Degustabox August 2015



If you have a love for biscuit time, then you’ll love the August Degustabox, it’s full of sweet treats as well as some interesting drinks. Let’s see what was in it, shall we?

Life Tonics Hydration Plus

These look amazing, I love coconut water and these drinks come in 3 great flavours – Coconut & Mint, Dalandan Orange and Elderbery & Jupiter.

It’s a coconut water based drink enriched with natural fruit extracts, vitamins and minerals with no refined sugars or artificial sweeteners.

£1.49 each

I’m already a fan of Ryvita, great for an healthier alternative to a sandwich or toast.

I also love anything sesame seed, it’s so good!

Bahlsen Pick Up! Dark Chocolate and Choco Leibniz White

Degustabox feature Bahlsen products often, I’m pretty sure we’ve had the Pick Ups in the box before, but the Choco Leibniz White are new and look amazing.

It’s white chocolate wrapped around a crips cocoa biscuit! Yum.

This box of Penne Rigate is made in Italy. Did you know that the angled ends and ridges of Penne pasta hold the sauce? It kind of makes sense now!

The Arrabbiata sauce is made with 100% Italian tomatos and has no added preservatives.

I’m dying to try this with some cheese chucked on top. Hello, carb loading!

£1.50 and £1

Delicious Alchemy Oaty Cooking Mix

This is gluten and dairy free – makes 10 golden cookies and is packed with wholesome oats.

There’s nothing quite like freshly baked cookies, right?

Dr Oetker Mug Cake 

OMG. Add milk and this to a cup and put in the microwave for 1 minute 10 seconds. Then you have a mug cake.

Pity I don’t have a microwave 🙁

Walkers Biscuits

How cute are these little individual packets of biscuits? Perfect for an on the go snack! Thinking of taking them on holiday with me for the journey 🙂

Williamson Tea

I’ve not heard of this brand before, but Ginger Grove is an uplifting and warming tea.

It has real ginger pieces and would be perfect with the biscuits!

Added extras:

Sometimes the guys at Degustabox chuck in some added extras from previous boxes which I guess they have left over! Little Miracles Drinks from the January Degustabox, Fruit Snax from the July Degustabox and Scheckters Organic Energy from the April Degustabox.

    This box looks okay to me because I’m not a huge fan of biscuits and much rather see more full meals like pasta and pasta sauce. Still it’s a good food subscription.

    The microwave mug cake – what a great idea!!!! I’ve made the old fashioned chocolate one from scratch in the microwave, but I’ve never branched out into anything more fancy.

    Shame you don’t have a microwave – it would be fun to try! 🙂

    Dammit why did I cancel my Degusta box subscription – the biscuit theme would have been right up my street 🙁
