It doesn’t seem like two minutes since I was reviewing the last Degustabox! It’s come around so fast.
For those of you that don’t know, Degustabox is a monthly subscription box that sends you food, snacks, and drinks to try each week. A mixture of classics and new products and brands. I’ve been working with them for the past few years to help spread the word about the boxes and what’s inside.
Let’s take a peek at the September Box!
Hartley’s No Added Sugar Jelly Pots.
Jelly is a lot of fun and these are great as a low-calorie sweet snack or in a lunch box. Although the ready to eat ones don’t have gelatin in them, most do contain a colouring called Carmine, which is basically crushed up bugs, so be careful if you’re not a meat eater.
Metcalfe’s Popcorn Thins
These popcorn thins are made from corn so have a unique texture and crunch. I’m kind of excited to try them and love that they’re individually wrapped!
Mrs Crimble’s Fusilli
When I think of Mrs Crimble, I think of the chocolate coconut macaroons my Mum used to get when she first found out she had IBS. Since then, the gluten-free range in supermarkets has grown loads. Now you can get things like these easy to make pasta meals in sauces. It never would have been this simple to eat gluten free 10 years ago!
Chia Bia Whole & Milled Chia Seed Sachets
Chia seeds have become really popular lately and I do have a bag already. They’re expensive but do last for ages, so it’s not such a big deal. They have Omega 3, fibre and protein. They also help to keep you feeling full and they’re a great addition to smoothies or sweet deserts.
I’ve never tried milled ones before though!
Ciro Borlotti Beans
Ciro is a brand that regularly features in Degustabox, but usually their tomato based products. These beans are picked, freshly shelled and quickly steam-cooked in the can for freshness.
They’re a good source of fibre, vitamins, proteins and carbs.
£1.89 per pack of 3
I love these! I used to have them in France all the time when I lived there. Although the directions say it’s to add flavour to still or sparkling water, it can also be used in beers, spirit drinks and cocktails.
Say YES to No Bread Chips
I don’t get the name of this brand because it says say yes to no bread. But it is bread.
It’s natural as bread and tasty as chips.
I’m confused by their branding but they seem nice.
Get Fruity Bars
These fruit and oat bars come in six flavours. They’re gluten free and have virgin coconut oil – each bar is 100% natural.
Miso Tasty Miso Soup
I love miso soup. Most of it isn’t vegetarian but this one is, woo.
It’s made from 12 months fermented soybeans and rice with a hint of Japanise shichimi spice. They’re not only vegetarian but vegan, gluten free and only 45 calories each!
£3.65 for 4 servings
Cold tea. I’ve never tried cold tea before I don’t think. They’re Rooibos tea though which I like warm but never tried cold. I’m a little scared.
It has no refined sugar and only has natural ingredients.
That’s the box.
