Picnic Degustabox

Grab your picnic rug, pack up a cooler bag and treat yourself to a summer feast in the great outdoors or just in your garden.
Picnic is the theme of the latest Degustabox.

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 the July'19 Degustabox? Let's have a look.

flatbreads for sandwiches

As it happened, the food box arrived just before our holidays, and I have made a few quick sandwiches to take with us on the train.
My younger son loved them, and I'm hoping to buy them, when I visit Sainsbury's next time.
These flatbreads are a great addition to any picnic.
