Choc Chip Brioche Roll (6pack)
Brioche Pasquier

Chocolate chip and Brioche…this is a winning combination for anyone so I was very happy to see this in this months Degusta Box.

I already knew this packet wouldn’t last long, as I loved everything about this.

I took one out and had a bite….yip just as good as I thought 🙂

HIGHLY recommended!!!!! and mega addictive.

Ciabatta Original (140g)
Carr’s

About : Our Italian inspired ciabatta crackers are oven baked and are a perfect base for experimenting with flavour and trying something new. The same baking ingenuity that inspired our founder back in 1831, lives with us today in the craft and care that we put into our ciabatta crackers.

Ohh this was something new for me, and I do like having some crackers and cheese or something every now and then….so I was looking forward to trying these.

I took them out the packet, grabbed some ham and cheese and put it all together and tasted.

Mmm these were a very nice cracker, and the ham and cheese added that extra flavour. I look forward to trying other toppings over the next few days, and I am sure I will be buying more of these.

Fajita Seasoning Mix / Chicken Taco Seasoning
Santa Maria

About : OUR WAY OF THINKING – Our curiosity and passion for good food has helped us to explore new tastes and irresistible flavours from all around the world. At Santa Maria our cornerstones are taste and quality. Only the best is good enough and we never compromise. This is our promise to you.

I was a bad blogger when I tried these as I was too focused on the instructions and recipe tonight I forgot to take photos along the way and of the end result.

What I can tell you is I used the Medium Fajita seasoning mix tonight, and the wrap had chicken, lettuce, red pepper and mayo and it was very very nice.

Hummus Tomato and Basil
Eat Real Snacks

About : We’re on a mission to bring you delicious snacks made with honest ingredients that never compromise. Mouthwateringly moreish, with a satisfying crunch, our Hummus Tomato and Basil chips are proof that snacks really can taste good and leave you feeling good. Real ingredients, real crunch, real taste.

I love snacking on some nice crisps every now and then, and these sounded lovely and looked interesting.

On opening the packet the smell of the tomato and basil hit me right away, it brought back memories of being in Italy for me…now it was taste time.

These had a nice crunch to them, and the flavour was really good….as I said for me it brought back memories of Italy for me. These were very light and so light to eat, the packet was finished the same day it was opened.

Jonuts single unit
Jaffa

About : Light sponge doughnut shaped ring with orange flavoured filling, covered in dark chocolate.

The name Jaffa cake takes me back to my childhood, and how addictive they were. I would easily have one after another, so when I saw this I thought “i hope this is good as it sounds interesting”

Time to taste…

Cutting it open it didn’t look much, but then I took a bite and it tasted mega fluffy and that Jaffa Cake flavour we all love came through.

This was really good! and if I spot them in my shops I am 100% going to buy a few 🙂

Katsuo Udon
Kelly Loves

About : Authentic Korean Katsuo broth with a generous portions of Udon noodles, and dried bonito flakes as topping to bring extra umami. Even better, the product is low in fat & sugar.

How cool is this, and another new product for me.

This sounded very interesting, and the instructions were just as easy as a pot noodle…so lets see how it tasted.

I followed the instructions, poured the packets and then the water…popped it in the microwave and then let it cool down a little.

This smelled amazing!!! and looked interesting.

This tasted very nice once it had cooled down a little, the noodles were very nice and the broth was mega tasty and it worked great.

For me this was better than any pot noodle, it had much more flavour to it and just as easy and quick to make.

Orange Algarve
Compal

I am not a massive fan of orange juice as I always find it too acidic and pulls my cheeks in, so I was 50/50 with trying this.

I popped it in to chill, then poured myself a glass.

I took a sip and expected my cheeks to be pulled in….nope this was lovely!

It was smooth had a great flavour, and I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much when it was finished I went out and purchased more.

Passion Fruit
Sumol

Going by the front of this can I noticed it was Passion Fruit, which for me is always a great flavour so I couldn’t wait to pop it open and try.

After chilling I poured myself a drink, and tasted it.

Ohhhh this had a lovely flavour, the passion fruit was a really nice strength and not too strong.

It was very refreshing and finished very fast.

Prince Chocolate / White Chocolate
Prince

As soon as I saw these in the box, I instantly had flashbacks to when I was in Italy in the supermarket. I would buy these for the hotel room, in case at night I wanted a wee nibble.

I started with the chocolate and again instantly transported back to Italy, the crunch, the taste mmm mega mega moreish.

I moved on to the white chocolate, and ohh just as nice as the chocolate but more creamy and just as addictive.

These were both finished very fast, and I cant wait to purchase more of these.

HIGHLY Recommended!!!!!

Protein Almond, Peanut & Double Choc (45g)
Nature’s Heart

About : Tasty combination of crunchy almonds and peanuts covered in quality dark chocolate from certified sustainable cocoa. Each bar contains 10g of plant protein powered by pea and nuts. They are gluten free, suitable for vegetarians and high in fibre. The perfect snack to keep you going during a busy day.

Due to these containing nuts I had to give them to my mum, as I am allergic to nuts.

I was told this was very tasty and had a nice texture.

Toffifee
Storck

About : Toffifee is the perfect treat for all the family to enjoy together.
Toffifee has tasty ingredients for everyone to enjoy: a crunchy hazelnut in a delicious caramel shell, smooth hazelnut spread, plus a drop of rich chocolate.

I remember seeing these in my childhood, but due to them having hazelnut I could never try them.

These I had to give to my parents, as they liked them plus my allergy.

They said they were really nice, and had a lovely flavour and enjoyed them very much.
