Degustabox: March Easter Box

Easter may now well be over, but Degustabox sure did pull out the stops for their March/Easter Degustabox. I really loved this box as there was a really good variety of products in there that would pretty much set you up for the day!

Cirio Pasta Sauce
Cirio have bought out a brand new pasta sauce made with premium peeled plum tomatoes, that is made with 100% top Italian ingredients. We are all off as a family to Italy this year so this has certainly gotten us in the mood for all the delicious Italian food we are going to indulge in. I used my jar in two recipes, as it is a decent sized jar so I made a Bolognese sauce that was enough for two people and then an arabiatta sauce which covered two portions as well. It was so tasty, the tomato was so rich and delicious and made the sauces taste incredible, this is definitely one I will be buying again.

Smarties & Milkybar Mixed Mini Eggs
When I found these I was pretty much like omg, Smarties AND Milkybar in Mini Egg form?! You cannot get better than that. There was a suggested recipe on the back of the main card for some brownies, and we honestly had every intention of making them, but it kind of couldn't happen as we ate them before we had the chance to bake the brownies. I can assure you that they tasted delicious and I really hope they do them next year so we can buy them again!

Mr Lee's Noodles
I received the Dragon Fire Vegetables Flavour in my box, I had it for my lunch only last week as a quick low calorie but filling pot. Mr Lee's is actually an award-winning range, that consists of six noodles in a cup. They are all gluten free, low in sugar and low in saturated fats and calories. I know what you're thinking "oh there can't be anything good about this now!", but it was so packed full of flavour, it was a truly pleasant surprise. The ingredients have been freeze-dried to lock in the nutrients and flavour. In mine the mushrooms tasted just like mushrooms as well as the chilli in there too, as soon as the hot water hit it, it unlocked the flavour which was amazing!

Encona Carolina Reaper Chilli Sauce
I must say this looks like a hot sauce, and it is. The most ultimate heating flavour combination for this limited edition chilli sauce. It uses the scorching blend of the world's hottest chilli pepper, tomatoes and spices, and while I do love myself a bit of spice and chilli, it was even a struggle for me! Their suggestions were to use it as a marinade for a hot wing challenge or to pop a few drops into a dish that you want to add a bit of fire to..which is what I used it for, I actually added some to the arabiatta I made with the Cirio sauce!

Appy Kids Co Roald Dahl Fruit Drinks
Is it bad that I am now 25 years old but seeing Matilda on the juice carton was really exciting? With the pack of 3 mixed berries drinks, I've been popping one in my bag every few days to have at work as I'm trying to cut back on Diet Coke and used this as more of a treat instead... Each different flavoured drink had a different Roald Dahl book character on it. I can imagine for kids this will keep them encouraged to drink and keep hydrated while they are reading all of those classic books. These drinks are all really good for children with low calories, Vegan approved, no GMOs, gluten, added sugars or artificial preservatives in them. 

Hafervoll Flapjack Limited Lebkuchen
This is Hafervoll Flapjacks first 100% natural oat bars without added sugar, cheap ingredients or any other additives. They are handmade and then oven-baked and most importantly taste homemade. I am not a massive fan of flapjacks and I would be more likely to pick up a brownie, but I did want to give these a go, and since there were two in the box, Phil also had one. He likes flapjacks more than I do, and he really enjoyed it, it had cinnamon in and had more of a Festive flavour that reminded me of Christmas!

Shreddies Max Granola
These are delicious!! The Granola is a combination of crunch oat clusters with Shreddies pieces, honestly so delicious. It is made with 74% whole grain, high in fibre and also a good source of protein to help "maximise" your morning, see what they did there! I had mine in the morning for breakfast, obvs, it was such a quick and easy breakfast that I can grab really early before work and not have to put any thought into it! It also makes a good one to grab a handful for a late night snack and not feel guilty about it.

Ribena Pineapple & Passion Fruit
I love Ribena! I had no idea they did other flavours other than Blackcurrant though, so I was really excited to see their new Pineapple and Passion Fruit flavour they have added to their range that is loved by many. The squash has no added sugar and has less than 15 calories per 250ml serving. You can buy it in stores now and this squash tastes delicious, I am a big fan of these flavours anyway, and I don't find it as strong as the Blackcurrant which can sometimes be overpowering when you're having dinner or another meal.

Canny 100% Natural Chocolate Milk
This was a wonderful bonus surprise in this months box, for all this subscribers who answered Degustabox's mostly surveys, they got a bonus treat as a special thank you. This is an all natural chocolate milk which is refined sugar free and gluten free. I did drink this one chilled as suggested but I absolutely love heating up chocolate milk as an easy hot chocolate! It also makes a huge difference than just using hot chocolate powder, try it next time you have some chocolate milk!

Tenzing Natural Energy
This low calorie energy drink is actually kinda good for you! There is nothing artificial about this drink and Tenzing Natural Energy is made from six natural ingredients: Green Coffee, Guarana, Green Tea, Himalayan Rock Salt, Beet Sugar and Lemon Juice.

You can use the code PU9SR, to get your first box for only £7.99, I can assure you it is worth it!

*The box and its contents were kindly gifted by Degustabox, but as always, all views and opinions are my own.
