I love caramelised onions, and love them on my burgers etc so when I saw this in this months box I was very excited to try them

As soon as I popped the jar open, the lovely smell hit me and I knew I would love this.

I tasted a little and wow, it was smooth and just sweet enough that I knew it wouldn’t over power everything and had a lovely flavour…I couldn’t wait to try this on my chicken burger tonight.

I added it to my chicken burger and took a nice big bite, and mmm this added to the flavour of everything and was perfectly balanced and soo soo good.

Highly recommended if you like caramelised onions!!!

Cheese Oatcakes
Nairn’s

About : Nairn’s Cheese Oatcakes, like all Nairn’s products, are made with wholegrain oats and only the best, very simple ingredients. Oats are something of a super food – high in fibre, which helps keep our gut healthy and can make them a great alternative to wheat products. And they taste great!

Every now and then I get a wee craving for some cheese and crackers and when I saw this in this month Degustabox I was very happy.

I decided to make crackers with cheese and caramelised onion, as that’s always a fav of mine.

I took a bite and mmm this was so good, you had the lovely texture of the cracker followed by the flavours of the topping…it was a great bite so I made myself some more.

If you are a cracker fan I highly recommend these.

Normally when I buy seasoning I buy these individually, so combined am sure would taste just as nice.

I cracked it open and took a sniff…ohh this had a lovely smell to it and I could feel the chilli

I used this as part of a meat rub, and I have to say mmmm this gave that extra mmm to the taste of the pork and had a lovely little kick at the end of each mouthful.

I will be using this again soon.

McVitie’s The Fully Coated Ones Chocolate Digestive / Chocolate Hobnobs
McVities

About : The Fully Coated Ones take McVitie’s famous golden-baked biscuits and enrobe them completely from top-to-toe in deliciously thick milk chocolate to create a biscuit collection that’s truly extra-special.

Each bite offers the perfect combination of delicious crunchy biscuit and even more of McVitie’s signature silky- smooth, milk chocolate.

Every now and then I like a wee cheeky digestive or hobnob, so when I saw this was in this months Degustabox I was very happy.

Personally for me Hobnobs always win over digestives, but I do like both but Hobnobs much more.

Both of these are extremely yummy, they are coated in smooth milk chocolate and have that crunch we all love. The flavours are as you would expect, perfect and great on their own or dunked into a tea.

PASSION FRUIT LIQUEUR
Passoa

Another new brand and I couldn’t wait to check it out.

This sounded very nice, so I thought let’s chill it and try it after my dinner.

This was very nice and the passion fruit flavour was just perfect, I could easily see this drink be used in many different cocktails.

If I see this in the shops I am going to be purchasing it.

FB: @RadnorInfusions
IG: @Radnor_Infusions

I love flavoured water as thats basically what I drink all week while at work, so I was very interested to see how this was and if it tasted as good as it sounded.

I put this in to chill for a little, then popped it open and poured in to my glass.

I took a few sips, and was pleasantly surprised. It was nice but the flavour was just a hint for me where I would have preferred it just a little stronger.

I enjoyed this a lot, just for me and my palate the flavours could have been just a little stronger.

Overall very refreshing, nice taste and zero sugars which is always good.

These sounded very nice, but I had to play safe as I do have a nut allergy so I gave them to my parents to try.

This packet didn’t last long, they absolutely loved these and said they cant wait to buy more.

We all love a good bottle sauce, either with our dinner or on a sandwich.

I love a nice nice sandwich sauce and when I spotted this I was thinking hmm what can I make and use this.

I made myself a nice ham sandwich and put this on it, and ohhh this was very very nice.

It didn’t take away from my ham flavour but added that nice little extra to the whole bite.

I will now be trying this on many different things 🙂

This was 100% new to me, I have never heard of this product or seen it before so I was very interested to find out what it was like.

I opened the packet and pulled one out, and opened it. It was already cracked but I didn’t mind as I would be breaking it to try anyway.

I took a bite and wow this was so tasty! it was flaky sweet and had a lovely subtle orange flavour…I REALLY liked this!!

I also tried this was some cheese and again it worked perfectly!

I cant wait to buy this when I see it in the shops.
