Alpen Chocolate 625 g (Pack of 6)
Alpen Chocolate 625 g (Pack of 6)
Price: £16.74

4.0 out of 5 stars with added chocolaty bits, 2 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A tasty treat Alpen with added chocolaty bits, the ingredients are up to the usual standard you expect from the Alpen brand the chocolate bits are like curls of dark chocolate and add a pleasant chocolate flavour.
A winner in our house (two adults and two teenage kids) for our post Christmas comedown weaning slowly off the high fat foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Large and versatile, 28 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice product with easy to use application brushes, my wife is particularly pleased with the fact these do not clog or clump, as much down to the mascara as the brushes I am sure. Overall the package is slightly larger than some mascaras but does reflect the versatility of the product.

Overall a quality product, though a tad more expensive than would normally be paid but Amazon do offer this a good price.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Man friendly', 23 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What do you give the man who has lots of Power tools ?
A laser measure that's what, Fitting nicely into a small pocket this measure will measure very accurately from 15 CM to 15 meters.
The functionality is 'Man friendly' as well with a big thumb sized on off switch.
My only concern is that at the price this might exclude all but the dedicated amateur DIYer from purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars God rest you merry players, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Christmas (Audio CD)
A Folky Christmas album full of Good cheer and great arrangements very professionally played by the `Players'. A quick look at the names of the players suggests a good knowledge of music.
My find of this season, even though it was recorded in the eighties. Its winter and its Christmas music what's to go wrong?

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic Spice Rack, 9 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great basic Spice rack with a starter kit of herbs and spices:

Bay leaves (Flaked),
Coriander seed,
Fennel seed,
Marjoram,
Oregano.
Thyme,

All of which I use in the kitchen to a greater or lesser extent, the jars have three open settings and a closed setting and are flexible and refillable.
The rack is a resin rack which feels OK not maybe as expensive as it should given the price of the product.

If I am going to be picky then I would like to have had the jars minus the names of the herbs so that I could substitute ones I use more. This is a minor inconvenience and I am sure the names could be removed without too much damage I just cannot bring myself to do that right now.

If you are new to cooking or setting up a home for the first time this is probably a great start. For the more advanced cook maybe switch to one of the more expensive racks from Cole & Mason (Also available on Amazon).

One last comment the packing was excellent with rack packed in a purpose built box, which was overwrapped with another box, and shipped by amazon in a further box which was full of paper wadding, needless to say it arrived undamaged.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the budding Architecture student, 9 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For the budding student who is good at art and wants to be an architect come Archi-doodle, a book which covers many architect drawing styles and offers pages to `copy' or even `change and enhance' already drawn pictures.

A timely book my daughter is taking her options and wants to be an architect so what better way to encourage her with her plans for the future.

A winner for her but not possibly for everyone, though it can be used as an aid to the budding artist as well..

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks quite cheap but packs a punch., 5 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a basic manual staple gun,, my main issue it feels cheap the handle could be a bit more substantial and the safety catch is a bit tricky to set, and the loading mechanism for the staples relies on flexing bendy a plastic hinge.

On the plus side the gun packs a pretty punch banging the staples firmly in place. Its very intuitive to use and comes with enough staples for your first few jobs.

Overall a mixed package some very good aspects but the overall look and feel let it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was a Sceptic, 5 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Sceptic that I am I have never paid too much fro my dishwasher stuff, mainly because things get clean with the cheep options.
I happened to get some of these at a reasonable price and I have to say I am impressed. The package stores quite well. The dishwasher units (tablets does not do them justice) have three distinct areas, a solid ball which you can handle, and a gel package which contains a yellow liquid and some white powder balls.
Pop this in to the dishwasher, no unwrapping the unit, and stick the dishwasher on. Even on a low temp wash, these clean well, with a pleasant lemon smell emanating from the dishwasher.
Cleaning quality was good and smear free, so if you can get these for a good price do they work very well.
