Now that I’ve had a good look at the goodies inside my Winter Inspiration Box from Black Box NZ. I can do a reasonably good review on my opinions on those products that I received.
In all honesty, I love crumpets. I buy them all the time when money allow me to just for myself. I especially love them smothered in melting butter. Golden crumpets definitely hit the spot and I was even nice enough to share them with my Mother!
Alfa One Rice Bran Oil
It’s a shame that the sample bottle was so small because this was a nice oil. It was a really nice tasting oil and the sample bottle lasted for 3 different meals. This is one that my Mother buys on a regular basis and while I would love to, I find that the price and size just doesn’t compete with the larger bottles at a cheaper price.
Campbell’s Pumpkin & Smoky Bacon Soup
Ok, I was totally disappointed by this product. I expected a lot more flavour and it came across as quite bland tasting. It certainly isn’t really what I would call the “chef quality soup” that the campaign booklet describes it as. I certainly won’t be buying this one at all.
Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Extra Protect
I’ve tried the preventative version a couple of times but I have to say this one is a much nicer and milder taste. I also haven’t had any tooth pain since I started trialing it. This is definitely one for the shopping list in my opinion.
Harraways Oats Single Serve Sachets
I received both the Vanilla & Berry flavour and the Chia, Coconut & Cranberry flavour in my Winter Inspiration Box and I have to admit that I enjoyed both. I would probably declare the Chia one as my absolute preference of the two. But I do think that they need to make a bigger serve. Especially when aiming at adults.
Thompson’s Animals Junior Immunofort
This one was a definite hit with my kids. They love comparing with each other to see which animal they got and it must taste great because they keep coming back for another each day.
Nutters Nutty Deluxe
I was actually quite disappointed with this one. For some reason I actually expected more from it. Instead it tasted no different to the mixes I’ve put together from the bulk bin instead.
Paseo Ultra Soft Tissue Box
These tissues were so soft and the aloe vera was really soothing. And with the head cold I had been fighting all weekend and been dealing with even now, it was a lifesaver! I’m just sad that I ran through the box so quickly.
Heineken Light Beer
I didn’t actually try this one for myself. Eugene is a bigger beer drinker than I am so he had this one. He wouldn’t call it the best he’s ever had but it wasn’t too bad either.
Simon Gault Stock Concentrate
I received the chicken stock concentrate from this range and I’m pretty keen to try the others. I enjoyed the chicken one so much in my cooking that I went out and purchased another pouch of it when my Winter Inspiration sample was finished!
