A new Degustabox is always a cause for a bit of excitement. I’m always intrigued to know what goodies we have got each month. Our box was waiting for us when we got back from holiday and I was very happy to see that our morning breakfast was catered for with Pains au Chocolat from Brioche Pasquier (we buy quite a few of their products and these were as good as we expected) plus Weetabix On The Go (with extra protein) for a quick breakfast (and a little longer in bed to recover from the jet lag). We didn’t have to worry about being out of milk either because we had some Good Hemp Original, which is a dairy free alternative to milk.
There were some tasty snacks too. Metcalfe’s skinny popcorn is giving us a chance to have a guilt free snack at 93 calories per portion – we have a few pounds to lose after 2 weeks in Florida. The sweetness in Metcalfe’s comes from natural stevia leaf extract. Hubby made a bee line for the Pipers Crisps: it seems he’s come across their tasty crisps before. Keeping healthy doesn’t have to mean dull and boring taste sensations as Kallow Quinoa and Seeds Multigrain Cakes and their Milk Chocolate Rice Cake Rounds proved. With a taste of the Mediterranean we like the Karyatis Meze To Go which is a hand snack for lunch boxes and picnics. Parle make some lovely biscuits and their Hide & Seek product was new to me, but very delicious. I love stuffing as an addition to a roast dinner, but it’s sometimes a bit too much trouble to make my own. Kent’s Kitchen have the answer though as their tasty stuffings are easy to make up with water and just need baking. Chewitts are a great sweet to have in your pocket to keep you going between meals and I’ve found they are very popular when you offer them around too.
We’d missed out on Easter a little by being away so it was a lovely touch to have a delicious Lindt White Chocolate Gold Bunny to enjoy on our return.
