Teaching Kids To Play With Their Food

“Don’t play with your food,” is something I distinctly remember hearing my parents say to me when I was a child. Which is why I’m a little bit surprised by developments this week.

I think I would like a sour apple flavour mmmm!

JenI - October 23, 2014 - 8:51 am

Big fans of Wizz Fizz here, but I’d never really thought of it coming in “flavours”. It’s sherbert flavour right? My kids do like the one that makes your teeth black. What fun! (errr…). And I hadn’t thought of it as icecream topping, but that could be on the menu tonight. Thanks for the tip! I guess if I have to pick a flavour I would go for something fruity like rasberry or lemon.

Bron - October 23, 2014 - 9:13 am

Turkish Delight of course.

Chloe mcbeath - October 23, 2014 - 9:38 am

I would love a mango flavour :)

Stacey barry - October 23, 2014 - 9:40 am

I’d like to have an orange flavour, like toc tacs but fizzy! Yum.

Alyssa - October 23, 2014 - 9:41 am

I think Mixed Berry flavour! Yum!

Andrew - October 23, 2014 - 10:39 am

BACON FLAVOUR!!! You can never have enough bacon. There’s bacon flavoured gumballs, chocolate bar, lollipops and ice-cream so why not Wizz Fizz.

Bee Bowdlert - October 23, 2014 - 11:20 am

I’d like a Fruit Salad flavoured Wizz Fizz.

Dianne Childs - October 23, 2014 - 11:27 am

Lemon Meringue Pie, because the sweetness of the sugary meringue would perfectly cut through the tangy, zestiness of the lemon, creating a fizzy, delicious taste sensation!

sapna - October 23, 2014 - 12:16 pm

I would love to see it in cherry flavour .

Rachel - October 23, 2014 - 12:39 pm

Peach flavour would have to be worth a try I think!!!

Tracey Young - October 23, 2014 - 5:47 pm

I think I’d like watermelon as it sounds sophisticated and adult, what I’m supposed to be now I’m 40! I still love my sherbet though so who cares what flavour as long as I can still buy it in multipacks.

Sharron Waeger - October 23, 2014 - 7:18 pm

I think I would Toffee Apple or sour Apple flavoured Fizz Wizz Yum yum

Ella - October 24, 2014 - 7:35 am

I love Wizz Fizz! After much debate our choice is mint choc flavour!

Lilmiss Coleyy - October 24, 2014 - 8:37 am

Savoury! Like tasty cheese. Or cheese and bacon. Or burger. I think the result would be surprisingly good.

Ainsley - October 24, 2014 - 9:44 am

We’d like to see a Cola Wizz Fizz! Love being able to share treats with my kids that I had as a kid & Wizz Fizz certainly falls into that category :)

Jocelyn R - October 24, 2014 - 4:13 pm

I’d love to see an ice-cream flavour. Sweet and tingly at the same time! A real twist on the original.

Justin Andrew Letchford - October 24, 2014 - 6:10 pm

Cola! Makes sense to do it since virtually every other candy/lollie has done cola and Wizz Fizz hasn’t!

Kiara R - October 24, 2014 - 6:18 pm

My Hubby loves Wizz Fizz and Spam… So a Spam flavored Wizz Fizz would probably fulfill his dreams. I on the other hand a Blueberry Wizz Fizz would be yummy!

Alice - October 24, 2014 - 6:27 pm

Chocolate, and why? Because chocolate!

Laura - October 24, 2014 - 6:30 pm

I’m drooling already…mmmm!!!

Laura - October 24, 2014 - 6:32 pm

I would like to see MINT sherbert because I love mint everything! Choc-mint thickshake, mint fudge….mmmmm

amanda - October 24, 2014 - 8:44 pm

Bugger the kids, it’d be for me :-)

amanda - October 24, 2014 - 8:46 pm

Oh, and strawberry flavoured. Anything strawberry flavoured is delish!

Caroline Beane - October 24, 2014 - 10:11 pm

Raspberry!! All raspberry confectionary is awesome :)

Fiona May - October 25, 2014 - 7:28 am

Id love choc mint flavour. mmm It would be so good. The mex of flavour with the sherbet effect would be just heaven.

Jess - October 25, 2014 - 9:02 am

I would love a grape flavoured wizzfizz… but I’m extremely keen to try bubble gum! ;-)

Jo - October 25, 2014 - 10:01 am

Naval orange… Raro, a powdered drink you get in NZ.

Jo - October 25, 2014 - 10:02 am

what about Apple?

Anonymous - October 25, 2014 - 11:24 am

Toffee apple flavour …because it brings back great memories of being a kid! :D

vi - October 25, 2014 - 11:32 am

I think just the usual flavour I tried another flavour a few months ago and it was not the same. So deifnately the regular flavour. Why change perfection

Julia - October 25, 2014 - 1:37 pm

marshmallow, maybe green apple. Mmmmm

Bianca Childs - October 25, 2014 - 3:17 pm

I think they should bring out a lemon and lime or orange flavour. Something about wizz fizz screams summer and what’s more summer-y then citrus?
Fizzy and fresh.

Bianca Jane Childs - October 25, 2014 - 3:19 pm

I think they should bring out a lemon and lime or orange flavour. Something about wizz fizz has always screamed summer and what’s more summer-y then citrus.
Fizzy and fresh.

Mel - October 25, 2014 - 4:52 pm

Blue raspberry. Wizz fizz has always been my favourite. It just needs to meet my favourite flavour.

Breastfeeding – It’s Now The Law

I was only just thinking the other day, you know what the world needs more of? Mother’s guilt.

View full post »

Meg - October 23, 2014 - 7:05 am

Hahaha. Priorities! Awesome!

Jen Davis - October 23, 2014 - 8:25 am

Despite the fact I breastfeed my 2 year old, I think this law is just unfathomable.
I have had so many problems but at least I knew in the back of my mind that if I couldn’t bear to do it anymore there was another viable option.
No government has the right to control a woman’s body for 2 years.

Rhiannon - October 23, 2014 - 8:59 am

I am fortunate enough to be part jersey cow, but with my first the best gift I was given was a tin of formula and some bottles. I never needed them, but the simple fact that they were there should they be needed was a huge help in those early painful days and the nine months of engorgement that followed. There was an option. And that made all the difference to my success.
I feel awful for all those mums with no other realistic options. This is not the right way to encourage breast feeding.

Kerri - October 23, 2014 - 1:28 pm

Australia really is the lucky country. I bottle fed all four of my children. Not cause I really wanted to but because I couldn’t breastfeed. I had a lactation consultant to help me but her exact words were:”Kerri, not everyone can breastfeed. Please don’t feel guilty because the main thing is that you are relaxed and can give your baby all the love she needs.”
Not sure I was ever totally relaxed with my first! The point is, all my children grew up healthy and happy. We all do the best we can for our children and sometimes, some women cannot breastfeed due to a number of reasons. Even beyond medical reasons. The law is ridiculous!

My Son Is So Devonair

My little boy is growing up. He now demands two sandwiches for lunch. But it’s not because he’s getting any taller…

Bloody little conniving so and sos. Mine are starting to do the same. Your cogs turn quicker than mine!

Is there anything scarier than finding something physically amiss with your kid?

Table Talk

“All we need to do,” I told my wife, “is buy an old table and cut the legs down. I’ve got a saw!” Anyone who’s ever seen or heard about my efforts with a hammer is now shuddering involuntarily.

Susan - October 19, 2014 - 12:40 am

I’m already thinking what the blog will be with your talents of the saw. A good read thats for sure. lol, lol

Bruce Devereaux - October 19, 2014 - 12:43 am

The idea that after trying to even each leg up we may end up with a flat bit of table top on the ground with no legs at all has crossed my mind :D

Amanda - October 19, 2014 - 7:13 am

Call me an enabler maybe but have you checked out the freebies section on gumtree?

Mel G - October 19, 2014 - 6:45 pm

Boy, she’s quick!
