Degustabox | May 2017

After being a little bit disappointed with last month’s Degustabox, I was looking forward to this one, hoping that it would be back to the usual standard that we love. It was delivered on time, as usual, by our DPD driver. We get a slot so we know exactly what time it will be delivered, and if we know that we aren’t going to be in, we can arrange for it to be left in a safe place.

It’s always an exciting moment when the Degustabox is delivered and opened, and this month was no exception. We were generally pretty happy with everything this time – much better than the previous one!

What was in this month’s Degustabox?

Zeo Soft Drinks – RRP £1.19.

I drank this over some ice on one of those really hot days we had, and man, it was LUSH. I’ve said before how I’m not a fan of pop usually, but this was gorgeous. I bet it’s lovely with gin or vodka as well!

Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer – RRP £1.89

Degustabox

Ginger beer on a hot summers day is probably my favourite thing in the whole world after gin, so his was an absolute WIN!

Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp  – RRP £3.49

Big Bar. Chocolate. Peanut. Caramel. Crispy bits. Can you actually get much better?

MOMA Gluten Free Raspberry and Coconut Bircher Muesli – RRP £3.20

Degustabox

I love muesli, so I really liked this. The raspberry and coconut gave it a lovely sweet taste. I just have it with normal milk.

Millions – 3 x £0.60

I don’t really like sweets, so I didn’t try these. The boys and Graham appeared to enjoy them though!

Cereal Lovers CrunchTime Nuggets – RRP £1.59

I really liked these. They’re great for keeping in the cupboard to grab a handful after a run.

Deli Kitchen Skinni Wrap – RRP £1.25

We love wraps as an alternative to sandwiches, but they sometimes get so messy to eat. These are shaped perfectly so that you don’t have to deal with all the fillings falling out of the end. Plus, they’re under 100 calories each!

Homepride Strong White Bread Flour – RRP £1.50

Degustabox

I thought this was a slightly odd addition to the box. I know we won’t use it but my mum has a breadmaker so I have given it to her to use. There is a relatively simple recipe on the back for homemade bread if you wanted to have a go. I did like the way it came in a tub rather than those silly bags that always seem to split in the cupboard!

Candy Kittens – RRP £3.00

As I said above, I’m not a fan of sweets in general. However, I did try these and they were actually quite nice. They’re sour, but not overly so.

Portlebay Popcorn – RRP £0.79

Degustabox

This was really lovely. It had a real kick to it, so I was surprised when Benjamin demolished half of the packet with me!

Hippeas In Herbs We Trust – RRP £1.50

Unfortunately, this was the one thing in the Degustabox this month that we didn’t like. The taste itself was alright, but the texture was a bit odd – almost like a gritty feeling in my mouth.

Last item aside, we really enjoyed this month’s Degustabox. It costs just £12.99 a month, but the value of the contents is always much higher than that. You can order yours on the Degustabox website.
