This box is really well decorated inside and out. While the outside has little food items on it, the inside is full of bright green words. Plastic wrap and brown butcher paper keep all the contents safe.

March’s Degustabox is all about Easter. The information sheet shares details of all the treats inside the box.

The featured item of the month is Smarties & Milkybar Mixed Mini Eggs (£3.00). The brightly coloured eggs contain milk chocolate in a fruity candy shell, while the lighter coloured eggs contain white chocolate.

The chocolates are sweet and smooth, and the 300g bag is plenty to share as an Easter treat.

Cirio Pasta Sauce (£2.00) is an Italian premium tomato sauce that is new to the UK. I received the Classica flavour in my box, which is a nice, simple sauce with a strong tomato flavour.

The box contains a full-value voucher for Cheesestrings Snack Mix (£1.00). This is a 3 in 1 snack containing real cheese cubes, a savoury nibble (mini pretzels or crackers) and a sweet treat (cherry strings, fruity cubes or fruity mix). The little packs are ideal for snacking at school or on the go.

Mr Lee’s Noodles (£2.99) are a range of premium noodles in a cup, using freeze dried ingredients, free from MSG, hydrogenated fats, low in sugar and calories and gluten free. I received the Dragon Fire Vegetables flavour, which is hot and sour rice noodles with red miso, bamboo shoots, green beans, mushroom and tamari soy sauce. The hot and sour broth was tasty and the mix of vegetables was a nice change from what you normally find in a noodle pot. The noodles got a bit too soft for my taste, but all in all, this is a good option for a super quick and easy lunch.

Encona Carolina Reaper Chilli Sauce (£1.49) is a limited edition sauce – the company’s hottest – combining the world’s hottest chilli pepper, tomato and spices. This stuff delivers on the heat! I really liked the flavour, which has an intense heat with a subtle smokiness. I also liked that it’s not too vinegary, which is a common complaint I have with hot sauces. If you like your food spicy, then I’d definitely recommend this as a scorching, yet flavourful, hot sauce option.

Appy Kids Co Roald Dahl Fruit Drinks (£1.29) is a no sugar added juice drink for kids featuring favourite characters from Dahl’s books. I tried the Mixed Berries Fruit Drink which had Matilda on the box. This was good tasting juice, and only 44 calories per box, although it had a slightly different flavour from what I expected due to the the steviol sweetener.

Hafervoll Flapjack Limited Lebkuchen (£1.99) are 100% natural oat bars, handmade and oven-baked.

This is dense and a bit drier than your usual flapjack. It has a lovely warming ginger and clove flavour, nuttiness from the almonds and isn’t too sweet. I like that this uses wholesome ingredients, all stuff you could find in a kitchen cabinet. This is very tasty and, with 321 calories per bar, a satisfying snack.

Ribena Pineapple & Passion Fruit (£2.49) is a new tropical squash flavour with no added sugar. This has a really strong passion fruit flavour which I just love – it’s a bit tart yet sweet, and makes a refreshing drink.

Canny 100% Natural Chocolate Milk (£1.59) is an all natural drink with no refined sugar. This is lush chocolate milk! It’s super creamy and thick from the addition of cornflour, with a lovely taste of cocoa and sweetness from date nectar.

Shreddies Max Granola (£2.59) combines crunchy oat clusters with shreddies pieces. My box looked like it’d had a traumatic experience at some point!; I’m not sure why, considering the Degustabox has plenty of bubble wrap and paper inside. Anyway, I liked this a lot, the little bits of shreddies and puffed rice makes this a bit lighter than your average granola and adds a nice cereal flavour.

Tenzing Natural Energy (£1.19) is a natural drink containing just green coffee, guaran, green tea, Himilayan rock salt, beet sugar and lemon juice. This is lightly fizzy with a slightly sweet, somewhat fruity taste. With about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, this is a good option for those seeking an energy boost.

All the products in March’s Degustabox were a treat to try.  I most enjoyed the Hafervoll Flapjack and the Ribena.
