April Degustabox Review!

Posted on May 1, 2014

Hi Guys!

So today I’m going to tell you about my April Degustabox! April’s box was pretty awesome I have to say, it included lots of snacks for when you’re on the go which is really handy, and some cooking chocolate which I know I’ll make good use of! I’ve already devoured the Lindor bars, mini rolls, crisps and rhubarb drink, I’m trying to hold back and save some of the other things! My favourite was definitely the Linor Chocolate Bars! 🙂

So here is a rundown of the goodies…

CRABBIE’S – Ginger Beer Drink

To give Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer its uniquely refreshing taste, we blend steeped ginger and the finest exotic spices for up to 6 weeks. And we’re just as creative with our other varieties. Our Strawberry & Lime flavour fuses zesty lime with scrumptious strawberries, and we use real Scottish raspberries in our raspberry flavoured alcoholic ginger beer.

LINDT – Lindor Treat Bar x3

Lovingly created by the Lindt Master Chocolatiers, Lindor allows you to melt away into a moment of pure bliss. Now you can enjoy blissful moments anywhere you go with the Lindor 38g Treat Bar.

CAWSTON PRESS – Rhubarb Drink

We think there might be room in your fridge for a better soft drink. One with better ingredients, without preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners. It’s time to love sparkles again.

CLEARSPRING – Miso Soup On The Go x2

Miso soup on the Go is as simple as just adding water. Rich in satisfying flavour, low in fat and full of concentrated goodness. Ideal for a quick and healthy lunch or a light but satisfying snack. Each miso block is freeze-dried, locking in all the nutritional benefits.Vegan friendly and can be enjoyed by everyone.

GO SPLASH – Go Splash water flavour

Go Splash™makes water exciting and helps you to create your favourite drink without adding sugar and lots of calories. Each pocket sized bottle flavours 6 litres of water and doesn’t need refrigeration. Wherever you are; simply squeeze the preferred amount of Go Splash™ in your water and enjoy it your way!

KEOGH’S – Atlantic Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar Crisps

Keogh’s Farm is a family owned and run potato growing and crisping business based in North County Dublin, an area famous for producing Ireland’s finest potatoes.

MCVITIE’S – Jaffa Cakes Mini Rolls

Grab some zesty mischief this summer with our scrummy new mini rolls! Individually wrapped, you can now pop our mini rolls in your freezer and enjoy frozen as a light, refreshing summer snack.

Organico sources good, clean, fair foods. This is the Slow Food movements motto. It means good in quality, clean in terms of the ingredients we use and the impact we have on the environment and fair in terms of the way suppliers and workers are treated. Our pasta is sourced from a pioneer organic co-operative in the La marche region which was set up to protect vanishing jobs in the countryside and to promote bio-diversity and rich agricultural soils that renew themselves.

Organico – Tomato and Basil Sauce

Our tomato sauce comes from another co-operative in Tuscany. The tomatoes are picked and packed within 24 hours to maximise the freshness of the product – leading to a few frenetic weeks in August – and each jar could actually be tracked back to a specific field. The pasta is slow dried and shaped with bronze plates, 100% La Marche durum wheat. Simple products, executed with care.

I’m so happy with all of these products, this box is a fantastic bargain for only £12.99 including delivery! So far I’ve devoured the milkshakes, which were lovely, and the popcorn. I’m looking forward to trying the porridge for my breakfast tomorrow, and the pasta and sauces will be on the menu soon too!
