As ever lots of goodies in this month’s Degustabox. I’d never thought of making my own egg custard, but Green’s Egg Custard Mix makes that easy. Another thing that makes cooking easy is this Knorr Concentrated Stock which is perfect for adding to stews or bolognese sauce to add extra meaty flavour. Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna Steaks are ranked number one in the US by Greenpeace for sustainability which is good to know. I try to make sure all my fish comes from sustainable sources.
Latin American Kitchen by Santa Maria is the perfect thing for those evenings when you need to prepare your food fast. There are five different flavours of rice and five different flavours of sauce to choose from, so there’s plenty of variety.
I’d never really thought about beer having gluten in it, but this San Miguel beer is gluten-free, which is great for those who enjoy a beer and have problems with gluten. Cheerios Oat Crisp makes a crunchy start to the day and it contains beta-glucan from oat fibre which is good for the heart as it helps reduce cholesterol. It’s good that there is such a range of dairy free alternatives to milk now. In this Degustabox we get to try Dream Ancient Grains made from a blend of oat, spelt, buckwheat and linseed. I have a full value voucher to try out Seriously Spreadable Squares which are great for picnics or lunch boxes and they are made from tangy Scottish cheddar. Virtue Energy Water is a naturally sugar-free energy drink with the same amount of natural caffeine as a cup of coffee. Some lovely treats too in this month’s box like the Mentos Mint Mix Sharing Pouch and the Green & Black’s Velvet Edition (I’m not prepared to share that one).
