1.0 out of 5 stars These are junk, chuck em or better don't order, 2 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Junk.. just chuck em. Like a poor Xmas cracker toy, like the worst recess stock of a failing market stall holder. No wonder kids are fat if this is supposed to hold their interest..

3.0 out of 5 stars Tastes as good as it looks, 31 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its green tea extract - it does the job but as every other review on here says it's taste overpowers everything and anything you mix it with. Not sure it's a coincidence but I have been off the bog longer than a few hours at a time, but it's a good price.

2.0 out of 5 stars A party I would avoid, 27 Aug. 2013
I, like many others have read Mike Gayle's books since his early days of publishing and likewise I am not alone in feeling strangely ambivalent about continuing to do so. However I do because there is something about Gayle's narratives that for the most part I seem to tolerate and enjoy without totally feeling that I really should be doing something better than reading about people I wouldn't generally want to mix with.

The characters in this book are even more irritating than Gayle's usual creations and a gloomy blandness permeates the whole narrative which is unusual for a Gayle book. Typically for one of his reads, you reach a tipping point where the plot loses a bit of focus or the protaganists hit a minor crisis/dilemma and the reader must push on to the conclusion in the hope of the protagonist having some insight or a positive climax. In this case I cared little for most of the characters plights and there was little redeeming quality in any of them. Equally non were so malevolent or complex as to cluster my emotional responses further than annoyance or indifference. When a key character dies there was little resonance within his social pond and thus none with the reader. Maybe it was my frame of mind when reading but if this is Gayle's foray into darker more complex characterisations it didn't work for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - RIP Manny, 4 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this t-shirt before the sad demise of Manny Steward so I wear it with some pride now despite never having set foot in a Kronk gym let alone been to Detroit. However the product is very well constructed, good quality cotton and the transfer and colouring have withstood multiple workouts and washing. Kronk tough stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Potent and great value, 4 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price and with prompt dispatch from the seller this oil is very good value. The oil itself is well infused and doesn't taste synthetic although can be overpowering so use sparingly. I am continuing to experiment with what it can enhance and what it can clash with, so far as expected it transforms a pasta dish no end and makes breads and oils a delight.

4.0 out of 5 stars They are the business, 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have waited a few months to post a review to really test these out - I was drawn to them both for having been an Asics stalwart over the years and because of a good reivew in Outdoor Fitness. I do regular trail runs and outdoor cross training so wanted some gear that would take some beating in every sense. These are without doubt the most supportive and comfortable trainer I've worn. I have a tendency to overpronate and these are supportive and absorb shock very well, the rock plate is a bonus. They have plenty of grip as you'd expect. I have worn them for road running too and they hold up particularly well, although I'm only talking 15k or so at a time. My only gripe is that the toe box has split recently after only 4 months of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars what a warm bargain, 1 Feb. 2012
For £6 this is an absolute steal (with an oversize mug included which makes up for the p & p costs) - not a compression top but definitely thermal and comfortable.


FANGO CHROME KITCHEN SINK PULL OUT MIXER TAP
FANGO CHROME KITCHEN SINK PULL OUT MIXER TAP

5.0 out of 5 stars Fangotastic, 14 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like one of the other reviewers said, this tap is one of the best things I've ever bought... off amazon. I'd been after one of these pull out taps for ages and was put off by the price tag from most DIY stores. This is half the price of most stores and as such excellent value. Fitting was a relative doddle despite my cackhandedness and the lack of instructions but there are plenty of instructionals vids on youtube. It was fitted and running within an hour. No fiddly nuts to secure it and as another reviewer said, the black thing is for weighting the hose, all straightforward and very good looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snug, warm, good as any other and great price, 18 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As I've said in the title it does what it should. I picked this top up for just short of 20 quid - good insulation and wicking, hard wearing so far and certainly compresses effectively. So far it has done the trick on a beach run on a cold november morning and has withstood the rigours of BMF bashing -washes out well and hods its quality. Excellent quality for the price
