JÄGERMEISTER UK UNVEIL ‘JÄGERMEISTER COLD BREW COFFEE’
A perfect fusion of Jägermeister, Cold Brew Coffee and Cacao


I was invited to visit the Tiki Bar in Glasgow, for the Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee event which I was very excited to attend. One I love wee events and two I love coffee so this sounded interesting.

The inventive liqueur sees the classic Jägermeister recipe of 56 herbs and spices expertly fused with cold-brewed Arabica coffee and just a hint of cacao to create a new Jägermeister shot experience, with a barista touch.

I have never been to the Tiki Bar, but its always been on my list, so tonight was going to be a great night for many new things.

On entering I could see how funky this place was, plus lots of Jägermeister goodies and promo materiel this looked like it was going to be a fun event.

I was welcomed and offered a little taster, and this was an interesting taster. I could have a shot of Cold Brew, or a small ice cream cone with the shot….it was a hard decision so I went for both.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMM I loved this, it tasted like Jägermeister but MUCH BETTER….well for me as I have a sweet tooth and like coffee.

This for me was a perfect shot, it was amazing and I couldn’t wait to try more tonight.

I spotted a little list of cocktails that were being made tonight, that included Jägermeister’s new Cold Brew drink and they all sounded good…..which means I had to try them all.

I got talking to someone that worked at Jägermeister, he welcomed me and recommended that tonight I had to try the Espresso Martini.

This was a great recommendation as one of my favourite cocktails is an Espresso Martini…..now it was time to taste how it was with Cold Brew.

Jägermeister’s Cold Brew Coffee, Salted Caramel, Espresso, Vanilla

Ohhh now this was different but in a good way, it tasted like a normal Espresso Martini but sweeter and the salted caramel just rounded it off.

I don’t know if these cocktails were just for tonight, or will continue to be served but tonight the first for us was free but had a normal price of £6 which is a good price.

I loved this and could easily have more, but tonight there were others to try…

There were several cocktails available tonight but the Espresso Martini and the following two were my favourites.

Bounty Hunter
(Coconut-Washed Jägermeister’s Manifest, Honey and Chocolate Bitters)

This was very nice and had a good strong Bounty flavour, with a nice hint of the Jägermeister flavour coming through. This is another one I would recommend.

Gecko Club
(Jägermeister’s Cold Brew Coffee, Orgeat, Lime, Aromatic Bitters)

OH now this was different, the first flavour was the Cold Brew then it finished on a subtle Lime flavour which made it refreshing. Another one for you to try when visiting here or making it at home.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Jägermeister for the invite tonight, and for the amazing night I enjoyed it from start to finish.

For me this was a really nice drink, and one I have already got myself a bottle at home to enjoy 🙂

I will either be going back to try more Cold Brew cocktails, or buying Cold Brew to make the Espresso Martini at home 🙂

Jägermeister’s Cold Brew will be available NOW in Morrisons and selected off-licenses NOW!!! and that it would work as a great Christmas gift.

I highly recommend this if you have a sweet tooth and like coffee.

Thanks Tiki Bar & Jägermeister 🙂

HECK Chickfurter & Guy Porks: Product Review

www.heckfood.co.uk

And at HECK we do things differently.

Being small and independent means we can do things our way. Such as making our burgers and sausages in small batches for better flavour, using the finest ingredients and pulling out all the stops to bring farmers’ market quality to your supermarket shelf.

In addition to our meat range, we also offer veggie products too! Many of these are approved by the official Vegetarian Society and registered with the Vegan Society, just look out for the logos which you can find on individual products. If you already love our original ranges, why not try out our delicious meat-free range packed with delicious super-food veg.

Yes, we’re uncompromising, but HECK, that’s how we make damn good sausages.


The guys over at Heckfoods were nice enough to send me two of their products to try, and I couldnt wait to try them.

The two products were ChickFurter and

Taste Time : ChickFurter (4pk)

It’s a ‘furst’ of its kind and we aren’t ashamed of the puns! Find the NEW and exclusive to Morrisons HECK Chickfurter in stores now! Exclusively in Morrisons’ stores right now is the HECK ChickFurter. But it’s a furter with a difference…

As anyone in the sausage game will be able to tell you, a traditional furter is made with mechanically recovered meat. Ew!

We didn’t like the sound of that, and we know our HECK fans wouldn’t like the sound of that either, so in a ‘furst of its kind’ (there we go again with the puns) we’ve made a furter with 97% British chicken. Only the best for our fans.

97% chicken sausages with a smokey flavour

I was a little hesitant with this one, as a chicken hotdog? really? could this work and would it taste good?….well I had to find out.

I started to cook them and went to watch TV while the magic happened.

While sitting I started to smell them and the smell was just like a hotdog, I waited till ready and tasted.

The outside texture was maybe just a little tougher than your traditional hotdog, but the texture when biting it was just like one.

I really enjoyed these, and actually preferred the taste of these to normal hotdogs. I would like to have these again, and try some funky hotdog combos and see how it compaires.

  • Texture : 4.5
  • Taste : 4

TASTE TIME : Guy Porks(6PK)

Pork and Apple sausages with a hint of black treacle

The sound of these sounded very good, and taste and texture I really didn’t know what to expect, but I couldn’t wait to start cooking them and try them.

I started cooking and waited…

While waiting the smell from these was so good, my mouth started to water.

As you can see from the photo above, they looked really good…now time to taste.

The texture reminded me of a links sausage, but the flavours were much much better. I enjoyed every single mouthful, and finished them all.

WOW I LOVED!!!! these and could easily have these time and time again.

  • Texture : 5
  • Taste : 5

Overall :

Firstly a big thanks to the guys over at HECK, I really enjoyed what you sent me and will aim to try more of your products as they were very tasty.

Both products were very different so I cant do a comparision, but both products I would purchase and have again.

My favourite out the two has to be the Guy Porks, for me this was perfect tender, full of flavour and I enjoyed it very very much.

Check these guys out!!!

Upstreet Ping Pong Set : Product Review

The guys over at Upstreet asked me if I would like to try their product, and I said yes as its always very cool to test products and try new things.

It arrived at my work and I couldnt wait to open it, but I was very professional and opened it when I got home.

Amazon UK Link £17.95 : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06Y3HP393/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Packaging & Contents :

As you can see you get 4 paddles, and a good amount of balls.

The packaging I thought was very good, as you get to see exactly what you get and what it is.

Quality of Build :

Let’s start with the balls, they are just your standard quality ping pong balls (to me any way) with the branding.

Now to the paddles, this is where I was very impressed! Firstly I will start by saying I don’t really play this game very often, I have done in the past so thats what I am comparing it to.

The quality was very good, the textures etc really good and the branding was perfect not too big and not too small. The rubber on the paddle felt very good quality, and gave a good bounce when the ball hit it.

Overall :

After an hour, maybe two hours of playing this I had a great time.

This is a great product to amuse anyone, family, friends etc its also a very healthy option to spend your time playing indoors or outside.

You could play this indoors, outdoors, take on holiday, camping etc and great fun for all the family.

Rating : 5/5
