Degustabox August

It's that time of the month again, time to tell you about the August Degustabox. I have to say I genuinely look forward to these boxes coming, I love the element of surprise when I open them up. 

  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 the 4th box I have received, you can also read my thoughts on Julys box here   

As you can see, the box was packed full of goodies!
It's well packaged to protect the contents and again I cannot fault the delivery service at all. 

You can now choose between an alcoholic or non alcoholic box which is a great idea. I received both options in my box for the purpose of my review. 

Inside this months box was;
Mexican Dave's Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips.  This brand to me but I love tortilla chips so was more than than happy to try them out! I liked that they contain no MSG and they were lovely and crunchy. The at is huge and the RRP is just £1 so it's great value.

Cawston Press Kids Blend Apple and Pear. So I should probably have given this to See to try as it's made for kids but after trying Cawston Press drinks in previous boxes I hid it away for myself. I wasn't disappointed, it was really tasty and refreshing and I love that there is no added sugar. 

Caribbean Twist Strawberry Daiquiri. I am partial to a cocktail so I was very happy to see this included! Caribbean Twist is a brand I know well and i have always enjoyed their drinks and this was no exception. Fruity and sparkling, it was lovely to drink and I will buy this again. This is from the alcoholic box. 
Fever Tree Tonic Water and Ginger Beer. These are the alternative non alcoholic box option. I will be honest, I've not tried them yet but will definitely be having the tonic water with a large dash of vodka. 

Schwartz Flavour Shots in Mexican Fajita and Spanish Paprika Chicken. Schwartz is a brand I know and love and I have reviewed for them before on my blog. Flavour shots are handy recipe bases to keep in your cupboard to whip up a quick easy meal. Both of these are things we'll eat as a family, and I know they'll be as good as the usual Schwartz products. 

Dr Oetker Edible Wafer Cases. These cases are a brilliant idea, Dr Oetker really do have some amazing products to offer. I decided to get Seb baking some fairy cakes and we used these cases. I was worried the cases may leak or go brown in the oven but no they were still perfect. We used various Dr Oetker sprinkles(including the ones from last month) to decorate them. As you can see Seb thoroughly enjoyed using the sprinkles!
Berry White Organic Fruit Drink. These refreshing drinks are made from premium organic ingredients with no added sugar or artificial ingredients. I've not tried mine yet but am looking forward to it. 

Lindt Just for You Heart Chocolate Tin. This small heart shaped tin of chocolate hearts is so cute! Of course the chocolate is lovely, this would make a really sweet little gift for someone(or yourself!)
Brioche Pasquier pain au lait and pain au chocolat. We regularly eat brioche and pain au chocolat in this house so these were great products for us. Baked using authentic processes from the orgiinal Pasquier bakery back in 1936,  these are yummy. The pain au chocolat was my favourite, served with a nice cup of tea for breakfast. 
And finally this month Degustabox introduced Degustabox Fridge which is a 100% coupon to take to the shop and buy a chilled item. This month was Moma Bircher Muesli Multi pack. Unfortunately we haven't been able to try these as we don't have a Waitrose nearby and our local Sainsbury's didn't have them in stock but I have the voucher in my purse to use when we go near a bigger Saintsbury's store. I have tried Mona products before and have been happy with them. 

Yet again I have been so pleased with the Degustabox, I can't really find anything to fault them on. This is a box thay is well worth subscribing too for just £12.95 a month.
