Degustabox June

If you haven't heard of Degustabox its a monthly subscription box that delivers 9-14 surprise products, many of the products are new to the market so you get to try them first. As always I will start my post with my YouTube unboxing video.

This months Degustabox had a picnic theme and contained lots of great items that would be perfect for this lovely weather we have been having. This months box contained 12 items from 10 different brands.
Inside this month are 2 alcohol options, the first I have never heard of and was a Icycl vodka fruit flavoured icepop. These would be perfect for an evening treat at the end of a hot day. Available in 3 flavours and priced at £2.50 I would definitely buy them again. I am familiar with the Rekorderlig brand and have had bottles in 2 previous boxes. I really like the strawberry and lime flavour its really rrefreshing, available in a 4 pack costing £1.49.
There are also 2 soft drink options, the Zeo drink is again another brand I have had in a previous box, these are available in 4 delicious flavours. There are only 30 calories per bottle and they cost just £1.29 per bottle. The second soft drink option I haven't tried before, but I have heard lots about the benefits of drinking coconut water. The Vybe juice is priced at £1.89 per bottle, but it just didn't do it for me, I didn't like the taste. My hubby loved it though and he would definitely buy it again.
We love the brioche pasquier range and buy it regularly, the childrens favourites are the choc chip brioche, the are great for chucking in your bag or lunches. I prefer the chocolate filled brioche, they offer a tasty direct chocolate hit! In packs of 6 for only £1.70 they are great.
I really liked the snacking options for adults in this box and all 3 items are ones that I haven't tried before! The Melba multi grain thins are £1.39 and contain 10 individually portioned packs, they are great with cottage cheese or tuna on and so much lower fat than bread. I have heard of the Kallo range but never tried it and we received some sea salt and vinegar corn & rice snacks (70p) and some milk chocolate rice cake thins (£1.69) I really enjoyed both, especially the rice thins, the crunchy caramel pieces are delicious. I will be buying both of these items again.
The last 2 items in the box are again both items I haven't heard of before and eager to try. The coconom organic coconut sugar looks like it will be a great baking alternative, priced at £3.25 it is a little in the expensive side but these alternatives usually are. The last item was some Love chin chin snack priced at £1.00. The packet said crunches like a biscuit, tastes like cake and they really did! I loved the cinnamon flavour and would get them again.
I loved this months box and it came just right in time for the school holidays. If you want to try Degustabox you can get £3 off your first box by using code TTIMB at the checkout.
