Welcome to my blog. A parenting lifestyle blog full of everyday normal and not so normal bits and bobs. Hope you enjoy your visit!


Another great month, bursting full of goodies - this box was a healthy theme with lots of new diverse healthy choices.

Degustabox is always full with new and exciting items, and if you like to experience old and new brands, food and drink that maybe you wouldn't normally buy, then this is the monthly subscription service for you. The monthly box is delivered directly to your home and the contents are always kept a secret. You will receive between 9 to 14 items, and it costs just £12.99, including delivery - I have a £3 discount code for new subscribers - see at the bottom of this post. 

I always enjoy receiving the box, opening and unpacking to see what goodies are inside and best of all, getting to try them. 

In this month's box please see below for each item included:

Magners: An Irish Cider brand, which has announced the launch of a new range of fruit flavours for its low-calorie cider, Magners Light. At 103 calories per bottle, Orchard Berries Light (ABV 4%) is the first new flavour to be released - and it tasted lovely, refreshing and fruity.

Little Miracles - Organic Tea: 2 bottles non-carbonated, refreshing juice, with organic tea and ginseng. Sweetened with agave,  less than 90 calories per bottle, and with no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners. I love these drinks; perfectly refreshing to drink in the morning or  lunch, especially when chilled.

Simplee Aloe - Aloe Vera Drink: An all natural, never from concentrate Aloe Vera drink; blended aloe with fresh grape juice and a squeeze of lemon to create an extraordinary tasting and healthy drink.

Haywards Piccalilli: A jar full of deliciously chunky vegetables in a tangy mustard sauce great for sandwiches, burgers and BBQs - This is why I love Degustabox, I would never have brought piccalilli myself, even though I have wondered what it tastes like, but thanks to Degustabox I finally got to taste and discover how great-tasting piccalilli is.

FINN CRISP - Original crispbread: 100% natural ingredients used, made from wholegrain, it is rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and as it is baked with sourdough, it’s low in fat with a distinctive tangy flavour. I use these for a cheesecake base or just as a snack with soft cheese.

Mornflake Top Porridge pots: I love porridge and often buy porridge pots, but I've never tried Mornflake before. They are the perfect way to start your morning, and with the additional Lyles Golden Syrup or Nutella portion, it is an added welcome extra that I have not seen with any other brands.

Clipper Tea -Green Tea with Lemon: A box of 10 tea bags of Clipper Fairtrade Green Tea with Lemon.
A light, crisp and highly refreshing green tea with a twist of lemony citrus zing. 

Kabuto Noodles: A combination of authentic Asian flavours and quality ingredients. This pot was packed full of flavour; perfect for a lunch snack.

Koko Dairy Free Original: An alternative to cow’s milk made with freshly pressed coconut milk. It contains fewer calories than skimmed, 0% cholesterol and is 100% allergen free. I liked this and would buy it again. It tastes much like cow's milk.

Alfa One Rice Bran Oil: Made with well-balanced and high in natural antioxidants such as Vitamin E and Gamma Oryzanol, a naturally occurring plant sterol which has been shown to reduce cholesterol absorption. 

I love receiving the Degustabox each month as it is both interesting and fun, and if you would like to order your first box then I have a £3.00 discount code for you: DC8QT
