Quaker Instant Grits Cheese Lovers' Flavor 12 Servings by Quaker

5.0 out of 5 stars Next to eggs, bacon and black pudding, there is no greater article of food that belongs on the morning plate..., 23 Dec. 2016

...yes that means this beats baked beans. Controversial I know, but this is grits, what's not to love... GRITS!!! Apart from the fact quaker doesn't stock this in UK supermarkets?

And if you are looking at this review thinking "but wtf is grits you compete tool?!" don't worry plenty of people are ignorant to this little wonder and I could explain, but the best way is for you to just not waste your time, click on the buy button, and thank me later.

Oh and forget microwaving them or boiling in a separate pan, after frying your bacon, take the bacon out of the pan throw the grits on the same pan to soak up the flavour, cover with a bit of boiling water and heat for a few minutes until done.

Forget beans.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE STRAP WORKS FINE!!! Read on..., 23 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK I didn't keep mine purely because it does not sync with my device, I wish it did, I would've loved to have kept it, but I have used one before and when I was able to it was perfectly fine for what it was. As a beginner who is into gadgets and doesn't have much space available when travelling to take a guitar and amp, this and a suitable tablet is a great alternative and the apps are very well designed and engaging.

One thing which was annoying to see here and in other sites are the criticisms of the strap and buttons, many sites criticise this and I have yet to see the company respond to the issue. If a mid sized device like this was not held securely by the strap (as you clearly cannot do so with your hands which are needed to play) it would be a huge issue and hamper the use.

The strap and buttons work fine however. To anyone that has an issue with them slipping out, once you've slid the buttons into place FORCE THEM FURTHER until you feel them snap into place, you really do need to force it, it does indeed work, no need for cling, film tape or glue lol. Hope this helps.

Title says it all, I wish more writers would learn from this depth of story telling and suspense. The series gets better and better, in this volume tying up many set up arcs from earlier on, with some well placed flashbacks done in an inventive method which doesn't feel forced at all. There is no doubt this is building to what promises to be a phenomenal climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is why the da Vinci code was so well received..., 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I heard it said that after this book Dan Brown was approached by Hollywood to write a more fast paced action packed story that would be more suitable to translate to a script, that turned out to be the da Vinci code. The funny thing is after reading all of Brown's offerings about two or three times I still think Angels and Demons is far more exciting, intense and packed with suspense, mystery and drama than its sequel, not to say it's sequel is not good however. It is a shame in my opinion then, that after the success of the da Vinci Code's outing in the cinemas, Hollywood just decided to cash in by making a poor adaptation of this to film, butchering the book completely.

I believe many people were introduced to the character of Langdon via the success of the da Vinci Code and may not have read this book, and the poor film adaptation which focused more on the religious aspects rather than the scientific may have put many off...however if they gave it a chance they would find a truly fantastic thriller here with plenty of original mystery thrown in for good measure. The story begins with a gruesome murder in the modern home of the scientific world, then the revelation that a new breed of super weapon has been stolen and will be used to lay waste to the Vatican during the election process for the next pope... the further threat, that on every hour one of the candidates in line will be publicly executed in an horrifically twisted manner almost born from the mind of the Saw creators. Brown slowly increases the intrigue by introducing an ancient enemy, the Illuminati into the mix by way of a failed assassin acting on command from an invisible entity believed to be a high level Illuminatus and also a Vatican insider...this is a true page turner full of Brown's usual wealth of knowledge of art history, symbology, and clandestine groups, and is a fantastic start to the Langdon series.

4.0 out of 5 stars great value for money, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag is just the right size to carry all your kit for a full on training or sparring session and a fresh change of clothes afterwards. It is even more than adequate for a short holiday and is the right size to be allowed as carry on hand luggage, as it can easily accommodate a few changes of clothes, shoes, and has a variety of pockets, some discrete and some easily accessible and some vented which helps after a workout for damp things such as swim gear, hand wraps or heart rate monitor straps which you may not want to keep in a closed bag right away. It even has a flat pocket on the bottom which is convenient for books, folders or even a laptop if traveling abroad so long as you don't forget and drop it down.all in all a great all around gym bag, only one star knocked off due to the plastic clips for attaching the straps to the bag.this is a large bag that could be used to carry a lot and whilst they have worked well so far, it would be better to see a more sturdy method of fastening here such as metal clips/carbiners.

4.0 out of 5 stars not quite as advertised, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all these plushies are amazing, I bought them as a gift for my girlfriend and she seemed to really like them, they are great quality, really soft, and just look right. The description however states that whilst not in original boxing these come with a lovely carry bag which is not true as mine did not. There was a very long delay with these arriving apparently due to high demand but the seller was very helpful and communicated this to me before I even had a chance to ask and included a small free gift to make up for it which was kind.

The saga continues, building on the madness and pace of the first three volumes and delivering more surprises on the way. Good and evil seem to go all out in this volume with tensions mounting and suspicion closing in around Dodge, be prepared for a cliff hanger that will have you buying volume 5 faster than you can blink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps getting better..., 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The second volume of this series definitely picks up the pace here, with characters and storylines already established well in the first, this volume can get right into the swing of things straight off the bat...however, don't let that fool you into thinking Locke and Key doesn't have any more mysteries to trade you with, or the ability to have you feeling delightfully out of the loop at times only to surprise you with little curveballs every now and then...the only criticism I can make here is that sadly it doesn't seem to be as long as the first volume but the quality and content is there in spades, getting volume three right away.

Locke & Key Vol. 1: Welcome To Lovecraft (Locke & Key Volume)
Locke & Key Vol. 1: Welcome To Lovecraft (Locke & Key Volume)
Price: £7.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to make what seems like a worthwhile long term investment..., 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a graphic novel with many nods and homages to many great horror, mystery and sci fi endeavours. What I love about it is that it has faith in its audience, with a first volume comprising of several well developed chapters setting up various plotlines, characters, and already throwing up and delivering a few nice twists and fascinating questions, you know that this is going to be a series where you can expect to be in on a long haul for some of the more deep rooted mysteries, but at the same time it will be an enjoyable ride.

The elements and nature of mysteries in this tale are perhaps most inspired by the miniseries "The Lost Room" focusing in the first volume on mystical keys/items that appear to have supernatural effects and/or, open doors to realms beyond or different to our own... The recent series "Lost" also appears to be somewhat influential by way of the nemesis we encounter in the climax of the first volume due to echoes, the way in which it is contained, and the unusual power and influence it appears to have, as are certain Japanese horror movies for its location and appearance.

The title is obviously going to draw Lovecraft fans in and they will not be disappointed as the township, Keyhouse, and many elements of mystery and dread permeating the tale such as madness, death, magic, hints at demonic forces, etc all echo themes from his short stories and novellas.

This is easily one of the best graphic novels I have read in a long time and pacing and artwork wise I would rate it up there with Civil War, Fear Itself, and Nemesis; as for the story it is rare to find something this deeply developed in a graphic novel. If you are a fan of the old series "American Gothic" or more recently "American Horror Story", and as I previously mentioned "Lost" and "The Lost Room" you should be very pleased with this to say the least.

Highly original, creepy, atmospheric with a wonderfully eerie, Lovecraftian feel to it, and all the while providing genuinely enjoyable puzzles. Can't wait for the sequel!
