Last month’s Degustabox contained goodies from huge brands such a Cadbury’s, The Jelly Bean Factory, Heinz and Weetabix (check it out here). Let’s take a look at this month’s treats…
I have a ridiculously sweet tooth so this bar of gluten-free chocolatey goodness was the first thing from Apil’s Degustabox to be devoured. It contains Bolivian popped quinoa which is soaked in a secret smoky infusion and then combined with organic Dominican (39%) milk chocolate. It contains an unusual combination of textures and flavours which explode in your mouth to give a truly unique taste experience.
Everyone’s favourite mints are now available in a sugar-free handy pot for on-the-go. Perfect for travelling with, this convenient little tub is accredited by the Oral Health Foundation as being kind to teeth and is flavoured with natural mint oils to refresh your breath at a moments notice.
New York Delhi’s ‘ViPnuts’ is a delicious range of gourmet jumbo peanuts. Hot Chilli contains a fiery kick that is dangerously hot. They use top end range of spices and blends. Current flavours also include Classic Sea Salt, Manuka Honey & Mustard, Bollywood BBQ, Chilli Lemon and Masala. All are natural and GMO-Free.
Crammed with almonds, coconut, sunflower and golden flax seeds Whitworth’s ‘Maca-roons’ were actually my favourite product of this month, which is surprising considering they’re not covered in chocolate! They are naturally high in fibre, gluten-free, soya-free and are even suitable for veggies.
Lattice crisps are actually sliced both ways to hold even more Sea Salt and Black Pepper flavour and give a delicious crunch. The are incredibly flavoursome crisps and some major restraint will be needed to resist the urge to eat the entire bag in one sitting!
These seeds and high in fibre, protein and omega 3, they are also free from nuts and gluten and are super environmentally friendly. They are perfect for sprinkling on cereal, yoghurt, salads and stir-fries, and can be even used to give your baking a healthy boost.
These packs contain freeze-dried fruits such a pineapple, grapes and strawberries. Freeze drying ensures that only the water is removed and all the goodness kept in. Each pack contains one of your 5 a day and are suitable for vegan and gluten-free diets.
There are two varieties available this month, Americal Road Trip and Machu Picchu. I’m so happy to have received the Road Trip version as it contains cranberries, almonds and orange zest – basically heaven in a bowl! This full sized box was a definite highlight this month as every spoonful is an absolute delight. I can definitely see myself purchasing this again.
Pasta is always a quick and easy favourite at dinner time in my house, so this full sized bag of whole wheat penne pasta came in handy. It’s quick to cook (only 11 minutes) and is filling, wholesome and a food cupboard must-have.
What did you think of this month’s Degustabox? I like how April’s box catered to a wide ranch of dietary needs and contained full sized products such as the Dorset Cereal and Garofalo Penne Pasta. I nearly forgot to mention that there are actually two versions of this months box, one alcoholic which contains a bottle of Celia Organic Beer | £2.49 and a non-alcoholic version with a 500ml bottle of Fentiman’s Pink Grapefruit and Tonic Water | £1.80.
