March Degusta Box (Unboxing @DegustaboxUK) By @Cinabar

It is that time again, when the lovely folk from Degusta Box send round a pack of goodies for unboxing. I always love the surprise element with their boxes, and couldn't wait to see what was tucked away inside.

This month the box was quite heavy, which led me to think there might be a few drinks inside, and I was right about this. There were other goodies too, so first up I found Mr Lee's Hong Kong Street Beef. This is an instant noodle product, where you add hot water to get a simple noodle lunch.  this could easily be spiced up with a splash of the new Encona Limited Edition Chilli Sauce. This is Encona's hottest sauce, and looks pretty scary. Not sure I'd be brave enough to eat it neat, but I'm sure it can spice up any number of sauces.

As this is the Easter box, there are some sweet treats too. There are some Mini Eggs from Nestle, mixing the filling with either Smarties chocolate or Milkybar. These eggs will not last long here at Foodstuff Finds, and will be excellent for munching on while watching an Easter film.
There is also an interesting looking flapjack from Hapervoll, which is also a Limited Edition. It looks fun and spicy, and is flavoured with cinnamon and cloves, which are similar to Hot Cross bun flavours really.

I'm always pleased when my Degusta box has something nice for breakfast, and this box is no disappointment. The box contains the new cereal from Shreddies; Max Granola. These are a good sauce of protein so very much on trend for foodies.

Quite by lucky coincidence there was a jar of Cirio tomatoes. I'm making pasta sauce this week so this is a welcome addition in the box. It is made with 100% pure tomatoes, and I always find the Cirio  products to be have particularly good flavour and a nice level of sweetness.

As predicted earlier there are quite a few drinks in this box, and they start with a couple of school ground favourites. We have a chocolate milkshake from the Canny company. This is a nice twist on the drink though as it has no added sugar, and is all natural. There are also some fruit cartons, like the one I used to take in my lunch box to school. These are mixed berries flavour and the cartons are decorated with Roald Dahl's favourite Matilda.

On a bit more of a grown up twist, there is also an energy drink. I'll be honest this is the sort of thing I'd normally pick up, but this one does look interesting. It is all natural and made by Tenzing, the caffeine even comes from green coffee beans.

Last but by no means least is this fab bottle of Ribena, that I can't wait to try. It is flavoured with Pineapple and Passion Fruit, and I do love the tropical tastes. This will come in very handy over Easter and I can't wait to give it the taste test.
I've really enjoyed this month box from Degusta, and I am looking forward to trying all the new products.
