Hi there and welcome to another degustabox first impressions. Y'all know my love for this foodie box and how hooked I am to be given this opportunity to try out new products month after month for only £12.99. Most of you know I cancelled most of my subscription services but left this one and couple other sub boxes,this proves how much I love this sub box.
When my September box arrived I was away in Zambia so I had no idea what to expect. When I arrived I had to move house immediately after work (the very day I arrived - greatly plan huh!) I was so tired I didn't even get a chance to go food shopping but then I remembered my Degustabox
gets delivered to work and I was officially saved for the first few days in my new place. So what did I get in my september box! Well let's see.
Jordans Simply Granola
Ok so confessions first (y'all know how much I love confession)! I am not and never have been a fan of granola. Among other reasons my biggest one was the taste of it I don't know why but it never impressed me, that's until Jordan
's Simply Granola. I can not praise this product enough (this is not sponsored in anyway), I just seemed to have found my true favourite thanks to this sub box. I have had other Jordans products and have liked them but I never dared touch the granola. I have been enjoying the Granola so much it's now my essential "food", see what I made below for breakfast yesterday and Recipe
I put together Raisins, Natural Greek yoghurt, banana and topped with Honey.
Burts Lengil Waves, Bahlsen Pick Up & Elizabeth Shaw's Dark chocolate Mints
So obviously after I moved house after work on Monday I needed something to snack on whilst I was planning what I was gonna eat for dinner. These two treats came in very handy and I can not recommend them enough. The Burts Lentil waves came in three flavours which I all enjoyed (not in one day) but sweet chilli was my favourite, they are really nice crunchy chips. Bahlsen's Pick Up are just so yummy, OMG I could not believe it when I eat the milk chocolate ones! I am still searching for them in supermarket stores when them. I got them in two flavours but milk chocolate is my absolute favourite.
People I will not lie the Elizabeth Shaw dark chocolate mints are still in the cupboard and will stay there until someone claims them. I am not and have never been a fan of dark chocolate regardless of whatever flavour it comes with, so I can not say anything but I did love the June chocolates from Elizabeth Shaw chocolates because they were not dark chocolate.
Crabbies & Little Miracles
So I am sure everyone knows or have seen the crabbies TV adverts, I always used to laugh because the woman in the adverts always looked a bit off the screws if you get my drift but it was fun. I had never drunk it before and my honest opinion it's a really really good drink and only has 4% alcohol so I was happy to drink this during the week instead of wait for weekends (oops). Little miracles are a beautiful blend of organic tea and fruit juice, I absolutely loved them. I drunk them mostly before bed and immediately after waking up (if I had left overs I took to wake). They were my secret energy boosting drinks but also found them relaxing somehow.
Carnation & Righteous
When I first opened my degustabox and saw the Carnations I thought thank God I have milk so I can have a cuppa but at close inspection I found its cooking milk (so I was not too far off). I had never used or seen such before so I was very eager to try it out and I did to make my carbonara sauce (recipe was on carton - very handy). The righteous dressings I am yet to use but since I have started cooking again I have plenty of plans for them. I am happy I received three different flavours to try out so can not wait (I will share the dishes I will use them on).
These are the wonderful items I got in my box, I believe this box is only open to UK and a few other European countries (but I heard they are planning on expanding). If you in Europe then I could not recommend this box more it's amazing and very affordable.
