Olives aren’t for everyone, but I’ve developed more of a taste for them over the years. I love that these OLOVES come in handy packs and the stones have been removed. Just olives seasoned with a little chilli, garlic and oregano. For a summer snack there’s Ryvita Thins Three Cheese in this summer Degustabox. They are topped with cheddar, regato and emmental cheeses – mmmm! I find these Merchant Gourmet Simply Cooked Red & White Quinoa perfect for getting a quick lunch together. I also like the fact that Weetabix are jazzing up their traditional cereal with this Weetabix Additions Coconut & Raisin variety. Another little treat was the Rowntree’s Randoms 30% Less Sugar are a perfect treat to share – we used ours to keep children going on a long walk.
Blossom Hill Spritz is the perfect accompaniment to a long summer evening. Serve nicely chilled and I quite like serving it with ice too. This is a lovely light drink because of the mixture of fruity flavours with the wine. I tried the Elderflower & Lemon version which was very refreshing. Another drink with a fruity flavour is the Crafted Mango & Passionfruit Fruit Juice Drink and again I’d recommend serving it chilled and over ice. A very welcome surprise was the full price voucher for a tub of The Collective’s yoghurt. After trying their yoghurt through a previous Degustabox voucher I’ve become a bit of a fan, so I’m keen to give The Collective Kids Big Tub Yoghurt a try. THOR is another brand we’ve tried before through Degustabox. I’m loving the Apple Spritz with its ginger zing.
Also, in this month’s box, we’re trialling Maille Dijon Original mustard that I plan to team up with a nice steak. For cooking I’ve been using this Frylight Cooking Spray with Avocado Oil. I’ve been impressed how little I have to use and it works well with a range of different cooking techniques.
