I was lucky enough to have been sent this campaingn kit from Bzz Agent.
Crusha Milkshake mix- Strawberry
There have been the likes of Nesquik powdered milkshake mixes that we as a family have tried before but to me they were costly and also left a powdery texture in the mouth.
The latest product we have been enjoying from the milkshake mix were the Nesquik straws.
You basically fill your cup with milk then pop in the straw and drink .
The straw is filled with little balls of flavoured mix which then mix with the milk as you suck through the straw and all of the children really enjoyed them .
Usually buying them from £ shop for a pack of 10, the kids love them and it makes it easy for me to make especially when my youngest son enjoys one or two before bed and I am rushing around sorting housework.
Crusha has been a brand that I have seen many of times , mainly the annoying advert of cats dancing around with obstacles of gym bells or street wear dance style clothing in that annoying advert with the song
''I want some crusha, some lovely crusha, no added sugar , it tastes so great''
Yes now you remember , that one that gets stuck in your head for days on end and is rather addictive although we cant stand hearing it .
Well luckily they brought the new advert out , without that terrible tune and to me it seems a lot better.
The kit includes-
What Crusha have to say about their product-
Milk – it’s naturally full of amazing health benefits for bones, teeth and hydration but it can also taste a little boring. So getting all that goodness into your kids may be a bit of a struggle at times! Crusha is the perfect way to make milk more interesting – all you do is add it into a glass of milk, and hey presto! Instant milkshake quicker than you can say “I don’t even need to stir this!” Not only does it taste great, it’s also free from artificial flavours and colours.

Our thoughts on the milkshake mix -
So the kit came through the door and I have to admit the cute beaker was quite exciting as I knew my son would love it.
Little bit flimsy in the sense if the little one squeezed it (as they do) then it would break, not very solid but cute non the less .
The bottle of Crusha looked very appealing , although I am still confused as to why they use a cat on the front . It is not like it is a cat milk drink.
The mix is a undiluted syrup and very red in colour, not natural looking at all and certainly does not look full of goodness or healthy.
It says on the bottle no need to mix but then says mix it up .
Yes confusing to say the least but I gave it a go.
Adding a small amount of syrup then filling the beaker with cold milk you see the colour mixing into a lovely baby pink shade so I did not mix .
It looks like milkshake and smells like milkshake .
The smell seems quite strong actually , very strong strawberry sweet aroma.
Having a taste before giving it to my son, I realise it is very sweet and diluted it a little more with milk to take the strong kick of sweetness away.
The taste is actually very nice, unlike Nesquik , it does not have a powdery texture or bitter taste and has a lovely strawberry taste.
It is quite sweet but is very tasty.
There is not much more I can say other than it tastes of strawberry but the children really enjoyed it. We have used half a bottle on 8 drinks so the price is fantastic for how well it lasts as you do only need a small amount .
I think I will definitely be picking it up when I am in store next as they thought it was tasty . Maybe give the chocolate one a try next .
Do you like milkshake mix's , will you be giving this a try ?
