The March degustabox was Easter themed which got me very excited and hoping for a box filled with chocolate goodies, unfortunately that wasn’t the case, although there was a fair number of treats in the box. Including a couple of products I’ve been wanting to try but not buying because they were too expensive in the supermarket and I didn’t want to buy something I might not like. The March box was also filled with well known brands with only a couple of new products in it which made my family all the more happy.
I wish I could say I was more excited about these Cadburys dairy milk bars but honestly they weren’t great, even the kids weren’t fussed on them. I feel they are more a gimmick off the back of the Oreo popularity, they weren’t awful but I will definitely be sticking to a good old fashioned bar of dairy milk.
These jelly beans from The jelly bean factory were the most popular item in our home, with us all fighting over the box hoping to find the best flavour. I was really shocked to find out they were vegetarian friendly as well as gluten free.
I am forever looking for post workout snacks and every month degustabox has failed me in my quest to find the perfect snacks. The Whitworths full of super bar was in fact super and delicious. At £1.50 they are rather expensive when you consider the price of some multi pack snacks. Although I find this worth the price tag, and have already filled my gym bag with them, and they are suitable for vegetarians as well as being gluten free.
£onepounders are an absolute favourite in my house, although the packaging is awful the actual sweets are delicious and at only £1 they are a bargain. Specially when compared to bigger brand names with not much taste difference. When I discovered these in the March box I quickly slipped them into my handbag so I wouldn’t have to share them.
Pipers crisps are actually my favourite brand of crisps, they easily surpass walkers when it comes to taste. I try not to eat too many bags of crisps but when I do they are always Pipers, I highly recommend this product, you won’t be sorry.
The Weetabix on the go were probably the biggest surprise in the box and one of those products I’ve been wanting to try but didn’t want to waste my money on. At £1.99 for the protein bottle it is rather expensive, specially when you compare them to a actual box of Weetabix which would feed my family. I found them really useful on mornings when I was running late and had to have breakfast on the go, incredibly perfect for those mornings. Unfortunately with such a high price tag per serving I would not buy them in the supermarket unless they were on offer.
Heinz seriously good sauce was a hit during a mid week dinner, super easy and quick to use, perfect for last minute dinners. I would absolutely use this sauce again and try other varieties, at £1.99 a jar it is a cheap way to spice up your meals.
My best friend was first to spot the Pure hopped cider and the Caple rd dry cider, and it’s safe to say he wasn’t sharing them, although he was a bigger fan of the Pure hopped cider and said he would actually look for it in the supermarket but wasn’t bothered by Caple rd dry cider but would drink it again if it was easily available. So that’s two thumbs up for the cider.
My least favourite product in the box was the Maldon smoked sea salt flakes, mainly because I found them uninteresting and not really a product I put much effort into buying.
