Obvs, we want ours to say METRO (Picture: McVities) Guys, we have some pretty spesh news… You can now get personalised Jaffa Cakes. Ok, the actual Jaffa Cakes aren’t personalised, but the box is, and that’s still pretty darn exciting. We mean, just think of how many tricky present buying situations these are going to solve… fathers day, Secret Santa, those occasions where you have to get someone a gift but don’t really know them so don’t even know where to start, end of the month birthdays when you’re broke (they’re just £2.49 a packet you see).

Behold the Dausage (Picture: Facebook) It’s so wrong it might just be right. A man called Liam Bennett has been quietly creating a new foodstuff to blow your minds in a corner of Carmarthenshire in south west Wales. It’s the sausage/doughnut hybrid you never even knew you wanted. That’s a sausage filled with jam. And it’s called a Dausage *hears choirs of angels singing*. We’re divided between utter horror and unfathomable thirst (on seeing it for the first time, one person in the Metro.co.uk office said ‘it looks like a fallopian tube.’) The list of amazing flavour combinations currently being taste-tested by […] Read more →
The Only Way is Essex (Picture: Lime Pictures) Just like many other places around the country, Essex has its stereotypes. I am sure we have all heard of at least one or two. Here, I clear up some of the common misconceptions people make about folk from Essex. 1. Essex girls are easy Yep, that’s right, a bag of chips and a can of cider and we are anybody’s. Seriously, Essex is just the same as anywhere else in the country, and yes there are people who are more generous with their love than others. Most are not. 2. We […] Read more →
He’s back, and ready for more (Picture: AFP/Getty) If you were to take a microscope and examine Xbox’s DNA, you’d find something like Halo: The Master Chief Collection nestled at its heart. Their green-clad super-soldier is now indistinguishable from the brand he represents, and the fuss surrounding these re-mastered games is a reminder of the leading force this series has become. Except – and let’s have a dramatic gasp at this stage – you could argue that Halo is far past its sell-by date.

This dog’s pretty happy to live in the UK (Picture: Paper Boat Creative) This year’s Happy Planet index had the UK barely making the top 50, way behind Costa Rica which came out top. But let’s not get too downhearted. The UK is a great place to live and here’s why… MORE: World’s happiest countries revealed – and the UK barely scrapes the top 50 1. Pies The French, in particular, used to take great delight in ridiculing our cuisine, and yet the UK is home to arguably the best comfort food in the world. Not only do we do […] Read more →
Do most UK gamers even know what this is? A reader offers his theory for why Nintendo has never been as popular in the UK as elsewhere, and why they probably never will be… I read with interest GC’s report on the sales of Grand Theft Auto V and the fact that top four selling individual games in the UK are all by Nintendo. Equally interesting was the astonishment of some readers, which I shared. Not because I didn’t know these games had done well overall but because I was surprised they had done so in Britain. The UK has […] Read more →
