With Christmas almost upon us you can imagine my excitement when I was told this months Degustabox was the "Christmas" box and I couldn't wait to see what goodies were inside!
Incase you haven't heard of Degustabox before they are a monthly food/drink subscription box costing £12.99 per month(or £6.99 with the discount code on this page!). Each month a box full of food and drink items is delivered to your door for you to try. There may be brands you have heard of before and some will be brand new to you.
Here is what was inside our box this month -
Ryvita Crispy Crackers and Ryvita Thins
Inside this months box there were 2 products from Ryvita, the thins which are perfect for dipping and dunking with a dip or your choice and the crackers which are fantastic for topping with toppings like chutney or cheese! Both would make a great addition to any buffet style lunch or cheese platter.
These Vanilla and Caramel flavoured drops were an interested addition to the box this month and something totally new to me. They come in a handy pack and you can add a few drops in to cold drinks, hot drinks or even alcohol!
If like me you are always in a rush in the morning you will adore these new Belvita soft bakes! I love finding breakfast items in my box as its one meal I struggle to fit in so these offer up some ideas for me to try. These soft bakes are made with five wholegrains and rich in cereals, offering a great source of fibre and containing vitamin B6, magnesium and Iron these are a great way to start the day.
When it comes to popcorn your choice is usually sweet or salty, not anymore as Butterkist bring you salted caramel popcorn! Trying new flavours like this is part of the reason I love receiving the Degustabox.
Branston Orchard fruit chutney is the perfect accompaniment to all of those Christmas leftovers. Bramley apples are blended with sultanas, orange zest and spices to create the unique flavour of Orchard fruit chutney. I loved the tangy slightly sweet taste of this chutney and will certainly be adding it to our Christmas leftovers this year.
Nims Fruit Crisps
I am always looking for healthier alternatives to standard crisp and these fruit crisp may be just what I was looking for. Nims crisp are made in the UK and are 100% fruit crisps that are sliced and dried to perfection to create a moreish crisp snack. Whats even better is that they also count as 1 of your 5 a day, they are also high in fibre and Vitamin C.
Two words... Glittery Jelly!! Whats not to love. The kids were so excited to try this and it really works as soon as you add the water to make up the jelly you can see the fine glittery shimmer in the jelly. Also inside the box was Hartleys Black cherry jelly which has a lovely rich cherry flavour which went lovely with vanilla ice cream.
Bourne and Wallis Pickles
With Christmas almost here lots of us will be using up left over turkey and meats and these Bourne and Wallis range of Pickles make a fantastic accompaniment to the table. We received the baby beetroot which my husband said was delicious.
Divine Chocolate is a favourite of mine as they offer such a wide range of the more "grown up" flavour chocolate and as its quite rich a little goes a long way. I received the 70% dark chocolate with rasperberries in this box and it was amazing! Rich dark chocolate with a tang of sweet raspberry whats not to love!? All Divine products are fairtrade, natural and free from palm oil.
I am a big fan already of Rekorderlig cider so I was over the moon to find this in my box. Rekorderlig dry apple is the latest creation from the House of Rekorderlig. It throws a modern twist to a much loved classic and offers a delicious crisp apple flavour which is really refreshing.
Food Thoughts Cocoa Powder
I adore baking especially now the Christmas season is here so I have even more reason to do it, so when I discovered the Food Thoughts organic Fairtrade 100% cocoa powder in my box I knew it would come in handy. This cocoa powder is described as for better baking and is non alkalised and gluten free.
As you can see there were lots of delicious treats in this box! My personal favourite had to be the glittery jelly I mean who doesn't love glittery jelly!? This months box offered a great range to try and the rrp of the products was almost double the value of the £12.99 price.
