Tyson Fury has released a range of energy drinks at Iceland. They're surprisingly good. The Original flavour tasted like generic energy drink, not interesting. Black & Blue Raspberry was a better take on blue raspberry than Reign or Rockstar, quite sour (which I like) but a light, easy drink. Sour Cherry Knockout, again, quite sour, but of all the cherry energy drinks I've had, this is the best. Not sickly sweet. I have Sour Apple Punch in my fridge, but I am putting that one off as I rarely like artificial apple flavour. Also of note, a 500ml can has 22g of sugar in. In comparison, a 500ml can of regular Monster has about 55g. I'm not paid by Tyson Fury to shill his products, I am just genuinely blown away by the quality of his product.

I saw that stuff when I was stood in the queue the other day, and I had to stop and think for a moment before I realised Tyson Fury is a sort of famous person, and "Furocity" is a play on his name; rather than my initial assumption that the internet is leaking so badly nowadays Iceland are marketing energy drinks at furries.

Mint flavour Penguins are shit, the cheapo Asda rip-offs are way better. Plain Penguins however, are superior to any of their imitators.
Can't quite put my finger on why but that's how it is.
(What did the penguin get from the genie? Three fishes.)

I'm stupid and get easily drawn in by mystery flavours. There's a new Intergalactic flavour Coke. It's a sort of dark pink colour, initially tastes like normal Coke Zero, then a horrible sickly sweet almost biscuity aftertaste. Anyway, I drank a can and threw up, so I can only give it 2/10.

These weren't bad. I got it reduced for 88p and they're nowhere near the supposed full price of £3.50. My main gripe is that there wasn't enough pancakes to go with the filling.

Golden Wonder spring onion flavour crisps might be the best choice for a crisp sandwich.

These are almost certainly already in the thread somewhere, since you're all vegan hippies, but anyway.
Typically, I can't really tell the difference between a gelatin based or plant based gummy sweet, they both have a basically identical consistency. But this brand has, I assume deliberately, gone with a different texture entirely, and I find it deeply pleasing. It's very toothsome, I don't know if I can really describe the texture better than saying it's like an al dente York Fruit.
I predict everyone else will pile in to say how much they hate them, but for me it's the exact perfect mouthfeel for a gummy sweet. The flavour is fine, maybe they lean too heavily on grapefruit for their sour flavours, but the non-sour gummy bears are probably their best all-rounders.

Things like this and "Innocent" smoothies can fuck right off. I want to see what Aussies can do with this nomenclature. I look forward to "SOUR CUNTS" and "CHEWY HUNTSMEN".

Fruit Pastilles are noticably less chewy since changing to a vegan recipe. They also melt a lot faster, and the flavour feels a bit more intense, like undiluted cordial. This is from the type of person who eats a 4 pack in one sitting, though, so if you have self control you probably wouldn't notice.

There's a springy quality to gelatine sweets that nobody has managed to replicate. Gelatine sweets tend to give a little before breaking apart, but the vegan ones just squish. Fruit Pastilles are fairly passable, but vegan Fruit Gums or Starmix wouldn't work at all.

I watched all of this and don't know why. I can't believe anyone actually talks like this, let alone an entire reason. I couldn't keep up with the energy for 5 minutes.

It's strange to watch a man you quite dislike engaging in repeated acts of self-harm. I take no joy in it, just a peculiar sense that the crime is its own punishment. His missus died last year of a heart attack, which a lot of people would have taken as a wake-up call.
|>>|| No. 15107
2 years ago he was a nobody. Now he's one of the most well known people in Britain. He has a choice - give up the channel and die an unknown, or embrace the gluttony and die of a heart attack but as a hero. The candle that burns twice bright lasts half as long.

The top rated comment on the last video is about his dead wife, people really seem to like bringing it up.
If you go on the Rate My Takeaway Facebook or Twitter pages it's largely people sending in pictures of their takeaways to be rated as the name suggests, you fucking thicko and most look quite nice, but I also saw this "curry" abomination.

I'm starting to think I should pay more for eggs. Picked these up because they were reduced and, even though the box says they're medium, they're much larger than supermarket own-brand eggs and they had a rather nice large and slightly orange yolk.
|>>|| No. 15110
They are definitely one of the staples that are worth splashing the cash on. Having said that, I have found that lidl have perhaps the best "cheap" free range eggs, their yolks are lovely and golden. Though maybe they just feed their hens a load of paprika, who knows.
|>>|| No. 15111
The intensity of an egg yolk's colour does come from carotin. If you add plenty of it to your chicken feed, the yolk will assume an intense yellow golden colour.
The presence or absence of that isn't really a mark of quality or lack thereof. But permanently adding it to your livestock's diet probably costs 1-2p more per laid egg, so you're looking at 20p more per carton. Profit margins are small for Big Egg as it is, so it's an expense that many egg producers will be willing to avoid.

Chickpea pasta is a pure abomination. Never again.

I made a lasagne where for a layer I hardboiled and then sliced a load of eggs. It was great.

I think chicken is the only thing Linda McCartney are worse at than Quorn. This was another veggie offering where the first few bites were alright, but then the flavour started dissipating.

Just had a McSpicy. I'm sure it's not as spicy as it was last year when it was about.

I'm going to start reviewing protein shakes here because this one sucks and I want to remember not to buy it again.
It's not the worst thing ever but it's thin and bitty. There's no ideal water/powder ratio, something sucks about it whatever you do.
But at £14.99 per kilo that's not bad.
22.5g Protein per 30g (£0.45p)

Is that pasta with chickpeas or chickpeas formed into a pseudo-pasta like object?

That is a disgrace, how can you think of making a dried pasta without semolina?

It's for those unfortunate gluten intolerant souls. My girlfriend got it because she works at a charity with a food bank and not even the paupers want it, although they can be quite picky in general.

I really like their stuff, but I think they're an Israeli company or manufacture in Israel so I'm boycotting them.

It had a slightly funny taste to it as well. I want to say something like Primula. Some form of cheese that's not your typical variety but I'm not entirely sure which one.

These are £16 a packet in Sainsburies, which is about half a kilo, so about twice the cost of the Peak Supps one, as well as having less protein per serving. They've changed the recipe and bag size since this image was made.
Thing is, this one is fully delicious. As good if not better than a real chocolate milkshake.
18g protein per serving, 20 servings so 80p each.

They've done a good job at making them look like literal utter shite though.

Had white pudding for the first time. Not really anything to write home about. Just tasted like a shit sausage.
