As you might know, I've been lucky enough to be reviewing Degustabox recently. And it's fast becoming my most-favourite treat to look forward to each month.
I love the element of surprise and, for £12.95 a month, it's pretty decent value considering what you get. My favourite part, as I mentioned in my review of last month's Degustabox, is being inspired to try something new, and rustle up a new recipe.
So what was in this month's box?
Little Miracles Organic Tea - £1.39 per bottle
I've actually tried one of these before and they aren't too bad at all. I like mine ice-cold and they are great as a pick-me-up. I definitely preferred the Green Tea, Ginseng, Pomengrate, Açai and Agave flavour, as I wasn't keen the on ingredients of the other one so much. They are a low cal energy alternative, but I would probably stick to water and fresh fruit if the need hit.
Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Mint Thins - £2.50
Oh these were one of my favourite items this month! Anything with mint and chocolate in makes me think of Christmas for some reason. These were a really posh-feeling after-dinner-mint and they were nice and crisp and thin and I loved them. So much so that I made cookies with them. Recipe coming soon!
John Crabbie’s Scottish Raspberry with a twist of Ginger - £1.20
John Crabbie's Alcoholic Fruits Zesty Lemon - £1.50
I was really excited by these, especially the Alcoholic Fruits one as it seemed a really lovely bit different idea. I liked this one best, as, while I love raspberry, I'm just not a massive ginger fan. The ginger was quite fiery and I imagine most would love it, but for me, I wanted more raspberry tang.
La Vieja Fabrica Marmalade - £1.59
I am currently saving this for the weekend, to have with some slices of wholemeal toast and a brew. I love marmalade - it reminds me of my grandparents and having breakfast when we used to stay over at their house as children. I've smelt this and my goodness it smells amazing.
Jordans Simply Granola - £2.69
I love granola. I really do. And this stuff was amazing. I love the recipe idea that came with the Degustabox, involving Overnight Oats. I definitely want to try that, but I'll have to buy some more of these first as I absolutely guzzled them for breakfast at work. And that's rare for me as I usually get quite bored of cereal very quickly.
Bahlsen Pick Up! - £1.69
These have become quite the staple in our cupboard - William loves them. And I must admit I have dunked one in a brew. I love that they are filled with chocolate rather than a cream. It's different and actually less messy for little ones too!
Burts Lentil Weaves - £0.69 per pack
Oh I loved these. So much so that I've actually bought a multipack from Waitrose already. They are light and have a really lovely flavour. With three flavours - Sweet Chilli, Sour Cream and Lightly Salted - they were enjoyed by by us all. I liked the Lightly Salted flavour best and I was really impressed to see a lower cal, gluten free alternative to crisps.
Carnation Cook With It! - £1.65
I was really confused by this at first - I assumed it was some sort of dessert or drink. But they are actually a lower-fat alternative to cream and can be kept in the cupboard for whenever the moment strikes. Considering I am trying to lose weight, I'm quite intrigued to see what I can come up with!
So that's it! I can't wait for the next box to come, and if you'd like to order one, you can get £3.00 off your first box with the code below:
