DegustaBox November 2017

Friday, November 24, 2017
I've absolutely loved receiving the DegustaBox over the past few months and the November box is no different! Each months box contains between 10 to 15 food, drink and snack items which I think is fantastic considering the super low price and if you use the discount code KVAA2 it will make the box only £5.99 instead of £12.99.

The November box, to me, seems like one of the most diverse that I've received so far as it contains sweets, chocolate and snacks as well as meal extras, healthier options, breakfast items and a couple of more unusual products such as aloe vera juice!

*Taylors Of Harrogate Cacao Superior Colombia Ground Coffee (£4.49, 229g)
Let's start with one of the most exciting items in the box, in my opinion and one of the most beautifully packaged too. I love coffee, I drink it at least one a day so this item is perfect for me especially as I've recently received a lovely pour over coffee maker from Coffee Gator which you can see in my Foodie Gift Guide. It has berry, floral and chocolate flavours which sounds a little odd but I can't wait to try it!
*Filippo Berio Fennel & Garlic Crostini
As I'm an ambassador I receive items from other boxes that you wouldn't usually receive so I received three Filippo Berio items but you will only receive one of the three. These crostini, which seem like mini bruschetta, sound so delicious and they'd be a great snack for dipping or as mini bruschetta for Christmas or new year party appetisers.

*Planters Fruity Chocolate Crunch (£2, 225g)
Unlike some of the other boxes, this one contains quite a few healthier options such as this massive bag that includes peanuts, milk chocolate buttons, jumbo raisins and sliced cranberries. The first thing I thought of after reading the packet was how great it would be to add to cookies, muffins or porridge/granola! I might make some Christmas cookies with this selection of nuts, chocolate and dried fruit.

*The English Provender - Caramalised Red Onion Chutney (£1.99, 325g)
I actually already have this product in my kitchen, although it's only half empty now so it's great to have another. I included this chutney within one of my recently Christmas gift guides so you can check it out if you want to see more from this brand and gift ideas. They're great gift options and they are perfect for the festive season.
*Cadbury Picnic Bites (£1.99)
I do love chocolate bars from time to time but one that I've never tried is the Cadbury Picnic bar! The Picnic bar contains a crisp wafer, chewy caramel, peanuts, raisins and Cadbury milk chocolate - I'm not sure that it sounds like something I'd love but I'll definitely try them - they are new! One thing I love about these boxes is that a lot of the items are new to the market.

*Weetabix Additions - Apple & Raisins (£2.99)
A couple of months ago, I received the coconut and raisin version of the Weetabix Additions and I love them - I finished the box a week or two ago so I'm glad I have a new option to try. I didn't know if I would like the coconut and raisin option but I know I'll love this apple and raisin variation!
*The Jelly Bean Factory - Super Sours (£1.79, 113g)
I was ready for disappointment when I read the ingredients as usually jelly beans aren't suitable for vegetarians but these are! I couldn't even wait to take the photos before opening the packet...oops. I love the blue raspberry, cola, orange and lemon flavours the most. It would make a great stocking filler - a DegustaBox subscription would also make an amazing, thoughtful and practical christmas gift especially for students.

*Ryvita Rye Cakes - Multigrain (£1.39)
I haven't tried Ryvita products for so long but I used to like them so I'm interested to give these a go especially as they are wholegrain, high in fibre, there's only 23 calories per 'cake' and 1.2g of fat which is pretty good.

*Filippo Berio Classic Pesto
You might not know this about me but pasta is my favourite food of all time and one of my favourite pasta sauces includes pesto as it's so incredibly delicious. Sadly this one contains cheese that isn't suitable for vegetarians but it's definitely inspired me to make my own today! Currently drooling...
*Dalston's Hand Mashed Fizzy Apple Drink (£1.89, 275ml)
This month's box doesn't contain any alcohol which is definitely fine with me as this one is so delicious! It's handmade in London using Jonafold, Idared and Bramley apples so it's moreish and not too fizzy.

*Alo Light (£1.99, 500ml)
Now onto one of the most unusual items in this box and it's aloe vera juice with cucumber and melon. I don't think I've tried an aloe vera based drink before and I'm a little hesitant. It's crafted in the San Fransisco Bay Area and contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron and Calcium.
*Kallo Organic Chicken Stock Pots (£1.80)
I received the chicken option but you could have received beef or vegetable in your box. It's an item I won't be using as I'm a vegetarian but I will definitely pass it onto a friend who will. I do love this brand, especially their vegetable and mushroom stock cubes, both of which I'd definitely recommend.

*Rio Mare Tuna in Olive Oil (£3,160g)
Another item I won't be using, I've never liked tuna even when I wasn't a vegetarian but I know that my mum will definitely use it - probably for lunches. It's an Italian brand and the fish is line caught which is more sustainable which is something!

*Propercorn Perfectly Sweet Popcorn (89p)
Last but not least is one of my favourite items from the box as I adore popcorn and this brand is one of my favourites! I love popcorn as a quick, easy and low calorie/fat snack. This one is fair-trade which makes it even better and I've already had to buy more...

If you like the look of this box then use the code: KVAA2 to get it for only £5.99 which is an amazing discount!

What do you think of the November Degustabox? Will you be taking advantage of the discount code?
