Taking a close looky at the Zooki

By Finn H | April 23, 2024 | 0 Comments

Have you heard of these Zooki things? They’re supposed to be a more effective way of getting vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients into your diet because they allow you to consume these nutrients in liposomal form. As explained on the Zooki website, the liposomes in the Zooki sachets help to protect the nutrients so that they can reach the stomach…

You need to try the Enriched Eggs from Waitrose

By Finn H | April 6, 2024 | 0 Comments

If there’s one place to head to for a great selection of eggs, it’s got to be Waitrose. Over the years we’ve spotted everything from quails eggs to blue eggs in our local Waitrose, and even the standard free range eggs from Waitrose are described as being from ‘blacktail hens’. Very fancy. But it’s the Enriched Eggs from the Waitrose…

By Finn H | March 29, 2024 | 0 Comments

Andrew Huberman, a Stanford University scientist, is currently being “cancelled”. An NY Mag article was published last week which outlined how Huberman skillfully managed to maintain relationships with 6 women at the same time without any of them knowing. First of all, let me get something straight – as far as I can tell, Huberman has done nothing illegal here,…

A quack snack? You can now buy DUCK jerky in Marks & Spencer

By Finn H | March 24, 2024 | 0 Comments

I was browsing the snack aisle of my local M&S today (looking for reduced Percy Pigs, a favourite hobby of mine. Once I found bags selling for 50p and I bought about 15 of them), when something stopped me in my quacks (sorry, tracks).   It was a bag of duck jerky, something I’ve never seen before anywhere else. I…

Freezing jam doughnuts from the supermarket – an experiment gone right

By Finn H | February 25, 2024 | 0 Comments

When I walk into a supermarket and see the reduced section, I have no shame in saying that my eyes light up a little bit. It’s my chance to grab a bargain, and I love it. Often, when I see nice bread in the reduced section that has a best before date of the day I’ve found it, I’ll buy…

The 12 best non-alcoholic beers that we’ve bought & tried

By Finn H | February 24, 2024 | 0 Comments

Lockdown was a shock for many people, and it’s no wonder that alcohol consumption skyrocketed during this period. I know this too well myself – the first week of lockdown was basically a non-stop bender for me. I was drinking every day, and because I was stressed and on my own, I had no reason or desire to stay sober….

6 of the best tinned tomatoes you can buy in the UK

By Finn H | February 13, 2024 | 0 Comments

Tomatoes are the base of so many dishes – from curries to pasta sauces, most people keep a few tins of chopped tomatoes in the cupboard because they’re so often required in recipes. But we’d also say that despite many dishes requiring tinned tomatoes, most people don’t give much thought to the type of tinned tomatoes that they use in…

The best tinned sardines we’ve bought & tried

By Finn H | January 29, 2024 | 0 Comments

We think sardines are really underrated, especially given how healthy they are. Just like most fish, sardines are a great source of protein and vitamins. Plus, they taste pretty excellent in our opinion. Getting fresh sardines can be quite hard, but it’s usually pretty easy to find tinned sardines. There are some tinned sardines which are better than others, so…

By Finn H | January 14, 2024 | 0 Comments

We love to eat jelly, not just because it’s tasty and wobbly, but also because it can actually be quite a healthy snack (especially if you choose a sugar free jelly). But if there’s one thing that we don’t like about jelly, it’s having to wait for it to set. The setting time of jelly largely depends on the type…
