The Easter March 2017 Degustabox arrived recently and I have to say, it was our favourite one so far. If you haven’t heard of Degustabox before, it is a food and drink subscription box with a mix of different items in it each month.
With it being the Easter box, there was of course chocolate! Along with lots of other bits, so here is what was in the March 2017 Degustabox box.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo – £1.49 each
There were two bars included from the Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo range, the Peanut Butter one and the Mint one. I was the only one to like the Peanut Butter one, which was handy as it meant that I didn’t need to share. I am actually the only one in the house that likes peanut butter anyway.
The Mint one everyone loved and it disappeared very quickly. Both bars had crunchy bits of Oreo inside and are definitely things we’ll be buying again in the future!
The Jelly Bean Factory – £1.49
Jelly beans are one of Fin’s favourite type of sweets, so he was very happy to see them in the box. It was a 75g Fairtrade box of 36 gourmet flavours from The Jelly Bean Factory. I was surprised to see that they are made with natural flavours and I expect a lot of people will like that they are gluten free, nut free and Vegetarian Society UK certified. Most importantly though, they taste really good!
£onepounders Chocolate Eclairs – £1.00
This month’s both really couldn’t have been better for the boys, as Harley also got his favourite some chocolate eclairs. He loved them.
Whitworths Super Cacao Raw Bar – £1.50
The bar was full of all sorts of things that sound like they’re good for me like coconut flakes, chai seeds, golden flax seeds, quinoa and acai. It contains a source of Thiamine. It’s gluten free and suitable for vegetarians.
I quite liked the bar and the contents all sounded reassuringly healthy, but I didn’t love it.
Pipers Crisps – £2.00
These cider vinegar and sea salt crisps from Pipers were soooo good. Si and I polished them off in no time, despite it being a very generously sized share bag. I normally quite like salt and vinegar crisps, but I certainly wouldn’t choose them over other flavours. These I could happily eat all the time, they really are that good. Tangy and full of flavour.
*We were sent all of the items from both versions of the Easter box, the one with alcohol and the one without. Normally people would have had the cider or the chocolate coconut milk and lemon energy drink.*
Pure Hopped Cider – £1.99 and Cable RD Dry Cider Blend No.5 – £1.99
I don’t usually drink cider. In fact I rarely drink at all and if I do it tends to be Vodka and Si drinks beer. However, we tried these and both enjoyed them, so maybe I need to give cider a chance on the rare occasions that I do drink in future. I’m now wondering whether cider would count as one of your five a day?
Weetabix on the go – £1.39 / Protein £1.99
I really liked both of these. Reading the weetabix part, I was kind of expecting a lumpy mixture and in truth wasn’t looking forward to trying them. However they are more of a yoghurt type drink, filling and really nice. I especially liked the vanilla one.
Naturelly – £1.19
I love that this has 100% of a child’s recommended daily intake of Vitamin C in, always reassuring to know that they’re having something that is good for their Vitamin intake. The boys liked it, I didn’t get to try it.
Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Mylk – £1.89
This is a chocolate ‘mylk’ drink made with coconut milk. Fin was the one who got to drink this and he really enjoyed it.
Gusto Organic Lemon Energy – £1.50
This is one of those ones that you’ll either love or hate depending on how much you like the taste of lemons. It literally tastes like fizzy lemon juice. Refreshing at first, but for me it was just a bit too tangy and sharp.
Heinz (Seriously) Good Sauces – £1.99
We were sent the creamy tomato and garlic sauce, which instead of using on chicken I actually used as a pasta sauce for a cheesy pasta bake. It tasted amazing and I’ll be buying the sauce again.
Maldon Smoked Sea Salt Flakes – £1.50
I’ve been using these when cooking instead of my usual sea salt and to be honest I haven’t noticed a difference in a taste really. I like the taste though, as I always prefer sea salt to normal salt anyway.
