Just when you thought Valentines Day gifts couldn’t get any more extravagant! Award winning appliance manufacturers (and cool design kings) Smeg released a very special FAB28 red velvet refrigerator (it looks so good it could almost taste as good as Red Velvet cake, seriously!

Anyway, its not all about a fancy fridge on V-Day, Smeg is also teaming up with Bentalls in Kingston-upon-Thames for a week of non-stop fun. From 7th to 14th February, Smeg will showcase their brand new, very special FAB28 red velvet refrigerator, which will be exclusively revealed to Bentalls’ customers and the UK for the very first time. To celebrate, Smeg has devised an exciting competition where one lucky person can win their own red velvet fridge and send a message of love, or even a marriage proposal, to the special people in their life thanks to a clever and innovative built-in fridge cam.n-09

During the event, customers will be invited to use the fridge cam and pose for a photograph alongside their own personal love heart message which they need to tweet with the hashtag #lovesmegfridge and #velvetvalentine to be in with a chance to win. Also don’t forget to look out for the SMEG500R, a limited edition, Fiat-styled refrigerator, which is also debuting for the very first time.

Smeg’s brand manager John Davies says: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Bentalls store in Kingston upon Thames and are excited to show how Smeg always work hard to push the boundaries with experiential activity that engages with our customers. The latest special addition to the Smeg family, the FAB28 red velvet refrigerator is symbolic of our iconic style and with its curved edges, 50s style lettering and soft, matt texture we’re sure this will be a hit!”

But I haven’t got time for a competition, but I do have time for a new fridge! Tell me more! 

With a capacity of 256 litres featuring an ice compartment with a frozen food capacity of 26 litres, the FAB28 red velvet model comes with Smeg’s automatic defrost technology as well as three adjustable glass shelves, one fruit and vegetable container and a chrome wine rack. This fridge has an A++ energy efficiency rating and a 40dB sound level which is far lower than normal conversation levels at 59dB, making it perfect for open-plan living. Priced from £1,275, the dimensions of the Smeg FAB28 measure 60cmW by 69.2cmD by 151cmH and this model is also available in 12 striking colours.

Watching your weight? Its ok, you can still treat yourself with @weightwatchers hot chocolate!

Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.44.14It may not be time for bikini bodies anymore, but you still might be keeping an eye on your weight…so what can you eat? Well, chocolate is normally a big no-no, but fear not, we think Weight Watchers may have just found the solution!! 

The new product team at Weight Watchers Hot Chocolate have been working hard with you in mind to develop a fantastic premium hot chocolate that delivers a more intense chocolate drink – and that’s low fat too!  What’s more, it can even be used in home baking!

We here at Snoochie Boochies gave it a try, and can seriously vouch for the fact that it tastes great! You could easily swap your calorific hot choc for this little number and you wouldn’t even notice the difference in flavour. In fact it tastes creamier and more luxurious than some of the market leaders, who knew?!

And if you’re keeping count of points, Weight Watchers Select Hot Chocolate will be a lower ProPoints® value alternative to other premium ‘add milk’ hot chocolate brands such as Green & Blacks, Twinings and Charbonnel.Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.43.42

Here’s the science…

Weight Watchers Select Hot Chocolate’s unique formula contains 50% real chocolate but is still low in fat. Containing only 92 calories and with a ProPoints value of just 2 per serving, Select will be an indulgent delight for chocolate lovers looking for a real chocolate hit without giving up on the plan. The new hot chocolate drink will also offer tremendous value for money with an RSP of £2.49 for a massive 36 servings in the 216g tub.

When compared with the established Weight Watchers Hot Chocolate instant range, the new luxury product also has the added benefit of being home baking friendly and can easily be used as a substitute for cocoa powder in sweet treats such as brownies, muffins and biscuits!Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.43.58

What, there’s more?! 

Yep! Variety is the spice of life don’t forget, and Weight Watchers also has a  range of different flavoured hot chocolate drinks that are all made with real chocolate and contain only 40 calories per serving. The three blissful flavours, which include smooth chocolate, dreamy caramel and mouth-watering mint, also cater perfectly for those on a ProPoints controlled diet, with a ProPoints value of just 1 per serving.

Available in jars which hold 20 servings and have an RRP of £2.89 and in single-serving handy sachets with an RRP of 35p; all of which contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
