I’ve actually become quite fond of DegustaboxUK as it’s constantly allowing me to try new things. Being such a picky eater, it’s excellent for me to try things first, without feeling I am wasting money on something I won’t later eat. The February DegustaboxUK seems to be full of snacks & treats this month. There was even a bottle of wine!
Willy Chase’s Fit Popcorn RRP £1.99-£2.19 – This Salted Honey is one of five flavours you could have received in your February Degustabox. These are gluten-free – great news for me as someone who has a gluten intolerance. Also only 107 cals per serving. I do like popcorn and these were nice. In all honesty though, it just tasted like salted popcorn. I couldn’t really taste the honey at all.
Bebeto Candy Crush RRP £1.69 – As the name suggest, these candies are fun candies based on the Candy Crush game. I do like stuff like this. These were fruity, fun and had a lot of flavour. I wasn’t 100% keen on all the candies, I preferred some over others. They are a mixed fruit flavour jelly.
Bebeto Cheese Cake Jelly Gums RRP £1.69 – Another fun bag of gummy candies to share from Bebeto. These are cheesecake shaped jelly candies with real fruit juice. Both of the Bebeto share bags are DegustaboxUK’s product of the month too.
Maui and Sons Dark Chocolate Coated Banana Chips RRP £ 1.00 – These banana chips make a healthier gluten-free snack choice. The banana chips are cooked in coconut oil and then coated in dark Belgian chocolate. They are crunchy tasty. Something different to snack on. Also Vegan and preservative free.
Koko Dairy Free Original RRP £1.50 – This is a milk alternative made from freshly pressed coconut milk. It’s free from lactose and soya and it has added Calcium and Vitamins D2 & B12. With fewer calories than skimmed milk you can substitute this where ever you would use milk. This was not for me but the rest of my family enjoyed it.
Just Bee Honey Water ‘Blueberry’ RRP £1.49 – This is a simple refreshing alternative to plain water. It has only 49 calories, no refined sugar and nothing artificial. Simply water, juice from blueberries and a hint of lemon juice. Just Bee was created by a family of British beekeepers. I really liked this and it’s a great choice for hydration for those that don’t like drinking plain water.
Blossom Hill Fruit Bloom ‘Hints of Elderflower’ RRP £4.99 – You could have received this or the Summer Fruits flavour in your February DegustaboxUK. Sadly due to my medication I couldn’t actually try this – no alcohol for me. I was assured it was really lovely when chilled. It was fruity and it certainly did have light bubbles in it.
Double Dutch Mixer ‘Pomegranate & Basil’ RRP £1.19 – This was very different. Probably great for someone who loves to mix different drinks and cocktails. Really not something I liked though. The only mixer I really enjoy is Ginger Ale.
Often considered to be a superfood, pomegranate has a complex flavour profile that straddles sweet and tart but also offers a tannin note that brings body and structure to cocktails. Basil, in the anise family, has always been renowned for lifting acidic flavours such as tomatoes and in a soft drink its peppery top note is a superb counterbalance to pomegranate, delivering a complex, exotic mid-taste that supports rather than overwhelming a mixed drink – Double Dutch Drinks Website
Kabuto Rice Noodles RRP £1.99 – A quick and easy snack if you’re in a rush. I can’t eat anything with peppers in it due to an intolerance but a family member had this and said it was really tasty. Full of flavour and super easy to prepare. It is made with authentic quality Asian ingredients, no preservatives or additives either.
New York Delhi’s Americanos RRP £1.00 – Quality, roasted Guatemalan coffee beans covered in dark chocolate and ready to eat. I don’t like coffee, so I didn’t try these. It’s funny as I really like the smell of coffee. I just don’t like the taste. Others did try them though. They had quite a strong, intense flavour and weren’t really that they liked too much. If you love coffee and dark chocolate, I am sure you would love these though!
Heinz Beans No Added Sugar RRP £0.65 x 2 – I’ve loved beans on toast since I was little and I still love it. I have tried the NAS ones before and I wasn’t too keen on the taste. This is a new recipe though and I’m glad to say, it is much improved.
Diablo No Added Sugar Cream Filled Milk Chocolate Wafer RRP £0.95 – This is quite a tasty wafer bar. It’s full of flavour but free of any added sugar, so no need to feel so guilty eating one of these.
Coldpress ‘Berry Beets’ RRp £ 2.79 – One of two flavours you could have received. Crammed with natural fruit and vegetable juices and lower in naturally occurring sugars too. I cannot stand beetroot BUT I did try this. I really wanted to love it and it did have a mostly fruity taste. The after taste however, had this kind of beetroot tang to it. Love the idea, but would love to try a different flavour than this one.
Peppersmith Dental Mints OR Dental Chewing Gum RRP £1.50 ea – I really liked both of these. They were fresh, minty and actually quite strong and a bonus being sugar-free. You would have received one of these in your February DegustaboxUK.
Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar RRP £6.95 500ml – There was a free gift sample of this apple cider vinegar too. I know this has a lot of health benefits and many people actually take a shot of apple cider vinegar each day. Seriously google apple cider vinegar and you will find a whole host of things that it has been proven to be beneficial for.
Overall Thoughts About The February DegustaboxUK
