Review: The Degustabox for May 2017


The May 2017 Degustabox – Each month Degustabox create a subscription box full to the brim with food and drinks for people to try. This month’s box had a picnic theme! *Scroll to the bottom for a discount code*


Sometimes they can be very random, but in our previous Degustabox reviews we have found quite a few new favourites that we now buy ourselves. Here’s what was in the May 2017 Degustabox when we opened it:


Degustabox May chocolate


Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp – RRP £3.49


This was a giant 278g bar of chocolate and was some of the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted. Dangerously moreish, the boys loved it too. Which is just as well, as I think I would have ended up eating the giant bar on my own otherwise.


Degustabox May Millions


Millions – RRP Chocolate 50p / Sour 60p


Chocolate coated Millions – I wasn’t sure that I would like these as it seemed an odd combination, but they were delicious. The sour ones were definitely sour enough to make us make odd faces as the first hint of the flavour hit, definitely good though.


Degustabox May


Portlebay Popcorn – RRP 79p


We were sent the sweet Spiracha Thai kracklecorn, which I really wasn’t a fan of. Taste wise or consistency wise … I don’t really get the whole kracklecorn thing, I definitely prefer straightforward popcorn.


Cereal Lovers CrunchTime Nuggets – RRP £1.59


Sadly another one I wasn’t keen on. It tasted okay, but for me it was a bit too crunchy and dry, basically dry cereal which I guess is the idea?! Snacking granola isn’t for me I don’t think, I like my granola with plenty of milk or yoghurt.


Hippeas In Herbs We Trust – RRP £1.50


I loved these, they reminded me of carrot type crisps I’ve had before from the toddler food section consistency wise. Taste wise they were lovely, I could happily eat more of these.


MOMA Gluten free Raspberry and Coconut Bircher Muesli – RRP £3.20


This was very tasty and filling, so a great way to start the day off for me. The boys weren’t keen, but they aren’t really muesli fans.


Degustabox Candy Kittens


Candy Kittens – RRP £3.00


There are different flavours of these to try, I’m so pleased we were sent the Eton Mess ones though as they tasted wonderful. Everyone in the house loved them, they didn’t last long at all because of that sadly. If I buy some in the future, I am so hiding them.


May Degustabox


Homepride Strong White Bread Flour – RRP £1.50


I’ve used this flour before to make bread rolls and it works well. It’s a handy one to have in the cupboard, especially as my eldest does quite a lot of cooking at school at the moment.


Deli Kitchen Skinni Wrap – RRP £1.25


These seemed to me to be mostly ‘skinni’ as they were smaller than our usual wraps. However they tasted good and the shape of them made them really easy to make into perfect shaped wraps to eat on the go.


Bean Bags Proper Coffee on the Go RRP £4.50 – This is what you receive in the non alcoholic box only.


This is so handy, basically lots of tea bags – except they’re actually coffee bags and an easy quick way to have filtered coffee. I really enjoyed this.


Degustabox Drinks


Zeo Soft Drinks – RRP £1.19


I’m a fan of the Zeo drinks and this one didn’t disappoint. Really nice and tangy in a very refreshing way.


Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer – RRP £1.89


This hasn’t been opened yet as neither of us really drink ginger beer, however we have a friend who it will be going to and he says it tastes good having had it before.


So that’s it the May 2017 Degustabox contents! If you fancy getting your own Degustabox, you can sign up over on the Degustabox website and if you use the code 2EKEZ you will get £7.00 off your first box making it a bargain at £5.99!
