Iceland have been doing a giveaway of free lollies with any purchase for just over a week now; it's meant to be for bonus card members but the barcode isn't account specific so if you just get them to scan in this image on your phone it'll work.

So far I've had drumstick squashies, parma violets and dib dabs. The dib dabs have probably been my favourite.

I think this is probably the best place to ask this question :

Has anyone figured out how to make an electrolyte powder/drink that tastes nice yet?

It's been a few years since I tried any, I used to get the SIS ones and they were "fine" but still pretty bad. I really don't care if they're full of sugar, I'm not training for Le Tour, I'm trying not to die while roasting in the sun at work.

Maybe I'm a miserable old git, but does food being in a star shape improve it at all? When I'm eating pork stuffing with cranberry and apple, I never wished it was a star shape. Same thing goes for the turkey twizzler, just give me a slab of meat, not some ostentatious spiral.

A lot of local newspapers have fallen under the 'Live' umbrella, e.g. the Hull Daily Mail is Hull Live online, the Birmingham Mail is Birmingham Live online, the Stoke Sentinel is Stoke Live online, etc.

They're all owned by Reach, who also own The Mirror, Daily Star, Daily Express and OK Magazine, amongst others, which is why you'll constantly see stories regurgitated from one of the local papers they own into the nationals and vice versa.

Actually, looking into it, I think Leeds Live are completely separate and are just looking to piggyback off the Live branding.

McDonald's drive-thru in Leyland blocked by angry man who refused to wait for sausage and egg McMuffins

The stalemate began at around 9.30am shortly after the customer, Stuart Yates, 55, drove up to the restaurant on Churchill Way and requested the two breakfast meals.

He said: “A week ago I got made to wait in the car park for over 15 minutes. A lad spotted me and said ‘oh, it’s him again’, because last time I complained. They said go and wait in the car park… I said ‘I’m not going anywhere until I get my food’.”

The drive-thru lane has been closed and police have been called to the scene.

Does anyone know a good recipe or have tips for curry laksa? It's something I've been meaning to get right for a long time but it's quite a complicated dish to get right going to by how hard it is to find good laksa in this country. I'm specifically looking for something that has a good amount of spice to warm your belly but at the same time the creamy base that South-East-Asian cuisine is known for.

I met a nice lass for dinner and we both had a good time talking for hours about nothing and having a stroll around the park where she let me hold her hand after I moved a bug from her hair. But I also said I can make pretty good laksa. I've dug my own grave a bit.

In terms of health and fitness? You can't go far wrong with oats or eggs. Oats are quite nutrient dense, high in fibre and protein and will keep you feeling full. Eggs are very nutrient dense and high in protein.

For breakfast, I personally go with:
1) Porridge oats cooked in the microwave with half water, half milk, a chopped banana, ginger and honey
2) Dry oats mixed with cold yoghurt, chopped banana, frozen berries, whey protein powder
3) Two or three eggs, put in boiling water for about five minutes from the fridge so the yolks are still soft, and a couple of slices of toast
4) As a treat, a ham and cheese croissant done in the oven
5) For weekends where I have no plans other than to eat until midday, I'll make a bacon and egg fry-up or thin pancakes with grated cheese and ham

If all else fails or I'm pushed for time, a cup of coffee and a piece of fruit will get me by.

Coffee and a cig has served me well for the best part of the last decade. I started putting on a bit of tub when I switched the fags out for a vape though, so if you want to stay lean stick to the Marlboros, is all I'll say.

Lass I know is a nutritionist and swears by oats. Apparently you should do them with salt and if you want flavour, peanut butter is one of the most nutrient dense things you can have. (Proper peanut butter mind, not the stuff they put in Reeses cups.) She's also an anti-vaxxer and reckons dairy gives you depression, though, so I'm not sure how much of her expertise actually veers into quack territory.

Come to think of it I don't think I've ever met a food/health expert who didn't have at least one slightly mental belief to make you question the rest of their qualification.

The problem with giving nutritional advice is the same as in public health generally, there's pitfalls in applying population level data to individuals. Biology is so complex and there are so many mechanisms at play that we use blunt statistical tools to say, "this seemed to work this way on average for most people", but of course that's only a first approximation and a lot more needs to be done for the person in front of you.

Another issue is that some people then people make the opposite error, and conclude that if something has adversely affected them and/or a select few cases, then it must not be good for anyone. For example, you have people that swear by meat only diets, when in reality they've probably unknowingly eliminated some allergen that bothers them but most other people can tolerate pretty well.

Understanding this is one of the key differences between being a good and bad practitioner (of anything related to health, dietician, physio, etc.), in my opinion.

What're your favorite biscuit, britfa.gs?

I usually go for the good old digestive, sometimes hobnobs or rich tea, rarely a pack of malts, but usually buy a box of broken biscuits (lower overall quality but usually a reasonable selection).
Foxes biscuits are okay but they're very oily, so much infact that you can see it on your tea after dunking 2 or 3. Hobnobs similarly.
I haven't had pink panthers wafers since Grandma died.

Feel free to suggest more creative common names for your favorites; most of those in the picture are shit.

Non-stick coatings are made from a plastic called PTFE. It is almost completely inert below about 250°C and is widely used in medical devices and the chemicals industry for this reason - it just doesn't want to react with anything. Unfortunately it's also very soft and the non-stick properties mean that it's difficult to adhere it to metal.

It's totally harmless unless you massively overheat it, but it's also inherently fragile. Avoid using metal implements or scourers.

Depends. How far from scratch are you starting? Are you using chopped tomatoes and passata or starting from a whole fresh fruit?

The key generally is getting the amount of water right, which is a matter of reducing it down. Tomatoes are 99.9% water and 0.1% flavour. If you add in a good dollop of concentrated tomato puree it'll give you a lot of extra punch. After that it's all about seasoning, you shouldn't need more than some salt, pepper and a bit of basil, but just use your tastebuds. I like a dash of garlic infused olive oil in mine. Don't listen to any cunt who says sugar.

Don't be shy with the salt, either, don't be one of these fannies who thinks it's bad for you and that food should somehow miraculously taste good without it. Salt and fat are the vectors through which flavour travels, and that's just a scientific fact. If you've ever eaten at an Italian restaurant, you're basically paying an extra tenner for them to put twice the amount of salt in.

Who even fucking likes the toffee coins. No one. And they put more in that anything else.

This picture says a lot anyway. Toffee fudge and caramel chocolates are pretty much just all pure sugar so they're cheap which is why the tin is stuffed with them. Prailine, chocolate, nuts, are the more expensive ingredients so that's why there's so few of those on the right.
