Chicago Town Xfactor Pizza and chances to win

Sponsored post


Why oh why do people vote for Frankie? Honestly! Does he have some hidden charm that I am immune to? And Kitty, oh I admit she is slightly more likeable now she’s stopped jumping in swimming pools and wrapping her limbs around unsuspecting piano players but she is so nasal!

Can anyone tell me what is going on with the judges? Kelly was “ill” last week, was she ill or was she hiding out after a battle of words with Tulisa?

Xfactor has had more ups and downs this year than the worlds scariest rollercoaster but thankfully one thing has remained constant for us on our Saturday night treat nights… the pizza!

We were asked to review the Chicago Town Limited Edition X Factor – and we don’t say no to pizza, ever. When this arrived I did wonder if it would be too spicy for the 5yr old as it is topped with X-tra large pepperoni, mini pepperoni, red onion, spicy beef and mozzarella. He cleared his plate so I’m guessing not!

This pizza has a real dough base and is stuffed crust, it tastes as if it came from a takeaway shop, despite being frozen oven pizza, but without that oily taste I always find you get with delivered pizza.

Ready for the oven, this pizza comes with an oven ready tray so no scraping stuck on pizza off the baking tray, it literally just slides onto your plate.

Each pack has a free music download code and a chance to win show tickets and a share of £2.5m of prizes, from free pizza to £10,000 in cash (which would buy a lot of pizza). You can find out more about all of this on the Chicago Town Xfactor website.

This is a great value pizza, Daddy had a plateful and Kieran and I both managed a good sized slice each.

*We received a voucher for this pizza (RRP £3.78) and this is a sponsored post. That aside, our pizza findings our our own. We consider ourselves pizza-eating experts due to our large amount of practice over the years and as such can honestly say this is one delicious pizza that we would, and will, buy again.

Barbarossa Pirate Ship from LetterboxUK #review

This is quite simply the pirate ship of all pirate ships! When Kieran opened the parel from Letterbox UK, well I think we can safely say he was pleased?

In all honesty, I’m not sure who was more excited, Kieran or me! This is a beautiful natural wood and painted ship which is of obvious quality, sturdy (most important when it sails off the coffee table “by accident”) and has a working canon! For those now panicking, it’d not a very powerful canon, no windows would be broken! Kieran has literally spent hours making lego figures and pirates alike walk the plank, has conquered the seven seas and looted more treasure than one 5yr old boy knows what to do with. Possibly the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while was Kieran taking his friend by the hand when he arrived for a playdate and whispering theatrically”You have to come upstairs… I have a real life pirate ship, a PROPER one!”

Suffice to say, the Barbarossa Pirate Ship is a big hit!

Priced at £43 this is a fantastic home or gift item that will go the distance! Gorgeous to look at, fantastic for getting the imagination going and made to last, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone. The only drawback is that the pirates don’t come with the ship but these are available separately here, or as Kieran has – you can use pirate figures or any figures you already have. We have had a mixture of pirates, superheroes and lego robbers walking the planks or being locked in the hold for their hideous crimes!

The Barbarossa Pirate Ship really should be up at the top of this year’s “Must haves” for Christmas. I’ll be surprised if it isn’t.
