Ginger drink I am not a fan off really, as the ginger always catches the back of my throat but I am always up for finding something that changes my mind on a specific food or drink.

I put this in to chill, and popped it open to have along side my dinner.

Oh ok so this wasn’t as bad as other ginger drinks for me, I think because it also had lemonade it lessened the ginger kick for me.

This was refreshing and had an ok taste, if you like ginger then this is 100% for you.

McVitie’s Hobnob : Sticky Toffee Pudding

FB: McVitiesOfficial
IG: Mcvitiesofficial

Hobnobs are a classic, everyone loves them, people either dunk them in their tea or have them as is.

When I saw these I was very happy, and then I noticed the flavour….Sticky Toffee Pudding ohhh now this was going to be interesting.

I had to take them as is to do a proper review, before I dunked in to my tea/coffee.

Oh I was pleasantly surprised by the flavour, I don’t think its 100% sticky toffee pudding flavour….its more a toffee flavour but it was very very nice.

I cant wait to finish these 🙂

Aero : Dark & Milk

About : Introducing Aero® Dark&Milk, a darker chocolate bar that is bubbling with smooth milk and dark intensity. Aero® Dark&Milk has a higher percentage of cocoa solids than standard Aero®, whilst keeping the lightness and smoothness of Aero® milk chocolate.

I love a good dark chocolate bar, and I like Aero as a brand.

I am not a massive mint aero person, so when I saw this one I was very happy and couldnt wait to open the packet and dig right in.

As expected it melts in the mouth, has an amazing flavour and there is no way you can only have a little you have to have the whole bar.

Due to this containing Almonds, I cant eat it so I gave it to my mum to review.

She said she really liked the flavour, the dark chocolate didn’t take away from the rest of the flavours which she liked and she liked the texture.

Get More Vits : Vitamin D Mango & Passion Fruit Drink

About : Daily dose of Vitamin D, Sugar free and low calorie, Tasty and delicious Mango & Passionfruit flavour 

FB: GetMoreVits
IG: getmorevits

I had actually just heard about Get More Vits a week prior to getting the DegustaBox, as I had heard it was a great way of getting well more vitamins.

I drink a lot of water every day, so drinking water with vitamins is just as easy and simple and better for me so this sounded very good.

After a workout I drank this, this had a nice flavour the mango and passionfruit was just there and not over powering. It was very refreshing, and healthy as it is water with some vitamins in it.

This is something I can see myself drinking more off.

Bull’s-Eye Kentucky Habanero Hot Sauce

This was a new brand for me, and am not a big hot sauce person but always willing to give it ago.

For dinner I decided to have some of this, and see how hot and how it tasted.

This had a nice kick to it, not super hot and once that kicked disappeared which was fast the flavour was really nice!! so nice I think half the bottle was finished.

I would 100% buy this and recommend this if you like hot sauces.

Dorset Cereals : Nutty Granola

About : Enjoy a breakfast worth slowing down for, with dorset cereals Nutty Granola. Made full of crunchy cashews and delicious almonds, so you’ll want to press pause and savour each mouthful. We call it Breakfast on the Slow, and we would love you to join us.

Due to this containing hazelnuts and cashews, I can’t eat this, so I gave it to my mum to do this review.

My mum made this for her Sunday breakfast, and this is what she said “she loved the crunchy texture and the flavours of all the nuts was really good” and she had it the next morning to…so that says how much she enjoyed it.

About : The Very Lazy Paste gives your food that textbook spicy kick but with the added deepness you get from the smokiness. Easy to use and an all round crowd pleaser, we’re sure all the family will enjoy. Visit verylazy.com for recipe ideas. 

FB: Verylazyfood
IG: Verylazyfooduk

I was very happy to see another “Very Lazy” product as I think it’s a great name and a great brand.

I popped the top open and took a smell and mmm it was so good, and I couldn’t wait to use it.

I actually made a Mexican BLT, and used this on it as it did require chipotle paste (recipe for that soon so keep watching)

Noodl Plus : Instant Noodles

This looked and sounded very interesting “Turmeric Noodles”, this was new to me as one I have never heard of this style of noodles and two I have never tried them.

I followed the instructions and tasted.

Hmm flavour-wise it was just so so for me, the noodles didn’t have the same texture as normal noodles….a bit more of a bit to them.

As I said it was just so so for me, I am not too sure if I would have this one again.

Get More Vits : Multivitamin Chewing Gum

Another Get More Vids product, and this time its was chewing gum…interesting.

I popped one out the packet, and gave it a chew.

Oh this was very nice, it had a nice peppermint flavour not too strong just there and very nice. It was a little crunchy to start with, then was more like gum.

I really liked this and had one a day till the packet finished, this is something I would be happy purchasing and using on a regular basis.

Tilda : Limited Edition Japanese Teriyaki Rice

About : Delicious and authentic, made with sticky jasmine rice mixed with spring onions, carrots and water chestnuts with addition of soy sauce, sugar and mirin (ingredients typically used in teriyaki marinade). Quick and easy way to bring taste of Japan to your plate and make your midweek meal more exciting. 

Ohh this again was a new product for me, and it sounded really good so I couldn’t wait to try this.

I made some homemade sweet and sour chicken, and used this rice along side it.

Firstly the rice was super easy to make, cut the top of the packet and put it in the microwave for a few mins and done.

Flavour wise ohhh so so good and the texture was also good, it was perfect along side the chicken and I have purchased this packet again and can’t wait to use it again.

Brioche Pasquier : Pancakes

About Our brand new pancakes are twin-wrapped for convenience and delicious either on their own or when covered with sweet toppings and fruit. 

When I brought this out to take photos and try, I didn’t notice the “brioche” part of the description.

I heated them up and put some butter on them and dug right in.

WOW WOW WOW!!! yes these were amazing!!!

These are buttery fluffy and extremely extremely moreish! these were finished the same day they were opened and I can’t wait to have more.

I rate out of 5 but these are a solid 10

My Rating : 10

Overall :

Website : www.degustabox.com/en/

As always this is a great box, you get amazing treats each month and it’s always good to try new products.

I loved this months box, as there were a few items I have purchased again or will when I find them in my supermarket.

I highly recommend you check them out as I have loved every month so far 🙂
