Degustabox November Box Review

Hello folks, 

I've got a quick little review for you today...

If you're considering a subscription gift for a foodie this Christmas, a Degustabox food box subscription is a brilliant idea. Keep reading to the bottom of this post for a discount code too! 

Degustabox - what is it?

So, here's what we thought about the contents of our Festive themed November Degustabox...

Degustabox November 2018 box

Product of the Month

Amy’s Kitchen
Organic Chunky Tomato & Organic Lentil Vegetable Soup
£1.80

Amy’s Organic Soups start as vegetables, not as broth. We create our soup base by slowly sautéing tender organics vegetables with herbs. This modern method of making soup allows for the unique flavour of each soup to come forward. Here you’ll try two of our favourites!

These soups are delicious!! They are really amazing quality and packed full of flavour. Tinned soup can so often be a bit of a let down for me, and I usually buy fresh soups, but I will definitely be looking out for these in the supermarket.  A great speedy lunch or light dinner option. 

Emily Veg Crisps
Sweet Potato Sticks
£1.00

Get your crunch on with new Emily Veg Crisps Sweet Potato Sticks. Try classic Sea Salt with a sprinkling of salt over traditional yellow and bold purple sweet potato, or zesty Chilli and Lime with a beautiful mix of spice with sharp, tangy lime.

I'm obsessed with these sweet potato sticks, Ive tried the other flavours before, and their fruit ranges, and I think they're so tasty. I love the super crunchy texture, and how they aren't oily, as normal 'crisp' style snacks usually are. 

Jules Destrooper
Almond Thins & Belgium Chocolate
£2.19
The classic Jules Destrooper crisp & nutty Almond Thins biscuit with a thin coating of just enough Belgian Milk chocolate. The perfect indulgent combination.

What a treat! Anything from Jules Destrooper is always a luxury, and these thin little nutty biscuits were divine with a cup of coffee - they're really crunchy and chocolatey enough to feel indulgent in a delicate and refined way. 

Degustabox November 2018 box

Weetabix
On The Go Kids
£2.99

Make mornings smooth with Weetabix on the go for kids. With four single serve pouches in a multi pack, you can be prepared for those busy on the go mornings. In three delicious flavours, a source of Vitamin D, calcium, fibre and protein. No artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours.

We gave these drinks to Connie (Bert doesn't like sweet drinks, always opting for water or milk), and she adored them, most often drinking them in the buggy on the way to take Bert to school, wearing her pink fur coat and sunglasses, that's how she rolls at the moment, haha, she's SO AbFab! The drinks are great to give kids out and about ('on the go', as the name suggests!) and it's great as a parent to know the kids feel like they're having a treat, but actually you know they are a source of goodness. 

Tabasco
Original Red Pepper Sauce
£2.00

Tabasco original Red Pepper Sauce celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. Tabasco Red Pepper Sauce is made with just three ingredients: red peppers, vinegar and salt. Tabasco is 0 calories and is vegan. Great added to eggs, stirred into Christmas Bloody Mary’s or mixed with mayo for a prawn cocktail.

If you like spicy food, you'll already be au fait with Tabasco sauce - an absolute classic, and for me, a store cupboard staple. I add it often to soups, stews, curries and sauces, it is the perfect condiment for those who like their food fiery! 

Nick’s
Coconut Bar
£1.45

N!CK’s Coconut is a rich and delicious naturally sweetened coconut bar coated with milk chocolate, with no added sugar. The perfect choice for a delicious guilt-free indulgence. We never add sugar in our products, not now and never!

I think this was my favourite item in this months box - it is basically a posher, better quality and healthier version of a Bounty bar! Yasssss! I will definitely be buying more of these to enjoy as a treat - especially lovely as an afternoon snack/pick me up with a cup of tea. 

Reese’s
Peanut Butter Snowman 141g
£3.00

A great seasonal treat – a Peanut Butter filled Snowman with a chocolate coating. The perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

What a cute Christmassy treat! We've actually saved this to give to a family member who loves Reese's, we thought it would make a perfect little treat for her at Christmas time. 

Jack Daniel’s & Cola and Jack Daniel’s & Light Cola
£2.00

A perfect mix of Jack Daniel’s old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey & Cola and Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey & Light Cola. Two convenient, perfectly mixed drinks whether you’re on the go or staying in with friends – best served chilled.

These are similar products to the lemonade one's we tried in a previous box - the light cola one is delicious, and not too heavy on the calorie front, so this would definitely be my choice of the two. If you're a JD fan, these are super convenient and ideal for taking to parties over the festive period. 

Kallo
Organic Vegetable Stock Pots
£1.80

TAKE STOCK OF ALL YOUR INGRDIENTS THIS WINTER AND GO ORGANIC WITH Kallo. Kallo organic vegetable stock pots are the perfect partner to enhance all your family favourite, home cooked delicious dishes. Natural, organic and no added MSG or artificial ingredients, they simply add delicious flavour and nothing else.

I LOVE the Kallo stock products, and buy them frequently already - they really are one of the best quality stock pots available, and I'm pleased to have added the vegetable ones to my pantry!

The Bees Knees
Non Alcoholic Sparkling Wine (20cl)
£1.89

The ‘Bees’ is a sophisticated, vegan friendly alternative to sparkling wine. Made from grapes and infused with green tea, it offers floral aromas with refreshing acidity. It looks and tastes like a sparkling wine, but without alcohol, lower sugar, gluten-free and around half the calories of the average fizz. 

This is another thing I've squirrelled away, to give a pregnant friend when she visits over the festive period, it's ideal for those who don't/can't drink or are driving and will hopefully help them to feel less left out. What a great idea!

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big - review

This weekend Bert and I took my best friend and her daughter to Nottingham Motorpoint Arena to see Disney on Ice presents Dream Big

Back in April this year, Bert and I reviewed the Disney on Ice Worlds of Enchantment tour (read our full review here) and we were SO excited to be asked back to review their latest show. 

Bert and his bestie waiting for the train
Excited besties all ready for a Disney On Ice adventure! 
We jumped on the train from Bedford > Nottingham, which takes just over an hour: the kids love a good train journey, and of course, us mums had packed loads to keep them entertained, fed and watered for the journey. 

busy kids on the train
Train activities! 
On arrival in Nottingham we took the short walk into town, and made at pit stop at the Golden Arches (about 10 min walk from the train station) to refuel before the 2.30pm showing. It takes about 15 mins to walk to the Motorpoint Arena from the town centre, and the doors open an hour before the show starts to allow plenty of time to get through bag checks, pick up some refreshments and merchandise, and get comfortable in your seats. 

Having been to a Disney on Ice show before, Bert and I knew what to expect, and naturally our expectations were high after loving the show in April so much. Our friends had never been before, so it was super exciting to see their reaction for the first time, and actually both us mums found it really emotional, watching the kids enjoy and share the experience together. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham
The icy stage! 
Our seats were amazingly close, and gave us an absolutely brilliant view of the ice. The twenty minutes or so we spent in our seats before the show started were excruciatingly exciting for the kids, who asked every 2 minutes how long until the show started. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big, is a celebration of 90 years of Walt Disney's 'true original' Mickey Mouse, and follows the key Disney princesses on their individual quests to follow their dreams. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Mickey and Minnie Mouse
The show is opened by Mickey and Minnie Mouse in their true original forms, and they act as compares throughout the show, linking and introducing each scene to the stage. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Princess Jasmine and Aladdin
Aladdin and Princess Jasmine
The main show starts with scenes from Aladdin - we're treated to versions of 'One Jump' in the Agrabah marketplace where we meet Aladdin and his pet monkey, Abu, shortly followed by meeting the famous Genie for a rendition of 'Never Had a Friend Like Me', the Aladdin portion of the show closes with a beautiful version of 'A Whole New World' where we watch Aladdin and Princess Jasmine fall in love, swoon.

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Aladdin and the Genie
The Genie granting Aladdin his first wish! 
Next up, was my all time favourite 'Beauty and the Beast' where we meet Belle, Lumiére and the dinnerware who present the epic 'Be Our Guest' - this was a real showstopper! 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Be Our Guest
Belle, Lumiére and the dinnerware!
Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Be Our Guest
Be Our Guest
Then we join the fearless Moana and the greatest demigod that ever lived, Maui, on an action-packed voyage to restore the stolen heart of Te Fiti. Moana is a favourite with our kids, so they were so thrilled to see them so close up and re-experience their favourite songs from the show. It goes without saying that the ice dancers are so unbelievably talented, the grown ups watched on in total awe!

Maui and Moana
Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Moana
Beautiful Moana: we had such a great view of a corner platform where so many of the cast would stand and wave to us during the show! 
Following on from the Moana showcase you get tangled up in Rapunzel’s hair-raising quest to see the floating lights, the scene includes the beautiful duet between Rapunzel and Flynn Rider called 'I See the Light' from the film 'Tangled'. Truly awe-inspiring and hair raising/tingle inducing stuff. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Tangled
Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled
The first half of the show closes with an excellent segment featuring the characters from 'The Little Mermaid' including Ariel, Flounder, Sebastian, Ursula, Prince Eric and more. This is a real showcase of the film with lots of the main 'numbers' included, as well as beautiful array of colourful and bright costumes which fill the ice: the stage is so full and exciting that you genuinely don't know where to look!

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - The Little Mermaid
Ariel and Prince Eric
There's a short interval to refuel, nip the loo etc before we are transported back to magical Disney lands.

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - the merchandise
Checking out the merch! 
We set the kids limit of one piece of merchandise each as a memento of their day, and they both chose large Disney Princess figures, priced at £12 each. Bert chose Rapunzel and his friend chose Ariel. They clutched them throughout the show, and it was really lovely to watch them reenact the show on the train home with their new toys. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review
Will you just look at their excitement?
The second half of the show sees us travel to mountainous Arendelle with Anna, Elsa and Olaf in a dramatic retelling of the sisterly love that saved a kingdom. This section is a really special part of the show - the light work, set, and special effects including fire, pyrotechnics, bubbles and snow are really breathtaking and only make the experience even more magical for the audience! 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Frozen
Elsa (Frozen)
Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Frozen
Anna, Christoff and Olaf!
The close of the show uncovers the strength, bravery and kindness that inspired generation after generation with a celebration of Jasmine, Ariel, Aurora, Belle and Cinderella. What a line up!!

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Dragon
The Dragon, Prince Philip and the fire!!
Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - Cinderella's coach
Cinderella in her coach
What always strikes me most at Disney on Ice shows (aside from the incredible talent of the ice dancers) is the detail of the costumes and set pieces. All of the characters are instantly recognisable, and the costumes are all absolutely exquisite, but still suitable for ice dancing - which is no mean feat. In this show they seemed to have gone all out with set including Cinderella's amazing coach and an actual fire breathing dragon from Sleeping Beauty! Seeing the kids' faces when these appeared on stage was truly priceless. 

Disney on Ice presents Dream Big review - finale
The Finale!
We had the best time, and my friend and I felt quite emotional about the whole thing, vowing we should make time more often to fit in these lovely treat days with just our elder two children (who also happen to be best friends and in the same class at school, handy that!). We were not disappointed by the show at all, and we sang and danced our way back to Nottingham train station on a real high. 

The Disney on Ice shows are truly a wonder to behold - they appeal to such a vast age range (there were newborns and young toddlers, as well as school aged children in the audience) and honestly, all of the adults were having an amazing time too - it really is a treat for the whole family!

What was in our October 2018 Degustabox + discount code!

WINTER WARMER DEGUSTABOX...

Degustabox UK

Degustabox contents October 2018

Product of the month:

Lift
Instant Lemon Flavour Tea
£1.49

Our Classic Lemon flavour tea is a favourite for many. Enjoyed hot or cold, this refreshing beverage excites the taste buds with a combination of sweet and citrus flavours.

OMG! I am officially OBSESSED with this stuff - it's so warming and delicious, perfect for autumn winter & only 22 calories per mug. WIN! I will be buying this as a staple part of my weekly shop from now on. 

Rest of the box:

KITKAT
Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge
£0.65

Introducing KITKAT Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge, an exciting, indulgent, salty sweet taste sensation! Unwrap, snap off a chunk and enjoy the delicious smooth milk chocolate and crispy wafer with a caramel fudge flavoured topping of KITKAT Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge.

Hubby devoured it and said it is the best flavour yet - and that's high praise! The peanut butter one is now a close second. 

Heinz Creationz
Mexican Beanz
£1.75

The Heinz Creationz range comes in four delicious world flavours, Spanish, Italian and Mexican Beanz as well as Lentil Curry. Perfect for talking to work for a quick lunch, or as a tasty and speedy addition to your dinner.

I love these quick pouches - and have actually already tried quite a few of the Heinz Creationz - they are a really good quick dinner (on toast, jacket potato etc) or a side dish, lunch option or even breakfast addition. Quick, easy, no mess, no washing up, and super flavour and quality, which I've definitely come to expect from Heinz. 

Jack Daniel’s
Tennessee Honey & Lemonade
£2

Jack Daniels’s Tennessee Honey & Lemonade is a refreshing mix of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey and zesty lemonade. A convenient, perfectly mixed drink for whether you’re on the go or staying in with friends. The ultimate summer cooler, enjoyed all year round.

My brother and I both love a JD, so I'm saving these cans for when he next comes to visit - they're so handy to keep chilled for when guests come over, or to keep on hand for an evening treat. I like that it's a perfect serving, all measured etc. 

Upbeat Drinks
Spring Water Enriched with Protein & Vitamins
£1.59

Enriched hydration for strength, energy and mental performance. Zero sugar, low calorie and real fruit flavour.

Hubby and I both weren't keen on these before - you'll know what I mean when I say they had a really strong vitamin taste, and were super sweet for my taste buds. That being said I am a soft drink purist, preferring plain water most of the time - I don't even like squash! 

Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen
Mexican Spiced Tomato Sauce
£1.89

Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen cooking sauces, for a delicious meal, ready in 15 minutes! Pour the sauce over your cooked meat, fish or vegetables for fantastic Latin American flavour. Santa Maria cooking sauces are Vegan friendly and Gluten free.

We are using this sauce on Sunday night for dinner & I'm looking forward to trying it - Mexican cuisine is one of our favourites here at Chez Bishop - and we are big fans of the Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen brand - in fact, I actually look for this brand above all others when it comes to these types of cooking sauces now. 

Get Fruity Bar
Moist Mixed Berry
£0.70

Award winning Moist Mixed Berry Bar. Made of real fruit and gluten free wholegrain oats, baked to perfection with absolutely no artificial ingredients. No added cane sugar, vegan, gluten free and a great source of Fibre.

Bert enjoyed this fruity bar, he said it tasted like a super fruity flapjack - I liked that he felt it was a treat snack, but I actually knew it was a healthy source of fibre and wholegrain, with no added sugar! Mum win! 

Supermalt
Ginger Beer
£1.19

Ginger Beer by Supermalt is made using real ginger extract, and a delicate hint of lemongrass to give it a truly refreshing drink with an energising fiery kick. Best served ice cold. Enjoy as a full flavour soft drink or as a mixer for your favourite cocktails.

I love ginger beer; my mum likes to tell me it must be because she had a craving for it throughout her twin pregnancy with me and my sister (!) This Supermalt branded ginger beer was lovely - very fiery and great served with my marmalade gin! I also adored the packaging/branding, it looked so cool. 

Supermalt Ginger Beer

Clipper
Fairtrade Everyday Tea
£2.89

Our delicious Fairtrade Tea is big, bright and bold, delivering a quality cup of tea you’ll want to come back to again and again. All Clipper products are made with pure, natural ingredients and a clear conscience. You also have a lovely Clipper Fairtrade tea towel included in your pack!

Ahhh tea - I fell out of love with it when I was pregnant with Connie, but prior to that I was a massive tea drinker (5+ cups per day). In the last few months I've really started to get into it again, so I was chuffed to get a lovely box of 'posh tea' in this months box. I was thrilled with the added bonus of a lovely new Fair-trade tea towel too! Thanks Clipper! 

PS. Clipper makes FAB-U-LOUS tea! 

Super cute Clipper tea towel!
Super cute Clipper tea towel! 

Shreddies
Original Shreddies Breakfast to Go
£1.99

A new, all-in-one Nestle on the go solution coming with a portion of Shreddies cereals and a carton of milk. Packed in a recyclable cup with a spoon, simply pour the milk on the cereals and you’re ready to eat in seconds.

The excitement when Bert clapped eyes on this - why do kids love a gimmick so much? Essentially it's a mini pot of Shreddies with a carton of long life milk and a spoon, so you can have cereal on the go. Of course, Bert ate it on the living room floor, but he's never really in need of breakfast on the go, let's be honest. I can see that it could be useful for commuters/office workers I guess...but a bit gimmicky for me! 


SPOON Granola
Cherry Bomb
£3.89

Toasted oats with ground almonds, pumpkin seeds, freeze dried cherries, honey, maple syrup and a dusting of ground cinnamon and nutmeg. No refined sugar. High in fibre. Wholegrains. Making breakfast better. No small talk before breakfast. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Suitable for veggies.Wholegrain oat granola with pumpkin seeds and a natural cherry hit, lightly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Basically, berry granola but better. What Our granolas contain a short list of high-quality ingredients, like pure Canadian maple syrup, which tastes awesome and is packed with more antioxidants and nutrients than refined sugars. Not rocket science. But tastes out of this world.
If you've ever read a Degustabox post from me before you'll know that A) Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and B) I am OBSESSED with granola. I eat it almost every day, with full fat coconut flavour yoghurt from Aldi, and fresh fruit, with a tiny squeeze of honey, and I look forward to it every morning! So I'm always THRILLED to find a new granola to try. I've never eaten a SPOON granola before, but this one was truly delicious. I'm still finishing off the box, but I've had it daily since it arrived two weeks ago. It has a subtle cherry flavour  with a big hit of warming almost Christmassy spices, and a nice fine consistency (not clusters). I would happily buy this again and again, especially in autumn/winter.

Have you tried Degustabox?

It's time to share with you the contents of our September Degustabox food box delivery, and what we thought of each item... 

september 2018 Degustabox contents

september 2018 Degustabox contents

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
£0.89 

Satisfy your peanut butter passion with three incredibly delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups! Rich, delectable Peanut Butter Cups drenched in smooth chocolate! The perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. 

I love these - so I'm afraid I was only just about willing to let Liam have one of the three in the packet - a very naughty treat but totally delicious for any PB fans out there! 

Cadbury Oreo Instant Hot Chocolate
£2.99

Cadbury Oreo Hot Chocolate is the newest addition to our hot chocolate range, bringing the Oreo biscuit taste to life in a delicious way! Simply put 4 heaped teaspoons (28g) of Cadbury Oreo Hot Chocolate into a mug, pour on hot water and stir for a delicious moment. 

The kids loved trying this hot chocolate - they're big Oreo fans, so it was right up their street. It's perfect to have in the cupboard for the colder months as they approach and I love how easy this is to prepare. 

Juicy Fuel Cola - Original
£1.50

Juicy Fuel Craft Cola is the brand-new craft Cola from The Juice Shed company. A fruit cola made from 100% natural ingredients. No added sugar, no added chemicals, nasty e-numbers or anything that doesn’t need to be there. 

These fizzy drinks aren't really my bag, so I always save them in the fridge until we have guests over who like carbonated drinks. That being said, I did love the packaging, and it appeals to me that it doesn't have any artificial nasties! 

YES! Fruit and Nut Bars 
£1.20 x3

YES! Snack Bars are delicious, wholesome, and perfect for snacking on the go. Our fruit bars contain no added sugar (besides naturally occurring sugars), and contain 1 of your 5 a day! Our nut bars contain 5g of sugar and are a source of protein. 

These were delicious. I'm a big eater of these types of bar, I find them very useful for eating on the go, a good healthy snack that you can pop in your handbag is a must for a busy parent, so I would heartily recommend these bars - worth a try if you see them in the shops!

CHOCK CHICK - Cacao Nibbles 
£1.85

New CHOCK CHICK Cacao Nibbles - the most delicious way to enjoy the goodness of the whole cocoa bean with a touch of Yacon. This super food combination is CHOC full of anti-oxidants, magnesium and iron and is a powerful prebiotic. A perfect desk snack or for adding to desserts, cereals or yoghurt.

I LOVED these! I'd never tried anything like this before, but I found they really satisfied my sugar cravings and it was reassuring to know they are GOOD for you, and not full of processed sugar. I ate the bag as a snack, but they would be equally as delicious over cereal/porridge or a dessert of some kind. I would definitely buy these again! 

Indie Bay Snacks - Pretzel Bites 
£0.99 each x2

Indie Bay Snacks are reinventing the classics, starting with pretzels. These delicious bites are made using alternative flours like spelt and quinoa. That means they’re a convenient source of fibre and protein. Their two new flavours - Smokin’ BBQ & Easy Cheesy, are vegan as well. These are pretzels with benefits. 

We've eaten Indie Bay's Pretzel Bites before, and always enjoyed them. The Bishop's are big traditional pretzel lovers, so these little balls of pretzel-ness really hit the spot. I enjoyed the Smokin' BBQ flavour very much. 

september 2018 Degustabox contents

Dr. Karg’s Organic Wholegrain Snack Tomato & Mozzarella
£1.60

Our organic Tomato & Mozzarella crunchy snack packs are the perfect fibre-rich and natural in-between snack - in the office, at home, or on the go. Baked and not fried, made of crunchy grains and seeds, as well as other wholesome ingredients. Sun ripened, moreish and gone in one bite! 

These were YUMMMMMMMMY! They taste just like a margarita pizza! Perfect for a snack, or for a lunch time light bite - they are super crunchy so go really well in soups, salads or for dipping in hummus, salsa or guacamole! 

Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps
£1.80

Summer butter, sugar, eggs and flour - together, they combine to create a crunchy biscuit that wins everyone over because of the rich taste of butter, caramelised sugar and a hint of spice. A Belgian classic! 

I won't lie - the whole box of these biscuits was empty within 2 days of our box arriving - if that isn't testament to how great they are, I don't know what is? They're super crisp, almost brandy snap like, but crumbly and buttery at the same time. They are UBER rich and decadent - the sort of biscuit you can FEEL expanding your waistline as you eat it (the best kind!). A gorgeous treat that we would happily enjoy again. 

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Cider
£2.29

Jack Daniel’s is proud to bring you Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Cider. By combining crisp apple cider with smooth Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, we’ve expertly blended something that’s not only distinctly refreshing, but also unmistakably Jack to the core!

I haven't drunk Jack Daniel's in years, but I do love a whiskey based drink, and I really enjoyed this deep and smooth cider. It basically has all the crisp freshness of a typical apple cider, with a deliciously warming spirit aftertaste! Yum! 

Good Hemp - Hemp Seed Hearts 
£3.99

Our Hemp Seed Hearts are natural hemp seed kernels which have a delicious, light and nutty flavour. High in protein and omegas 3 & 6, they are the perfect healthy and filling snack. Alternatively, sprinkle on cereal, porridge, yoghurt, soup and salads, or use in baking. Enjoy! 

We've had these Good Hemp seed hearts from a previous Degustabox, I do find repeats frustrating with the box, as although it was a while ago we had them, it is exactly the same product and not one I'd be likely to repeat purchase. I'm not keen on the texture of these, and don't feel like they add much in terms of flavour to a meal. 

a2 Milk - Long Life Whole Cows’ Milk 
£1.50


a2 Milk is natural cows’ milk with a difference. It’s naturally free from the A1 protein found in regular cows’ milk so it’s gentle on sensitive tummies, easy to digest and less likely to trigger symptoms associated with milk intolerance. 

Another repeat product, which is disappointing. However, a2 milk is something handy to have in the cupboard, as it's a long life product its a good milk back up for if you ever run out. 

Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to know your thoughts.
