I have another Black Box NZ review for you! This time it’s the High Summer Box which was filled with all sorts of yummy goodies, both old and new!
THE HIGH SUMMER BOX
Y.E.L.O Classic Tomatoes
I think this is about the third time I have received these in a black box. I have already reviewed them in the Summer Black Box. As always, they are very yummy and our opinion of them has not changed.
Dairyworks Ice Cream
Unfortunately, this was the one product in the box I have been unable to try. Despite the campaign booklet telling me I can collect my free one from the New World in Waipukurau, I have been unable to find it there and I have not been able to go into the New World in Havelock North or the Pak’nSave in Napier to look for it there.
Tip Top Deluxe Torpedo Rolls
These were so yummy! The whole family enjoyed them and one roll was enough to fill each adult and our oldest child a third of a roll each for the three younger kids. They were so light and tasty and very versatile.
Patak’s Pappadums and Mango Chutney
We were very impressed with both products. The mango chutney had just the right amount of sweetness and spice to be ultra delicious. The pappadums were quick and easy to prepare and were yummy in their own right.
WeightWatchers Protein Bar
These were really sweet and had a very strong caramel taste. I think it was probably a little too sweet for my own taste although the kids enjoyed the small taste they got of it. It did have a nice crunch to it though.
Schick Hydro Silk Razor
Easy to use and left my skin feeling silky smooth.
Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief Toothpaste
This was a product I have had before in the Warmth and Comfort Box. However this is one of the few times where prolonged use of it has changed my mind about the product. Apart from being a little too strong in flavour I have found that prolonged use has actually benefited my teeth.
Stoke Hand Crafted Beer
We received the Cheeky Czech flavour of this beer and I’m sad to say that neither Eugene or myself liked it. For me it just tasted like a dark ale. Eugene said that it tasted too fruity. We ended up tipping half the bottle out because neither of us wanted to finish it.
Villa Maria Lightly Sparkling Rosé
This was actually a little drier tasting and not as sweet as I expected it to be. However it was still a very nice wine and I liked it very much.
Somersby Apple Cider with a taste of Blackberry
Again, this is a product I have reviewed before in the Home Entertainer Box. My opinion of it has not changed since then.
