Degustabox May (Brunch & Afternoon Tea)
The latest Degustabox arrived and the theme of the month is 'Brunch & Afternoon Tea'. Inside the surprise foodie box was another great mix of tasty snacks and sweet treats.
Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out 10 to 15 specially selected foodie products per box. There's always a great mix of new products that I haven't tried before, as well as plenty of treats from more established brands. Each Degustabox costs £12.99, delivery costs are included in the price, and there is no fixed contract involved.
Here's a quick round up of all the products I received in the latest Degustabox:
Koko Dairy Free: This Super Milk is enriched with 9 key vitamins and minerals. It's a great replacement for regular milk. I only use dairy free milk for cereals and hot drinks so this was a very welcome surprise in the Degustabox.
Oteas: I love flavoured black teas so I was excited to try this new (to me) brand. The biodegradable teabags look lovely and smell amazing too! The tea itself is fragrant with a subtle sweetness from the fruity apricot.
Indie Bay: Tasty pretzel bites made with spelt flour and seasoned with rock salt. I enjoyed these as a snack and it's great to know that they are vegan and have less than 100 calories per pack.
Daelmans Stroopwafels: A single pack of Daelmans Stroopwafels which contains two waffles with a caramel filling. My son loved these so much that we've added them to our next shopping list.
Splenda: A mini pack of Splenda sucralose with 100 calorie free sweeteners. The Degustabox leaflet also includes a recipe for a Cinnamon Latte made with Splenda that I will have to give a try.
Fruity Beauties: A fun and nutricious fruity bar that is perfect for kids. This had a soft, chewy texture with a sweet and tangy flavour.
Free From Fellows - Midget Gems: As the name would suggest, these Midget Gems are made without sugar, gluten, gelatine and dairy. They're suitable for vegans and are also free from artificial colours and flavourings. I'm really glad that Degustabox introduced me to this brand as it's definitely one I'll be looking out for from now on. They also make Gummy Bear and Cola Bottles which I hope to find soon.
Hellman's Vegan Mayo: The iconic mayo brand is now vegan! I've been meaning to try this one so thank you Degustabox. The flavour is just as creamy and delicious as the Hellman's Real Mayonnaise and is perfect for sandwiches and veggie burgers.
Kuhne Gin Cornichons: Extra crunchy guerkins refined with a Gin to give them a refreshing, fruity edge. There is also a Whiskey Cornichhons variety available that adds sweeter, vanilla notes.
Firefly: A refreshing blend of Lemon, Lime & Ginger with botanticals such as nettle and dandelion. It's lovely over ice with a reviving citrus flavour.
Shore Seaweed Puffs: These are available in four different flavours - I received the Lime, Chilli & Coconut. They're full of flavour, with each of the three elements coming through. The chilli provides a bit of a kick but is balanced by the creaminess of the coconut.
MilkyBar Mix Ups: I've already bought these a few times since they've been released as my kids really enjoy them. The mix of white and milk chocolate makes these a winner.
Overall, I enjoyed the selection of surprise groceries in this month's Degustabox - there were plenty of new brands to discover. I was especially happy to find the Hellman's Vegan Mayo, Firefly Drinks and Oteas. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this months Degustabox in the comments below.
