Degustabox Review and Bengal Curry

degustabox october

It was another great box from Degustabox this month with so many lovely products. Here is what we thought of them.

Special K Cracker Crisps: These are fantastic. When I did the Jenny Craig eating plan, I had this type of crisp as a snack. They are less than 60% fat, but you aren't compromising on the taste.

Blue Dragon Sweet Chili Sauce: We have used this before and it is great for making sweet chilli kebabs or to use as dipping with spring rolls.

Get Buzzing: I am not a fan of raisins so this wasn't for me.

Enhance Drinks: They state that they are small, fabulous and packed with natural flavour, enhance is designed especially for an adult palate. I must admit that I didn't read that before I served it to the boys, however, they enjoyed it. I had a taste myself and can confirm they are really nice. The size makes it great for travelling.

Kent's Kitchen: We had the Bengal meal kit. It was simple, tasted lovely and you can read about it at the end of this post.

Solo Marshmallow Creme: I like marshmallow fluff and we made marshmallow fudge with our pot. You can get the recipe here. It would also be good to use in my whoopie pie recipe.

Dr.Oetker: Premium 90% Extra Dark Chocolate and Fine Dark Chocolate Powder: I haven't yet tried these, but have yet to find a Dr.Oetker product that I don't like. Expect to see a chocolate brownie recipe on the blog soon.

Bear Paws: Little man enjoyed this fruit snack.

Jelly Belly: I don't know why I even doubted whether I would like the sour flavour jelly beans. They were lovely.

Brioche Pasquier:  We received the sliced load and pain au chocolat. Both were nice and the boys enjoyed them at breakfast as an alternative to toast.

Degustabox Fridge was back as well - this time for Benecol Greek Style Youghuts. This time it worked much better as the voucher could be used in a variety of supermarkets. There was also a sample of the Bear Alpha-bites included. We had already tried these in a previous box, but who doesn't like a little extra?
