So it's that fantastic time again when we await the delivery of our Degustabox. I love the anticipation of what we'll find in the box and what ideas those food conjure up for recipes and meals.
For those that haven't heard of Degustabox (where have you been?!) it is a monthly food delivery box with a bit if difference. You never know what you are going to get and often the foods are new to the market so you get the chance to try things you haven't before and perhaps wouldn't have chosen before. Here's what we received.......
2 x Schwartz Flavour Shots - we got Mexican fajita and Spanidh smoked paprika
Caribbean Twist Strawberry Daiquiri drink - as I'm pregnant this has been passed on to my mum who I'm sure will thoroughly enjoy the fruity flavour
Lindt HELLO Just For You Chocolate Tin - a little treat that D and I couldn't resist tucking into as soon as the box arrived
Cawston Press Kids Blends Apple - Ds an apple juice fiend so LOVED this
Fever tree Ginger Beer and Tonic Water. I've already decided the tonic water is all mine and can't wait until I can treat myself to a delicious G&T once the baby is born
Brioche Pasquier Pain au Lait and
Brioche Pasquier Croissants. We often buy these types of pastries but haven't tried this brand before and they we're delicious. The Brioche rolls just screamed Bread and Butter pudding to me and I have to say made a superb pudding, the recipe will be on the blog shortly.
Dr Oetker Edible Wafer Cases - fab idea and can't wait to get baking with D
Mexican Dave's Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips - we love Mexican food so will be planning a feast along with the Schwartz Mexican flavour shot
Berry White Drink - I'm yet to try this but can't wait as I love all fruit flavoured drinks.
This month Degustabox have introduced a new idea and included a voucher for a chilled product. We got one for a four pack of MOMA! Bircher Museli something I've had many times before and absolutely love, it's similar to overnight oats and seriously delicious. My only concern with the fridge vouchers is that I have so far forgotten to use them when I go shopping and would hate to miss out but it's such a lovely introduction to the boxes I can't complain.
Again I'm really pleased with the box as there's nothing I wouldn't consider buying but plenty I've never tried before and as always it's fantastic value for the £12.99 monthly subscription.
It's certainly something I would recommend if you enjoy trying new foods and challenge yourself to break away from your standard meal ideas. If Degustabox appeals to you and you would like to experience this for yourself the below code gives you a £3.00 discount on your first month
I was given the opportunity to try Degustabox for the purposes of this review but all opinions are my own.
