FlavrBox / November Edition

ooohhhh, It's always exciting to receive a box full of yummy goodies... and this is the BEST box so far, in my opinion! Here I give you november's FlavrBox:
Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company - Cheddar Cheese Straws
I had to open these within 3 minutes of getting the box *greedy*
They taste even better than I expected - they are like puff pastry sticks, full of cheeseness flavours (of course, you must love cheese and I personally would marry cheese, if I could!). NEEDTOFINDMOREOFTHESE!!!
Rossini's Rub - Panch Phoron
I must say I'm not a big fan of marinades because I don't like meat and don't cook it from scratch very often; also, I prefer my vegetables 'au naturel'. This tin is a pretty generous size and could last for years, I reckon. They suggest to mix the seeds with some oil to create a paste - great tip and will give it a go with some fish.
Jing Tea - Ali Shan Tea
This is a seriously weak tasting tea (or maybe I can't bloody brew it properly).
Anyway, it is very very light in taste which is not such a bad thing because I can avoid to put any sweetener in it. It's described as hearty and refreshing and yes, that is just spot on - I couldn't find better words to describe it myself.
These are actually tea pearls, which I had never tried before, and  can be re-used three/four times, apparently.
Sundowner - Parmesan, Olive & Rosemary Biscotti
I can't deny these biscotti (more like crackers?!) taste very familiar - parmesan & olives are part of the typical italian diet and some of my favourite things... so I could only end up loving them!
Apart from the burst of authentic flavour, I was pleasantly surprised to find them quite moist and not dry, thanks to the olives.
I also received the nut mix from Sundowner, last month, but I haven't had the chance to try them yet.
The Pelagonia Range - Aivar
Another utterly delicous product! If you can only try 1 product from this box, I have to recommend this one.
It takes so authentic and fresh and with high quality ingredients.
Apparently, this brand works in partnership with over 650 families from the Pelagonia valley, in the south-west of Macedonia. They source and create these delicious, authentic recipes from the region and they taste sooo natural that you would think they had just been made in front of your eyes and not our of a jar.
Aivar, in particular, is a blend of roasted peppers and aubergine that can be cooked with chicken, as pasta sauce or simply as a spread. I rocked it with the cheese straws and the Sundowner biscotti!
Chocca Mocca - Real Raspberries Dipped in Fine Dark Chocolate
...and finally dessert!
Delicious raspberry coated in dark chocolate - I love dark chocolate!
Great way to satisfy your sweet tooth and cutting few calories in the process.
I got to say that these boxes never, never fails to please... unfortunately, this is gonna be my last box for a while... back on diet after Christmas. :(
