Unboxing: Tasty VoxBox

Given my passion for food, I was super excited to receive the Tasty VoxBox from Influenster and try out some of the goodies they sent over! Here’s what I got to try.

There was quite a nice variety of goodies, from drinks to condiments. French’s Crispy Jalapeños seemed really interesting and since I love these crunchy snacks I’m pretty excited to see what I can pair these with. Even though I’m not the best at handling spicy foods, I still love the flavor they add!

We were also given a voucher for Country Crock and I ended up choosing these sticks rather than a spread. I’m pretty intrigued by the product and can’t wait to compare the flavor with the butter that I’m used to eating. I’ve also been learning more about food science recently through a class at school so this product has got me thinking about how different baked goods might turn out, so baking is definitely on my to-do list as well.

I did get to try some of the drink products though, especially since I love teas and smoothies. The box had this GOLEAN Dark Cocoa Powder Plant-Powered Shake that’s vegan and gluten free. I’ve never really tried protein shakes but this one seemed to be really healthy and yummy. I decided to make a Chocolate Strawberry Shake and just blended some strawberries, soy milk, and half a serving of the protein powder. Chocolate and strawberry flavors go really well together even when blended, but I’d recommend using a more watery liquid or less of the powder so that it doesn’t overpower the other flavors. Overall it was really yummy and filling and I’d definitely make it again.

I was also super excited to see that we got to try some flavors of Yogi Tea. I love Yogi so much because they have a ton of interesting blends for different occasions, however I hadn’t tried either of the teas Influenster sent before. I thought this Cinnamon Berry Probiotic Balance was amazing because unlike some other cinnamon flavored teas I’ve tried before, this one didn’t leave a weird taste in my mouth and the berry flavor paired really well with it.

I’m definitely excited to keep using these ingredients and this VoxBox has really helped me break out of a more dull cooking routine and try new recipes.
