Hi!! I recieved another Degusta box and I think that this one may be my favourite yet! 

As you may know by now I am completely mad on packaging and I love the cute box this comes in. 

The produce is tissue wrapped and had a green sticker keeping it in place saying 'open me, eat me...try me'. I love little touches like this. 

Look at all these yummy goodies inside. I have a massive sweet tooth so just one quick glance I was already drooling!

Look at my delicious loot! I can't quite to delve into this. 

First things I picked out were these two alcoholic ciders. They are 4.5% alcohol volume. One of them is an apple cider an the other is pear which tends to be a bit sweeter. I can't wait to try. 

I got two packets of 3 Reese's peanut butter cups which are my FAVOURITE things ever! Such a guilty pleasure. If you've never tried (you don't know what you're missing) but think, a creamy peanut butter consistency in the middle encased in milk chocolate. So indulgent. I think I may use these to make some cupcakes or something similar. 

From a brand which I haven't before heard of Kents Kitchen I recieved a pot of Posh Noodles in spicy Szechuan. It's only 242 calories and perfect for a work lunch. All you need to do is pour in some boiling water, leave it for about two minutes, give it a stir and you're reading to gobble it up! 

This was from a company called Mallow and Marsh and I got a mini box of three raspberry marshmallows. I must admit these were actually eaten on the same night I opened this, they were that good. Less like a conventional marshmallow this was like a hybrid with nougat. It was airy, yet had a chewy element to it. The raspberry flavour was really nice too, it wasn't too strong which I liked but you could definitely taste it too. 

Wine gums remind me of either a) being a child and munching through a pack hoping for a black or red one. Or b) that old charlieissocoollike video on YouTube where he eats his way through about ten packets of wine gums. I was very happy to see this bag are all black and red ones aka everyone's favourites! I think I may keep this stash in my car. 

Jelly Babies are a firm favourite in my household so I'm sure these will go down a treat. Similar to the wine gums the black and red jelly babies also happen to be my favourites too. 

I got these Compete energy bites in mocha flavour. I've been thinking of getting back into running and my fitness again so this would be a perfect quick energy boost. 

Inside, they look like this. You can snap off a square so you can throw it in your handbag or gym bag. Each square contains 135mg of caffeine. 

I got this bottle of Sweet Sally of spiced tea. This sounds so interesting, I've never tried anything like this. I'm not entirely sure whether you can drink it just how it is or whether you can warm it up. It contains a mix of different flavours and spices so I think it would be quite warming in the winter. 

I got these two cartons of Up and Go breakfast drinks in vanilla or chocolate flavour. They are high fibre and high protein plus, like the name says, it's great for when you're up and on the go. Just shake it up and drink. 

I also got this The Olive Shop extra virgin olive oil. It came in such a nice bottle. It feels like very thick glass, which naturally I felt looked more high price (It does retail at £5) and the olive oil is sourced from Italy. 

I can't wait to try out the rest of these fab products! Hopefully I'll be able to update you with recipe posts that I've used these in. 

All my love, a. x
