Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

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

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

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 

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.

Dr. Karg’s Organic Wholegrain Snack Tomato & Mozzarella

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

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

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 

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 

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.
