Each month the team at Degustabox sends me a foodie box to review and sample. The April box was filled with even more eclectic food treats that I have come to expect. If you don’t know by now Degustabox is a monthly subscription surprise tasting box. Every month Degustabox selects and sends out a different range of new and limited edition food products from well known and independent food brands. It is good value, for a monthly fee (with no commitment or obligation) of £12.99 customers get a box of goodies which is worth approximately twice that and delivery is included in the price.
I love pomegranates as a fruit but have never tried pomegranate juice so this was a bit of a taste adventure. It was refreshing and not too sweet which is always good as I find too often that fruit juice drinks can be overpowered by sugars and sweeteners. This drink tasted like freshly made juice and it was full of flavour.
Crane’s premium cider with wonderful nuts turned out to be a hearty combination! The nuts were good quality although I found the portion sizes per pack to be very small especially in the pistachio pack. The Crane’s cider was sweet, a little too sweet for my taste but it was nice to try and it really doesn’t taste like cider (given that I’m not the biggest fan of cider this is a good thing).
Mrs Crumb’s Classic Madeleine were tasty but too sweet for me and that is purely because I have been cutting down on my sugar intake so I really can taste the sweetness in products more than I used to. That is not to say that it isn’t a lovely product, the cake was of good quality and as you can see it has been baked to perfection, it just wasn’t for me.
I love fortune cookies, they might actually be my favourite part of my Chinese meals so I was really excited to see these from Pechkeks in the box. Unfortunately as you can see it was broken before I had the pleasure of breaking it open myself but it was still cool. Tasted like a normal fortune cookie and the message was fun! This is a really cool product, I can definitely see myself buying a pack for a picnic or dinner party in the future.
These croissants were probably some of my favourite things in the box. Such good quality and tasty croissants which were perfectly kept in packs of two. Not too sweet, I heated them up gently in the oven and they tasted almost freshly backed. Will definitely keep an eye out for these in the future.
This Jack Daniel’s Honey Glaze barbeque sauce is a serious sauce! Thick and rich with that Jack Daniel’s flavour I wish I had a proper barbeque to cook the chicken wings on because it really was a taste sensation. I really enjoyed the authentic BBQ flavour with that whiskey kick, sticky, sweet and savoury it’s definitely worth trying.
This authentic fusilli bucati corti from Garo Falo was my other favourite product. Good quality pasta which went perfectly with my homemade tomato and chilli pasta sauce. The consistency of the pasta reflected the authenticity of the product and the quality of the ingredients used to make it. Thoroughly enjoyed this pasta and wish it was more widely available.
This great alternative to honey by Beloved was certainly unique. Tasting it on its own you can definitely get the date flavour but in a cup of tea it is a normal sweetener which is healthy and not over-powering. It is quite thick but I enjoyed trying this and would recommend that you give this a go if you’re looking for an alternative to sugar.
I really enjoyed these Kallo Milk Chocolate Corn Cakes, the sweetness of the chocolate was perfectly balanced by the subtle savoury essence of the corn cakes. A Healthy sweet treat which is light and tasty, really delicious.
