Degustabox July

Degustabox July
Degustabox July was a summer box of refreshing drinks and treats for the warm days and evenings. First to try were....

Berrywhite organic drinks, cranberry and guava, lemon and ginger. These were really nice, made with sparkling spring water with no added sugar. The cranberry flavour was my favourite and great as a summer drink.

Seabrooks Lattice Heroes Crisps £1.99, vegetarian chorizo flavour and gluten free. Really tasty and eaten all at once on our travels.

Jordan's Swiss Style Muesli £2.79
Crispy wheat flakes, oats, raisins and finely sliced almonds with no added sugar. I don't eat muesli and cereal in the morning but have it for lunch or an afternoon snack. This was a nice mix and I'd try it again if I saw it on offer.

Bahlsen Choco Leibniz biscuits 4 x 40p
A favourite anyway in our household particularly with my son. The chocolate is so moreish and these handy small packs were great to pop into my bag.

Rejuvenation Water £1.99
A refreshing drink made with Derbyshire spring water. I had the Spanish Orange flavour which was lovely but they are in apple and mint plus ginger flavours too.

Brookside chocolates £3.40
Now these were divine. I was really enjoying them until my son found them and pinched them off me. Exotic fruit and berry flavours blended with dark chocolate. I really hope I come across these again in the supermarket.

Rowntree's Fruit Pastille Infusions £1.29
I don't eat jelly sweets but I'm reliably informed by my two young testers that these were rather nice. 3 flavour fusions - orange & grapefruit, raspberry & pomegranate, apple & elderflower. No artificial flavours, preservatives or colours, super for keeping them happy on the summer car journeys. 
Felix Gerkins £2.15
Skips and dances and eats gherkins, I love these. Boo hiss if you don't. These gherkins are handpicked in Sweden. HallĂ„!  Crunchy and sweet with added spices, I've been adding these to my salads.

Itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins 2 x £1
Harvested from South Korea's clear seas and naturally full of iodine, zinc, iron and B12. Very low in calories and a great addition to salads, all sorts of savoury foods or as a snack. Not one for us and I'd prefer seaweed products more locally sourced like what we see in Pembrokeshire.

Sarson's Balsamic Vinegar £1.99
A full bodied Modena balsamic vinegar for salads and dipping. Really tangy and multiple uses from making dressings or adding to stews.

Cracker drinks £1.50
Pineapple, coconut and lime juice that has no added sugar and was lovely. Less than 90 calories per serving so not too bad as a drink even though I'm on a diet. Be great to add some chopped fruit too, to make an non alcoholic punch.

ALO Drink £2.45
A curious drink with blobs of aloe vera in it so quite a strange sensation but not a bad taste. 

Degustabox is a great way of trying out new food products each month, it become a surprise that we look forward to, what exciting treats will we find. It's well worth trying out and you can do at a reduced price, use the code BLDEG15 for £7 off.

*I received a box for the purpose of the review, words are my own honest opinion.
