I often look at new things and want to try them yet the same foods always end up in my trolley weekly.
Degustabox is a monthly subscription box where you are sent between 10 and 12 items all boxed up to try out.

May was my first time receiving on of these boxes so I was unsure what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised.
You receive an email and a text telling you when your box will arrive – fantastic service, you are even given a time slot too.
This month’s box was rammed with goodie, most of which I liked or loved and a few I was a little unsure of.
Garofalo produces a whopping 76 different shapes of pasta, including gluten free, organic whole wheat and a range of fun kids pastas. Produced since 1789 in Gragnano near Naples and made from the finest robust drum wheat.
I hadn’t tried this brand before and I really liked it, it took a little longer to cook than I’m used to but the large tube meant the filling stuck inside the tubes nicely – we used with a Bolognese sauce.
Sparkling apple juice in a can, made without preservatives, additives or artificial sweeteners. A very refreshing drink – great for the summer.
Taylors Of Harrogate:
Blackberry and Elderflower tea – not really my (excuse the pun) cup of tea. I’m not a fruit tea drinker so have past these across to my father-in-law.
Sugar free chewing gum. This gum is rich in vitamin B which is supposed to give you an energy boost when you need it. Now I don’t think there is enough gum in the world to do that for me however it was a nice tasting gum.
Ready to use passata in both a puree form which I use often and in a bottle form which I hadn’t used before.
These are made using ripe luscious tomatoes which are crushed and bottled.
The bottle was handy for using a little of and then popping into the fridge to use at a later date. These are items I use a lot of so were very handy – we used combined as an ingredient in our Bolognese as well as in lasagne and a stew during that week. A little goes a long way,
