It definitely seems to be picnic season right now, so it was a great treat to receive a picnic themed May Degustabox. There were only a few brands that I had previously heard of in this one, so it was good to try some new brands and foods that I wouldn’t have considered before.
- Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
- Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
- All for much less than you would pay in the shops!
So what was inside the May Degustabox?
Zeo Soft Drinks (Orange & Mango)
I’ve had a product from Zeo previously in the June Degustabox from last year. This one came in a can though which makes it easier to take out & about with you, perfect for picnics! This one has a really fruity flavour, with the mango being the more prominent flavour. It was really easy to drink it down in one as it was so refreshing!
Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer
I’m not usually a fan of ginger beer but I’ve never actually tried Crabbie’s Original before so I gave it a go (sharing it with The Husband). Again, this was actually really refreshing and the ginger wasn’t as overpowering as I thought it would be.
Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp
I have to admit, I was sold on peanut with this one! This huge bar is a real treat; Cadbury Dairy Milk with a peanut filling, peanut pieces and crunchy crispies, topped with caramel and finished with peanut halves on top. So naughty but so good together! Each piece was big though so just three pieces was enough to be the equivalent of a single serving chocolate bar.
MOMA Gluten Free Raspberry & Coconut Bircher Muesli
I’ve tried a different brand of bircher muesli before so I knew how I needed to prepare this, mixing the muesli with apple juice and yogurt and then topping with fruit. The great thing about this one is that it can be ready in five minutes, perfect for those rushed mornings. It is seriously creamy and contains lots of pieces of fruit. I’ve also enjoyed this just sprinkled on my fruit & yogurt.
Millions (Milk Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Sour Strawberry)
I haven’t had Millions for ages, but I’ve never actually tried the sour ones; I didn’t even know there were chocolate covered ones! The sour ones were really sour and even made me pull a face, which doesn’t happen often! The chocolate ones were a lovely combination, but they were really chewy; definitely a bag for sharing.
Cereal Lovers Crunchtime Nuggets (Forest)
These nuggets made of nuts, seeds and malt granola are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast, or an early morning picnic. The pack is great for sharing and the nuggets themselves were as the name says, crunchy. I’m definitely going to keep an eye for the other flavours, Sunshine and Chocolate.
Deli Kitchen Skinni Wrap
These wraps are definitely unique – a rectangular shape with a triangular fold. The purpose of these; to stop everything falling out of the bottom. What a truly brilliant idea! The wraps themselves are quite thin but that doesn’t compromise on flavour, and it means they are only a fab 91 calories (or 4.5 syns) each.
Hippeas In Herbs We Trust
I’m not sure what I expected from these but when I saw chickpeas as an ingredient I was a bit dubious as I don’t generally like chickpeas. I think I thought they were going to be dried chickpeas or something! But I was actually pleasantly surprised. They’re basically puffed “crisps” made from chickpeas, with a lovely herb flavour so I wouldn’t really tell they were made from chickpeas if I hadn’t known.
Portlebay Popcorn (Sweet Thai Sriracha)
I’m a lover of flavoured popcorn but I’d never heard of this particular brand before. I was really looking forward to trying this particular flavour as sweet thai chilli is one of my favourite tastes. I have to say, I wasn’t expecting it to be quite as spicy as it was! There was a little sweetness to it, but it was mostly heat. I did eat the whole bag to myself though…
Candy Kittens (Sweet Pineapple)
All of us like sweets in our house – especially the boys as a treat. With big sharing bags like this, we usually keep them in the car for the odd short journey, and munch our way through them on a long journey! These sweets have a unique shape and the size of them means just one or two is enough at a time. This particular flavour was a bit too sweet for me, though it was really pineapple-y. Jacob wasn’t too keen either. I’d really like to try the Eton Mess flavour though!
Before receiving this Degustabox, I had no idea that coffee in a bag (like a tea bag) existed! Bean Bags claim to taste like real coffee, but are as quick and easy to make as instant coffee. They come in a pyramid shape, and you just prepare like a tea bag really. Lo and behold, they did have a distinct real coffee flavour, I was pleasantly surprised!
