Degustabox – January 2020: Breakfast & On The Go

Degustabox is one of the UK’s most popular food & drink subscription boxes, and every month, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a whole box packed full of the latest treats! January’s box is themed Breakfast & On The Go, so let’s check out what’s inside, shall we?

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

Chescots SuperGut Porridge Pots (RRP £1.99 each)

Developed by a doctor and nutritionist Dr Jamie Mills, Chescots is a luxury health brand and these SuperGut Porridge Pots are perfect for a quick and easy breakfast when you’re short on time in the mornings. Each pot contains half of your daily fibre and has prebiotic fibres to support your gut. There are two flavours to enjoy, Blackcurrant, Coconut & Chia and Raspberry & Chia, both shown above – you’ll find one pot to try in your box this month – which did you receive?

Eat Natural Simply Vegan Fruit & Nut Bar (RRP £1)

Proudly vegan-friendly, this Fruit & Nut Bar from Eat Natural is packed full of chunky peanuts, coconut shreds, creamy seeds, unsulphured apricots, roasted chickpeas and an indulgent layer of dark chocolate. Satisfyingly chewy and full of plant-based protein, it’s a good bar to pick up and take with you on a busy commute.

Wholesums Fresh Veg Popped Chips in Salt Of The Earth (RRP £1.75)

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to mainstream crisps, Wholesums are a new product on the market which is made from a blend of whole carrots, peas and potatoes, so none of the good stuff is left out. At only 86 calories per bag, it’s a vegan, gluten-free and guilt-free treat!

Whitworths Shots in Berry & White Chocolate (RRP £1.60 for a 4 pack)

Next up, I found a box of Whitwhorths Shots which are individually wrapped snack packs of mixed berries, nuts, seeds and pieces of white chocolate. Each pack is only 98 calories so it’s a good one for handbags and lunchboxes.

Kallo Organic Honey Rice & Corn Cakes (RRP £1.89)

The latest addition to Kallo’s popular range of Organic Rice Cakes are these Rice & Corn Cakes which are delicately flavoured with Organic Honey. Brilliant for breakfast, try them topped with Greek or Soy Yoghurt, sliced banana or berries – yum!

Nescafé Gold Almond Latte (RRP £2.98)

January’s Degustabox product of the month is this interesting dairy-free alternative from Nescafé Gold. Using a blend of high-quality almond and coffee ingredients, each non-dairy sachet is easy to prepare. Simply add hot water, stir and enjoy a creamy and smooth Almond Latte.

Crafted Blueberry & Blackberry Fruit Juice Drink (RRP £1.50)

Made from all-natural ingredients with absolutely no added sugar, sweeteners or preservatives, Crafted’s range of fruit juice drinks are certified by the Vegan Society and count as one of your five a day. This blend of blueberries and blackberries is refreshingly different and particularly good poured over ice!

Bounce Peanut Energy Ball (RRP £1.79)

For a handy snack on the go, Bounce’s Energy Balls come in a range of flavours. This one is Peanut and contains an impressive 13g of protein, alongside heart-healthy fats and antioxidants. Best of all, it’s utterly moreish! I would definitely buy these again.

PrepCo Meal Pots – Thai Green Curry Rice & Quinoa and Indian Spiced Lentils & Rice (RRP £2 each)

New from PrepCo are these ultra-convenient meal pots which are made with tasty natural ingredients and enough veg to count as one of your five a day. Making them couldn’t be easier – just add hot water and let it do its thing for 5 minutes before tucking in. In your Degustabox this month you’ll find one of four flavours to try out and a money off voucher for your next purchase.

KitKat Chunky More and Yorkie More Bars (RRP £1.29 each)

New from Nestlé are two exciting chocolate bars with a difference. The first is KitKat Chunky More which features a later of Raspberry & Hazelnut, and the second is Yorkie More which is made with Oats, Apple and Cinnamon. What makes these different is that there’s 30% less sugar than similar bars and they contain a source of protein.

Sun-Pat Crunchy or Smooth Peanut Butter (RRP £1.79)

Packed with 96% peanuts, Sun-Pat is a hugely popular brand of peanut butter but if you haven’t tried it for yourself before, now’s the chance! Spread it onto taste, rice cakes, stir into porridge or eat it with a spoon straight from the jar – it’s yummy! You’ll find either Crunchy or Smooth in your box this month – which one is your favourite?

Zest Vegan Basil Pesto (RRP £2.20)

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians, Zest Basil Pesto is made with only the leaf of the basil plant and cashew nuts, without any cheese, other animal products or anything else that’s artificial. I loved this and have already eaten it stirred through a big bowl of pasta – the perfect comfort food!
