Drink Me Chocolate Chai Latte 20/03/2014

Does chocolate tea taste good?

Drink Me Chocolate Chai Latte It was love at first sip when I first tried the Drink Me Chai latte in Vanilla so I knew it would only be a matter of time before I worked my way through the other flavours. The chocolate version sounded very appealing but it has proved the hardest to get hold of. I eventually found it in a larger branch of Waitrose so I decided to grab it while I could, even though at £2.55 for 250g it was around 50p more expensive than I pay for other flavours elsewhere - and pricier than the other varieties within Waitrose as well. If I hadn't tried the vanilla chai latte, I doubt that I would have picked up the chocolate version. The drink is described as a blend of sweetened tea, milk, spices and chocolate. I like chocolate of course and don't mind tea but I wasn't too sure that I would want them mixed together, especially not with spices thrown in as well. Thankfully the combination does work, although I wont be adding chocolate to my regular tea anytime soon. The black tea extract in this drink accounts for only 2% of the ingredients so it doesn't actually taste much of tea. I don't mind that because the flavours left are pleasant and it also means that my family members that don't like tea are happy to drink this. The drink is in instant format so there is no brewing needed and it is a doddle to prepare. You just need to be careful to stir it well when you mix it up as you may get a chocolate layer in the bottom of the cup - not that is a hardship to spoon out! That done, you are ...

Alpro Soya Dark Chocolate 16/03/2014

It's sweet on the Dark side - Alpro dark chocolate dessert

I like chocolate desserts but many shop-bought ones contain gelatine so they are not suitable for a vegetarian such as myself. I knew I would be on safe ground with the Alpro Soya Dark Chocolate dessert pots as they are not only vegetarian but vegan as well. The inclusion of soya in any food is not generally a recommendation for me as I am not a huge fan of the taste although I like it more than I used to. However, I had previously bought and enjoyed the milk chocolate version of the desserts so I thought the dark ones would also taste nice. I was right on that one! Alpro desserts have the advantage of being a vegan food that is easy to get hold off in almost any supermarket although I find the dark chocolate dessert is less commonly stocked outside of health food shops compared to other flavours by the company. You can expect to pay around £1.49 in a supermarket and a little more elsewhere for the 4 pack. Again this makes them cheaper than many vegan puddings and I do find them on offer quite a lot, especially in Sainsbury's and Holland and Barrett. Look for them on the shelves with the "free from" foods or non chilled desserts, as they don't need to be refrigerated. Once I have them home I do pop them in the fridge though as their silky texture makes them especially delicious cold I think. They don't take long to chill so you can keep them in the cupboard almost until you need them. Handy for those of use with overstuffed fridges! They come in a pack of 4 nice and deep ...

5 Star Glue Stick Solid Washable Medium 12/03/2014

A sticky situation

5 Star Glue Stick Solid Washable Medium I was stuck just below the Amazon £10 cut off for free delivery when I remembered that I needed another glue stick. I found one for just 46p for 20g, and when I saw it was from the 5 Star brand I thought that it was definitely worth buying as I have used their products successfully before, both at home and at work. The reviews were a little mixed but it was cheap enough for me to take a chance on. The price has now risen to £1.64 for the same size, which is a big jump but apparently the RRP is £2.70. I have however seen it for under a pound in a local independent stationers. Definitely worth shopping around for! I tend to buy Pritt Sticks because I have found that cheaper ones are often a false economy because they either don't stick, or dry out quickly. I mainly use them for sticking notes and diagrams into the folders I use to organise my gardening job with planting plans e.t.c but also for crafting with my nieces and nephews most weeks. So I mainly need something to stick paper and card together which is what the glue is described as being suitable for. It wouldn't occur to me to use this kind of glue for anything else such as wood or fabric and it seems that is why some other buyers came away disappointed. If you keep to the paper, you should be fine though as I will explain below. The glue comes in a solid format in a twist up tube, like the Pritt sticks we all know. This makes it relatively mess free. The younger children tend to be a bit heavy handed with any glue ...
