Degustabox November Box Review

Hello folks, 

I've got a quick little review for you today...

If you're considering a subscription gift for a foodie this Christmas, a Degustabox food box subscription is a brilliant idea. Keep reading to the bottom of this post for a discount code too! 

Degustabox - what is it?

So, here's what we thought about the contents of our Festive themed November Degustabox...

Degustabox November 2018 box

Product of the Month

Amy’s Kitchen
Organic Chunky Tomato & Organic Lentil Vegetable Soup

Amy’s Organic Soups start as vegetables, not as broth. We create our soup base by slowly sautéing tender organics vegetables with herbs. This modern method of making soup allows for the unique flavour of each soup to come forward. Here you’ll try two of our favourites!

These soups are delicious!! They are really amazing quality and packed full of flavour. Tinned soup can so often be a bit of a let down for me, and I usually buy fresh soups, but I will definitely be looking out for these in the supermarket.  A great speedy lunch or light dinner option. 

Emily Veg Crisps
Sweet Potato Sticks

Get your crunch on with new Emily Veg Crisps Sweet Potato Sticks. Try classic Sea Salt with a sprinkling of salt over traditional yellow and bold purple sweet potato, or zesty Chilli and Lime with a beautiful mix of spice with sharp, tangy lime.

I'm obsessed with these sweet potato sticks, Ive tried the other flavours before, and their fruit ranges, and I think they're so tasty. I love the super crunchy texture, and how they aren't oily, as normal 'crisp' style snacks usually are. 

Jules Destrooper
Almond Thins & Belgium Chocolate
The classic Jules Destrooper crisp & nutty Almond Thins biscuit with a thin coating of just enough Belgian Milk chocolate. The perfect indulgent combination.

What a treat! Anything from Jules Destrooper is always a luxury, and these thin little nutty biscuits were divine with a cup of coffee - they're really crunchy and chocolatey enough to feel indulgent in a delicate and refined way.

On The Go Kids

Make mornings smooth with Weetabix on the go for kids. With four single serve pouches in a multi pack, you can be prepared for those busy on the go mornings. In three delicious flavours, a source of Vitamin D, calcium, fibre and protein. No artificial sweeteners, colours or flavours.

We gave these drinks to Connie (Bert doesn't like sweet drinks, always opting for water or milk), and she adored them, most often drinking them in the buggy on the way to take Bert to school, wearing her pink fur coat and sunglasses, that's how she rolls at the moment, haha, she's SO AbFab! The drinks are great to give kids out and about ('on the go', as the name suggests!) and it's great as a parent to know the kids feel like they're having a treat, but actually you know they are a source of goodness. 

Original Red Pepper Sauce

Tabasco original Red Pepper Sauce celebrates its 150th anniversary this year. Tabasco Red Pepper Sauce is made with just three ingredients: red peppers, vinegar and salt. Tabasco is 0 calories and is vegan. Great added to eggs, stirred into Christmas Bloody Mary’s or mixed with mayo for a prawn cocktail.

If you like spicy food, you'll already be au fait with Tabasco sauce - an absolute classic, and for me, a store cupboard staple. I add it often to soups, stews, curries and sauces, it is the perfect condiment for those who like their food fiery! 

Coconut Bar

N!CK’s Coconut is a rich and delicious naturally sweetened coconut bar coated with milk chocolate, with no added sugar. The perfect choice for a delicious guilt-free indulgence. We never add sugar in our products, not now and never!

I think this was my favourite item in this months box - it is basically a posher, better quality and healthier version of a Bounty bar! Yasssss! I will definitely be buying more of these to enjoy as a treat - especially lovely as an afternoon snack/pick me up with a cup of tea. 

Peanut Butter Snowman 141g

A great seasonal treat – a Peanut Butter filled Snowman with a chocolate coating. The perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

What a cute Christmassy treat! We've actually saved this to give to a family member who loves Reese's, we thought it would make a perfect little treat for her at Christmas time. 

Jack Daniel’s & Cola and Jack Daniel’s & Light Cola

A perfect mix of Jack Daniel’s old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey & Cola and Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey & Light Cola. Two convenient, perfectly mixed drinks whether you’re on the go or staying in with friends – best served chilled.

These are similar products to the lemonade one's we tried in a previous box - the light cola one is delicious, and not too heavy on the calorie front, so this would definitely be my choice of the two. If you're a JD fan, these are super convenient and ideal for taking to parties over the festive period. 

Organic Vegetable Stock Pots

TAKE STOCK OF ALL YOUR INGRDIENTS THIS WINTER AND GO ORGANIC WITH Kallo. Kallo organic vegetable stock pots are the perfect partner to enhance all your family favourite, home cooked delicious dishes. Natural, organic and no added MSG or artificial ingredients, they simply add delicious flavour and nothing else.

I LOVE the Kallo stock products, and buy them frequently already - they really are one of the best quality stock pots available, and I'm pleased to have added the vegetable ones to my pantry!

The Bees Knees
Non Alcoholic Sparkling Wine (20cl)

The ‘Bees’ is a sophisticated, vegan friendly alternative to sparkling wine. Made from grapes and infused with green tea, it offers floral aromas with refreshing acidity. It looks and tastes like a sparkling wine, but without alcohol, lower sugar, gluten-free and around half the calories of the average fizz. 

This is another thing I've squirrelled away, to give a pregnant friend when she visits over the festive period, it's ideal for those who don't/can't drink or are driving and will hopefully help them to feel less left out. What a great idea!
