      A tasty sports drink that can help keep you hydrated

      As I play football once a week I always buy a drink that helps me keep hydrated through the game. The drink I usually end up buying is Lucozade sport orange flavour.

      The drink comes in a plastic 500ml bottle and has a sports cap lid at the top. The bottle is wrapped with a firm paper that has Lucozade sport written on the front of it. Lucozade sport is written is yellow and white and the colour of the firm paper is light and dark blue.

      The taste of the drink is just right in my opinion as the drink is sweet but not to sweet that its sickly. As you drink the sports drink you will instantly taste the strong, sweet orange taste in your mouth. No matter if you've just opened the bottle or reached the end of the bottle the drink gives the same consistent taste.

      Overall Lucozade sport orange has a great consistent taste, helps me keep hydrated and gives me an extra energy boost when I need it. I would highly recommend this sports drink to anyone who participates in sport.

      All lucozades products are suitable for vegetarians.

      The price of a 500ml bottle is between £1 - £1.50. I have noticed that Wilkinsons are doing an offer on Lucozade sports drinks were you can get 2 bottles for £1.50.

        Disadvantages

        A great tasting chocolate bar

        I've liked Mars bars ever since I tried one playing a game at primary school. For anyone whos interested the aim of the game was to try and roll a six, then put few items of clothing on and finally cut piece off with a fork and knife. Ever since that day Mars bars have become one of my favorite chocolate bars.

        If you've never tried a Mars bars it basicly contains a soft nougat that has a thick layer of caramel on top which is then wrapped with thick milk chocolate. Each Mars bar is suitable for vegetarians and free from Artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

        The packaging of a Mars bar is a firm paper that is black, red and gold in colour. Mars is written on the front of the packaging in red and gold and the background colour is black. Mars are also offical sponsors of the England football team.

        The taste of the Mars bar is very sweet but not to sickly. The thick milk chocolate works well with the soft nougat as it give a smooth creamy chocolate taste and the thick carmel gives the bar an extra sweet taste.

        Each bar contains 250kcal calories (GDA 13%), 34.6g sugar (GDA 38%), 9.9g fat (GDA 14%), saturates 4.8g (GDA 24%), salt 0.23g (GDA 4%).

        Overall I think mars bars taste delicious and sweet that give you an extra energy boost. I do find that more than one bar at time is to sickly for me as the bar is very high in sugar. The Mars bar is at a reasonable price of 50p - 60p and I would highly recommend to any chocolate lover.

          A great survey site for earning a few extra pounds

          GlobalTestMarket is one of the few survey websites im a member of. I've been member of Globaltestmarket for about 7-8 months now and thought it was about time I wrote a review on what globaltestmarket have offer.

          GlobalTestMarket is an American survey site that sends you checks for completing surveys. They ask people from all around the world to complete surveys about anything form going to the cinema to buying electronics.

          >>>>>>>How did I sign up<<<<<<<

          I signed up to GlobalTestMarket by going on there website (www.globaltestmarket.com) and clicking on join at the top of there website. Next I filled in the information that they asked for (Date of birth, email, name and address) and clicked on submit. Once I clicked submit globaltestmarket sent a message with a link to my email account to confirm my globaltestmarket account. Once I clicked on the link my globaltestmarket account was up and running and was ready to recieve surveys. On your account there will be profile surveys that you can complete. You do not get rewarded for completing these surveys but if you complete them it can lead to more survey invites.

          >>>>>>>How do I participate in surveys<<<<<<<

          To participate in surveys you need to be invited to them by Globaltestmarket. There are two ways you can find out if you've been invited to take a survey 1. Check your email account or 2. login in to your account on there website. I usually check my email 1 to 2 times a day to see if I have been invited to any surveys. Sometimes I get 1 survey invite in 2 days and sometimes I get invited to take part in 5 surveys in 1 day. Even though I get lots of surveys invites I often get screened out as I don't match the criteria needed to take part. Out of all the surveys I've been invited to take part in i've probly only qualifed to complete a quatre of them.

          >>>>>>>What do I get for completing a survey<<<<<<<

          For fully completing a survey you will receive market points or sweepstakes. Marketpoints are what you want as when you get to a 1000 you can redeem them for a check of $50 which is around £31. The points you get rewarded depends on how long the surveys is.

          5 to 10mins = 15 marketpoints
          10 to 20mins = 35 marketpoints
          20 to 25mins = 40 marketpoints
          Over 25mins = 60 marketpoints

          Sweepstakes are entries into weekly and monthly competitions. I think the weekly competition is $300 and the monthly one is something around a $1000. You will recieve one sweepstake entry into each of these competitions if you get screened out of a survey. Some surveys will offer you 3 sweepstakes into each competition instead of marketpoints. I've been a member for 7-8 months and have never won in there competitions. When recieving survey invites I always complete the ones that offer me market points first. I only complete sweepstake surveys if there are no market points surveys for me to take part in.

          >>>>>>>What can I use my marketpoints on<<<<<<<

          Market points can be used for checks. When you reach 1000 marketpoints you can redeem them for checks in your currency. On there website it says 1000 marketpoints are worth $50 and in pounds that is around £31. To redeem a 1000 points all you have to do is login to your account on there website and click on rewards. Next click on redeem and check your address details are correct. A few minutes later globaltestmarket will send you message to tell you your check is on its way. It usually takes me 2 to 3 months to reach 1000 market points.

          Checks usually take 6 to 8 weeks to be delivered to the UK as its being sent from Canada. I have recieved two checks that were worth £31 each and they took 6 weeks to be delivered.

          >>>>>>>Do globaltestmarket invite you to take part in anything over than surveys<<<<<<<

          Yes they do, apparently you can be invited to focus groups and product testing but you rarely get invited to any of these. I have never been invited to a focus group but I have been invited to test a product once. I was invited to test a product after completing a survey about alcohol and if I agreed to take part I would recieve a bonus 1000 marketpoints. I jumped at the chance and agreed and was told I would receive the product in 2 weeks. 2 weeks later I received the product in a box and 2 pieces of paper telling my what I had to do to recieve my marketpoints. It basicly said record a 5 min video of yourself drinking the product and giving your opinion of it. A few days after sending my video I recieved a survey asking me what I thought of the product. Once I completed the survey I was told my bonus 1000 marketpoints would be added to my account in the next 28 days. (I completed the survey mid november). After a month and a half I never recieved my bonus marketpoints and was a little dissapointed but the product was free to test so there was 1 or 2 positives. Then out of nowhere I recieved a bonus 1000 marketpoints a few days ago. I checked my marketpoints history and I had been awarded 1000 points for a related survey so Im guessing that was a late payment from the product testing.

          >>>>>>>Overall<<<<<<<

          Overall I think globaltestmarket is one of the best surveys sites you can join that sends you checks not vouchers. Its easy to sign up and use there website, you get lots of surveys invites and if your lucky you may get invited to test a product for some bonus marketpoints. The negatives of the site are you get screened out of surveys alot and checks take 6 to 8 weeks to be delivered but the positives overcome the negatives. This is a survey site I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to make a few extra pounds.

            Great tasting biscuits at a smart price

            Ever since I was a kid my favorite biscuits have been the plain and simple rich tea biscuits. I have tryed a few supermarket brands and mcvities brand of rich tea biscuits and ASDA's Smart Price rich tea biscuits have been my favoirite for a while now.

            The ASDA Smart Price rich tea biscuits packaging is a firm plastic that is white and green in colour (not red and white that is shown in the picture above). The packaging also has ASDA Smart Price written on the front of it.

            Each biscuit is round with little air holes and rich tea is written on the front of each biscuit. The colour of each biscuit is a golden brown colour.

            These biscuits taste great on there own or dunked in a tea. They leave a wheaty sweet taste thats not to sweet or sickly. They are a little dry if eaten on there own and as you crunch into each biscuit crumbs seem to go everywhere. One of the main reasons I buy rich tea biscuits is to dunk in me tea. After 1 to 2 seconds of dunking a biscuit into a cup of tea the biscuit becomes a litte soft and soggy. This taste delicious as the biscuit melts a little in your mouth and still leaves the wheaty sweet taste.

            Overall I think ASDA's rich tea biscuits taste great and are at a bargain price of 29p. Theres 30 - 35 biscuits in each pack so that works out that each biscuit is less than 1p. I prefer ASDA's brand of rich tea biscuits over mcvities as I prefer the taste of ASDA's brand and they are 3 times cheaper. I would highly recommend to any biscuit cruncher or dunker.

            The pack weighs a 300g and these biscuits are suitable for vegetarians. Each biscuit contains gluten, wheat and barley.

            Cheap milk chocolate that tastes great

            The last time I went ASDA I decided to buy the Smart Price milk chocolate by ASDA as it only cost 30p and the bar was quite big.

            The packaging is pretty basic and different from the picture above as the colour of the paper is white and green. Underneath the paper is a silver foil that is wrapped around the chocolate.

            As I opened the packaging and broke off a piece of chocolate I didn't know what to expect but when I put the chocolate in my mouth I was quite surprised how good the taste was. The chocolate was smooth and left a nice creamy taste in my mouth. The chocolate did start to get a little sickly half way through the bar but at 30p you can't complain.

            Overall I think ASDA's Smart Price milk chocolate is a great tasting chocolate bar. Its cheap and tastes a lot better than most other supermarket brands I've tryed. Its not as good as the top brands like Galaxy and Dairy milk but is well worth 30p. I would highly recommend to anyone who likes milk chocolate.

            The bar weighs 100gs
            Contains milk and soya
            May contain traces of nuts or seeds
            Suitable for vegetarians

            A great little money saver

            2 to 3 years ago I was shopping in my local Game store to be asked if I was interested in buying a Game reward card for £3. I asked what the card does and the guy behind the counter basicly said you earn points everytime you purchase something which leads to money off anything instore. So I decided to buy the card as it sounded like it would help me save a few pennys in the long run.

            >>>>>>>How did I get my card<<<<<<<

            I got my card at the counter of my local Game store for £3. They asked for some of my personal information like my name, address, postcode, email and £3. Then a few minutes later I got my Game reward card and was ready to earn points.

            >>>>>>>How to earn points<<<<<<<

            Earning points is easy, you simply pass your card over the counter when you make a purchase in any Game store. If you happen to forget your game reward card when you next shop at Game you can still add points to your card by telling the person behind the counter your name and postcode. If you buy stuff off Games website you can also earn points. First you need to link your card up to your Game account on there website. Then when you make a purchase on there website your points should be added to your card. I have never had points go missing and never had a problem putting points on my reward card. It usually takes 24 hours before your points get added to you reward card. I've never made a purchase on there website as I prefer to shop at stores so I don't know how good the card is with online purchases.

            Game also have extra offers were you can earn extra points on your reward card. If you pre-order a game you get double points on your reward card when you buy the game. I also get leaflets through the post every few months from Game that give me an extra 1000 points when I next purchase anything in-store.

            >>>>>>>How many points do I earn on each purchace and how do I redeem my points<<<<<<<

            Every time you purchase something from game you will recieve 2.5% of that purchase back in points on your card. So if you spend £40 you will recieve £1 of points on your card.

            To redeem money off at a game store you need 1000 points on your reward card and 1000 points = £2.50. To redeem your points just ask the person behind the counter if you can use the points on your reward card . You can only redeem in thousands so if you have 2995 points on your card you will only be able to get £5 off your next purchase and not £7.50.

            >>>>>>>Overall<<<<<<<

            Overall I think this card is a great money saver. It was easy to sign up, its easy to earn points, its easy to redeem points and your points never expire. I have never had a problem with the card over the last 3 years and saved quite a few pounds on games by using my reward card.

            I would highly recommend this card to anyone who buys games regularly or just buys the odd few games a year. 5/5 .

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Good story mode and graphics but everything else seems to be dissapointing

              Need for Speed Run is one of the latest racing games from EA at the moment. I'm not a big fan of Need for Speed games but when I seen the trailer for Need for Speed Run I thought I had to get it. Luckily it was one of the gifts I received at Christmas.

              >>>>>>>Main Menu<<<<<<<

              When you first hit the main menu you will get the choice to race in the run, go on Xbox live or attempt to complete challengers in the challenge series. You can also enter the autolog by pressing the back button on your Xbox controller.

              >>>>>>>The Run<<<<<<<

              In the run you play as character called Jack Rourk. Jack is a small time driver who is in debt to a mob that has put a price on his head. The only way Jack can pay back his debt and remove the price on is head is by winning The Run. The run is a 3,000 mile race across the US against over 200 other drivers.

              As you make your through the run you will have various objectives to complete, some of the objectives will require you to pass a number of opponents before you reach the finish, or you might have to claw back lost time in a time trial against the cloak. If you fail to get to a checkpoint before the time runs out or wreck your car you will be sent back to the previous checkpoint and lose a reset. As you get closer to first place in the run you will meet certain rivals who are also in the run, some rivals want to win by beating you to the finish and some rivals want to win by taking you out of the run permanently. Every rival has their own driving style and their own reason why there in the run.

              As you make your way through each section you will notice the stretch of tarmac changes which means you will never get given time to learn where to brake or where to turn for a shortcut. In one section you will find yourself trying to dodge the busy traffic in Las Vegas and in another section you will be trying to find your way through the icy roads in the snowy mountains. In each section you will find gas stations on the side of the road. If you pull in to these gas stations you will be able change cars and choose different car kits and paint jobs. As you go through each section you will find that certain cars work better in certain environments.

              Another thing you will notice as you go through the run is the new feature EA has added to their high speed racing where you have to press a range of buttons to get through certain scenes. Every now and then these scenes will pop up and pull you out of the racing action, forcing you to press certain buttons on your Xbox controller to get through the scene and back on the road. I really enjoyed these scenes as it was something different from just racing and each scene keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next.

              Even though the storyline is incredibly short and can be easily finished within a few hours I really enjoyed racing through the run. One minute I was racing rivals and opponents the next I was mashing different buttons on my controller to survive. At times it seemed that no matter how fast I was going the other opponents would be the most of 2 seconds behind me but I find that better than being miles in front. The only thing I find annoying in the run is the loading times. It seems to take a well over a minute for each event to load up. At times I feel I could of put the kettle on and made a cuppa before the next race loaded up.

              >>>>>>>Challenge Serious<<<<<<<

              In the challenge serious you basically try and complete a challenge in the fastest time to earn a medal. The medals you can earn are bronze, silver, gold and platinum and there are over 40 challengers to complete. In some challengers you have to beat opponents and in others you have to finish with in a certain time while dodging the rush hour traffic. Every track in the challenge serious is from one of the tracks in the run and you can only choose from a few cars in each challenge.

              I didn't find the challenge serious as fun as racing in the run and after completing a few challenges I got bored of racing round a track just to earn a shiny medal.

              >>>>>>>Xbox Live<<<<<<<

              When you first go on Xbox Live you will be put in a player group were you can invite up to three friends to join your player group before you look for an online lobby. In each lobby you race with up to 7 other players on tracks from the run. Before a race starts everyone in the lobby will vote for which event they want to do. One event could have two long tracks across the desert and the other might have four small tracks in the city. After an event has been chosen a wheel will spin round and whatever it lands will be the bonus prize for the top three players at the end of the event. The bonus prize can be anything from a brand new car to extra xp points. There is also single and team objectives you can try complete in each race to earn extra xp towards your driver level.

              I find Xbox Live good and bad. If the connection is good you can usually get a full lobby of players to race against and each track seems to be well built with lots of room for overtaking. I like the idea of an extra bonus for the top 3 sometimes it's a new car but it's usually extra xp. The annoying thing about Xbox Live is the ridiculous loading times. The loading times seem to go on longer than single player as at times it can take up to 5 mins just for the next race to load up.

              >>>>>>>Overall<<<<<<<

              Overall the graphics and racing in the run is great. The game is fast paced and the cars are how they should be fast with responsive handling. I enjoyed racing through the run there was lots of surprises from trying to survive by pressing a sequence of buttons to racing rivals with unexpected guests. Xbox Live racing is good but half the time you get lagged out or the game crashes and the challenge serious is quite boring as all you do is race round tracks from the run in different cars.

              At £40 I wouldn't recommend Need for Speed the run as there are too many problems with the game. The runs storyline is incredibly short, the loading times are ridiculously long and there are lots of connection problems on Xbox Live. The game is probably worth picking up if it's within the price range of £10 to £20.

              Great tasting chocolate shells

              I use to always eat rolos when I was younger and still buy the odd pack now and again. If your not familar with rolo's they are basicly milk chocolate shaped shells with soft chewy carmel inside.

              Rolo's come in a tube shape packaging of gold foil and dark brown paper. The gold foil is wrapped around the rolos and then the dark brown paper is wrapped around the foil. The paper also has the Rolo's written on the front of it in big written.

              The smooth nestle milk chocolate taste great and combines well with the creamy chewy caramel. As you bite into the chocolate shell the chocolate will start to melt and then the thick chewy caramel will slowly get softer.

              Overall I really enjoy munching through a tube of rolo's. The mixture of milk chocolate and creamy thick caramel works well and each rolo is a reasonalbe size for your mouth. There are 10 -15 rolo's in a pack and a pack of rolos usually cost around 50p. Great for munching in front of the telly or on the go.

                The best tasting mint with a hole

                When it comes to buying mints spearmint polos are the top of my list. I use to buy a pack everyday on my way to college but I have now cut down to a pack every 2 weeks. I usually buy them from wilkinsons for 35-40p.

                Polo's come in a tube shape that are wrapped in a silver foil and then wrapped in a paper. This packaging means that you can just put the tube in your pocket without the mints spilling out everywhere.

                The shape of polo mints are very different from other mints as they are a circle shape with a hole in the middle. They looks just like an O which I think looks alot more interesting than other mints.

                I find the taste of the spearmint polos alot better than the original as there not to strong and leave a sweet and minty taste in your mouth. I usually spend a while eating each polo to get all the sweet and minty taste out of it and then eventually crunch into it. A pack usually lasts me about 2 - 3 days.

                Overall I think spearmint polos are the best mints you can buy as they taste great, are easy to fit in your pocket and have an interesting shape.

                As I said above they usually cost between 35 - 40p

                  Valued opinions is a survey site that rewards you with vouchers for giving your valued opinion. I first heard of valued opinions through the moneysavingexpert website when I was looking for ways of earning a bit of extra money. I decided to sign up which was quick and easy and found that valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join.

                  When I was signing up through there website I had to give them my personal information like name, address, telephone number and email. Next they sent me an email to open my valued opinions account. After I opened my account I had to answer a few questions about my household and then I was up and ready to receive survey invitations. There is also 8 to 9 other categories you can chose to fill in. You don't have to fill these in but if you do it can lead to more survey invitations.

                  Once you've signed up valued opinions will start sending you survey invitations to your email account. They can range form 5 to 30 minutes and you can be rewarded from 25p to £2. I usually get 3 to 5 surveys a week and they usually last between 10 to 20mins. When you complete a survey the amount rewarded will be in the pending credits section in your reward statement on your account. It takes no longer than 28 days for your pending credits to be put into your account. Every now and again if your lucky you might get invited to a two hour online discussion. If you complete these you can get rewarded around £25 but I have only ever received one invitation and I didn't qualify for it.

                  Duration of survey = reward for completing survey
                  5 to 10mins = 25p to 75p, 10 to 15mins = 75p to £1 and 20 to 30mins = £1 to £2

                  Once you have reached £10 in your valued opinions account you can exchange them for high street vouchers or donate it to a charity. The stores you can get vouchers for are Amazon, Argos, Tesco and 10 other stores. They can take up to 28 days to deliver. My first voucher took 4 weeks to deliver and my second only took 2 weeks.

                  Overall valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join as its easy to sign up, you get regular surveys and there are hardly any problems with there website. Its a great way of earning a bit of extra money if you've got a spare 20 minutes in your day. I usually get a £10 voucher once a month and they don't usually expire until 2017. The only thing I find annoying with valued opinions is around half of the surveys im invited to I get kicked out of. This is usually because the survey is only for a certain person like someone who drives or someone who has recently been to the cinema. Apart from that valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join and I would highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to earn a bit of extra money.

                    Disadvantages

                    A good album consistent album

                    Welcome Reality is the first album by dubstep/drum & bass duo Nero. The album has 14 tracks including hit singles Me and You, Guilt and Promises. I first heard of Nero about 4 years ago when they did drum & bass music but like producers such as Chase and Status and Sub Focus they have now moved more towards the dubstep genre of music. I'm not a big fan of Nero but when I was browsing for new music at my local HMV I noticed that this album was on offer for £7 so I thought I would give it a try.

                    Here is track listing of the album:

                    1. 2808 - Intro track that sounds like a strange orchestral sound

                    2. DOOMSDAY - A hard hitting dance drum beat that drops in to a dark futuristic grimey/dubstep sound

                    3. MY EYES - The first track on the album with vocals from singer Alana and has a spooky/rocky/dubstep sound

                    4. GUILT - Got to number 8 in the UK charts and has catchy vocals from Alana Watson with a dubstep/trance sound

                    5. FUGUE STATE - Starts off similar to DOOMSDAY but then drops into a hard hitting dark electro dubstep sound

                    6. ME AND YOU - A guitar/retro/dubstep sound with vocals from Alana and got to number 15 in the UK charts

                    7. INNOCENCE - Has a drum & bass/dubstep sound featuring haunting vocals from Alana Watson

                    8. IN THE WAY - Has low frequency dubstep sounds with spacey vocals from Alana Watson.

                    9. SCORPIONS - This track sounds like Nero have got the knight rider theme tune slowed it down and put a few of there low dubstep sounds in the track. It also has a few vocals from Alana

                    10. CRUSH ON YOU - Sounds like an 80's high pitched vocal pop song with an up to date high tempo dubstep sound

                    11. MUST BE THE FEELING - Is a fusion of 80's pop and a disco house/dubstep sound with Alana Watson on the vocals.

                    12. REACHING OUT - Sounds like an early 90's house track with a slow tempo dubstep sound and has a change of male vocals

                    13. PROMISES - Has a drum beat which drops into a drum & bass/dubstep sound with vocals from Alana Watson and got to number 1 in the UK charts

                    14. DEPARTURE - This track slows the tempo down and starts off with dark slow drum/dubstep beat which then changes to more brighter hopeful dubstep sound.

                    Overall this album is dark and consistent and I like all the tracks on the album. The only problem with the album is some of the tracks tend to get a bit boring because the tempo of the tracks is very consistent which makes them sound a little similar. The album basically takes you on a journey through the eyes of Nero. I would give it a rating of 4/5.

                    I would recommend this album to anyone who likes the tracks already released by Nero or if you listen to artists like Pendulum, Sub focus or Modestep.

                    I brought this album on offer for £7 but the normal price is £9.99 HMV

                      Disadvantages

                      The album has good drum and bass tracks but most of dubstep tracks are poor.

                      UKF Bass Culture is a album with a mixture of dubstep and drum & bass tracks. There are 41 tracks split on to 2 CD's by artist such as Chase & Status, DJ Fresh, Modestep, Wilkinson, Loadstar, Spor and Skillex. When I seen this album I thought a mixture of dubstep and drum and bass this has to be good so I went and brought it from my local hmv as this seemed to be the only new album with drum and bass and dubstep at the time.

                      CD1 has a few drum and bass tracks but mostly dubstep tracks. The drum and bass tracks are pretty good and my favourites would have to be Camo & Krooked - All fall down and Futurebound - Blind Cobblers Thumb (Tantrum Desire Remix). The Dubstep however is pretty poor. There are a few good tracks from the genre by artists Gemini and 16Bit. The rest are poor as it seems UKF have just tried to get the tracks with the heaviest, loudest, robotic sounds.

                      CD 2 has mostly drum and bass tracks and a few dubstep tracks. I enjoyed this cd much more than the first. The cd has most of the popular drum and bass tracks of 2011 so far which sound pretty good. There are only a few dubstep tracks on cd 2 and I enjoyed most of them which I was surprised as I never even heard of most of the artists and was expecting them to be as bad as they was on the first cd.

                      Overall I was expecting a lot more from this album. I enjoyed almost all the drum and bass tracks on the album as there is a wide range of drum & bass tracks to listen to. The dubstep however lets the album down as there are only a few tracks worth listening to.

                      If your a big fan of drum and bass and dubstep and see this album for a fiver its probably worth buying as there are a lot of good drum and bass tracks and a few good dubstep tracks.

                      I brought the album for £9.99 at HMV but I have recently seen at £6.99 in HMV.

                        Tasty foamy sweets at a cheap price

                        The other day my mum got back from her weekly ASDA shopping and got me some of these ASDA smart price foamy fruits.

                        The ASDA smart price foamy fruits come in a white and green colour pack with the smart price label at the top of the pack. The bag weighs 175g and the foamy fruits are free from artificial colours and flavourings.

                        When I opened the pack I noticed there was 3 different shapes and flavours which were orange, strawberry and banana. When I first bit into the different flavours I noticed you get strong burst of flavour which lasts about 5 seconds then disappears. With the orange flavour you get a taste of orange, the strawberry a taste of strawberry and the banana a taste of banana.

                        Overall at 30p a pack I think I will be buying them again sometime in the future. They taste the same as other foamy sweets but these have a extra fruity taste when you first bite into them. I would highly recommend them to any one who likes foamy sweets.

                        Disadvantages

                        Tastes delicious but not enough chocolate bites for the price of £2

                        I was shopping in co-op the other day and seen these twirl bites on offer for a £1 so I decided to give them a try. The last time I had a twirl bar was years ago and the first thing I could remember about them was they fell to pieces when you bit into them. You don't have that problem with these twirl bites as they are basically small pieces of twirl bars.

                        Twirl Bites are small pieces of milk chocolate that melt in your mouth. They are cubed shape and fit in your mouth easily. They are basically the same as a twirl bar but there in a bite size shape. The colour of the pack is usually purple with yellow writing and to open the pack you simply tear the top off. The bag weighs 165g and a serving contains the following of your daily guideline amount 220 Calories (11% of GDA), Sugar 23g (26% of GDA), Fat 13g (18% of GDA), Saturates 8g (39% of GDA) and Salt 0.1g (2% of GDA).

                        I think these twirl bites are much better than the twirl bars because the pieces are small enough to fit in your mouth and the chocolate melts and crumbles in your mouth which tastes delicious. The downside is the bag is usually only half full and to say there classed as a share size bag there isn't many pieces in the bag.

                        The usual price for twirl bites is around £2. At £2 I would probably buy some other chocolate pouches as there isn't many chocolate bites in the pouch and there is other chocolate I prefer.

                        Overall Twirl Bites taste great and if I see them on offer for a £1 I would definitely buy them again. The downside is for the normal price of £2 there isn't many twirl bites.

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Great for dry and sensitive skin

                        E45 Moisturising Lotion is a lotion that soothes, softens and relieves dry and sensitive skin. The colour of the bottle is mainly white with blue writing and comes in 200ml and 500ml bottles. It can be used anywhere on the body, face and hands to care for dry and sensitive skin. On the back of the bottle it says its suitable for the whole family including babies. Only for external use and avoid contact with eyes. If you accidentally get some of the lotion in your eyes rinse thoroughly with clean water.

                        I first started to use E45 lotion over a year ago when I noticed the skin on back of my hands was really dry and started to crack. I think the materials I use at college sand, lime and gypsum must of caused my skin to dry up and crack. My mum said I should try using E45 lotion to help soften and relive the dry skin on the back of my hands. So I went and brought a 200ml bottle at £2.79p from Wilkinson. After using the E45 Lotion on my hands I noticed the difference immediately as the skin on the back of my hands felt softer and smother. Ever since that day I have been using E45 Lotion and it never disappoints. I use it every morning before college (2 days a week) or when my skin feels a little dry and it keeps my skin soft and supple all through the day. I have tried using cheaper brands like Wilkinson's brand but they don't really work and leave my hands feeling greasy.

                        Overall E45 Lotion is easy to rub in, non-greasy, works quickly and helps keep my hands soft and supple. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has dry and sensitive skin.

                        A 200ml bottle cost between £2 - £4

                        A 500ml bottle costs about £5.99
