- Degustabox: July'16...

Playing catch-up with Degustabox* again :) Join me and have a nosy at the latest food and drink treats. If you're new to my blog and not heard of Degustabox before, it costs just £12.99 (inc. delivery) for a selection of 9-14 surprise food and drink items, most of which are new to the market. If, like me, you end up picking up the same items during your weekly food shop, this box is perfect for you to make new discoveries and try things you might otherwise miss out on.

As always, Degustabox have kindly provided me with a discount code to share with you: simply type 'BLDEG15' when registering to get £7.00(!!!) off!

So let's see what they have to offer this time around...

Jordans Muesli, RRP: £2.79

This swiss style muesli is a perfect breakfast option with greek yoghurt and honey or soaked overnight with chia seeds, milk and grated apple. It has a good mix of oats vs fruit which is good as I hate when other brands scrimp on contents.

Sarson's Balsamic Vinegar, RRP: £1.99
Felix Gerkhins, RRP: £2.15

There's always space for balsamic in my cupboard and even better when it's Sarson's. Unfortunately I can't say the same about the gherkins *yuck* - should I do a giveaway? ;)

Seabrooks Crisps, RRP: £1.99
itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins, RRP: £1.00 (each)

Crisps are my weakness and even more so when the flavours get adventurous. These chorizo ones are divine and I love the lattice detail as it holds in all the flavour! The seaweed thins were definitely an interesting one to try out - I had them as a snack on their own but kind of wished I saved them and ate them with rice and salmon to create some sort of sushi concoction.

Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles Infusions, RRP: £1.29
Brookside Chocolates, RRP: £3.40
Bahlsen Choco Leibniz, RRP: £0.40 (each)

Fruit pastilles are such a blast from the past! They've come a long way since I used to gorge on them and it's nice to see they're not quite as bad for you as they used to be, plus they have a wider range of flavours - this bag contains orange & grapefruit, raspberry & pomegranate and elderflower & apple. The chocolates are the perfect small treat and the taste of dark chocolate and blurberry works wonderfully together. As for the biscuits, this brand are one of my favourites - the chocolate is soo dreamy.

Cracker Drinks, RRP: £1.50
ALO Drink, RRP: £2.45
Rejuvenation Water, RRP: £1.99
Berry White, RRP: £1.39 (each)
QCucumber, RRP: £1.59

There were a lot of drinks to try out this time round. My favourite has to be the carton of pineapple, coconut & lime which I've been using as a base in spinach and banana smoothies. I liked all of the other drinks apart from the aloe vera one, which had off-putting jelly lumps in - not the ideal texture for a drink.

This month's box was an interesting one as there were so many items I hadn't tried before and that were new to me. It was a fun one to try out but I have to say the August box was a lot better - stay tuned as I'll be posting about it soon, it may just be my favourite yet.... What do you think of this Degustabox? Don't forget, you can receive your first box for just £5.99 using the discount code above!

  1. Wow you actually get so much food in this box, it's such good value for money! The muesli sounds like a winner and that pineapple coconut and lime juice sounds lovely!

  2. Hmm, this box didn't interest me at all and I personally think it's not as good as the other boxes that I've seen. But that's just my personal taste though and I can be pretty anal about my snacks. LOL!

  4. I was most interested in the sweets and biscuits I have to say! I'm kind of curious to try those vamped up fruit pastilles. And I think you should do a giveaway with the gherkins just for the lols! x
