The coffee…

The guys over at Calm sent me a wee email asking if I would like to try some of their CBD infused coffee, I have never had anything infused with CBD (Cannabidiol) so I said yes please as its always fun to try something new.

The Gift

The guys sent me the following :

  • 2 x CBD Infused Cold Brew Coffee (Americano)
  • 2 x CBD Infused Cold Brew Coffee (Oat Milk Caffe Latte)
  • 1 x CBD Ground Coffee

This was loads 🙂 and now it was time to try them.

CBD-Infused Cold Brew Coffee

I decided to start with one of the Cold Brew Coffee’s and take it to work, and try it at my lunch break.

As I said before I have never tried any CBD infused anything, so this would be interesting.

I opened the can, and took a smell wow very nice a strong coffee smell and then I took a sip…

This was very nice, it tasted just like a nice cool refreshing Americano but obviously had the extra CBD benefits. I like a good strong coffee, so this was perfect for me and I enjoyed for the rest of the day.

The next day I took the Latte in to work, and chilled it for lunch.

This again was very nice to, and had a really nice flavour. For me the Americano was better, but I tend to drink my coffee’s black.

Overall I really liked these and they were perfect for on the go, or like me at work.

The Ground Coffee :

As you can see from the photo the front of the bag has little holes, just smelling that area wow the coffee was so so nice and I couldn’t wait to make myself a cup…or two.

I popped open the bag and BANG the smell of this coffee hit me and was amazing! I could see from the bag this was Brazilian coffee, so now I know what it was.

Now for the taste…

So as I said from above I like my coffee black, plus since I was testing this I had to have it as is for a proper review so it was a win win for me.

Again the smell was the first thing to hit me, then the taste and wow I have to say this was a REALLY good coffee I loved its flavour…..I actually had 3 cups that’s how good it was.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the product.

I don’t know what CBD tastes like, but I do know how coffee tastes and this was good coffee. I couldn’t say if I tasted anything different, but for me it was a really nice tasting coffee in all products.

For me the winners were the Americano and the Ground Coffee, and I have been having a cup or two of the Calm Ground Coffee in the morning before going to work.

I would like to say a BIG thank you to Calm Drinks, for sending me the coffee and giving me my first experience of CBD infused coffee.

Popcorn Shed : Gourmet Popcorn Review

W: www.popcornshed.com


Say goodbye to boring, tasteless popcorns.  Our gourmet popcorn tastes better than the competition, is beautifully branded and our pack formats are both unique and eye-catching.

Popcorn Shed is the UK’s first super-premium gourmet popcorn brand.  We incorporate TEXTURE into our popcorn through chunks of nuts, chocolate and dried fruit, in order to maximise the taste of our popcorn and enhance ‘mouth feel’.  Our popcorn is the first UK popcorn brand to be packaged in beautiful popcorn ‘shed’ cartons, each with its own unique personality and theme.  Our shed cartons make fantastic use of colour and have great shelf presence.


The guys over at Popcorn Shed got in touch with me, and asked if I would like to try their product.

I have tried some popcorn products before, but never from Popcorn Shed so I accepted and waited with excitement to try them.

Let the popping begin…

The box was delivered to my work place, and I had to open it right away. WOW!!

Wow thanks guys I really didn’t expect so many 🙂

Ohhh look at the flavours! these sounded so appealing to my mega sweet tooth.

Eating time…

To be honest I really didn’t know what one to start with, so I just grabbed the first bag and started munching 🙂

First pop

This was very good, the salt flavour was very good not over powering just right and super addictive….and was finished very fast.

I could easily see myself snacking on this 🙂

Flavour : 5

on to the next

2nd pop

I am not a Salt & Vinegar crisps or anything sweet person but I thought lets have this one next.

For me this was actually ok, the vinegar taste wasn’t as strong as I expected so it was a good balance for me.

Salt & Vinegar : https://popcornshed.com/products/minipop-salt-vinegar

Flavour : 4

I was instantly intrigued by the “Sweet” so i pop’d it open and started munching.

Ohhh this was my favourite so far, it was the perfect balance of sweet and salty for me and anyone. I was very disapointed when this bag was finished, as I could have easily had another.

Sweet & Salty : https://popcornshed.com/products/minipop-sweet-salty

Flavour : 5

While typing this blog I pop’d the Toffee one open, and started munching and typing.

To tell you the truth I was doing more munching, than blogging and again this was a very nice one and could have easily had another bag.

With some toffee products you get a fake toffee taste from them, or they are overpowering to try and make up for being fake toffee. This for me was very good, a nice taste and not fake and again so mmmm

Toffee : https://popcornshed.com/products/minipop-toffee

Flavour : 5

As soon as I opened this bag the smell of truffle hit me! wow this smelled so good, now it was time to dig in.

This was nice, and I enjoyed it but for me personally I found the truffle taste to linger on throughout the day.

FLAVOUR : 4

Overall

Firstly a BIG thank you to Popcorn Shed for sending me their popcorn to try, I had a fun time munching them all.

Remember the review you just read was 100% honest and not influenced in any way just because I was sent a product to review.

For me I enjoyed all the popcorn I tried, but my least fav was the White Truffle and my favs were the Toffee and the Sweet & Salty.

I have tried some other popcorn brands in the past, and recently and to be honest I found these flavours were more my style due to these being more sweet….these just tickled my taste buds more.

I loved the bright stand out packaging, and the really good and tasty flavours.

As I always say, this review is to my taste so please do try these and others…but if you have a sweet tooth you will really like these.

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
