Popcorn is a ‘superfood’. It’s low in calories, fat, sugar and salt and high in fibre, protein, magnesium, iron, B1, B2, B6… You could almost live on popcorn alone!
If a healthy option is what you’re after, you’ve come to the wrong place. We’ve taken this healthy & delicious snack and morphed it into a devilish delight – salted toffee popcorn. It doesn’t take long to transform – a mere 10 minutes – it knocks the socks off (and costs a tiny fraction of) the stuff you can buy at the cinema.
So, next time you’re sitting down to an episode of Gogglebox, Homeland or Downton Abbey – quickly pop yoursef up some of this, it’s the perfect accompaniment!

For ages I couldn’t get to grips with this bi-annual time change – it’s not practiced in Trinidad where I grew up. The sudden change to dark evenings still affects me hugely even though I’ve been back living in the UK for over 25 years. But I take the rough with the smooth; the long, bright summer evenings almost make up for it!
I now mentally recite the mnemonic, “spring forward, fall back”, to remember which way to turn the hands on my watch & clocks around the house.
Anstey and Wilson were a Birmingham-based electro plated ware manufacturering company and appear to have been trading right up until the late 1990s when it was dissolved.
They produced lots of different designs of starburst/sunburst clocks in teak and brass. Their looks and quality are on a par with (often more expensive) Seth Thomas examples. This one is ‘buy it now’ for £50 with £7 postage. We don’t think the listing will last its whole course – there are already 27 people who have put it in their watch list!
