Summer in the July Degustabox
Summer is here!! We've finally seen some of that elusive British sun, and more heat than us Brits can handle in one go.
This month's Degustabox* arrived jam packed of goodness with a distinctive summer feel.
As always the box is filled with a mix of well known and lesser-known brands, with a mix of food and drinks. I love the new products from the larger brands and the smaller more unique items from newer businesses.
Sarson's Balsamic Vinegar
A staple in our house as Dann makes a mean salad dressing from scratch which usually includes Balsamic Vinegar.
Rowntree's Fruit Pastilles Infusions
A favourite of mine and great for a movie session on the slightly cooler nights in. These are a blend of orange & grapefruit, raspberry & pomegranate and apple & elderflower, making for a unique bag of naughtiness.
Aloe Vera based drinks for a healthy and refreshing bottle, and they are all natural and organic.
One of Dann's favourite brands, this Swiss style Muesli from Jordans makes for a great start for the day.
Sparkling water with a subtle flavour and a great chilled fizz - perfect for a hot summers day
Q Cucumber Drinks
Another sparkling water in a can with a hint of cucumber, which I bet would be amazing with gin, and is so refreshing on it's own too.
itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins
The new vegetable crisp and the perfect Asian snack. They're also packed with vitamins and good stuff.They're recommended on their own, or topped with cream cheese & avocado or smoked salmon!! Yum!!
A personal favourite - I LOVE gherkins! And summer is definitely the season for them, roll on the burgers!
Bahlsen Choco Leibniz
Cute mini chocolate biscuit snacks, small enough for lunchboxes and a not too naughty treat.
Made in Britain these crisps are delicious - we received the Chorizo flavour and they were gone before you could say 'delicious'!!
Dann had to have this as it's not for pregnant or breastfeeding ladies, but I'm told it's great and really refreshing.
This pineapple, coconut and lime juice drink is basically an alcohol-free Pina Colada! It's so so good!
Fruit and chocolate. Naughty and nice. You just need to try them.
