Cheddar and Cheesies Gouda
Cheesies

About: Cheesies turn a block of cheese into an outrageously tasty, crunchy snack just by baking it. Literally made from 100% cheese with nothing else added at all, Cheesies are naturally high protein, have no carbs and no sugar at all, and only around 120 calories per serving.

When I spotted these I thought ohhh mmmm they sound and look good, as I do love anything cheese.

Time to pop it open.

The smell just opening the bag was so mmmm yummy, and I took a few in my hand and tried them.

Wow these were just as good as they sounded and looked! these had a nice little crunch to them, then BOOM an explosion of a lovely cheese flavour.

These were gone very fast and I think could be super addictive!!

Highly Recommended.

I do like coconut drinks and also chocolate drinks, so both in one should be a winner?

I poured this out and took a sip, then another hmm

It was nice, but I think its a drink that will either grow on you or not.

For me I think it was just ok.

Chocolate Drumstick
Swizzles Matlow

About: The Drumstick lolly is a childhood classic and we’ve created an updated version, this time with chocolate. Filled with a soft milk flavour with real dried raspberry pieces, covered in milk chocolate, this is a bar you NEED to try!

FB: @SwizzelsMatlow
IG: @swizzels_sweets

Drumsticks a childhood fav for many, we all know the taste and can think of many childhood memories when we had them so I was very interested to try this.

I broke a bit of and took a bite….

I was a little disappointed as it was basically just chocolate bar with raspberry, and didn’t give me any drumstick memories or taste much like one…

Don’t get me wrong it was nice, but there wasn’t that drumstick flavour for me.

This was a nice brand for me and sounded very nice so I couldn’t wait to take a bite 🙂

I took a bit and ohh yum!!

This had a great crunch, and more little crunches due to the crunchy caramel parts. The balance of caramel and chocolate was perfect!

The flavour of this was so good, and I could have easily had another.

I will be looking out for this now in my local supermarket and getting some more.

Draught Cyder 500ml
Aspall

A crisp, medium dry cyder with a delicate aroma and taste of fresh pressed apples. Crafted at the original Cyder House, Suffolk.

FB: @AspallUK
IG: @aspalluk

I do like a wee cider every now and then, so when I saw there was this bottle from Aspall in this months Degusta Box I was very happy.

Firstly this is a good sized bottle, so I popped it in to chill before I had it with my dinner that evening.

I poured myself a nice chilled glass, and took a sip…

This was lovely and light, and had a really nice flavour to it. This was a very nice light cider, that was perfect with my dinner, and for any time really.

I am adding this cider to my list of favs as I enjoyed every sip.

Japanese CurryCup
Noodles Soba

Japanese Curry has a sweet taste of aromatic vegetables, the subtle heat of traditional, Asian herbs and spices, and the incredible aroma of roasted onions. Authentic Japanese.

FB: Nissin Cup Noodles UK
IG: @nissincupnoodles_uk

When I saw this I was a little hesitant, as pod noodle style items I am not really a fan of as they don’t really have great flavour…but I am always up for trying new ones.

I followed the instructions and took a bite.

These were really good, they actually had a really nice flavour! I can easily see myself buying this, as it had a really good flavour.

Maharaja Breakfast Tea
Vahdam Teas

I am not a big tea drinker, but I always try any tea that I get sent and also share them with my mum as she loves her tea.

I boiled the kettle and dunked the tea bag for a few till it got a nice colour.

This was a nice tea, and a nice English Breakfast tea.

For me as I said I am not a massive tea drinker so it was just ok, but if your a tea drinker I am sure you will love this!

Mince Pie Digestives
McVities

Joining this year’s line-up of McVities Chocolate Digestive festive flavours is the new McVitie’s Mince Pie flavour Milk Chocolate Digestives. This classic festive flavour is the perfect pairing for the nation’s number one bestselling biscuit.

As you have seen I have had a few digestives in the last few months, all have been different flavours so when I saw Mince Pie I thought ohhh please be good!

I really like digestives, either the normal chocolate or dark chocolate ones.

I opened the packet and it had an interesting smell…a little cinnamon came through…now it was the time to taste.

I took one, then another hmm for me I didn’t taste Mince Pie, i tasted digestive with a cinnamon and something taste…couldn’t pick out that other taste but it wasn’t Mince Pie

These were ok, the original chocolate ones are still the best

Pipers

At Pipers, we make famously great crisps, but we couldn’t stop there. So, we created Pipers Pitta. Each serving of our crunchy chips combines local, great tasting ingredients with a bespoke baking process.

FB: @pipercrisps
IG: @piperscrisps

Pipers crisps are always good, I have never had a bad bag so when I saw these I couldn’t wait to try these.

I started with the Garlic & Herbs packet, and took one and crunched….

This had a great texture, and really amazing flavour….it was so good the bag was finished very fast 🙂

I then moved on to the Sweet Chilli packet and wow that first crisp packed a wee punch.

After a few the punch wasn’t that bad, and the flavour was really good.

If your a crisp fan you need to check out these and other ones from Pipers as they are always a solid 5 for me.

As you may already know from my other posts on soup, I am not a big soup fan…never have been and its the last dish I will order only if I don’t see anything else on the menu…so when I saw this I was just hmm

I made it and the smell from it was actually very nice, so now it was time to dig in.

Oh…ok this had a nice taste, and I enjoyed every spoonful. I think in the past I have had something from Amy’s Kitchen and I enjoyed it…maybe its just because I have not had good soup till now….so I will check out some of their other products.

I was excited to see a cookie, but then when I spotted it had Hazelnuts so I had to give it to my mum to try since I am allergic.

My mum said it was nice and soft, had a nice texture but flavour wise it was just ok. She did enjoy it and would have it again.
