Weight Watchers Iced Desserts Giveaway

Spring is here, the weather has been remarkable, dare I say summery of late. It has lifted my spirits and made me want to BBQ, eat salad and the sound of the ice cream van tinkling along the street means summer may be here soon.

For those who are watching their weight, it can be a time when ice creams and cold desserts are a complete no.

Fortunately Weight Watchers have launched some fab desserts options that mean you don't have to miss out. With six varieties to choose from you will find something to eat on a summers day and not be pining if others are tucking into Mr Whippy's!

There are the delicious Mini Sticks With a ProPoints value of 3 per stick. My favourite of the range.

Covered with silky milk chocolate or rich white chocolate, the sticks are ideal for fulfilling your sweet tooth cravings, without having to then jog the kids home from school to make up for it. I love the white chocolate variety, the ice cream is creamy and just the right sweetness, the white chocolate has a good taste.

At under 100 calories these are great for anyone trying to keep trim, I would have eaten these whilst on Slimming world as they are 5 syns.

Available from Tesco and Sainsbury’s – RRP £2.99

Anybody who loves a Cornetto and feels they are off the menu,again will not have to go without this year. Weight Watchers have a lovely range of both Chocolate and Vanilla or Toffee and Vanilla. I sadly could not find the toffee, but can guarantee the Choc version, the wafer is light, crisp and sweet, the ice cream again very creamy. The chocolate sauce is yummy and I will be buying these as everybody loved them. Its a full sized cone too , yet still only 148 Calories and a ProPoints value of 4 per cone. Another great price of £1.79 for four.

For those wanting a nice dessert, I suggest the Weight Watchers Toffee and Honeycomb sundaes. lovely creamy ice cream, swirls of sweet sticky toffee and a gorgeous crunch of honeycomb. The size is good and its hard to believe this is a dessert for dieters. only 119 calories and a ProPoints value of 3 and cost £1.59 per pack making them perfect to share. Only 119 calories mean you can feel sinful without any sin!
Available from Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s.

Another sweet dessert, are the Weight Watchers Swirl Mini Pots,the perfect midweek mini treat for completing the cleaning, ironing, or even for emptying the dishwasher. 
The flavours are crunchy creamy Chocolate Honeycomb and Toffee or scrumptious Strawberry and Raspberry flavours. I love the lightness of the raspberry pot. Its like one of those little icecream pots you get at the theatre, only there is no mortgage to take out for this one. A pack of four costs £2.10 only available at Morrisons.
The Strawberry Swirl Mini Pot is 84 Calories and a ProPoints value of 2 per 100ml pot.
Raspberry Swirl Mini Pot has only 88 calories and a ProPoints value of 2 per 100ml pot.

If you fancy trying one, Weight watchers have a voucher for 10 of my readers.
Just fill in the rafflecopter.

Win a years supply of Duracell Batteries

This is a very inspiring video. Duracell asked me to share it with my readers and have also offered a really handy prize, a years worth of Duracell batteries* for a reader to power their children's toys!! 


Watch how Luke and Jamie, 2 Boys in a Boat, rowed 3000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean in aid of Breast Cancer Care. In this inspiring feat of mental and physical endurance, the boys show an extraordinary commitment to never giving up – despite meeting sharks, crossing 40ft waves, and narrowly avoiding being crushed by a container ship during their 54-day adventure.

Luke and Jamie, both only 21, earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records in the process. The Duracell Bunny also joined the boys on this epic journey; tied to the mast and hanging on for dear life.

Duracell, the world’s #1 longest lasting battery, sponsored the boys on their epic voyage across the Atlantic. Duracell: The power to go further.

To win answer the question, please add the answer in the Rafflecopter but let me know in comments you have entered and it would be nice to hear your thoughts on the boys amazing feat too, I am amazed they did this personally!

*A year’s supply of Duracell batteries = 8 packs of Duracell Ultra Power AA batteries (4 pack)

Devon Hampers Review

Devon Hampers asked if I would like to take a look at their hampers, and being a real picnic fanatic, happily agreed. Devon Hampers are a family owned and operated business based in Lifton, West Devon and have long been known for the quality of their food and friendly service. 

The hampers can be filled with chocolates, cheese, cider, ales and many other goodies, you can choose from a ready made hamper or design your own.

With the sun making a welcome appearance, thoughts are turning to summer days, trips to the seaside and summer holidays.

We make a real day out and often take our own food to eat. A pretty picnic hamper filled with goodies, makes a day out so much more memorable. 

Chris and I do not get out that often with caring for Granny but having a large garden, we aim to have a few picnics complete with a hamper here, she will love it too.

I was sent an Devon Cream Tea for two, this can be sent boxed, a box with print or for that special treat, a proper picnic basket. The price starts from £11.70 which I find for a special day out is a very good price and actually cheaper than a tea room cream tea. If you send flowers through the post, I think this would may a nice change for the recipient.

Inside the Cream Tea for Two Hamper there are 4 Devon Scone Company scones, lovely plump scones, nice to see they are lightly baked, a tub of Langage Farm Clotted Cream 113g and a jar of The Devon Scone Company Strawberry Jam. 

The scones are light and fluffy, the jam really tasty,like a homemade jar and we loved the thick clotted cream, a perfect treat all the way from Devon.

Just could do with sitting in Dawlish watching the Black swans and polishing off this scrumptious cream tea!

Devon Hampers and I will be back with a lovely giveaway for that special Dad this Fathers Day very soon.

For now have a browse at all the fab gift ideas and treats for you.

M&S Eggsperiment Win a Years Supply of Chocolate

Marks and Spencer's told me about a very ‘eggciting’ opportunity for you. They launched The Eggsperiment – a competition inviting people to customise their Easter eggs. 

The competiton is not on for much longer so if you want to prettify  Preston the Penguin, colour Colin the Caterpillar, or any of the other character eggs, dash over to M+S today.

Grab your eggs, some sweets and you could win a years supply of chocolate.

I was sent Percy Pig and some sweets and decided to give him a 70's feel sort of YMCA Disco Pig complete with my laughable version of a disco glitter ball!! I reckon you could do way better

Aldi Outdoor Living

Aldi goes from strength to strength Aldi’s core philosophy is to offer high quality, brand-like products at everyday low prices that shoppers can trust. 

I shop there when I can, I love looking at the Aldi Specialbuys, we have picked up great cycling accessories four years ago and the quality means we are still using them now. I love the outdoor bargains and like to pop in when I can.

I have reviewed a lot of Aldi's food, but this time I was asked to feature the Outdoor living range that is also part of the Specialbuys this week.

Aldi's sent me the glazed ceramic pots, they are heavy real solid pots, in a sage green and modern black shade. 

I wanted to get them all potted up with shrubs to really showcase them however you may miss the bargains in Aldi this week!!

I am off to buy the gorgeous decorative iron trellis above its an amazing £4.99 with a 3 year warranty too, perfect for some clematis I recently purchased.

For those looking for a garden table and chairs, see below, I am just amazed at the prices.

The outdoor range is now on sale and will not last long. So why not take a look in your local store.

Pop into Aldi from the 13th April 2014 for a whole host of great value outdoor living furniture and accessories to make the most of your garden this summer.

Garden lovers can pick up everything they need including aluminium parasols, garden dining tables and chairs to make the most of the spring and summer sun.
This Aluminium Parasol (£24.99) will provide shelter come rain or shine and with a 16KG Parasol Base (£14.99) to match.

Al-fresco dining needn’t be the sole preserve of those living in the Mediterranean. Aldi’s Aluminium Glass Table (£49.99), matching Aluminium Chairs (£19.99) make an attractive option for those wishing to wine and dine while the sun shines

With a host of affordable options available to spruce up your garden, it won’t just be your green, green grass that’s the talk of the town. Aldi’s Decorative Garden Stake (£2.99), Glazed Ceramic Pot (£6.99), Iron Decorative Trellis (£4.99) and Topiary Ball (£8.99) will add a touch of style at just a snippet of the usual cost. 

Aldi’s Specialbuys Outdoor Living range is in stores nationwide on 13th April but don’t delay, as Specialbuys are only available while stocks last and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
