Influenster Feast VoxBox

I would like the thank my followers, and Influenster for making it possible for me to get my first VoxBox! Saying goodbye to November and kicking it off with December, I am grateful for a lot of things, and in Thanksgiving day, I had the chance to share my feast box with my love ones. I would also like to disclose that I got these products as complimentary for testing purposes. 

Thankful for the VoxBox!

Around October I received my box but I've been so busy with college I never really got around to taste test any of the stuff until Thanksgiving day. It was great timing to finally get my stubby paws with what I got. I had to prevent my sister from eating the chocolate biscuits and trying out the teas before I could review them. LOL!!! Anyway this is what the VoxBox looks like:

Very happy I received my box

Here is what I got: Arnott's Tim Tam Dark Mint Biscuits, Del Monte Fresh Cut Whole Kernel Corn, French's Crispy Jalapenos, Bigelow Benefits Herbal Teas (Ginger & Peach, Lemon & Echinacea) and coupons I could use for the near future!

Look at all my goodies 👀👀👀

The first thing I really wanted to try was the Tim Tam biscuits (I LOVE chocolate! What can I say?!) I notice how thick these biscuits were and had a beautiful rich color. When I tried it it was very sweet and minty, it was like winter was already starting in my mouth. These are one of the best chocolate biscuits I've ever had and will most likely start buying some in the near future.

These biscuits were awesome! I would definitively look out and buy in the near future. 

I tried out the Ginger & Peach Herbal Tea in the morning of Thanksgiving. Details on the back of the Ginger & Peach says "For those who love a CALM STOMACH everyday. Steep 4 minutes." The natural ingredients are peppermint, wild orange leaves, chamomile, peach and ginger. It also has other flavors like licorice root, marshmallow root, and fennel. By opening the small packet, the burst of flavors all came out like a rainbow after the rain. After steeping it for 4 minutes, I strongly smell the peppermint, ginger, and peach. The taste has a natural sweetness that's coming from the licorice root, while my throat felt a soothing sensation most likely coming from the marshmallow root, and fennel. As for the Lemon & Echinacea Herbal Tea, I gave it a try later in the afternoon. Its purpose is meant for "Looking to STAY WELL everyday." Also to be steeped for 4 minutes. The ingredients are echinacea, lemongrass, natural lemon flavor, fennel, licorice root, peppermint, sage, plantain leaves, elder flowers, marshmallow root, rose hips, thyme, and lemon balm. It had a calming lemony scent, and it isn't as sweet as the Ginger & Peach, however it did keep me energized and removed stress - something I totally needed since college has packed me with a lot of homework! I also received a coupon from Bigelow that will save me 55¢.

 These 2 are something I would drink in my morning and afternoon routine 👍

My next review is the French's Crispy Jalapenos. These jalapeno crisps are light and crunchy with a mild heat that builds up once you chew more than a few. It has varied shade of green mixed in, and it's perfect to have it on tacos, potato poppers, or even bacon garlic knots! I personally mixed the crisp with the pre-made nacho cheese dip I got from the grocery store. It really spiced up my Thanksgiving! I received a card from French's that has a recipe for Crunchy Jalapeno Mac & Cheese and Jalapeno Pretzel Dogs. 

This is a must if you need to spice up your meals 💥

Lastly I had the opportunity to try the Del Monte Fresh Cut Whole Kernel Corn when I made congee (rice porridge) with turkey, carrots, potatoes, spices, and the kernel corns. The quality of the corn kernels were superb, and came out of the can fresh. It complimented my congee's flavor too! My rice porridge kept my family full for days even after Thanksgiving. Thank you Del Monte for the corn! 

The congee was HEAVENLY! 

Finally, I received a coupon and a recipe card of Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust from Country Crock. I haven't used the coupon yet which offers me to get one FREE Country Crock Buttery Sticks! I'm pretty sure I'll have the chance to use them up for my Christmas grocery shopping within a few weeks. 

Hooray for Coupons!!! The butter coupon will be perfect for making cookies in Christmas 

Hope you guys enjoyed my personal review and test run on these products. 😃
