Before I start, I must apologise for the lack of photos – I managed to wipe my memory card and lost them all! I need to say a huge thank you to Stacey at Stacey in the Sticks for sending across a photo of the box for me to use.
The Degustabox, for those of you who don’t know, is a food and drink subscription box costing £12.99 a month. The contents are always worth a lot more though, and it’s an excellent way of testing out new products, or products that you may not think to try normally. We’ve been having them for a while, and we love the excitement of the box arriving (by DPD courier) and cracking it open to see what is inside.
Degustabox October 2017
Hippeas In Herbs We Trust – RRP £2.29
These are organic chickpea puffs. We have had them in previous boxes and considering they are a healthy alternative to crisps, they’re actually quite nice and moreish. Alex, our little crisp fiend, loved them!
Pechkeks Misfortune Cookies – RRP £1.50
Another product we have had before and enjoyed. Think gothic fortune cookie! They’re black, which is a bit strange at first and have a rather pessimistic message inside. They’d be fab if you were throwing a Halloween party.
Nuttvia Breadsticks Snackpack – RRP £1.70
Remember those chocolate dipstick type things, with the mini breadsticks that you dip into the chocolate? Well, this is the grown-up version. The chocolate is hazelnut – not as sickly sweet as Nutella though. This is one I snaffled for myself!
Michel et Augustin cookies – RRP £1.60
These were lush – crunchy cookies with a melty chocolate centre. Sadly, they were a bit battered and broken by the time they arrived, but I’ll be looking out for these again!
Vimto Millions Gift Jar – RRP £2.99
As you know, I’m not a massive fan of sweets but Graham and the boys loved them. I loved the fact they were in a jar – they were easier to store and would be good for giving as a gift.
Kabuto Noodles Chilli, Coconut & Lime Chicken – RRP £1.99
I’m sure we have had these before – I’m not really a fan of rice noodles but Graham took them to work for a quick and easy lunch (you just add hot water) and he really enjoyed them.
Heinz No Added Sugar Hoops in Tomato Sauce – RRp £0.75
We’ve always got a tin or 6 of spaghetti hoops in the cupboard for last minute meals. I liked the fact that these don’t have any added sugar in them.
Feel Good Drinks -RRP 2 x £1.20 (Strawberry and Mint and Orange, Mango and Water)
These were ok – I wasn’t massively keen on the strawberry and mint one but it was drinkable. Harrison liked the orange and mango one.
Pulsin’ Kids Orange Choc Chip Fruity Oat Bars – RRP £0.59
This was incredibly sweet. I thought it would be a nice alternative to a chocolate bar, but it wasn’t really to my taste at all.
Pip’s Real Hot Chocolate Coins – RRP £1.50
Another product we’ve had before and I was glad to see it back! You pop this into some hot milk and whisk – it’s like drinking a cup of melted chocolate orange!
Lee Kum Kee Sauces, 2 x £0.85 each
We haven’t used these yet but they sound lush. We’ve popped them in the cupboard for an easy tea for Graham and me.
