Novembers Top Items To Pick Up In The Supermarket!

Mr Muscle Touch Up Cleaner

Creatively packaged in a bottle designed to stay out near the action where you need it most – the kitchen and the bathroom – Mr Muscle® Touch-Up Cleaner helps quickly clean those little messes so they don’t become bigger chores. 

Mr Muscle® Touch-Up Cleaner offers a fast and convenient solution to kill 99.99% of bacteria and clean the most frequently used surfaces in your home. 

The inventive new design makes it easy to clean surfaces and kill bacteria; simply push down on the pump to apply the formula onto a cleaning material such as a paper towel, cleaning cloth or sponge. Then, just wipe the surface clean and you’re done!

I love having these on hand - especially in the bathroom!!! Does anybody else notice that fibres from towels seem to get everywhere, every day?!

Available from supermarkets nationwide

Beanies Coffee

Beanies is a flavoured coffee made using advanced flavouring systems to mix high quality roast coffee and fantastic, natural flavours.  There are 36 flavours so there is sure to be something to suit every taste!  Even better there's less than 2 calories per serving so a nice low cal treat!  
I tried:

French Vanilla Flavour
Irish Cream Flavour

Now I have to be honest, I personally found the vanilla flavour too strong for my tastes - if you like a very strong flavour then you'll be impressed but I prefer a more delicate taste. 

I did enjoy the Irish cream though! 

Persil Non-Bio Small & Mighty

Persil non-bio small & mighty has always been proud to help you get the best results from your wash. With the new look pack the new formula, bottle design and clever Stain Eraser Ball it is more effective than ever before. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1.       New formula: the new formulation gives better all-round cleaning, particularly of oily stains while still leaving clothes kind to sensitive skin
2.       The new multifunctional bottle design: this has an easy-open flip top and spout for mess-free pouring
3.       Stain Eraser Ball: at the heart of the bottle sits its secret weapon. Not only is it perfect for measuring exact dosage but it also lets you pre-treat tough stains directly using the Stain Eraser Ball’s dimpled surface. Say goodbye to separate pre-treaters – simply ‘Pop, Pour, Rub’: ‘Pop’ the Stain Eraser Ball out of the bottle, ‘Pour’ the liquid detergent directly on to the stain and ‘Rub’ the stain with the Eraser Ball’s dimpled surface, before your main wash.
There are certain products that I prefer to stick to a favourite brand of, and washing detergent is one of them! Persil has always been my brand of choice, and when it comes to washing Tyne's clothes I know I'm safe with their non-bio!
I love the added stain eraser ball as it makes getting all those nasty orange stains out of his bibs so much easier! I'm a big fan of this!
The 15 wash bottle is priced at around £4.69, and is available from major retailers nationwide.

Jarlsberg Light

Norway’s favourite cheese, Jarlsberg, now comes in a lower fat variety called Jarlsberg Lite.

Fans of this holey cheese will be pleasantly surprised to find it has retained its delicious, nutty and sweet taste but are in for a treat as Jarlsberg Lite has only 16% fat.

Jarlsberg Lite is a perfect cheese to cook with too as it melts readily without becoming messy or stringy, so whilst you’re on a diet, you can still have one of the world’s best toasties, without any of the associated guilt.

Available in handy slices, the 140g packet of Jarlsberg Lite is priced at £1.79 and is available nationwide in selected Waitrose and Sainsbury’s Local stores.

Stagg Chilli Pots

Being ‘chili’ this winter now has a whole different meaning, as authentic American chili company, STAGG® Chili, launches a range of hearty, convenient ready meals, packed full of high quality ingredients.

Satisfying and delicious, STAGG® Chili Meals can be heated in the microwave or on the hob in minutes.

With a blend of delicious beef and secret spice mix, the Classic Chili con Carne variety is packed full of British beef and quality kidney and pinto beans to give you that legendary STAGG® Chili taste experience.

If you’re feeling brave, the Dynamite variety certainly lives up to its name, with fiery jalapenos and chili powder, while the Pub Style flavour gives any gourmet pub grub a run for its money.

With less than 1% fat per pot, the Vegetable Meal is perfect for vegetarians and health conscious eaters. Packed full of tomatoes, green beans, peas, onions, peppers and other wholesome ingredients, it also contains two of your five-a-day.

STAGG® Chili Meals are now available in a 370g snack pot from Tesco and Asda with an RRP of £1.99 each. It’s around the same price as a sandwich but there’s a whole lot more to enjoy.
