March Flavourly 2014 – Release more yums.

Hey, it’s Jason with another unboxing of the delicious UK food subscription box. Shall we begin?

Image

 

The first couple things you’ll notice straight away is that the box itself is a pretty decent size and is packaged with the environment in mind, as it’s packaging is recycled shredded card. All of the items are covered over with brown paper held together by the Flavourly seal. To the items…

 

ImageFirst thing is first – Previns Garlic Chilli Chutney. This is incredibly aromatic with definite hints of chilli. You can mix this with tomato purée to make your pizza sauce something extra special. Add this to a simple bolognese to make your pasta dishes stand out from the rest for family dinners; especially if your having guests and friends over for a house dinner. It certainly smells as excellent as it tastes.

ImageSpeaking of pasta and tomato dishes; this sun dried tomato paste from Mezze (purchasable on shop.myolivebranch.co.uk) is sure to give your pasta source a kick. You can enjoy it spread on some crisp golden bruschetta, on sandwiches that need a little jazzing up. An amazing idea would be to use this in a juicy chicken marinade; you can always just enjoy it with a spoon from the jar.

ImageThis is a pretty good snack for people that are on the go or are just wanting to have something as they work away on their computers. These are curry flavoured dried corn snacks and they’re pretty tasty.

 

ImageMore goodies from Previns. This is their curry kit for brining new flavours to baked beans. If you don’t like the tinned stuff, you can always buy some beans from your supermarket and prepare them in some home made tomato sauce using the sun dried tomato paste (it’s great when everything can be tied together). I haven’t tried this yet, but when I do I shall report back as I’m sure it’ll be awesomely yummy.

ImageWoo chocolate! This tasty little number is called Venezuelan Gold by Willie’s Cocoa. This is one of the best smelling chocolate squares I’ve ever smelled; I don’t know what that says about me. But trust me, with a value of £3, it’s totally worth it. I recommend that you check out the website. It’s full of all sorts of delicious.

ImageI apologise for the blurriness of this picture as I’m not very successful at taking pictures with one hand, anyway. These, if you can’t tell from that awesome picture, are wasabi pumpkin seeds. Although I really enjoy the flavour of wasabi, I’m still not that keen on pumpkin seeds. That being put aside; I’m also the only one in the family that enjoys the taste of wasabi, so I’m probably going to eat them anyway. 😛

ImageThis is some delicious soup that I’m quite exited to try. I’ve never tasted, nor heard of, Pheasant Mulligatawny; however, I bet it tastes awesome. Yet another website for you lovely people to click through.

ImageThe last thing in this magnificent box is the Tea Huggers: Good Night tea. These guys have tea for anything, whether it’s chilling out on a nice warm sofa or having a nice calm wake up with a mug of tea. The reason this is last on this post is that I’m going to drink it later and just enjoy it.

Kracie world: Teeny Tiny Burgers!

Hey guys, it’s Jason once again with another crazy Kracie kit…and this time it’s a tiny happy meal for one. If you don’t know what ‘Kracie’ is; I’ll say it in brief. Kracie is a Japanese candy manufacturer that often has candy or sweets that you can make your self at home with great easy; often these sweets resemble real foods that are savoury. I did another review earlier; you can look it up in the archives. Now let’s get ‘cooking.

 

Image

Everything is packaged in really creatively designed boxes or packets. Everything you need is inside in a foil packet. When you get these; you must keep the foil packaging as it is also used in the process, in this case the foil packet is used for the tiny flag for the burgers, the chip holder and the label for the drink cup. Shamefully, I had accidentally ripped mine opening it (should be more careful next time).

Image

As I said, all you need to make the food is in the packet. You can see there are multiple sachets; these are for all of the food you’ll be using, the big white tub is used to mix all of the powders with water. There is also a drinks cup as well as a mixing spoon/shovel and tiny knife…which is quite adorable.

ImageImage

So, these are the chips. They really do smell like chips. I mean, incredibly so. I must say you do have to cook them in the microwave but only for a short time (like 30 seconds). Next…to the burger.

 

ImageImage

This is the cute and tiny burger complete with buns. I really have to say that the powder and mix for the burger isn’t unpleasant but ,wow, it’s ‘meaty’. Honestly, I smells a lot like BBQ noodles or something along the same lines and it’s one of the strangest things ever. The buns, on the other hand, smell so good; they smell buttery as if the were fresh bread (without the yeasty scent). Once again, popped them in the microwave for a little bit and took them out. I used the knife to cut the tiny burger to size which was pretty fun-feeling even if it is just cutting a tiny cake burger with a tiny plastic knife.

Image 

I only have two words for this…TINY CHEESE! Once again, not an unpleasant smell or taste but incredibly cheesy to the tier of nachos/doritos.

Image

There is also a packet of ketchup powder which, with water, turns into a gel-like substance that tastes exactly like the real thing. That’s probably because is ketchup just dehydrated into water with a further coagulant added. Tastes totally good though. I bet you’re thinking ‘All of this food might be a little drying, is there anything to wash it down with?’; there is.

Image

Here is your drink sir/madam/octopus/Hugh. Once again works on the same lines as the ketchup, just without the extra coagulant. Although small, it follows the rest very well and its just so adorable and fun for something to inexpensive and easy to make. If you can’t figure out what to do; there are loads of videos on YouTube.
