This is good stuff! It’s a sweet sauce flavoured with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey Liqueur and is perfect drizzled over chicken or ribs. I’ve used other Jack Daniel’s sauces before but this one was much sweeter, I’ll definitely buy it again.Degustabox-May-pastaGarofalo Fusilli pasta – £1.99

I wasn’t really a massive fan of these two drinks, they were a little too sweet for my taste buds. Their 4% alcoholic drinks brewed purely from crushed cranberries.

They will be great in the Summer months if you like sweet drinks. Degustabox-May-KalloKallo Belgian Milk Chocolate corn cakes – £1.29

Dtae nectar is 100% pure dates. It’s a very unusual product and not something I could really imagine our family using. The texture is quite unusual but it doesn’t taste bad.

Sun ripened in Calafornia orchards the almonds are sweet and tasty and the bag is the perfect size for snacking on between meals.

Made using pomegranates from Californian orchards, this stuff is delicious. I buy it now and again to drink with vodka, so I was pleased to see it in my Degustabox.
