On to the Products

 

octobers-2016-degustabox-pitch-and-yushoi

 

Broiche Pasquier Pitch

I love this brand and there is nothing that I have had from them which I didn’t like. These area bun with a chocolate finger in the middle. These taste really nice slightly melted. There is only 4 in a pack which I wish there was a few more in. My favourite item from them so far are the Pains au Chocolat which I received in March’s Degusatabox. These are priced at £1.40

My overall rating 

 

Yushio Snapea Rice Snacks

These where really nice, nicer than I expected them to be. So nice in fact that I ate the entire pack in one go! They are made from green peas and rice. These are priced at £1.99 for a 105g bag, but pricey, but would buy these again if I saw them on offer

octobers-2016-degustabox-heinz-pasta

 

Heinz Kid’s Pasta Shapes & Sauce

My kids couldn’t wait to try these especially because the pasta was shaped like little Minions. I normally buy cheap pasta for 30p a 500g bag and the shops home brand which is priced between 70p-£1.30 depend on which shop and which size jar. So these where quite expensive at £1.19 for the pasta which is 360g and £1.55 for the sauce. But to my surprise the kids didn’t like it. All 3 off them only ate a bit and left the rest. They said the pasta was chewy and tasted horrible and the sauce wasn’t thick enough and didn’t coat the pasta very well. Think I will be sticking to my cheap plain pasta.

octobers-2016-degustabox-jim-jams-and-hersheys

 

Jim Jams Milk Chocolate Spread

This chocolate spread from Jim Jams is 83% less sugar than other chcolate spreads and is gluten free and diabetic friendly. This was really nice and the kids loved it. It’s priced at £2.59 and is a great chocolate spread to have instead of the ones full of sugar

My overall rating 

 

Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme

This was gorgoeus! I love any kind of chocolate, and eat way too much of it. This one was cookies and creme flavour and tasted really nice. I actually ate the whole bar as soon as I finished taking the photos for this post. This is priced at £1.00

My overall rating 

 

octobers-2016-degustabox-maggi-and-souper

 

Maggi Fusian Noodles

I received two flavours, Aromatic Spiced Curry and Fiery Sweet Chilli. Both off these were really nice. Each pack contains the noddles then 3 sachets, the veg, the curry powder and some oil. These take just 4 minutes to make and are really full of flavour. You would never guess these come from a packet. These are priced at £1.39 each. bit pricey for me, but I would buy these as an occasional treat.

My overall rating 

Souper

I received two of these soups in flavours Pulled Pork & Jalapenos and Supergreens. Obviously, I haven’t had the pulled pork one has I am a vegetarian, so this one my husband can try out, which he has done yet. So I tried the Supergreens, which I thought was going to be horrible and full of kale, which I don’t like. But this contains, peas, spinach, leeks, asparagus and is really moreish. I really enjoyed it. All of the soups are high in protein and help you to stay fuller for longer. These are priced at£1.49 each, again a bit pricey for me, but if I saw it on offer I would buy a few.

My overall rating 

 

octobers-2016-degustabox-beloved-dates

 

Beloved Fruit Heart Dates

i got all 4 flavours of these, Zesty Orange, Cocoa & Berry, Simply Divine and Rich Cocoa. These are gluten free and suitable for vegans and also one of your 5 a day. This is the first time I have tried dates. I liked the orange ones the most, but these are not something I would buy very often as not too over keen. They are priced at 75p each

My overall rating 

 

octobers-2016-degustabox-levi-roots-and-robinsons

 

Levi Roots Smokey BBQ Coat ‘n’ Cook

Another item for my husband. He hasn’t tried this yet, but I know he will really like it. It’s priced at £1.00

My overall rating 

 

Robinsons Squash’d Orange

We go through a lot of squash in our house. So I normmaly buy the shop’s own brand as other wise I would be spending a fortune a week. But we do like Robinson and do have it now and again. I really like the size of these as it doesn’t take much room up at all. You could also pop it in your bag and just add to a bottle of water. It had a really lovely orange taste too. This is priced at £2.49.

My overall rating 

 

octobers-2016-degustabox-flat-lay
