Product of the month:

Instant Lemon Flavour Tea

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:

Chunky Salted Caramel Fudge

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

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

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

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

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

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! 

Ginger Beer

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.

Fairtrade Everyday Tea

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!

Original Shreddies Breakfast to Go

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

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.
