DegustaBox - February 2019

Wednesday, March 06, 2019
The January blues somehow moved on into February and I had no motivation to be productive in any way so sadly today's post is a little late but it is finally here! The January box was absolutely fantastic and thankfully the February box is great too with a wide range of items. If you use the code KVAA2 at the checkout, you can receive your box for only £7.99.

*DegustaBox - February 2019 (£12.99)
The range of items within the February box ranges from childrens milk cartons and snacks to pastas, sweets and more. There are quite a few items and brands that haven't been included within the previous boxes such as the brioche flatbread, jelly gums, pork crackling and seaweed snacks. The theme of the box is 'degusta and chill' so I assume that's why the box contains mostly snacks for any movie night you might have.
*Sacla Reduced Fat Vegan Pasta (£2.50)
Let's start with my favourite item from the box, the vegan pesto from Sacla. It's a brand I've wanted to try for a while but haven't purchased before. I'm SO glad that more and more of the items within the boxes are vegan! The pesto is so incredibly delicious, even my non-vegan friends liked it and I've managed to eat half of the jar already...I will definitely be purchasing this item in the future as it's so quick/easy to use, it tastes delicious and it's vegan.

*Explore Cuisine Organic Chickpea Fusilli (£3)
Another vegan item is the chickpea fusilli which I haven't had the time to try yet but I have wanted to try non-wheat pasta for a while as it's a healthier option and one that contains more protein than regular wheat pasta. Additionally, it's organic and gluten free so this box is ideal for those with numerous dietary requirements.
*Deli Kitchen Golden Brioche Flatbread (£1.25)
Another extremely delicious item, or so I'm told, are the two packs of brioche flatbread from the February box. Before going vegan at the beginning of the year I did try brioche buns a few times and I can say that they were amazing so I'm sure these are too. My mum has tried tried these as part of an easy lunch at work and she loved them.

*Snaffling Pig Pork Crackling (75p each)
Thankfully, there are only two items within the entire box that aren't suitable for vegetarians and one of those are the two packs of pork crackling. There are two flavours included, the salted flavour and BBQ flavour. Naturally I haven't tried them but I am going to pass them onto someone who'll enjoy them.
*Bebeto Watermelon Jelly Gums (50p each)
The second and final item that isn't suitable for vegetarians are these watermelon sweets. If these were suitable for vegans then I would have been so happy as I love gummy sweets but sadly they're not. They are apparently the biggest selling pack in the UK with over three million sold last year.

*Orangina Original (£1.30)
Next up, an item that's been included in a couple of boxes already but I'm always happy to receive. I try not to drink too many carbonated drinks; however, I do have to make an exception for these. They contain real citrus pulp and can be used on its own or mixed into cocktails.

*Appy Kids Co Whole Milk (£1)
When I saw these two packs of mini milk cartons, the first thought I had was that one of my best friends toddlers would love them...as they had Paw Patrol on the front. I don't drink cows milk so I passed them onto my friend and her son instantly loved them as Paw Patrol is one of his favourite TV shows!
*Clearspring Organic Seaveg Crispies Tumeric Multipack (£2.59)
Next up is probably one of the most unusual snacks within the box (and from the past couple of boxes at least). It's a pack of dried seaweed sheets that are flavoured with turmeric...they don't sound like the most delicious and typical snacks but I changed my mind very quickly after trying them.

It's a multipack so there are three in each pack and I've already ate them all, especially as they are only 18 calories per pack. The sheets are baked, they are gluten free, vegan and high fibre snacks. The only downside is that the numeric powder on the sheets can be very messy and can stain very quickly.
*Choc Chick Quinoa Pops and Plantain Bites (£1.85 each)
Last but definitely not least are two packs of vegan chocolate snacks, including the quinoa pops and plantain bites. The quinoa pops are so moreish and delicious, I'll definitely be looking out for them in the future! Sadly though, the plantain bites aren't great if I'm honest. I think this is the first time that I've tried plantain and it's just not for me unfortunately.

Overall, it's a little bit of a mixed bag but I'm happy on the whole with the range of items as well as the inclusion of more and more vegan items in the boxes. I hope more vegan items will appear in future boxes. Don't forget to use the code KVAA2 to get your box for £7.99!

Have you tried any of these items? What do you think of the February box

  12. I really enjoy bean/ lentil pasta so I can only assume that chickpea would be equally delicious. The quinoa chocolates sound delicious x
