My March 2015 Degustabox – Unboxing / Review – An amazing box!

Last month’s Degustabox was really good, I didn’t think there was a chance that the March box would be as good (you  know how it is with subscription boxes, they tend to fluctuate like mad) but I was very, very wrong. It’s not as good, it is much, much better! I opened the box and was, instantly, filled with joy. 

If you decide to order a Degustabox, you can get £3 off the £12.99 price if you use my discount code: 76IGB.

It makes perfect sense that the March box would be Easter themed, especially when it comes to a food box, who doesn’t want some tasty Easter treats turning up on their doorstep?! 
Savoury cupboard type items, first, all three of which made me do some internal ‘yay-ing’! 
We’ve seen Brioche Pasquier items in Degustaboxes before, and they’ve always been a welcome sight, but these were different from the items I’ve had before. These ‘Baked Bread Bites’ instantly intrigued me, and they’re bacon flavoured which is always a winner. They remind me of a bacon flavoured crouton and they are very nice – They’re launching soon at 50p a bag which isn’t cheap but makes a nice snack and would even go well to add some texture in a salad.
Kent’s Kitchen have appeared, again, and this time it’s an item I think I’ll be able to use! We’ve had some fantastic looking curry items in the past but they’ve just seemed a bit too hot, for our family, but this ‘Posh Noodle’ in spicy Szechuan is right up my street. I’ve not tried it yet but with 222 calories I think it’ll fit in nicely with my attempts to eat better. These cost £1.75 each and are made with all natural ingredients.

BBQ sauce next… oh yes. We have noodles, bacon flavoured snacks And BBQ sauce, already, it honestly felt like this box was made for me! This is by BBQUE and it’s an Original Bavarian sauce which is flavoured with cranberry, beer, honey and apples and it, is, Delicious! I love BBQ sauces and this one is near the top of the list now that I’ve tried it – When you smell it it smells smoky, and when you taste it on its own it tastes smoky, but when you eat it With something it’s sweet and smoky and just So good. These bottles are huge and cost £3.99.

Some sweeter cupboard items next – Starting with a natural sweetener from Natvia. I’ve not tried this, yet, as I’m a bit funny with artificial sweeteners (natural or not), but I am definitely going to try this as it’d be amazing to get a sweetener that I like. This is a sample sized box. 
I love granola and I eat a lot of it, I actually want to find a new one as the one I’ve been eating has a bit too much sugar in it. Seeing a massive bag of granola by Jordans in the box made me very happy and when I saw that it’s a 30% less fat version I was even happier! I’ve not tried this, yet, but it’ll be ready when my current box ends. This huge bag is worth £3.69.

Drinks next and there’s one alcoholic and one non-alcoholic, yay! I, instantly, noticed the fantastic flavours of the Crabbie’s Alcoholic Fruits. These don’t contain any ginger but are full of fruity niceness instead; there’s ‘Raspberry & Rhubarb’, ‘Black Cherry’ and ‘Zesty Lemon’ which, as you can see, I have two of. I haven’t tried these yet but I can’t wait, the flavours sound delicious (I quite want to pick up the lemon flavour too!) – These bottles are £1.50 each. 
Next we have two bottles of Juiceburst – This brand has 14 flavours, and 3 in the skinny range – I have one of those three flavours, in mango & lime. These are  one of your 5 a day and are only 99 calories which is really rather cool. These bottles are £1.25 each. 

Ok, so I’m guilty, I kept the best until last. I was having a really bad day when this box arrived, imagine how happy I was when I opened the box up and saw all of these things, all of this sugary goodness!

I’ve heard of Maynards ‘Sour Patch Kids’ but hadn’t tried them yet and I Love sour sweets, in fact I love sweets in general, I’ve even been going for them more than chocolate recently. These were the first things I tried, from the box, and they were sooo good (Note the use of ‘were’) – They’re super sour but the sour coating covers a delicious fruity sweet and they’re just so good. Admittedly, I did end up feeling a bit like my mouth was burned after I ate for too many but… y’know, never mind! These cost £1 and I want more, lots more.

Sticking with the theme of sweets I was also rather pleased to see some Bassetts ‘Jelly Babies’ in the box and I was even more pleased when I realised that it was a new release; a bag of Just berry flavoured ones! This bag contained (yes, past tense again) only the red, purple and pink Jelly Babies, yum! These bags are £1.48 and I think I’d be mightily tempted to go for this option, over a normal bag, again. 
Lastly, Lindt. Oh, Lindt, how I love thee. When I was younger I found Lindt truffles too rich but these days I flipping love them. When I saw two bags of Lindor mini eggs in the box I was very very very happy. These bags contain eggs made of dark chocolate, milk and white chocolate and they’re delicious. I’ve not had too many of them, because I’m being good (ignore previous mentions of sweets being all gone) and because these are best in moderation, too many is too rich. I was really surprised that I liked the dark ones, as well as the other two, because I’m not normally a fan. Amazing, I’d really recommend these as an Easter treat for the grown-ups in your lives. They’re £2 a bag.

This box was sent to me for my consideration for review purposes but all opinions are honest and are my own.

    I was really impressed with this months box we all love an easter treat after all!

    I've wanted to subscribe for ages but I'm a vegetarian so jelly sweets are out for me. I wish there was a way to tick a box to guarantee things will be gelatine free.

      Ahh yeah that would be nice, I guess it's hard for them as they wouldn't be able to guarantee a set amount of things if they had to keep certain items out. There are other foody boxes out there, though, that might be more suitable for a vegetarian 🙂
