Virtue Drinks : Clean Energy

About : Virtue Clean Energy is a healthy energy drink, with zero sugar & zero calories, made with all natural ingredients. With the same amount of natural caffeine (80mg) as the leading energy drink or coffee. Our natural energy is sourced from green coffee beans, plus B-vitamins.

As you may have seen I do like the odd energy drink, just to give me a wee boost for the day.

When I saw this and spotted it was natural caffeine, this sounded very good and I popped it in the chiller and took it to my work to try.

Oh this was an interesting taste, it was very light but had a nice subtle berry flavour and really nice and easy to drink.

I could easily replace my normal energy drinks for this….keep watching to see if I do.

Skippy Peanut Butter : Choc Chip Swirl

About : Fancy peanut butter that packs a chocolatey punch? Look no further than SKIPPY® Peanut Butter Choc Chip Swirl. Every jar is swirled with lots of chocolate chip pieces melted into the peanut butter so you get the original smooth, creamy and delicious SKIPPY® Peanut Butter, plus some extra chocolate indulgence.

If you follow my blog or Instagram you will know I love my peanut butter, so when I saw this I was like woohoo a new one to try.

Then I spotted it…”chocolate” ohh now this sounded like heaven to me two flavours I love loads….but would it taste like heaven?

I made myself some toast and started to spread, instantly I could see the chocolate come through and it looked good!!!!!

Now to taste…

Now this is exactly as I hoped for, it was smooth creamy peanut taste and a lovely hint of chocolate….it was heaven for me and I LOVED IT!!!!!

This is now my number 1 peanut butter!!!!

UP&GO Breakfast Drinks : Banana & Honey

I popped this in to chill and grabbed it the next morning to have at work, rather than my normal breakfast.

This tasted nice, a subtle banana flavour and was a nice easy drink to drink…I didn’t really taste the honey more than bananas but that could just be me.

I did feel full after it, and it did take me all the way to my lunch so it did what it was intended to do.

5th Season Fruit : Strawberry Bites

About : 5th Season is a range of tasty and healthy freeze-dried fruit snacks enabling people to consume more fruit, anywhere, anytime, anyhow. We select the best-tasting fruit from around the world. Using the latest technology we freeze-dry it and put into convenient packs for on-the-go consumption.

I love a new product and this is new to me, plus dried fruit is also something I have not had for a long time.

I took these to work and used them as a healthy nibble, to see how they and taste.

Ohh these are lovely, very light, still packing a great flavour and a great healthy snack.

I could easily see me get more of these, as they were a great nibble for during the day.

Nescafe Gold : Ices Salted Caramel Latte

About : Enjoy a high quality coffee with a twist. Each NESCAFÉ GOLD Iced Salted Caramel Latte is a deliciously milky coffee with a hint of caramel flavour that can be enjoyed at any time. The expertise that goes into each cup results in a cold drink with a delicious taste.

I followed the instructions on the packet, and maid myself a wee Salted Caramel Latte.

I went into take a sip and stopped, as the smell was very very nice….then continued to try it.

Taste wise, this was very nice it was a nice milky coffee flavour…the salted part for me was just there and no more but that could be my palate since I have a sweet tooth.

This tasted really nice, and packed with flavour I can’t wait till I have some time to do some more home cooking.

Pagen Gifflar : Cinnamon Rolls

Even from the outside looking into the packet they looked very tasty, so I couldn’t wait to open it and try them.

I opened the packet and the cinnamon smell was very nice, so I grabbed one and took a bite.

The texture was lovely nice and soft and the flavour was nice, but for me there could have been a stronger cinnamon taste as it was just there and no more….but do remember I have a sweet tooth so this could be perfect for you.

The packet was finished very fast as they were a little addictive 🙂

TWEEK : Sweets with Benefits

I have never heard of these which is why I love the DegustaBox as most of the time its all new products for me.

I did notice it said “sour” which I am not that big a fan of but I am always up for trying new things and seeing how they are.

I grabbed two and ate them…..

Ohhh I was very surprised as the sourness was not as sour as I expected, these were nice and chewy and had a nice flavour but still a bit sour for my liking.

Oreo : Original Coolies

Oreos are always very popular and when you think of the name you instantly can remember how they taste.

For me Oreo’s are super addictive, as I could easily have a whole packet to myself and not feel sick.

I love the flavour, and anything Oreo is always good from these to milkshakes etc etc

I was very happy to see there was two packets, as one will be my night time movie snack.

Shreddies : The Simple One

About: A delicious less than 5% sugar breakfast cereal made with just four simple ingredients; whole grain wheat, sweetened with banana puree & date syrup, and a pinch of salt.

I have been eating healthier now since last year, and changing my breakfast cereal from something packed with sugars to something better was a must.

When I saw these I couldn’t wait to try them, I have not had Shreddies for a long time, so I wanted to see if I still liked them.

I poured these for my breakfast along side my normal coffee, and sat down with YouTube and started eating.

These are very tasty and also filled me up till lunch time.

I will be buying these again, to add to my other healthy breakfast cereal.

Overall :

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 🙂
