Last week I received the Shaping Up For Summer Black Box. Since then I’ve had a chance to try everything in the box and now I’m ready to share with you all my thoughts about the products I received inside!
Tasti Super Grains Muesli Bars
We received the cocoa, toasted coconut & quinoa flavour. I’ve had these bars before. They are quite popular with my family, particularly my son. They are something I buy regularly and they empty out of our cupboard fast.
Burgen Soy & Linseed Toast
OMG this was so delicious! So much so that it was pretty much finished within hours of opening the packet. This is definitely something that I would buy again provided the price was right.
Y.E.L.O Yellow Tomatoes
Sweet and yummy. These tomatoes made a delicious additions to our salads at dinner.
Healtheries Iced Tea
We received the blackcurrant and boysenberry flavour. I’m not completely sold on this one. I can definitely say that the longer you leave the bag to brew the better the flavour though. My children seem to enjoy the taste of it though.
So Good Soy Milk
I’m definitely more of a cow milk person. It took me a while to get used to the taste of soy milk in my coffee.
V8 Tropical Fusion Juice
Wow! Is the word that comes to mind with this product. I drank this in place of my usual breakfast smoothie and I can honestly say that it gave me an energy boost like no other! I felt so good after drinking this, which is interesting considering the night before I’d had a few alcoholic drinks plus a bad night with my 1 year old, both of which would normally guarantee a sluggish day to follow. Instead my day started with an energetic bang that continued well into the afternoon.
Pure Blonde Ultra Low Carb Lager
I did have a taste of this but ultimately it was my Husband who drank this one. I couldn’t really taste much difference between this beer and any others although my Husband did say it wasn’t bad.
Colgate Total Proof Toothpaste
This is an interesting toothpaste. It claims to turn blue as you clean your teeth and it does but it’s a very pale blue colour. It does taste nice though. Not the strong, sharp minty flavour that toothpaste usually have.
LA VIE Spritzer
I received the Strawberry & Lime flavour. It was quite a sweet wine spritzer. I kind of expected a little more tartness from the lime but it wasn’t. I could probably happily drink this again if given it although I don’t know it I’d actually buy it for myself.
Purina Beneful Dog Biscuits
Apparently this one smelt so good that even the cats wanted it. They ripped open the bag before I could even give our dog, Jazz, a try of it! I didn’t hear any complaints from him about it though. He also enjoyed the taste of these biscuits.
