Ugly Drinks

I’ll be honest I cannot see the point in sparkling water. Why do I want to drink plain fizzy water that dries the mouth rather than quenches the thirst? Anyone else in this same camp? A couple of weeks ago the lovely people at Ugly drinks contacted me asking if I would be interested in trying their new sparkling fruity water. Now I am intrigued to see if they can change my opinion on sparkling water so let’s get our #glugugly on.  What is Ugly and why call a drink this? Well in a nutshell Joe & Hugh have decided enough…

PG Tips Peppermint Capsules

Rejoice there are now Nespresso compatible tea capsules! PG Tips haven’t just gone for their standard tea, oh no no, they have hit us with 4 new compatible capsules, Caramel & Vanilla Black Tea, Green Tea, Raspberry & Apple and today’s review Peppermint. I heart Peppermint tea and the very fact there is now PG Tips Peppermint Capsules excites me greatly. I picked these up at Waitrose on offer for £2.00. Unlike the Nespresso pods I have used before the PG Tips ones require you to peel back the film before popping them in. I was slightly concerned what the intensity…

Malibu Strawberry Kiwi

Malibu already have a couple of ready to drink cans including the more normal end of the scale with Malibu and Cola to the more exotic Malibu and Pineapple. Edging us towards the summery side of things we now have Malibu Strawberry Kiwi.  I love Malibu and without a doubt I have to have a bottle at Christmas, and I must say last year we were on top form with the Malibu based cocktails. When I spied that Malibu were creating a new ready to drink number, I was rather enticed by their addition of strawberry and went on the hunt for a can. …

Café Royal Caramel Nespresso Compatible

In Sainsbury’s we spied these Café Royal Caramel capsules that are compatable with Nespresso, and is the first flavoured compatible capsule we have seen, thus decided to take the plunge.  Presented in a compact cardboard box, these Café Royal Caramel capsules were £3 for 10, not too bad a price for a flavoured number. Daddio opted for a longer drink of 2 capsules and hot frothy milk albeit our Nespresso Aeroccino appears to no…

Hooper’s Alcoholic Brews

It’s a long weekend Hurrah!!! We all know I am all for supporting British made products and today’s review is exactly that. The lovely Hooper’s offered to send me some of their ‘true British’ refreshments to review and before I knew it 12 bottles of their Alcoholic Brews arrived. So who are Hooper’s I hear you ask? Hooper’s came about after William Hooper spent the early 19th century globetrotting and was inspired to create a new range of refreshing alcoholic beverages; from there Hopper’s was born. Proud to be British, today Hooper’s has a range of 4% ABV traditionally British alcoholic brews available in…
