Degustabox August – Snacks

We have had these crisps before and we love them. They are crunchy, tasty and don’t last very long in our house! The variety pack suits everyone in our house.

Degustabox SeaBrooks crisps

We absolutely loved these snacks. Lets just say they didn’t last very long. We have had the cadbury treat bags before, but not the curly wurly bag and it was lovely. Much easier to eat this size rather than the longer, single variety.

The Bahlsen Pick Up’s were delicious. They were ‘hearty’ biscuits. Non of this break as soon as you try and pick it out of the packet. They were so good we went to the shop the next day and bought the Bahlsen Caramel biscuits.


These healthier snacks are a real surprise. I read chickpea and imaginged chickpea sized bites. But they are actually crisp size and very moorish!


Degustabox August – Drinks

I remember Orangina from back in the day. I had forgotten about them. I tried the Orangina Light and normal and they both tasted the same.

I have to sit on the fence about Twisted Halo. I like Vodka and I like coconut water, but I don’t like ginger. My head can’t get around the ginger. I did like the initial taste but I could get the very slight taste of ginger and then that put me off. If you don’t mind ginger, I could imagine you enjoying this. This would be great to enjoy on a night when you’ve put the kids to bed and you can enjoy it in peace!


Degustabox August – Cooking

When cooking is fun and easy it’s way more enjoyable! These easy to cook noodles are a saviour when time is poor. The taste is great and Maggi always produce good ethnic flavours.

This mild Tabasco jalapeno sauce is a hit with those that want a little hit of Tabasco but can’t take the extra heat of the usual one.
