We were sent the box for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s that time of the month again, our thoughts on this month’s Degustabox. This is the ‘festive’ Degustabox – so what did we get in the box? (You can buy yours here for just £12.99 including delivery!).
Tabasco Original Red Pepper Sauce – £2
This isn’t something we use all that often but it is something we always have in our cupboard, just in case. Made with just three ingredients: red peppers, vinergar and salt; it has zero calories and is vegan too! I’ll definitely be using this at Christmas time.
The Bee’s Knees Non Alcoholic Sparkling Wine 20cl – £1.89
If you will be enjoying a festive tipple but someone prefers a non alcoholic alternative, this may be the drink for you. It is a sophisticated, vegan friendly alternative to sparkling wine, made from grapes and infused with green tea.
Mallow & Marsh Cranberry Marshmallows
These were a lovely addition – we’ve had Mallow & Marsh products before and absolutely loved them.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Snowman – £3
This barely made it out of the box before Steve claimed it. He is a big fan of Reese’s products so this was a lovely seasonal treat – a peanut butter filled snowman with a chocolate coating. Steve certainly enjoyed it.
Amy’s Kitchen Organic Chunky Tomato & Organic Lentil Vegetable Soup – £1.80
These are the product of the month and I can see why. I think I’m in love. I adore soup at this time of year – well, anytime of year actually if I am being perfectly honest – and I absolutely loved these. They are a new brand to me but I will be certainly getting them again – especially the tomato soup as it was absolutely delicious!
Unfortunately these got a bit damaged in transit to my house however that didn’t affect the taste. I am not an almond fan so I didn’t like this – a shame as I love most other Jules Destrooper products. Steve found them okay but the kids absolutely adored them! Goes to show you can’t please everyone all of the time.
Now I don’t know about your kids but my son loves breakfast drinks or even those little probiotic drinks you can get! Jack was very excited to see these – there are four single serve pouches in this multi pack and are a source of vitamin D, calcium, fibre and protein. They have no artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours.
I’ve previously tried the Emily Veg Crisps and really liked them so I was very excited to see these new sweet potato sticks. They made for a great snack and were very flavourful as I expected.
A rich and delicious naturally sweetened coconut bar with no added sugar, this was a great snack and perfect for some guilt free indulgence.
This is the second or third month in a row that we’ve had Jack Daniel’s products and whilst I am appreciative and the drinks have been different each time, it is getting a little monotonous now. As always, they tasted good but I’d like to see something different next month.
What is a kitchen without some stock pots or cubes? We always have some and these are natural, organic and have no added MSG or artificial ingredients. I was very happy to see these included.
With a price point of £12.99, this box works out as roughly around £23/£24 in content value which is a great deal – almost double the price you are paying. I was quite impressed with this box this month however for a festive theme, this could have been way more festive and I’d like to see a difference from Jack Daniel’s products in the future.
