I’ve been very lucky again this month and had lots of goodies through the post to review. Thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to send me their products.
I generally don’t eat popcorn, it’s not something I would buy but that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. On the odd occasion that I do indulge, I choose the sweet variety but I was pleasantly surprised by these savoury flavours. I really enjoyed the Salt and Vinegar flavour and if I was to buy popcorn, I would probably pick it
again. I wasn’t so keen on the Smoked Paprika flavour but it’s a nice idea.
I was very excited to receive my Nutribox full of exciting looking snacks! Everything in a Nutribox is made from natural ingredients and has some nutritional value. I think it’s a great idea and as there were nine individual products I am going to review this item separately.
I was sent two varieties; Original Tagliatelle and Porcini Mushroom Tagliatelle and we enjoyed both. The quality was far superior than a standard super market quality and although more expensive at £2.10, it is worth the money if you really enjoy pasta and it isn’t just something you use for a quick fix.
I particularly enjoyed the porcini mushroom variety. The flavours were subtle and worked perfectly with a simple sauce.
I’ve never reviewed diet products before and haven’t really ever purchased any so I was interested in trying this package of goodies which included chocolate digestives, Jaffa cake bars, marmalade and part baked bread.
The digestives were nice, there was a generous layer of chocolate so I wouldn’t necessarily have guessed they were lower in calories than your average type apart from the fact that they were a little smaller. The Jaffa cake bar had a nice layer of orange jelly but the cake texture was a bit soft and flavourless.
All in all, if you’re on a diet the products were good but I prefer to follow the rule of eating healthy with the odd treat. I’d rather have what I enjoy as occasionally combined with healthy eating than substitute them for options that compromise on flavour.
