REVIEW: March Degustabox

Firstly, apologies for this being a bit late - due to the birth of our beautiful daughter I've been pretty busy in the past month, so not had the time to get this post written up. Nevertheless it's here now...

Ok, so I thought the February Degustabox was good but the March box is my absolute favourite so far (and my husbands too). If you want some midweek excitement and you love food, then receiving a Degustabox through the post is just what you need. Opening the box and exploring its contents is so much fun, especially when it's filled with goodies you've wanted to try or never seen before! 
 
Maynards Sour Patch Kids - £1
My husband is the biggest sweet lover I've ever met, he just loves anything high in sugar and if it's mixed with a sour kick then even better. These sweets were snapped up by him and begrudgingly shared with me. They are DELICIOUS. They have that mouth watering sour effect, making you just want more!
 
Bassetts Jelly Babies Berry Mix - £1.48
I'll give you a guess who had their eyes on these too?! I'm actually not such a Jelly Babies fan, but these sweets contain fruit juice, as well as natural colours and flavours. This resulted in them not being tainted by a fake 'berry' flavour, instead they were actually pretty moreish. 
 
 Green Tea with Mandarin and Ginseng
I'm not really into these green tea cold drinks, though I know how popular they are. Green tea has numerous benefits for our bodies and being able to drink it cold in various flavours can make it more edible. I know a lot of people who want to drink green tea for it's goodness but can't stomach the hot version. This drink is perfect for you if you're one of these people!
 
Crabbie's Fruits Black Cherry and Raspberry & Rhubarb - £1.50 each
As I'm only just not pregnant I haven't been able to try these, but they are in the fridge waiting patiently. I love these kind of drinks over the summer months - ice cold, sunny garden and great friends - a winning mix. 
 
Juice Burst Skinny Mango & Lime and Juice Burst Cranberry - £1.25 each
These have been a lovely change from the mass amount of water I've been drinking recently. Since being heavily pregnant I've found that drinking bubbles hasn't agreed with me, so I've been avoiding them. This has basically meant all I've drank is water, which I do love but isn't particularly exciting. These juice drinks are flat and flavoursome - perfect. 
 
Pasquier Baked Bread Bites in Bacon Flavour - £0.50 each
I got seriously excited when I saw these - strangely enough one of my favourite flavours for crisps is smokey bacon. I say strangely enough because I'm a vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life! However some smokey bacon crisps actually have meat in, meaning I can't have them. These little crouton goodies ARE vegetarian and very tasty!
 
Natvia  Sweetener - £2
I actually reviewed this product on my blog back in March last year, it's fantastic. A zero calorie sweetener that has the consistency of sugar and is 100% natural! What's there not to like?
 
Kents Kitchen Posh Noodles Spicy Szechuan - £1.75
An instant noodle pot that makes lunch easy and flavoursome. At only 222 calories it's also good for anyone watching what they're eating, I always find noodles very filling!
 
Lindt Lindor x2 - £2 each
With Easter just around the corner it wouldn't have been right for there not to have been something 'Eastery' in the March Degustabox. These mini Easter eggs are in white, milk and dark chocolate with the smooth filling Lindt Lindor is so well known for. Chocolate heaven. 
 
Original Bayrische BBQUE Barbecue Sauce - £3.99
Firstly, I love the packaging of this product - so sleek, stylish and one to put on the condiments shelf proudly. I haven't tried this yet but it smells divine. I'm thinking of using it in a vegetarian burger, with halloumi kebabs or in a fajita - or maybe just save it for BBQ season. 
 
Jordans Lighter Granola in Strawberry and Blueberry - £3.69
This came at the most perfect time, as I'd been really fancying granola with yogurt and fresh fruit for a couple of weeks. So on my next trip to the supermarket I bought some cherry yogurt, fresh strawberries and blueberries. My breakfast since has consisted of this granola with a splash of milk, cherry yogurt and fresh fruit - a breakfast perfect for spring time.
