Degustabox For March

My food delivery of Degustabox is here again. The monthly food delivery box is perfect when you love trying new things as you get between 9-14 items every month, most new to the market and many utterly delicious.

So lets see what we have in the box this month.





A great selection this month!

Jordans Granola RRP: £3.69

I am a big fan of granola and this granola by Jordan's is a lighter granola, with 30% less fat than their normal version and high in fibre too. To be honest I wasn't looking forward to trying a healthier granola, but from the taste I couldn't tell it was lower in fat, so I would highly recommend it.

Kents Kitchen Posh Noodles RRP: £1.75

These noodles by Kents Kitchen are perfect for a tasty snack, or lunch on the go, being low in fat and calories. Made with all natural ingredients, just add hot water, stir and wait a few minutes for a hot and filling meal in no time.




Maynards Sour Patch Kids RRP: £1.00

All the family enjoyed these sweets and although they had a sour flavour they weren't eye watering, and were sweet under the coating. With six different flavours in the packet, they are a little treat when only something sweet (and sour) will do.

Lindt Lindor Assorted Mini Eggs RRP: £2.00 (each)

These mini eggs are a really delicious assortment of milk, white and dark chocolate. I adored the white chocolate the most, as it was really yummy and the centres were soft . They were inspired by a secret recipe, I wish I had access to the secret recipes Lindt! 

Bassetts Jelly Babies Berry Mix RRP: £1.48

Who doesn't like jelly babies? As well as being a favourite of Dr Who they are a favourite of my husband too, so I didn't get a chance to try these! These packets are a yummy mix of blackcurrant, raspberry and strawberry and contain real fruit juice and natural colours. They also say they are made for sharing....did you hear that Marcus?

Natvia RRP: £2.00

This 100 per cent naturally sourced alternative to artificial sweetener and sugar has zero calories per serving, is non genetically modified and has a low GI. I used it in my tea ( 1 teaspoon equals 1 teaspoon of sugar) and I thought it was an excellent substitute to sugar.

Brioche Pasquier Baked Bread Bites RRP: £0.50 (each)

Marketed as a new alternative to potato crisps, each packet, made from real French bread has under 90 calories and is low in saturated fat compared to crisps, free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.  We really enjoyed the bacon flavour snack in this household and the price is great too. It will be interesting to try other flavours so I will look out for these when I am in the shops next.



BBQUE RRP: £3.99

BBQUE is the original Bavarian barbecue sauce, made with cranberries, beer, honey and apples.  This sauce is not yet available in the UK so be one of the first to try it here. I am looking forward to using this with a recipe for Hunters Chicken, as it sounds authentic and a step up from the usual barbecue sauce. 

JuiceBurst RRP: £1.25 (each)

I already like the cranberry Juice Burst, so was delighted to have this in my box. Sharp, but not not too sharp the cranberry drink is refreshing and flavourful. I have yet to try the skinny Juice Burst but if it tastes like it sounds - "bursting to the brim with fruit goodness",  it will be as delicious as the normal JuiceBurst.

Crabbie's Alcoholic Fruits RRP: £1.50 (each)

Voted Product Of The Year, this alcoholic drink is packed with fruity flavours. Made with no artificial colours or flavourings I can't wait to try these drinks, and even the flavours sound enticing Black Cherry, Zesty Lemon, and Raspberry and Rhubarb. I think the price is good too.

    1. I think if you are open minded and like surprises then it is value for money, but I can see it is not for everyone.
