Degustabox Review

Another month has been and gone ( I know, I know where on earth are they going) and another Degustabox delivery has since landed on our doorstep. We love our box full of surprises and look forward to them arriving every month.

Degustabox is a monthly subscription food box. You pay £12.99 (this includes delivery) and each month you will receive a box of  9 – 14 surprise food products – some of which are new products. The value of items in your box will always be more than what you have paid. However, if you aren’t happy with the service and you wish to cancel your subscription you can do so at any time as you are under no obligation to buy more boxes than you want too.

This Month’s Box Contained:

One pack of Appy Drinks (£1.99). Each pack contains 4 cartons of juice. Each carton contains 50% less sugar and calories than normal fruit juices. The juices are 100% natural with no added sugar or artificial preservatives. They are ideal for lunchboxes and for a quick drink whilst on the go. My Three really liked the Orange and Pineapple flavour. They thought Spongebob Squarepants on the packaging made them pretty cool too.

One bottle of Lorina Coconut and Lime Lemonade (£1.49). Lorina is a premium French Lemonade that has been handcrafted since 1895. Only 100% natural ingredients that are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives are used by Lorina. Their coconut and lime drink is both unique and refreshing. It sounds like it shouldn’t work but it really does. I really enjoyed the drink. It is best sered chilled and could even be used as a mixer with alcohol – someone please pass the Malibu or vodka. Lorina has other flavours available and can be bought in either 330ml or 750ml bottles.

One packet of Freeze Dried Fruit (£1.00) from The Snack Organisation. There are four different fruits available – apple, strawberry, apricot and pineapple. We were sent a packet of freeze dried apple. My Three really liked it and loved it sprinkled on their breakfast cereals. The fruit are one of your 5 a day and are gluten free. They are 100% natural.

One packet of Rice Crackers (£1.00) from The Snack Organisation. There are three varieties in the range – lightly salted, sweet chilli and teriyaki. The rice crackers are baked not fried, they are also gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. They are available from Tesco and Sainsbury’s.

One packet of  Original Carob Hit snack bars (£2.49) from 9Bar. Each bar is delicious and full of natural goodness. Every bar is full of sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and hemp seeds with a smooth carob topping. They are great for an on the go energising snack.

One bottle of Passata and one tin of chopped tomatoes (£2.25) from Cirio. Perfect to use in bolognaise. The ready to use sauce comes in a bottle for convenience if you don’t use it all at once it can be saved to use at a later date.                           

Two packets of nuts (£2.00) from Liberation Foods. Owned by small scale nut farmer co-ops in Africa, India and Latin America, Liberation’s mission as a Fair Trade nut company is to change the world for the farmers by bringing producers and consumers together so that everyone gets a fair deal. There are various varieties of nuts available –    Oven Baked Salted Cashews and Peanuts, Oven Baked Chilli and Lime Cashews with Peanuts and Baked mixed Peppercorn Peanuts with cashews and Habas Fritas. I wasn’t sure that I would like the nuts as they sounded very different to what I am used to eating, but I was pleasantly surprised and I loved them. Even the boys enjoyed them too.         

One box of Gluten Free breakfast cereal (£3.79) from Provena. The cereal is high in fibre and ideal for those who suffer from gluten intolerance and Coeliacs. The cereal is jam packed with oats and dried fruit that releases energy slowly.

One pot of Koduto Noodles (£1.99). Each pot is made with quality ingredients to make the perfect quick snack or lunch. Each pot is bursting full of flavour – coconut, chilli, chicken and coriander – it all sounds awful but when mixed together makes for a very tasty bite to eat. This dish is inspired by coconut laksa dishes from Malaysia.
      
Two packets of Chip Strips (£2.00). If you like Pringles chances are you’ll like Chip Strips. I have to be honest and say that I have never heard of these until they arrived in our box, but once we tasted them we loved them. Perfect for sharing (or not) this box of thin, long and crispy snacks are sure to go down a treat with everyone. 

Inside our box was a voucher, this voucher entitled us to purchase one block of President Butter (£2.00) from a local supermarket. President butter is made in Normandy, France from the finest creams. It has been a popular butter for over 40 years. It is great for baking and tastes lovely on hot toast. Perfect for breakfast or as supper with a cup of tea.

We can’t wait to see what next months brings us. But whatever is in there, I’m sure we’ll be in for a treat or two.
