July Degustabox - Summer Box

 We are always looking forward to our Degustabox delivery, which arrives every month and is full of foodie surprises. This monthly food and drink subscription box is an excellent way to discover products which have only just appeared in the shops or those which might have been around for while, but you haven't had a chance to try them yet.
Thanks to Degustabox, I have found new favourites to add to our shopping list, including some products which I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise.

Each time the box arrives, it's a total surprise. You get a good selection of foods and drinks.
If you haven't tried Degustabox subscription box yet and would like to have a go, I have a whopping £7 off discount from your first box (and you can unsubscribe any time) - just use a code 8EVI8 when you place an order.
What did we receive in July Degustabox? Let's have a peek.

Rowntree's Randoms 30% less sugar was selected product of the month. My sons love Randoms. I appreciate that they are free from artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners but I am always worried about the sugar content. Kudos to Rowntree's for reducing the sugar in their popular Randoms.

New reduced sugar Randoms are available in small 38g bags and bigger sharing bags.

Ryvita Thins Three Cheese is a new flavour in the varied range. They make a lovely snack for summer.

Topped with three cheeses - Cheddar, Regato and Emmental - they are crispy, thin and tasty.

Top them up with salsa, hummus or your favourite cream cheese for the ultimate snack.

OLOVES Healthy Olive Snacks come in small pouches, but pack a big flavour. They are seasoned with chilli, garlic and oregano. Low in calories, they are lovely to add to any salad or sandwich.

 Frylight Cooking Spray with Avocado Light is a 1kcal cooking spray. It resists the oxidation that cooking temperatures cause and is great for pan frying, woks and roasting.
I buy Frylight Olive oil to use as a cake release spray in cake tins, and was excited to try the latest addition to the range.

I was less enthusiastic about Weetabix. It's just I bought several promotional boxes recently to enter the codes to win Despicable Me 3 toys. Alas, we won nothing, and I am the only one in the family who eats Weetabix.
Weetabix Additions Coconut & Raisin is a new flavour, with fruit baked into every bite. I haven't tried it yet, as I'm slowly working through the other cereal boxes. Coconut flavour sounds good.

Merchant Gourmet Simply Cooked Red & White Quinoa is ready to use. It has been pre-cooked with a bit of water and olive oil. Add this nutty-flavoured mix to a leaf salad, it will make a good base for a variety of salad ingredients.

Maille is the classic brand, with over 270 years of history. Their range is extensive and varied. The name Maille is a guarantee of a great taste and quality.
Maille Dijon Original is a versatile condiment, you can use it in a variety of meals, from a simple sandwich to Dijon Steak sauce.

The Collective Kids Big Tub yoghurt is made with whole milk. You will receive a voucher to choose one of the flavours. We opted for Mango & Peach, both of these flavours work beautifully with dairy.
There are no bits and pips inside, to please any fussy eaters.

yogurts for children

There was another voucher from The Collective, to try one of Pro-Yo high protein yoghurt.
I love all things coconutty, so picked a Coconut with honey and vanilla yoghurt. It has 115kcal per pouch. This yoghurt has a smooth consistency, quite thick, and tastes more of vanilla than coconut (actually I would prefer more of a coconut flavour please).

Moving onto the drinks:
Thor Dry Apple Spritz Mint and Ginger are refreshing crisp sparkling drinks.
Lovely taste of crushed mint compliments apple spritz.
Each drink contains 69 kcal per bottle.

Blossom Hill Spritz is a fresh and fruity twist on wine. This product is included in the alcohol version of Degustabox. Best served chilled, this is a lovely drink for a long summer evening in the garden.

And finally, Crafted, a range of fruit juice drinks, blending unique combinations of fruit to create delicious flavours. There is no added sugar or sweeteners in any of the drinks. Serving provides you with 1 of your 5 a day. Available in four different blends.
