Degustabox | May

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

It’s time again to share the goodies we got in our Degustabox. This month, the theme was brunch & afternoon tea. 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).

So what did brunch and afternoon tea themed goodies did we receive?

Koko Dairy Free Super Milk – £1.99

This milk is enriched with 9 key vitamins and minerals, making it perfect for all ages. We are not dairy free in our house so cannot comment on this as we will be passing it on to those in need of dairy alternatives.

Hellmann’s Vegan Mayo – £2.15

Not only is this vegan but it is also gluten free and contains no artificial colours or flavourings. It’s creamy, delicious, full of Omega-3 and a great alternative to the usual Hellmann’s mayo.

Splenda Sweet Minis – £1.50

I no longer take sugar or sweetener in my cuppa although Steve does and we do use sweeteners in our baking so we always have some in the cupboard. These will definitely come in handy for the future.

Oteas Black Tea & Apricot 

This is the product of the month. Black tea infused with sweet and nutty apricots creates a fruity beverage. Steve isn’t a fan of flavoured teas but I quite like them and this is nice hot or cold.

Real Good Smokey BBQ Ketchup – £2.49

I don’t know about your household but we use a lot of condiments so this was a very handy addition and tasetes great.  It is full of flavour, low in salt and has 80% less sugar than normal sauces – what’s not to like?

Daelmans Duo Stroopwafels – £1.29

Who doesn’t love a Stroopwafel? These tasty waffles with subtle caramel filling were always going to go down a treat in my house – so good!

Kuhne Gin Cornichons – £2.59

A rather unique product, these are crunchy gherkins infused with gin and whilst I am not always a gin fan, these are rather interesting to say the least!

Firely Drinks Lemon, Lime and Ginger – £1.55

Steve loves drinks like this so was interested to see this included. It is refreshing and zinging full of flavour.

La Giolosa Prosecco Brut Doc Treviso – £3.49

I love a bottle of Prosecco and always have one in the house so this was very much a welcome addition. Very tasty.

Fruity Beauties Fairtrade and Organic Snack Bars – £1.50

Fruity Beauties are on a mission to provide a fun and nutritious burst of life. These are high in fibre and one of your five a day. The kids had these as snacks and really enjoyed them.

SHORE Seaweed Puffs – £1.19

I wasn’t too sure how I’d find these but I was pleasantly surprised. There was a distinct burst of flavour however it wasn’t too intense that it overwhelmed the puffs. They wouldn’t be my first choice of snack but I wouldn’t say no to them either.

Indie Bay Snacks Spelt Pretzel Bites with Rock Salt – £1

I do like a pretzel so it is fun to see a snack made from them. These are sources of protein and fibre and contain less than 100 calories per portion. Very flavourful too.

MILKYBAR Mix Ups – 65p

The kids were very excited to see these, being big fans of MILKYBAR. These didn’t last very long and were very tasty. We will definitely get these again.

Bravura Foods Free From Fellows Midget Gems – £1.99

These are vegan sweets that are made without sugar, gluten, gelatine and dairy. I was pleasantly surprised by these, expecting them to be lacking in squishiness and flavour but they were great and the whole family enjoyed them.

I was quite pleased with the box this month although I do feel that only a couple of the items really fit the theme of brunch and afternoon tea. I can’t wait to see what next month brings.

What would be your favourite item from this box?

  1. I love these types of boxes, it’s the type of stuff I’d never normally pick up in a normal shop and I’m always pleasantly surprised.
