Degustabox | March

We were sent this box for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

It’s that time of the month again where I talk about all of the goodies sent to us in this month’s Degustabox. This month’s theme was Spring & Easter so I was interested to see what was in the box. You can get your first box for just £7.99 (usual price is £12.99) with shipping included. Just use this code WDGX9 on the website here (the code gets you a one time discount of £5).

With the theme, I assumed there would be some chocolate included and I was right. Here’s what we received in this month’s box.

Costa Signature Blend Coffee Ground For Cafetiere & Filter – £3.70

We don’t actually drink coffee in our house so this is going to a good home; my in laws. Nevertheless I have heard good things about Costa’s coffee.

Forest Feast Preda Fair Trade Mango 30g & Milk Chocolate Mango and Coconut Fruit Balls 30g – £1.29 each

These were a perfectly delicious treat. The perfect bit of indulgence without any of the guilt. These didn’t last long in my house at all.

Weetabix On The Go Strawberry – £1.49

We’ve tried these before although I am not sure if they were from a previous box. We really enjoy these so this was very welcomed.

Moose Juice Passionfruit – £1.59

We try not to have energy drinks too often in our house but sometimes do, Steve more than me. Steve liked this and said it was the best energy drink we have had in any of the previous boxes so high praise indeed.

Red Red Super Stews Black Eyed Beans & Tomato – £2.99

These are made with natural plant based ingredients and inspired by Africa. Unfortunately I could see that neither Steve or I would probably eat this so we are donating it to our local food bank rather than it languishing in our cupboard until it passes its expiry date.

Ballymaloe Original Relish 

Rich in tomatoes and made using all natural ingredients, this relish was definitely a positive addition to the box. We use a lot of relishes and chutneys, Steve especially, so he was happy to see this. It’s gluten free, suitable for vegans and tastes great.

Jubel Alpine Beer cut with Peach – £1.80

We haven’t actually tried this yet but were super intrigued to see it in the box. It is a lively lager with the zest of freshly ripe peaches, gluten free, naturally infused and vegan too. Can’t wait to see what its like!

Green & Black’s Praline bar and Truffle bar – 89p each

I never used to be a fan of Green & Black’s, I mostly associated them with dark chocolate which I wasn’t a fan of. As I’ve got older and my tastes have matured, I find myself enjoying dark chocolate more and now I also realise that Green & Black’s do milk chocolate too. These are made with ethically sourced chocolate and contain no artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. These were absolutely delicious.

KIND Snacks Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt – £1.35

These are a tasty and nutritious snack bar which we were very happy to see in the box. These are gluten free and naturally high in protein and a great option to slip into your handbag or pocket for an afternoon snack.

Chum Fruit Bites Apple & Strawberry – 79p each

These are made with 100% fruit, high in fibre and vegan. These also did not last long with my two kids – they devoured these quickly and really enjoyed them. They are delicious and we will certainly be buying again.

Willie’s Cacao single state chocolate Passionfruit – £1.99

This slab of chocolate only just made it out of the box before me and Steve shared it between us. These are made using only natural ingredients and this was super tasty, a nice treat that we could indulge in that we didn’t have to share with the kids for once.

Overall I was fairly impressed with this box. There was a fair amount of sweet stuff compared to savoury but I’m not complaining. With the box retailing at £12.99, the boxes contents added up to just over £20 if you were to buy them all separately – a great saving, I think!

Which item of the box would be your favourite?

  1. This looks like a pretty cool box, I struggle with things like this due to having Coeliacs disease but think it might be a cool thing to get for the OH 🙂

  2. The Chum fruit bites would be fantastic. I could imagine my girls enjoying these as a snack. I ordered one of these boxes last year and we had some great goodies inside.

  3. The chum fruit snacks would be perfect for Mia as we struggle to find snacks she can have due to her milk allergy. For me I’ve always wanted to give the weetabix shake drinks ago so reading how you love them as made me want to get some on our next shop

  4. I’ve heard so many good things about Wheetabix on the go! Looks like you got lots for your money, especially with the Costa Coffee (even though you gave it away), Costa tends to be a bit pricey! x
