May 2019 DegustaboxUK- What’s In The Box?

June 28, 2019 No Comments

I’m a little bit late with the May 2019 DegustaboxUK, my mental health has taken a bit of a bashing since the beginning of May, so just had to take some ‘me time’ to recharge my batteries and what not.

So, if you don’t already know about DegustaboxUK and what it is, let me enlighten you!

It is a monthly subscription box that contains between 10-15 items each month, most of which are new to the market. You can read some of my reviews for previous boxes here. It costs £12.99 per month but you can find a discount at the end of the post which means you’ll pay just £7.99 for your first box!

The May 2019 DegustaboxUK theme was ‘Brunch & Afternoon Tea‘ and there were 3 versions of the box, depending on the preferences you chose when signing up.

So, let’s have a look at what was in the box!

May DegustaboxUK
Koko Dairy Free Super Milk – £1.99

This dairy-free milk has 9 vitamins and minerals and is suitable for toddlers to seniors. I’m not a milk lover really, only have it on cereal but this is a great alternative for anyone that is looking for dairy-free milk.

Depending on your chosen preferences you would have received either the Real Good Ketchup Smokey BBQ, Kuhne Gin Cornichons & Whiskey Cornichons, or the La Gioiosa Prosecco Brut DOC Treviso.

The Prosecco was lovely but I’m a sucker for prosecco anyway. My family really enjoyed the smokey BBQ sauce. We passed the cornichons onto a friend as it’s not something we would eat ourselves and they said they really enjoyed them; they had them with a charcuterie assortment platter.

Firefly Drinks Lemon, Lime & Ginger £1.55

This is a botanical drink and it’s made from fruit juice, still water and active botanicals. Plus they only contain naturally occurring sugars too. Vegan friendly with no colours or preservatives, this is a lovely refreshing drink, especially when served chilled.

Hellmann’s Vegan Mayo – £2.15

Now I don’t like Mayo at all but the rest of my family do and this went down a storm with them. Oh and if being Vegan friendly isn’t enough – it’s also gluten free too!

Oteas Black Tea & Apricot – £3.75

This was the Product of the Month for the May 2019 DegustaboxUK! It makes a really lovely tea and tastes great either hot or cold. It’s actually quite fruity and really light and refreshing.

MILKYBAR® MIXUPS – £0.65

Milkybar® has always been such a favourite of mine since I was a kid. I just love white chocolate and I wanted to love these Mixups so much BUT I just didn’t. I didn’t enjoy them at all. My son loved them though.

May DegustaboxUK
SHORE Seaweed Puffs – £1.19

You would have received 1 of 4 flavours in your box. I tried the sea salt & balsamic and when they first hit my tongue, I thought yeah, these are nice but then the taste changed and I really did not like them at all. Definitely not for me, but if you like these kind of snacks I am sure you would enjoy these too,

May DegustaboxUK
Indie Bay Snacks – Spelt Pretzel Bites with Rock Salt – £1.00

I’m very familiar with Indie Bay Snacks and I already LOVE these rock salt Spelt Pretzel Bites. They’re so crunchy and salty and extremely moreish! Less than 100 cals per pack, Vegan and a source of protein too.

May DegustaboxUK
Bravura Foods Free From Fellows Midget Gems – £1.99

You can’t really go wrong with Midget Gems! These are Vegan, & made without sugar, gluten, gelatine and dairy. Also egg free, soy free, GMO-free, free from artificial colours and flavours too. They are still very tasty and fruity though!

The last three items are the Daelmans Duo Stroopwafels and of course, it was lovely – both waffle & caramel filling. Then the SPLENDA sweet minis, which are a great alternative to sugar – each mini has the same sweetness as a teaspoon of sugar but no calories! Lastly is the Fruity Beauties Organic & Fairtrade Snack Bar. This was one of my favourite items in the May 2019 DegustaboxUK! It was bursting in flavour, full of fruity goodness. Plus, it counts as one of your 5 a day!

My Overall Thoughts On The May 2019 DegustaboxUK

This box was a bit of a mixed bag – or box – for me. Though in saying that there were only the Cornichons that the whole family wouldn’t eat. I am an incredibly picky eater though, and have a few food intolerance’s which makes it harder.

My favourites this month were the Fruity Beauties Organic & Fairtrade Snack Bar, which I loved! Also the La Gioiosa Prosecco Brut DOC Treviso, which I really enjoyed. My third choice is the Spelt Pretzel Bites by Indie Bay Snacks, just so crunchy, salty and downright delicious!

  • PR sample | It's a hot one today, so I have 2 fans on and windows open - though that kinda defeats the purpose of staying cool though as I'm letting in the warm air in I guess! 😎⁠⠀

  • You can blame @lipstick_powder_andpain for this little purchase from @superdrug! 😁
This beauty is the @makeuprevolution Courage Wild Animal Palette. I saw it & fell in love with it! 😍
It was a nice way to start the weekend as it arrived Saturday morning.
Speaking of the weekend, how has everyone’s weekend been? Do anything fun or has it been a weekend of relaxation! 😊

  • AD:PRgifted | We finally saw some sunshine today & this morning I wanted to wear a scent that was light, slightly floral yet also slightly fruity too!  So I reached for my By Invitation by @michaelbubleperfume 😊
It’s such a lovely fragrance with top notes of red fruits & bergamot, heart notes of rose, peony, lily of the valley & wild jasmine and leaving you with sandalwood-musk & vanilla praline! 😍
I’m usually not keen on ‘celebrity’ fragrances but this is just a really beautiful perfume. For me it’s also s perfect fragrance for summer. 🌞
Have you tried this fragrance? If not what’s your favourite scent to wear? 😊
