So Apple announced a service bundle yesterday, packaging up services in an effort to upsell you on their expensive services. As someone who already uses an Apple family music plan and iCloud, none of these are interesting or at all price competitive.
Would I like to pay an extra £9 a month for Apple Arcade and Apple tv+ and News +? No. Would I take them for free at the prices I’m currently paying? No.
As usual though we got the breathless uncritical coverage from the UK media…
I really wanted to like the Santa Cruz Chameleon… but I didn’t.
It’s light, really stiff, and climbs really well (on tarmac or manicured trail/path). Going downhill was a different story – it was super skittish and the rear end *never* stayed down – felt like I was riding a pogo stick.
Imagine a giant chocolate turtle and you’ve got Hammond’s Pecan & Caramel Piggy Back. They are huge – half an inch thick, solid, and a real handful. Great taste, great balance of caramel and nuts, great to chew on.
This looks like a posh version of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. It’s a huge cup with a massive amount of solid but relatively flavourless chocolate wrapped completely tasteless peanut butter. It’s so solid it’s hard to bite into. And it’s not cheap. So I don’t think I liked it.
Unfortunately, it’s not. It’s the softest dark chocolate ever (and I thought dark chocolate was usually firm, if not brittle?) and the taste is unpleasant with a not particularly nice aftertaste that I’m struggling to describe. Give it a miss.
Far too sweet and far too soft – melts almost instantly in your mouth which I find unpleasant. Short sweet after-taste. You can buy better, but unfortunately this is really the most common “premium” white chocolate bar in the UK.
