This is my second box I have kindly been send by Degustabox* and after being really impressed with the March box, I was keen to try out what this month had to offer.
With the weather picking up recently, it was a perfect time to receive the Pimms (£2.29) to enjoy on a sunny day. The strawberry and cucumber flavour is a nice sweet addition and was very nice to drink over ice in the sun. The Rejuvenation Water (£1.99)is designed to help create a natural resilience to stress, depression and anxiety. I received the apple and mint flavour and it reminded me a little bit of Vitamin water. Another drink I tried was the Green Lady (£1.99), which uses green tea leaves to create a drink to be enjoyed as an alternative to alcohol. It was very refreshing and again is great for this time of year. While I don't use Canderel (£3.00)is cups of tea, it comes come in very useful for baking. Having the same taste and appearance as sugar but with zero calories, its a good option to maintain a healthy diet.
The Levi Roots (£1.00) sauces come in very handy when cooking as you don't have to marinade it, but just pour over whatever you are cooking and away you go. I had the Jerk flavour which worked nicely to flavour the chicken, and I'd also like to try the BBQ flavour. For this meal the Veetee Basmati Rice(£1.29) was perfect to use as it had 2 good portions and is ready in only 2 minutes. These quick cook packets would be great to have stocked in the cupboard for when you need a quick addition to a meal. I also received a Veetee Wholegrain Brown Rice & Quinoa (£1.49) which would work well with other meals.
The Milkybar Milk & Crunchy 4 Pack (£1.00) are a good size if you fancy a little something to eat. The crunchy version of the Milkybar was surprisingly nice and something a bit different to other white chocolate. Something a little different was the Smarties Sharing Block (£1.29) which was always going to be something that I would enjoy, and came in useful on a recent long car journey. The Bebeto Fruit Strings (£1.99) that have reduced levels of processed sugars, plus the fact the are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. These were lovely and have travel sized packets which made it a good snack option. The last item was a savoury option which would be enjoyed as a snack or alternatively a light lunch. The Parle Rusk (89p)is a crispy and crunchy toast and I really enjoyed them with Philadelphia for lunch.
Once again, I was really impressed by what was in this months box, and it gave me some new ideas for meals, drinks and snacks. I think the Degustabox is a great opportunity to try out new brands and get a taste for different items that you might not normally buy. They also provided me with a discount code to offer you £6.00 discount, and all you have to do in enter BLDEG15 when you order!
