October Degustabox

Solo Marshmallow Creme

DSC_0737This has to be one of the most exciting things I’ve ever gotten in a Degustuabox. Apart from alcohol. Alcohol is always exciting.

This is a spreadable marshmallow treat that you can use for baking, or eat straight out of tub.

It reminds me of the type of thing you’d spoon into your mouth straight from the tub when your boyfriend has broken up with you and you don’t feel like getting an ice-cream headache. Yes please!

You can get them from American Soda, as well as a bunch of other wonderful American food and drink.


Brioche Pasquier Slice Loaf  // Pain Au Lait


These brioche treats are great for on the go, for breakfast or just a fun nibble.

The loaf is pre-sliced and the pain au lait contains chocolate chips for a yummy snack.

Brioche Loaf £1.69
Pain Au Lait £1.60

Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce


I don’t really know if this needs much introduction. I’ve bought this myself many times.  I love smoothing salmon with it before oven baking and it’s great for wraps.


Special K Cracker Crisp


Help. Last time I bought a packet of these, I sat and at the whole pack in one go. Then I probably moaned how fat I am while wondering why I can’t lose weight. Lightbulb moment..

These have 60% less fat than normal crisps and come in a variety of flavours:

  • BBQ
  • sea salt and balsamic vinegar
  • sour cream and onion
  • sweet chilli

You can find them in most supermarkets and I often see them on a promotion for £1 or 2 for £2.


Dr Oetker Extra Dark Chocolate // Fine Dark Cocoa Powder


This dark chocolate contains 90% cocoa solids and is made from single origin Ghanaian cocoa beans – it sounds so rich and intense. Perfect for melting and using in baking.

The cocoa powder comes in 3 measured packs to make it simple to use in your home baking adventures.

Cocoa Powder: £1.89
Dark Chocolate: £2.49

Getbuzzing Original Nutty Bar


Getbuzzing is a new brand to me – it offers a range of 100% healthy eating snacks that provide a slow release of energy to keep you going.

See Getbuzzing for more info.


Enhance Drinks


I love these – highly concentrated flavour for water. It’s a tiny bottle of fruity flavour to add to your water.

They’re perfect for carrying around and also it’s a 1 litre bottle of liquid less you have to cart home with the rest of your shopping if you buy this instead of normal cordial.


Jelly Belly


Who doesn’t love Jelly Belly? With the massive range of flavours, there’s something to please everyone. I love the cinnamon and candyf loss ones!

This selection is full of the sour ones to make your squirm.


Bear Paws


This is a delicious snack of fruit shapes, aimed at children it’s perfect for lunch boxes, car rides or a trip to the park.


Kent’s Kitchen Bengal Meal Kit


Now this perked my interest – a 3 step meal kit ready with, herbs and paste.

Just add a few fresh ingredients to make a lovely dish. You can get other flavours in the range:

  • chilli con carne
  • tikka masala
  • firecracker sweet & sour
  • spicy korma
  • jalfrazi


Benecol Greek Style  


This months box saw the return of the Degustabox Fridge – a coupon to pick up an item for free.

Benecol Greek Yogurts are great for lowering cholesterol and come in packs of 4 of varying flavours.

Sample Present : Alphabites


A single service of Alphabites was featured in this months box. These was a full box sent in June’s box.
