Forest Feast Premium Fruit Doypacks Pineapple Rings 125 g (Pack of 4)
Forest Feast Premium Fruit Doypacks Pineapple Rings 125 g (Pack of 4)
Price: £9.26

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing., 26 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the third Forest Feast fruit that I have tried. I loved the Banana and the Berries and Cherries, but this pineapple has no flavour, a bit of a strange smell and is very dry. All 4 bags were the same. They all went in the bin. Perhaps I have a bad batch but I won't risk getting the pineapple again.

Lovely chair but the perils of buying online! It is so much bigger and heavier than expected - good and strong and very very comfortable but if you are in a situation where you have to take it outside each time you want it - living in a flat for example - I should go for something lighter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mmmm!, 8 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are delicious. Not quite as sweet as a lot of biscuits and all the better for it I think. Plenty of calories of course - 518 per 100grams, so strictly for those wanting to limit sugar - not for reducing. While there is no mention on the packet about being suitable for vegetarians I cannot see anything in the ingredients which would cause a problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great taste, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They taste like Starburst or Fruitella. I was hoping for a reasonable substitute for "normal" sweets and was delighted to find that they are. They taste very good - such a pity about the warnings to not eat many at a time (that's the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars)!


Return to the Secret Garden
Return to the Secret Garden
by Susan Moody
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh!, 27 Mar 2014
I don't know why Susan Moody wrote this book. She must have disliked "The Secret Garden" intensely; her book is like a revenge attack in which she has mangled the characters out of all recognition. If she wanted to write a book about depressing characters and salacious sex, why steal someone else's characters? I felt as if I needed a shower after reading it. If you loved Frances Hodgson Burnett's book, don't read this one. It's an insult to the original author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rajah Garam Masala - 400g (Misc.)
Difficult to find this make in the shops when you don't live in a city but also much better value than the small tins (and silly little jars of certain makes) in most supermarkets. Not a hot spice - use it for flavour - doesn't have to be curry-like meals; it is nice on chicken in a salad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely!, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took a chance as I don't think the description is very clear, though S. Anna's review helped, and fortunately they are what I was looking for. These are not banana chips, but chewy pieces of banana - like the whole bananas that you used to be able to buy but are very difficult to find now. Anyone expecting banana chips might also be put off by their appearance but they are very good! 7+ months till expiry date. Very good value as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far - very good, 14 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because of circulation problems in my legs and ankles, due to osteoarthritis. It has definitely helped keep the fluid off my ankles and it keeps my knees from stiffening up so much when I'm sitting. A couple of minutes on the pedals before get out of my chair and I can stand up and move more quickly. The calorie counter is a waste of time - it doesn't alter when you go faster or slower or put more effort in - it just seems to count revolutions. Pedalling without thinking about it gets easier with a bit of time and I now I do it when I'm on the telephone for a while or watching TV. Update September. I've now got another one because the other one broke, but I used it a lot, and liked it so decided to give another one a chance. The new one has much more resistance and the screw works. However the metal gets very hot on this one, as lots of other people have mentioned. The other one didn't. So looking at other reviews, and now having had 2, it seems to be the luck of the draw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of photographs!, 11 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Underground Heritage (Hardcover)
This is a picture book with captions and not a lot of text, but plenty of information nevertheless. Almost every page has at least one photograph and many have 3 or 4 - all colour. The grouping by subject rather than station works well because all the photographs are clearly labelled and there is a station index. I love the book - now can someone do one for the overground stations in London?

5.0 out of 5 stars Station architecture, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Main chapter headings are; 150 years Underground. page 4; History, page 10; Tube Journeys, page 66 (to give an idea of balance). Most of the many photographs are of stations or station furniture (signs, lighting etc.), as is a lot of the text so the book would be of interest particularly to those interested in station architecture. Lots of photographs, the majority in colour. Small book, just under 6ins square with 120 pages; packed. Excellent value at present price of £5.24 but also if it was at RRP of £6.99.
