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!!!

Foreplay Crazy Golf (Glasgow) : Review

Foreplay Crazy Golf
124 Portman Street
Glasgow
G41 1EJ

V: 29th September 2019


I am not really Mr sports in any way, I have done Karate and Tennis in the past and been to a few Ice Hockey games and that’s really it for me.

I have never really had any interest in golf, or even crazy golf but I got a wee invite to come along to Foreplay Crazy Golf and see what it was like.

To be honest I really didn’t know what to expect, but was that a good thing? well keep reading.

First Impressions :

On entering I had a look about, and what I saw looked very interesting.

The guys at the desk welcomed me and explained what would be happening today.

I would be getting one round on one course, and one round on the second course.

The guy who was giving us the golf clubs and balls was very funny and informative at the same time, keep a watch out for this guy he will defo put a smile on your face.

Course One :

Well now this is where it got interesting, I have never held a club or swung a club so I didn’t know what to expect from my game today….lets see what happens.

My girlfriend and I went through this course, sometimes needing more than a few attempts at getting it in the hole but we did manage in the end.

I won this round woohoo

Course Two :

This one looked a lot harder, so I was very excited to start.

Yip, this one was much harder and did require both of us to have a lot more attempts on some, but with the practice from course one some were ok and didnt need as many as we both expected.

This was a very fun course, and I would like to say I won again but nope my girlfriend won this one.

Food & Drink:

There is a bar here and also a food area.

The bar serves alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, and from a board that was on display looked like they did very nice cocktails (unfortunately I was driving so couldn’t have one).

The food are was by The Prague Shack and the food displayed on the menu sounded very good. I had to try the burger here, as I love my burgers.

Beef Burger £7 (today £3.50)

This was a really tasty burger, and one I would recommend as I really enjoyed it.

Cost wise, today for £3.50 (I got it half price) it was very good value…normal price at £7 hmmm a little costly but they have rent to pay etc so its just a hmmm for cost.

  • Taste : 5
  • Presentation : 4
  • Value for Money : 3 (just due to the cost but a very nice burger)

Overall :

WOW ok! I was very surprised how much fun I had today, I really didnt expect to enjoy it as much and so much I want to return with some friends.

This was a fun filled little day out, and its fun for all the family.

The little Glasgow touches on the courses were very cool, and I will come back and have another game or two.

Its been a while since my last visit here, but I was in the area and today I visited and wanted to try something different…..to be honest I felt like pancakes and bacon but that didn’t work out….

On entering I sat down and was given the menu, I didn’t see pancakes and bacon so time to choose something else…

The Food…

I decided to order a few things…

Starter

Buffalo Chicken Wings with Chipotle Sauce (Large) £8.95
Spicy buffalo wings with the choice of hot sauce, Jack Daniels glaze, chipotle BBQ sauces

IMG_0595.jpg

Wow this was a good sized portion, and it smelled amazing.

mmmm every chicken wing was very tender and full of flavour, with just a little kick at the end which was perfect for me.

My only issue was some cleaning cloths would have been good to have, but hey a quick lick of the fingers and kinda clean.

Wow firstly this was a really nice taste and secondly it was thick, I was loving this and it could technically be a meal on its own as it was very filling.
