This month’s Degustabox contained a great variety of products perfect for this time of year and also great for a quick snack or handy if you want to have a quick meal. Also a number of the products have significantly less sugar content than their counterparts which is a bonus.
The real winner for me was the Levi Roots Smokey BBQ Coat and Cook Sauce. I’m normally not a fan of pre made sauces and prefer to make my own but this sauce was amazing! I literally poured it over some chicken and placed in the oven and the result was delicious. The picture and videos speak for themselves. They tasted even better than they looked.

Another great product in the box was the YUSHOI Snap Pea rice sticks, while everyone else in my office was snacking on crisps I had this guilt free snack. They satisfied my snack craving but I felt good eating them because they only have 91 calories and a low sugar content. They are great if you trying to be healthy.
Now on the opposite end of the spectrum is the Hershey’s Cookies n’ Cream KINGSIZE bar. I have always been skeptical of Hershey’s chocolate – my trips to America as a child made me come to the conclusion that Hershey’s chocolate was nowhere near as good as some of the brands we have in the UK. Now to say I was surprised by the taste of this white chocolate bar is an understatement. The white chocolate was not as sweet or sickly as expected and the cookies and cream flavour was delicious. Needless to say I ate the whole king-size bar in one sitting. I didn’t even feel guilty for eating the whole bar either it was worth it!
Another really great treat was the Pitch Choco Barre I found that it was best warmed up in the microwave for about 5 seconds just enough to melt the chocolate in the middle. What you then got was a delicious brioche with warm gooey chocolate. A word of warning though the chocolate is not the best but it works really well with the brioche.
Now a disclaimer before I tell you about the following product the Maggie Fusian noodles. I haven’t actually had pot noodles for a long time. I think the last time was when I was hiking for my Duke of Edinburgh award in secondary school. So my memory of pot noodles is very faint. The preparation was very easy and what I liked was that the flavourings where packaged separately –the dried veggies, spices and infused oil all in three little packets. There is no denying that the Maggie Fusian noodles are an upgrade from the instant noodles I had on my camping trip all those years ago. The flavours are very aromatic and less artificial, however I will not be indulging in these again. I just prefer my noodles with fresh ingredients with none of that instant noodle after taste.
A great box once again from degustabox.
