Subscription boxes are hot right now and i love them. This month i have been sent a Degustabox to try. If you haven't heard of Degustabox before, it is a monthly subscription box containing foodie items so you can discover new flavours every month. After seeing them on various blogs recently i was really excited to try the box out and try some new products.
First up I would like to praise the delivery service, I was emailed and texted telling when to expect delivery with an hour slot plus I had the option of changing that. I hate missing parcels so this was a big plus as far as I'm concerned.
The box is a good size and it is packaged really nicely with lots of bubblewrap to protect the contents inside. I liked the cute printed packaging(I'm a sucker for nice wrapping) and that the products were wrapped in tissue paper with a sticker tempting me to open and see what was inside.
Inside the box was a whole host of goodies plus an information sheet with short descriptions of the content. So what came in the box? i hear you ask!
Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer in raspberry flavour. Made with real raspberries for a unique refreshing taste. I've never tried ginger beer before and i haven't tried this drink yet but i will be tonight, so I'll report back!
Lindt Lindor Chocolate. This was the first thing i tried from the box, made by master chocolatiers this chocolate is deliciously smooth and creamy, I'm so pleased it's available in treat bar size and will definitely be buying again.
Cawston Press Rhubarb. A better soft drink made without preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners. I'm drinking this while writing this post and it tastes just like Rhubarb and Custard sweets, in other words, its delicious! I hope i can find it locally to buy as it will be lovely on a summers day and i would love to try the Apple flavour too.
Clearspring Miso On The Go. These instant soups are made from the finest organic ingredients without artificial additives, colourings or preservatives. There are lots of benefits of eating Miso including strengthening the immune system and aiding digestion.
Go Splash Blackcurrant. A low calorie way to add a little excitement and flavour into your water. These little bottles contain enough flavouring for 6 litres of water. I really like this product, a quick squeeze of the bottle gave me enough flavour for a glass of water, i like the mild flavour it added to my drink and it being sugar free is always a good thing. I also like it's small portable size.
Keogh's Atlantic Salt and Irish Cider Vinegar crisps. Made from Irelands finest potatoes grown on Keogh's family farm these crisps contain 100% natural ingredients and are both Gluten and MSG free. I let Phil have these as he loves Salt and Vinegar flavour crisps, he said they were lovely and the pack soon disappeared!
McVities Mini Rolls. Everyone loves Mini Rolls and now they come in Tropical and Berry Burst flavours. They have the great quality and taste we always expect from McVities and I have 2 small boys who have been munching their way through these. It is suggested to freeze these and eat them as a summer snack and i will definitely be trying that out.
Dr Oetkers Fine Cooks Chocolate in milk and dark. Dr Oetker have created this cooking chocolate to give your great results when baking. The milk chocolate contains 35% cocoa solids and the dark a whopping 72% cocoa solids. These are ideal for covering cakes, using in desserts or even making chocolate decorations. We will be using these in our baking next week.
Mornflake Superfast Pots. These pots come in 2 flavours; Raisin Honey and Almond Granola and Fruit and Nut Muesli. Great for breakfast on the go, you simply need to add a little water into the pot and stir and it magically turns into milk! Even the spoon is included! These are a lovely tasting, crunchy breakfast and are perfect for mornings where you are in a rush.
I have really enjoyed my Degustabox experience and writing this review. I like that there is a real mix of products in the box and it's always great to try new products and those that i may not otherwise think to buy on our weekly shop
