Sensible Portions. BBQ Garden Veggie Chips Review.

I had reviewed veggie chips of this brand once before (search on my blog for sensible portions) and I thought I'd do another one.

To be honest I didn't really like the bbq flavour in this chip it's too sweet and the flavour wasn't for me, it's not even close to as good as the sour cream and onion one by this brand, I rate it 2.5/5.

Mr. Sub. Brisket Sub Review.

This is a limited time brisket sub from Mr. Sub, I thought I would try it for review while it's still on the menu.

I ordered the brisket on white bun with onions, green peppers and mayo. I liked the brisket more so on it's own than in the sandwich but it was good though overall and I'd get it again if I could (maybe minus the onions cause I don't love red onions), I rate it 3.5/5.

Update: I have failed to take a photo of the sub open and show a better look at the brisket, sorry...I'm no professional haha.

Goldfish Pretzels.

I don't like the cheese Goldfish but I do like pretzels and thought I'd try these.

To be honest they aren't bad but they are awfully dry and bready, more so than the average pretzel, I'm not sure I'd get them again, they don't beat other brands; I rate them 3/5.

Edit: I realized now they are pretzel CRACKERS, dumb of myself not to notice that now.

Apple 2nd Generation Airpods Review.

I got the 2nd generation Apple airpods and this is my review.

I was unable to connect them to my Windows 10 computer despite step by step instruction I found online (though you may have better luck with it, I don't need them for my pc really so it doesn't affect me much.)

BUT I was able to connect them to my Iphone with ease. To connect the airpods to the Iphone: 1. Turn on bluetooth on your Iphone 2. open the case, 3. go to the home screen. 4. open the case (with your airpods inside) 5. hold the case next to your iphone and a setup window appears on your Iphone 6. Tap Connect. (You can also follow these steps to check battery life of the case and the airpods themselves.)

You can go into settings on your Iphone, then go into bluetooth, click the little i icon besides your airpods and there you have the ability to pick what double tapping each airpod does.

I find they fit in the ear really well and they are exactly what I need for my ears as my ears are picky about headphones/earbuds. They feel well weighted compared to the corded earbuds from Apple and you can really tell you're wearing them.

The audio quality is great and works well with Spotify or Siri. You can use Siri as you normally would and you can use your Iphone to control music volume.

For those who don't know you put these in the case to wirelessly charge them BUT you have to plug in the case to charge it. The airpods take 30 minutes to completely charge from dead. The charging case and dead airpods take two hours to fully charge.

One cool feature you can actually track the location of your airpods by connecting it through the icloud website or through the "find Iphone" app.

Overall, I am very happy with them and they will be great for on the run or while moving as to not snag any annoying cords.

Update: I have found they are always charging when in the case and that's a stupid feature, they should only charge when dead, it's not good for the battery in the long run.
