Degustabox | July 2017

I’m sure you all realise by now just how much I love our Degustabox. If you haven’t read any of my Degustabox reviews before – go and have a look. In about 16 months of having them, I think there has only been one that I’ve been disappointed in – and that wasn’t even that bad. It’s a monthly food and drink subscription box, costing just £12.99. You can cancel them whenever you want (although you won’t want to!) and it’s a great way of trying new or different things. It arrives by DPD and I get an email to tell me exactly when it will arrive, so I can organise for it to be left in a safe place or a redelivery if I’m not in.

July’s Degustabox

Thor Drinks – RRP £1.39 x 2

Degustabox

We had a dry ginger and apple, and mint and apple.  We weren’t overly keen on the mint one – tasted a little bit like toothpaste – but the ginger one was proper lush! It would be nice as a mixer or on its own.

Crafted Drinks Mango and Passionfruit – RRP £1.80

Degustabox

This was gorgeous. Really gorgeous. I was expecting a juice sort of texture but this was a lot thicker, edging towards smoothie thickness, which I think may have been because of the mango. It’s definitely something I’m looking out for again – YUM!

Rowntree’s Randoms 30% Less Sugar – RRP £1.29

Degustabox

These sort of things always go down well between Graham and the kids. I’m not a fan of sweets in general and these were ok – you certainly can’t tell that there’s less sugar in them.

Ryvita Thins Three Cheese – RRP £1.89

Degustabox

These were probably my most favourite thing we’ve had in any Degustabox. They were delicious! They’re crispy and topped with not one, but three types of cheese. I bet they would be amazing with salsa and more cheese, but sadly, they didn’t last that long. It’s definitely something that we will be buying in the future.

Merchant Gourmet Simply Cooked Red & White Quinoa – RRP £1.99

Degustabox

I’ve never had quinoa before. I know it’s one of those really trendy things to eat at the moment, but it just has never appealed to me. It’s in the cupboard ready for an easy lunch one day, but I’m not in a rush to try it if I’m honest.

OLOVES Health Olive Snacks – RRP £0.99 x 2

Degustabox

Olives are one of my favourite things to snack on. We’ve had these before so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. They’re stoned, juicy, covered in chilli, oregano and garlic and are in handy little pouches. I’d probably buy these to take with me on picnics.

Blossom Hill Spritz – RRP £4.99

This photo doesn’t want to turn for some reason – sorry!

I really liked this. It’s perfect for the summer when you fancy an alcoholic drink but don’t want anything too strong.

Fry Light with Avocado Oil – RRP £2.99

Degustabox

I am a fan of fry light, having used it previously when I followed slimming world. As much as I love avocado, I was worried this would make food taste slightly avocado-y, but I couldn’t taste any difference if I’m honest – I’m not sure if I was meant to? Either way, it’s a good product to have in the cupboard and a healthier alternative to normal oil.

Weetabix Additions Coconut & Raisin – RRP £2.99

Degustabox

Weetabix is my favourite cereal so I was looking forward to this. I was a bit disappointed though – it just tasted a bit bland.

Maille Dijon Original – RRP £1.99

Degustabox

Mustard is one of those things we get through a lot of. Some people have ketchup with everything – I have mustard. This was nicely hot and had a lovely flavour to it. I loved it mixed with mashed potato.

We also received a voucher to pick up a full size The Collective Kids Big Tub Yoghurt and  2 x vouchers for Pro-Yo pouches.

I was pretty pleased with most of the products in this month’s box. Whilst a couple of the products weren’t to my taste, I think the range and variety are, as always, excellent. If you want to try out a box for £5.99 (saving a whopping £7), use BLDEG15 at the checkout.
