This month’s Degustabox is themed Gourmet & Fiesta and is a real treat for foodies, students and families alike! As always the box is full to the brim with exciting products to try out, so let’s jump right in and have a look at all of the goodies!

Please note: We have been sent the PR Degustabox so your contents may be slightly different – we have pointed this out throughout the review.

Oteas Green Tea, Cranberry, Cherry & Strawberry (RRP £3.39)

Ideal as a healthy mid-afternoon treat, this delicious Green Tea from Oteas is infused with extracts of Cranberry, Cherry and Strawberry for a refreshing and fruity twist. There are also some sweet apples in the mix for extra flavour so this tea has a lovely balance between sweet and sour.

Candy Kittens Tropical Mango Sweets (RRP £2)

How cute are these cat-shaped sweets?! Made with real fruit juice, these tasty Tropical Mango flavour Candy Kittens are vegan-friendly and free from gluten and dairy so lots of people can enjoy them. I’m a big fan of these!

UFIT Crunchers Sea Salt & Vinegar Popped Protein Chips (free gift)

Subscribers will find a free gift in their box this month in the shape of a bag of UFIT Crunchers Popped Protein Chips in Sea Salt & Vinegar flavour. Boasting 8g of protein and only 150 calories per bag, these are a much healthier crisp alternative, yet still have lots of crunch and flavour to them.

Very Lazy Chopped Garlic (RRP £1.50)

If you enjoy cooking from scratch but would like to save some time whilst in the kitchen, the Very Lazy range is just for you! Featuring a jar of Chopped Garlic, this speedy ingredient will add flavour to any dish in no time at all – very handy for your cupboard!

Smith & Sinclair Alcoholic Cocktail Gummy in Pineapple Bellini (alcohol box subscribers)

If you subscribe to the Alcohol version of Degustabox, you’ll find a delicious Alcoholic Cocktail Gummy from London based cocktail confectionery specialists, Smith & Sinclair. Flavoured with Pineapple Bellini, these gummies contain half a shot of alcohol and are vegan-friendly.

Pedrino Vermouth & Tonic Spritz (RRP £1.95 – alcohol box subscribers)

Using all-natural ingredients, this refreshing original blend spritzer is full of subtle floral and fruity botanical flavours and at only 5.5% vol, it’s a lighter option to enjoy this Christmas. Service chilled over ice for the best results.

Lagunitas DayTime Session IPA (£1.80 – alcohol box subscribers)

Also in the Alcohol version this month, you’ll find a bottle of Lagunitas DayTime Session IPA – a light beer with plenty of hops. At just 98 calories per bottle and 4% ABV, it’s another refreshing light alternative to try this festive season.

King Monty Sunny Orange and Pop Rice Chocolate Snacks (non-alcohol box subscribers)

For those who have chosen to subscribe to the non-alcohol version of Degustabox, there are two delicious luxury plant-based chocolate snacks from premium brand, King Monty, for you to devour. In two flavours, there’s Sunny Orange which is like a dairy-free classic chocolate orange, and Pop Rice, a bar of milk chocolate that’s studded with crispy pieces. Yum!

Gloriously Grown Vietnamese Jumbo Wrapped Cashews (RRP £3)

Next up, I found a bag of Gloriously Grown Vietnamese Jump Wrapped Cashews – the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas nibbles table with their smooth and creamy texture.

Made Good Granola Bars (RRP £2.90 – subscribers will receive one box)

How amazing are these Granola Bars from Made Good? With child allergies on the rise and many schools now banning food that contains ingredients such as nuts, these Made Good Granola Bars are allergy-friendly and safe for kids lunchboxes. There are three flavours to choose from – Mixed Berry, Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Banana, and you’ll find one box to try out this month.

New from Blue Dragon is this interesting Thai Basil Stir Fry Kit which makes preparing a tasty dinner super quick and easy. There are three elements included; a base, a sauce and a topping, so all you need to add are your favourite fresh ingredients for a delicious mid-week meal.

Blue Dragon Teriyaki Street Food Skewers (RRP £2.70)

Also new from Blue Dragon are these yummy Teriyaki Street Food Skewers which contain the base sauces, sesame seeds and skewers for you to create your own oriental dish at home. A good one to involve the kids in!
