October Degustabox

Another Month has gone by, which means only one thing... another amazing Degustabox to share with you. Once again, I am thoroughly impressed with the variety of products in this Months box. 
If you are unfamiliar with Degustabox, it is a surprise subscription service where you are sent a mixture of different food and drink products once a Month, that you would perhaps not normally buy, and are often new products. 
Degustabox Fridge is back this Month with a coupon for a free pack of 4 Benecol Greek Style Yoghurts. I love yoghurt so I will definitely be heading to the supermarket this week to pick those up.

I have another code for you this Month which entitles you to £3 your next order! Simply enter the code TWAPL at the checkout to receive £3 off.
Now I will get to the exciting part now where I share what is included in this Months box.

Kent's Kitchen Bengal Meal Kit
Costing just £2.50 per kit, Kent's Kitchen Meal Kits are ideal for when you have all of the fresh ingredients for an authentic meal - but nothing else. Included in the Bengal kit is curry spices, garlic oil and the bengal curry paste. I think these are a great concept to keep in your cupboard for when you need some cooking inspiration. I already have my eye on a few of the other kits, particularly the Chilli Con Carne Kit.

Special K Cracker Crisps
Special K's Barbecue Cracker Crisps are really tasty, and are relatively low in fat as they have 60% less fat than any ordinary crisps. They can get quite addictive and are perfect for a get together or a night in. These cost just £1.89 and are available from most supermarkets.

Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce
This Months box includes two bottles of Sweet Chilli Sauce by Blue Dragon. Sweet Chilli Sauce is great to add to every day meals. I haven't tried this yet but I am really excited to try it, as I love adding a kick to my food! Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce is available from Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco, Waitrose and Morrisons for £1.39 for two bottles.

Get Buzzing Original Nutty Flapjack
Flapjacks are super healthy, and Get Buzzing Flapjacks are 100% natural. The original nutty flavour was the flapjack that was in our box, and it tasted really nice. I loved the addition of the nuts, it made the flapjack taste completely different. They are available to purchase from their website here. Get Buzzing are currently offering 10% off any order with the discount code 'newbuzz10'.

Enhance For Water in Orange & Passion Fruit
I had never heard of this brand before but my Sister has been desperate to try these out for quite a while, so she was impressed when we found this in the box. Enhance is basically used to add small drops into your water (at home or on the go) to make it taste delicious and fruity. There is no added sugar in Enhance drinks, and they only have one calorie per drink. I haven't yet tried this but my Sister tells me its a very fruity and interesting taste, and that you can really taste the passion-fruit. These cost £2.49 and are available from Ocado and Asda.

Solo Marshmallow Creme
This is probably the most random yet intriguing product I found in the box this Month. It is a Toasted Marshmallow Creme by Solo, which is a spreadable treat. It tastes a little like nougat and I can imagine it would be great when making smores or baking treats ready for Bonfire Night! Solo Marshmallow Creme is available from American Soda online here for £1.99.

Dr. Oetker Premium 90% Extra Dark Chocolate
Who doesn't love dark chocolate? I have used this before and it tastes amazing! I cant wait to use this again. Dr. Oetker is a brand I am fairly familiar with and one I do purchase again and again. I cant wait to get baking using this! This costs £2.49 and is available from most large supermarkets, and their website here.

Bear Paws Fruit Snack
Bears is a brand I absolutely love. These fruit snacks contain no added sugar or any concentrates. These are really cute, very addictive to eat, and a great alternative to sweets. Bears Paws Fruit Snacks are available for 55 pence per pack in most supermarkets, usually found in the baby aisle.

Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder
Perfect for baking, I cant wait to try this cocoa powder out. Dr. Oetker is a fantastic brand for baking so I know this will be good. I have plans to use this in a recipe soon so I may share that on my blog. The cocoa powder come in packs of three sachets with a free recipe card. They are available to buy for £1.89 from their website here.

Brioche Pasquier Sliced Brioche Loaf
The Brioche Pasquier Sliced Loaf tastes just like the rolls I tried out a few Months ago. I love that it is already sliced so ready to use straight away. It tastes really great toasted, which is how I have been eating it. Brioche Pasquier products are available from Tesco. A loaf costs just £1.69, which is quite reasonable.

Jelly Belly Jelly Beans in Sours
I am sure you have all heard of the most famous Jelly Bean brand - Jelly Belly, right? Lets be honest, if you like jelly beans you must love Jelly Belly. This £2.50 packet contains 100 grams of their tasty sour flavoured jelly beans! Totally addictive. I love sour sweets more than anything so I cant wait to eat these!

Brioche Pasquier Pain Au Lait With Chocolate Chips
This is probably the most exciting product in the box for me this Month, and I will be honest in saying these lasted about 2 days after we received the box! Pain au Lait is delicious but with the addition of the dark chocolate chips, it makes it a real treat, particularly for a perfect start to the day as breakfast. Costing just £1.60 a pack, they are great value for money.

Sample Present: Bear Alphabites Cereal Letters
This is a nice little addition to this Months box, which comes in the form of crunchy cereal letters. I am a big fan of Bear products, and was thrilled to be able to try these out. They are really tasty and made with five grains and coconut blossom nectar. I imagine that these would be ideal for a healthy breakfast for both children and adults alike, as they contain no refined sugar, salt, are naturally high in calcium, and are low GI. I think I will have to pick up a box of these soon because they taste great!
