March 2019 DegustaboxUK: What’s In The Box?

April 2, 2019 No Comments

Can someone tell me how we are in April already? It’s going so quick this year that I’m already bringing you the March 2019 DegustaboxUK! This box is the Spring & Easter one and when I first opened I didn’t think there was as much in it as there usually is.

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

That said, there was actually 14 items in the March 2019 DegustaboxUK.  As I’m such a fussy eater there are normally things I don’t like but this box was a pretty good one for me.

Terry’s Chocolate Orange Minis Exploding Candy

I love orange chocolate, especially Terry’s Chocolate Orange, so this bag of mini-segments went down well. The exploding candy was not very strong so your mouth doesn’t get overwhelmed by the popping sensation.

Chum Fruit Bites Apple/Strawberry

March 2019 DegustaboxUKMarch 2019 DegustaboxUKMarch 2019 DegustaboxUK

I really liked these fruit bites. As you can see they are small triangles of slowly baked fruit. They are full of flavour and also 100% natural.  I think these would make a great snack. If you cannot have gluten, they are also gluten free, as well as Vegan, and Kosher.

Forest Feast Preda Fair Trade Mango/Chocolate Mango & Coconut Fruit Balls

March 2019 DegustaboxUKMarch 2019 DegustaboxUK

Both of these Forest Feast snacks went down a storm. I think they lasted a few minutes between the family! I don’t like coconut so I never tried the Chocolate Mango & Coconut Fruit Balls but apparently, there were full of flavour and really tasty! The dried Mango was really lovely too!

Willie’s Cacao Single Estate Chocolate

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

This I think was my favourite item out of the March 2019 DegustaboxUK. I wasn’t sure if I would like chocolate made with passion fruit but it was so good! The flavour of the passion fruit came through quite strongly but I actually liked it. The chocolate was creamy and it was just a delight to eat.

Ballymaloe Original Relish

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

This is definitely something I would not eat, so as usual the rest of the family tried it. They made some burgers and had the relish with it. All of them liked it and said it was packed full of flavour.

Moose Juice Passion Fruit

As this was zero sugar I tried this Moose Juice – can’t help but smile at the name! The passion fruit flavour was really nice and didn’t taste artificial at all. I’d say this was definitely one of the best energy drinks that I have tasted.

Weetabix On The Go Strawberry

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

My daughter likes these as we have had them in a previous box. She is terrible for skipping breakfast during the week when she’s at high school, so this is great as she can drink it on the way there. That way she will still start her school day with some energy.

Costa Signature Blend Coffee Ground For Cafetiere & Filter

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

One thing I am not is a coffee drinker – unless there is alcohol in it! I do like liqueur coffees. Andy’s eye’s lit up when he saw this bag of Costa coffee in the box. Even one of my sons loved it and I didn’t even think he liked coffee at all. Both of them really enjoyed it and it’s been making use of our cafetiere too.

Red Red Super Stews Black Eyed Beans & Tomato

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

This was really tasty & quite filling – ideal to have for lunch. It’s made with natural plant-based ingredients and inspired by Africa. There was an alternative flavour to this, Red Beans & Sweet Potato.

KIND Snacks Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

I don’t like nuts unless they are pistachios or cashews. Andy ate this and said that it was really nice and that you could taste the honey that bound the nuts together. These are also gluten-free and naturally high in protein.

Jubel Alpine Beer Cut With Peach

March 2019 DegustaboxUK

Gluten Free and Vegan, this beer is really nice. The peach adds that something extra to it and makes it a really enjoyable drink, especially when it’s been chilled.

Green & Black’s Praline & Truffle Bars

March 2019 DegustaboxUK March 2019 DegustaboxUK

Both of these were just sooooo good!  As I’ve gotten older I’ve come to really appreciate and enjoy dark chocolate. I wouldn’t eat it at all when I was younger. Out of the two bars I actually preferred the Truffle one the most. They are also made with ethically sourced chocolate. No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives either.


My Overall Thoughts on the March 2019 DegustaboxUK

Considering this was the Spring & Easter box I expected some actual Easter treats. I mean there were snacks and chocolates but nothing actually Easter themed. Having said that, this is my favourite box so far this year. There was also a good selection of different types of items too, – drinks, snacks, chocolate.

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub.

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
  • {gifted} I don't really like wearing foundation so this 'Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base' by @touchinsol_ldn is perfect for me. It's not only a great base to use under your makeup but also makes your skin glow all on its own! 😍⠀ ⠀ I happily wear this without feeling the need to put foundation on, or even a BB or CC cream. ⠀ ⠀ Of course, it is a honey & collagen-based primer with a host of natural extracts & vitamins, so no wonder it makes the skin look, radiant and, for want of a better word, bouncy! 🍯 ⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite primer/base to wear alone or under makeup?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #touchinsol_ldn #mmcl_ldn #primer #skincare #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #discoverunder20k #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #kskincare #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #theblogtribe ⁣#화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⁣ #abcommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #kbeauty #abskincare #abblogger #instablogger #kbeautyblogger #petitejoys #theeverygirl #touchinsol⠀
  • {prgifted} Perfect for #pinkwednesday #onwednesdayswewearpink are this @neekskinorganics vegan moisturiser and vegan cleanser. They have been a dream to use.
