February Degustabox Review and Giveaway

healthy breakfast
I’m still doing the healthy eating thing and I’ve lost a bit more weight. Winner.
On Tuesday evening I was enjoying a breakfast of grapes and mandarin, with coffee in my Tardis mug when there was a knock at my door. There stood a man holding a box with my name on it.
It was the Degustabox that I was very kindly sent to review!
Degustabox is one of those monthly subscription boxes where you get a selection of products to try out. You get 10-15 food products and it costs £12.99 including postage and packaging, which is a fab price as the 14 items I was sent would have totalled £22.52 had I bought them separately.  
I have a discount code for y’all so you can try it too! £3 off when you register with Degustaxbox:
£3 off discount code: ARIMK
OK, enough of the babble, let’s get to the box!
The products come in this adorable packaging tucked inside some brown paper. There were also some coupons on the product listing on top, but I removed these for photo purposes 😉degustabox

 Here’s what I got:

ryvita thin bites

Ryvita Thin Bites:

I got two flavour of these, Sweet Chilli and Cheddar & Black Pepper. They are a great healthy option to crisps and have only 80 Calories per serving! Each bag contains around 5 servings.
£1.89 each.

soreen, toastie loaf, lunchbox loave

Soreen Toastie Loaf and Soreen Banana Lunchbox Loaves:

I am a massive Soreen fan! I only started eating Soreen when I went to uni, a friend and I used to go mental about it. If you’ve ever tried the traditional Soreen loaves that are not cut, you’ll understand how tricky it is to slice without squashing the whole loaf down and being left with an odd shaped piece! This pre-sliced loaf means you don’t have to struggle with that anymore and is perfect for posting. I’ve never toasted Soreen before, I usually have it un-toasted with butter so I’m looking forward to trying it in the toaster.
£1.39 each.

The Lunchbox loaves are a great on he go snack, they are only 95 calories per slice and bursting with banana piece and puree. These two items mean my breakfast is basically sorted for the next week or so!
£1.35 each.

scheckters organic energy

Scheckters Organic Energy:

Powered by nature is the slogan of these drinks. They are the worlds first 100% natural, organic, vegetarian, FairTrade, Informed Sport certified drink. A much better way to boost energy levels than drinks such as Red Bull and Monster. I was sent an original one and a lite version. I’m interested to find out what these taste like.
£1.35 each.

english provender

English Provender Damson & Port Chutney and Recurrent Sauce with Rosemary:

This luxury Chutney is described as perfect with creamy camembert and stilton. I feel another wine and cheese night coming on!
£2 each.

I’ve never tried a sauce like this with meat, but the thought of it with lamb is making my mouth water. I just need to trick a housemate into cooking for me now.. 
£1.60 each. 

tyrrells, apple crisps

Tyrrell’s Apple Crisps:

I received 2 ‘proudly plain’ packets and a packet of ‘smashingly cinnomony’. I love the cute packaging and that they use the whole apple so nothing goes to waste – even the peel! Another healthier alternative to Crisps. I hope they taste as nice as they look.
£1.15 each.

pick up, bahslen, waffeletten

Bahlsen Pick Up and Waffeletten:

The new Pick UP bars by Bahlsen are a great snack, they are individually wrapped so you can just pop it in your bag and go.
£1.60 each.

Bahlsen Waffeletten look like a bit of a luxury treat – half dipped in dark chocolate, these crispy rolled treats look like they would be perfect with a coffee after dinner.

peppadew piquante peppers

Peppadew Piquante Peppers:

These peppers can be eaten as snacks, which drinks or an ingredient. I’ve recently acquired a extreme fondness of olives and antipasti’s type food, especially in salads. I can see myself (or Lilly) chopping these up and mixing them in a salad.
£3 Each.

 The box also contained a leaflet telling you the value and about each item, as well two recipe cards that give you ideas to use some of the products with. 

There were also some additional leaflets telling you about some of the products in more details, and coupons worth £4.05 with savings off some of the products or brands.
