Degustabox - September 2016

Degustabox delivery day is always one of my favourite days of the month - nothing gets you through a tough day at work like an awesome delivery of exciting foodstuffs!

Overall, September's wasn't my favourite box - few things had me truly excited on opening this one - but I think that just speaks for the usual stands of the subscription because it was still full of some tip-top quality items:

Metcalfe's Popcorn Thins (RRP £1.00) - I've had these popcorn thins before and think they're lovely! I do prefer the milk chocolate version, but the dark chocolate makes me feel more like a grown up!

Get Fruity Bars (RRP £1.00) - I usually try to pass the fruit bars off on the kids, who don't always realise I'm fobbing them off with a 'healthy' treat, but neither of them like pineapple so I thought I'd try this one myself : actually very tasty and the pineapple, coconut and lime flavour combo is a winner!

Cape Drinks (RRP £1.59 each) - You know that anything tea in it usually goes down a treat with me - and the Cape drinks are no exception! These fruity drinks with anti-oxidant packed rooibos tea have added vitamins, ginseng and botanical extracts, but most importantly, they're delicious!

Teisseire Sirop (RRP £2.99) - This is definitely a fancier version of the squash I usually buy! No added sugar and a lovely unique flavour means this is popular with everyone in the house!

Cirio Borlotti Beans (RRP £1.89 for a pack of three) - I'll admit that I don't really know what to do with beans that haven't already been canned in tomato sauce ready to be heated and poured over toast. My brother cooks proper food though, and he's got some good suggestions for me! 

Mrs Crimble's Fusilli (RRP £1.99) - I generally love pasta but sadly no one in the house likes mushrooms so this one is wasted on us a bit, but I'll pass it on to a good home where it can be appreciated!

Miso Tasty Soup (RRP £3.65) - The spicy soup is the perfect thing to have in my cupboard at work for emergency lunch options, especially now that it's getting cold!

Hartley's Jelly Pots (4 x RRP £0.50) - Who doesn't like jelly? Well, apparently my kids don't, but that's ok, means I get to keep these cute lil jelly pots to myself! My favourite is the tropical flavour!

Say Yes to No Bread Chips (RRP £1.49) - I wasn't particularly excited about these as I've had toasted bread snacks before that have just been really dry and tasteless, but these were actually pretty nice - thinner than ones I've had previously these tasted more like thick crisps. But breadier.

Chia Seed (2 x RRP £1.00) - I know Chia Seeds are all the rage with healthy types, as they're a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. These are really easy to add to other foods for a non-intrusive nutritious boost!

The value of the goods inside the box always outweighs it's £12.99 per month subscription cost, but if that's not enough of a bargain you can save a whopping £7 off the cost of your first box if you enter the code BLDEG15 on checking out. It's a great way to discover new brands and products, and is always fun to open and see what each box contains!


  1. I still REALLY need to get these regularly. They look great xx

  2. I really like fruit bars so that would be right up my street!



Comments are like tea and cake, they sustain me
