It’s Degustabox time! Degutsabox is the monthly food subscription box that, for only £12.99 including P&P, is packed with goodies from new innovative brands as well as some old favourites delivered straight to your door. Don’t forget to check out my exclusive £7 off promo code at the bottom of today’s post for first time subscribers. Last month’s Christmas box contained tasty treats from Butterkist, Hartley’s and J20, let’s see what’s inside ‘The Winter Box’…
My favourite item in this month’s box is without a doubt this full sized box of Oh Fudge! from Bristow’s (£4.99). There are three varieties up for grabs this month and I received the scrumptious Apple & Cinnamon box. The fudge was buttery, smooth and packed full of flavour. I can’t wait to get my hands on their Sea Salt & Caramel version too!
Next, we have four beverages that couldn’t be more different from one another if they tried! What a Melon (£2) which contains 100% natural (nothing from concentrate) watermelon water. It basically tastes like Summer in a bottle. Not only is the packaging unbelievably pretty, it’s one of the most refreshing beverages I’ve ever tried. Why did no one come up with this sooner?
This non-alcohol wine from Eisberg (£1.39) in. This bottle of Sauvignon Blanc contains gooseberry and tropical fruit flavours with only 28 calories in a 125ml glass. It tastes incredibly similar to the real thing and is great for anyone driving but still wanting to join in with the festivities this Hogmanay. The Newton’s Appl Fizzics (£1.29) in Just Apple is another great alternative if you’re avoiding the booze this New Year. Containing no artificial ingredients, preservatives or added sugar this sweet blend of sparkling apple juice is delicious.
Finally, we have a long-lasting full-sized carton of semi-skimmed cow’s milk from A2 Milk (£1.39). Not only is this perfect for keeping in the cupboard for milk-related emergancies, it’s also ‘easy to digest’ thanks to the A2 protein their cows produce. Who knew not all cows milk was the same?
I wasn’t too sure what this was at first, but this bag of Bahlsen Lebkuchen Mischung (£1.99) contains pieces of fragrant gingerbread glazed in chocolate and the Bahlsen Akora (£1.99) contains heart shapes biscuits filled with spiced jam. Both are German delicacies and their scent reminds me of the Christmas market I visited this year.
I also received two bags of a ‘satisfying crisp alternative’ from Hoots (69p each) in Salt & Pepper and Salt & Vinegar. These savoury treats are baked not fried and contain wholegrains and seeds whilst providing a good source fibre and being vegan-friendly.
This full-sized box of gluten-free Nutri-Brex (£3.79) makes for a great Weetabix alternative if you’re looking for a breakfast cereal that’s a little less bland. Made with crispy rice, coconut and a hint of cinnamon wheat, each bite is delicious topped with your favourite sliced fruit or/and yoghurt.
Finally, we have three convenient and filling lunchtime snacks from Maggi and Gallo. The Four Cheese Risotto (£2.29) can be simply popped into the microwave for an instant meal at home or at work as can the Risotto Box (£2), and the 3 Minute Noodles (75p) are a life saver when I have just a few blissful minutes to prepare my lunch whilst the baby is taking a nap.
No one can argue that this month’s box wasn’t packed full of delicious treats. What was your favourite product? Do leave me a comment down below as I’d love to know.
