German Donner Kebab Boss Box (Glasgow) : Review

GIFTED


Last week the guys over at German Doner Kebab (Glasgow), sent me over their Boss Box to try before the main launch.

I had seen them do some promo for this and I was very intrigued so I said yes and arranged the delivery.

I ordered this via Deliveroo app on my iPhone, but the app is also available on the android store.

GDK Boss Box

WOOHOO, the long-awaited BOSS BOX is out NOW. ⁣⠀

The Boss Box Options – A choice of original German Doner Kebab, KCal Kebab, Durum or Lahmacun Wrap served with Doner Spring Rolls OR Chilli Cheese Bites, a side of fries, signature sauces and beverage. ⁣⠀

The guys over at German Doner Kebab GBK were kind enough to gift me this meal the day before the Boss Box launch day.

I couldn’t wait to get it as GDK get a great name for their kebabs, and I was planning on visiting their for the first time then lockdown happened.

My fiancee and I were mega hungry, so we paid for an extra box.⠀

My Box

When ordering this box via Deliveroo, you get to customise it to your liking.

As you can see from the above photo, everything has a specific compartment in the box which is really nice.

For me I chose the following options :

  • Original German Doner Kebab (Mix contents, melted cheese sauce)⠀
  • Chicken Doner Roll⁣⠀
  • Curry Fries⁣⠀
  • Folkington Mango Juice⠀

Order placed, and waited for it to arrive.

The Food

I started with the spring rolls, and they had the perfect crunch and taste for me. I then tried them with the dips, and again they worked perfect with them.

The Original German Doner Kebab was soo good! every bite for me was really good!. I would definitely have this again.

The fries I ordered curry fries, which basically were normal fries with a curry powder dusted over them….for me this was a little bit of a disappointment. I don’t know what I expected but these were just ok.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the boss box.

Firstly a big thanks to the guys at GDK for gifting me the boss box, and compliments to the chefs.

I really enjoyed this from start to finish, and its really good value for money. I was so happy to see that everything was packed so well! The worst thing is when you receive your order and find your food has spilled all over the place… not the case here! nice one guys!!!

I will be ordering this again, and trying a few other dishes from them either at home or when lockdown end.

Guys check it out and let me know what you think.

Sons Men’s DHT Blocking Shampoo : Product Review

Gifted


The Shampoo

Our shampoo is formulated with saw palmetto which can help reduce levels of DHT in the scalp (a hormone that can cause hair loss) and it also contains argan oil, iron and vitamin B3.

During hair loss, DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is an androgen hormone that binds to the hair follicles leading to hair shrinkage and loss.  During this process DHT reduces the growth phase of hair which makes the follicles become finer, shorter and eventually in severe/late stage hair loss there the follicles do not exit the growth phase. Our shampoo similar to Finasteride works by blocking DHT and preventing hair loss.

The guys at Sons sent me an email asking me if I would like to try their product, I said as its always fun to try new things.

The shampoo arrived and it was time to try it out.

I have to state I am mid 30’s and happy to say I don’t currently have any hair loss but as you see from the above quote it helps prevent the hair-loss.

I decided every morning for a week use this shampoo before doing the review, as thats only fair as I like to try something first and give honest reviews.

Some shampoos I have used in the past left my hair feeling dead after using them, but all week my hair felt great and smelled great to.

I didnt notice any stinging in my eyes so thats a win, and no irritation to my skin on my head of forehead so another win for me as I have sensitive skin.

As I mentioned I don’t have hair loss…yet but this is also a preventative shampoo so thats why I agreed to try the product.

I have used this for about one week, and my hair feels great and also has a nice smell to it.

A big thanks to sons for sending me this product, and I have no issues recommending this to use or if you are starting to experience some hair loss.

I will continue to use the bottle Son’s sent me 🙂

The coffee…

The guys over at Calm sent me a wee email asking if I would like to try some of their CBD infused coffee, I have never had anything infused with CBD (Cannabidiol) so I said yes please as its always fun to try something new.

The Gift

The guys sent me the following :

  • 2 x CBD Infused Cold Brew Coffee (Americano)
  • 2 x CBD Infused Cold Brew Coffee (Oat Milk Caffe Latte)
  • 1 x CBD Ground Coffee

This was loads 🙂 and now it was time to try them.

CBD-Infused Cold Brew Coffee

I decided to start with one of the Cold Brew Coffee’s and take it to work, and try it at my lunch break.

As I said before I have never tried any CBD infused anything, so this would be interesting.

I opened the can, and took a smell wow very nice a strong coffee smell and then I took a sip…

This was very nice, it tasted just like a nice cool refreshing Americano but obviously had the extra CBD benefits. I like a good strong coffee, so this was perfect for me and I enjoyed for the rest of the day.

The next day I took the Latte in to work, and chilled it for lunch.

This again was very nice to, and had a really nice flavour. For me the Americano was better, but I tend to drink my coffee’s black.

Overall I really liked these and they were perfect for on the go, or like me at work.

The Ground Coffee :

As you can see from the photo the front of the bag has little holes, just smelling that area wow the coffee was so so nice and I couldn’t wait to make myself a cup…or two.

I popped open the bag and BANG the smell of this coffee hit me and was amazing! I could see from the bag this was Brazilian coffee, so now I know what it was.

Now for the taste…

So as I said from above I like my coffee black, plus since I was testing this I had to have it as is for a proper review so it was a win win for me.

Again the smell was the first thing to hit me, then the taste and wow I have to say this was a REALLY good coffee I loved its flavour…..I actually had 3 cups that’s how good it was.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the product.

I don’t know what CBD tastes like, but I do know how coffee tastes and this was good coffee. I couldn’t say if I tasted anything different, but for me it was a really nice tasting coffee in all products.

For me the winners were the Americano and the Ground Coffee, and I have been having a cup or two of the Calm Ground Coffee in the morning before going to work.

I would like to say a BIG thank you to Calm Drinks, for sending me the coffee and giving me my first experience of CBD infused coffee.

I have no issues recommending this to you so please do check them out here : www.calmdrinks.co.uk and let me know what you think if you get some coffee.
