The arrival of the monthly Degustabox always leads to a bit of excitement in our house. There’s usually something new to try, in fact quite a few things. We like to see what we like and what we might like to buy in the future.
The Nuttvia Breadsticks Snackpack was virtually inhaled by my son not long after this picture was taken. Unsurprisingly the combination of breadsticks with chocolate and hazelnut spread went down incredibly well. Feel Good Drinks Water Infusions were for me to enjoy. I have to say I preferred the Orange, Mango and Water to the Strawberry and Mint. Kabuto Noodles Thai Green Chicken Curry are a favourite lunch time treat – they are so quick and tasty too. The Pulsin Kids’ Fruity Oat Bars Orange Choc Chip made an appearance in my son’s lunchbox and the empty wrapper was returned which is good news as anything not eaten usually comes back. I like that it doesn’t contain too much sugar (for a fruit snack) and it’s high in fibre too. When the Heinz No Added Sugar Hoops came out of the box, I realised that I hadn’t introduced my son to hoops at all, so we were soon able to put that right. Valfrutta offered a ready to eat Mediterranean meal. I had the Basmati Rice & Lentils and it was very tasty – so convenient too.
I was so pleased to see the Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs as I’ve had these before and they are very moreish. Likewise my son was chuffed to bits to see Pechkeks Misfortune Cookies for the same reason. We’ve had a box before and he was very taken with them – they are a slightly different take on the fortune cookie and recommended for Halloween or if you just want a bit of fun. I’m afraid I’ve never been that keen on Vimto, but my brother loves it and he was very happy to try this Vimto Millions Gift Jar and gave them the thumbs up. We had some spare ribs in the freezer so we dug them out for the Lee Kum Kee Sauce For Honey Garlic Spare Ribs and they were delicious. We also got a Lee Kum Kee Sauce For Tomato Garlic Prawns which we have yet to try. Now my son is adding salt to his food it’s good to have a healthier alternative available so we were happy to try the LoSalt, which has 66% less sodium. A couple of very moreish treats to finish on. Pip’s Real Hot Chocolate Co Real Hot Chocolate Coins make delicious hot chocolate and are so easy. They were the perfect match for Michel et Augustin‘s oversized cookies with chocolate chips.
