St Pierre : Brioche Hot Dog Rolls

About : Take your barbecue to Paris and enjoy every bite of St Pierre’s rich Brioche Hot Dog Rolls.

FB: @StPierreEurope
IG: @stpierreeurope

I was introduced to this brand via the Degusta box, and I am so glad I was and so happy to see another product from them.

I thought ok lets go get some shopping and have hotdogs this evening.

I made them up and mmm these were the perfect buns, MUCH better than normal ones.

They are more light, fluffy and great taste and add to the full flavour of the whole hotdog.

If you like hotdogs you HAVE to try it with these buns.

I put this in the fridge to chill, and take out later as the sun was coming out.

I poured this into a glass and took it outside to enjoy.

I am not really a big tea person, but this was very nice the flavour of the mangos came over first and the aftertaste was of tea but very subtle which was perfect for me.

This was very refreshing and I could see me try it again, but if your a tea drinker you will love this.

Pot Pasta : Carbonara / Bolognese

About : Potentially the best way to try a taste of Italy without the hassle – because life’s too short to be stuck behind the stove! All our pots bring you great taste in just 5 minutes, so you can spend less time cooking and more time living.

FB: @potnoodle
IG: @potnoodle

Every now and then a wee pot noodle is always good for a quick snack or filler till your meal, so when I saw these were Italian themed I couldn’t wait to pop them open and try.

These are quick and easy to make, and only take 3mins which is perfect for a quick snack.

Personally the taste was just ok for both, I think there are better pop noodles out there and these were just so so.

Three Fold Hard Seltzer : Red Berries

I love finding new drinks, and seltzers are becoming more and more popular these days.

I put this in to chill, and took it outside and sat enjoying the sun with this.

I really liked this, it had a subtle tropical taste but it was very refreshing and easy to drink.

I am aiming to try and try more seltzer drinks, and this one is one you defo need to try if you like them.

Bull’s Eye : Original BBQ Sauce

About : This BBQ sauce for pork chops and steak is created with the Bull’s-Eye blend of tangy tomato and bell pepper, with a deep chilli aftertaste. It’s a never-back-down flavour that gives your BBQ a taste of what New Yorkers have been doing for years – all in one bottle.

FB: @BullseyeBBQUKIreland
IG: @bullseyebbq

I got some Bullseye sauce in the last box and really enjoyed it, so I couldnt wait to try this.

I decided to make myself a nice chicken and cheese burger, and add this sauce to it.

WOW this was MEGA tasty! it was light, full of flavour and a nice sweet taste and really added to my burger.

I am buying lots of this when I am at the supermarket as its that good!!!

McVities Jaffa cakes : Blackcurrant Flavour

About : McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes, Chocolate on the top, sponge on the bottom, and a tangy blackcurrant fruity bit in the middle.

FB: @Jaffacakes
IG: @Jaffacakesofficial

Jaffa Cakes were in the last Degusta Box and I really liked the flavour, plus it brings back childhood memories.

Ohh blackcurrant flavour, this sounds very yummy…time to taste.

I sat outside in the sun, opened the box and took a bite.

ohh it has the same lovely texture that we all know and love, and this one has a lovely subtle blackcurrant flavour.

If i say so I think half the packet was finished and probably by the time you read this the whole box now.

Lindt : Nocciolatte Milk Hazelnut/ Noccionoir Dark Hazelnut

About : A bar of whole hazelnuts and smooth hazelnut praline filling, coated in delicious milk or dark chocolate, crafted by the Lindt Master Chocolatier.

FB: @lindtespana
IG: @lindtuk

Due to these having hazelnut I couldn’t try them as that’s one nut I am allergic to. So I gave them to my parents to try and review for me.

They said they really liked both and couldn’t pick what one they preferred the milk or dark and could have easily had a second bar each.

McCoy’s: Fire Pit Peri Peri / McCoy’s Fire Pit Chorizo

About : McCoy’s recently launched a new range, Fire Pit, in three delicious new flavours Flame Roasted Peri Peri, Flame Smoked Chorizo and Flame Scorched BBQ Ribs all inspired by the rustic flavours of cooking meat over an open fire.

FB: @McCoysCrisps
IG: @McCoys_Official

woohoo some crisps, always good to nibble on anytime of the day 🙂

I started with the Chorizo one, as I am mega addicted to Chorizo these days.

No difference in texture or crunch, but these had a nice subtle chorizo flavour. I tried a few at once to see if that would change the flavour, but no it was still coming over for me just a nice subtle flavour.

Now on to the peri peri…

Just like the other crisps you all know the texture and crunch, and again a very subtle flavour…well for me.

Both crisps were very nice, and finished fast but I little stronger flavour I think would have been much better.

Smarties : Chocolate Sharing Bag

Yummy smooth milk chocolate covered in colourful crisp sugar shells, now wrapped in paper packaging!

FB: @smartiesuk
IG: @smartiesuki

As soon as I hear the name “Smarties” I am instantly teleported back to being a kid and holding them in my hand and having the colours left on my palm and how addictive they were to eat.

I am still a big kid at heart, so I had a massive smile when I saw these.

As an adult these didnt stay long enough in my palm to leave any colours as they were put right into my mouth.

Yum yum and yum is all you can really say about these. Smarties are just a great sweet and nibble to have.

All our snacks are:
– best alternative to crisps!

FB: @lovecorn
IG: @lovecorn_snacks

I was introduced to Love Corn ages ago by a beer company called BeerMeNow which is now Beer52, and really enjoyed them back then so I was looking forward to trying this flavour.

I love these, very easy to eat and perfect with a nice cool drink.

The flavour was very nice and came across just perfectly, not too strong or to subtle…very nice.

Check them out!!

Fox’s Glacier : After Darks / Little Lifts / Summer Punch

FB: @foxsglaciers
IG: @foxsglaciers

So many bags to try, and all sounded very very nice.

All of them are the same shape and size, and texture….more a sucking sweet than eating but I am sure if you have strong teeth you could crunch these but to be honest they are better as a sucking sweet.

I really liked all the flavours and they are now in my car, so when I am needing a wee sweet I can just grab one while I am driving.

Taylors of Harrogate : Coffee bags

About : Freshly ground coffee in a bag that works like a teabag for when you want proper ground coffee, but don’t want to bother the cafetière or fire up the Espressomatic 3000TM.

FB: @TaylorsofHarrogate
IG: @taylors

So this is an interesting idea, coffee in a bag…but how does it actually taste and is it simple to use?

I went for the Italian one to start with, and opened the packet and followed the instructions waiting exactly 2 minutes.

The end result did look like a coffee, it smelled nice but how did it taste?

This tasted much better than I expected, just like a normal cup of coffee…I was very impressed.
