June Degustabox Review and discount code

It’s time for my June Degustabox review and discount code offer for my readers. This month the discount has been increased to £7,  that’s right the fab team at Degustabox are offering an amazing £7 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 £5.99, this is a total bargain!

If you haven’t heard of Degustabox before, it is a monthly food and drink subscription box containing items from both well loved and exciting new brands so you can discover delicious new flavours each month. We have been lucky enough to have been reviewing these boxes for two years now, and i genuinely love them in particular as each month the contents are a total surprise until you open the box, plus i find the delivery service that Degustabox use is excellent so no worries about my box going missing or getting damaged in transit. You can see my thoughts on previous boxes and some recipes I have made with products received in the boxes here.

This month's box had a nod towards the summer season with lots of products suitable for holding a BBQ.


Butterkist Yogurt Covered Popcorn RRP  £1.49 We are big popcorn fans, I usually have a bag in the cupboard ready for rainy afternoons watching a film and I love all the new exciting things that popcorn makers are coming up with at the moment. Butterkist Yogurt Covered Popcorn comes in a large sharing bag or as a multipack and contains  just 95 calories per serving. This went down so well with my boys,  they could get enough!


Haywards Medium and Tangy Silverskins £1.89 With a classic flavoursome taste these silverskins qill add a tang to any dish. Great on a cheeseboard or in a BBQ salad. This isn't something we would use so we have passed them on to my mother in law.



Heinz Amoy Coconut Milk £1.99 Made from ripe fresh coconuts in Thailand, perfect for curries and desserts. I regularly use coconut milk am looking forward to using this one in a curry this week.


Branston Spicy Tomato Relish £1.65 With BBQ season upon us, everyone is embracing burgers and hot dogs and this relish makes a great alternative to the traditional ketchup. Phil has tried this one burgers and really enjoyed the different taste to his usual sauce.


Schwartz Homemade Burger Mix £1.49 Regular readers will know that I actually reviewed thsee Burger Mixes recently and really enjoyed them. They are such an easy way to make burgers for everyone to enjoy, perfect for the BBQ season.


Zeo Cloudy Lemonade £2.75 Having tried some Zeo drinks in the past I was really pleased to see the Cloudy Lemonade in this months box. Each serving contains only 28 calories and 1.5 teaspoons of sugar, far less than alternatives. It is a lovely refreshing drink, perfect for summer entertaining.


Sacla Pesto Pots RRP £2.79 Pesto is a staple in our house and these mini pots are absolutely perfect for making quick meals for one without waste. We actually used two of the pots the day the Degustabox arrived using the recipe supplied by Degustabox and the pesto is really lovely and each pit us the perfect size for one person.



BakedIn Mug Brownie £1.50 Mug cakes have been popular for a while now and this brownie in a mug is an ultimate comfort food treat and is ready to eat in a couple of minutes.  This brand is totally new to me and i have ordered one of their baking subscription boxes to try.


Marstons Lager £1.70 A big bold lager laced with flavour. Unfortunately neither of us drink lager so this has been passed on,



Smooze Mango and Coconut Fruit Ice RRP £2.50 A freeze at home fruit ice made from natural ingredients including coconut milk, fresh fruit juice and puree. Mango and Coconut and a winning combo and with the weather being pretty warm these make a really refreshing treat for kids and adults alike.


Destrooper-Olivier Belgian Butters £1.10 I love Belgian biscuits, I have family who live in Begum and one of my big memories when visiting them was drinking hot chocolate in Bruges accompanied by delicious buttery biscuits and these Belgian Butters took me right back there, perfect with tea or hot chocolate these are available in Waitrose.


Shirataki Miracle Noodle If you are dieting and looking to lower your carb intake, these noodles are for you. Each serving contains just 5 calories which is pretty amazing and they are gluten free. A great alternative to pasta.

This months box was fab as usual, although a couple of tbe products didn't appeal to us, I am always happy to share the Degustabox love and pass those bits on. As the total product value was well over £20 it really is a great value subscription box.
As I mentioned at the beginning of my post you can receive a whopping £7 off your first box, simply sign up at Degustabox and use the code BLDEG15 for your discount.
