I was kindly send this Degustabox* March box to review and was intrigued as soon to see what kind of food I would receive. When the box arrived I was part way through my Dechox to raise money for British Heart Foundation so I had to wait until the start of April to enjoy the chocolate products.
Included in the pack were a few different breakfast bits. These included an 8 pack of Brioche Pasquier (£1.40) which suited me well as I love pain au chocolat so this was perfect. You can warm them in the oven but also work in the microwave as this is easier and quicker. Second were two different Weetabix On The Go Breakfast Drink (2 x £1.50) that contain an extra 20g of protein to deliver a good breakfast in one handy little drink. They were nice and fruity, and with the extra protein I think they are quite good value. The last breakfast item was something I haven't seen before, which was a 1 litre carton of a2 Milk (£1.39). This is pure cows' milk that only contains the A2 protein and the milk is available in most supermarkets. I think this would be a popular choice for people who normally struggle with dairy products. You can enjoy this in coffee, cereal, smoothies and more, so it could replace your normal milk.
I was very excited to receive the Metcalfe's Skinny Popcorn (£1.50) in the flavour cinema sweet. I do love popcorn (but only the sweet one) so to find one that has 67% less sugar and only 93 calories per serving is great so you can enjoy it knowing its not too bad. Something a little different was the Kent's Kitchen Stuffing (£1.85) in the Apricot, Apple & Ginger flavour. This is a nice addition to a roast dinner and we enjoyed it with ours on Easter Sunday. The next item is something that brought back memories of my school days. These were the 4 pack of Chewits (£4 x 35p) that had two packs of strawberry and two of blackcurrant and I'd forgotten how much I like them.
Another sweet treat was the Parle Hide & Seek (59p) chocolate chip biscuits which were really nice, and I would definitely buy. The chocolate tasted like Dairy Milk so I was shocked that they only cost 59p. They also came with the Parle Monaco (39p) biscuits, which are a savoury snack which are perfect when you are a bit peckish and sort of remind me of Ritz biscuits and I'd be keen to buy these again. When I noticed the pack of cheddar & onion Pipers Crisps (£2.00) I couldn't wait to try them. They were really nice and was left craving them afterwards so will be looking out for them. Moving from savoury to sweet, the Lindt White Chocolate Gold Bunny (£2.99) was always going to be a welcome addition. Lindt is a firm fave of mine when it comes to chocolate but hadn't tried the white bunny before. I can safely say it was just as nice as all their other white chocolate.
Something a little bit different for a snack were the Kallo Quinoa & Seeds Multigrain Cakes (£1.89). They can also be enjoyed as a nice lunch and I found they paired well with some houmous. Also included were the Kallo Milk Chocolate Rice Cake Rounds (£1.00). I found this good as a low calorie snack when I fancied something sweet, and seen as they are only 78 calories per cake I couldn't complain. The last item was the Karyatis Meze To Go (£1.99) which included a sweet & smokey roasted red pepper and tangy feta dip, paired with crunchy rosemary crackers, which both come in a neat box. I love items like that that give you something a little different to snack on.
I was really impressed by this March Degustabox as there was so much great food and drink packed in. Considering how much the box would cost, you get a fair amount of saving on the products compared to buying them all individually. It's great to try out new products and it's definitely opened my eyes to look out for new products when doing my next food shop. They also provided me with a discount code which offers a £6.00 discount! Just enter BLDEG15 when ordering. The total of all the items would cost £21.39 however this Degustabox was only £12.99. If you used the discount code you would get nearly £22.00 worth of products for only £6.99 which is a huge saving.
