I look forward to my monthly Degustabox delivery: there’s something about being surprised and there’s always something new to try. This month’s went down very well. In fact, I barely saw the Orangina before it was whisked away as refreshment for a trip to the park. My son really enjoyed it. He did leave behind the Twisted Halo for me to enjoy. This flavour was Coconut Water, Ginger & Vodka and all the flavourings are natural and there’s no added sugar or sweeteners. It’s very refreshing and best served chilled. My niece and nephew loved the JellySqueeze and are keen to have it again. It’s a great lunchbox treat. The Bahlsen PICK UP! Black ‘N White are a delicious update to a favourite snack: a white chocolate bar sandwiched between two crisp chocolate flavour biscuits.
As you might expect from a household with a child in it, the Refreshers Softies were greeted with enthusiasm: my son is a big Refreshers fan. We both loved the Cadbury Curlywurly Squirlies in a handy shareable bag. The Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Toffee Whole Nut was all mine though and very moreish. Light Bites Popped Chips are great for snacking without piling on the calories as they are under 100 calories a pack. They’re also gluten-free and there are no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise is a really useful store cupboard ingredient, but I must admit I prefer the jars to these bottles. Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce is the mildest variety in the Tabasco range, so this is a bit of heat without blowing your head off.
I do like a crinkle cut crisp and Seabrook Crisps are very tasty. A selection pack is always useful because not everyone likes the same varieties. Maggi Fusian Noodles are a great way of getting a quick and tasty noodles: they are ready to eat in just 4 minutes.
