Degusta Box- April

Its Degusta Box time again as some of you may know i get these every month from the lovely people at Degusta Box. So without further or do here is what is in the box...

smarties, milky bar,

pimms, green lady,


parle, rusk

popchips, limited edition

canderel

bebeto, fruit strip,

veetee, rice, wholegrain

The first thing i got in this months box Canderel sugar, personally i think this is amazing sugar without calories and you wouldn't even notice the difference! Although this is £3 so is more expensive than other brands but its worth it.

Next is Pimms with a hint of strawberries and cucumber, i gave this to my mum and dad as i try not to drink alcohol. They thought this would be so lovely in summer as it was very fruity and refreshing. 

Next is the Levi Roots coat 'n' cook sauce, this is one of the only things from the box that i haven't tried yet but i can imagine that this would be gorgeous over ribs.

Popchips!! I love pop chips i always have the barbecue flavour but i hadn't tried these again, these are limited edition sea salt and garlic crisp weren't as flavory as the others i have tried but they were still lovely they always seem like such light snack. These are priced at £1.99.

Rejuvenation water is another item from this month ox, this is priced at £1.99 this is full of amino acids to fuel the immune system so its water thats even better for you than normal water.

Vestee microwavable rice is my favourite rice so i was so happy to see that these were in this months box they literally are the fluffiest rice that you will find. This priced at £1.29.

This is my favourite things from this months box; Smarties sharing block and Milkybar milk & crunchy. I am a big big smarties fan and despite this i had never tried the sharing block, the smarties in the chocolate are like a little hidden surprise. The milky bars are new, again I've always been a milky bar fan but these are nicer than i thought its literally like biscuit and white chocolate mixed. 

Next is Bebeto fruit strings, i was so so intrigued by these as they were a concept id never seen before. There are 7 individual packets of different fruit flavour strings i haven't tried these but they look so interesting and smell amazing and make the perfect snack on the go. 

Next is the Parle biscuits, Parle Rusk is amazing its like french toast and is gorgeous with butter I've nearly ate the whole pack whoops... These are such good value for money too as there under £1!!

Lastly is Green Lady this is a sparkling tea, something i have never ever heard of but this uses all natural ingredients and is a healthy drink. This is something personally i don't think id like as i don't even like normal tea but it is a very interesting concept.

Review: Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector


Clarins, lipperfector, lip balm, Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector, rosewood.

I thought i would review this Clarins instant light lip balm perfector as I have realised I'm always doing hauls but i never review any of the things i actually buy so that is something i wasn't to do more often. Anyway i received this as a gift from my sister from christmas having wanting it for quite some time it is available here for £18.50, mine is in shade Rosewood(eek best name ever, pll fan).

I think these are great for a everyday use as they are very sheen glossy colour rather than a stand out colour matte lip but this makes it really easy to apply and stays on your lips for a long time. The one thing i love about these is how soft and hydrated they leave your lips feeling. Another thing i love about this product is the packaging i just think it looks very sleek and you can tell that this more of luxury product well compared to a normal lip balm i would say its on the luxury side.

Overall i would definitely recommend this product to anyone who wants the "your lips but better" type of look as this is perfect for of a day time.

Degusta Box

Its Degusta Box time again!
This months box was the favourite box I've had in a long time. 






Brioche Pasquier £1.40
These are a new out, they contain creme patisserie, these come individually wrapped making them easy to take out with you for a snack during the day and for £1.40 you get 8 which is good value for 8. 

Weetabix On The Go £1.50
This is a breakfast drink, perfect for on the go. It works by combining all the energy and fibre that weetabix provides in this drink along with 20g extra protein. I received this in both strawberry and blackberry flavour, personally i think the strawberry is nicer but thats just my opinion,. 

Good Hemp Original Milk £1.49
This is a diary free alternative to milk, so is great for anyone who intolerant to diary especially as i always see people struggling to find a alternative that actually tastes like milk and i have to say this does a pretty good job.

Metcalfes Skinny Popcorn £1.50
I received this in flavour Cinema sweet, this is my favourite flavour of popcorn and it literally taste so so similar to cinema popcorn. Its great that it is so tasty because it has 67% less sugar than any other popcorn on the market. If you love sweet popcorn then you have to try this!

Kent's Kitchen Stuffing £1.85
This stuffing is perfect for roast dinners, personally i don't like stuffing so I'm giving this to my nan as she makes Sunday dinner for the whole family every single Sunday. This is also great because its made from all natural ingredients.  

Chewits 35p each
I love Chewits, for some reason they remind me of when i was little, they have been out for 50 years! The blackcurrant ones are my favourite they are so juicy and sweet i love love love them. 

Parle Biscuits 39&59p
This is another brand i hadn't heard of before getting this box and so far i have tried one of these packs of biscuits the hide and seek chocolate chips ones and they are lovely. Im interested to see what else this brand does as so far i like what i tried and i feel its a rea;;y reasonable price. 

Pipers Crisp £2.00
Im surprised i haven't tried these yet, because I'm a huge huge crisp fan i eat them every single day without fail which is bad i know but i love them. These crisp have won so many awards that I'm so excited to try them in the yummy cheddar and onion flavour. 

Lindt white chocolate bunny £2.50
This was my favourite thing in this months box, i love Lindt bunnies there so cute but i didn't even know they did it in white chocolate till i received this box and I'm huge huge white chocolate fan! This is the only chocolate bunny i got this year so ill cherish it haha!

Kallo Cakes £1.00 & £1.89
Kallo was a brand i had never heard of before i received this box, in the box there was multigrain cakes and rice cakes. The multi grain cakes are the perfect snack when your a bit peckish equally the rice cakes are too. The rice cakes have milk chocolate on the back of them making them that little bit sweeter but still are low calorie. 

Karyatis Crackers and dip £1.99
Karyatis is a brand looking to bring a touch of the Mediterranean to you. This product has a red pepper and tangy feta dip with rosemary crackers. This is perfect for a snack or even if you were putting together a Mediterranean inspired tea then this could be a little starter.

Naked Noodles...

This month is national noodle month, I didn't even know this existed till this year and when given the opportunity to work with Naked Noodle for national noodle month i jumped at the chance as i am a huge huge noodle fan! 

nakednoodle, noodle, chow mein,




Naked Noodle challenged me to turn these snack pots into a meal, so i took on the challenge. 

I recieved a package of three snack pots; Chinese Chow Mein, Cantonese Hoisin Duck and Singapore curry there are 5 other flavours available including: Thai Sweet Chilli,, Malaysian Laksa, Thai Tom Yum, Vietnamese Beef Pho and  Japanese Teriyaki. 

For the challenge i used the Hoisin Duck flavour noodles, these were very rich in flavour and the hoisin sauce is very prominent in these noodles as it is very strong. For my challenge i added some actual duck to my noodles and i also added some chills to add a stronger and a bit spicier flavour to them and it did turn what could of been a little snack perfect for on the go and for lunches in to a substantial meal and I would definitely recommend these to anyone
