Inside this May Box:

Skinny Wraps: I always have wraps at home, but wraps with 100 calores less is always good to have! Lovely taste! Great to make some burritos to the picnic.


Homepride White bread flour: A brand that everyone knows now with this version for good homemade bread. See recipe below.


Portlebay Popcorn in Sriracha: spicy spicy, great with the Ginger beer in the box.


Crunch Time nuggets from Cereal lovers: healthy snacks.


Moma Bircher Muesli: not your normal muesli, since this one is more thing, and gluten free. Did you know that you can make muesli with juice? I didn’t!


Bean Bags from RawBean: Coffee in tea bags? They aren’t very strong, so it will make a great americano… can you do a picnic without coffee? No! Great taste!!


Hippeas organic chickpea puffs: the evolution of puffs! Great taste for a healthy snack without feeling guilty.


Candy Kittens in Sour Watermelon: Gluten free gourmet sweets. Fresh and great taste.


Millions: chocolate covered strawberry. i didnt knew this brand. So basically is strawberry chewy sweets covered in chocolate…delicious and lasted little here at home.


Millions in sour strawberry: from the same brand of the previous photo. loved these ones!


Cadbury Big taste in Peanut caramel crisp: Hubby liked them very much! taste of peanut butter caramel with crunchiness added.


Zeo in Orange and Mango: great when really fresh and with only 33 calories? Delish!!


Crabbie’s Ginger Beer (alcoholic): Serve really cold and with spicy snacks, is the best experience.
