My partner originally bought this as the price had been reduced (to half price) due to sell by date. Because she knows I love anything lemon and thought it would be nice to give it a try.
It is Lemon sauce sandwiched between Limoncello soaked sponges topped with a limoncello liqueur mousse with a Valencian lemon glaze avec candid lemon peel.
Singularly the layers had their own had their faults. The Mousse was a bit too heavy on its own. The sponge tasted bitty/grainy, but that could be due to the fact it is soaked in the liqueur, and the glaze had no taste to me. But I suppose you're not meant to eat the layers singularly it's been made to be eaten as a whole.
The layers combined tasted fantastic I could have easily eaten both portions (but my other half wouldn't give me hers lol). I would definitely happily eat it again but not at its original price (perhaps if it's reduced again) as it is just too extravagant for our family's budget.
I could have done with bigger portions, and if the portions were bigger I might consider paying its original price, Sainsbury's do, make and supply a bigger gateau, but the price rises with the portion size.
Firstly I think it only fair I let you know I am a big fan of Nickelback and I am going to see them in October 2012 at the O2 in London.
I pre-ordered this and was so excited when my postman finally pushed through my letter box, I ripped the plastic off, opened the case and shoved it straight into my laptop. First listen I think I was still excited by the fact I had actually received it and wasn't listening properly as my first thought was that it was their best album to date......... It is a very good album but not as good as Dark Horse or All The Right Reasons (love them!), and to be honest this album is starting to sound the same as the others.
That said this is a very good album. A good mix of ballads and feel good party rock. A must for any Nickelback fan!
I am a big fan of James Patterson and have read most of the Alex Cross and women's murder club books. So for me reading this book was a no brainer.
It was as every book written by him a page turner, with his usual style of short chapters that kept me continuously saying "just one more chapter then I will put it down!" (And lying to myself.)
I would say it has to be one of his most disturbing books I have read to date, with the opening few chapters being quite frankly disgusting, and the "villain(s)" being severely disturbed didn't deter me from finishing it.... Which is where I personally became a little disappointed with it, it felt rushed, like all the work went in to detailing some very gruesome crimes throughout the book.
Nothing was explained ..." who was telling the truth?" the protagonist didn't even care to look for the truth in any which way, and as he was an ex- cop and writer I find it sloppy even at best .....and the way the villain was dealt with.... "Was that it?" ...."That simple?" and then it was left with the protagonist and his fiancée in hiding, leaving it open for a sequel either that or the authors thought ending it with the line they lived happily ever after was a bit too fairy tale like.
Is everyone happy? ;oD
Coca cola is by far my favourite soft drink, I would (and so would friends and even acquaintances) I am an addict! I can just about go 24hours without having a can or 500ml bottle. I must say it has to be the "full fat" versions as I think the sugar substitute in diet versions completely ruins the taste.
No matter where you do your supermarket shop there is always some great offer on coca cola whether it's by one get one free or money off. And the variety of ways which you can purchase them from a single 330ml can to 3 litre bottle (50% extra free) available from some shops, and even the new pocket size bottles.
I am also loving their commitment to petroleum free plastic, by using plant based and recycled plastics to make up to 47.5% their plastic bottles if you visit their website you can find out for yourself.
Used to collect their coke points but after getting my Sony camera (for 800points) the rewards seem to be limited to prize draws or coca cola merchandise that I have no interest in as it has been over a year since I won anything. But I did win 3 sets of concert tickets to the O2 in London prior
