New Products / Cappuchino kitkat

well, they are the two finger variety and i got them from Tesco about a fortnight ago.

They are nice, but smell stronger of coffee than they taste.


Foreign Products / Kit Kat Cubes

Local warehouse buy, tiny probably cm square cubes of very fine kitkat, they melt in the mouth and are lushness.


Foreign Products / Twix Topix
« on: October 18, 2007, 09:10:02 pm »

I have put them in the foreign section, because I am not sure they are a uk release, but anyway...

There is no biscuit, it is wafer, mixed with stuff, you can either have a caramel one, a cream one, or a machiatto one ( coffee).

They are nice, but they are triangular and not really a twix, if you see any, grab one and give it a go, they are worth a good try

New Products / Quality Streeet - 2 new

2 new flavours in quality street these days, namely a triple toffee thing, and a milk chocolate block.

Both quite nice, but, they have taken away the malted toffee and the chocolate block with the hazlenut in :( my two favourites

This is wierd. It is from Home Bargains, but the label is english. We had a box of 20 for 99p.

They are like two milky way rolls. Except, they are covered in chocolate and have bits of hazlenut on them. They are lushness complete.

Another home bargains purchase.

Look like celebrations, but appear to be small maranthon esque things but with different nuts, such as hazlenut, or pisctacho.

99p a box

You sound like her :D

Well, for the first time in 10 years I haven't worked for ages. I have been off sick since May and spent alot of this time stuck in the house.

However, I have regained a little of my freedom now, so I am going to share with you my secrets.

First came home bargains, which basically is okay to shop in, and has loads of brand names reduced. I have picked some lovely little things for the kids for christmas for dead cheap prices. Got series 10 of Friends for 99p a DVD, and a fantastic kingsize duvet set for £6.99

Then there is Argos Clearance, its basically end of runs from argos, dead cheap. We had a brand new game cube for £29.99 and some new curtains for our bedroom for £5.99, and they are lovely.

Oh, don't forget Next Clearance aswell, we got a new sofa bed which was pretty muchdesperate for £300, should have been £1049 in the catalogue. But, it was still in the plastic wrapper and all was dandy. Only had our first house guest on it last week, which was very exciting.

But then we come to Farmfoods, I always thought this place was the lowest of the low, really would never go in there. But, then I realised they did brand names, so I toodled along. It had 2 tubs of Ben n Jerrys ice cream for £2 (usually about £3.99 in the shops) They also have the massive pies I usually get in Morrisons for £2.99 for £1.50 each. It has made shopping a whole lot easier. It is also much cheaper on basic;s such as milk ( £1 for 2 pionts) and kingsmill bread 2 for £1. As with anything you have to be choosy when you get there, but its worth it.

I have also started R+Ring in Tesco's. Basically Tesco have a policy that if they overcharge you on any item you get the money back and get to keep the item. Last week i had a couple of chooks from there for free. They were mahoosive ones aswell, £5 odd a chook, but as they overcharged me I got my money back. If you shop in tesco its just a case of looking at the shelf label and the label on the item. If they don't match up  and you are charged higher than the shelf edge label then you are quids in.

Oh, another godsend is IKEa, they do lovely meatballs for £3 a bag ( 1kg) and they are by far the nicest I have eaten so far.

So, there you go, all my tips for shopping, even if it makes you a scabber :P

Remember Baci, they were like an alternative to Frerro Rocher. Well, I got some dark chocolate ones from Carols warehouse in Cannock, £1 a box and they were lushness.
