Degustabox | March 2017

I’m sure I say it every single month, but we really do love our Degustabox. The kids get so excited when they see it arrive, and I have to take all the photos straight away so they can get stuck in. This month was no exception, and I think it is probably one of my favourite ones to date.

What was in this month’s Degustabox?

Weetabix On the Go and Protein  – RRP £1.39 for the normal one, £1.99 for the protein one.

Degustabox March 2017

I’ve had the normal one a couple of times before, and they’ve been pretty handy when I’ve been in a rush for breakfast. I think they’re quite expensive but as an occasional thing, they’re great. I really enjoyed the fruity flavour of the protein one.

Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Mylk – RRP £1.89

I really, really liked this. I’d popped it in the fridge first so it was chilled and gave it a really good shake before I opened it. Chocolate and coconut milk smoothies are one of my favourites anyway, so having one pre-made is great. The coconut taste isn’t overpowering at all, so even if coconut isn’t your thing, give this a go.

Pipers Crisps – RRP £2.00

I’m pretty sure we have had Piper’s crisps in a Degustabox before. I’m not a huge fan of crisps – I always find them a bit tasteless and a bit of a waste of calories, but I enjoyed these. Regular salt and vinegar is my least favourite flavour when I do fancy a bag, but these have a good crunch and a nice tang to them, without making you want to suck your cheeks in!

Maldon Smoked Sea Salt Flakes – RRP £1.50

We sprinkled some of this over some white fish fillets and it added a nice, slightly smoky taste to it. I think it’s a really simple way to jazz up something plain – chicken or steak and things like that.

Heinz Seriously Good sauces – RRP £1.99

I have no idea where my photo of this has gone! We were sent the creamy peppercorn flavour, which we will be using on some steak this week.

Dairy Milk Oreo Peanut / Mint – RRP £1.49 x 2

Chocolate, peanut butter and oreo are my three favourite things, so when combined together, it was always going to be a winner. The mint one was pretty lush as well!

Whitworths Super Cacao Raw Bar – RRP £1.50

I thought I would like this more than I did because I usually enjoy these sorts of bars. This one was a bit bland and tasteless though, and expensive for one bar.

The Jelly Bean Factory – RRP £1.49

Jelly beans are one of the few sweets that I do like, so I was pretty chuffed with them. We had fun trying to guess the flavours!

One Pounders Chocolate Eclairs – RRP £1.00

I didn’t even get the chance to take a photo of these before they disappeared into Graham’s work bag. He loves chocolate eclairs, and for £1 for a big bag of them, you can’t go wrong!

Westons Cider – RRP £1.99 x 2

We had two cans – pure hopped cider and Caple RD Dry Cider Blend. I only like flavoured ciders so these weren’t my thing. My dad drank them, and even though he said they were incredibly dry, he enjoyed them.

Gusto Organic Lemon Energy – RRP £1.50

This was delicious! It was really fruity and zingy. I can’t say I noticed that I had any more energy after drinking it, but as a drink, I really liked it!

Overall, I really enjoyed the contents of this month’s box, especially the chocolate, the coconut milk drink and the lemon drink. I think for £12.99, the Degustabox is really good value for money. If you want to try it out for yourself, you can for just £5.99 by entering BLDEG15 at the Degustabox website.

  1. Lots of goodies some I’ve never tried-need thee gusto lemon zing

  2. Cider vinegar and seasalt crisps sounds lovely. Can you get just one Degustabox for a try out?

    1. Yep, you can cancel them at any point. They cost £12.99 a month. There’s a code in the post (can’t remember it off the top of my head) to get £7 off your first box. You could try it out with the discount and cancel if you weren’t keen!
