So, the Degusta Box December 2020 was a little bit different in that it was in partnership with Sainsbury’s. Which, I believe is a first for Degusta Box. The box features a selection of brands that are all available at Sainsbury’s.
Now, if you are new here and have never heard of Degusta Box UK I’ll quickly explain what it is.
Degusta Box UK is a monthly subscription box that contains between 10-15 items each month, most of which are new to the market. You can read some of my reviews for previous boxes here. It costs £12.99 per month. You can also find a discount at the end of the post. So, that means you’ll pay just £9.99 for your first box!
Degusta Box December 2020 Theme & Contents
What’s in the Box?: Drinks
Good Earth Tea 15s (rrp £2.75) is a really great tasting herbal tea. It’s a year younger than me but I agree with Good Earth in that if you were born in the 1970s you’ve got no chance of coming out boring!
Dash Peach Water (rrp £1.25). A really refreshing drink infused with wonky fruit! No sugar, no sweeteners and no calories either!
Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica Tropical IPA 5.5% ABV (rrp £2.00) Pineapples, mangoes, passionfruit and peach are crushed, squeezed and twisted into a delicious IPA! Loved this drink so so much!
Nexba Pineapple Soft Drink 1 Litre (rrp £1.25) Absolutely loved this pineapple drink and BIG bonus that it has no sugar and no artificial sweeteners either. It’s also 100% vegan too.
What’s in the Box?: Sweet Treats
Tony’s Chocolonely® (rrp £1.35) is making it their mission to make all chocolate 100% slave free. Very delicious creamy chocolate!
What’s in the Box?: Savoury Treats
Brave Sweet Chilli Roasted Chickpeas (rrp £1.00). You would have received 1 of 3 available flavours in the Degusta Box December 2020 box. I got the Sweet Chilli ones. Great snack alternative. Crunchy and moreish and packed with protein too!
LEON Aioli (rrp £2.50) is a natural, vegan garlic mayo. Not one for me as I hate garlic and can’t stand mayonnaise! lol, They use aquafaba, a chickpeas stock, instead of eggs to make it, ergo it’s vegan.
Odysea Aubergine Meze Dip (rrp £2.15) is one dip that you won’t need to keep in the fridge, well, not until you open it that is! No one has tried this yet and I don’t like aubergines either, so I can’t say how it tastes. It’s based on a traditional Greek recipe though and is made with roasted aubergines, extra virgin olive oil, garlic and parsley.
Pipers Lye Cross Cheddar & Onion Crisps (rrp £1.20 40g / £2.50 150g) are really yummy! Lovely strong cheese & onion flavour, oh so crunchy and just a delicious crisp all round!
Peter’s Yard Sourdough Bites (rrp £2.00) are fermented slowly for 16hrs. Fantastically crunchy with a fab sour cream & chive flavour. Also, perfect for dipping!
Capsicana Mexicana Tomato and Chipotle Tinga Cooking Paste (rrp £1.30) are perfect for fajitas, BBQ marinades and more. Not something I would eat but the rest of the family did use it when they made fajitas, something they have at least a couple of times a month. It got a big thumbs up!
The Curators Cocoa Caramel Peanuts (rrp £1.20) are made with only four ingredients. Lightly caramelised and then dusted with cocoa powder and a pinch of salt. I’m usually only a fan of dry roasted peanuts but I have to say these converted me – absolutely delicious!!
My Thoughts on the Degusta Box December 2020
I am pretty sure that this is the first time that Degusta Box has partnered up with anyone for one of their boxes. This month’s box partnering with Sainsbury’s has a wide selection from small start-up brands and there may be some familiar brand names amongst the mix too. The only brand that I definitely know I have heard of is Pipers Crisps.
Stand out products for me in the December box were Pipers Lye Cross Cheddar & Onion crisps, Tiny Rebel Clwb Tropica Tropical IPA and Nexba Pineapple Soft Drink!
