July has been another good month for the Degustabox. We have been trying out a range of drinks again, which is a real treat in these summer months because there is always something tasty and refreshing in the fridge. On the soft drinks front there’s been Newton’s Appl Fizzics which is a refreshing blend of sparkling water and apple juice. I’ve taken the Little Miracles drinks out with us on picnics and long, hot car drives and they have been very pleasant to drink. In fact I love the fact that there are no artificial nasties and I like that they have organic ingredients too. The Lambrini was the perfect drink to share with friends on a long summer evening. It’s alcoholic, but it’s not a high alcohol content which is great for summer days when you could get dehydrated.
The Weetabix drinks are designed to be an easy way to have breakfast on the go. It’s basically all the goodness of a breakfast cereal in a bottle. I found the chocolate version a bit much for first thing, but I think that’s because I prefer a savoury breakfast. I think this is just the thing for me to drink before we leave for the airport when we go on our holiday later this month. I need to have something before I drive, but we plan to have a proper meal at the airport.
Food wise we have the Tasty Little Numbers to try. These are perfect for filling a lunch time gap or having a side dish. I love that they are easy to add up on the calories front too as that helps when you are keeping an eye on your weight. Taking The Pea was a new one for us. It’s a new healthy snack based on flavoured peas. They are a perfect lunch box size and are high in fibre, but low in fat. Say Yes To No is a very simple product. It doesn’t set out lots of ambitious promises, but has a refreshing take on pack design. It’s a tasty snack too, so it just shows you don’t need all the marketing lies. Fru Snax are another healthy snack which are perfect for a lunch box or even popping in your handbag.
Lots of lovely things to try in July’s Degustabox. Really looking forward to seeing what’s in the August box.
