February #degustaboxuk

After my January Degustabox I was very excited to see what would be in store for us with my February one.  You do feel the thrill of anticipation when you see the trademark box and slowly work your way through the contents.  I make a point of not reading what was on its way so it’s more of a surprise!

It really is potluck but I think we hit the jackpot with this box; I was absolutely delighted with the contents.  It had lots of appetising snacks, ideal for my two hungry boys; the jelly, divine chocolate bars and Mr. Kipling oaty cakes went down very well!  Maybe next time I should open my Degustabox in secret so they do not claim the best bits!!!  It’s hard to be the official tester of the family when they only leave me their scraps at the very end!

The Nutribix wholegrain cereal (£3.79) was want the boys wanted for breakfast every morning, they usually attend a breakfast club but they were insistent they needed their morning Nutribix fix before they went off to school.  I like the fact they are getting something wholesome and filling that I know they still enjoy, so no coaxing reluctant eaters of a morning.  We will be adding this to our next food shop!

The Beloved Date bars I gave to my mum she is trying to be good now and these cereal bars had lots of great flavours whilst still being 100% natural with no added sugar!  The ideal option as my mum tries to wean herself back off cake and chocolate.

The Divine caramel bars will also be bought again, I managed to claim a couple of chunks before the boys quickly devoured the rest; the milk chocolate variety is heavenly.  Such an indulgent treat and just what I needed when the boys were running around like lunatics – ideally put the kettle on and sneak off to enjoy the WHOLE bar of this in peace!  It’s too nice to share.

My hubbie made light work of the Ritz Crisp & Thin potato snack and the London Crisp Company hand cooked crisps, eldest did grumble that he did not have a chance to sample these!  So we will have to keep an eye out and buy more when we are next shopping.  Yes I can safely say everyone in the family found something they enjoyed and if anything I am even more excited about what food and drink delights March might bring!

And remember the code BLDEG15 gives you a remarkable £6 discount off Degustabox.  Given we had Hartley’s – Jelly pot, Sarsons – Malt vinegar, Mr Kipling – Exceedingly good cakes, Beloved Dates – Date bars, Nutribix  – Nutribix Cereal, London Crisps Company– crisps, Divine – Caramel bars, James White Drinks – Carrot Juice, Vit Hit – drink, Britvic – J2O Spritz and Ritz – Crisp & Thin included this time, it is excellent value.
