Flavour Box. Flavourly provide a monthly 'taste box' delivery packed with carefully selected products from independent artisan food producers in the UK
I was excited to see what would be in the January Flavour Box and I wasn't disappointed. Here's what was in the Tasting Box I received for review, and here is what I thought:
Greefs Isle of Wight, Bilton Air Cured Beef - I have to say that this really didn't appeal to me, however it does taste of beef and while it is chewy, as would be expected, it does chew farily easily. I would think it would be a talking point as a pre dinner nibble or great for hiking when you need to carry your food on your back!
The Forest Kitchen Traditional Handmade Scottish Fudge 'Whisky' - This was soft and very sweet, the whisky flavour is delicate, I found the fudge rather too soft and sweet but my husband liked it.
The Wee Tea Company, Rooibos & Vanilla Leaf Tea - my heart sank when I saw Redbush Tea as I've never found one that I liked...until now. As it was in the box I thought I'd better give it a go and was pleasantly surprised by how mild the flavour is. The Vanilla seems to compensate for the bitterness of the Redbush leaves.
Eat 17, Bacon Jam - I was a little sceptical about Bacon Jam, but once tasted never forgotten, what a brilliant relish this is, I think I'm addicted!
The highlight of the Flavour Box, for me, were the Traditional Handmade Scottish Oatcakes from The Forest Kitchen and the Northumberland Cheese Company Nettle Cheese.
The oatcakes were crisp and crumbly with lots of oaty texture, the Nettle Cheese is a full fat cows milk cheese, it is smooth and creamy with a lovely combination of nettles and other herbs through it. They complement the cheese rather than overpowering it and the two together were a big hit with all the family.
The Flavourly Flavour Box costs £22 per month and would make a lovely gift for a foodie friend or family member, or as a treat for yourself. What's more for every delicious
