      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Introduction I know that I haven?t done any reviews for a while but I?m running out of ideas for things to review!! Plus nothing that I suggest will come on to dooyoo. Like some of my previous reviews, I have got this from school, seeing as they ran out of Fanta Fruit Twist!! But I do find coke and diet coke just as refreshing as one another!! With coke being another thing I suggested that still hasn?t come through yet!! If you know why it?s called ?diet? coke, could you leave me a comment telling me why? (I haven?t a clue to be honest)!! * * * * * What it is Well diet coke is just like coke, just I think it tastes a bit different. You probably guessed it?s a drink!! On the bottle it says: Low calorie soft drink with vegetable extracts with sweetners. * * * * * Taste It is nice, and as I said it tastes a little different from normal coke. This drink doesn?t exactly taste nice when warm!! Definietly better ice - cold. * * * * * Bottle I got this 500ml bottle from school as I said at the beginning of this review. The label is silver (where as the original coke bottles hve red) and it says Diet Coke on it. At the back it says all the usual information: Nutritional, contacts and ingredients. The writing was in black (mostly). * * * * * Nutritional Per 100ml ENERGY 1.6kj/ 0.4kcal CARBOHYDRATE 0g PROTEIN 0g FAT 0g As you can see there doesn?t seem to be much there, but that?s what it says on the bottle. Also I have said this but anyway: Best Served Ice Cold. * * * * * <
      br>Contacts If you wish to write with a complaint then here is the address for you (I don?t see why there would be a complaint, but anyway): coca-cola enterprises ltd. uxbridge UB8 1EZ. If you wish to ring the call free on: 0800 - 227711 Or you can visit the website for more information: www.coca-cola.com * * * * * Conclusion Well I give this five out of five stars!! Because I don?t think there is really any thing wrong with it, but there are loads of advantages: Taste, free phone, address and website on the packet!! Loads. Highly recommended!! Hope I helped!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Introduction I was surfing the site for something to review, seeing as I hadn?t done one in quite a while, and I came across these and my mum brought these the other day at shopping, so I went straight away to get them!! I suppose the are pretty much like Cadbury?s Twirls and they are Cadbury?s but they have very thin wafers inside and they are quite small. Seeing as it?s Cadbury?s it must be great!! After all Cadbury?s is the best!! I like the title of it: Time out, you can have them during a break from all that work, with the title making sense!! I haven?t these for ages, so they tasted even better when I tried them earlier!! * * * * * What it is For those who don?t know, they are in packets of two (normally). They are thin chocolate covered wafer fingers with milk chocolate in the centre. You can get them really big, but then you only get one in a packet!! * * * * * Taste Well as I have said they are chocolate with wafers in, so it obviously tastes like chocolate, but as you get closer to the middle the wafer and chocolate make a nice mixture!! So it tastes nice: to sum it all up!! * * * * * Packet I don?t have the actual big packet (because someone! threw it away) but the small ones have a main colour of blue and the writing is in red and white (mostly white). On the top it just says Cadbury?s Time Out. On the bottom it has the usual, contacts, nutritional info and ingredients. There isn?t really anything on the sides, apart from the Best Before Date. * * * * * Nutritional Per finer ENERGY Kj 240/ Kcal 60 PROTEIN 0.6g CARBOHYDRA
        TE 6.6g FAT 3.2g The time out must be stored in a cool dry place. * * * * * Contacts If you wish to write to them then this is the address in which you should write to: Cadbury LTD. P.O Box 7011 Bournville Birmingham B30 2PY UK If you wish to visit the website then go to this website: www.cadbury.co.uk There is no phone number, although there probably is one on the big packet!! * * * * * Conclusion Well there is only one disadvantage, there is no phone number on the wrapper, but there might be on the big packet!! But there are many advantages!! Taste, address, website!! So five out of five stars!! Hope I helped!!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Introduction In my last review I was explaining how much I hated Fanta Apple Splash!! But today, I will be explaining how much I love Fanta Fruit Twist!! And it?s a nice welcoming orange colour - not like ugly green!! While I was looking for something to review before, I also came across this!! I will be saying practically the opposite to before!! And you know in my last review I said nothing had come through to dooyoo yet (that I suggested), well that is still the case, and I am growing impatient people!! Yet again I don?t know why it?s called Fruit Twist, Twisting has nothing to do with it!! It says that it tastes best Ice Cold, when quite simply, it taste nice all the time, and I know this sounds really weird, but it does taste nice when it?s warm!! (Yes, yes!! I have already told you it?s weird)!! * * * * * What it is Well, it is a drink as you probably guessed. There are quite a few fruits in it, like orange, peach and passion fruit (which are actually nice mixed together). Yet again this is a soft drink!! * * * * * Taste Well it obviously has fruits in it (hence the name). The label is an orangey/ red colour. It say Fanta FRUIT TWIST and then it has the usual ingredients, contacts and nutrition. The bottle is also recyclable. These also come in different sizes, again I got one from school (500ml) and the same friend has these in cans, which are 330ml I think anyway, but that?s not enough for me!! I need more!! * * * * * Nutrition Per 100ml ENERGY 84kj 20kcal CARBOHYDRATE 4.7g PROTE
          IN 0g Fat 0g As you can see, there is no protein or fat, like with the apple splash. (In fact they are roughly the same). * * * * * Contacts If you wish to write to them then here is the address: Coca-cola Enterprises LTD. Uxbridge UB8 1EZ Or if you wish to phone then: 0800 227711 (Free phone) But there doesn?t seem to be a website address. * * * * * Conclusion Well there is only one disadvantage, which is there is no website address on the bottle. But there are many advantages!! Taste, address, free phone careline and don?t forget the nice colours!! So I give this five out of five stars!! Hope I helped!!

            • "No address"

            Introduction I thought it was about time I wrote another review, and nothing I suggested has come through to dooyoo yet ?sigh? and so I was searching dooyoo for something to review and I came across Fanta apple splash!! I happened to have these from school before I went on that trip I said about (it was great by the way, I literally had to crawl in mud, but let?s not wander away from the subject)!! I saw it on dooyoo and realised I had in my fridge!! (None of these means to say that I actually like it)!! But I haven?t a clue why it?s called apple ?splash? that name is pathetic!! Just Fanta apple would be fine ?tut?. It says tastes best ice cold, but it doesn?t taste nice at all!! And it repeats ?new? all over the packet, but sooner or later it?s got to be old!! * * * * * What it is Well, Fanta apple is a Fanta drink. There are also other fruits in it, like kiwi and lime, and they really don?t taste nice when mixed together!! I suppose I should also mention it?s a soft drink!! * * * * * Taste Well as it is called apple splash - it obviously tastes like apple and if I am doing a review on food or drink, I taste it while writing, and it really isn?t pleasant!! It is leaving an after taste in my mouth, it?s horrible!! * * * * * Bottle The bottle can come in different sizes, for example I have a 500ml one from school, and my friend has a 2litre bottle (or something like that) from a supermarket. The label is green and says New Fanta APPLE SPLASH low sugar. All around the sides it has the usual (ingredients, contacts and nutritional information. The lid is also green, just like the liquid, very off putting!! * * * * * &#
            78;utritional Per 100ml ENERGY 84kj 20kcal CARBOHYDRATE 4.7g There is no protein or fat. The bottle is also recyclable. * * * * * Contacts There is no address or phone number on the bottle just the website address: www.coca-cola.co.uk/nutrition No address or phone number!! What a surprise!! * * * * * Conclusion Well as I have said, there are many downfalls: The taste, and there is no phone number on the bottle and no address on the bottle!! But there is a website address, and that?s all!! So I give it One star out of Five!! Hope I helped!!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Introduction Well first of all, I?d like to say: I?m going away on a school trip for three days!! So I won?t be writing reviews for a while!! But I will have a good time, and will miss you all!! And that is the reason I brought these!! So I could sneak them in and eat them in the middle of the night!! And I had had them once or twice before and thought they were lovely!! Making a few exceptions!! But I don?t know why they are called Haribo Starmix, there aren?t any star shaped sweets in there (unless of course they have changed since I last had them), but the coca cola bottles are lush!! * * * * * What it is For anyone who hasn?t a clue what I?m on about then: Here you go - Haribo is a make, they make small sweets that come in big packs. The actual sweets however are fruit flavoured and sweet foam gums!! * * * * * Taste Well as I said above: They are fruit flavoured, so quite simply, they taste fruity and some taste different: Such as the coke flavoured sweet, that obviously tastes like coke!! * * * * * Packet The packets come in different shapes and sizes, for example: My friend got the same haribos as me but they were in a circular plastic tub (475g) and the packet I have is just well, a normal packet (225g)!! The main colour is blue and the writing is in mostly white and a little red. On the front it says Haribo Starmix and then there is a transparent bit next to a rocket with a big round face poking through the window on the rocket!! On the back the transparent bit carry?s on. It also has all the usual: Ingredients, nutritional information and contacts. It also says how much the packet weighs and the Best Before End date. * * * *
              * Nutritional Per 100g ENERGY 1463 Kj/ 344 Kcal PROTEIN 6.6g CARBOHYDRATES 79g Of which sugars 63.4g FAT 0.2g Of which saturates 0.1g FIBRE 0.3g SODIUM Trace This product is also acceptable for gluten and cows milk FREE diets. * * * * * Contacts If you wish to write to Haribo then write to the following address: Dunhills plc. p.o box 1 Pontefract WF8 1NJ England Or you could go to the website: www.haribo.com But I am afraid that there is no phone number stated on the packet. * * * * * Conclusion Well to sum everything up these are lovely, but you can get a few bad ones, which is a downfall. And there is no phone number on the packet, so I give this product 4 stars out of 5. But there are many good things, like the good sweets (ones that taste nice)!! And there is an address on the packet and a website address, which is good. So I hope I helped!!

                • "Sticks to teeth!!"

                Introduction Now, I know everyone loves popcorn, but not me!! I hate popcorn!! It sticks to your teeth and everything!! These are toffee flavoured, and I normally like toffee, but popcorn is just yuck!! But the problem is: We get these every week, because my dad loves them so much!! Every time he has them he takes two packs at a time, and decides the best ones and eats them last!! On the packet it says: Have you been butterkist yet? Well my answer is NO and quite frankly, I don?t want to be butterkist by that popcorn!! * * * * * What it is For those of you who don?t know, well, you have probably guessed, but anyway - This is popcorn, ?Butterkist popcorn? apparently!! But there are great for cinemas, even if you don?t like them, because you don?t have to eat them, you can throw them at people in front of you!! (Not that I do that of course, my friends do though, I just laugh)!! * * * * * Taste Well, as I have said these are horrible, and they feel all sticky!! And I have also said that they are toffee flavoured, so obviously: They taste like toffee!! They are actually 70 percent toffee!! So that means 30 percent actual popcorn!! That?s just stupid, they aren?t toffees they?re popcorn!! Oh!! And did I mention that they are horrible?! * * * * * Packet Well, we get really big packets, that have six individual packets inside that. The main colour for the each packet is red, and all the writing is in white or yellow. On the front of the individual packets it says Butterkist Toffee (that?s it). On the back it has all the usual information: Ingredients, nutritional information and contacts (more about that later). As I said above it asks if you have been b
                utterkist yet, that is also on the back. * * * * * Nutritional Per 100g ENERGY 1659kj/ 393kcal PROTEIN 2.9g CAROHYDRATE 77.2g FAT 8.1g The popcorn should also be stored in a cool, dry place, and the packet is recyclable. * * * * * Contacts If you want to write, and send the whole package then this is the address: The Kernel at Butterkist Trebor Basset Ltd. FREEPOST MID 20061 Birmingham B30 2QZ UK If you wish to visit their website, then this is the address in which you go to: www.butterkist.co.uk Or if you want to phone, then you can?t, quite simply because they haven?t put one on the packet!! Surprise, Surprise, well actually I?m not!! Conclusion Well, you already know that I don?t like them, so the taste is a big down fall!! And the fact that there is no phone number on the packet is another big problem!! But I can see why some people would like it, it?s toffee, I like toffee, I just don?t like popcorn!! And they have got an address and a website address stated on the packet. But overall I would have to say horrible!! Stay away from them!! If you don?t like toffee then these are definitely not for you!! And if you don?t like popcorn then these are not for either!! Well, I hope I helped!!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Introduction I heard about miniclip.com from a friend. They said they thought it was great and that I should try it out, because I like to play internet games. So when I had the chance to go on it, I did!! I thought it was good, but not as good as my friend, because I couldn?t figure out how to play some of the games!! Even when I just tried their number 1 game (Bush Shootout) I couldn?t figure out how to move or shoot!! So I was stuck there!! There seems to be loads of games on there, and different categories as well - like puzzles, sport, adventure, multiplayer, shoot ?em up and dancing shows. Well I think that?s all there is!! * * * * * What it is You have probably figured this out, but just in case you haven?t: Miniclip.com is a website, that you can play games on for free. And as I said: There are different categories, so you are bound to find one that you like. The actual address is: http://www.miniclip.com/Homepage.htm but for short you ca just type: Miniclip.com that?s it, then it will take you to the miniclip.com homepage. * * * * * Homepage The homepage has a blue background with white information box?s (By that I mean the links to the games/ stuff to do). The homepage isn?t very long either. Top At the top of the page it says miniclip.com in orange writing and next to there is an ad - this one happens to be something about Craig David!! It also has links to go straight to a specific category or you can download a game. Right On the right hand side it says what the top ten games on the sight are and there are links to go straight to those games. There is a link where it takes you to your e - mail so that you can share the page with yo
                  ur friends, and there is a link to win money!! Left All that there is on the left is: Miniclip latest and beneath that it says Miniclip classics. Middle In the middle it lists all the categories and the top five games in each category. Just above those it has an advertisement that changes every five (ish) seconds, it goes through different games on the website. Bottom All it says on the bottom is: Terms and conditions (which is a link) and ©2004 Miniclip limited. Literally that is all it says at the bottom!! * * * * * Annoying things So far I have had no pop - ups, not like here on dooyoo (I get loads). I don?t have a pop - up swatter or anything like that!! * * * * * Conclusion I have to give this website 5 stars!! It?s free, has a wide range of games (so you?ll have something to do) and it doesn?t have any pop - up advertisements (a good thing for those without pop - up swatters)!! There is one annoying thing though, I can?t figure out to play some of the games!! But as I said there are other games, so I?ll just play one of those, or do a puzzle!! But that?s barely a downfall, so definitely 5 stars!!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Introduction In my daily rummaging for some food (chocolate), I came across some magnums, they were obviously in the freezer, I love these!! First of all I love chocolate, then comes ice - cream!! So with it being all - in - one, you can imagine how much I love them!! (Or can you)?! I have said in quite a few of my reviews, that I couldn?t live with out that certain products, and this is absolutely no exception!! Yet again another one of those must haves!! I will tell you about them, but you can?t have any of mine!! I?m having them - not you!! And this was even better because the shop was having a any two for £3, but there are only three in a box - I need more!! * * * * * What they are Well, as I have said - they are chocolate and ice - cream mixed together, making them: Ice blocks!! (Lovely ice blocks - very lovely)!! They are made by walls. The chocolate is a shell around the vanilla - flavoured ice - cream (I prefer chocolate, but you can?t go wrong with these)!! * * * * * Taste As I keep mentioning, and I am so sorry about that, they are absolutely lovely!! (Surprise Surprise)!! There is chocolate and there is ice - cream so obviously there is a taste of chocolate and there is a taste of ice - cream, and well that is about it!! Oh! One last thing - did I mention they are looooooooovely?!!! * * * * * Packet On the front of the packet there is a picture of one of the magnums, and it clearly states the offer that I mentioned: any 2 for £3!! On the back it has a load of information that quite frankly I couldn?t be bothered to read, it also says that in other languages as well!! When the front is in English, I really don?t see the point!! A bad thing about the
                    packet is the fact that it is made out of card board, so it doesn?t protect that well, because it goes all soggy!! Not like plastic ones, they are much better!! * * * * * Nutrition It doesn?t say anything about nutrition but it does say that it should be stored at roughly -18C it doesn?t say any more!! ?tut? Contacts The address is: Wall?s Ice Cream Ltd, Station Avenue, Walton - on Thames, Surrey There is no website address or phone number as far as the eye can see!! * * * * * Conclusion Right, well to sum everything I have to say lovely, they are the best!! A definite 5 stars out of 5 stars!! A downfall is that there is no website address or phone number on the packet!! But at least they taste great!! Oh! And don?t rush out and buy loads - I want some too!! Well I hope I helped, which is what I am meant to do!! Thank you for reading!!

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Introduction Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate? Where should I start?! Well I suppose I should mention the chocolate facts that I found out, and they should be correct, I?ve done my research for this review!! And where should we go from there? You ask, well, you will just have to read and see!! Facts ~fat~ A 1.5 oz milk chocolate bar contains 13 grams of fat in it. However if it?s a dark chocolate bar that you want to know about then the answer is: 12 grams of fat!! So stick to dark chocolate, if you have to have chocolate, that is!! ~ Caffeine~ The amount of caffeine ingested when people eat chocolate in normal quantities is very small. One ounce of milk chocolate, for example, contains 6 mg of caffeine, little more than the amount found in a cup of decaffeinated coffee. Moreover, there have been no reports in the scientific literature of any health problems among children or adults as a result of the caffeine consumed in chocolate. ~Sodium~ According to the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, the maximum Recommended Daily Allowance for sodium is 1,100 to 3,300 mg daily (A bit of info that might come in handy at some point)!! A 1.5 oz milk chocolate bar contains 41 mg, while the same size dark chocolate bar contains only 5 mg On the other hand, a 1.5 oz serving of iced devil's food cake has a whopping 241 mg - many times more than chocolate bars (not sure whether it?s many times tastier though)!! Moving On Now that?s enough of the facts for a while, now you can read about facts for valentines day, Easter and keeping your choc at it?s best!! ~At It?s Best~ Those delicious chocolate bars of ours are delicate and so you need to look after them, so follow these
                      steps and you will be fine!! Keep the chocolate in a cool, dry place. The ideal storage location is around 65 degrees Fahrenheit and 50% humidity. A range of approximately 10% in either direction will not have any adverse effect. The normal air conditioned room provides adequate protection. The chocolates may be frozen for up to six months. If frozen, the chocolates should be wrapped in double air-tight sealed plastic freezer bags (or equivalent materials). The chocolates should remain in the bags when being thawed until they return to room temperature. This will keep moisture from condensing on the chocolate. Do not store near heat or in direct sunlight. The light will fade the colour and the elevated temperature will cause tackiness and melting. Chocolate readily absorbs other flavours and odours. Do not store near chemicals, cleaning solvents, perfumes, air freshener, etc. ~valentines~ Red and white confections became popular, with red representing the "passion", and white the "purity" of love. By the turn of the century, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate began to appear in the confectionery shops from coast to coast. As the candy-giving custom grew, American colonists made homemade candies with love notes scratched in the surface. By the mid-nineteenth century, candy-makes were preparing deliciously flavoured sugar lozenges pressed into hearts and imprinted with words of love -- the beginning of the modern-day conversation heart. ~Halloween~ Halloween has "sweetened" considerably through the centuries. Its evolution can be traced from ancient Celtic rites where Druids probably offered human sacrifices all the way to the mild pranks and "Trick or Treat" safaris of today. ~Sweetest day?~ Now, I have
                      never heard of this, but some of you will have and some of you won?t have, so if you don?t know what it is, then hear you go: Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October as a day to make someone happy. It is an occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, aged, and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed. Sweetest Day is not based on any single group's religious sentiment or on a family relationship. It is a reminder that a thoughtful word or deed enriches life and gives it meaning. Because for many people remembering takes the form of gift-giving (chocolate) in a caring way. My favourite Well, I have to say, I love most chocolate, in fact (practically) the only choc that I don?t like is chocolate that has nuts in it!! My favourite make would have to be Cadbury?s!! Mmm? they are my absolute favourite, there is no denying that!! My favourite bar from them has to be? (few hours later)? Umm? well, actually (even after all that waiting) I don?t think that I can choose!! Hope I helped and thanks so much for reading!!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        ~~Introduction: This review is about the good things, the bad things and why I love: chocolate!! I have loads of chocolate, all the time!! In fact earlier on today I made some chocolate buns, 12 chocolate buns, now there are only 2!! My mum had one, so did my dad, my brother had two so that means I have eaten 6!! (Such a pig)!! I have to admit that I am a chocoholic!! I love all chocolate (except nuts) and the way it melts in your mouth, and I love it when it is completely melted and you have to spoon it out of a bowl!! DELICIOUS!! ~~Weight Gain: Cons: There is a load of fat in chocolate, in fact every 50 or 60g of choc contains as much fat as a tablespoon of butter!! That is a lot of fat, meaning, that is a lot of weight gain!! Pros: No single food, including chocolate, can be blamed for the cause of gaining weight. Obesity and putting on weight are really complex issues, and not completely down to what you are eating ? exercise, genetics, diet, etc. All of these play an important part. Also some people, don?t gain a lot of weight when they eat chocolate - I don?t gain much and I eat loads!! ~~Heart Disease: Cons: As I have said, chocolate causes people to gain weight, and if you are obese then your chances of heart disease are increased. Pros: Cocoa butter is similar to polyunsaturated fats in the diet, and so is unlikely to raise cholesterol, so stick with quality chocolate high in cocoa butter. And some chocolate bars are full of antioxidants, which have been seen to lower the chance of heart disease. It also helps keep arteries clean. ~~Tooth Decay: Cons: Chocolate is a sugary food, and sugary foods are a big cause of tooth decay. Pros: Chocolate contains proteins that help to build calcium in the teeth. Certain ingredients in the chocolate help your teeth in other ways as well such as: slowing down bacteria around teeth and reducing plaque. ~~Stress: Cons: There are no cons for this subject!! Pros: Chocolate is a natural stress reducer as it releases some sort of chemical in the brain that must get you worked up or something!! It's is also high in magnesium this helps stabilise those moods that we all get from time to time!! ~~Giving up: I tried cutting back and limiting the amount of chocolate consumed every day. It didn't really work. I suppose if you are addicted, it won?t work!! Now I think I eat more than I used to!! Chocolate is so satisfying though, more so than virtually any other food. Yes, really! It has over 500 aromas and flavours that give maximum pleasure to the taste buds. So I don?t think I could ever give Chocolate up!! And I mean ever!! ~~Conclusion: Well as you can see there are many pros and cons to chocolate, but there are more pros than cons, and I could never change my mind about chocolate!! Chocolate tastes good and makes us feel good, there is no doubt about it, chocolate is great!! And I am proud to be addicted!!

                          Disadvantages

                          Introduction These just happen to be lying around in our fridge because my brother likes them. I saw them and decided to tell you all what I think of them!! Well I don?t like these, I don?t like these one little bit, well actually I do like one little bit - the chocolate on the outside, but I am a chocolate lover, so it is my duty to love it!! But I hate the middle!! I have a pack of eleven in front of me, god that is too many!! But at least they are only snack size!! Normally I would say the bigger the better, but that all changes for now - the smaller the better!! * * * * * What it is Well I have clearly stated that bounty?s are: Horrible!! But seriously they are small (should be small anyway) pieces of coconut wrapped in a chocolate shell, now I hate coconut so I do hate them, but if you are a coconut lover, like my brother, then these are probably for you!! * * * * * Taste Ahh? the taste, the best part - or well it should be, but it isn?t, would you believe!! But if I correct it, then the opening sentence would be: Eww? the taste the worst part!! Well, the outside is a chocolate shell so that simply tastes of chocolate!! And the inside is coconut, so that simply tastes of coconut!! So that pretty much sums up the taste, oh! One last thing: Did I mention it?s disgusting? * * * * * Packet The main colours are blue and white - with the front being blue, with word BOUNTY spread madly over the packet - which clearly states what they are called!! In the bottom right corner it says 11 snack size bars. On the bottom it has the usual nutrition, ingredients, contacts, as I said the usual!! The main colour for the back is white with black writing. * * * * * Nutrition Per piece ENERGY 563kj/134kcal PROTEIN 1.1g CARBOHYDRATE 16.1g FAT 7.3g These should be sto
                          red in a cool place, ours are stored in the fridge, and they seem ok, apart from the fact that they taste horrible!! * * * * * Contacts If you wish to write to them, for any reason (the taste) then this is the address: Masterfoods UK Melton Mowbray Leicestershire LE13 0BR And then we have the, oh maybe not!! Where are they?! There is no phone number, or website address!! That isn?t very good is it?! * * * * * Conclusion Well to sum everything up: The good thing about bounty?s is that they have a chocolate shell on the outside. And that would be the only good thing about them!! But there are many downfalls. 1) The fact that there is coconut in there!! 2) There is no phone number. 3) There is no website address. 4) Taste HORRIBLE!!! So there you have it, I recommend that you do not get these!! I give them one star!!!

                            Introduction Well first of all, I have to say that I haven?t been here for a while because we our computer crashed, so we had to get a new one (we got it yesterday morning) but then we got the wrong internet connection with it, so it?s all gone mad here!! I am reviewing the luscious, the amazing, BUTTONS!! Which is yet again another one of our weekly buys. These little angels are normally gone before the end of the week, but my mum made these gorgeous chocolate butterfly cakes ?mmm? so I?ve been eating them all week instead (but lets not wander too far away from the subject)!! You can even enjoy the packet, due to the fact, or should I say joke!! They have one on every packet, and one on the big packet that holds all the little packets!! They are extremely tasty!! Oh, and they just happen to be round, another round chocolate review for me. * * * * * What it is Buttons are chocolate, they are flat, round shaped and lovely to eat!! I suppose the jokes are rubbish, but at least they try!! They aren?t messy at all, they?re all neat and tidy, make a great snack - don?t forget the milk!! * * * * * Taste Ahh? after all the taste is the best part (in most food). It tastes like chocolate, obviously, but it is really good, there is something about it that makes even better than perfect!! It is? delicious!! The taste is far better than the jokes!! (they truly are rubbish)!! * * * * * Packet The one I have in front of me has 15 individual packets within it. Every single one (including big packet) have all the same design. On the front there is a picture of a button, and they say Cadburys (in fancy writing) and Buttons made with dairy milk milk chocolate. And no I didn?t just make a typo by saying milk milk that?s what it says on the packet!! Madness!! On the back it has contacts and ingredients (coming up soon) and ingredients, Best Be
                            fore Date and it says the packet is recyclable. Oh and lets not forget the joke - picking up random packet - Aha right? Why did the button cross the road? He wanted to see his flatmate. (YAWN) That has to be the oldest and most lame joke around, its just awful!! * * * * * Nutrition Per bag ENERGY 315Kj/75Kcal PROTEIN 1.1g CARBOHYDRATE 8.1g FAT 4.3g And some milk, after all it is Cadbury?s!! * * * * * Contacts If you want to write to them then this is the address: Cadbury ltd. Po box 7009 Bournville Birmingham B30 2PX UK Or phone: 0800818181 Or visit the web address: www.cadbury.co.uk * * * * * Conclusion Well, over all I give this 4 stars not five, because the taste is great, it looks great and all of that, but the jokes just get annoying, I mean about seven or eight of these had the exact same joke!! But it did have all the information you need, and the website is great, so enjoy them. Hope I helped!!

                              Disadvantages

                              Sorry that there aren?t capital letters, I tried chuckleweb, but it wouldn?t work!! Introduction We get Maltesers nearly every single week, and do you want to know why? Well, the answer is quite simply: they are lovely!! (But they are a bit too small!! They should be bigger. The bigger, the better)!! I just saw them in the fridge (when I was getting my lunch) a minute ago, and because they are so tasty, I wanted to share the delight of these tiny angels with everyone. In front of me, on my desk I have a big pack and within that there are fun size packs!! Course they?re fun, they?re chocolate!! And yummy with that!! * * * * * What they are Maltesers are small round balls of delicious honeycomb covered in a lovely thin layer of chocolate!! And this specific pack costs a very low price. It costs £1.99!! I don?t know how many packs there are exactly, but there are at least 10 or 11!! * * * * * Taste Well as I said above: They are small round balls of honeycomb with a thin layer of chocolate, so obviously there is a chocolate taste in there and a honeycomb taste!! But there are moulded together in your mouth and believe me they are loooovely. And to make it even better, they melt in your mouth (after the moulding together) and it is so gorgeous!! I couldn?t live without them, ever!! * * * * * Packet Well, as I have already said, I don?t know exactly how many small packets there are (due to the fact that a few have already been pigged, I can?t count exactly). But there are at least ten ? oops, and the one in my hand makes 11!! The main colour is red and the word Maltesers is repeated insanely in the colour white!! On the front it says ?Maltesers Fun Size BAGS? and in the top left hand corner it claims the amazing price ? £1.99. On the back it has the usual ? nutritional information (about that later), ingredients and contacts
                              (more on that later). * * * * * Nutrition Per 100g ENERGY 2028Kj/484 Kcal PROTEIN 7.8g CARBOHYDRATE 61.5g FAT 22.9g This product should be stored in a cold place, like your fridge!! You don?t want them to go all gooey and melt do you? * * * * * Contacts First of all we have the address: Masterfoods UK Melton Mowbray Leicestershire LE13 0BR And then we have the, oh no we don?t!! There is no phone number, or website address!! That isn?t very good!! * * * * * Conclusion Well, to sum everything up: I would say lovely, the taste is great, and there is nothing like a glass of milk after some chocolate, so I am off to get some (in a minute). But a downfall is the fact that there is no phone number on the packet, or website address. So that is one thing I am not happy about, but at least they taste good!! (YUM)!! And when you eat yours, watch out for the ones that come attached to other ones ? they?re even better!! It may not be Cadburys but it is good!! Well I hope I helped (that is what I?m meant to do, after all)!!

                                Introduction Well, we just happen to have a few left over from that special time of year ? Christmas!! Special because= all the chocolate, you get!! And a few left because= Well, quite simply, I ate most of them (giving no ? one else a chance to have any)!! We also have a wide selection of other chocolates as well, but I decided to review this because they are my absolute favourite!! I love these little angels ? especially the green noisette triangle (but of course they?re all gone :-<, how terrible)!! They are called ?Quality Street?, I understand the Quality part of the title, but what?s the ?Street? part of the title all about!! I mean of course its quality (gorgeous), but there are no streets in it!! * * * * * What it is For anyone who does not know what ?Quality Street? are a brilliant, sweet idea!! There are twelve different sweets in total. I don?t know how many there are in a whole tin!! I don?t count, I eat but don?t count!! And there are so many to chose from, although, there are coconut ones and ones with nuts in (as I said in my profile: I hate nuts)!! * * * * * Taste Well there are so many, that I just can?t be bothered to go through all the different tastes, but I will say what they are: Noisette Triangle (1) Milk Choc Hazelnut (12) Caramel Cup (4) Hazelnut in Caramel (11) Strawberry Dream (2) Toffee Finger (5) Orange Crème (3) Coconut Éclair (9) Malt Toffee (10) Orange Choc Crunch (6) Country Fudge (8) Toffee Penny (7) You may have noticed the numbers in brackets. I have done this because I am sho
                                wing you my favourite to the worst 1 being the best and 12 being the lowest. But all the sweets may contain nuts in them, so they are not for you if you are allergic to them. * * * * * Packet Well, the packet I have in front of me is actually a plastic cylinder shape. With the main colour being purple. On the front it just says: ?Nestle Quality Street? and there are pictures of the marvellous selection of choc. On the back, as usual, there are ingredients, nutritional information and contacts. There will be more on nutritional information and the contacts in a bit. Also on the packet says how much the packet weighs: 870g. The packet can also be recycled. * * * * * Nutritional Per 100g ENERGY 1975 kj/ 471Kcal PROTEIN 3.7g CARBOHYDRATES 65.7g of which sugars 56.5g FAT 21.5g of which sugars 11.0g Fibre 0.8g Sodium 0.1g This product needs to be stored in a cool, dry place, but don?t get them to warm, when you open them they will go all over your hand!! And not to cold, either because you will not be able to bite into them!! * * * * * Contacts First of all there is the address: Nestle Consumer Services PO Box No 203 York YO91 1XY England And the phone number ~ 00800 63785385 That is for both the U.K and ROI Or the website ~ www.nestle.co.uk * * * * * Conclusion Right, to sum every thing up, I would say most of these are lush!! I highly recommend these, but then there are the ones that can be horrible, so I think &
                                #73; will give this 4 stars for that. But despite that, I love them. And all of those for £5.98!! Great value for money and they are definitely top quality!! Well I hope I helped you decide on this product!!

                                  br>Introduction Well, we all know of the Cadbury?s flake that is in a wrapper, but this review is about the other one - Cadbury Flake 99!! We just happen to have this lying around in the fridge, just waiting to be dipped into some ice ? cream or sprinkled onto a cake. But seeing as we don?t having any ice ? cream or cake ?sigh? in the house, it is just, as I said, lying around!! We don?t normally have these and quite frankly I think everyone has forgotten about these lovely flakes!! Well, apart from me, that is (Mmm? I love chocolate!!). On the bottom of the packet, there is a recipe card; they put the flake in the most ridiculous places!! Like with apples, whipped and clotted cream, on top of a trifle!! ?UGH?!! * * * * * What it is Right, well I am sure that you have heard of Cadbury?s Flake but what about Cadbury?s Flake 99!! This type of flake is best for ice ? cream or decorating cakes (preferably chocolate cakes!!) It comes in a rectangular shaped packet and a recipe card (but more on that later)!! There are usually 16 flakes, Mmm? lots of choc!! * * * * * Taste The best part!! These are extremely tasty and they melt in your mouth!! (Well the one I just had did)!! They are chocolate so naturally they are great!! But then chocolate is not for everyone, so if you do not like choc then these are definitely not for you, they are 100% chocolate!! (Woohoo)!! But if you do, then boy are you in for a treat!! * * * * * Packet The basic colours are yellow and purple ? mostly yellow with purple sections and writing. There are pictures, nutritional information and a recipe card on the packet. On the top of the packet it says ?Cadbury?s Flake 99®? It also has a picture of two (scrummy) flakes stuffed into some vanilla ice ? cream (How lush!!) On the sides there are things like: advertisements for the flake and ther
                                  e are serving suggestions, nutritional information, the Best Before Date and extra information (weight, contacts and about Cadbury?s). On the bottom there is a recipe card (mentioned earlier in the review). These are meant to be cut out, but personally I never use them!! It shows a picture of what it is meant to look like when finished, has instructions and ingredients. Be warned these will be extremely fatty!! (Clotted and whipped cream, lots and lots of choc, custard and yoghurt)!! * * * * * Nutritional Found on side of packet. Per flake: ENERGY ~ 200 Kj/45Kcal Protein ~ 0.7g Carbohydrate ~ 4.9g Fat ~ 2.8g Because there is only a short list of ingredients, I will list them: Milk; Sugar; Cocoa butter; Cocoa Mass; Vegetable fat; Emulsifier (E442); Flavourings. Now that wasn?t very much was it? This product MUST BE stored in a cool, dry place!! But don?t get them to warm, they will melt on your cake!! Don?t get them too cold either, they?ll go hard and you won?t be able to bite into them, and how horrible would that be?! * * * * * Contacts If you want to write to them here is the address: Made by Cadbury Ireland for Cadbury ltd. P.O. Box 7011 Bourneville Birmingham B30 2PY U.K There does not appear to be a phone number on the packet, or a website address!! How terrible!! * * * * * Conclusion Right, well to sum it all up, this product is: Lovely!! I definitely, highly recommend these. So the next time you?re out shopping, stop to get some of these, trust me it will be worth it!! Personally, I prefer them on chocolate cake instead of ice ? cream, but they are both luscious!! And one final thing: This is NOT in the wrong place because it is Cadbury?s flake, and this is the section for Cadbury?s flake ? I don?t see an
                                  y difference, do you?! Well I hope I helped and enjoy them (if you buy them, that is)!! And as a plus they are only £1.15!! Brilliant value for 16 of them!! So I decided to give this 4 stars, because of the lack of information on the packet, but apart from that they are great!! I wish there were half stars aswell, then I would give it 4 and a half stars.
