Degustabox July Review and Lemon and Chocolate Drizzle Shortbread

Our Degustabox for June arrived and I was happy as it contained chocolate, popcorn and cake decorations. Here is what I thought of the items in this month's box:

ZEO: These soft drinks were nice and refreshing as they weren't overly sweet. Something to look out for in a cafe.

Frank: This Blueberry and chocolate snack bar wasn't my cup of tea, but I don't like dried fruit. The boys happily ate it.

Portlebay Popcorn: Bacon and Maple Syrup Popcorn. Sounds so wrong but tastes so good! Chilli and lime wasn't my favourite but overall I was impressed with these bags of popcorn.

Maggi: I haven't tried all of these yet, but I do find that they make mealtimes simple. I am really looking forward to trying the beef and ale casserole.

Dr. Oetker: Two new edible decorations. My favourite were the eton mess decorations and there was a cupcake recipe included too. 

Hornsby's:  Blueberry Cider tastes a bit like cider and black to me.

The Berry Company: This was the suprise of the box. I wasn't expecting to like this but it was a lovely and refreshing drink.

Green and Black's: I LOVE Green and Black's chocolate. This was no exception. Dark Chocolate with a hit of lemon - fantastic!

Then melt half a bar of Green and Black's Lemon bar and drizzle over the biscuits.

Enjoy with a cup of tea or a strong coffee.
