I clearly remember at school, we were always so excited about bringing some new snacks, drinks and treats to school for our break or lunch. If I see any that I like, I asked mum to buy some of them for me too.

I wish we had a degustabox service then :) although I am not that disappointed as I still take almost all the items from the box to uni.

Let's see what's in the box

String & Things Cheeseshapes - £1.50


Strings and Things Cheeseshape is the new product from the brand that brought cheesestrings. Cheesestrings reminds me of my childhood friend Katie, she always used to have them in her lunchbox and we really enjoyed having it together. Also, you had to peel them slowly and not eat the cheese by just taking a massive bite! Those who ate it will know what I mean! These are completely random shapes & iconic faces of real cheese pieces in the bag and you won't know which one you're going to get. Perfect in the lunch box or after school.

Fruit Bowl Unicorn Flakes Yogurt Raisins Strawberry Yogurt - 49p per pack


In my days we used to take a match size box raisins, but these fruit bowl fruity goodness sounds so good and actually tasted so delicious. Busting with flavourful fruitiness, individually wrapped portions are perfect for lunch box, between meals or on the go. We received all the three items in our box and all of them were so delicious.

Jelly Squeeze Jelly Pouches - 50p per pouch


You don't need a spoon to enjoy this jelly, these are easy, squeezy way to enjoy jelly without any mess. This Jellysqueeze has no sugar, artificial sweeteners and suitable for vegans too. Available in three yummy frutiy flavours, strawberry, orange, and apple & blackcurrant. An ideal addition to any back to school lunchbox or on the go!

Mighty fine began creating these treats in 2014 in a little shop in Camden that was all homemade. Tasty and packed with great ingredients.  A lightly roasted almond, skinny coated in chocolate and dusted in cocoa powder. A real treat!

UFIT Chocolate protein drink - £2


UFIT is a delicious high protein milk shake with no added sugar. This shake was designed to cater for mainstream health-conscious consumers that are looking for a healthy alternative, not just for 'young guys that gym'.
