Galaxy Light Style Instant Hot Chocolate Review

There is an explosion of new hot chocolate drinks on the supermarket shelves. They’re coming from all the main players including Cadbury, Options and Galaxy. The problem is, they’re all so high in sugar which of course means calories.

Even Options, well known for their wide and delicious range of 40 calorie hot drinks, has decided to join the high cal, high sugar brigade with their luxurious range. It seems that the whole ‘cutting down on sugar’ idea just isn't catching on to some manufacturers!

Pret a Manger Soup Review & Calorie Comparison

Pret a Manger soup potPopping out for a bite to eat recently, I stopped into a branch of Pret a Manger. Since it was icy cold outside, my fingers needed some warming up and what could be better than a pot of soup?

I hadn’t tried any of the Pret soup range before and once I saw the varieties available, I couldn't resist buying one.

Kingsmill Great White High Fibre Bread Review

Kingsmill great white high fibre breadMost of us by now are probably aware of the benefits of eating whole grains. One of the easiest ways to do this is swapping from white bread to wholemeal. However, the taste is very different and many people prefer sticking to their familiar white loaves.

There is a halfway house solution provided by Kingsmill’s 50/50 loaves, Warburtons Half & Half and Hovis’ Best of Both. These look very much like white bread and taste quite similar, but have much more fibre. They do provide a good compromise, but now there’s a new variety on the shelves called Kingsmill Great White. This deliciously soft white bread has as much fibre as wholemeal and tastes just like white bread.

Propercorn Popcorn Sour Cream, Sweet & Salty Review

Proper Corn popcorn packetsA trip to the cinema wouldn't be complete without the obligatory popcorn to snack on. But once you know the average box of cinema popcorn contains over 500 calories, it can lose it's appeal, especially if you're watching your weight.

Of course, if you really can't do without popcorn while engrossed in a great film, you can always bring your own (though you may have to sneak it in, in some cinemas!)
