Savour The Flavour With The EasiYo Yogurt Maker

Having very much enjoyed using and reviewing the EasiYo Yogurt Maker late last year, we’ve since continued to create our own yogurt, though we have stuck to strawberry flavours simply to keep the kids happy. 


EasiYo first came about in New Zealand’s South Island almost one hundred and fifty years ago. EasiYo’s parent company ‘Westland Milk Products’ has since created a wide range of high-quality, dairy-based products that are now sold worldwide.

EasiYo recently contacted us asking whether we’d be interested in trying some of their new yogurt mixes and flavours, which of course we were.…

Senor Pepper – The ‘Must Have’ Grab & Go Game

It’s come to that time of year when board games suddenly rise in popularity as families sit down around the table to enjoy some festive fun by playing their latest purchases.

We were recently sent Senor Pepper, a brand new, fast-paced family board game from University Games to rate and review.

What’s The Aim Of The Game?

The aim of the game is to be the first player to grab hold of the correct amount and colour of peppers and it’s not easy!

Flip your card over, count the senor peppers required and get grabbing! As I said, it’s far from easy as there are a few catches: there aren’t enough peppers for every player, two colours may cancel each other out and players also need to avoid the trap to win the cactus juice as a reward!…

Say YES to Yogurt With The EasiYo Yogurt Maker

If they had the chance, our kids would live on yogurt. They eat at least two yogurts a day, which is fantastic in terms of calcium intake, but not so great when it comes to the amount of sugar they consume.

Unlike the kids who favour strawberry and raspberry flavored Petit Filous yogurts, I much prefer greek style, plain yogurt, especially mixed with a digestive biscuit or two, which isn’t entirely healthy but is utterly delicious should you fancy giving it a try.


We were recently contacted by EasiYo, the creators of the world-famous yogurt making system, enquiring as to whether we’d be interested in giving their product a try.…

Hanging Out With The Hangrees

With it being the summer holidays, I have been willing to do almost anything to keep the kids entertained and happy. I’m not a huge fan of mess or goop so I must admit I was a little dubious when agreeing to review ‘The Hangrees‘ – the latest range of parody snack-based, slime creation to hit the market.

The kids, however, were overjoyed at the chance to get their hands a little sticky and of course to take a look at some new toys.

Snack Attack

We received a large box filled with goodies including a range of snacks, each wrapped in comedy packaging: Doritos became ‘Diaritos’, Reeces became ‘Reek’s’, Pringles became ‘Poo-ringles’ and a Burger King pack was renamed as ‘Booger King’.…
