4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia For The Forgotten, 17 Nov. 2016
This review is from: Buygones (Paperback)
Bygones may be a more apt title. This is an amusing collection of items that has provided entertainment, argument and memory-stretching amongst my friends and relatives, preferably after a few drinks. They are a reminder of things well gone and mostly enjoyed at the time. The abdominal slim wheel and Kilner jars are still in fashion . The compilation is a selection of things from the past that are tolerated when mentioned to my techno-offspring. I do confess to happy reminiscences of escalado, Dicky Valentine and Astra fireworks .Light-reading for the right occasion when found amongst the dust-heap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product Despite Scoops of Protein Incorrect Values., 17 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nutrisport whey protein is great value for money compared to other similar products.It is a high quality isolate powder. The directions state 'add 2 scoops (40gm) to I pint of water', equating to 34 gm of protein. The reality is that one heaped scoop is 40 gm, not two, (measured by me), preventing doubling the dose of protein and saving money. 40 gm provides 34gm of protein and 161 calories. The carbohydrate and fat are both 2.4gm per serving. It mixes easily in water in a shaker, even with 250ml. The bucket has the advantage of having an air tight lid that prevents clumping of the powder. I can recommend the chocolate flavour as well. The 5kg product has enabled a protein intake that I would struggle with food, personally, with no bloating. I am in my late sixties, still active and pushing my goals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not A Winner, 28 Oct. 2016
Carb. free, fat free, gluten free, soya and wheat free, low calorie. Alas, bulk free. Suitable for weight reduction programmes. These are correct. Unfortunately the taste is of slippery non-textured fishy unless washed and smothered in a sauce (watch calories). It takes a strong will and determination to devour them. Taken aside, they are not at all filling without additives and may have the opposite effect of increasing hunger. Nice try and no doubt a grand seller, but not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Versatile Lighting., 20 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is exactly what I wanted. The lighting is diffuse yet directed at the object and has a wide angle. Although it is used by me mainly for indoors or twilight outdoors, it lightens in many situations to a natural state. I cannot recommend it more highly. Easily assembled and utilised.

Given to me as a birthday present and gratefully received with the love it was given. It was used wisely, no doubt with Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grand Value Biltong, 19 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Biltong is becoming popular. Now, not only the taste of the devoted, we now find it in supermarkets and increased sites on line promoted as a high protein health snack. I agree, but as a pricey product and sources are important. The Biltong Man delivers 1kg in 500gm vacuum packed parcels. If you work it out it is less cost than commercial supplies. Obviously, quantity comes into the equation as well as quality. The Biltong Man 1Kg comes in two 500 gm. vacuum packed parcels.
The Nutrition is as follows per 100gm:
Energy 279kcal.
Fat 6.2gm.
Saturates 2.08gm.
Carbohydrates 2.6gm.
Sugars 1.5gm.
Fibre 1.5gm.
Protein 53.9gm.
Salt1.82gm

Having tried many Biltong products, this is consistently enjoyed and more some. Dry and chewy with a peppery taste, it all comes down to value for money and personal preference. If kept refrigerated it will, hands off, last 10 days. Frozen tightly in brown paper it still retains its flavour for 3 weeks. (Can't leave it longer). Biltong is appearing in supermarkets as a high protein health food. I agree, but check prices and don't confuse with beef jerky (higher sugar content).

5.0 out of 5 stars Lit My Fire, 16 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally, the Fire TV Stick has been purchased against family odds. Despite the plethora of programmes available on cable/satellite, this has given other channels that are otherwise unavailable. I am not technologically with it but it was easily installed. Watching You Tube and other apps with headphones has pleased myself and wife. Only just had it and look forward to more. Well worth value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Biltong Please, 16 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are a huge number of beef products on the market whether biltong or jerky. The high protein fitness move has hit the supermarkets. This Biltong comes from a reliable source that markets consistency. This is Biltong, not jerky with a higher carbohydrate content - post workout, maybe. The sliced texture is chewy but not biting. The flavour has a peppery edge without the sneeze. It is definitely a dip into and finish food. I wouldn't say it is a snack unless you have self-control. It can be kept, as per instructions, in the fridge for 7 days, (no chance).
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy Mummy, 5 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peppa Pig: My Mummy (Board book)
I bought this for my 3 year old granddaughter's birthday with her mother in mind. Little did I know I would be doing granddad duties for most of the day, repeatedly reading the story. Fortunately, the book and listener are delightful. It does not take much more than the blink of an eye before they are, maybe, reading to you! Excellent, sturdy, picturesque and totally captivating!

5.0 out of 5 stars More Quality Biltong, 5 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These whole sticks are versatile. Having tasted and shared many Biltong products, there are varied favourites, opinions and even batches of a product that may change. These, to me, have the right texture and flavour, slightly peppery, arriving vacuum packed with instructions on how to keep. A chewy, dry exterior with a slight moistness in the middle, the grainy quality allows for pulling strips off, teeth permitting. It can also easily be cut into bite size chunks. The other point to consider is that this has no discernible fat or gristle in any of my purchases and are also best kept hidden from prying hands.
Nutritional value per 100gm serving:
Calories 235
Fat 1.7gm of which saturates 0.8gm
Carbohydrates 2.6gm of which sugars 1.8gm
Fibre 1.9gm
Protein 52.2gm
Salt 4.4 gm.
The manufacturers state that no artificial preservatives, colouring or flavouring are used in their products
Update: December 2016.
The 500gm order comes in two x 250 gm vacuum wrapped packages each containing two 100gm strips plus a 50gm portion. Makes it easier to lay hands off the 500gm at once. Quality remains excellent and consistent.
