Snowy puffs review


Honey monster make his move in o the Snow-business

The Honey monster is back with the release of his coolest cereal yet, Snowy Puffs, and there's better way to get into the spirit of the season than by curling up with a big bowl.

Adding a touch of brrrr-iliance to the original Sugar Puffs, Snowy Puffs comes with delicious meringue snowballs.
The limited edition cereal contains no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives as well as being a source of fibre for the whole family.

We was sent a box of Snowy Puffs to try, they are yummy just like the original sugar puffs but we wasn't to keen on the meringue balls they added a lovely winter affect to our cereal but they didn't add much flavour which would have been nice.
May be some white chocolate balls or white marshmallows would have been nice.
If you like meringue you will love these.

Snowy Puffs is available to buy from all good retailers at a (RRP price of 1.50)

Add a drizzle of Grenadine to the top, and let it seep through the drink for an eye-catching effect. The only other thing is to add a cherry on the top.... and enjoy.

Christmas with ALDI

    Aldi have some great treats for all the family this Christmas !




We was sent some lovely Christmas treats to try from the lovely people at Aldi, why not check out the website here for many more of there great offers.

Below are a few of the delicious treats we received.

Stollen Bites
These delicious Stollen bites are made with juicy raisins, almonds, citrus peel, hazelnuts with a delicious marzipan centre. Myself and my 8 year old son Callum absolutely loved these, the flavour remind me some much like cherry bake wells cakes our favourite. They were delicious, moist and packed with fruity flavour. The icing sugar that is sprinkled over the top of the Stollen bites adds extra flavour. We will definitely be buying these this Christmas, excellent treat with a class of wine or cup of tea if you prefer.
Stollen bites- £1.59 per 350g pack 

Specially Selected Orange Topped Christmas Pudding
 Aldi's specially selected orange topped Christmas pudding is made with, sultanas, whole cherries, crunchy almonds and pecans and laced with Spanish Sherry, Cognac and rum and topped with a ring of whole glace of orange slices. We served our Christmas pudding with some custard, it was so delicious and moist. There were lost of different flavours and textures. My favourite part was the yummy flavours of fruits and the glace of oranges added colour and mouth watering flavours.

Specially Selected Luxury Mince Pies


Aldi's specially selected mince pies are just gorgeous, a few years a go you would never of caught me tucking in to a mince pie I loved apples pies, but one day I thought I saw a delicious looking mince pie and thought ill have a little try and omg it was the best mince pie I had ever tasted, since that day if I ever get near a mince pie its all mine I'm not sharing. I'm not a massive fan of mince pies and love trying any one I can get my hands on, so when Aldi asked if I would like to try there Specially selected mince pies I jumped in for a chance. I must say they are so yummy I didn't want to share the pack but I had to. The all butter pastry was delicious lovely and crumbly not dry like some mince pies i have tried, is was also packed with luxury mince which I thought was gorgeous soaked in the finest French brandy. I must admit I tucked into the mince pies before even reading the box and didn't know they contained brandy, I cant wait to buy more of these for Christmas.
Specially Selected Luxury Mince Pies- Contain 6 mince pies for as little as £1.69


Amador Cava Brut


Aldi's Amador Cava Brut is delicious with fine and persistent bubbles with citrus and green apple aromas. It's elegant and balanced there is a purity of fruit and a refreshing acidity in this impressive Cava. Cava is made using the full traditional method (i.e. the same way as Champagne), and the wines must spend a minimum of nine months in bottle before disgorgement.
Amador Cava is great for parties and special occasions it's Ideal as an appetiser or to accompany fish and savoury pastries. Its complexity also allows it to be enjoyed with pasta or white meat dishes.
I'm not a big fan of Alcohol but i must admit i finished this whole bottle, over two nights and i will definitely be buying some to have over the Christmas and New year.
Originally from Spain and in Aldi supermarkets at a great price of £4.49.


Specially Selected Irish Cream


If you love baileys you will love Aldi's Specially selected Irish cream, to me it tasted just like the Original named brand the only difference is the price, you will save money buying Aldi's Bally Castle brand at the price of just £5.99. Try it for your self you wont know the difference.

Review : Bazooka Candy


We was so excited when we was sent some delicious candy treats 
to try from the lovely people at Bazooka candy, there delicious candy is not only tasty its fun keeping you children occupied a little longer (he he). Here is a some of the yummy treats we received.

Rattlez Candy 

This yummy candy comes in the shape of a Baby rattle that is fun for kids,  In side its filled with candy and has a lolly pop attached to the handle so when you open it you have a lick of your lolly and place it back in to the lid and shake it like you would a normal baby rattle, make sure you have put the lid on tightly you wouldn't want to lose all your tasty sweets.
 Once you have had a good shake open it up and your lolly will have been covered in all the tiny candy balls.
The great thing about this design is it has a lid so when you child has had enough, you can store it away a save some for later, so there's no more sticky mess. Callum and Michaela are forever leaving sweets lying around or throwing them in the bin as they have no where to put them when they've had enough. Rattlez candy is a fun sweet that your kids will love. You can also get  Red and blue Flavors include strawberry, raspberry and blue raspberry.


Ring pops

 
You will definitely feel like royalty with one these diamond shape blings, Ring pops come in a variety of different flavours, strawberry, blueberry, water melon and many more.
These brightly coloured edible rings are great for girls and boy who love wearing rings, These tasty treats are delicious and last for a while unless your children likes to bite them instead.
I think they could do with a cover that fits over the sweet part so you are able to still wear it even when you don't want to eat it, that way you wont get sticky and fluffy.

Snap it




My son Callum loved the new Snap it lollie pop he thought it was cool, Snap it is a lolly pop that is attached to a lolly stick inside a case that flips open, you then close it and start licking away when your done you can open the case and put your lolly back inside and snap it shut saving some for later.
There are two yummy flavours to choose from Blackcurrant and Strawberry.
Snap it is perfectly designed so it can be carried around in your pocket where ever you go with out leaving any sticky mess.


Bazooka baby bottles


Bazooka baby bottles come in a variety of different colours and flavours, they have a hard candy teat that can be dipped in to a sour powder by unscrewing the teat, inside the teat you will find a long plastic stick that you can hold while dipping your teat into the power giving your sweet some extra flavour. I think its great they have added a clear plastic lid as it adds detail to the bottle making it look realistic,it also keeps your sweet clean and letting you keep it longer.

We loved all the Bazooka Candy's we tried well worth every penny.

Review: Skylanders Spyro's Adventure



Bring your toys to life !


I couldn't believe it when the lovely people at Activision asked if we would like to test one of there amazing Skylander- Spyro Adventure game packs for the wii.
This is the first time i have saw this game as I'm normally buying PS3 game for my son and haven't really played the wii lately, since receiving the Spyro Skylander pack we've played nothing else since, its a really fun game and once you get started you just want to keep going and completing each level.
This great Spyro Skylander game pack comes with a Portal of Power which connects to the wii wireless which is great as you haven't got any trailing wires  and the portal can be placed some where little ones cant reach it, Davina aged 1 years tries to run away with our toy characters.
There are three toy characters included in the pack these were Trigger happy, gill grunt and spyro, the pack also includes a game, and batteries which is fantastic as you always find a lots of toys say batteries not included so we was relived when we saw there was batteries, this meant we could get stuck in straight away, no trip to the shops.
I must admit I'm not very good at setting gadgets up but it was really easy after a few simple steps it was ready to go, Just set your wii up like you normally would, insert the Spyro game in to the wii, turn on your Power Portal, once the game has loaded on your screen place the character of your choice on to the portal and as if by magic your character appears on you television screen. The Portal of power even flashes colours which is an excellent feature.
 The toy character save your game data eg, levels, points etc for the next time you play even if it’s on a different platform at your friends house so if for example you have an Xbox and your friend has a Wii you can still take the toys to your friends house and play, then once back home you can then finish the game from where you left of at your friends house.


This amazing game pack is also 2 player, you can place a minimum of 2 characters on to the Portal of power allowing you to play a classic battle mode which  provides a selection of different game modes and arena maps for players to face off against each other. Each unique arena map contains a variety of obstacles, hazards and power-ups. Players will want to make sure they build up their army of different characters and level them all up to battle their friends on equal ground.
I must state you will need to have two wii controls and two nun chucks to be able to play battle mode, we only have one nunchuck so we haven't had chance to try that yet.

There are a whole lot more characters to buy making it so much more fun as each character opens more contents of the game.
There are 32 characters to collect all together, we cant wait to see many more adventure games.

Spyro Adventure's is suitable for ages 7-13

We give it a whopping 5/5


For more information, be sure to visit the official Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure game website located at www.skylandersgame.com.
