I think I'd rather eat the veggie option if we're talking about six months out of date ready made chicken katsu. Or I'd just make it at home given it's fried chicken.

I've never had one but the idea of a pizza where none of the toppings get crispy, just steamed in their own juices, seems off-putting.

I don't understand this at all. It's the exact same concept as a pie or a pasty. Nor have I ever considered it important that the toppings of a pizza be "crispy". You're just living in your own mad little world, trying to drag us all in with you! Well, I, for one, am not having it!

You've got to get them somewhere that does "real pizza", nit the kind of place that will sell you one with kebab meat as a filling.

That said the merits of a donner calzone cannot be understated.

These are an acquired taste. Seemed to be like a mixture between the cool original flavour and sour cream and chive. I don't think it helps that the flavouring isn't evenly spread, so some chips taste far stronger than others. Quite nice with salsa, though.

I'm a sucker for special edition flavours of soft drinks. Coca Cola Zero with watermelon and strawberry. Initial taste nice, refreshing. Then you get the sickliness of the Coke flavour, completely ruining it. Not as bad as the Intergalactic flavour though. I'd say it's sort of on a par with Pepsi Raspberry.

Amazon's roasted peanuts a bit naff, but it was £1.35 for a 500g bag so I can't complain.

I've also tried Cadbury's almond 'plant bar' but it's not for me. It's like all the bad things Kraft/Mondelez have done to dairy milk intensified.

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.

Mushroom season is looking grim with all the drought we've had here this year. Normally I go out foraging every autumn, but I went to one of my favourite spots this weekend just to look around, and the ground is bone dry. Unless we get a lot of rain fast, I don't think it'll be worth bothering at all this year.

Problem is, the tastiest varieties of wild mushroom like bay bolete or pennybun can't be grown.

Also, nothing beats the feeling of spending two hours in the woods, enjoying the scenery, getting plenty of fresh air and some exercise, and going home with a full wicker basket.

Bit like catch and keep fishing really, which I also enjoy. It's not just about going home with a nice meal that evening, but about spending a day in nature.

As I've gone to the mat to explain previously, I don't have one of those. I got my £1.70 back and I've been scared straight from ever eating from Asda ever again, not sure why I'd want a life time supply of carcino-wiches.

There is one thing you can try, and that is to put slices of a freshly picked pennybun cap under an oak, beech or pine tree in your back garden so that it can release spores into the ground. Like other wild mushrooms, pennybun forms a symbiotic relationship with certain tree species. Unfortunately, we don't have oak, beech or pine here, just hornbeam, Norway maple, English yew and a few fruit trees. And the success rate is said to be not great even if you have the right trees.

So yeah, pennybun, like some other wild mushrooms, are picky bastards. They want you to come get them in their natural habitat.

While deathcaps aren't bothered. I've seen plenty of them in the nearby park here, and one year, our neighbours even had some growing at the bottom of a hedge front of their house. They had no clue, but I went over and told them. Didn't want their little kids to find out the hard way.

These are Goodfellas' challenger to the Chicago Town pizza. As they're stonebaked they're superior in quality, but when I want a mini pizza I want that sensation of biting into something squalid so the Chicago Town wins.

It's alright with a hit of balsamic drizzled onto it.

They look like they have a significantly higher bread to topping ratio, which isn't what I want out of a frozen pizza. Might as well just have cheese on toast with a splash of tomato puree the state of some frozen pizzas. The good thing about the Chicago Town is how they have that gooey ooze of cheese and tomato sauce when you bite in.

I'll have to give them a try before I pass judgement mind. Frozen pizza is a staple of my diet ever since I started working shifts and just don't have the inclination to cook when I get home.

The cheese and onion pasty they do is lovely. Or, at least, they use sharp cheddar which makes it seem far better than the competition.

Iceland chips are probably my favourite frozen chips, but I chucked them in the air fryer with some salt and it's taken them to a whole new level.
