I cannot believe this Year is near the end! Winter is fast approaching and I am seriously excited for Christmas now. I have thoroughly enjoyed having a Degustabox the last few Months and the Winter box was probably the box I have been most excited about and anticipating... we all know how crazy I am over festivities (and of-course the food that goes with it!) so I was really eager to see what was included in the Winter box.
If you don't know what Degustabox* is, it is basically a Monthly surprise subscription service, where you pay £12.99 per box and receive 9-14 food and drink products which are usually new on the market or things you might not normally pick up on your food shop! I really like the concept of Degustabox, as it has certainly got me and my family creating new and different meals we would never normally cook, by using things we have received in the box. The price of a Monthly box works out much cheaper than if you bought the individual items seperately, too.
You can use my code 0U7A0 to receive a generous £3 off your bill when you purchase a Degustabox! That makes the box only £9.99!
Lets take a peak in the Winter Degustabox!
Salsa & Mesquite Kettle Chips
I love Kettle Chips, they are so addictive. I have never tried this flavour before but they sound delicious. I think we will probably be saving these for a buffet around Christmas time as they are always a hit! Kettle Chips are available from most supermarkets, costing around £2.19 per pack.
Cool Dawn Recovery Drinks
I think that these Cool Dawn Discovery Drinks sound really cool! They are a herbal detox drink which aim to prevent bad hangovers. With Winter and Christmas parties just around the corner, I am sure that these would be useful! I haven't tried these yet but I am looking forward to seeing how they work. Watch this space!
Lindt Lindor My Melting Moment
Lindt Lindor are in my opinion the very best kind of chocolate, so I was thrilled to see a handful of the 'My Melting Moment' chocolates in my box. These taste amazing and I can not wait to start munching on these at Christmas! They cost just 65 pence per chocolate.
Kent's Kitchen Flavour Shots in Garlic and Coriander
Flavour Shots are a great way to add flavour to meals. I really love the sound of this flavour, and may possibly use this with chicken in a wrap or with pasta. Costing just £1.85, I think these are a great way to spruce some spice into regular every day meals.
Branston Caramalised Chutney
This is definitely my least favourite product in the box, I just simply don't like the taste of chutney! I know this will be appreciated by someone else in the family, just not by me.
Pip Organic Drinks in Cloudy Apple
These taste really delcious! Pip Organic Drinks are well - known for their award winning range of pure and organic smoothies and juices. Cloudy Apple tastes sweet but also very fresh! I am intrigued to try more of the range.
Montano Italian Cider
Cider is a great drink for the colder Months, it really puts me in a festive mood! (of-course drinking responsibly). Montano Cider is an elegantly crafted Italian cider so I am really eager to trying this and seeing how it tastes. Montano recommend drinking this with an Italian meal, which I may have to do the next time I have spaghetti bolognaise.
I have never heard of this brand before but I am so looking forward to cooking a curry with these very soon. The flavours are very up my street and I can't wait to try them! We love korma and madras in our house, so these are perfect for us! I may share some photographs on my blog if you'd like to see?
Holy Cow are authentic Indian curries which are made from natural ingredients and contain no srtificial colours or persvatives. They are also gluten free and suitable for vegeterians and coeliacs.
Sample Present: Drink Me Chai Spiced Chai Latte
I have actually tried this before and I really, really love it! I like chai tea and have tried a few different products from the brand so I can't wait to drink this. It tastes just that little bit more spicy which adds great taste to the chai latte. I would definitely recommend this to pretty much anyone!
Once again I really am impressed with the variety and the selection of products. All apart from the chutney I either absolutely love or I am really excited to try! A few of the products will probably by kept aside for Christmas and celebrations over Winter (the Cider, Chocs and Kettle Chips!) but I know everything else will be consumed pretty quickly. I feel the majoirty of the products are real Winter Warmer foods and drinks - as well as some of the products being really good for you, too.
