DegustaBox - December 2017

Thursday, December 28, 2017
I am lucky enough to be a DegustaBox ambassador so I received their boxes every month; I also receive a couple of items from their other boxes (alcoholic drinks etc) that you might not received in your box. I have loved every single box, it's a food subscription box, so obviously I'm going to love it but sadly this is the last box for 2017.

Each months box contains between 10 to 15 food, drink and snack items which I think is fantastic considering the low price and if you use the discount code KVAA2 it will make the box £5.99 instead of £12.99.

*Sleep Well Drink (£1.75)
Let's start with one of the most unusual items I've received because it is a milk based drink that is supposed to help you sleep due to the valerian in it which is a traditional herb used for thousands of years. I adore the packaging and the drink itself tasted delicious (similar to something I had as a child but I can't put my finger on it). I think it did help me sleep and sleep through the night without waking up which is great!

*Robinsons Fruit Creations (£1.99)
I drink cordial or fruit juice all of the time as I cannot stand water on its own so this is perfect for me and I have the 'pear, blackcurrant and cherry' flavour which as with the previous drink is delicious. You could have received the one I did or there is another flavour that you could have received instead.

*San Miguel 0.0% (£3)
I drink very, very little and it's only really on social occasions so I'm so glad to see a non-alcoholic drink in the December box so it's perfect for the festive season or new year so those who want something different to drink can take part but without the alcohol!
*Planters Nut-Rition (£1.29 each)
I received another product from this brand in the November box and I did actually use them in a Christmas cookie mix I made as well as little snacks over Christmas. This month I received two packets of nuts from them including the 'protein mix' and the 'energy' mix. I'll definitely be eating the 'protein mix' over the next few days.

*Taking The Pea (£1.50)
I received one of these packets already in my November LowToxBox and I didn't really like them after the first couple as they just aren't for me. However, you could also received the 'smoked ham' flavour in your December box.

*Ryvita Lightly Salted Rye Cakes (£1.39)
Another item we've received in a previous box however I do like them so it's ok! The rye 'cakes' are high in fibre, low in fat and they make a great snack with hummus, cheese, veggies or you could even make them a salty but sweet snack by adding peanut butter or pistachio spread.
*Coldpress Orange Juice (£1.50)
This item didn't even make it a few minutes after photographing it as I love orange juice and this one was delicious! I love the packaging too and I definitely prefer cold pressed juice as they contain more vitamins and nutrients. You could have received an apple juice instead - I'd definitely buy this in the future! 

*Matcha Instant Green Tea
Next up is an item that isn't on the leaflet so it must be part of one of their other boxes but as I'm an ambassador, I received items from other boxes. I do love green tea as well as herbal and mint tea so this item is great as it contains 15 stick sachets which is great for work or on the go. I haven't tried it yet as I have so much tea that is already open but it will be used throughout January. 

*Mary Berry's Food - Lemon & Mustard Seed Vinaigrette (£2.99)
Who knew that Mary Berry (the nations grandma) had her own food range! I certainly didn't know and I haven't seen any of her products in stores. This vinaigrette is great as a salad dressing or even as a pasta salad dressing. 
*Popchips Galactic Puffs (£1.99)
With the new Star Wars film just being released I didn't expect a Star Wars snack in the box but I'm glad it's in there...even though Chewbacca scared me initially! I received the barbecue flavour but I wish that I'd received the sour cream and chive option as it's my favourite crisp flavour but I'll still eat and share these! 

*Willies Cacao Black Pearls (£6.59)
If you use the code KVAA2 then even just with this item, the box will have more than paid for itself as the code gives you a box for only £5.99 and these chocolates are £6.59 - how amazing is that! I've heard about this brand for a while (I think he had a TV series years ago) so I was definitely intrigued to see this item along with all of the leaflets about it such as how the chocolate is made! I have the passionfruit caramel flavour which sounds incredible and I can't wait to try them. 
*Candy Kittens Gourmet Sweets (£3)
Now, I was so excited to see these as I do have a weakness for sweets especially sour sweets but sadly they contain beef gelatine...so I can't eat them. I know that this brand does have a few vegan options so I definitely want to try those particularly as the packaging is adorable but sadly these will have to be passed onto a friend. 

Overall, despite a couple of items I've received before and the sweets, it was another great box! I loved the juice, cordial, Popchips and the surprisingly effective Sleep Well drink. You get so much for your money and they are a great surprise each month, I cannot recommend them enough! 

If you use the discount code KVAA2 it will make the box £5.99 instead of £12.99!

What do you think of the December box? Have you used the discount code?
