Offered by Grocery UK LTD
Price: £8.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Nephews Like Them And So Do I, 3 Mar. 2015
We buy these for our nephews for when they come around and raid our cupboards for food.

I tasted a pack for myself recently (for reviewing purposes of course) and found them to be tasty - plenty of crunch and just about the right amount of pickle onion flavour strength.


Rubility® Cannice Y3 Running Sport Wireless Bluetooth Earphone In-ear Earplugs Headphone Stereo Audio Double Track Headset for Smartphones White
Rubility® Cannice Y3 Running Sport Wireless Bluetooth Earphone In-ear Earplugs Headphone Stereo Audio Double Track Headset for Smartphones White

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive Headphones / Earphones, 2 Mar. 2015
(This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Distributor for an honest and unbiased review).

Inspired by the floating feather from the 1994 movie blockbuster Forrest Gump these Rubility® Cannice Y3 Headphone / Headsets feature 4.1 stereo bluetooth capability and have quality, design and performance that will appeal to most users. They are compatible with a wide range of small, medium and large sized devices.

Inside the box you get the main Rubility® Cannice Y3 Headphone / Headsets, X6 Ear Caps, X1 USB charger and an user manual. They are very impressively presented inside a 'High End' looking futuristic plastic box with good artwork. There are 2 compartments inside the box: the top holding the Headphones / Earphones and the bottom sliding out compartment housing the accessories and user manual.

There is no doubt that the Headphones / Earphones are made of very high quality material and their weight is virtually weightless. The design is very modern, stylish and pure and the white, grey and gold colours complement each other very well. All the audio options are located on one main control panel and the 3 buttons cover a wide range of controllable options. The LED status display and charging port for these are delicately located behind the right ear piece for simplicity and these permit waterproof / sweatproof properties.

Pairing with my iPhone was very quick, straightforward and problem free. To initiate this I held down the middle multi function button until the LED turns to flashing red / blue (approx 5 seconds), and activated the bluetooth on my iPhone. A few seconds latter my iPhone recognised it as 'Y3' and pairing was complete - easy!.

After using these on and off for 3 days I came to the conclusion that they had very good sound quality and there was one critical step that I would recommend following before you start - finding the most suitably sized ear exchangeable buds / caps and ear accessory. There are 6 to choose from and there will be one that fits much better than the others - I took 10 mins to find the correct size.

The sound quality produced was clear, crisp, smooth with a suitable amount of bass at a wide range of volumes. There was no crackling, hissing or amplification with the music or via voice calling. The bluetooth connection was very stable and solid and the range was more than enough at 10m.

What this product does that most other rival products can't do as well is noise cancellation. This is mainly down to the ear tightness design and how it attaches to your ear. You can push these in further into your ear and it literally cuts out 100% of external noise. At less than 1/4 volume I could not hear my TV at normal TV sound levels and when my partner sitting next to me got up it was only 5 mins latter when I removed them from my ear did I realise that the phone had rang and it was only arms length away from me - very impressive.

All the control options were very responsive and reliable and worked very well indeed. Charging took about 2 hours and a playtime of over 7 hours was achieved. It will of course be largely volume dependant and if you pick the correct ear tip / cap size your volume will only need to be low and therefore will extend battery levels.

Verdict: Very Impressive Headphones / Earphones.


9 Bar Peanut Seed Bar (16 x 50G)

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 1 Mar. 2015
I decided to buy these because I wanted to snack on something in work that was healthy and reasonably cheap.

I often found myself having to skip my breaks or having to keep them to an absolute minimum and always ended up eating chocolates or crisps (usually both!).

Given that it contained mostly 'Natural' and 'Healthy' ingredients and that it was lacking so many ingredients that are usually found in cereal bars & chocolates, I expected it to taste very bland.

However I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it tasted delicious (8/10 for taste). The nuts and seeds combined very well together to create an 'Unique', satisfying taste.

Although, admittedly it did not taste as nice as chocolate, it did actually taste nicer than cereal bars.

Despite it being made mainly of loose nuts and seeds, it did not fall apart all over my lap as I expected.

Verdict: Highly Recommended.

(This product was sent to me by the manufacturer / distributor for an honest and unbiased review).

If you are looking for headphones / earphones that are lightweight, comfortable, high quality, well designed, good performing and affordable then this product is likely to make it high up on your shortlist.

Inside the box you get the main Aukey EP-C1A Headphone / Earphone, 3 inter-changeable earbuds / eartips and a well written Aukey user manual with an inner 18 month warranty page inside.

They come well presented in a thin box and there is a custom made padding inside which custom fits each piece. These are a very nice touch and something that you rarely get with earphones.

All aspects of the product are certainly modern and stylish and the black and silver colours go very well with each other. At only 59 g / 0.42 oz they are with the lightest that I have come across and despite their low weight they are still made of high quality material that's built for the long term.

I used these on a 4 hour bus trip playing music directly from my iPhone. The 3.5mm audio connection was very good and after I tried all 3 ear different sized ear tips (small, medium and large) I found the most suitable size and it stayed in throughout the journey providing very good comfort with no issues (it's very important to get the right fit before you begin and its worth being patient).

The remote control on these allow you to control quite a few things and these include the call answering, call ending, incoming call rejecting, pause / resume, next track, volume + / volume -. By the end of the bus journey I found that the controls were easy to use and were very responsive indeed.

From a sound quality point of view I found that they were very good with no sound disturbances. The sound was very clear, smooth, rich with the right amount of bass. I also connected them to my iPad when I returned home and the result that I had was the same.

If anyone is wondering what they are like compared to your standard Apple earphones rest assured they are nowhere near as good as these and if you like to listen to music, take calls or play games through your earphones then they are certainly worth buying.

Verdict: Very Good Value For Money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A++++++, 27 Feb. 2015
This 'Doh!nuts' Doughnut Pan - Premium 6 Cup Donut & Bagel Maker was sent to me for review.

We have bought quite a few different cooking and baking trays over the years that have varied considerably in quality from good to bad and this product in particular is good.

Weighing in at under 136 g it would be classed as quite lightweight and with dimensions of 26.7 x 19 x 2.5 cm it would be classed as small. Each separate metal mould is appropriately sized at
3"/ 8 cm in diameter and there are 6 moulds in total.

Although these are geared towards cooking / baking donuts the moulds can also be used for bagels and different types of cakes.

There is a cinnamon baked donut recipe with associated directions included to get you started (this information is actually well hidden within the cardboard packaging so you have to cut it in half to view it).

Whatever you decide to make you still have to line it with butter or oil of some sort in order to prevent sticking of the ingredients onto the metal moulds.

Verdict: A++++++

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets the job done fast, 27 Feb. 2015
This Debonhair detangling hair brush was sent to me for review.

This is certainly a well made Detangling hair Brush that's lightweight and ergonomic.

It comes in what initially looks like a hair colourant box with no instructions inside as you are meant to use it in the same way as you would a standard hair brush.

The key differences between this and a standard brush is that the Debonhair is much lighter with a much smaller handle and the bristles are much softer, shorter and have a mixture of medium and large sized bristles.

After using the product for 2 days I found that it was easy to use, moved smoothly through hair and got rid of knots and tangles much quicker with less effort. It was used mainly on thick hair first thing in the morning, after swimming and when high winds were present.

The longer and thicker your hair the more problems you are likely to get with knotting and tangling but with this brush you don't have to put your hair up into a pony tail when you are in a rush as this gets the job done very well indeed.

Verdict: Gets the job done fast.


Pregnancy For Men: The whole nine months
Pregnancy For Men: The whole nine months
by Mark Woods
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, 27 Feb. 2015
(This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier for an honest and unbiased review).

Pregnancy can be like getting married somewhat as we often find that most of the attention is directed towards the woman and when the mother in law gets deeply involved men can sometimes feel that they are being squeezed out of the equation. Not only can this be extremely stressful for the man but it can make him get more distanced from his partner which sadly can be misinterpreted as not caring, especially when mood swings caused by fluctuating hormones are around.

The book is 275 pages long and contains the equivalent of 9 chapters which in this book each relate to each month of pregnancy. Before and after these chapters we find the introduction, the 9.5th month of pregnancy (being overdue) and an epilogue (holding the baby) with a reminder at the end that although it's a roller coater ride it should still be thoroughly enjoyable. Immediately before the index at the back there is a particularly useful glossary section which walks you through the A-Z terminology of the whole process and more.

There are a significant amount of different topics covered and these range from scans, symptoms, premature births, diet, morning sickness, women's hormones, mens hormones and hospital visits to name but a few.

The book is very well written and presents all the information very nicely in small chunks which makes everything much easier to read and remember and this makes it far more enjoyable. Rather than making the whole process sound like a daunting 9 month task it injects humour into the book at certain stages and this is more likely to make you more relaxed and give you the impetus to want to continue reading. However when serious and upsetting topics such as miscarriage are discussed the humour quickly disappears with a great deal of sensitivity shown.

To make things even more interesting we find sections called 'Words from your fellow man' - documented experiences of a wide range of men from different backgrounds on different topics. Reading these testimonials is more likely to make you feel that you are not alone and is an useful addition to the book. The 'must does of the month' feature also brings together a wide range of critical tips and this makes them stand out very well from less important information.

In summary I found that the book contained a significant amount of varied and relevant topics and the delivery was first class. The combination of good writing and clever layout structure made the book interesting, enjoyable and very much educational. The book did a grand job at providing men with the tools to be able to cope with the A-Z roller coater ride of pregnancy.


The Friendly Swede Swim Goggles (2 Pack), Black and Clear
The Friendly Swede Swim Goggles (2 Pack), Black and Clear
Offered by The Friendly Swede [UK]
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Verdict = Bargain, 26 Feb. 2015
(This product was sent to me by the manufacturer / distributor for an honest and unbiased review).

I've owned quite a few different pairs of swimming goggles in the past and the way that I decide which ones are the most appropriate is by balancing quality, design and price. This product in particular is made of good quality material with an excellent design and are very much good value for money, especially when you consider that you get 2.

Inside the box you get The Friendly Swede Swim Googles (X1 Black and X1 Clear), L, M and S interchangeable nose bridges / pieces, X2 clear cases. Also included are full clear instructions and these cover everything you need to know about the product including fitting and fog preventing instructions along with several different extra tips.

The goggles are made of good quality material that's fit for purpose (for the price point). The harder and solid plastic material covers the eye area whilst the softer and extremely flexible silicone is found on the outer eye areas and head strap. They are very light weight in terms of mass.

The design is modern and slightly futuristic and although they seem simple at first a closer inspection reveals that they are a million miles away from simple. The lenses and eye area offers anti fog protection, watertight sealing, scratch resistance and non mirrored. The wide lens design allows for wider angled visibility, the nose pieces can be changed for added comfort and the straps are dual and easily adjustable.

When I took the goggles down to the local swimming pool and conducted a full evaluation I found that they fitted very well indeed and were easy to adjust. I placed the dual straps over my swimming cap and they stayed firmly in place whilst the nose piece in the middle was far enough away from my nose. After I immersed them in water for a few seconds I swam 15 full lengths and found that visibility was very wide and clear with no fogging / steaming evident. I did 15 lengths with the 2nd pair and had the same results. The manufacturer recommends that they should be treated with anti fog solution in order to increase lifespan although more traditional methods are likely to be effective, albeit less effective than anti fog solution.

Verdict: Bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Quality Case With An Effective Design, 26 Feb. 2015
(This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Distributor for an honest and unbiased assessment).

This product pack is an iPhone 6 (4.7 inch) wallet case, stylus pen and microfibre cloth that has been designed to offer full protection to your device and prevent the occurrence of finger printing marks. It can also be used as a stand for your device.

The case is made of very good quality PU leather and looks equally as good as a genuine leather case. It's very light and the semi attached phone holder is made of black rubbery plastic and is with the best that I have seen in terms of quality. The presence of a stylus pen is very rare and welcoming and is ideal for preventing finger prints along with allowing you to continue using your device whilst you are eating. The stylus pen is smart and made of lightweight material and along with the microfibre cleaning cloth are useful additions to the pack.

The design is simple yet effective and has 3 'slit' compartments on the left for holding credit cards, cash and other small documents. There is a magnetic clip on the side of the product and this allows you to fasten both sides together and protect your device even further. There is also a hole on the back of the cover and this allows you to access your devices camera.

On the right side you get the custom made shell for this device and this is where your device slots into. There is / are hole(s) and groves carved out on the top, bottom, back and sides to match your devices ports, switch buttons, camera, audio port, charging area etc and this allows you to continue using your device whilst it's kept inside the cover. If you position your device / case horizontally and slide it forwards the rear cover splits in the middle and this feature allows you to view / operate your device in a landscape position - perfect for watching videos!.

Verdict: Very Good Quality Case With An Effective Design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Value For Money, 26 Feb. 2015
(This product was sent to me by the manufacturer / distributor for an honest and unbiased review).

If you are looking for a basic, good quality and colourful set of iPhone 6 (4.7inch) covers that offers very good value for money then these are highly likely to make it to your shortlist.

There are 10 individually wrapped soft silicone rubber cases in each full pack and these come in a wide range of different colours with most being colourfully vibrant. I had the red, hot pink, pink, purple, blue, black, white, orange, yellow, green along with a microfibre screen cleaning cloth.

There are no screen protectors present (as expected) but you can pick these up for next to nothing.

The cases are better quality than I expected (given the price tag) and the design is basic, flexible, appropriately sized and cut (allows access to buttons, audio port, camera, charging port etc).

There are a really nice selection of colours included and if you get bored of 1 colour you can quickly swap it for another and the 10 should last you quite a long time.

Verdict: Very Good Value For Money.
