Solo Marshmallow Creme

DSC_0737This has to be one of the most exciting things I’ve ever gotten in a Degustuabox. Apart from alcohol. Alcohol is always exciting.

This is a spreadable marshmallow treat that you can use for baking, or eat straight out of tub.

It reminds me of the type of thing you’d spoon into your mouth straight from the tub when your boyfriend has broken up with you and you don’t feel like getting an ice-cream headache. Yes please!

You can get them from American Soda, as well as a bunch of other wonderful American food and drink.

£1.99

Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce

I don’t really know if this needs much introduction. I’ve bought this myself many times.  I love smoothing salmon with it before oven baking and it’s great for wraps.

Special K Cracker Crisp

Help. Last time I bought a packet of these, I sat and at the whole pack in one go. Then I probably moaned how fat I am while wondering why I can’t lose weight. Lightbulb moment..

These have 60% less fat than normal crisps and come in a variety of flavours:

  • BBQ
  • sea salt and balsamic vinegar
  • sour cream and onion
  • sweet chilli

You can find them in most supermarkets and I often see them on a promotion for £1 or 2 for £2.

I love these – highly concentrated flavour for water. It’s a tiny bottle of fruity flavour to add to your water.
