It's worth noting that they've changed the design of these, and in my opinion have ruined them. Rather than each piece being purely wedge shaped, they've hollowed them out a bit to save chocolate, while making it look the same size. They've reduced the weight from 175g to 157g. So, while this might seem a good deal, be prepared for a little disappointment into the bargain. :(

I agree. The satisfaction has diminished substantially.

On the other hand, this quote from Wikipedia is brilliant:

The current Guinness World Record holder for the fastest time to eat a Terry's Chocolate Orange, Adrian Blake [1], has said that the decision to shrink the chocolate orange would not only harm the experience of enjoying the product, but also make future challenges to his achievement unfair.


​And also moved production from York to Poland as there's no Terry's factory there anymore

snowflake75
didn't know they had a freezer sectiob


​They're lip balms
In case anyone's curious about the flavours, some aren't as obvious as others (from the above reviews):

Starship 4 looks like a rocket pop style popsicle. The lip balm is a very distinct Lip Smacker grape which is fine by me, the more grape they do the better

Feast looks like a chocolate lover’s dream on a stick. :) Bonne Bell always does well with chocolate flavors!

Twister is my favorite from the set! It’s described as “pineapple ice cream and lemon-lime flavoured fruit ice on the outside and strawberry on the inside.”
I definitely pick up on these flavors, especially a creamy pineapple-strawberry and lime.

Strawberry Split is the classic strawberry, while Funny Feet is a creamier strawberry vanilla

Mini Milk trio (are) in their respective flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla.


About the Calippos:
The flavors seem to be slightly enhanced versions of their current Bonne Bell Lip Smacker counterparts: Lemon Lime is more lemon-y than Sprite, Strawberry Tropical is more strawberry-y than Tropical Punch, and Orange has a stronger citrus scent than Orange Juice.
good find op, heat added

Freezing milk does not extend use by date. If milk was frozen 3 days before use by ... it means is valid 3 days after defrost( if defrosted in room temperature probably less) .



Eeeeer that's the point, you 'freeze' the date, then later when you need milk you defrost and use. It's not some kind of witchcraft we should be burning people for.

you are confusing extending use by date with SUSPENDING the use by date by freezing. If I buy milk Today with a use by date of 4th September for example. I can freeze it for 6 weeks then use it as normal for the actual days that I would have had if used from date of purchase. i.e. 6 weeks later in october therefore extending the use by date. Been doing it for years. that's the whole point of owning a large freezer and bulk buying.

yeah those poor farmers with their thousands in subsidies, the poor little mites.
why are they getting subsidies? its because there getting less back than it costs to produce,thank the EU for that.

nope, most of the subsidies are for taking care of the land and hedge rows and has very little to do with the price they get for the milk.
Yes £1.20 is good but it was 2 for £1 last week or so lol, so when you think of it that way they have boosted the price by 20%

Doesn't actually taste like coffee though.
The daughter of friends of ours brought her new boyfriend home to meet her parents. She asked her dad to make the boyfriend a cup of coffee. The family aren't coffee drinkers, but keep a jar handy in case of emergencies. So off her dad went to the kitchen, and returned some minutes later with the coffee. So while the boyfriend was drinking his coffee, very slowly by all accounts, he kept making a face each time he took a sip. After about 10 minutes or so her dad plucked up the courage to ask if there was anything wrong with the coffee, thinking the milk might be off or the lad needed sugar, or whatever. So right enough, the boyfriend said the coffee tasted funny. So the dad relieved him of the coffee and went back to the kitchen to see what the problem might be. And, lo and behold, there was the jar of Bisto Gravy Granuals sitting on the worktop.

Very Funny!;)

For comparison...
Delonghi Bean to cup machine + Lavazza Creme e Aroma beans + 150ml of milk in 250ml pyrex jug for 60 seconds in microwave poured into Lifeventure mug/flask +
double shot of coffee in the same jug (~40 seconds) then poured into aforementioned mug/flask + sprinkle of chocolate = 300ml of top notch coffee and one very happy commuter.
The Delonghi gets cleaned once a week (5 minutes on a Sunday) and I buy one 1 Kg bag of beans from Amazon on subscribe and save for under £10 per month. I reckon I get around 40-50 double shots per 1Kg bag (I grind some coffee to take to work for use in an Aeropress).
Don't you find that the espresso is a bit on the cool side when drawn? A common criticism of bean-to-cup machines and what persuaded me to go for the Gaggia instead.

I have heard of that complaint, however, I rarely drink neat espresso, so it's not been a major concern for me.

In reality I do freeze rarely. Interested to know why the whole should be not



Because the cream at the top separates very easily and is yuk to drink, whilst the rest of the milk is mainly water a quick movement of the bottle quickly mixes any separation back together.

I like all the peoples comments for justifying buying at this price, I find my semi-skimmed milk from Lidl tastes just as good on my cornflakes, Lidl of course, as any other milk, and yes I have tried Cravendale when it's the only milk left on the shelf because of the price? maybe. Not a lot of people seem to want to pay more than necessary for their milk, is that why the price of milk action seems to have died off?

This 'deal' is actually illegal - first-stage infant formula should not be reduced or advertised. I'm not sure how the law stands - but I do believe HUKD may have to remove this as well.

Furthermore, according to Which? all standard formula is pretty much the same, as "The ingredients in infant formula are strictly controlled under The Infant Formula and Follow-on Formula (England) Regulations 2007". There is no research suggesting one standard formula improves reflux over another, either - only anecdotal reports. Breastmilk decreases the chance of an infant having reflux though.

It makes no sense that so many people come to this site looking for bargains and then whine that they are to cheap.
If farmers don't like their choice of job, moaning about how hard done by they are will not help. Make another choice just like every other working person can.
Heat added for a great deal.

My son in law is a dairy farmer, he has just had his payment reduced to 17p a litre for quotored milk and 5p for unquoterd it's way below cost, he can't sell the herd as he will get nothing for it, so the only way to continue is to keep the sheep and use them to subsidise the dairy side. He took £1000.00 out of the business last year, my daughter works full time and subsidises the family.

The guy who runs the business collecting the milk and distributing it to the supermarkets was recently heard saying he has never had it so good, he claimed to be making millions off the back off paying so little to the farmers. And before you ask, my son in law has looked at supplying other firms, but they pay less for new contracts.

So for all of you paying a pittance for milk enjoy it while you can, it won't last forever, dairy farmers will disappear.


​its really sad what's happening and most people only care for the tag price to save pennies and don't bother about the quality of what they drink and eat...if we continue like that local farmers will disappear and who knows what sort of c*** will bring on our table to feed our kids...I hope more people become aware and support the farmers locally..
The local supermarket is often the only real option for many.people. Consumers are driven by cost, often by necessity. The supermarkets have a mass market and can, and do ruthlessly exploit that power. I read recently about parsnip farmers who have up to 40% of their crop refused by the supermarkets because of ' cosmetic imperfections'. The supermarkets in turn blame the consumer for wanting only straight unblemished veg. At the end of the day it's the producer that loses out.

My son in law is a dairy farmer, he has just had his payment reduced to 17p a litre for quotored milk and 5p for unquoterd it's way below cost, he can't sell the herd as he will get nothing for it, so the only way to continue is to keep the sheep and use them to subsidise the dairy side. He took £1000.00 out of the business last year, my daughter works full time and subsidises the family.
The guy who runs the business collecting the milk and distributing it to the supermarkets was recently heard saying he has never had it so good, he claimed to be making millions off the back off paying so little to the farmers. And before you ask, my son in law has looked at supplying other firms, but they pay less for new contracts.
So for all of you paying a pittance for milk enjoy it while you can, it won't last forever, dairy farmers will disappear.

​Unfortunately there aren't many customers which care about the farmers and the quality of milk. For them it's cheap produce > Ethics. They'll wake up when capitalism collapses. Or maybe not.

Out of interest. What can a consumer do to increase farmers profit selling milk?


​Pay more for milk from local dairy farms which distribute themselves (e.g. Our Cow Molly in Sheffield) :)

I regularly buy these 3 for £3, if not in Tesco then in Waitrose when on offer. I just don't know what are they good for. But I'm just a sucker who follows the latest trends...
They're great if you don't want milk :-) Some people are allergic/vegan and can't have milk.
True, but sadly they are no way as nutritious as normal milk. These literally have no proteins or calciums (other than some added calcium) . I think they are really over priced at £1.80 or even £1.
I use them as I am vegan.
Normal milk isn't particularly nutritious, you use up more calcium absorbing the calcium in milk, than you benefit from it, according to research. The benefits sold to us, the consumer, is mainly marketing from the dairy industry.
Which research is this? Why do dieticians and the NHS recommend cow or soya milk as a source of calcium if we actually lose calcium?
http://saveourbones.com/osteoporosis-milk-myth/

While this isn't a scientific research website, it is supported by scientific research, and a simple look on the internet will back up the claims. I've never met a dietitian or NHS staff member who recommended cows milk to increase calcium levels, but it may be something to do with the amount of calcium in milk, without the information of how little we absorb it being offered into the equation. We are taught from a young age that dairy is a requirement food group, which is needed, in order to maintain a healthy body. It is simply not true, it is an invention by the food industry, as we are the only mammal who continues to drink milk, let along from another species, once fully grown. It is baby cow growth hormone; very good at making a small calf into a huge cow, in a matter of months, not so good for anything else.

Perhaps true in your area, but certainly not in mine - I shop several times a week in both a small convenience coop and a larger superstore as well, and the clearance items in the small store are almost always full price in the larger store - the store managers have told me that there are at least 2 structures within the chain, each run by a different team, which explains why an item reduced from a tenner down to a couple of pounds in the smaller store is not just transferred on to the stock at the larger store in order to get more money for the group as a whole.
This has been the case for the previous few years at least.

Always worth a look though - my local smaller coop has a few baby food items at clearance prices just now, so perhaps some stores are having a change in stock.
A larger store near me doesn't get the same clearance items, so different sized stores as well as different areas might have very different promotions - with the coop you never know what to expect, good or bad.

Duchy Originals semi-skimmed from Waitrose is the best I have had out of a supermarket.
Have bought Waitrose milk before, but I can't help but feel it doesn't stay fresh for as long as it should. It might be because of the higher quality of milk.
Always felt Asda milk lasts longest.

Make sure you get the unhomogenised version. It tastes nicer and lasts longer. When it passes its use by date it just begins to sour but is still drinkable. Homogenised milk goes rancid and is unpaletable pretty much the day it says on the carton.

Whilst we all want to save money, which is why we look at this site, every time I see things like milk reduced to a really low price, I wonder a) how much money the farmer gets (without government subsidies) b) if costs were cut regarding the welfare of the animals in order to get prices lower.
You cannot keep squeezing prices lower and lower then expect all the costs like wages, animal feed, veterinary bills etc to also get lower - vets won't take a pay cut, so the savings are probably being made with farmworker's salaries/living conditions, and also the animal's welfare.
I don't go along with the tree-hugging veggie stuff, but now and then we ought to think about more than just saving a few pence.
yet to see a poor farmer
​really, you do a lot of the tax returns for these farmers then
moved over to organic ,pay few pence more, cows not fed hormones etc and good 4 u ,
poor cow
Common organic misconceptions. No hormones are fed to cows and there is no significant benefits nutritionally or in terms of health.
Milk from grass fed cow is far more superior to grain fed cows. It has a higher omega 3 to 6 ratio and contains more vitamin k2 (which if you don't have enough can cause calcium problems). There is also the fact that unpasteurised milk is healthier than pastuerised, as the heat destroys the beneficial enzymes and probiotics. For it to be unpastuerised, of course you need the animal to be healthy, well and clean.
Claiming that unpasteurised milk is healthier is a dangerous lie. The CDC in America has a whole site dedicated to its dangers. There is also no less 'healthiness' from it being pasteurised, only a taste difference. learn the facts about it before spreading dangerous incorrect opinions
I could say the same thing about yourself, to learn the facts. So when you were breast fed as a child, was the milk pasterusied? If your counter argument is going to be because thats an animal, well if there kept healthy and clean then the milk is of good quality.
When pasteurised, milk loses all the beneficial enzymes and also the wulzen factor. I myself don't drink much milk, but I am getting into the consuming raw grass fed butter and unpasteurised cheese (you can buy from lidl, waitrose etc). I have had unpasterusied raw milk and it tastes much better.
Using the CDC as a source is misleading, as the CDC is corrupted due to rich men having a hand in things, like pharma companies and monsanto etc. If you look into lobbyists in america you will know what i mean. Check these links:http://www.westonaprice.org/action-alerts/new-studies-confirm-raw-milk-a-low-risk-foodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jnkNhZelNY

It's very simple I think. Cows have a crap quite randomly and it sprays everywhere, hitting their udders. The bacteria in their faeces gets into the milk, it's inevitable this will happen although can be controlled somewhat. That bacteria will make you ill so it's best to pasturise the milk just to be sure. I have drunk both kinds of milk by the way as I used to live next to a farm and have seen the process. Then there's puss particles which you'll find in a lot of milk in varying quantities. Well puss are white blood cells, basically the cows body is trying to kill the bacteria that's in the milk.

As for cheese, cheese can be very dangerous to pregnant mothers for example if they get unlucky as it can harbour listeria. Serious **** as that can cause a mother to oose her baby.

By the way, even if pasteurisation lowered the nutritional value of the milk somewhat, although that's debatable, you can have a perfectly healthy diet without drinking cows milk

If my mum lived naked in a field, in the rain, getting mud all over her breasts, and not washing, then someone milked her swollen chest, ran it through a big processing machine exposed to the air in various parts of the process, mixed with lots of other women's breast milk in similar situations, and then transported across the country and bottled, you would have a comparison, and I sure as hell would want that milk pasteurised. Luckily however, my mum wore clothes, and occasionally washed, and put her clean breast directly into my mouth, and when drinking from a bottle they would have used Milton or similar to sterilise the bottles. I'm also pretty sure my mum wasn't prone to parasites.
Not to go into the specifics of different bacteria that would be living in animals harmlessly but would not be harmless to humans etc etc

And if you followed my link you'd see that it doesn't lose health proprieties. The 'wulzen factor' and taste would be the only changes, and the risks far outweigh that slight change that can be compensated elsewhere

Life expectancy is a statistical measure of the average time an organism is expected to live, based on the year of their birth, their current age and other demographic factors including sex. The most commonly used measure of life expectancy is at birth (LEB), which can be defined in two ways: while cohort LEB is the mean length of life of an actual birth cohort (all individuals born a given year) and can be computed only for cohorts that were born many decades ago, so that all their members died, period LEB is the mean length of life of a hypothetical cohort assumed to be exposed since birth until death of all their members to the mortality rates observed at a given year.[1]
National LEB figures reported by statistical national agencies and international organizations are indeed estimates of period LEB. In the Bronze and Iron Age LEB was 26 years; the 2010 world LEB was 67.2. For recent years in Swaziland LEB is about 49 years while in Japan is about 83 years. The combination of high infant mortality and deaths in young adulthood from accidents, epidemics, plagues, wars, and childbirth, particularly before modern medicine was widely available, significantly lowers LEB. But for those who survive early hazards, a life expectancy of sixty or seventy would not be uncommon. For example, a society with a LEB of 40 may have few people dying at age 40: most will die before 30 years of age or very few after 55. In populations with high infant mortality rates, LEB is highly sensitive to the rate of death in the first few years of life. Because of this sensitivity to infant mortality, LEB can be subjected to gross misinterpretation, leading one to believe that a population with a low LEB will necessarily have a small proportion of older people.[2] For example, in a hypothetical stationary population in which half the population dies before the age of five, but everybody else dies at exactly 70 years old, LEB will be about 36 years, while about 25% of the population will be between the ages of 50 and 70. Another measure, such as life expectancy at age 5 (e5), can be used to exclude the effect of infant mortality to provide a simple measure of overall mortality rates other than in early childhood—in the hypothetical population above, life expectancy at age 5 would be another 65 years. Aggregate population measures, such as the proportion of the population in various age groups, should also be used alongside individual-based measures like formal life expectancy when analyzing population structure and dynamics.
to quote your bolded area "For example, a society with a LEB of 40 may have few people dying at age 40: most will die before 30 years of age or very few after 55." which proves that your "lets take only over 65 or 55" guesstimates as useless as I said
Yeah just completely ignore the rest of it. I brought some facts into this conversation as opposed to you telling me I'm wrong with absolutely no evidence to back it up. Life expectancy at 65 is actually a very important measure for social researchers and statisticians, it's used by the ONS for example.http://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/lifeexpectancies/bulletins/lifeexpectancyatbirthandatage65bylocalareasinenglandandwales/2014-11-19
So not 'guesstimates' but well established and useful metrics.
No I read the rest, and that gave an extreme example to show the statistical difficulties, it didn't say "this is how it actually is". The life expectancy at 65 that you talk about is only applicable now that we have such long life expectancies, not for our ancestors when very few could ever hope to reach that age, especially in poorer communities
What period are you talking about. There were plenty of people living beyond 65 in the 19th century for example, you only have to do a bit of family history to realise that but here's some interesting reading for you.
Life expectancy rose further in Britain in the late 19th century. By 1900 in Britain it was about 47 for a man and about 50 for a woman. (That does not mean of course that people dropped dead in their late forties. The figures are skewed because death in childhood was still common in the early 20th century. That affected the average figure.) During the late 19th century living standards rose substantially and most people were better nourished. There were also huge improvements in public health with sewers being dug under cities and clean water supplies created.
Things continued to improve in Britain in the early 20th century. In particular death in childhood became far less common and by the early 1930s life expectancy for a man at birth was about 60. By the 1950s it had risen to about 65. Things improved more slowly in the late 20th century but by 1971 life expectancy for a man in Britain was 68. For a woman it was 72. In 2015 life expectancy was 79 for a man in the UK and 83 for a woman.
Life Expectancy before the Industrial Revolution
We do not know exactly what average life expectancy at birth was in the past (before the 19th century we can only give rough estimates). However historians think it was about 35 years in the Middle Ages or the 16th Century. (So 50% of the people born reached that age). However that does not mean that people dropped dead when they reached 35! Average life expectancy at birth was around 35 but a great many of the people born died in childhood. We don't know exactly what percentage died but if we say about 25% of people died before they were 5 years old we are probably not wide of the mark. Perhaps as many as 40% died before they reached adulthood. However if you could survive childhood and your teenage years you had a good chance of living to your 50s or your early 60s and even in the Middle Ages in Western Europe there were some people who lived to 70 or 80.

Claiming that unpasteurised milk is healthier is a dangerous lie. The CDC in America has a whole site dedicated to its dangers. There is also no less 'healthiness' from it being pasteurised, only a taste difference. learn the facts about it before spreading dangerous incorrect opinions
I could say the same thing about yourself, to learn the facts. So when you were breast fed as a child, was the milk pasterusied? If your counter argument is going to be because thats an animal, well if there kept healthy and clean then the milk is of good quality.

When pasteurised, milk loses all the beneficial enzymes and also the wulzen factor. I myself don't drink much milk, but I am getting into the consuming raw grass fed butter and unpasteurised cheese (you can buy from lidl, waitrose etc). I have had unpasterusied raw milk and it tastes much better.

Using the CDC as a source is misleading, as the CDC is corrupted due to rich men having a hand in things, like pharma companies and monsanto etc. If you look into lobbyists in america you will know what i mean. Check these links:

You say the CDC is corrupt but trust the WAPF and Mercola?! Please don't tell me your against vaccines or believe they're very dangerous too. Please don't believe everything you read on the Internet that conforms to your naturalistic preferences and is anti-Big Everything.
