Degustabox | April

I was sent the box for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It is that time of month again for my Degustabox review. This month, the theme of the box was ‘Best of British’. The box retails at £12.99 but you can get your first box for just £7.99 with shipping included. Just use this code WDGX9 on the website here (the code gets you a one time discount of £5).

Now the ‘Best of British’ theme was a theme I was very interested in and I couldn’t wait to see what brands and products were included in the box. So what was in the box and what did we think of them?

Cheerios Multigrain – £2.69

The children absolutely adore cereal and Cheerios are one of their favourites. These were definitely a welcome inclusion in the box. They are made with 5 whole grains, 7 vitamins, iron and calcium.

Typhoo Black Tea – £2.20

A much loved British brand since 1903, who doesn’t love a cup of tea? A box of tea is always going to be something I enjoy in a box, I love a decent cuppa.

Robinsons Fruit Cordials – £2.49

We love Robinsons in our house and always have a bottle here. Jack really enjoys the elderflower flavour so he was very excited to see this cordial in the box. This tastes absolutely delicious just like the other squashes and cordials in the brand. It isn’t hard to see why Robinsons have been making delicious fruit drinks since 1823!

Heinz Organic Baked Beanz – £1

Heinz is one of our favourite brands -we’ve always got some of their beans, ketchup or soup in the cupboard. Beans are something we use a lot so these were popular. They were eaten the night the box arrived and were delicious, as to be expected. Packed full of the finest organically grown ingredients, they’re definitely worth a try.

Eat Water Slim Rice Sushi -£2.55

As the only person in the house to eat sushi, I’ve stashed this away in the cupboard for a day when I fancy it. This easy to roll sushi rice is made with natural ingredients such as Japanese sushi rice and konjac rice. There are just 9 calories per piece.

Crafted by Cracker Drinks Co Mango and Passionfruit 330ml – £2

We’ve tried some juice drinks in this range before and this was delicious, just like the others. These juices have no added sugar or sweeteners and it is packed in an environmentally friendly carton. We will definitely be buying more of these – and all of the CRAFTED drinks count towards one of your five a day.

Heinz Cream of Tomato Pot Soup – £1.19

I instantly claimed this as Heinz tomato soup is my absolute favourite. Now that they come in recyclable microwaveable pots, I can see I will be eating even more of them. Delicious as always.

London Flavours (Teriyaki flavour) – £1

I was very excited to see these crisps as I love the flavour of teriyaki. Steve and I ate these very quickly and enjoyed these immensely. We will definitely be buying these again.

Skinny Food Co Not Guilty White Chocolate Crispies/Milk Chocolate Crispies – £1.49

These high protein crispies are guilt free and gluten free. They have no added sugar and are delicious for less than 100 calories. They are a great snack and we all enjoyed them.

Bull’s-Eye NY Steakhouse Barbecue Sauce – £2.49

Steve was very excited to see this included in the box – he loves a decent tasting barbecue sauce and was very impressed by this one. It has a true authentic American BBQ taste – absolutely delicious.

Love Corn Smoked BBQ – £1.29

Love Corn are the UK’s first premium crunchy corn brand and these corn kernels are packed with flavour. They’re vegan and also sugar free and gluten free, a great snack.

Candy Kittens Wild Strawberry – £1.50 

We’ve tried Candy Kittens sweets before and these are so delicious. We all really enjoyed them. They are completely free from gelatine and gluten and taste so good!

Pachamama Andean Berry & Raspberry/Cacao and Cashew – £1.39

These are a great mix of cacao, dates, nuts, grains and seeds. These are 100% vegan and have no added sugar. We all really enjoyed these.

Overall, I was very impressed with this box. The products in the box retail at over £25 and you’re paying very slightly over half that — very good value for money. I loved the inclusion of some much loved brands and being able to try some delicious new products. Very happy with the April offering.

  1. I would happily eat everything in this box! The pear and elderflower cordial sounds delicious. Candy Kittens are my favourite sweets. I’ve had to stop buying them because I always end up eating the whole packet in one go!

  2. So many items packed into one box. A great way to try a selection of items and pick your favs for your regular shop xx
