June Degustabox Review and discount code

Our June Degustabox arrived last week!
I had been looking forward to its arrival and yet again I wasn't dissapointed! 
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. This is my 3rd box, you can also read my thoughts on the April and May boxes. 

Yet again the box was packed with goodies from familiar and less well known brands.

Lambrini Strawberry. Seeing this in the box got me pretty excited, Lambrini used to be my drink of choice as a fresher in uni and seeing the bottle brought back fond memories. Strawberry is the newest Lambrini flavour and i haven to say that it is really tasty and refreshing. I'll definitely be buying some to keep in the fridge and may even try the Peach or Apple and Blackcurrant flavour too.

Bear Alphabites.
I don't tend to buy much cereal as it tends to be full of sugar but Bear Alphabites has no added nonsense so is the kind of thing I would actually buy.  The boys are loving this cereal, and had 2 bowls each for breakfast. Seb of course loved that they were letter shapes. I had a taste too and it's nice and crunchy and also sweeter than I expected it to be even though it has no refined sugars added. 

Dr Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Grinder. This is a great idea, putting vanilla pods in a grinder is so convenient  I've not used this yet but I do have an idea in mind to try as well as adding it to my usual baking.
Veetee Basmati and Wild. A convenient pack of rice which can be microwaved or stir fried as a snack or as a side.  As we don't have a microwave I stir fried the rice instead which only took 3 or 4 minutes and I served it with some chicken in a barbecue sauce. It was really handy for me as I have a tendency to cook enough rice to feed our whole town.

Urban Fruit, Pineapple. This is a brand I'd not heard of before. These bags of baked fruit and ideal for snacking on while out and about. I've popped them in the changing bag to have on hand for a healthy snack. 

Elizabeth Shaw Milk Chocolate Amaretto Flutes
. I was happy to see these in the box after receiving a different flavour last month, they are lovely and because the chocolate is good quality, you only need a couple of the flutes to get your chocolate fix. Elizabeth Shaw is one of Britain's longest established chocolate brands so they must be doing something right, the Flutes range is new and comes in a variety of flavours.

Estrella Damm. This is an authentic imported pale Spanish lager. I am not a larger fan so I gave this to Phil to try while watching some football.  He said it was really nice and light and he would definitely drink it again.

Be Fast Breakfast. These shakes are for those days when you need to have breakfast on the go. They are high in fibre but low in fat and are designed to keep you going until lunch. I have these waiting in my fridge for the days I am in a hurry. 

Shaken Udder Milkshake. As an extra treat we received one of these in our box this month. I received the chocolate flavour, it's  a lovely creamy milkshake  and I have already bought more!
I am still loving the Degustabox.  I love how efficient the delivery service is and the variety of products in each box, there really is something for all the family to try and we haven't had a single product that we won't use so far. I love the anticipation of the box coming as it's contents are a total surprise. They also offer great value as the box costs £12.99 delivered but the value of the contents far exceeds this. 

The lovely folks over at Degustabox are offering you all £3 off when you register with them. Simply go to their website and use the code
