For me this month’s selection in the Degustabox was strongest on the drinks front. This month we have enjoyed some very refreshing cider from The Good Cider of San Sebastian. This brand was new to us, but we’d happily pick it out again when we are buying cider. Sweet Sally Spiced Tea was the one that had my name on it as I am a big tea drinker. I liked the mix of refreshing tea and autumnal/wintry spices, plus a hint of citrus.
I really like the idea of breakfast in a drink, especially for days when I have to catch an early train to a blogging event or similar. These ones from Up&Go are less sweet than some, because I have found other brands to be a bit too sugary for my taste first thing in the morning.
The extra virgin oil from The Olive Shop is just the thing for late summer/early autumn salads with its strong, almost fruity taste. Perfect for a quick weekday lunch the Kent’s Kitchen Spicy Szechuan Posh Noodles have filled the middle of the day hole for me in a very tasty fashion. Friends and family have enjoyed helping us sample some sweet treats including Bassetts Jelly Babies ‘Berry Mix’ and Maynards Reds and Blacks Wine Gums (there’s a reason why these two flavours are everyone’s favourite). Mallow and Marsh provided an indulgent treat for those with a sweet tooth and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have been a popular choice.
