ESCAPE with a snog

For those of you that think snog is one of the most irritating words in the english slanguage, let me tell you that up until a week ago, I would have put myself forward to be leader of your alliance. However…whilst wondering through Soho during a lunch break, I came across something  that forced me to reconsider my opinion of the word.

Snog… so I learnt, is a new chain of Frozen yoghurt stores. Take my advice : you can not let your snog agitation prevent you from enjoying one of the most delicious and refreshing summer treats that the streets of London have to offer.

For you see…beyond the rubbish name, lies a world of frozen yoghurt…and an innovative modern marketing and branding experience. I had a natural snog which I got with blueberrys and strawberries on top. After one taste it all made sense to me. Snog is a brightly coloured with fun interiors… snog is a delicious frozen yoghurt that’s healthier  than ice cream (organic ingredients and ZERO fat) and snog is a concept that brings modern kitsch to London – in a  Harijuku kind of way. Furthermore….it’s about bloody time that London got some frozen yoghurt…they ‘ve had it in LA for donkeys years. With that all in mind I decided that I really like snog and that I’m gonna snog a lot more should I be around Soho on my lunch break.

ESCAPE with a Ribena Light

The "Rolls Royce," of cordialsIts 14:59.

Too close to lunch break for a break you  might  say?

I say BOO that…..time for a refreshing gulp of Ribena Light. Without any of the added sweetness of its ‘fat,’ dark purple counterpart Ribena Light is potentially the best and most refreshing drink on the planet. Unfortunately it is disappearing from supermarket and newsagent shelves fast which is why I feel people need to be informed of its greatness.

Important things to know about Ribena Light

A carton counts as one of your five a day! Whoop

Cartoned Ribena Light is incomparably better (and cheaper) than the bottled version. It is actually also much better than buying the syrupy stuff…unless you have the midas touch and are able to mix it up to perfection every time you pour.

Put your Ribena Light in the freezer for 20 minutes (45 mid-summer) prior to drinking. This will enable small Ribena crystals to form that will melt in your mouth when you are drinking.

Never try own brand stuff or squash brand variations- chances are it will be sticky, sweet and rank, plus even if it works out ok, it’s NEVER as good as the real deal.

Don’t be fooled by the Blackberry flavour…the packaging is dangerously similar, as is the berry, but blackberrys AREN’T the same as blackcurrents and taste bad when Ribena-d (Take note, the pomegranate and raspberry flavor is surprisingly good)

Ribena Really Light is EXACTLY the same as Ribena Light.

Its now 15:09. A more acceptable time for a break and I’m gonna escape from the office to Sommerfield to indulge.
