DegustaBox - June 2018: BBQ Selection

Friday, June 29, 2018
I absolutely love receiving the delicious Degustabox boxes every month (thanks so much to the incredibly lovely people over at DegustaBox) and this months box is no different! I love the mystery of the boxes and how jam packed they are with so many wonderful and yummy cooking ingredients, drinks and snacks. If you use the code: KVAA2 at the checkout you can get your box for only £7.99 which is an amazing deal considering the value of each box.

*DegustaBox - June 2018 
Sometimes the boxes are themed and last months box was based around the World Cup but this months is all about BBQ snacks and sharing products as well as some items that would be perfect for a summer picnic or road trip. There are thirteen items within this box with brands ranging from The Jelly Bean Factory, Fry Light, Orangina, Idahoan and many more. I think this months box has a great range of items from small snacks and sparkling drinks to sauces, cooking ingredients and sharing snacks which will be perfect for summer.
*Brioche Pasquier Pains Au Lait (£1.75)
Let's start with one of my favourite food groups, carbs! We've received quite a few French baked goods over the past couple of months and I'm definitely not complaining as they've been some of my favourite items and these are no different. They are brioche rolls which are naturally delicious and are so versatile - the back of the packet has some very creative and delicious ideas such as filling your brioche rolls with macaroni cheese *drools*.

*Idahoan Gratin Bake (£2.30)
Next up is another very carb heavy item and another brand I've tried a few times within these boxes. I really love the instant mash from this brand (I received some in a DegustaBox and I've bought it myself since) so I was interested to try something else from them. Sadly, I wasn't that much of a fan of this item as it was quite gloopy and not very flavourful but I would definitely purchase the mash again.
*Fry Light Avocado Oil (£2.99)
I received the coconut oil version of this cooking oil spray in a previous DegustaBox and I'm still using it pretty much every single day. I love these spray oils as it means that you only use a very small amount, it's easy to control and they're healthier for you which is something that's very important to me. I do love the coconut oil version and I'm sure I'll like this one too!

*Capiscana Cook Sauces (£1.99 each)
The DegustaBox product of the month is the Capiscana Cook Sauces - I received two in my box. I received the cuban chilli and lime and Brazilian chilli and coconut cooking sauces. They're both suitable for vegetarians, gluten free and they don't contain artificial colours or flavourings. Both flavour options are both described as hot so with me being a wimp when it comes it spices, I think I'll pass these on to someone who's tastebuds can handle it.
*Rosie's Pig Raspberry Roller (£2)
Next up is one of the uniquely packaging and designed items in the box as it's a can of sparkling cloudy dinar with raspberry juice and cucumber. I absolutely love the packaging of this product and while I don't tend to drink alcohol very often, I will be drinking this on a summer road trip or picnic soon.

*Orangina (£1.20 each)
As with a couple of brands within the box, this one has made an appearance in a previous DegustaBox. Orangina is a brand that I do like and I'm happy to receive a couple of bottles within this months box. I have the original and light versions so they'd be great for a summer picnic to share - I should hopefully be going on a short summer road trip and weekend away in August (I can't wait).

*No & More Raspberry and Blueberry Spring Water (£1.29)
Sometimes there are no drinks within the boxes but this month has featured quite a few and the penultimate drink is a flavoured spring water from No & More. The water doesn't contain sugar, sweeteners or preservatives. It's flavoured with blueberry (boo) and raspberry and the latter is one of my favourite ever flavours so I think I'll like this drink!
*Peckish BBQ Rice Crackers Multi-Pack (£1.79)
Now onto the snacks, the first is a large sharing multi-pack bag of smokey BBQ flavoured rice crackers. I love trying healthier versions of crisps so these are perfect! They are baked and not fried, made with rice bran oil and they're gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. I do love smokey, BBQ flavoured snacks and these tick all of the boxes for me. I've finished all of these mini packets now as they are so delicious!

*Mighty Fine Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar (£1)
I do love snacking but this one is a little different, it's salted caramel and milk chocolate covered honeycomb bar. I do love honeycomb flavours and I have tried this bar before in another subscription box so I know that I like it, even though it's very chewy/sticky.
*Great British Biscotti Co (£1.30)
The next item is a snack I haven't tried before, I don't think, and it's biscotti. Biscotti is a dry Italian biscuit and this one contains chocolate, cranberries and pistachios within a buttery biscuit. I love the packaging and while I like the flavours, it just isn't for me - I'm not a fan of the texture but I'm sure a lot of people will love it.

*The Jelly Bean Factory (£1.25)
The penultimate item is my favourite item from the box as the flavours are so nice, I love chewy sweets and they are suitable for vegetarians! This snack is fair-trade, contains 100% natural flavours and vegetarian society approved. There are 36 flavours within the gourmet box but you don't get all of the flavours as I had quite a lot of repeats. I didn't like the watermelon, Pina colada or coconut flavours but I did love the lemon, strawberry and passion fruit flavours. I'll definitely buy their products in the future.
*Fyre Fruit Drinks 
Last but not least is the non-alcoholic box drink option which are sparkling fruit drinks. I love the packaging for these drinks, they are all natural and while they only have two flavours so far, they are delicious. I liked the lemon and ginger drink but my favourite has to be the blueberry, blackcurrant, peppers and chilli flavoured drink which sounds awful but it's actually yummy and sweet!

Overall, I loved this month box as I liked last months box too. My favourite items have to include the rice crackers, cider, brioche and the jelly bean sweets. Don't forget to use the code: KVAA2 to get your box for only £7.99 which is great value consisting the number and value of the items included in the boxes each month!

What do you think of the June DegustaBox? Have you tried any of these snacks or drinks?
