March Degustabox Review and discount code

It’s time for my March Degustabox review and discount code offer for my readers! Yes that’s right the fab team at Degustabox are offering an amazing £6 off your first box, all you need to do is sign up using the code BLDEG15 and you will receive your first box for just £6.99.

If you haven’t heard of Degustabox before, it is a monthly food and drink subscription box containing items from both well loved and new brands so you can discover delicious new flavours each month. We have been lucky enough to have been reviewing these boxes for over a year now, and i genuinely love them especially as the contents are a total surprise until you open the box, plus the delivery service is excellent. You can see my thoughts on previous boxes and some recipes I have made with products received in the boxes here.  Recently Degustabox introduced DB Discoveries a way to introduce us to smaller and less known brands to us. Onto this month's contents which focused on Easter and breakfast.

Lindt These beautiful gold wrapped bunnies are an Easter must have and this white chocolate version was a real treat. I must confess I saved it until the boys were in bed and Phil was on a night shift and ate it all myself. Smooth and creamy like chocolate should be.

Chewits Most of us grew up with Chewits(does anyone else remember ice cream flavour?), I always thought they were a product of the 80's but they are actually celebrating their 50th birthday. 

DB Discoveries Good Hemp I have tried a couple of milk alternatives in the past but never a hemp one so I was interested to see what I could do with this. I have used it for making porridge and also when making banana muffins and it worked well both times. 

Weetabix On the go breakfast drink These handy drinks contain all the fibre and energy of Weetabix cereal with milk plus they have an extra 20g of protein. Breakfast time is a bit hectic here at the moment, so i tried these drinks when i didn't have time to make myself anything and found that they tasted really nice and kept me going until lunch.

 Brioche Pasquier Pain Au Chocolat We love Brioche Pasquier products and have been lucky enough to try some in previous Degustaboxes. These Pain Au Chocolat are no exception, a gorgeous breakfast treat that the whole family enjoyed.

Metcalfes Skinny Popcorn Popcorn is always a popular treat for us and this sharing bag of cinema sweet flavoured popcorn was the perfect addition to our movie afternoon. I popped it into bowls along with fresh fruit and we all enjoyed it plus the popcorn is only 93 calories per serving. 

Kallo Quinoa and Seeds Multigrain Cakes Although I am familiar with the Kallo brand these multigrain cakes are new to me. They contain a mix of sunflower, sesame amd pumokin seeds. Unfortunately these weren't to my taste although the boys seem to enjoy them. 

Kallo Milk Chocolate Rice Cakes A Kallo product I am already a big fan of, i was so pleased to find them in my box. They make an ideal quick sweet snack to keep you going without reaching for the bisuit tin, perfect if like me you have a new baby and need to grab and eat quickly. 

Parle Monaco A light crispy biscuit sprinkled with salt these lovely little savoury treats are ridiculously morish, lovely on their own I also tried some with soft cheese and it made a delicious combo. I can't believe they are only 39p!

Parle Hide & Seek Another bargain biscuit from Parle, these are chocolate chip cookies. Absolutely perfect as an afternoon treat alongside a cup of tea.

Pipers Crisps Cheddar and Onion Flavour Sharing sized bags of crisps make perfect movie watching snacks or a great picnic addition. Pipers Crisps aim to make Britain's tastiest potato crisp and since 2007 they have won 23 Gold Great Taste Awards and have recently been voted best snack brand by the readers of Fine Food Digest for the fourth year in a row. With that in mind I knew we were in for a treat! These crisps are so good, crunchy and full of flavour, you might want to eat them all yourself!

Kents Kitchen Cranberry and Orange Stuffing We have tried a few Kents Kitchen products before and have always been really impressed with them but I had no idea that they made stuffing! Made with natural ingredients including chunky fruit, herbs and spices they are so easy to made by simply adding water, stirring and baking. I found the stuffing really yummy and fruity, perfect alongside a Sunday roast.

Karyatis Meze to Go Why not bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your everyday snacking? Rosemary crackers along with a sweet and smokey roasted red pepper and tangy feta dip in an easy to carry box. This is the only product I haven'tyet managed to try from this month's box, I will be trying them this week as an afternoon snack with the boys and will update with my thoughts.

I was so impressed with this month's box, I thought it was a nice mix of products both sweet and savoury plus who wouldn't enjoy a Lindt bunny? The value of the products compared to the price of the box was as always fantastic.  As I mentioned at the start of my post you can get £6 off your first box, simply sign up at Degustabox and use the code BLDEG15 for your discount.

You can also Degustabox on Facebook and follow them over on Twitter or Instagram to keep up to date with the latest information.
