Peter's Seriously Tasty Chicken Tika Slice - Ready to Go

Well, its another review and chicken slices are a favourite of mine. So when I saw a new one which is made by a familiar firm, I decided to try it for lunch. Enjoy the rushed review:

The Slice

Its a nice bold design with black, white and purple to represent the bold and colour of india as usual. But hey its good and it can make it easier to spot in shelves and fridges. 

The front of the slice 

The back of the slice

Now as a slice, it looks as normal as it can be, its not too light but yet it's not burnt to a crisp either, but it wasn't in any cardboard slice which is a unique different compared with other slices but Peters have done this on the heinz slices before which is probably cutting down on the plastics that is the reason, but it is one nice cold slice to look at

The slice itself 

Lets Taste and Conclusion

Its got a nice flavour as i took a bite out of it, the chicken is chunky and the sauce is light and very much like the homepride sauce, but it does show the tastiness of it without the hassle of being too ful and having to COOK it to eat it, it also wasn't leaking out of the side like some slices do. But it was so good, especially with an apple juice after. But its one of those meals i do like.

All in all, this is something somewhat worth it for a quick meal, but its something better.

omracer's Rating: 8/10

The Good:

  • Reasonable Value
  • Nice tasty chicken
  • Nice sauce,
  • Not leaking out of the pastry
  • in shops that are not supermarkets
  • Not much waste from it
  • Not too filling

The Bad: 

  • The appearance inside might put some people off
  • Some people think this is cheap food and won't touch it yet they feel skint when they are hungry
That's about it, 2 reviews done in a week, that's not bad going at all to be fair. More reviews might come soon. 


Mayhem Funtech GPS Cable Micro

This review came about at the end of the time I was stood up from my 5th Date. Now Menkind I was in there to look at beer bongs for funnel feeding of all things but I found this instead and decided it was ideal for me to try out for a Reduced Price tag of £4.97. But this is a hard cable to get since not even Amazon has it.

The Packaging.

It's a nice standard cable packaging size, with the clear text in red on a silver/white background and big simple words to add the attention to it. The sides of the box say the length of the cable which is only 1m and also shows the icon for the iPark app its supposed to work with.

The back of the GPS Cable

AS we unpack it, there isn't much to go by, like not even and INSTRUCTION MANUAL, just the background of the map of some city and also the plastic the cable was placed in, which is okay but some people really would struggle to use this, it slightly implied you need to connect this to the car or some sort of power to make it work. But it does look like it should though, the cable is a reversible cable which is useful but still nothing makes it easier since that can break easily.

The connector is reversible

Its a short cable

How it plugs into the Phone

A Setup

Well, I got the app from the playstore, its a free app and a 2.8 rating so we know people say its bad from the get-go. The screenshots are not that accurate either minus one. 

The app on the playstore

I installed it no problem and it was interesting since it needed access to my location (which is on battery saving aka network only and that did NOT class as location)  so it sort of avoided the point of using the GPS from the actual CABLE in the case of my phone. But hey, it would of been useful on a phone i had many years ago.. But well things go as they are. 

Bluetooth being paired but it never got paired actually

The app only does this. Not even the share works.

Then it managed to CRASH when I clicked on share like really it just crashed, which is typical. So maybe I wasn't going to have luck with this. Glass didn't find it in settings either.  

The Test. 

Well, I fitted it to a bike using a solar powerbank and well it didn't work. Mi fit was using the GPS of the phone. So cycling to my client in brentor was going to be not using it. But then I had to cycle somewhere different and that did seem like it was working at first.

Another view. 
So I then cycled to another customer and from that, I tried it and it seems to work at first. But as I was going up a hill, I noticed it didn't even move on mi fit map, so it basically doesn't work via the Bluetooth GPS, it did disconnect and reconnect often, especially with notifications.

Because of this, I stopped at a garage to end the review. 

The Conclusion, 

Let's be honest, its basically a USB cable that reverses as far as my opinion goes. 

omracer's Rating: 3/10

The Good: 

  • Reversible micro usb cable#
  • it's braided

The Bad: 

  • The app doesn't work properly
  • No battery for the GPS
  • Doesn't work with google glass

That is is for this tech review, i will be possibly reviewing a mech keyboard soon if i get time as well as a capture card and might do more food reviews as well. Enjoy feburary.
