DegustaBox - September 2020

Wednesday, September 30, 2020
It's that time of the month again, my DegustaBox review! I'm lucky enough to be a DegustaBox ambassador so I receive their boxes each month to review, although all of my opinions are my own. If you follow me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand), then you'll get a sneak peek of all the items within each box on my stories. 

*DegustaBox - September 2020

As always, each box has a theme and the theme for the September box is 'family sharing and home cooking' which is the perfect autumnal theme. The items range from soup, cider and energy drinks to healthy snacks, sweet treats and more. There were so many great items in the September box, including one item that I've already purchased multiples of because I loved it so much - read on to find out which it is!

*Rhythm 108 Sweet 'n' Salty Almond Bar (£1.49)

I always start with the sweet treats so let's begin with a vegan snack bar that I can't wait to try. The bar is gluten free, organic and vegan as well as being high in fibre and lower in sugar. I love the combination of oats, chocolate and almonds so this bar sounds utterly delicious and I can't wait to try this snack bar. 

*Nakd Drizzled Chocolish Bars Multipack (£3)

Nakd is a brand that I've loved for years and I think I've tried pretty much every single flavour of their original bars as well as a couple of their other products (my favourite flavour is lemon drizzle!). The new bars combine chocolate, fruit and nuts within one bar. They are 100% natural and they don't contain added sugar so they are great for reducing your sweet cravings in a healthier way. 

*McVitie's V.I.Bs (£1.79)

A new product in the box is a pack of biscuits from McVitie's but it isn't any old biscuit, it is a very important biscuit (hence, V.I.B). There are three flavours available but I received the caramel option; however blood orange and chocolate hazelnut could have been within your box instead. 

*Whitworths Chocolate Biscuit & Hazelnut Treat Mix (£2)

Another sweet but healthy(ish) snack in the September box is a sharing pack of the new chocolate biscuit and hazelnut mix from Whitworths. The brand has been included in a couple of previous boxes and my mum has loved all of their products so I'm sure she will love these too! 

*FulFil Chocolate Hazelnut Whip Bar (£2)

The penultimate sweet treat snack is another snack bar but sadly this one isn't vegan unfortunately as it sounds amazing! It is a snack bar filled with vitamins E, C, B1, B6, B12, folic acid and more - each bar contains 30% of your daily requirement of each vitamin!

*Hartley's Jelly Pots (£1.65, for 3 pots) 

Lastly, a sweet pot of jelly that is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans...at least I don't think so. It seems that the brand is mainly non-vegetarian but this one is according to the pot. I love raspberry as a flavour and jelly is such a sweet, low calorie nostalgic treat so I'll have to research further before trying this snack. 

*Peter's Yard Original Sourdough Crispbread

For the past couple of months, within each box a little gift item has been included and this month is no different. The gift within the September box is a mini packet of sourdough crispbread which are handbaked in small batches using natural ingredients. The crispbreads are award winning and sound completely delicious. 

*St Lawrence Gold Canadian Maple Syrup (£1)

Another mini product is an adorable pot of maple syrup which is something I'm always happy to receive! The syrup is made in Canada and it 'Grade A amber colour' and I can't wait to use it although I won't be pouring it on pancakes as I love to make savoury pancakes. Maple syrup is amazing when combined with porridge, cinnamon and apples! 

Emily Veg Thins (79p each)

I have tried a few vegetable crisps from this brand and I loved all of them - these are no different. I love crisps and savoury snacks and these are the perfect quick, easy and delicious desk or on the go snack but they are still healthy. They contain peas, black beans, red lentils and corn to make a wholesome and very moreish alternative to crisps. I will be buying these in the future!

*Naked Five Minute Noodles (£1)

The final couple of food items are savoury lunch options, the first is an instant noodle packet that I would have loved, if it was vegan! It can be consumed as a snack on its own or add in vegetables to make a more substantial meal. 

*Amy's Kitchen Organic Vegetable Barley Soup (£1.89)

This unassuming tin of vegan soup has to be my favourite item from not only this months box but from all of the boxes this year! I have loved a few products from this brand but I hadn't tried their range of soup until this one. It is the most comforting, nourishing and warming soup that is ideal for cold autumn days. It is also low in calories and I have already purchased four tins of it...and finished them all. I will continue to buy this soup for the rest of autumn and winter! 

*Thatchers Cloudy Lemon Cider (£5.50, per four pack) 

Last but not least are the two drinks included in the September box, the first is a tin of cloudy lemon cider from Thatchers. I don't drink very often, apart from the occasional glass of wine or cider, but this one sounds so delicious. I adore anything lemon flavoured so I will be trying this very soon. 

*Lucozade Revive (£1.49)

The final item is another delicious drink but it is a new soft drink from Lucozade. There are two flavours available but I received the orange and passionfruit flavour which is very summery and moreish. I don't typically drink carbonated or fizzy drinks (I've never really liked them) but I may purchase this flavour in the future. 

Don't forget to use the code: DTPL4 to get your first box for only £9.99!
