April Degustabox review

The end of the month is nigh which means ... it's time for another Degustabox to arrive - always a moment that heralds much excitement as we all gather round to see what goodies are hiding inside this time.

We weren't disappointed, it's a really family friendly box this month and, as usual, I love the fact that it's a good mixture of well-known brands and total unknowns for us to discover. Here's what we found in this month's box :

2 bars of Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks' Chocolate - hmmm what should we do with these? I think some more Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes may be called for as they were so lovely.

Crabbie's Alcoholic Raspberry Ginger Beer - I love the sound of this one. It's currently chilling in the fridge and I'll let you know what I think once I've sampled it.

 Clearspring Miso Soup on the Go - we eat a lot of soup here at The Madhouse but have never tried miso soup before so we're looking forward to trying these out. Each individual serving sized pack just needs to be added to water so it's ideal as an instant lunch to keep in your drawer at work . Judging by how much we loved their Fruit On The Go pouches, I have high hopes for these.

 Lindt Lindor - yum, we already know these ones and love the smooth, velvety chocolate.

 Go Splash Blackcurrant Squash - We've already tried and reviewed (and loved) the Go Splash Apple so I'm envisioning lots more happy squeezing with this. It's amazingly concentrated so, hard as it is to believe, you'll get 30 glasses of drink out of this little bottle. I love the fact that it takes up less space in the kitchen cupboard and the kids love the taste. It's also sugar free.

 Cawston Press Rhubarb drink - another exciting drink that is chilling in the fridge waiting to be sampled so I'll have to report back once I've tried it. It sounds delicious - a blend of pressed apple and raspberry juice with sparkling water and added vitamin C.

 Keogh's Atlantic Sea Salt & Irish Cider Vinegar Crisps - We'd never heard of the Keogh's brand but the crisps got a thumbs up. They are "grown with love in Ireland" (you can even trace which field the potatoes came from and who cooked them on the pack, which is a nice touch), and they're gluten-free which is great news for any Coeliacs out there.

 Mornflake Superfast Raisin, Honey & Almond Granola, and Fruit & Nut Muesli - if (like me) you find it hard to find the time to grab a healthy breakfast before heading to work, these may be just the ticket. They contain milk powder so you just need to add cold water to get a tasty breakfast - you could throw one in your bag to eat at work, even if you don't have access to a fridge and fresh milk. They even come with a spoon. Could you get more convenient?!

McVities Jaffa Cake Mini Rolls Tropicool and Berry Burst - well, we love Jaffa Cakes and Mini Rolls but I wasn't sure what we'd think of these new mini rolls that are a mixture of both. The answer is, they're delicious and they're great for summer too because you can put them in the freezer for a refreshing sweet treat that shouldn't melt as quickly as regular chocolatey snacks.
