Flavrbox review

The lovely folk over at Flavrbox sent a beautifully packaged box of gorgeous goodies to try. At the moment you can pick from regular or vegetarian and soon they will be offering tea, spirits, gluten-free and a few other selections. The box I was sent was a regular Flavrbox.

I’ve always found food hampers to make good Christmas and birthday gifts but I think brands such as Flavrbox might be the way forward. This is a selection box for foodies!


There was a good selection of snacks, treats and condiments. I’d never tried anything in the box before and was delighted to see some award winners lurking about inside.

IMG_3540The first thing I took out of the box was this cute little pack of rosemary rock salt. This is form a brand called Flavourmagic. They offer a wide variety of premium rock salts and spice blends.

Next up was Scrumshus granola, another beautifully packaged item. This luxurious granola contains no added sugar, salt or preservatives and even won a Grate Taste Gold Award in July 2011. I’ve not got ’round to trying it out yet, but I’ll be sure to update you when I do.

I’m pretty sure I tried this bottle of mulling syrup the day it arrived. Selsley have come up with this handy bottle of spices to add to mulled wine, cider or apple juice. I’m a huge fan of mulled wine and can confirm that this mulling syrup does a very good job a spicing up your red wine. It’s handy to have in the house for this evenings where you’ve run out of spices.

IMG_3557This fancy pants popcorn from Joe & Seph’s is bloody delicious, and I’m not normally a popcorn fan. The bag in my box was coated in smooth caramel and crunchy peanut butter. This stuff is well packaged, super sweet and very crunchy.

Finally there was this tin of Chocca Mocca drinking chocolate. I’ve not had the chance to try it yet but I’m looking forward to heating up the chocolate on a cold night.

A box costs £18 and delivery is just £2 – this would make a very nice birthday or Christmas gift for family and friends. You can sign up and get a box every month, as a one off treat or once a quarter.
