Hyboflask- Water bottle 600ml (Amazon) : Review

GIFTED


  • Color : Black
  • Material Type : Stainless Steel
  • Volume Capacity : 600 ml
  • Brand Name : Hyboflask

The Flask

Firstly I took a look at the packaging, the logo was very cool as the middle line in the H reminded me of a wave. The box also showed me the other colours you can get, but I had went for black.

When I took the Hyboflask out the box, it had a nice protective cover which you could keep on or take off.

To be honest the flask looks good with and without the protective cover.

The Contents

In the box along with the Hyboflask you get :

1 x Bamboo Cap
1 x Drinking Lid and straw
1 x Cup cover
1 x Cleaning Brush
1 x Mountaineering Buckle

The bottle

The top of the bottle has a fold-down straw and secures very tight. The seal around the top of the bottle is also very good, as I have not had any leaks and I shook it around a lot to test.

The Hyboflask has a double-walled exterior with a vacuum seal between the walls. This means your drink will stay at its ideal temperature for hours.

Hyboflask is made from Stainless steel, and the bottle is free from other chemicals that are normally found in plastic bottles e.g. BPA or other toxins.

The flask will fit in standard size cup holders, and even fits in the holders in your car.

Test Drive :

I had to take this bottle for a test drive, as its the only was I can do a proper honest review.

I started with a cold drink, and took it to my work. I decided to leave it till around lunch time to see if it stayed cold and yup it started very cool.

Next day I took a warm coffee to work, and again left it till lunch time to see how it was and yup as expected nice and warm. I will be doing this more often, so I can have a nice coffee at work.

I took it on several walks in the park, and longer walks and again no leaks and a nice cool drink when I needed it.

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 Hyboflask.

As I said I took the bottle for a test drive.

I have no issues with this bottle, it kept my cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm. I experienced no leaks, which is good as I kept it in my backpack or on its side in my car etc..

If your looking to upgrade your current flask, or to get one that is really good and very cool looking then this is the one for you.

QUARTERPAST Coffee Syrups : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at Quarterpast sent me some of their coffee syrups to try.

The pack they sent me was the Q Coffee Syrups Mixed 250mL (4 Pack)

  • Caramel
  • Salted Caramel
  • Hazelnut
  • Vanilla

About Quarterpast Syrups

Delicious flavours crafted to give your homemade coffees a boost and turn them into café quality drinks you can enjoy everywhere! Make yourself a delicious flavoured coffee:

To Make: Fill 10% of a cup with your favourite QUARTERPAST Coffee Syrup flavour, top the remaining 90% of the cup with piping hot coffee, stir & enjoy!

Quarterpast Caramel Syrup for Coffee

Who doesn’t love caramel? On its own, it’s wickedly tempting. In coffee, it’s irresistible. That deep, rich sweetness really perks things up. Next time you fancy a little something in your coffee, reach for caramel.

I started with this one, and followed the instructions to make my coffee.

Wow this was good!!! I had my coffee taste mixed with caramel and it was nice and sweet, which was perfect as I have a sweet tooth. I actually finished my coffee faster than normal, due to enjoying the taste.

QUARTERPAST Hazelnut Syrup for Coffee

Next time, add hazelnut to your caffeine kick. A favourite in Europe, hazelnut nuzzles up to the flavour notes of coffee perfectly. Sweet, rich and nutty – it’s like liquid biscotti. You’ll love it!

To be honest with you, this is the only one I didnt try as I cant do nuts. So I got my fiancee to review this one for me.

She said that it made her coffee taste like she had real roasted hazelnuts in her coffee, and the flavour was very moreish.

QUARTERPAST Salted Caramel Syrup for Coffee

Enjoy the rich and buttery flavours of caramel perfectly balanced with a pinch of sea salt. Treat yourself every morning with a delicious cup of salty caramel latte!

WOW!!!! now this one is my favourite!!!! my coffee tasted amazing, and I actually had 3 the morning I tried this.

Just like the caramel I finished my coffee’s faster than normal as I was really enjoying the enhanced flavour.

A solid 10/10 for me.

QUARTERPAST butterscotch Syrup for Coffee

Butterscotch Syrup for Coffee is an ideal sweetener for that ideal coffee, just swirl some of this syrup into your drink and let the flavours take you to a sweeter place.

This added a nice subtle flavour to my coffee, and as the description says a nice sweetener. This one was probably my second favourite as it just added a little extra flavour, but keeping the main coffee flavour.

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 syrups.

Firstly a big thank you to the guys at Quarterpast UK for sending me the coffee syrups.

All these syrups were really good, and did enhance my coffee experience.

My top two were 100% the Salted Caramel, this was the first one finished. My second would have to be the butterscotch, as it just enhanced the coffee but left a nice balanced coffee flavour.

I have no issues recommending these syrups, they are packaged well, taste good and I enjoyed drinking them.

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.
