The monthly Flavourly box review is back! It took some time to actually get hold of the October box because of some delivery problems. However, now it´s safe and sound at home and ready to be enjoyed!
So what was waiting for me this time?
Garlic and rosemary rye sourdough crisps from Plain Tasty – I ate them with the olive tapenade I got some time ago. Not sure if they were intended to be consumed this way, but I liked it!
Hot toffee nuts – caramelised jumbo peanuts with a hint of chilli by VIP Nuts – it will be good for snacking, probably next time during a film in a cinema.
Lightly salted coconut curls by Ape Snacks – I have never had salty coconut, I´m curious about the flavour! I usually eat coconut flakes added to a plain yoghurt, but these are salty, so I´m just gonna munch on them.
Lightly spiced chickpea crisps by Chika´s – these will be good with the rest of the olive tapenade or any other dip.
Vegetable crisps by Scrubbys (beetroot, sweet potato, parsnip and carrot crisps with sea salt) – I really like these alternative crisps. These are gone already and they were really nice. I like vegetable crisps, the flavour is much better than common potato crisps. My thoughts about vegetable crisps in general usually are: are the producers´ claims that they also contain less fat, actually true or not?
Raspberry marshmallow coated in 70% dark chocolate by Mallow and Marsh – this bar has fallen victim to my yesterday´s sweet tooth. It was really delicious, the marshmallow is fluffy and the chocolate coating and raspberry seeds are crunchy, so it makes a nice contrast.
Rosemary and sea salt biscuits by Angelic – not my favourite. I´ll bring them to share in the office.
Bhuna (curry kit) by Hari Ghotra – please no more products with fennel and coriander. This is definitely not my cup of tea. However, I found somebody who I´m redirecting these products to, so it´s gonna be enjoyed anyways.
Green tea with ginseng by Tg Green Tea – a good one, it will help me concentrate on Monday at work.
Medium hot pili pili sauce by MaRobert´s – it´s a spicy tomato Tanzanian sauce made in the UK. I´m curious.
Zesty orange curd by Scarlett and Mustard – yes, I like curds, being it lemon, lime or orange.
Umami spiced garlic purée by Laura Santini – it says garlic purée, but the ingredients are really interesting for garlic paste: miso, soy sauce, lemon and yuzu juice, mirin (the last two I had to google up), ginger… How do you use a paste like this? Any tips?
