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.

We are based in Jacksonville, FL with contributors and distribution internationally. We are seeking sponsors who are passionate about supporting the arts and print media .

Now this is an interesting post, a first for me but that’s good as I want to try and review different areas.

I came across this online magazine by accident and decided to check it out, as I liked how it sounded and also I wanted to see how the online magazine area is and if I liked that concept.

Design & Content

I am not a big reader of books, magazines etc so I decided to sit down and take my time checking it out.

This months magazine covered the following areas : Music, Art and Female Fashion.

A quick skim and I didn’t feel overwhelmed with information, which for me was good as my attention span is not the best 🙂

The first thing I noticed it had a very clean, minimalistic look but at the same time very professional.

I liked the use of language used, and tone, as I found it easy to understand and the use of images….very well edited.

As you can see there is a lot of information, but nothing that will bombard your brain too much plus the photos are nicely situated to break up the article. I found the photos helped to make an impact on the story, and they were really nice to look at.

The fonts used and spacing/layouts are also very easy on the eyes.

Overall

In this months issue several music bands and festivals were written about (Mostly in America), which for me was very good as I am always on the hunt to learn of new bands and styles.

To be honest from start to finish, I found it a very interesting read more so as I was reading about subjects that I wouldn’t normally read about.

This magazine comes in physical and digital format, the one I read was the digital version which is a lot cheaper to buy than the physical…as expected.

Fancy something different to read? then why not give this a shot like I did…I enjoyed the read so I am sure you will to.
