The last box of the year arrived shortly before Christmas. For once, I was home when it came. I usually miss it and after wait a few days. Boo.
Let’s see what’s inside!
Degustabox December 2016
Oh Fudge! // £4.99
These are expensive, but these unique flavoured boxes of fudge make a great gift. They come in three flavours and I got Apple and Cinnamon.
Hoots Snacks // 69p
I loved this and if I saw them in a shop, I’d buy them again. I really enjoyed the salt and pepper one. They’re baked snakes that are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. They’re basically bruschetta and I love them.
Bite+ Multi Grain Flakes // £1.69
I just couldn’t get on with these. It’s a good idea, but they’re basically cornflakes and I couldn’t disassociate the texture with the cereal so it felt wrong for them to be salty rather than sugary!
Newton’s Appl Fizzics // £1.29
This is made with a refreshing blend of apple juice and sparkling waters. It’s all natural with 40% less sugar than apple juice. I used this as a mixer with vodka and it was lovely.
Eisberg Alcoholic Free Wine // £1.39
I’ll be honest and say I won’t be trying this. Alcoholic free wine is not for me! But if you love the taste of wine but want to cut down after Christmas, it might be worth a squirt for you!
Maggie 3 Minute Noodles // 75p
I was really looking forward to trying these noodles, but I was a bit disappointed as I couldn’t taste the flavour that much. More spice, please!
What A Melon // £2
Is watermelon water the new coconut water? I’m not sure but I’m not complaining as I love watermelon and can’t wait to try this hydrating drink.
a2 Milk // £1.39
I’m glad I’ve got this as a backup in case I run out of fresh milk! This is an easy to digest milk that is naturally free from the A1 protein that can trigger lactose intolerance, so it might help if milk makes you feel a bit ill. Make sure you consult your doctor before trying if you have a milk allergy.
Bahlsen Lebkuchen Mischung // £1.99
These are gingerbread pieces glazed with chocolate and are the perfect size for sharing with guests over the festive period!
Bahlsen Akora // £1.99
These traditional heart-shaped lebkuchen sound interesting. They’re filled with a spiced jam filling and have a gingerbread base. I think they’ll be delicious at breakfast time with a cuppa!
Gallo Risotto Box // £2
I really wanted to eat this but it goes in the microwave so I can’t! Although I might take it to work and have on my break. It only takes 1 minute and 30 seconds to cook.
It has no artificial colourings, no hydrogenated fat and no MGSs.
Nutri-Brex // £3.79
I love this brand, they’ve featured in Degustabox before and I’m going to take them to work to stop myself eating crap for breakfast. The only thing is I’m not sure if I’ll like the coconut in them as I’m not a massive coconut fan. The breakfast cereal is naturally gluten-free and fortified with vitamins and high in fibre.
You can get a whopping £7.00 discount, which means the first box will cost £5.99 with the code FAZHX at Degustabox.
