September Degustabox

Hi everyone! After the great feedback from my previous blog post about the August Degustabox (you can read that post here) I couldn't wait to share with you another post on everyone's favourite surprise food subscription box and show you the contents of Septembers box.

If you are new to Degustabox, the concept is that for just £12.99 a Month, you receive a box full of 9-14 surprise food and drinks products, usually new to the market or something out of the ordinary!

This Month's box* was really full. I am really impressed with the variety of the products inside of this Months box; ranging from drinks, confectionery, to cereal and marmalade. I love that the box incorporates food and drink for different meals in the day- from Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (or Dinner and Tea!). Everything in this Months box is usable and there is something everyone in the family will enjoy.

I have a £3 of voucher code for you all again, too. Simply enter the code 4784579 at the checkout stage and you will receive a £3 discount on your order!

Product of The Month!
Little Miracles Organic Energy Tea and Fruit Juices

This Month, Degustabox showcase their product of the Month; the Little Miracles Organic Tea and Fruit Juices. These taste amazing and are a great wake - up on a Morning, or a pick - me - up throughout the day. Little Miracles are free from artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners, and have less than 90 calories a bottle. 

The blends I received were Green Tea, Ginseng, Pomegranate, Acai & Agave, and Lemongrass Tea, Orange Juice, Ginger, Ginseng, and Agave. The Lemongrass Tea, Orange Juice, Ginger, Ginseng, and Agave drink was very refreshing and really light. Our favourite was the Green Tea, Ginseng, Pomegranate, Acai & Agave drink as it reminded us of tip-tops! Green tea is always a winner with us so I'll definitely be looking more into the Little Miracles drinks in the future. You can check out their website here to see their other tea and fruit juices. I love the sound of the Black Tea and Peach flavour!

Righteous Dressings
The first items I was drawn to in my Degustabox were three 50ml tubs of Righteous Dressings. They are made with only 100% natural ingredients and are perfect to add to a salad for an extra kick. The flavours I received were Raspberry & Sweet Basil, Mild English Blue Cheese & Cider Dressing and Lemon & Mustard Seed Dressing. I am looking forward to giving these a go as they aren't something I would normally purchase! Righteous products are available in Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsburys.

Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Mint Thins
I absolutely love dark mint chocolate so this is a definite winner in my books! These are so tasty to snack on with a coffee. I would actually consider these to be quite a 'posh' and more luxurious chocolate than we would normally buy at home, so a real treat. We cant wait to dig into these.

Bahlsen Pick Up! 
Bahlsen Pick Up! Milk Chocolate Biscuits are absolutely delicous. They are basically a thick layer of chocolate cased between two crisp biscuits. They are very moreish and a really nice treat to snack on. I received a pack of 5 Black 'n White and a pack of 5 Milk Chocolate. They both taste delicious, but the winners are the new Black 'n White flavour. Seriously - addictive.

Burts Lentil Waves
Burts Lentil Waves are seriously addictive crisp like snacks. A little different to a potato snack, I had never heard of Lentil snacks before until now. I absolutely loved the Sour Cream and Chive flavour - so tasty. The other two flavours are Thai Sweet Chilli and Lightly Salted. Definitely worth a try if you like flavourful crunchy snacks. Burts Lentil Waves are available from Waitrose.

La Vieja Fabrica Marmalade
La Vieja Fabrica Marmalade is made using only the best Seville Oranges. I have never heard of this brand before, and haven't eaten marmalade for many years, but I have really enjoyed revisiting this 
childhood favourite with a generous spread on my toast each Morning. 

Jordans Simply Granola Crunchy Baked Oats with a Hint of Honey
A huge 750g bag of granola. What is not to love? It tastes great, I particularly like the hint of honey. I have tried it both with milk as a cereal, and I have also sprinkled it over plain yoghurt. I'll be sharing a super easy how-to with this granola in a future blog post, too! 
I am so impressed with the size of the product. I am eager to try more Jordans products in the future, and will be checking out the Jordans section on my next grocery shop. 

Nestle Carnation Cook With It!
This Months box included two 525g cartons of Cook With It! I have never seen these in the supermarket before so I am really intrigued to try it. I think these would be perfect to add to thicken a soup or a homemade curry. Canation Cook With It! Cooking Creme is available to buy online at Tesco, 
currently at £1.65.

Crabbies (Non Alcohol Option)
John Crabbie and Co Traditional Cloudy Lemonade with a Twist of Ginger
Cloudy lemonade is my all time favourite drink - ever. I absolutely love it. I loved it during my childhood, and I am still hooked. Surprisingly. though I had never tried Crabbies Cloudy Lemonade. It tastes amazing and so refreshing. I dont really know how to explain how this tastes, but if you like cloudy lemonade I urge you to try this - it tastes absolutely gorgeous. This is stocked in Supermarkets at £2.50 for a 700ml bottle, which I think is great value for money.

Crabbies (Alcohol Option)
Zesty Lemon
The Alcoholic option in this Months Degustabox was Crabbies Alcoholics Fruits in Zesty Lemon. Being a huge fan of lemon drinks, I am sure this will taste great. Being one of the only items I haven't tried yet, I am looking forward to having a glass of this on the Weekend. Crabbies Alcoholic Fruits are available in 4 packs at most Supermarkets for £5.99 per pack.
