I love a good bowl of cereal in the morning, and when I saw you can add this to cereal I thought I will try that out in the morning.

I poured my cereal and added this on top, sat down and had my breakfast.

I tried some of this on its own, and it was ok…not too much flavour but it’s to add some extra protein, fibre to my morning bowl.

It was ok, I couldn’t taste it with my cereal but if it’s giving me more fibre and protein then that’s a win for me.

I love the Degusta Box as it allows me to try products that are great and also new to me.

This was another new brand and I couldn’t wait to try it and see how it tasted.

I first tried one on its own and then with a few different toppings like cheese, meat, caramelised onions etc and they all tasted really good.

This is another product I will be looking out for when I go to the supermarket.

I think this bar was in a previous Degusta Box but I didn’t mind as they are a great healthy snack.

I took a bite and remembered how much I liked it from the last time I tasted it.

Just like last time, I enjoyed every bite and also the nice flavour…chocolate orange is one of my fav flavours so I was very happy.

Low Sugar Granola Wholegrain Oats, Almonds and Seeds by Eat Natural

About: All the indulgence and variety of a great granola with a fraction of the sugar. The secret? Coconut nectar blossom, which brings a natural sweetness to plump whole grain oats, whole toasted almonds, crunchy buckwheat and creamy sunflower seeds. A generous scattering of toasted coconut shavings adds natural fibre.

FB: @EatNaturalBars
IG: @eatnaturalbars

I was looking forward to trying this, but then I spotted almonds which I cant take…so I gave it to my parents to try and for them to tell me what they thought.

They told me this was very nice, and they used it with Greek Yogurt and it was very tasty.

Oat Barista by Califia Farms

FB: @califiafarmsuk
IG: @califiafarmsuk

I have tried milk alternatives and really like soya, but I have never tried any Oat products so this would be new for me.

Since it mentioned “Barista” I made myself a coffee and poured this into a frother to then pour into my coffee.

This was really nice!

It tastes creamy but doesn’t have a strong flavour, it has a long shelf life (over a year before opening and 5 days after opening) and can be used in lots of different ways.

I will be trying this in other hot drinks.

Tonight I wanted to make something different, and I decided to make Spaghetti Bolignaise and I would use this product.

I was a bad blogger and forgot to take photos, but I can tell you it tasted really good. The sauce was thick and rich in taste.

I highly recommend this to use with your recipes and home cooking.

Roasted Hazelnut Chocolate bar by Prodigy Snacks

IG: @prodigysnacks

Oh another chocolate bar….I was very excited but then I spotted it had hazelnuts so this was another one I would pass on to my parents to try and review for me.

They really liked it and liked the texture and crunch, my dad really liked the roasted hazelnut flour he found that came through very nicely.

Sour Cream and Chive Lentil ring (100g) by Harvest Snaps

About: Vegan Sour Cream and Chive Ring. Temptingly crunchy, oven-baked veggie snacks. These moreish red lentil rings with real onion are lovingly seasoned with vegan sour cream and chive seasoning. Deliciously mouth-watering. The perfect flavour combination of tangy, creamy, sour cream and savoury onion, garlic and chives and totally vegan.

IG: @harvestsnaps_uk

Ohhh crisps I love crisps, they are the snack you can easily have any time of the day.

This was a new brand for me, and I noticed they were only 88 calories so I knew I wouldn’t feel bad after opening and finishing them.

I opened the packet and a nice chive smell hit me…ohh these were going to be good I could tell.

I took a few and mmmm so good! they had a lovely flavour and texture and were extremely moreish!

Yip… I was bad and finished the packet in one sitting.

FB: doctorwills
IG: doctor_wills

I do love adding sauce to my burgers or on the side of the plate depending on what I have made myself for dinner.

I was very interested to try this since its “all natural”

You can really taste the difference with this, its a nice flavour and I actually prefer this to my other bottles.

I will be getting this again when I finish this.

Vitamin B12 Pink Grapefruit drink by Get More Vits

About: Crisp and refreshing Pink Grapefruit flavoured water not only tastes delicious but contains 5μg of vitamin B12 per bottle, that’s 200% of your recommended daily amount. Vitamin B12 helps tackle tiredness and fatigue, whilst supporting the immune and nervous systems. Sugar-free, low calorie and made with real pink grapefruit extract!

FB: getmorevits
IG: @getmorevits

I was introduced to Get more Vits in a previous Degusta Box so I was happy to see the brand again.

I saw that it was Pink Grapefruit and thought hmmm not too sure if I will like it, but I am always up for trying something at least once.

I poured it out and took a few sips…oh ok this is not what I was expecting.

The flavour was actually very nice and not sour as I had imagined it would be.

I really enjoyed this, the flavour was fresh and would happily get this when I see it in the shops.
