Review: FruitBroo Hot Drinks

Ever get fed up of drinking tea? No, me neither, but it’s always good to have an alternative! There is always one of a huge number of herbal or fruit teas to choose from, of course, but as you well know I am really not a big fan of those as they never taste like

Review: SIGG Classic Bottle and Alu Box

It has long been generally accepted that packing up your own lunch to take to work is cheaper than buying lunch every day. Being organised with our at-work-food-intake by making it in advance also helps us keep track of what we are eating and look after ourselves nutrition-wise; and it leaves our lunch break for

Review: Dad’s Root Beer

Please tell me you all love root beer? It is a popular American carbonated soda (fizzy pop!) originally made using the root of a sassafras plant (not anymore as that’s been banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration), along with other flavourings. I love the stuff. I tried it for the first time on

Review: Ozeri Serafino Glasses

These glass tumblers are made by a company called Ozeri. You may have seen Ozeri feature on lots of UK blogs over the last few weeks as, while they are already established in th USA, they are currently expanding into the UK. They are actually a supplier to the hotel industry, but also design contemporary products

Review: Vita Coco Coconut Water

I’ve mentioned drinking water a lot on here lately, but the people at Vita Coco think they’ve got something better to keep you hydrated – coconut water. Vita Coco’s all-natural, super-hydrating, fat-free, cholesterol-free, nutrient-packed, potassium-stacked, mega-electrolyte coconut water! I love coconut and coconut flavoured things but until now I’d never tried coconut water. I think

My Ditch the Plastic Challenge

During February I was challenged by SIGG to ditch the plastic – a challenge for which they sent me one of their metal bottles with an active top. When I first agreed to the challenge, before I wrote my post introducing it to you, I thought it would be no problem at all – easy even. I

Review: Welch’s Grape Juice Drinks

Welch’s have launched three new Grape juice drinks this year, and they have sent me a couple of them to try out – White Grape and Raspberry and Rose Grape Light. These long life juices start as 100% grape juice made with Concord grapes which have a bright colour and natural antioxidants, and have no added

Ditch the Plastic with SIGG

I have been challenged by SIGG to ditch the plastic this February – more specifically, to stop buying single use plastic bottles for one month. The fact is that in the UK we just don’t need to buy bottled water. We have clean running water in our homes, in our offices, in our schools, in

Review: Um Bongo

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist – anyone around my age can most probably remember some or all of that advert for Um Bongo, a juice drink aimed at kids waaaaaaaaaay back. And now it’s back! Actually there are two versions now – the original one, which is a combination of Apple, Lemon, Orange, Pineapple, Passion Fruit

Review: J2O Fridge Pack

I am a BzzAgent and this is a Bzz Review… I was recently sent on one of the new J2O Fridge Packs to try at home. I am already a fan of J2O, I enjoy the juice drinks very much and, even though they are very sweet, they are something nice to have when I

Let’s Get Bizzy with the Fizzy!

Back in April 2010 I was very lucky to win a Soda Stream in a competition run by the company over on Twitter. It’s the Genesis Drinks Maker and I’ve used it a lot over the last couple of years. It’s not dissimilar to the one I remember we had at home when I was

With the strapline “Taste Something New”, the Flavr Box Tasting Box is a new way to discover exceptional food and drink products made by some of the finest food makers in the UK. When you live in one town with supermarkets around you offering convenience, it is sometimes difficult to discover new foods, especially those

Lifebottle Competition

This competition is now closed. All comments before 8pm on the closing date have been approved and the winners will be announced in a new blog post in the next few days. Good luck!! The lovely people at tapwater.org have been very generous and have given me six lifebottles to give away. That means that

Lifebottle by tapwater.org

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about tapwater.org and the fact that they were trying to encourage people to ditch single use plastic water bottles in favour of reusable bottles. I thought, feel, that this is a very worthy campaign – while the plastic bottles you get mineral water in are generally recycled/recyclable, we
