Degustabox Review June 2015

10 July 2015

For a while now I've been watching in envy as some of my favourite life and beauty bloggers review their monthly subscription boxes of new treats. Like an adult version of a lucky dip bag, I love the idea of being able to try out new products you might not have found otherwise. This month I finally got to join the trend, but instead of lipsticks, the lovely people at Degustabox* sent me a box full of food and drink to try. It was one of the best parcels I've had in a while and was absolutely packed full of things.

I'm not sure what the theme was for the June box, but I really liked it. The first things I tried were the sweets, chocolate filled brioche from Pasquier and the Kallo rice cakes. I've had the mini brioche's before, so I already knew I was going to like these and they're all individually wrapped which makes them a great 'on the go' snack.

There were also some rice snacks from Kallo and Melba thins, which are both pretty nice healthy ways to switch things up in your lunch box. I've yet to try the Love Chin Chin snacks but they look really interesting, they're described as 'looks like a biscuit but tastes like a cake' and are 'all natural', vegetarian and dairy free. Speaking of all natural, probably my favourite thing in the box this month was the Coconom coconut sugar which you can use in baking, drinks, anywhere you'd usually use granulated sugar. I'm going to try this out in some baking over the next few weeks so I'll let you know what differences it makes once I have. 

Finally the drinks. Because I was reviewing the box I got the one with alcohol but there is an alcohol free version you get too. Rekorderlig was probably the only brand I recognised in the box and I was really excited because I absolutely love their drinks. Because I don't like normal beer or cider, I'm always trying to find new 'casual' pub drinks because sometimes being the only one drinking cola or having to order a complicated cocktail just isn't fun, and Rekorderlig are probably my favourite cider producers. I got sent the Strawberry and Lime flavour which isn't my favourite but is still a really nice drink, especially in the warmer weather.

There were also two low sugar soft drinks from Zeo and some Vybe coconut water. I don't particularly like coconut water, so this didn't really interest me but the Zeo drinks are pretty nice.

The Degustabox retails at £12.99 per month, but I think this month the contents more than surpassed that and it gave me a chance to try some things I wouldn't have picked myself. It's definitely something I would try out again. If you'd like to get your own degustabox to try for next month, you can sign up here and if you use the code: U6WDB you'll get £3 off!

*I was sent the contents of this box for the purposes of review. All opinions are my own.
