DegustaBox - January 2019

Friday, January 25, 2019
The new subscription boxes for January 2019 are coming through and one of my favourites is DegustaBox. I love receiving their boxes as they always contain so many new products and items I haven't tried before; however as I've switched to a fully vegan diet (apart from a couple of items I still had in the fridge and needed to use up), I hoped there would be a few vegan or healthy items in the box - thankfully there were!

*DegustaBox - January 2019 
Firstly, the design of the box has changed a little for the new year and I really like it! The theme for the January box is 'recovery' which is very apt for the new year and January especially with the excesses of December. The theme and items within this box couldn't have come at a better time and I'm so happy with the content of this months box! As always if you use the code KVAA2 on the DegustaBox website then you'll be able to get your first box for only £7.99.
*Ryvita Protein Red Quinoa and Sesame (£1.59)
Let's start with sadly my least favourite item, to get it out of the way. I've tried Ryvita products numerous times over the past few years, mainly because my mum loved them so there were always packets in the house, but they just aren't for me. I know you can top them with a plethora of toppings but to me, they are just so dry and unappealing. However, my mum has tried them and she likes this flavour so maybe it's just me! One of the things I adore about DegustaBox is that they always include a range of new items or at least new flavours, such as the Ryvita slices.

*Kallo Corn Cakes, Rice Cakes and Lentil Cakes (£1.30 each)
Another item in a similar category are the corn and rice cakes from Kallo. I've tried the stock cubes from this brand and loved them but I haven't tried anything else. I have received all three of the Kallo 'cakes' in my box as I'm lucky enough to be a DegustaBox ambassador but you will only receive one of the three in your box - either the corn, rice or lentil cakes.

I've only tried the lentil cakes so far, as they sounded the most interesting and unusual to me (also I love the packaging design). The lentil cakes are nice and I love that they are a good source of protein which as a vegetarian/vegan is important to consider. Additionally, there are only 30 calories per cake which is something I always look out for.
*PBfit Peanut Butter Powder (£0.75)
Next up is a fantastic addition for me personally as I've wanted to try a peanut butter powder for so long and I've had a couple of variations in my Amazon saved list for months. There are two sachets within the box but you can only purchase a tub, rather than sachets. The reason I wanted to try powdered peanut butter is because it contains less fat and calories than 'normal' peanut butter - I don't know why. I'm definitely going to be adding this to my porridge to see if it works or not!

*Pick Up! Milk Chocolate Biscuits (£1.69)
Another sweet treat in the box is a pack of the Pick Up! biscuits which I've passed onto my sister as she loves these biscuits. I've never tried them but she absolutely loves them so I know they'll be a hit with so many people; however I'm not a biscuit person (don't hate me)...

*Hartley's 10 Cal Jelly Pots (£0.75)
I love finding low calorie snacks as I'm always trying to keep within a certain range of calories per day so low calorie snacks are ideal for me. They are suitable for vegetarians and I've finished both already....I loved the black forest gateau flavour but it is a little artificial. I also liked the lemon cheesecake flavour but it is quite sour. I would definitely buy both in the future though.
*Liobites Freeze Dried Apple Crisps (£1.50)
I have tried the smoothie bites from this brand so I couldn't wait to try these crisps - I do actually love fruit crisps! While I did like the apple crisps in terms of the flavour, however they were quite soft and I wasn't excepting that from 'crisps'. I would definitely check out this brand in the future though as I did like the smoothie crisps.

*Pipers Crispeas Matar Paneer (£1)
Another fantastic low calorie snack that contains protein and fibre. I love the packaging, it's a vegetarian snack (I wish there were more vegan snacks) and it is delicious. They have a very mildly spicy flavour (not hot though) which is perfect for me as I can't stand anything spicy!

*YES! Fruit and Nut Bars (£1.20)
Along with Liobites, this is another brand I've already tried and I love it. I received the three bars including: dark chocolate, sea salt and almond then coffee, dark chocolate and cherry. Lastly, there is the lemon, quinoa and chilli bar, which I won't be trying as to be honest, that combination is not for me! I adore the dark chocolate, sea salt and almond bar though.
*Miso Tasty Original Ramen Noodle Kit (£3.50)
The most expensive item in the box is the noodle kit which is another item that was included in a previous box. It contains noodles, sesame oil, seasonings and toppings. I think it's a great all in one meal kit that's great on it's own or you can add extras to it.

*Willy's Apple Cider Vinegar (£2.95)
Last but not least is a product that I like the packaging of and how different it is to all of the other items in the box. I definitely do not drink apple cider vinegar, as some people can but I do use it when I make vegan ranch dips so I'm very happy with this item!

Overall, I think this box is probably one of my all time favourites from DegustaBox as it contains so many snacks that are low calorie, lots of vegetarian items and a couple of products that I've wanted to try for a while, including the peanut butter powder and jelly pots.

Don't forget to use the code: KVAA2 to get your box for only £7.99!

What do you think of the first DegustaBox for 2019?
