May Degustabox

May Degustabox
After last month's delicious box was such a sucess I was really excited to see what I received in this months Degustabox. This month's box is packed with lots of Spring, healthy goodies that are perfect for eating on a hot sunny day that's if we get one. I absolutely love receiving these boxes every month and to come across some yummy snacks I've not even heard of before!
Kallo Rice Cakes
Kallo Belgian Milk Chocolate Corn Cakes / £1.29
I am a massive fan of rice cakes I think they are such a guilt-free snack to have on-the-go or part of a balanced diet. At only 78 calories per corn cake, these make a delicious snack that satisfies any chocolate craving. You can eat these as they are, with some fruit or even drizzle some honey or whipped cream on them! I have never tried the corn cakes but they taste so good and light! They did leave me incredibly thirsty though and I'd prefer if they came in packs of 2/3 for on-the-go like the yogurt cakes do.

Kallo Yogurt Coated Rice Cakes / £1.69
I always have a pack of these in my cupboard or in my bag as I am obsessed with them. These scrumptious rice cakes are a great alternative to a biscuit. Made with wholegrain brown rice and coated in delicious yogurt. I definitely think if you want an alternative to biscuits or chocolate that you should try these.
Pasquier Croissants
Brioche Pasquier Croissants / £1.80
This is Degustabox's product of the month and it's definitely a good choice! A traditional French breakfast wouldn't be the same without an all butter croissant. These are free from preservatives, hydrogenated fats and artificial colours. I like to heat these up for 2-3 minutes and add butter or even bacon to get me through the morning.
Beloved Nectar
Beloved Dates Nectar / £3.50
Gluten, wheat and dairy free, this unique Date Nectar is 100% made from pure dates and absolutely nothing else. Great as a topping on porridge, pancakes or as an alternative to sugar in home baking. I have porridge every morning and I definitely think things like this can really make it taste less bland. I can't wait to try this with porridge and a sprinkle of chia seeds.
Pechkeks fortune cookies
Pechkeks Fortune Cookies / 2x £1.00
These black cookies are crude, truthful and direct - the glimpse into the future, brutally honest and pessimistic. So you're left with no choice but to take them as a sense of humour. I gave one of these to my boyfriend and I opened the other and they definitely were amusing to read, I think mine said something about having bad luck. I used to sadly keep all of my good fortune cookies in the hope they'd come true!
Get Fruity
Get Fruity / 1x £1.00
Get Fruity is an award-winning fruit and oat bar that has a high percentage of the named fruit making it authentically fruity. These bars contain gluten free oats & virgin coconut oil with no added refine sugars, produced on a nut free side and is 100% natural. To be honest this lived less than 2 hours in my cupboard I had this as an afternoon snack one evening. At first I wasn't sure I liked the taste, but after awhile I got used to it and it reminded me of the taste of a flapjack. These are quite a nice snack to quickly eat or have in your bag.
Wonderful company
The Wonderful Company Pistachios & Almonds / 2x 90p
Not the biggest of fans of pistachios purely because they're quite fiddly to get out the shell, but I do like almonds. I think these mixed together in a little pot are great to have on-the-go. I have already popped some almonds into my tiny lunchbox for when I am on the bus to work or on my break. Nuts are so filling and great as a balanced diet as long as you don't eat loads!
Cranes Alcoholic Drink / 2x £1.90
In original cranberry and strawberry/kiwi these two drinks sounded so refreshing and amazing in my head, but once I saw they were alcoholic I decided to give them another home. I think these chilled in a glass filled with ice whilst you are relaxing in the sun would be perfect.
Jack Daniels Honey BBQ Glaze
Jack Daniels Honey Barbecue Glaze / £1.99
This barbecue glaze is infused with the soft flavours of the popular Jack Daniels Tennesse Honey Liquer, giving the glaze a hint of honey and a delcious, smooth flavour. Create luxuriously sticky, sweet ribs and glistening chicken wings or simple use a dip for wedges or veggies. As delicious as this sounds I must admit I cannot bare the taste of barbecue but I know my brother would absolutely loved this sprinkled on spare ribs. I think this would be so handy to have if you are having a BBQ or a garden party in the summer.
Garafalo Pasta
Garafalo Pasta / £1.99
I always think having a bag of pasta in the cupboard is a great quick meal to make after a long day at work. Garafalo is a corkscrew shaped pasta that is made from only high quality durum wheat. This pasta will come in so handy on those evenings I haven't had time to cook or would go lovely with some tuna as a healthy lunch.
Pomegreat Juice / £1.49
Another great refreshing drink to have on a warm sunny day, Pomegreat harvest pomegranates when they are deep ruby red and bursting with flavour. I had high hopes of this tasting as amazing as the fruit, but unfortunately I didn't like the taste. It tasted too bland and very sweet - nothing like the actual fruit which is a shame.

Overall I really enjoyed this month's box as it was full of great healthy snacks for on-the-go and even some great breakfasts. My favourite is definitely the rice cakes I find these so yummy and more-some which makes me feel less guilty of having!

I would really recommend people who enjoy food and are wanting to try new brands out to give this box a try. Who doesn't love the element of surprise especially with food?! It is like Christmas every month. You always come across some amazing brands and try some yummy recipes too!
