This month was slightly different for Degustabox as they had two separate boxes, one with alcoholic drinks and one without. I have the products from both boxes to show you so here's a look at all the new goodies inside the July Degustabox:
ZEO Drinks: I love that Degustabox included all three varieties of ZEO; peach and grapefruit Burst, citrus Crush, and Lime Zest. These drinks have a love them or hate them type of flavour. They certainly make a change from the usual sugary fizzy drinks as these are not very sweet at all. They have a tingly, dry edge and light fruity, almost botanical, flavours that I found quite refreshing.
Portlebay Popcorn: I've been wanting to try the Portlebay Popcorn range for ages so I was delighted to find three different flavours in the Degustabox; the original sweet and salty Kracklecorn, Chilli & Lime, and Crispy Bacon & Maple Syrup. The individual snack sizes are very useful and I can't wait to give them a taste test this weekend!
Dr Oetker Eton Mess & Violet Crystals: These are edible decorations which not only add extra colour to bakes but extra flavour too! I'm especially looking forward to making some Eton Mess inspired cupcakes using the Eton Mess flavoured sprinkles. Degustabox have definitely got something going on with Dr. Oetker because the last two boxes have also included new items from the Dr. Oetker range - great for anyone who's into baking - like me! Anyone else looking forward to GBBO returning next week as much as me?
The Berry Company: I hadn't heard of The Berry Company before but apparently they are one of Europe's fastest growing drinks brands with a range of nutritious fruit juices and fruit flavoured teas. I love trying out new brands and this White Tea with Peach drink sounds like an interesting mix.
Frank Honest Snacking: This Blueberry & Chocolate Snack Bar sounds so good. The range is made with 100% natural ingredients and all their bars are free from gluten, wheat, nut, dairy and refined sugar. They're available in lots of delicious sounding flavours; Orange, Oat & Double Chocolate, Strawberry & Chocolate, and Blueberry & Chocolate.
Maggi So Juicy: I've tried the Maggi range before (see review here and here) and they always give great results for family meals. I like having a few sachets in the cupboard for those days when I'm pushed for time. This So Juicy Oriental Soy & Garlic Chicken is a new flavour to me and comes with a special cooking bag that helps lock in all the juices whilst cooking.
Maggi So Baked: I also received further sachets from the Maggi So Baked range. These are designed to make baked recipes and come in a variety of options. I received Chicken & Leek Potato Bake, Piri Piri Chicken, and Beef & Ale Casserole. These will all come in very useful for me and I'll definitely be using them for midweek meals.
Green & Black's Organic Dark Chocolate Lemon: You can't really go wrong with chocolate and luckily Degustabox always include a sweet treat in their boxes. I've reviewed this Green & Black's chocolate bar before (see here) and it's a lovely combination of tangy lemon flavour with a sweetly rich dark chocolate.
Hornsby's Blueberry Cider: These were included in the alcoholic version of this month's Degustabox. Hornsby's cider bottles were also included in the May Degustabox (in different flavours), and even though I don't drink cider I'm really intrigued by this blueberry flavoured version.
Overall, I was extremely happy with this months Degustabox, it had a good mix of new products, with quite a few new brands to me too (Zeo, Frank, The Berry Company, Portlebay), aswell as the more well established brands (Dr. Oetker, Maggi). If you received the July Degustabox then I'd love to know what you thought of it in the comments below!
