For as long as I can remember, my mother deferred to Choice Magazine.
Need a new car? Go to Choice Magazine to find out which one has the highest ANCAP safety rating and a radio that won’t short circuit within days of the warranty expiring.
Need a new fridge? Go to Choice Magazine and find out which one has the highest energy efficiency rating.
Got a nasty rash? Go to Choice Magazine and find out which cream has tested most successfully by a panel of impartial experts.
Got a school project on guinea pigs? Go to Choice Magazine and find out who’s been exploiting small fury animals. Not necessarily guinea pigs, but hey, you don’t question the great and powerful Choice Magazine.
Busted smoking in your cubby house? *ahem* Go to Choice Magazine and read about the dangers of smoking.
Flash forward 20 years, and I’m a bit like my mother, only I defer to the great and almighty Google for all of my
When Nuffnang offered me the chance to write a sponsored post about Choice Magazine subscriptions, my mother was supremely jealous and beside herself, and I was also quite looking forward to it. My Mother is bragging about this as if they’ve asked me to take over as Editor. Which I’m totally available for, by the way.
So, what did I think about Choice Magazine, 20 years since I last perused the pages to read about why I should not be smoking in my cubby house?
I loved it. Which, to be honest, surprised me. I was expecting it to be all yawny factual articles full of scientific data and statistics. But it wasn’t yawny at all (yawny being my official unit of measurement for the boredom factor).
The article that most caught my attention was about The Shonky Awards.
The Shonky Awards are run by Choice Magazine, in the same impartial way that their product testing and reviews are carried out.
I love it when Choice waves their finger in the face of various industries, and outs them for their crimes against consumers.
