Degustabox Review and Pomegranate and Goats Cheese Salad

September's Degustabox was another good one. I think the best thing about these boxes is that you try new things. Some you like, some not so much, but I can guarentee that I would never have thought of purchasing some of the products before having tasted them in my Degustabox. Here is this month's list of products and my thoughts.

Burts Lentil Waves: These were fantastic. Really tasty and I would certainly buy them again. The only problem being is that they are sold in Waitrose and I shop online at Tesco. I enjoyed all the flavours and love that they are less than 100 calories a bag.

Jordans Simply Granola: We are already fans of Jordans Granola, and I will be using some to make this lovely plum crumble.

Pick Up!: These are really nice biscuits. The boys loved them too. I preferred the milk chocolate ones.

Crabbies Zesty Lemon: Not something I would necessarily buy, but a nice tasting lemon alcopop in my opinion

Little Miracles: These were a suprise. Really nice and I would buy these again. I liked that they weren't overly sweet.

Carnation Cook with it!: Great to have in the cupboard to make a quick sauce. My boys love pasta so it was nice to make a quick and easy carbonara using this.

Elizabeth Shaw: Dark Chocolate Mint Thins - difficult to go wrong with these.

Righteous: These dressings were lovely and really made a salad taste good. I really liked these, especially the raspberry and sweet basil.

I was given a degustabox for the purpose of this review but the opinions here are my own.

    At first I thought it was an odd concept, but I look forward to trying new products x

    I love pomegranates - couldn't believe I couldn't buy an actual fruit though - just the seeds

  5. Oh wow, made a similar salad with pomegranete and blue cheese, this looks stunning! Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x
