The month of June brings us another Degusta Box. Another box filled with surprises that I can't wait to try out and eat. This month, the theme is Summer & BBQ.


Let's see what goodies there are in the box...

Let's start with our Mystery Product - Lentil, Corn, Pea and Black bean Tortillas - 80p.

This product has not yet hit supermarket shelves. Healthier than normal tortillas, these are made with the above ingredients and pressed into light tortillas and seasoned with sea salt. We had these with some Mexican salsa and they were AMAZING! We can't wait until this product is on the market!!

Newman's Own Italian Dressing - £1.75

We dressed a simple side salad with this dressing. You can really taste the olive oil in the dressing and it has just the right amount of tartness. This is Newman's Own original Italian dressing with red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.

Kolibri Botanical Drinks Strawberry & Basil / Cardamom & Chilli - £3.75

We received both flavours. This is an award winning, luxury and low sugar drink. The drink itself is lightly sparkling and botanical flavoured. We love that this is a bespoke drink as you can adjust the sweetness yourself. This drink is made in Britain with all natural ingredients and no artificial sweeteners. It is non alcoholic.

Hellman's Chilli Mayonnaise fired by Tabasco - £1.99

The original Hellman's mayonnaise with Tabasco pepper sauce. It is available in most major supermarkets.

Garbanzo Snacks Bombay Twist/Thai Sweet Chilli/Tomato Salsa - £2.29

We received all three flavours. These snacks were perfect for snacking and we liked every flavour but the best was the Thai Sweet Chilli. These are a new range of vegan snacks made from chickpea, pumpkin seeds and caramelised red onion. Ingredients are natural, gluten free with no artificial preservatives.

SavourSmiths Truffle and Rosemary - £1.50

Fresh rosemary is combined with black truffle to make these crisps. We liked the flavour and the crisps were cooked just right but we probably wouldn't buy these again for £1.50 a packet.

DRGN Turmeric Superdrink - £1.85

This Asian fusion drink is a natural energy and wellness drink without the caffeine. This drink is packed with superfoods, vitamins and minerals. Found this drink quite strong and didn't really like the taste of it.

The Free From Kitchen Co Free From Choc Bar / Caramel Chocolate Slab - £1.50 / £2.50

These chocolates are vegan, gluten and wheat free perfect for those following a diet due to lifestyle or medical reasons. We really liked both chocolate flavours but the caramel slab tasted really good.

Lucozade Energy Watermelon and Strawberry Cooler - £1.20

This flavour is the latest addition to the Lucozade range. This flavour tasted great and the light watermelon flavour is perfect for the summer. We would buy this flavour again.

TREK Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt protein nut bars (3x40g) - £2.50

These bars are made with roasted peanut and whole almonds and are flavoured with dark chocolate and sea salt. These bars are really tasty and great for when we needed pick-me-up midday. We would definitely buy these again.

Mavericks Healthier Snacks for Kids - 75p

Mavericks have created healthy snacks for children. We received the poppin' corn and smart cookies. These would be a good snack idea for little ones.

We also received Rowntree's Random's Sharing Bag - £1.50 and Smith & Sinclair's alcoholic gummies but as it contains gelatine and alcohol, we did not try.

Disclaimer - Thank you Degustabox for sending us Degustabox in exchange for a review. I was sent this box for an unbiased review and not told or paid to write a positive review. All the opinions are my own.
Being a Deguatsabox brand ambassador I get to try all the products (including variation from alcohol/ non-alcohol boxes and products that are only included in some variations of the box), unlike regular subscribers who will receive either one or the other. I received vegetarian and non-vegetarian and alcoholic drinks in this box, but being a Hindu vegetarian I do not consume any egg, meat or fish products.
