April Degustabox Review

I’m sure by know, ya’ll know I’m a massive fan of Degustabox, the subscription box that sends you an assortment of yummy products to try each month. 

The box was delivered to me on Friday, but I missed it so had to wait until yesterday for it to be safely in my arms. There is nothing sadder than a missed parcel slip! When I got home, I opened the box then made Lilly guess what was in my box – which is now becoming a monthly ‘game’. She did rather well in guessing the contents of last months box, but the only thing she got right in this one was some crisps. Loser. 

Let’s see what was inside. 

Lindt 38g Treat Bar:
They must have known there were three of us in this house as I was sent three of these lovely bars to try! I gave one to Lilly and one to Christine because I am kind. Lindt chocolate is always a joy to try.
80p each.

McVitie’s Mini Rolls – Tropicool and Berry Burst.

These summer flavours of the classic mini roll look interesting – the packaging told me to freeze them, I don’t usually like doing what I’m told to because I’m a bit of a brat, but I have some sat in the freezer now. I can’t imagine what they will be like frozen.

£1.30 each.

Dr Oetker Extra Dark and Milk Cooking Chocolate.

LILLEHHHHHHH, hear me yell. Cook for me! I’m getting the chefs on bored for this one, hopefully she’ll cook some brownies or something so I can give this a cheeky nibble. I’d try to bake myself, but would probably burn the house down. I’m not even joking. 

£1.69 each.

Cawston Press Rhubarb

There’s no preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners in this sparking drink. Rhubarb flavoured drink? Very excited to try this! 

£1 each.

Crabbie’s Raspberry Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

Probably my favourite thing in this box. BEEER! Give me more beer (and wine), please! I’m thinking of mixing this in a cocktail for Christines birthday on Thursday. Nom. I’ll let you know, if I do!

£2.19 each.

Go Splash Blackcurrant.

I’ve been eyeing these up for a while now since I first saw them several months ago. It’s basically highly concentrated cordial in a tiny bottle. This little guy will make 30 glasses of juice – great for people like me that have very little kitchen space!


Mornflake Superfast Pots.

All you add is water to these breakfast cereals on the go. They even come with a spoon. Intertesting concept, I’ve seen similar products were you add milk, but never water. Magic.


Clearspring Miso soup.

Miso soup is one of those things I’ve always wanted to try but never had. I’ve now got two to try. Low in fat and full of concentrated goodness – these are perfect for a light lunch or a quick snack.


Keogh’s Farm Crisps.
Salt and vinegar are my all time favourite crisps, so when I saw these gluten free treats in my box, I was happy to see this flavour. You can find them in the ‘World Food’ section at Tesco, if your store has the Irish section. We do have one at ours but I’ve never bought anything from it. I basically ate these right away and they are kind of like the ‘kettle chips’. Very crunchy, yum,
£1 each.
I was quite pleased with this box, it was more ‘snacky’ the previous two I’ve received. I always love trying these products out as they always seem very indulgent and great quality.
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 for £3 off: IBI0L
