Weetabix Chocolate Biscuits 12 (Pack of 5)

4.0 out of 5 stars A tasty treat, 8 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It’s Weetabix and its double Chocolate, that’s chocolate chip with chocolate covered flakes. While I don’t believe that this is exactly what Weetabix was originally designed as a cereal, it’s certainly a tasty treat at breakfast for the weekend,

3.0 out of 5 stars limit-less, 8 Mar 2014
This review is from: 1 - Life On The Limit [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A documentary which offers much but delivers little, the subject matter is engaging and the archive footage is great to see, some of which I had not seen before, however the story should be more interesting than it comes across the commentary is lacking and there is no depth or real flow.
Maybe the documentary needs to be longer focusing on the bigger stories of each age.
In the end this is OK but could have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Red being the fastest., 27 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Its a whisk its very functional so what makes this different, well turn it on you get a the light ring flashes Blue to show its good to go press the up arrow the beaters move slowly and the light is a solid colour, with four settings each one with a different colour
Solid blue is slow
Solid Purple a bit faster
Solid Green faster still
with Red being the fastest.

The beater itself does not seem to strain at all even with the thickest of mixtures we have tried so far.
Its not a bad weight and feels well built.
My only issue so far is with the beaters out if you stand it flat it rolls as its very round. It does however stand well on its end, so only a minor quibble and probably a good idea with the beaters in.

Good value product would recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars it does a sheet of a job, 26 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a fantastic value basic sheet. Very large and while described as sky Blue ours was more ‘teal’ in colour which fitted the colour scheme much better.
The sheet feels nice maybe a bit smooth, but perfect for the bed. Its large so does not move around when tucked under the mattress (it does not have fitted corners).
Not much more to add it does a sheet of a job and does what is required i.e. lays flat and feels nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A non definitive but lovingly crafted box, 10 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A non definitive but lovingly crafted box set featuring one of the best and underrated blues guitarists of the 20th Century.
The set was compiled by Al Kooper, but as some reviewers have noted is minus some key tracks from key bands KGB for instance. Each of the discs is not much more than 1 hour so there is approximately 45 minutes more music that could have been added easily. That said this is most likely down to getting the rights for the music. The box also does have an element of leave them wanting more, never a bad thing as there is nothing worse that a box which is bloated and has a 4th disc of music no one wants to hear.
For the casual Bloomfield collector there are a number of rare and previously unreleased tracks, while the set also serves as an appetiser for deeper diving the Bloomfield catalogue. The sound quality is top notch. My only real complaint is that the booklet is not anchored to the package and slides out very easily. That minor quibble aside great set. Recommended to anyone who like Blues music and would listen to Paul Jones show on radio 2 Monday nights.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product a little pricey, 10 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My wife is a big fan of epilators and over the years she has had a few with varying degrees of success regarding hair removal and performance.
What we have discovered over the years is you get what you pay for, as epilators go this appears to be the cream of the crop as far a Braun epilators go. It performs as well if not better than the cheaper models in the range but the icing on the cake for this one is the ex-foliating brush attachment, which my wife is very pleased with removing as advertised those lighter more wispy hairs that the standard head can not reach.
Other highlights from a design perspective is the light which highlights the action area. This one is also a little quieter that previous Braun epilators she has had as well. While I have said you get what you pay for, this is still quite and expensive product, not for all pockets.

Great product a little pricey but up to standards previously set by Braun

5.0 out of 5 stars Pastime paradise, 8 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This High Fidelity Pure Audio disc has to be the best version of this album I have heard glorious 96/24 sound captures all of the nuances of the album so well.
The music is so well known that I cant really write about it the hits 'Sir Duke' and 'Isn't she Lovely' are stand outs as is the 'Pastime paradise' which younger viewers might recognise as something else.

While the sound quality is excellent, disc presentation is kind of strange with a horrible menu and no track details, just a track number to pick from.
The disc auto starts on the LPCM track which is great, but why also include DTS MA and Dolby True HD when they are all effectively the same, though on some players Dolby THD suffers from a horrible Dai-norm issue, because it was predominately designed as a film encoding and not for music.
For me a 5.1 mix would have been the icing on the cake again a wasted opportunity.
Despite the above I have to give this 5 stars this is a great release and after all it is the sound that counts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner, 8 Feb 2014
This review is from: On The Island (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very well written story which caught my wife attention right from the get go.
She enjoyed the story being told by both the main characters. Having both perspectives brought a whole new depth to their experiences and made for a more intense read.
Definitely a good book for the beach or holiday, as once you start to read this story you don’t want to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Duty, 29 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Robust push up bars these bars swivel with a smooth rotation they are not so loose that they spin round like a top but not too tight to twist offering a reasonable amount of resistance.
They feel quality if I am going to be picky the handle cover could be a bit softer, but these will stand multiple and long term use, so that is the compromise to be had.
Very pleased with the bars hope I will be pleased with the results in 6 months time !!
