Degustabox Review – May 2021

Almost half the year is over and can’t believe how time is flying! Only thing that I am waiting these days is the travel restrictions to ease for me to go on holidays, just like pre-covid times. Whilst, the world awaits for such times to come back, at least one thing is going good. This is, Degustabox! Super pleased with un-interrupted supply of degustabox every month. Here is what I found in May month’s deguatsbox.

Detailed review of May 2021 Degustabox


May month’s degusta box was all about “Outdoor and BBQ”.

Following is the breakdown of the contents of degusta box.

Whitworths Protein by Nature Mexican Spicy Grains


These were barley grains with little bit of spice, sort of mexican flavours. Portion size was ok, and is vegan, easy to make to by simply microwave. Having said that, I felt craving for more spice. The pack costs £2.00 and worth a try for those who love barley grains.

Refreshing sparkling lemon drink! What more do I need on a hot day? This drink does not have any added sugar and is less than 75K, its a winner in my view. Available at Abel & Co., Amazon and Ocado and costs £1.50.

Graze Smoky Barbecue Crunch

Graze is such a common name in UK. I love graze munchies. This one with bbq flavour was not any exception. Munch this at any time, and with not so many calories, it does not hurt much. One small punnet costs £1.00 or can get 104g bag for £2.99

Knorr Seasonings

Little did I knew that Knorr do seasonings too. Finding a small bottle of rosemary & onion seasoning in the degusta box was sweet little surprise. I can use it on my salad and soup. Best part is that its all veg and suits me so well. Worth checking out in your next grocery shopping.
