Degustabox UK review - June 2018 | The LDN Gal

Degustabox UK June 2018 review

The June Degustabox certainly did not fail to impress. Themed on BBQ section, it was packed with delicious flavoursome treats and meal accompaniments just perfect for summertime and these longer evenings.

Here is what I discovered in my latest June 2018 UK Degustabox:

So, what do I think of the June 2018 UK Degustabox?

Capsicana Cook Sauces  

The Capsicana Cook Sauces certainly offer a kick to your cooking. Now, I am not a fan of spice but these sauces are simply bursting with flavour. These Mexican and Latin American inspired sauces, are packed full of authentic ingredients to help brighten up your dinners.

Peckish BBQ Rice Crackers Multi-Pack 

The¬†Peckish BBQ Rice Crackers are simply delicious, not only low in calories but they also taste great. These packs are the perfect healthy treat-meets-snack for on the go. They are baked, not fried, super crunchy and even gluten-free! Let’s face it, no guilt snacks are the best snacks.

Brioche Pasquier Pains au Lait 

These soft¬†Brioche Pasquier Pains au Lait are a must for any household. These super soft and light brioche rolls can be enjoyed round-the-clock. Use them in the morning to make French toast, for a super easy lunch roll or on the BBQ with hot dogs or sausages –¬†they are delicious whether used for sweet or savoury.¬†

Rosie’s Pig Raspberry Roller¬†

Now the Rosie’s Pig Raspberry Roller cider was certainly a treat in our current heatwave! As expected from a fruity cider, it was refreshing and sweet. What did I love about it? The combination of raspberry and cucumber is simply to die for.

Frylight Avocado Oil Cooking Spray 

I love the Frylight sprays, they are super low in calories and great to cook with. Now, this avocado oil spray is no different. I have to admit though, I could not notice the taste of the avocado when cooking.

no&more raspberry and blueberry 

I have to be honest, I really wasn’t a fan of the no&more raspberry and blueberry water. It was very weakly flavoured and I think you’d be better off just placing sliced fruit within a bottle for a fruity pick-me-up.

Mighty Fine Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar 

If you are looking for a naughty treat, look no further than the Mighty Fine Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar. This slightly misshapen honeycomb bar tastes like a luxury Crunchie, coated in Belgian milk chocolate.

Orangina 

Orangina reminds me of childhood. Bursting with flavour and always super fizzy. Both the normal and low sugar versions tasted delicious in their own right and it was nice to sample both. Always delicious and always refreshing.

Idahon Gratin Bake 

I am such a big fan of the Idahon range, having sampled their mashed potato packets before. This bake was delicious and simple to prepare with a dash of water and butter. It went well with vegetarian sausages and vegetables.

The Jelly Bean Factory Fairtrade Box 

I have always loved jelly beans, they are my weakness. The Jelly Bean Factory have always been my go to for their assortment of flavours. Each box is filled with 36 delicious flavours, so be sure to eat them one at a time to take advantage. These are also made using fair trade sugar.

Great British Biscotti Co  

I am never a massive fan of Italian biscotti inspired treats but this proved to be an exception. Within this crumbly Great British Biscotti Co biscuit came pistachios, cranberries and white chocolate. All in all, perfection.

I was very pleased with this box and would buy many of these items again –¬†minus the no&more water which was quite frankly a let down.¬†

I am now a big fan of the Idahon range and their products sneak into my shopping basket often. With all these items in mind, I created two wonderful dinners and had snacks for days.

Degustabox UK review March 2018 | The LDN Gal

Degustabox UK March 2018 review

I always feel so much joy when my Degustabox arrives at the door. It is like a little foodie gift to me each time and full of new and interesting things to try.

If I didn’t recieve it, I probably wouldn’t discover half the quirky foods I now eat.

Here is what I discovered in my latest Degustabox UK March 2018 box:

So, what do I think of the Degustabox UK March 2018?

Mr Lee’s noodles (dragon fire vegetables)¬†

The initial smell of this pot was a little grim. However, I was impressed with its contents and the taste. Inside, you will find a combination of ribbon noodles loaded with a good mix of vegetables. I really liked the indication for noodle preference, showing you where to fill for a more soupy or solid noodle cup, as well as the addition of green beans. That was pretty neat.

Tenzing

I am always hesitant with energy drinks but this pleasantly surprised me. It proved refreshing and bursting with natural taste without the usually harsh tang. It also had the same caffeine as a cup of coffee so proved perfect for a daytime venture into London.

Smarties and Milkybar Eggs

Fab, simply fab. What a combination and perfect just in time for the up-and-coming Easter festivities. These chocolate Smarties and Milkybar eggs were pretty sizeable and lasted about a solid day. Oops.

Haverfoll flapjack

This was certainly another treat and it tasted just like Christmas with a hint of cinnamon and brimming with chunky nuts. A perfect go-to snack for vegans and vegetarians from a fabulous German brand.

Canny milkshake

This tasted like a cocoa-rich milkshake. Rather refined to the usual choco-milk affair. It might have something to do with the fact that it contains date nectar. It is a Northern brand so expect lots of slang and fun.

Shreddies Max

This protein-boosting cereal is a great morning pick me up. These granola bites are packed full of oats and embellished with Shreddies pieces. After a bowl of these, you will be set till lunchtime.

Cirio pasta sauce

This authentic Italian sauce was spectacular, infused with delicious parmesan cheese. It made for a spectacular spaghetti bolognese one evening.

Ribena (pineapple and passionfruit)

Ribena is famed for its blackcurrants but this pineapple and passionfruit affair is pretty wonderful. A very adult squash to say the least. Bursting with flavour, it lasted about a week.

Encona hot sauce

I made the boyfriend try this one and it was certainly a spicy affair, it pretty much set his mouth on fire. A good condiment for those dishes requiring a little shazam. Made with the Carolina reaper chilli, this limited edition sauce is not for the faint of heart.

Roald Dahl (orange juice)

The perfect lunchtime treat from Frobscottle Swiggle Рrefreshing and quirky. The illustrated cartons are very fun and the juice was simply delicious.

Overall, this was a great box with a great mix of European products. I’d have probably skipped on the hot sauce but that was simply down to personal preference.

It was great to try an array of products and many of them were new to me. I would pretty much buy everything again –¬†minus that sauce!¬†

Like what you see? You can order the next Degustabox here.
