Esprala : Apple & Plum

“wonderfully refreshing and lightly sparking vegan fruit drink”

This smelled really nice and wow very very nice to taste. As they say it is really refreshing and fruity and I enjoyed every sip.

I could easily have this again, and if I see it in the shops its one I will be buying again.

Mallow & Marsh : Vanilla Marshmallow bar coated in Milk Chocolate

I am not a big Marshmallow fan but I decided to give this a shot.

For me personally it was actually ok, the chocolate was very nice and it worked with the marshmallow.

Overall and its a personal thing I don’t think I would have this again, but as I said I am not a marshmallow fan.

Maynards Bassetts : Fruit Smoothie Jellies

Visually these looked like they would be lovely just from the package….so now it was time to taste.

I don’t know why, but I expected these to be a little harder in texture but I was so glad they weren’t as they were lovely and soft and packed with flavour.

This bag was finished very fast as they were really nice, and lovely flavours.

PITCH : Bloc’O’Choc

This was another product from the DegustaBox that just looking at the packaging I couldn’t wait to open.

I love brioche and I love chocolate, so the two combined had to be a winning combo?

I tried one as is and one warmed up, and both were AMAZING!!! the brioche and the chocolate mmmmm

I highly recommend these!!!

Enervit Protein Bar

Normally these types of bars I don’t tend to buy or enjoy, they either are super dry or zero flavour….or worse both so I was very hesitant when trying this one.

Ohh I was very surprised with this as it had both flavour and nice and smooth.

I really enjoyed this and if your searching for a nice protein bar then this one is 100% for you.

Kellogs Crunch Nut Peanut Butter

I love peanut butter, and could easily say I am addicted to the stuff so when I saw this and from Kellogg’s ohhh I couldn’t wait to pop a slice of toast on and get spreading.

WOW this was perfection in a jar!!!

Its smooth and crunchy at the same time, perfectly sweet, amazing flavour just so so good!!!

This is now my favourite peanut butter and I HEIGHLY recommend it if you love peanut butter.

A solid 5/5

Brynmor Flapjacks : Apple & Raspberry

I love flapjacks, and love trying new ones and this brand for me was new to me.

Taste time…

Oh wow this was very nice, the flavour of the apple and raspberry was subtle but just enough and the texture perfect.

This is another product from this months DegustaBox that I would buy again.

Organic Cheerios : Honey & Chocolate Cereal

I have never had Cheerios before and was interested to see how these tasted especially since they are organic.

I popped open the box and poured out some cereal for my breakfast.

Ohh these were lovely, they had a nice subtle flavour and a nice little crunch to them.

I could see me easily buying these as a nice change from time to time from my usual cereal.

Lucozade : Tropical (zero sugar)

I like grabbing a bottle of Lucozade every now and then, so I was very happy to see this one plus it was zero sugar and Tropical flavour sounded yum

I don’t mind drinks that are zero sugar, most taste ok….granted some very bland so it would be interesting to try this one.

I decided to take this to work, and enjoy it during my day.

Ohh wow this was lovely, the zero sugar did not impact on taste and it was very tropical mmm I can see myself getting this again and again.

Hippeas : Chickpea Puff Snacks (Salt & Vinegar)

I have had Hippeas products before and enjoyed them.

I have had this one before and just like last time they were nice.

The salt and vinegar flavour is very subtle, and the texture is really good. Personally if the flavour was just a little bit strong they would have been perfect….but that’s a personal thing.

Filippo Berio : Extra Virgin Oil & Balsamic Vinegar

I have been doing a lot of home cooking recently and always use olive oil, so when I saw this I thought woohoo lets try that next time I cook (see my recipes here)

This was lovely oil, and worked really well with my home cooking.

I have still to use the balsamic vinegar, but I have a few ideas what I can use it on or with so keep watching my posts.

Mug Shot : Mighty Chicken & Mushroom Noodles


Who doesn’t love a quick and easy snack, so I popped the top and added the hot water and waited…

oh boy, now before I start this is a personal taste review so please do try it and see what you think.

For me there was very little flavour, and I even tried adding some salt but still for me it lacked flavour. It also left me with an after taste for a while after I finished it.

Smarties : Orange Chocolate Sharing Block

They say this is a sharing block, but I didn’t share this one as I needed a chocolate fix.

Who doesn’t love smarties, and who doesn’t love chocolate orange so lets see how this is…

Yum Yum Yum Yum!!! this was soo good! the flavour the texture everything about it was perfect and very moreish.

I will 100% be getting this again.

The Goodies

Mallow Puffs : Salted Caramel Mallow Bar

“Super-puffy vegan salted caramel mallow bar dunked in Belgian dark chocolate”

How cute does this packaging look? or is it just me?

This sounded very very nice, as I love salted caramel 🙂 so I couldn’t wait to unwrap and take a bite.

This tasted really good, my only issue was I couldn’t really tasted the salted caramel as the Belgian chocolate over powered it….but this was MEGA nice.

TREK POWER Millionaire Shortbread

“each bar is covered in a natural chocolate alternative, 15g protein and is 100% plant based ingredients”

I love a nice millionaire shortbread, so I was intrigued as to how this one would taste since its plant based.

Ohhh I am very impressed with this as it tasted MUCH nicer than I expected, the chocolate was nice and the overall flavour was good.

I could easily have this again.

St Pierre Brioche Waffle

I was introduced to St Pierre in a previous Degusta Box, and really liked it so when I saw two products again from them I was very excited to try them.

I love Brioche, I love waffles so this should be good…

AMAZING!!!

The Brioche, the sugar mmmmm SO SO SO SO SO GOOD!!!!!!

Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles Sharing Pouch

“Vegan friendly sweets that are chewy, fruity and irresistible”

I have not had Fruit Pastilles since I was a kid, so this brought back a lot of memories.

Just as they describe they are chewy, fruit flavoured and very addictive as you just want to take more and more 🙂

Barleycup

“made from cereal grains and chicory roots”

This was a nice find for me as I like an alternative to coffee, as I have been using another bran that does this style of drink since last January.

Time to make my Barleycup….kettle on…..

It tasted just like I expected since I have tried a similar brand.

If your looking to cut back on your coffee intake and fancy a nice alternative then check these guys out.

Mister Free’d Avocado Tortilla Chips

These sounded very interesting to me, and one that I was and wasnt looking forward to trying due to the Avocado flavour…

I took a few in my hand and ate them…

I couldn’t have been so wrong!! these were actually REALLY good, the flavour was really nice and I will 1000% be buying these when I see them again.

Gregory’s Tree Organic Strawberry Fruit Twists

I have never seen or heard of these before so it was going to be fun trying these.

These were very nice, the strawberry flavour was just perfect and also the texture of the twist was really nice.

These were finished very fast 🙂

Whitworths Shots Fruity Biscuits

These sounded very nice and I was looking forward to try this.

I opened the packet and oh not what I was expecting….I was expecting either a liquid or a biscuit with the fruit through it….but nope its just a packet with the fruit as it is.

I popped it all in my mouth and enjoyed it, and this is another one if I see it again I will buy it 🙂

NAT Bears Cereal

Firstly how cute is that box, and how cute is the bear drawing.

This has 6 packets inside and this boxes flavour was Honey.

The ingredients are sourced from natural origins, no artificial colours or flavours and wholegrain oat as their number 1 ingredient.

I poured milk in to my bowl, and placed a bear inside.

This had a really nice flavour, and the honey flavour was very very nice.

Grey Poupon Dijon Vegan Mayo

Grey Poupon launched a new Vegan Dijon Mustard Mayo and it was included in this months DegustaBox.

I decided to make my self a sandwich and use this mayo, I made a chicken slice sandwich and dug right in.

This was very nice, the flavour of the mustard mayo was very nice. It wasnt overpowering or left an aftertaste in my mouth.

If you like mustard but find it just a tad too strong for you, then I highly recommend this.

Baker Street Rye & Wheat Bread

I have never tried Rye bread before so this would be a first.

Since I was making a sandwich for the Dijon Mustard Mayo, I used the Baker street bread for this.

Hmmm I really liked the flavour of the bread, and its texture.

I could easily see myself buying this again, as it was a nice change from what I normally buy

Lizi’s Focus and Boost Super Muesli

I cant remember the last time I had Muesli or even if I have ever tried it so this would be interesting.

One of these contained nuts so I had to skip that one, but I did try the Boost one.

I emptied the packet into a bowl, and poured some milk in…

This was an interesting texture and taste for me, I finished the bowl.

I dont think Muesli is for me, it lacked taste for me but I am sure if your into this you would liked this.

Sun-Pat Smooth Peanut Butter

I have been addicted to peanut butter recently, so when I saw this in this months DegustaBox I was very happy as I have not tried this one yet.

I got the smooth one, where some other Degusta Box peoples got crunchy…now this splits people down the middle what is better? smooth or chunky? for me I am a chunky fan but I was still looking forward to try thing this.

The smell of Peanut butter on warm toast is so mmmm

Ohhh this was very nice, it had a really nice flavour and very moreish hmmm could this change my mind about chunky being better hmmm thats a tough one.
