‘Food And Beverage’
By Falcon De-Luxe Jigsaws

This jigsaw puzzle was a bargain price find at just £3, purchased from the charity shop where I volunteer and which supports my local hospice. It seeems to have taken me an age to finish, but to be fair, I have only worked on it in very short bursts and quite infrequently.



Part of the ‘Days Gone By’ range featuring beautiful and nostalgic images. This builds into a delightful montage of charming old food and drink adverts. This puzzle is made using Jumbo’s new DCM cutting technology for a high quality finish and with pieces that interlock extremely cleanly.

Another trip down memory lane, with this selection of food and drink advertisements, although given the estimated dateline of the products, I am pleased to say that I only recognised one of the brand names, that of Tennent’s Lager. If you follow this link, you will quickly work out that things have moved on in the world of product advertising, since the days of this jigsaw depiction, however Tennent’s seems to have stood the test of time and are a thriving business to this day.

This was quite a colourful and varied puzzle to work, with several areas of detailed interest and degrees of difficulty, although not so much as to spoil any enjoyment and sense of achievement.

The apparent age of the puzzle probably also answers the only criticism I was going to make about it, in that there is only the small amount of text as quoted above, which offers scant information about the origins of the brands and images used. On more modern jigsaws of this type, a comprehensive ‘synopsis’ is almost an integral part of the overall experience. Still, when all is said and done, at the price, I really have little cause for complaint. The finished jigsaw looks good and it was definitely a fun filled challenge to complete!

This jigsaw puzzle was a charity shop purchase. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I personally do not agree with ‘rating’ a purchase, as the overall experience is all a matter of personal taste, which varies from person to person. However some review sites do demand a rating value, so when this review is posted to such a site, it will attract a 4 out of 5.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
