Mini Chou Chou Foxes Dolls by Zapf Creation Review:

Hello everyone,

It’s been a few week’s since my last post so first of all i do apologise,

Today i am going to be reviewing the Mini Chou Chou Foxes doll’s by Zapf Creation these product’s are new so when i was asked if i would like to review one for my little girl i jumped at the chance.

10421537_733426033468159_2741834785358228443_n

My little girl has always loved playing with doll’s from being 2+ year’s old she is now turning 5 in October but i do not think any girl will ever stop playing with dolls especially when there is new product’s coming out every year.

L was delighted when i received the mini chou chou fox doll to review and burst the packaging open with excitement we were greeted by the lovely Judy doll. Each doll has a name and unique characteristics and they also come with a unique facial expression. Judy maintains a watchful eye and notices if something doesn’t seem quite right and will inform the other inhabitants within the magic forest.

The Chou Chou’s also come with a magical pet friend our friend was a little purple fox, Judy’s little fox friend is always by her side and helps her to convey her unique character trait to the children.

These product’s are great collectibles and L has already asked if she can have more from Christmas and her birthday, there is hour’s of fun with these they are mini but it would be easy to take out without worrying about carrying them or where to put them they would easily fit in a handbag.

The mini Chou Chou’s live in a magical forest covered in beautiful oak trees. When the clock strikes 10pm the mini Chou Chou’s take you on a journey to their fairy tale world. The arm’s and leg’s on the doll’s move and they also have removable hat’s and outfit’s not that L want’s to change anything about Judy she look’s pretty just the way she is (L’s words)

The mini doll’s are around 12cm in height and are suitable for age’s 3+ and they retail from £5.33 – £7.99 which is a very reasonable price and would be worth every penny when you have the full collection. There are 20 mini Chou Chou fox doll’s to collect and they are all different with a range of magical friend’s you can also buy extra’s for these doll”s e.g. the Cuckoo clock house, bed set’s with exclusive doll Emely, playground set’s with exclusive doll Susy and the tree house with exclusive Livy doll.

I think all of the mini Chou Chou’s have lovely name’s the other names are: Elly, Vicky, Sunny, Christy, Holly, Ruby, Flory, Jacky, Lilly, Candy, Amy, Lucy, Anny, Kathy, Kimy, Josy, Judy, Gracy, Lucky and Beauty if i had to choose my favourite it would simply be impossible as they are all beautiful and look so life like i wish we had product’s like these when i was a child!

Overall myself and L were very happy with the foxes doll and the only regret i have is not knowing about them sooner hopefully with L’s birthday approaching and Christmas i could put them on the list for Santa and also have some of the bigger feature’s for L and her dolly’s to play with.

As always i will link all information and website’s below and would recommend for you to follow on social media platform’s to keep up to date with new product launches, new’s information and competition, thank you for reading my review i hope you all enjoyed reading as much as me and L enjoyed trying and reviewing the new Chou Chou fox doll.

Tunnock’s Biscuit’s Review:

Hello everyone,

Today i am going to be reviewing some gorgeous biscuit’s i very kindly had sent to try and review on my blog, I have been a big fan of milk chocolate caramel wafer’s for many year’s now so i very kindly emailed Tunnock’s in the kindest possible way and asked if it would be possible for a sample to review on my blog.

I was very kindly sent a box of goodie’s a few month’s back now but i have been really ill hence why i have not been posting on my blog much, but i am fully better now so hopefully i can continue my blogging obsession. Tunnock’s is one of my favorite biscuit companies so as soon as i received my parcel my face lit up i was sent out 2 more packet’s of biscuit’s to review on my blog which are a 8 pack of caramel log biscuit’s and a 8 pack of dark chocolate wafer biscuit’s.

1234339_1447488385561414_5347453991334957443_n

Firstly i am going to be reviewing the dark chocolate caramel wafer biscuit’s, the milk chocolate wafer’s are my favorite so i was diving straight into the pack of dark chocolate as this was something new for me to try. I am always honest in my review’s and i absolutely HATE dark chocolate! but these biscuit’s where yummy, i always love the 5 layer’s of wafer biscuit’s they are a lovely crunchy texture and the dark chocolate is not over powering. The blend of chocolate, caramel and wafer go really well together and this is a biscuit i could enjoy every day each biscuit has 5 layer’s of wafer, 4 layer’s of caramel and if fully coated in real dark chocolate.

11244714_1447490888894497_6662674788667798316_n

This was the first time i have tried the dark chocolate wafer’s and i have to say i really enjoyed them i would certainly buy them if i come across them in the supermarket, I also like the packaging i always think you can tell a lot about a company just by packaging if they are willing to put time and effort into making a product not only taste delicious but also look eye catching and really stand’s out.

11216254_1447484385561814_1036233881225335527_n

Each biscuit is individually wrapped in a lovely shiny metallic blue and gold paper so this keep’s the biscuit nice and fresh as you can see on the picture the biscuit has a very generous amount of chocolate coating and anybody who love’s chocolate / dark chocolate i would urge you to try if you haven’t in the past.

11295542_1447484392228480_1757096530758467457_n

Overall i was really happy with this biscuit Tunnock’s did not fail to disappoint and this must be the only dark chocolate product that i like and would purchase again after trying.


Last off all i will be reviewing the second product i was very kindly sent to try and review this again was the first time i have tried the caramel log biscuit’s i am not a big fan of coconut either but after sharing with my family they was gone in a matter of hour’s! my dad is a big fan of coconut chocolate and biscuit’s so he was really pleased with the way Tunnock’s presented all of his favorite ingredient’s into one tasty bar.

11011474_1447488545561398_2704129680850660372_n

The caramel log biscuit’s are a wafer and caramel biscuit fully covered in chocolate and sprinkled with roasted coconut again these are a tasty biscuit with lot’s of layer’s of wafer and caramel. If you are a fan of coconut’s i would highly recommend for you to try these biscuit’s.

Unfortunately these biscuit’s got eaten so fast i could not take a picture of the actual biscuit so i have had to copy one from google ( i do apologise ) but when i buy more in the future i will take picture’s and edit my review. As you can see from the picture there is a generous amount of roasted coconut covering the biscuit some of you may think it would just taste like a coconut wafer but i could taste all ingredient’s (the caramel, chocolate and coconut)

Overall i have really enjoyed working with Tunnock’s trying and reviewing product’s i have not yet tried before but i will now be buying in the future my favorite out of them both would have to be the dark chocolate caramel wafer biscuit’s but my dad is a big fan now of the caramel log biscuit’s.

A little information from Tunnock’s website:

How do you create ever-popular biscuit products? Well, start with excellent ingredients. Add layers of ownership by the same, caring family. Then cover with a generous sprinkling of attention to detail and personal service.

This winning formula was initiated by Thomas Tunnock in 1890, after he paid £80 for a shop in Uddingston. Under the guidance of Thomas (and later his son, Archie), Tunnock’s operated only as bakers and purveyors of quality flour confectionery until the 1950s. This decade saw the emergence of four original speciality items: Caramel Wafers, Snowballs, Caramel Logs and Teacakes. Consequently, business boomed and factory extensions followed, the latest as recent as 2002.

The innovative management has always remained true to the original principles and is close to the local community. Indeed, it is funny how the more things change at Tunnock’s, the more they stay the same.

I will be buying more Tunnock’s product’s and will be reviewing them on my blog soon, i also have some other new and exciting product’s i will be reviewing in the upcoming week’s and really hope you all enjoy reading my review’s.

I will as always link website and link’s below i would as always advise for you to follow social media page’s to stay up to date with latest competition’s, new’s, new product’s and information etc.

Tunnock’s have a mouth watering range of tasty biscuit’s for all the family to enjoy including:

  • Milk chocolate caramel wafer’s
  • Dark chocolate caramel wafer’s
  • Milk chocolate tea cake’s
  • Dark chocolate tea cake’s
  • Caramel log
  • Chocolate wafer cream
  • Chocolate snowball’s

All Tunnock’s product’s are available in a large amount of store’s e.g. Pound store’s, Tesco, Morrison’s, Amazon, Tunnock’s website etc and product’s can retail from as little as £1 which is a very reasonable price for a yummy mouth watering biscuit / treat.

Scheckter’s Organic Energy Drink Review’s:

Hello everyone,

Today i am going to be reviewing 2 new product’s i have been very kindly sent to try and review.

I have never heard of Scheckter’s energy drink’s before so when a friend recommended for me to try them i headed straight to there website i must say there site is fab lot’s of information about product’s and what they are for etc.

One thing i like most is looking on website’s to find out how company’s where established in this case Scheckter’s was created in 2010 by a racing driver ( Toby Scheckter’s) and son of formula 1 (Jody Scheckter’s) and this company where the first to make a organic, vegetarian and Fairtrade certified energy drink.

11221840_1443712749272311_7566320456842220093_n

When i received my parcel i was really excited to open it as i new exactly which company it was from with a nice logo on the box, the 2 can’s where protected very well in bubble wrap with some fun sticker’s and a little but lovely message from the company i was also sent a card with Scheckter’s information on e.g email address, telephone number etc along with a information leaflet about the product’s and also where i can purchase them from which i thought was lovely as i always like reading information about company’s.

Organic original energy drink review: 

Firstly i will be talking about the original sparkling energy fruit flavor drink, I love the can’s they have a really lovely texture to them they are not just a simple energy drink can they have been very well thought about and the useful information is all on the can’s followed by a list of ingredient’s and lovely bold letter’s on the front of the can’s to make them stand out if i seen these in my local supermarket i would certainly pick one up.

I do love my energy drink’s but recently i have been unable to drink them due to the lack of sugar i use to like Monster drink’s but since reading about the sugar’s and what is actually included in the drink i just seemed to stop buying them. Now that i have found a company that i like who have created a perfect refreshing drink which is healthy and organic.

11072002_1443712789272307_7619605564554743282_n

I had my can first thing yesterday morning as i was having a tired day but after drinking the energy drink it certainly gave me the boost i needed to start my day. This is a lovely refreshing drink but is so much healthier than any other energy drink’s for the people who buy drink’s like these you will no how much sugar is in a normal one e.g. red bull, monster’s have around 36g of sugar but these can’s have no more than 7-8g which i was very surprised about as they are lovely and you can tell they are organic and natural ingredient’s. The Organic energy drink’s also include 80mg of caffeine which is equivalent to a cup of expresso coffee why i decided to drink mine in the morning as coffee keep’s me awake.

11206063_1443712802605639_2590837358961984413_n

Overall i was really happy with trying the original can as this was the first time i have tried these drink’s the only thing i regret it not being made aware of this company sooner. I have enjoyed trying both as the flavor’s go great together they are refreshing so great for summer to for anybody who like’s organic product’s like myself you will definitely not be disappointed by trying the original can and i was really hoping for my ‘lite’ can to be just as nice i was worrying a little as i was not expecting it to be as nice but none of these product’s failed to disappoint.



Organic lite energy drink: 

Last of all i am going to be sharing my review’s about the lite energy can which i tried this morning, again i wanted to have in the morning as this can also includes 80mg of caffeine the lite is available in a fruit drink also which is lovely i put this 1 in the fridge to enjoy cold and it was so much nicer the blend of fruit’s are all noticeable the taste is a mix of lemon juice, pomegranate juice and elderberry juice so if you are a fan of these flavor’s i would highly recommend to try these! Scheckter’s have really pulled of a delicious drink and has certainly considered me to start buying more my dad also take’s 2 to work every night as he work’s night’s and i did let him try a bit of 1 my original can an he loved it just as much he is now thinking of changing energy drink’s and taking 2 of these which is great.

11092110_1443712745938978_2548362153634303836_n

Overall i am really happy with this can too both drink’s have a enjoying taste they are a little different to other brand’s as they are organic and natural but they make you feel so active. I had my niece for the weekend and after feeling tired for the past few day’s i was dreading it because i knew i was going to be tired when she was here but these drink’s have give me the boost i needed to stay active and on the go i have just ordered more from Amazon! 🙂


A little information from Scheckter’s website: 

Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy drink was initially launched in the United Kingdom and is now also available in the USA, South Africa, Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Finland and Russia (with more countries to come!)

The flavour of Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy comes from a mix of organic Sicilian lemon juice,
Eastern Mediterranean organic pomegranate juice and organic elderberry juice from Central Europe.

The organic lemon juice also acts as a natural preservative but because this makes the drink a bit tart we add a little raw cane sugar (in Scheckter’s Original)
or agave nectar (in Scheckter’s LITE) to create a pleasant taste.

To provide you a sustained energy boost without the crash we use our OrganicEnergy blend of raw green coffee beans,
Brazilian guarana, green tea and ginseng.

Every can of Scheckter’s OrganicEnergy contains the perfect combination of organic and natural ingredients to provide you a sustained energy boost.

WHEN TO DRINK A CAN OF SCHECKTER’S

Morning: A kick start to your morning.

Afternoon: A refreshing drink to get you through the dreaded afternoon slump.

Workout: A great companion to provide an extra boost of energy before or after exercise.

Evening: A tasty mixer for an evening drink.

Organic energy drink’s are available in most store’s e.g. Asda, Holland & Barrett, Ocado, Planet Organic, Tesco, Waitrose, Whole Food’s Market and many more! also available in the UK, USA, SA & other countries. Both can’s retail around £1.28-£1.35 which to me is great value for money it is worth every penny for such a creative product this company have also earned lot’s of award’s for being the first company to create a organic, vegetarian and Fairtrade if you would like to find out more information about this company you can by clicking here or if you would like to make a purchase you can pick your favorite retailer here.

Thank you for reading everyone i hope you all enjoyed my review as much as i enjoyed trying them and also working with this company.

If anybody has any question’s or would like to ask me anything please feel free i will be more than happy to answer all question’s best i can. Has anybody else ever tried these drink’s or would recommend any other’s?
Would love to hear more review’s and feedback! 🙂
