mr kipling, Bisto to name a few. Overall paxo sage and onion completes a Sunday chicken dinner; it is full of flavour and a chicken dinner just wouldn't taste the same without it.

                              absolutely delicious.

                              Milk chocolate digestive balls, with a separate helping of vanilla flavour yogurt, is a wonderful combination, I have been quite lucky buying these lately as Morrison's a had a great offer were you could buy 10 for £2.00 but that offer has ended, but to my greatest pleasure I popped in to tesco and they had them on offer for 5 for a £1. The normal recommended price for the yogurts is 53p each for a 150g tub. As much as I love them I would not pay 53p for one. The vanilla yogurt is quite thick not like some cheaper yogurts you buy, and the chocolate balls all coated in milk chocolate, tipped together is a taste sensation. Muller has a great range of yogurts to choose from, especially in the corner range but I do prefer the crunch corner ones, the other ranges are fruit corner and healthy balance corner which gives you 18 varieties to choose from. *packaging The yogurt comes in a square shaped pot which is split into two sections one triangular larger section for the creamy vanilla yogurt, and a smaller triangular shaped one for the digestive balls, so you can mix it up any way you like it. The small triangular shaped part can be easily tipped without making any mess. The lid is tin foil and pulls back very easily. *Ingredients: Yogurt, Sugar, Water, Wheat Flour, Cocoa Powder, Milk Powder, Modified Maize Starch, Vegetable Fat, Cocoa Mass, Whey Powder, Lactose, Barley Malt, Flavourings, Skimmed Milk Powder, Salt, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithins; Treacle. Milk Chocolate coated digestive biscuits (11%) *suitable for vegetarians *warnings Contains Milk, Wheat & Barley (Gluten) and Soya May contain Nut and/or Egg traces. This was not a healthy pudding as the calorific contents are displayed in 100g and the pot being 150g means there are a whopping 224 calories per pot and 8.3g of fat. Although it does give you 23% calcium of your RDA. *mulller Ludwig Muller first established his dairy in a little Bavarian village in 1896, today his grandson Theo runs the hugely successful business, Theo has run the business since 1970, and recognised that the popularity of his dairy products could be a national success, the company began to grow very quickly and in 1980s it launched the famous split pot which soon became loved all around the world. Overall I find these yogurts irresistible, they don't stay in our fridge for long, every one in the house goes straight for the digestive ones before eating any others, I can't blame them really as who could resist them.
