That time has come around again when I have been trying all of the goodies from this months Degustabox*. I love trying out new brands that I might not have tried otherwise and have enjoyed the previous months boxes

Something I had never heard of before opening this months Degustabox was the ALO Drink (£2.45) that are made with handpicked aloe vera from an organic farm. It's a really healthy option that's gluten and fat free and will give you all the benefits of real aloe vera in a refreshing drink, however the taste wasn't for me. Another healthy drink included was the Rejuvenation Water (£1.99) which is designed to help fuel the immune system to build up a natural resilience to stress, depression and anxiety as well as aiding protein digestion. It was nice to have a fresh drink that you knew was actually help your body stay healthy. Last on the drinks list was something from Cracker Drinks (£1.50). This is a natural fruit juice to give you 1 of your 5 a day without having any added sugar or artificial sweeteners. It was a nice tasting juice and I was happier drinking it knowing it was better for me and wasn't packed full of sugar. 

Meal Ingredients
The Jordans Muesli (£2.79) contains crispy wheat flakes, creamy oats. juicy raisins and finely sliced almonds. I've been trying to switch up my breakfast routine recently so getting something like this gives me something new to try that would be a healthier choice. For lunch and dinner meals, the Felix Gerkhins (£2.15) give a perfect addition to a sandwich or can be served with a burger. They have a sweet and crunchy taste and have just enough spice to them to add some flavour. I particularly love making spaghetti bolognaise and meatballs and one of the ingredients is vinegar, so this Sarson's Balsamic Vinegar (£1.99) was perfect as I can use it for numerous dishes and it gives a nice flavouring to the meals.

I was intrigued when I saw the Seabrooks Lattice Crisps (£1.99) as they were Chicken Jalfrezi flavour which is something I've never tried before. They were such a nice flavour and were quite spicy but not too overpowering and I would definitely buy these again. Onto something a little sweeter now, the Bahlsen Choco Leibniz (£0.40) are crisp butter biscuits that are set into smooth continental milk chocolate. They come in a handy pack of two so are perfect snack size when you want to indulge in something sweet. Speaking of chocolate, the Brookside Chocolates (£3.40) are something a little different to your standard packet. They are smooth dark chocolates with a fruit and berry flavour which give you something to snack on when you are bored on your normal chocolate. 

If you're more into your sweets than your chocolate, then these Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles Infusions (£1.29) might be for you. These infusions are meant to be a twist on the original fruit pastilles which includes new flavour combinations of orange & grapefruit, raspberry & pomegranate and apple & elderflower. I have always enjoyed these type of sweets and the new infusions were something new to enjoy and I would definitely buy them again. Also included as a snack were the Itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins (£1.00) and were something I would never normally choose. They are naturally full of zinc, iron, B12 and iodine and contain less than 2 calories per thin. Being some healthy they would be a good addition to a salad, although I just couldn't get myself to like the flavour. 

That's all for the July Degustabox. If you are thinking about signing up to Degustabox then I have a discount code to save you £7.00 off your order, just enter BLDEG15 at the checkout!
