Kinder Cheesecakes and Degustabox April Review

Another month and another lovely selection of food from Degustabox. I have to say that I get excited knowing that my box is on its way. So what was in this months box and what did I think of it?

Veetee: I have purchased the plain Veetee rice before as I find it so handy to have some speedy rice on hand. These new flavours are a great edition to the range.

Barry's Tea: I have to confess I am no tea connoisseur. This was tea. It was fine.

Cirio: I have tried the Cirio products before and think that they are good quality tomatoes and puree.

Kinder Chocolate with cereals: These were nice but not as good as the Choco-Bons.

Kinder Choco-Bons: These were lovely. My husband wasn't keen as they have hazelnuts in, but that means all the more for me! I used these in my cheesecakes.

Kingfisher: This was in your box if you opted for the alcoholic selection. I drank it with my curry. It was OK.

Schwartz: We have tried the Balti sauce and it tasted nice and was easy to prepare. Good to have in the cupboard for when you need inspiration.

Nandos: We were sent a selection of flavours and enjoyed them all.

DeBeukelaer: These came individually packed so that you could microwave them. They tasted very sweet but I enjoyed them.

Scheckter's Organic Energy: Not to my taste.

IdrinQ: Again not my kind of drink.

These are all the products available, and it depends on whether you have opted for alcoholic or non alcoholic box, on what you will receive,




Individual Kinder Cheesecake recipe (makes 6)

Kinder Cheesecakes



12 chocolate digestive biscuits
50g butter
250g Philadelphia
80g icing sugar
100ml double cream
A packet of Kinder Choco-Bons

Crush the digestives and add the belted butter. Put into individual bowls or ramekins.

Whisk the Philadelphia, icing sugar and double cream.

Slice half of the Kinder Choco-Bons. Mix these in with the cream cheese mixture. Place this on top of the digestive bases.

Add a Kinder Choco-Bon on top of each dessert. The hardest part about this dessert is not eating all the Choco-bons as you make them.

  10. Ive been desperate to sign up for these for months, but my hubby wont let me as we have a tight budget for food , and is worried we wont like some of the items and thinks its a gamble. i like showing him the reviews from bloggers each month, but no joy :-) mind u, it took me 8 years to convince him to have a baby..... so maybe in a few years i can try one xx

    I think you may have just confirmed the reasons why I don't subscribe to any of these boxes, various items that are just OK or not to your taste, is it worth it for one or 2 really good items?

    I tried these for 3 months. There were some lovely items, but too many that we wouldn't use so cancelled.

    On the whole good - but a few things I would never buy. I loved the stroopwafels, not at all keen on the slim pasta

    That's the problem with subscription boxes I guess. Sometimes you get really great ones others not so good. If you like trying new things then I think degustabox do that. But if you are on a budget then no. it is the unusal engery products that are a bit disappointing for me.

  25. paying for a box of things you might not like seems a waste of money to me -I have to budget as it is and it seems a bit hit and miss

    Degustabox is very good value. I had one last year with different products inside and it was very nice.

    I am not sure about this concept as I live alone and might waste money on the things I do not like.
