AUGUST DEGUSTABOX

Sharing is caring!

If you remember, our August Degustabox arrived just before we left for our summer holiday in Wales, and it looked delicious!  We’ve been trying a few of the products over the past couple of weeks and our favourites from this month’s box have been:

Willy Chase’s Fit Corn – £2.19

This was apple cider flavoured, and my palate is clearly much less refined when it comes to popcorn because all I could think was that I was eating the dessert equivalent of fish and chips with the fish.  It was SO good. Everyone else in my house looked at the packet, tried a few and walked away. I’m not a popcorn eater but you know what? I’ve found the popcorn for me!  Best popcorn ever, and the price is brilliant too.

Dorset Cereals Bircher Muesli – £3.49

We love Dorset Cereals but I’d never tried this variety before.  I mixed them with apple juice and yoghurt and they were SO good.  Mornings aren’t as glum any longer thanks to the August Degustabox – I wait until the two big boys have gone to school though, haha.

Tabasco Sweet and Sticky Barbecue Sauce – £1.99

We used this on our holiday BBQ and our chicken was delicious!  Not too sticky, but just enough.

Get More Multivitamins Lemon and Lime Drink – £1.45

The boys took this one and LOVED it.  It’s a fantastic way to get vitamins into the boys whilst they think they’re drinking something naughty.

August Degusta Box

A few of the other products in the August Degustabox box were…

Nutripot – £2.49 per pot

Since Gav was at work and I had friends coming over, for two days I’ve enjoyed eating these pots. Moroccan Cous Cous and Aromatic Thai Noodles.  I normally associate the word Thai with a lemongrass taste and when I ate these noodles I felt more of a mild Indian spices flavour.  The Moroccan cous cous was pleasant but neither pot really tickled my tastebuds.  I would eat them again, but the weren’t tasty enough for me to reach for them in the supermarket sadly – unless they were the only healthy option on a lunch break, because food containing over 50% of your RDA of vitamins and minerals is pretty amazing.

Rakusen’s Snackers – £1.29 [plain] £1.49 [gluten free]

Crackers are generally a big hit in our family.  Sadly these weren’t.  Even the mister, who enjoys crackers for their plain taste, wasn’t impressed.  I would actually avoid buying these sadly.

Oloves Olives [RRP £1]

These were pleasantly surprising.  I’m not an olive eater, but we chopped these into some chicken linguine and they were delicious.

We’ve still to try the…

  • Clipper Lime & Ginger Green Tea
  • Geeta’s Curry Pastes [Rogan Josh and Tikka Masala]
  • Geeta’s Premium Mango Chutney
  • Fentiman’s Sparkling Lime and Jasmine Drink
  • Mahou Cinco Estrellas Lager

We’re looking forward to September’s box!  If you’d like to subscribe you can use code BLDEG15 to get £7 off!

We were gifted our August Degustabox in return for our honest opinions.
