March Degustabox Review

I’m ecstatic to have been asked to review the Degustabox for the next few months. I am sure you were all sick to death of me going on about the February Degustabox! Apologies in advance for an over share of this months box, also.
 
My box arrived one day after dispatch by DPD. I love DPD, if I was looking to buy something but didn’t know which website to buy from, I would pick the one that used DPD. Degustabox sent me an e-mail telling me what time my box would be delivered within the hour. So I knew that it would arrive between 13:15 and 14:15. And that the driver was called Simon. Hi, Simon. Give me my box. It really bugs me when you have to wait all day for something because it is going to be delivered between 8am and 6pm. DPD is my hero as there is nothing worse than a ‘Sorry we’ve missed you’ note through your door. You can also change the delivery date from the e-mail if you will not be in. 
 
Enough about that, let’s look at my box. #thatswhatshesaid.

 The thing I noticed first was the plastic bubble wrap that was protecting the products. I had seen some people post on the Degustabox Facebook page saying their box was damaged, while both of my boxes have arrived in tip top condition, it’s nice to see they were taking that into account and trying to prevent this happening to others.

The Products:

 Mexican Dave’s Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips.

I do love me some tortilla chips! I’m dying to make some chilli nachos with these – chilli, cheese, jalepenos and guacamole – yum.
£1 each

 Organico Italian Durum Wheat Pasta and Tomato and Basil Sauce.

Organico produces clean, fair food – they are eager to work with family run and co-operative producers to protect vanishing jobs in the country side. Their sauce is made from tomatoes that were picked and packed within 24 hours to ensure freshness. 
£1.49 pasta
£1.99 suace

 Drink Me Chocolate Chai and Tea Lattee.

I’ve seen the Spiced Chai Latte version of this in Tesco and I’ve always wanted to try it, but never bought it for some reason. I was delighted when I saw these products in the box. I’ve never tried Earl Grey tea before and only recently tried Chai. Get in my belleeehhh now, please.
£2.55 Chocolate Chai
£6.50 Tea:Latte Multipack

 Tyrrells Proper Popcorn.

I’ve seen these in Tesco also and I do love popcorn! I’ve never tried Sweet & Salty though. There are available in other flavours – Salted, Mature Cheddar, Sticky Toffee Pudding and Sour Cream & Jalapeno Chilli. These are from a multipack of 6.
£1.80/6.

 Schwartz Flavour Shots – Spanish Paella and Italian Creamy Herb Tagliatelle

I’ve seen these around too and know you can get other flavours. They are a blend of herbs, spices and seasonings infused in oils to make cooking delicious meal less.. faffy. They are currently at promotion for £1 at Tesco, also.
£1.40 each.

 Shaken Udder Milkshakes.

These all natural milkshakes contain real milk or Belgium chocolate. They have no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. 
£1.89 each

 Moma! Plain and Cranberry & Raisin Porridge.

These handy to go porridge pots are made from whole grain oats, they are simple to make – you just add water. I’m looking forward to trying these when I’m feeling too lazy to cook! I’m much more likely to have this as a snack, as I’m not a breakfast food person at all.
£1.50 each

 Some recipes were included in the box again, with information about the products on the other side.

To get your own box for £12.99 including shipping from the Degustabox Website. The box is delivered between the 25th and 30th if each month.

I have a discount code also for £3 off: ZJX6W
