Degustabox – September 2018

If you haven’t heard of Degustabox before, they are a popular food and drink subscription box which is aimed at families, students and anyone who enjoys trying out new food and drink products. Their monthly boxes are brilliant value for money as you always receive more than what you pay for the subscription fee cost, and you can expect to receive a variety of products from both well known and exciting independent brands.

Curious to find out more? Keep reading to find out what’s inside this month’s Degustabox!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (RRP £0.89)

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my favourite American chocolate products because who doesn’t love that classic combination of milk chocolate and peanut butter?! You get three cups in a pack and they are delicious!

Cadbury Oreo Instant Hot Chocolate (RRP £2.99)

New from Cadbury’s is a very exciting addition to their Hot Chocolate range and a must-have for anyone who loves Oreos! Easy to prepare, you just mix a little of the instant flavoured powder with hot water and hey presto, you have a comforting, warming chocolate drink with the flavour of Oreos mixed in – super yummy.

Juicy Fuel Cola Original (RRP £1.50)

Moving onto drinks, this bright red can is the brand new craft cola drink from Juicy Fuel. Made from 100% natural ingredients, it has no added sugar, e-numbers or any artificial colours or flavourings. It’s very refreshing and a much healthier version of Coca Cola.

Jack Daniels Tennessee Cider (alcoholic box only)

When you sign up to Degustabox, you can choose to have a box that includes alcohol, so if you went for that option, you’ll receive a bottle of Jack Daniels Tenessee Cider this month. This drink combines classic Jack Daniel’s Tenessee Whiskey with a crisp Apple Cider and it’s really good!

Mallow & Marsh Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Marshmallows (RRP £2.50)

For an extra special indulgent sweet treat, these Mallow & Marsh Marshmallows are coated in a rich 70% Dark Chocolate and have a tangy Raspberry flavoured centre. These are quite different from the types of marshmallows that I usually see in the shops and they’ve been a hit with my housemates this weekend.

Choc Chick Cacao Nibbles (RRP £1.85)

Want something chocolatey but healthy at the same time? These Organic Cacao Nibs from Choc Chick are a delicious way to enjoy the whole cocoa bean and are packed full of antioxidants, magnesium, iron and prebiotics. Sprinkle onto porridge, yoghurts, cereals or use in baking.

Dr Karg’s Organic Tomato & Mozzarella Wholegrain Snack (RRP £1.60)

These snack packs from Dr Karg’s feature crunchy wholegrain squares which are bursting full of a yummy Tomato & Mozzarella flavour. A natural source of fibre, they’re great for nibbling on when you need a pick me up throughout the day or dunk them into cream cheese or houmous for an even more satisfying snack.

Yes! Fruit & Nut Bars (RRP £1.20 each)

Next, I found three Yes! Fruit & Nut Bars in Dark Choc, Sea Salt & Almond, Beetroot & Apple and Cranberry & Dark Choc flavours. Each bar contains no added sugar and provides a source of plant-based protein to your everyday diet. My favourite out of these is the first one because I love the combination of Dark Choc, a little Salt and crunchy almonds – yum!

Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps (RRP £1.80)

Made from simple ingredients such as butter, sugar, eggs and flour, these light and crunchy Butter Crisps are delicately caramelised and feature a subtle hint of spice. Perfect for accompanying your latte or afternoon tea, these are a much loved Belgian classic and are absolutely moreish.

Indie Bay Spelt Pretzel Bites in Smokin’ BBQ (RRP £0.99)

Introducing two new flavours of Indie Bay’s popular Spelt Pretzel Bites, you’ll find a bag of these in your Degustabox this month and I was pleased to find the Smokin’ BBQ flavour which is really good. Providing a source of fibre and protein, these Spelt Pretzel Bites are a healthier alternative to crisps and are suitable for vegans too.

Good Hemp Hemp Seed Hearts (RRP £3.99)

High in protein and Omegas 3 and 6, these all-natural Hemp Seed Hearts have a subtle nutty flavour and are delicious used in baking, as well as sprinkling onto soups and salads for an extra healthy kick. You get a huge bag too so these should last for a while!

A2 Long Life Whole Cows’ Milk (RRP £1.50)

Naturally free from the A1 protein that’s found in regular cow’s milk, A2 is a much more easy to digest milk for those who suffer from milder dairy intolerances. Personally, I don’t drink cows’ milk, but I can see the appeal of a product like this for those who want it.
