Packed full of new and exciting food and drinks products, Degustabox has easily become one of the UK’s most popular subscription boxes within this field. Each month’s box is a surprise which not only adds an element of fun to the box, but also allows you to try out new products as soon as they’re on the market.
This month’s Degustabox arrived a couple of days ago and is appropriately themed Summer & BBQ to match this beautiful weather that we’re having – keep on reading to discover what’s inside!
Something a little different here – a mystery product! Degustabox wants you to try out a brand new snack that hasn’t hit the shops yet and give them some feedback on it. The bag contains a healthier alternative to regular tortilla chips and features ingredients such as Lentils, Green Peas and Beans, all seasoned with Sea Salt. How exciting! I hope Degustabox do more of these mystery products in the future!
Savoursmiths Truffle & Rosemary Crisps
As a bonus treat this month, there’s a bag of Savoursmiths Crisps in a delicious Truffle & Rosemary flavour. Suitable for vegans and free from gluten and MSG, these hand-cooked crisps are made with British potatoes and they’re really tasty. Perfect with a sandwich or just when you fancy an indulgent savoury snack!
Smith & Sinclair Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies in Gin & Tonic and Mandarin Spritz (£15 for a box of 8)
Now, these are very new and interesting as I haven’t come across anything like them before. Made by the award-winning Smith & Sinclair, these Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies contain 8% alcohol which means that if you have five of them, you won’t be able to drive – so they really pack a punch! Both of these flavours were amazing and I’d definitely pick them up again as a gift or treat.
Lucozade Energy Watermelon & Strawberry Cooler (RRP £1.20)
New from Lucozade is this ultra-refreshing soft drink in a juicy Watermelon Watermelon & Strawberry flavour. Great for drinking during or after your workout to refuel your body.
Rowntree’s Randoms (RRP £1.29)
A twist on the usual Rowntree’s favourites, these Randoms are a fun mix of soft gummy and foam sweets in a variety of fruity flavours. The sharing bag is also a good size for long road trips in the car or for a movie night at home.
Kolibri Botanical Drinks (£3.75 each)
For a brand new, luxury, lightly sparkling, alcohol-free drink to enjoy, these award-winning Botanical Drinks from Kolibri feature a truly unique and customisable lid that allows you to perfectly sweeten your drink. It features all natural ingredients, is low in sugar and calories and contains no artificial sweeteners. You’ll receive one of these delicious flavours in your box this month – Degustabox kindly sent me both the Strawberry & Basil and the Cardamom & Chilli to show you the available options.
Trek Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Protein Nut Bars (RRP £2.50)
I’m a big fan of Trek’s flapjacks, so I was really happy to see this pack of their Protein Nut Bars. Each bar contains 10g of plant-based protein, is high in fibre and has less than 5g of sugar, making them a much healthier alternative. I loved this Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt flavour which tasted like such a treat!
The Free From Kitchen Co Choc Bar (RRP £1.50) & Salted Caramel Choc Slab (RRP £2.50)
Next up, there are two chocolate bars from The Free From Kitchen Co who specialise in products that are free from gluten, wheat and milk. I really enjoyed trying out both of these bars, especially the Salted Caramel which tastes amazing! They will definitely appeal to anyone who loves chocolate – not just those with allergies or certain dietary requirements.
Garbanzo Snacks (RRP £2.29 each)
Garbanzo Snacks is a brand new gourmet range of vegan-friendly healthy snacks which are made in their own artisanal kitchens using only the best natural ingredients. They’re gluten-free and contain no artificial preservatives or additives, plus they’re high in fibre and come in a range of different flavours to tempt your tastebuds. You’ll receive one pack to try in your Degustabox this month with the flavour options being Tomato Salsa, Thai Sweet Chilli and Bombay Twist – and they’re all super moreish and crunchy!
Newman’s Own Italian Dressing (RRP £1.75)
Liven up your Summer salads with this best-selling Italian Dressing from Newman’s Own. Made from a blend of the finest Red Wine Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you can also drizzle it over rice and pasta dishes to add more flavour.
DRGN Turmeric Superdrink (RRP £1.85)
Turmeric has been a popular superfood for quite some time now, and it’s great to see it being included in more products. This new Superdrink from DRGN is an Asian-fusion natural energy and wellness drink that gives you a boost but without the caffeine. Packed full of essential vitamins and minerals, it can be enjoyed at any time of the day and has a pleasantly refreshing flavour.
Mavericks Healthier Snacks (RRP £0.75)
Mavericks are on a mission to deliver healthier snack choices to your kids and you’ll find both of these packs to try in your Degustabox this month. Each pack is under 100 calories and they both contain no added sugar which is great to see! On the left is the Moon Cheese Poppin’ Corn, a tasty savoury snack, and on the right are some Super Strawb Smart Cookies for a healthy sweet treat.

Add some spice to your Summer BBQ with Hellman’s Chilli Mayonnaise which is infused with Tabasco sauce! This dream team combo of flavours is the ideal accompaniment to sandwiches, burgers and hotdogs – yum!
