If something removes "up to 100% of stains", then maybe on rare occasions it might remove all the stains, but usually it will remove anything from 0% to 99% of them. And here, "up to 60% less" might as well say "Prices reduced on some products. In some cases by 10%, in others 25%, in a few 60%. But don't expect to find any price reductions better than this. And some products haven't had their prices reduced at all." Aaargh.

Regular readers of this blog (poor you) will be aware that I am a bit of a fan of ice cream. You may also have noticed mentions in passing that I'm partial to crème brûlée. So imagine the general yayness I felt on seeing this stuff on sale. I mean, crème brûlée ice cream – what's not to like?
Well, there is a layer of burnt – sorry, caramelised – sugar on top, and the flavour of the dessert is fairly CB-like. But the texture is an utter disappointment: it's basically just foam. It barely registers in the mouth at all. And there are interesting-looking layers and swirls within the ice cream, but these prove to be the same stuff, just a different shade of beige. Totally unremarkable, I'm afraid.
