Finally, I’ve got some energy to actually post! I feel like it’s been an age and it has but here I am bringing you my review of the February DegustaboxUK box! For anyone that may not have heard of DegustaboxUK before, it is a monthly subscription box featuring:-
” up to 15 delicious and full-size treats being delivered – free of charge – straight to your door every month. Not only do they come from some of your favourite brands, many of them are brand-new and haven’t even hit the shops yet. “
It’s a fantastic way to try out new items before you actually buy them. Great, eh?
Anyway, let’s take a look at the items that were in the February DegustaboxUK.
Indie Bay Snacks Pretzel Bites – RRP £ 2.49
These pretzel bites were pretty yummy, very tasty and extremely crunchy. They’re a good source of fibre and protein. These are the Sunflower ones. A really delicious snack and a single portion are under 100 calories too! I’m usually not a huge fan of pretzels, unlike most of my family but I have to say I really did enjoy these.
Tootsie Rolls Midgees – RRP £2.50
I think everyone has probably heard of Tootsie Rolls and even though I have known of them for years I have never had the opportunity to try these authentic American candy chews. However, I have to say that I was a little disappointed in the taste. I’m not sure I can even really describe it other than to say, it wasn’t what I was expecting and I didn’t like it. I guess I was expecting it to taste a bit toffee like but it didn’t. The rest of the family liked them though, so they didn’t go to waste.
Haribo Fruitlicious – RRP £1.29
Ah, you can’t really go wrong with Haribo, can you! These tasted fab and as I have Diabetes Type 2 I was thrilled that they have 30% less sugar. Still can only eat a couple but with less guilt now lol They are very fruity and I don’t think they tasted any different in comparison with those that don’t have reduced sugar. Loved all the flavours in them and would definitely purchase them myself.
Dr. Karg’s Organic Emmental Cheese & Pumpkin Seed Crispbread – RRP £2.00
These were very different from the type of crispbread I usually eat. I don’t like Pumpkin Seeds so I didn’t really enjoy those but I liked the flavour from the Emmental Cheese. They were very crispy and if you like pumpkin seeds I am sure you would really enjoy these. There’s a lot more to them than your average plain crispbread.
Primrose’s Kitchen Raw Beetroot & Ginger Muesli – RRP £4.99
This looks so pretty and tasty but it just wasn’t for me. I don’t like Beetroot or coconut and most muesli have nuts in them, which I am also not a fan of. I cannot fault all the healthy ingredients though, it’s just down to my own personal tastes that I didn’t like it. It’s handmade and also dehydrated slowly at low temperatures so all the flavours and nutrients are preserved.
True Nopal Cactus Water – RRP £3.49
I know a lot of people have gotten into drinking coconut water but that’s always been a big no no for me, as I really do not like coconut at all. So, when I saw this cactus water I thought maybe this could be something I would actually like. I drink a lot of bottled water but that can get a bit boring. This has a really subtle taste of berry, was refreshing and certainly was a nice alternative to just water. For me, it was a little on the expensive side though.
The Protein Ball Co Cherry & Almond – RRP £1.99
These are made from raw pitted dates, free-range egg white protein, sultanas and sour cherries. I’m intolerant to egg whites so I didn’t try these but the family loved them. You get 6 bite-size portions in each bag. They were really tasty and full of flavour according to my family.
Emily Crisps – RRP £0.99
I’ve actually tried Emily Crisps before and I found them too crispy. I love dried fruit, it’s one of my favourite snacks but I just don’t like fruit made into crisps. These had a nice flavour to them though and the rest of my family really enjoyed them but I just found them too crispy for my taste. They are a great alternative for crisps though.
KITKAT Chunky New York Cheesecake – RRP £0.65
This was really nice but just a teensy bit sickly sweet for me, I couldn’t eat the whole thing. The creamy cheesecake middle does taste like cheesecake though and is really nice but in this chunky version, it was just a little bit too much for me.
My Thoughts on the February DegustaboxUK
I hadn’t previously tried any of the products in this box, which is always nice. Even though there were a few items I didn’t like, I was, as always, impressed with the selection included. Besides, what I didn’t like, the rest of my family did – I don’t think they are as fussy as I am!
My favourite items were the Haribo Fruitilicious, second to those were the Indie Bay Snacks Pretzel Bites.
