Kandemand (American Candy) Mystery Pack : Review


I had recently seen a lot of sweet boxes coming up on my Instagram, and thought “at some point I should try one and see what they are like” and Kandemand for me kept appearing more than others so I visited their website and this is what happened.

I didn’t know where to start, as in what to buy but I did spot a “Mystery Pack” option at £15 plus £5 for postage so since I couldn’t make my mind up I let Kandemand.

What i got

I had not heard of any of these before, and as you can see this pack was mostly chewy things.

I wont review each sweet as that would be too much, but I will do a wee highlight of my thoughts.

The Sweets

Since I am a big kid I started with the Pop Rocks, come on who doesn’t like these. These were mega sour and very loud but I liked them as reminded me of when I was younger.

The one labeled “Musketeers” reminded me of what we have in the UK a “Milky Way”, and I really like them so this went down a treat.

The Dentyne Fire was an interesting one, it is a Cinnamon flavoured chewing gum with a little spice added to it. At first I was like “hmmm not sure” then after a few more I really like these.

Overall :

As I said I wasnt going to review each item, as that would be too much. This is just a general overview of my order, and what I thought.

I am glad I opted for a mystery pack, as it made me try all new items that I might not have tried before and it was a lot of fun trying and tasting them.

Yup they are all gone, and it only took 3 days….bad I know 🙂

If you want to try something different then check out Kandemand, and do what I did with a mystery pack. The service was very good, the order was sent out fast and what I got was very interesting and new to me.

Tuck Shakk – Taste of India Lunch (Glasgow, West End) : Review


As you previously have seen I was gifted my lunch last time from Tuck Shakk, but this time round we ordered and the theme of this one was Indian.

Todays menu

The food

As you can see from the above photos this was a big lunch, but a very very nice and tasty one.

The flavours were all very nice, and not super spicy it had a nice kick to it.

I really liked today lunch, the veggie biryani for me was my fav which I was shocked as if you know me am not Mr Veggie.

Just like the last time, again after eating all this I felt full but not bloated so I was very happy.

Desert :

Again the guys at Tuck Shakk included this for us….

How nice was that 🙂

This was a very nice ending to our meal, and was very nice.

Overall :

Another nice lunch from the guys at Tuck Shakk, and I really enjoyed it from start to finish.

Doughnut Burger (Luther Burger) : Recipe

Unfortunately at the time of making this the shops near me didn’t have any normal glazed donuts so I just opted for this one instead.

A Luther Burger, or doughnut burger (among several naming variations), is a hamburger or cheeseburger with one or more glazed doughnuts in place of the bun.

YIELD 2 burgers

INGREDIENTS

For The Burger

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 1 Egg

Topping

  • 6 slices quality smokey bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 2 glazed donuts

Extras for Candied Bacon

  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Burger

  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

The Donuts

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 

End Product

I added some cheddar at the bottom just to be different 🙂
  1. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.
  2. Top each burger with bacon and two slices of cheese

Enjoy
