Nando's Peri-Peri Sauce (Medium)

 Well, well, well. I got this in a Degustabox and I was pretty excited, because everyone loves Nando's but I've never gone since I know they serve nuts. (I've heard they're quite good about allergens if you inform them, but it seems quite the hassle for some chicken). Anyway, excited to try this sauce, I bought an entire chicken, dumped it on there, and heated it up. It was pretty good. Spicy but not very spicy (it is medium, after all), a bit creamy, and overall a nice taste that's a little more unique than a garden variety hot sauce. This bottle isn't actually that much sauce, since I used it in like 2 weeks or ~4 chickens! My favorite is one chicken breast grilled in this on 2 small potato buns. Livin' the dream.

Cost: 6/10
Taste: 7/10

MadeGood Granola Minis (Mixed Berry)

Hey there, fans of peanut-free food! It's been a while, I know. But I got these recently and thought they were really good! Unfortunately, when trying to track them down, it seems that they are a Canadian company with products only available at Whole Foods in the US, or possibly on Delta airplanes (am I crazy, or is that a terrible match for fans of peanut-free food though?)! Anyway, though it may have been a one-time love affair, these granola bites are delicious. They're very sweet and chewy and have nice chunks of fruit in there, but overall the taste is just regular granola - which I think should really be the ultimate goal with these "organic 8x allergen free GMO gluten free etcetc" products. So, they're tasty. And apparently there's vegetables inside, which is hilarious, though you can't taste it at all. They're also really cute and convenient to eat. No crumbs! I'd be very curious to try the other flavors, all of which are nut-free and sound good.
