As you’ll have seen from my previous Degustabox review, I am pretty taken with the idea of receiving a box full of goodies to try out. The beauty of Degustabox for me has been that with each box I have discovered new brands which I’ve enjoyed and have gone on to use again.
This box came crammed with products from MOMA!, Shaken Udder, Mexican Dave, Organico, Drink Me, Tyrrells, Schwartz. My favourites from this box have to be the Schwartz Flavour Shots and the Organico Wholewheat pasta and tomato sauce. Roy and the boys really stepped up this month (no hardship, trust me!) when it came to helping me test the Moma Porridge, the Tyrrells popcorn, the nachos from Mexican Dave and the Shaken Udder flavoured milk drinks. The Shaken Udder drinks (two of which went to school in packed lunch boxes) got rave reviews as did the rest of the man-tested snacks and foods (the MOMA! porridge was apparently particularly filling).
None of us like Chai Latte’s etc so rather than waste this item I shared the Degustabox love with my friend Clare who’s opinion was that the first thing she tasted was cinnamon however overall the items from Drink Me were extremely pleasant. She wouldn’t have gone out and bought these herself as she wouldn’t have thought she would like them however now she just might!
The Organico range was a clear winner for us. A lot of our foods are wholemeal or wholewheat anyway so the pasta was always going to be popular. The sauce however… a real superstar product. To most a tomato / pasta sauce is a bog standard sauce and I usually agree, making my own nine times out of ten. This sauce however is something special and I am desperately trying to source some locally so I can stock up!
The boys certainly enjoyed it!
The Schwartz Flavour Shots are my absolute favourite, so versatile, so easy to use and so full of flavour!
Eat of the Flavour Shots come with a recipe to follow however I like to do my own thing. This was one of those throw together meals using the Italian Creamy Herb Tagliatelli Flavour Shot with spring onions, mushrooms and chicken. The flavours over not overpowering yet really do pack a punch! We’ve had several cobbled together meals as well as those that come with the Shots and none have disappointed.
“Would you like a free £5 to use on 888Ladies on the Millionaire Genie game?” I was hardly going to say no, was I? I admit I have a bit of a thing for a spot of bingo now and then however 888Ladies was new to me so I thought why not?
As per instructions I registered and while waiting for my £5 account top up I explored the site. Lucky for me there was free bingo running (for newbies) and I managed to win 4000 loyalty points which I’ll be able to convert to actual pounds if I chose the make an actual deposit in the future.
While playing away I had the opportunity to have a bit of a nosy and I have to say that 888Ladies is by far one of the most simple sites bingo sites to navigate and yet doesn’t lack anything in its simplicity.
With my £5 loaded I headed over to one of the instants, Millionaire Genie, and proceeded to lose my £5. Don’t get me wrong, it took me twenty five very enjoyable minutes to do so as I would win a little and lose a little, and while lady luck wasn’t smiling on me that day I still enjoyed the exercise enormously.
For me sites such as 888Ladies and games such as bingo or instants like Millionaire Genie are a bit of fun. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink and being something of a home bod I relish a night in rather than a night out so a little flutter now and then with low cost stakes (on Millionaire Genie as with most games you can choose your “bet”) it is a bit of uncomplicated fun.
Is Millionaire Genie my favourite game? Not my absolute favourite, although I am glad I’ve tried it out as I did enjoy myself, and while I won’t be voting for it in the Which Bingo awards (for the UK’s favourite bingo games) I imagine many will. I will however be voting for 888Ladies in other categories as I’ve enjoyed myself on the site enormously.
I’ll be looking forward to seeing the results of the awards as these serve as a great way to find new games that real users have voted for and have enjoyed. Who knows, I might even strike it lucky on one of them?
If you fancy a go at Millionaire Genie (a fun game with everything to win!) and you do strike it lucky, do remember where you heard of it
If not, make sure you vote for your favourite game and give the fun-seekers like me a heads up on what to try next time.
