Delicious Delicacies Treat Box (Glasgow, East End) : Review

GIFTED


The girls at Delicious Delicacies gifted me with one of their treat boxes recently.⠀

They have recently launched (June 24th 2020) and asked me to check out their Treat Box.⠀

They do fresh home-made baking, and all profits go to @parkheadnazarene and @the.charter which is a really nice thing to do.⠀

I have now finished the box, and can honestly say wow.⠀

About

The Treat Box

Oreo Cupcakes (x2)

Visually they looked really good, and the flavour was really good. The cupcake was nice, and had a really good flavour and was my favourite from the whole box.⠀

Malteser Slab

I bit into this and mmm the base, the topping and the Maltese’s a perfect bite.⠀

Another one that was mega moreish.

Empire Biscuit & the Iced Biscuit

Both were really nice, and had a good favour to them. I would have liked just a little more jam, but I have a sweet tooth and that’s my personal preference.⠀

Tablet

Tablet can be hit or miss, either just so so or way too sugary. For me, this was really good, smooth and mega moreish. ⠀

Meringue

This was MASSIVE! but light and soft and the cream inside again a perfect bite. ⠀

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 treat box.

Mama’s Kitchen Takeaway (Glasgow, West End) : Review

GIFTED


Mama’s Kitchen messaged me recently and asked if I would like to try one of their Indian Street Food Boxes.

I couldn’t wait for this to arrive, as they teased me with a photo and it looked it amazing and my mouth started to water.

They were kind enough to bring it to my flat, and I got a chance to speak to Mama’s Kitchen.

The girl is lovely, bubbly and very friendly…I am blessed being a blogger and meeting so many nice people and most I have met I have kept in touch with which is really nice.

Now it was time to eat

Street Food Box

Firstly the presentation was amazing, I loved how it was delivered and the layout.

How good does this look, everything has a place and its really pleasing on the eye.

It consists of the following:

Chickpea Salad

I started with this.

To begin with this looked very eye catching, the colours and presentation.

This was very nice, it had lovely flavours and I liked the mix of soft and crunchy.

Spicy Garam Masala Potatoes

I loved the presentation of the potatoes, the little boat….again they have really thought well about presentation.

I am not a big potato fan but these had a very nice flavour, and they were perfectly cooked.

I ate a lot of these 🙂

Chicken Pakora

I am a big chicken pakora fan, but depending where you go these differ from the taste, the crispiness of the batter etc etc

These were perfect! the batter just crispy, the flavour was really good and the chicken was very tender….just perfect!

I could have easily had more of these.

Spiced onions and poppadoms

What can you say about spiced onions and poppadoms? they are the perfect nibble, starter etc and these were really nice.

Lamb Mince and Pea Samosas

These were big and looked good, and smelled really good.

These had a nice little kick to them, and tasted really nice. They reminded me of Cornish pasties, if that helps give you an idea what they are like, but with a nice kick.

Tandoori Chicken Wraps

At first I thought its just a wrap, and then I took a bite!!

I took a bite and this was a game changer, the flavour was amazing!!! every bite was just yummmm so much so I had the majority of the wraps…oops!

This was my fav 🙂

Fruit Chaat

And theres more…

There is always room for a little more, and this was a nice end to tonights meal.

The mix of fruits etc plus the sauce at the bottom this was a nice ending.

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 food.

Firstly a big thank you to Mama’s Kitchen, the food presentation and meeting you were amazing.

The presentation is amazing, its something we spoke about for a while after we had finished the meal. The food was also really good, and my fav was that wrap….mmmm I could have easily had many more of those and the Chicken Pakora.

Everything was presented nicely, tasted amazing and I highly recomend you order from them. Just visit their instagram page and send them a message.

I have now added Mama’s Kitchen to my top spots page for takeaways!!

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.
