Ah, some festive cheer in the shape of these bottles of cider from The Good Cider. You get two lovely fruity flavours, Wild Berry with blackcurrant and cranberries, and Strawberry-Lime, which is fruity and tangy. I can’t drink myself, due to medication but I was told these were really lovely and best serve chilled. Full of fruity, flavour and a delicious cider. RRP £1.50 each

DegustaboxUK November 016

A drink I can try; J2O Glitterberry. I’m not sure you can see but there is an abundance of edible gold glitter in this drink. This fruity Grape and Cherry spiced drink definitely sparkles and makes a really great alcohol free alternative drink over the festive season. RRP £2.49 (£4.00 multipack of 4)

DegustaboxUK November 016

A very festive flavoured tea, this Ahmad Tea Ltd ‘Pear, Cinnamon Strudel Tea’ is perfect for winter. You get one of 6 flavours from this range in your November DegustaboxUK. They are dessert inspired recipes, infused in black and green teas, and no need to feel guilty because they are sugar-free too. A really nice change from regular tea and great for me because I only drink fruit teas. RRP £4.00

Next is a sweet little treat. Michel et Augustin 4 Cookie Squares. I wasn’t so keen on these. I didn’t really like the chocolate part and I just wasn’t overly impressed by them. Others in the house really liked them though, so it’s all down to individual taste. They are just cookies crisp little golden cookie squares with a center filling of dark chocolate, and a sprinkle of sea salt. RRP £0.89

DegustaboxUK November 016

Now, I do usually enjoy crisps but I didn’t like these Pipers Crisp Co Wild Thyme & Rosemary crisps. Nothing against the crisps themselves, they were lovely and crunchy, as a crisp should be. I just didn’t like the flavour because I don’t like Thyme or Rosemary. Definitely not to my liking, at all. I am sure people who enjoy herby tastes would love these though. RRP £2.00

Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps – These are buttery and crispy and remind me very much of stroopwafels. They taste extremely similar to me. These would be perfect with tea or coffee but personally I’d use them with ice cream instead of a wafer. RRP £ 1.19

DegustaboxUK November 016

Sadly, I can’t eat black pepper due to a food intolerance because I usually love crackers. You receive one of two flavours of these this month. Low in fat, low in sugar and high in protein and fibre, these Ryvita Cracked Black Pepper Crackers are a healthier choice than a regular cracker. They’d go great with your favourite cheeses over Christmas. RRP £1.29

DegustaboxUK November 016

I’m not doing very well this box lol Again, I can’t use this Christian Potier Sauce myself due to the pepper but I know someone in the house will make good use of it. You get 3 x 50g sachets of sauce that are quick and easy to use. They only take 10 seconds to heat up in the microwave. No fuss, no mess and no waste. Just one sachet to one plate. It’s natural, no preservatives, no artificial colours or flavours either. You would receive one of three available flavours in your box. RRP £2.50

The last item for this months DegustaboxUK is this Broderick’s Crunchy Slam Dunk Peanut Chunk – try saying that fast! This has whole roasted peanuts, rice krispies, Belgian chocolate topped with a thick layer of chunky peanut butter plus its topped with a marbled layer of Belgian white and milk chocolate. As you can see, it’s very thick and really full of peanuts and krispies. My son ate this and said it was really delicious. I think he was hoping there was more than one, as he really enjoyed it. RRP£1.20

 

Overall Thoughts

I really enjoy this box each month. Even if there is something that I can’t personally eat, I know it won’t go to waste because one of my kids will eat it, so it’s great for families to try out too.
