Degustabox – February 2018

Degustabox – February 2018

For those who enjoy trying out new food and drink products, Degustabox is a fun and affordable way to try out a whole box worth of goodies every single month. It’s excellent value for money as the combined total is always far higher than what you pay for the monthly subscription fee, and it helps to make your next supermarket trip more exciting as you’ll know what new products and brands to look out for!

February’s Degustabox has some really interesting products in it, so let’s jump right on in and take a closer look at the contents:-

Primrose’s Kitchen Raw Beetroot and Ginger Muesli (RRP £4.99)

This month’s ‘product of the month’ comes from the artisan brand, Primrose’s Kitchen, who are famous for their delicious and unique breakfast cereals. This box contains their Raw Beetroot and Ginger Museli which is a flavour packed combination of English Beetroot, zingy Ginger, British Gluten-Free Oats, Virgin Coconut Oil, Nuts and Seeds. I wasn’t quite sure what this was going to taste like as I’ve never eaten beetroot like this before, but I scooped a serving into a bowl and poured over some cold Almond Milk for breakfast at the weekend, and it was absolutely delicious! It’s crunchy and full of flavour – I’d definitely buy this again!

True Nopal Cactus Water  

Another interesting product is this 1-litre carton of True Nopal Cactus Water which is made from 100% Cactus Water, and nothing else added. It’s naturally low in sugars and has half the calories of Coconut Water, for an instantly refreshing drink that you can enjoy at any time of the day. Taste-wise, it’s similar to Coconut Water but not as sweet, and instead has a ‘cleaner’ taste with a slightly berryish flavour – you have to try it to see what I mean! I really like it and was pleased to see that Degustabox had also included some money-off vouchers to use on your next purchase.

The Protein Ball Co in Cherry Almond (two packs, RRP £1.99 each)

I’m always on the lookout for healthier, high-protein snacks to eat after a workout or on the go, and I’ve had these packs from The Protein Ball Co before, but in a different flavour. These are basically six mini protein balls that are made from a blend of Dates, Almonds, Cashews, free-range Egg White, Sultanas and Cherries. Each pack provides nearly 10g of protein and they’re free from gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, GMOs and don’t contain any added sugar as well. Super tasty!

Dr. Karg’s Organic Emmental Cheese & Pumpkin Seed Crispbread (RRP £2)

Crispbreads are something that I always like to keep in the cupboard as they’re handy for a quick lunch when you’re short on time or need a little snack to keep you going. This organic variant from Dr. Karg’s contains Wholegrains, a generous amount of extra big Pumpkin Seeds and a good sprinkling of nutty Emmental Cheese for a delicious crunchy combination. Perfect to dip into soups instead of bread, top with slices of tomatoes or cucumbers for a fast snack, or you can break them up and add some crunch and fibre to a salad. Yum!

Emily Fruit Crisps in Crunchy Red Apple (RRP £0.99)

Next up, I found a bag of Emily Crisps in Crunchy Red Apple. These are made from just one ingredient; British red apples, that are hand-cooked to a crisp and crunchy perfection. At only 63 calories per bag and counting as 1 of your 5 a day, these crisps are a healthier alternative and an enjoyable snack to have in your lunchbox.

Indie Bay Snacks Quinoa Pretzel Bites in Cracked Pepper (RRP £2.49) 

For a savoury snack, these Quinoa Pretzel Bites from Indie Bay are absolutely delicious! The brand has reinvented classics such as pretzels and reimagined them with ingredients like Spelt and Quinoa. These baked little bites are a source of fibre and protein, and contain less than 100 calories per portion, for a healthier version of crisps. I really like these and would definitely pick them up again!

Tootsie Roll Midgees (RRP £2.50)

Tootsie Rolls are a popular American chewy candy, but I’ve never tried them before, so it was great to finally have the excuse to see what all the fuss is about! They’ve been around since 1896 which is incredible and they are like a cross between caramel and taffy, with a hint of chocolate flavouring. A bit strange and I’m not sure if I entirely like them, but definitely interesting to try.

KitKat Chunky in New York Cheesecake flavour (RRP £0.65)

I don’t often pick up KitKat Chunkies, but this one is a guilty pleasure. The New York Cheesecake flavour has a super sweet and creamy layer sandwiched between chunky chocolate and crisp wafers. Mmmmmm!

Hairbo Fruitlicious (two packs, RRP £1.29 each)

The last two products come from Haribo’s new Fruitlicious range which contains 30% less sugar than regular Haribo sweets and are packed full of assorted fruity flavours. Sadly I couldn’t eat these as they have gelatine in them, but it’s good to see sweets with less sugar in them and these would be ideal for kids parties.
