I can’t believe that we’re almost in the middle of September already. This year is really flying by it won’t be long before we’re all getting ready for Christmas ( I know, I know… I mentioned the *C* word, I’m sorry I won’t do it again until at least the middle of November). Regular readers will know that every month Degustabox send My Three and Me a box of delicious foods all of which are a surprise. We have no idea what’s inside until we open the box up.
Degustabox is a monthly subscription food box. You pay £12.99 (this includes delivery) and each month you will receive a box of 9 – 14 surprise food products – some of which are new products. The value of items in your box will always be more than what you have paid. However, if you aren’t happy with the service and you wish to cancel your subscription you can do so at any time as you are under no obligation to buy more boxes than you want too.
Inside This Months Box:
Three Dr Oetker Mug Cakes (£2.37). Perfect for a late night snack or treat and ready in under two minutes. You simply add the mix to your mug, and milk and then heat in your microwave. Flavours included rich chocolate, lemon and chocolate chip. My favourite was definitely the chocolate chip.
One bottle of LifeTonics Hydration plus (£1.49). Each bottle of coconut water contains fruit extracts, 5 vitamins and 4 minerals but no refined sugars or artificial sweetners. Available from Whsmith travel outlets and Waitrose in three flavours coconut and mint, danlandan orange and Elderberry and juniper. I was sent the coconut and mint flavoured water. It’s something I have never tried before and although I wasn’t keen on the first few sips I did find it quite refreshing in the end.
One box of Williamson Ginger Grove Tea (£4.00). Tea grown on a farm looking down to Lake Victoria, Africa. The tea is combined with ginger pieces to create a tea that helps revitalise you. The tea is pesticide free. I love a good cup of tea but I was sceptical to try this, however I really enjoyed it and will be drinking it again.
One packet of Pick Up dark chocolate biscuits. Each bar comprises a slab of chocolate sandwiched between two thin butter biscuits. Perfect for a snack or lunchbox. Each pack contains 5 individually wrapped biscuits. Available from Asda.
One packet of Choco Leibniz White from Bahlsen. The perfect treat to enjoy with a cup of tea and a book (well I think so anyway). Each biscuit cocoa biscuit has a lovely white chocolate slab on top. Available from Asda, Sainsburys, Waitrose and Ocado.
One box of Penne Rigate (£1.50) and a jar of Arrabbiata sauce (£2.00) from Barilla. The Penne pasta is made in Italy from selected durum wheat and is shaped like an old style pen with angled ends and ridges. Barilla’s Arrabbiata sauce is a blend of spicy chillies and 1005 authentic Italian tomatoes. The sauce contains no preservatives. It is cooked slowly to give a thicker and richer texture. We enjoyed the pasta and sauce one night for tea. It was really nice but the sauce is quite spicy.
Four small packets of shortbread biscuits from Walkers. I am a huge fan of shortbread so when I saw that there were two packets inside this months box I was very happy. It is my favourite type of biscuit to relax with on an evening with my book or whilst watching the soaps with a cup of tea. These packets are ideal to share (or maybe not), enjoy as a snack or to put in a lunchbox.
One packet of Delicious Alchemy’s Oaty Cookie Mix. Delicious Alchemy are dedicated to making gluten free foods. From cake and bread mixes to breakfast cereals they are the best in the business after winning awards for their foods. This mix makes up to 10 golden cookies each packed with oats and a sweet syrup flavour.
Two packets of Ryvita. One packet of Cracked Black Pepper crispbread and one packet of Sesame crispbread. You can eat them with pretty much anything you like. Both packs are full of flavour and help add a little extra flavour to your healthy lunch. I love ryvita with tomato soup instead of bread. The Cracked Black Pepper ones were delicious and I loved them with cheese and tomato too.
