For those of you who are new to Degustabox, it is a surprise food box. You are sent a box each month with lots of new brands and treats to try out. I have always loved the wonderful selection of products that are included in the box and the May box called as the ‘Picnic Box’ was no exception. In fact Mays box was our absolute favourite so far, we spent a lazy Sunday afternoon having a picnic in our garden and trying out all the products.
Millions Chocolate Covered Strawberry (2 x £0.50) and Millions Sour Strawberry (£0.60)
These are two of the latest additions to the tasty sweets range from Millions – an amazing milk chocolate covered Strawberry Millions and Sour Strawberry Millions. These took me right back to the days when I would spend my school dinner money on sweets, there will be forever a place in my heart for millions.
Zeo Soft Drinks, £1.19
I love Zeo. They are a regular at our home and I was pleased to see the Zeo can in this month’s box. Delicious, low calorie, and big on flavour – that’s what Zeo drinks are and this was one was also like that. We received the Orange and mango flavour, totally refreshing and perfect for these hot summer days.
Candy Kittens Sweets (£3.00)
When I saw this beautifully packaged sour candy packet, I was excited as I like sour candies and treats. And they came in my favourite flavour, Eton mess. However they are not vegetarian friendly and at £3 a pack, they are extremely expensive for what they are. The price tag alone would stop me buying them again.
Cereal Lovers CrunchTime Nuggets (£1.59)
Made with all natural ingredients, this snacking granola is a new concept in healthy snacking. There are 3 variants in the CrunchTime range; Forest, Sunshine and Chocolate. We received the Forest variant which was yummy, I half expected the kids to turn their noses up at them, but they loved them too.
Deli Kitchen Skinni Wrap (£1.25)
Low in calorie content, this wrap comes in an unique and easy to fold shape. This was the fresh product of the month. I’m not sure I would go out of my way to find these in a supermarket, they aren’t any better than any other wrap available on the market.
Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer, £1.89
Free from artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners, this ginger beer tasted lovely served over ice. Perfect for a warm summer evening.
This product is from the alcohol version of the box.
Cadbury Dairy Milk – Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp, £3.49
A massive bar of Dairy Milk from their Big Taste range. The combines delicious Dairy Milk with a peanut filling, containing generous peanut pieces and crunchy crispies, all topped off with goo-ey caramel and peanut halves. Yummy! Safe to say this was the first product that disappeared within minutes, you really can’t go wrong with a bar of Cadburys.
Hippeas – In Herbs We Trust (£1.50)
Organic chickpea puffs that are light, crunchy and airy and packed with flavour. I loved these. It comes in 4 other flavours, I think. Will be picking up these on my next shopping trip. Great alternative to a pack of crisps and much healthier, unfortunately the kids didn’t agree.
MOMA Foods – Gluten Free Raspberry & Coconut Bircher Muesli (£3.20)
I’m a massive fan of muesli, and this was absolutely delicious! I absolutely loved the combination of coconut and raspberry, I would swap my usual brand for this brand and can not wait to try some of there other flavours. Add yoghurt or a splash of fruit juice and you have overnight oats ready in 5 mins.
Homepride Strong White Bread Flour (£1.50)
Haven’t used this yet but it will be very handy and used up soon.
Raw Bean – Bean Bags Striking El Salvador
The first pyramid coffee bag on the market! A very nice idea, not going to lie I’m a little obsessed with the idea of coffee in a bag and would buy these again. This product was a part of the non-alcohol version of this month’s Degustabox.
So that was the May Degustabox. I liked the selection of products included in the box – some yummy treats, some known brands and some totally new products.
