Review Of Degustabox September

I do enjoy a monthly surprise  from Degustabox this September was a right corker as the nights turn darker there is plenty with the box to keep the cool Autumn nights at bay. Each month Degustabox with send around 9-14 different products to you for £12.99 the price of this is much less than you would pay in the shops. It is a great way to try some new bespoke products in fact at this very moment I am baking a Gin and Marmalade cake which I hope will be ready by the time I have finished writing this blog post.

Jordans Simply Granola £2.69
Ideal for my husband he loves granola you can enjoy this not just with milk but why not try it with almond milk or yogurt. I topped mine last week with bananas and blueberries to make a really healthy start to my week, the size of the bag was good as well at 750g. My T though the granola could have been more clustered , he said a granola should be clustered!

La Viveja Fabrica £1.59

I SO enjoyed the marmalade and it wasn't the sort of marmalade that sets your teeth or edge either by being too bitter. I found the marmalade particularly scrumptious on toast and I am using the last of it as previously mentioned in a Gin and Marmalade cake, which still has about 10 minutes left to cook, though by the time you have read this I will have eaten it all ~sorry

Righteous recommended price 75p

There are 3 Righteous dressings: Lemon and Mustard Seed, Raspberry and Sweet Basil, & Mild English Blue Cheese & Cider - My husband took 2 of them with his salads , he like only the Lemon and Mustard seed and I was left with the raspberry and sweet basil which I didn't enjoy.

Elizabeth Shaw RRP £2.50

This is a brand new Dark chocolate mint thin from Elizabeth Shaw coupled with delicate layers of quality dark chocolate with mint, luxuriously decayed with crunchy mint sprinkles. Ideal to share with friends over a coffee ,this is what myself and Mr T did . This would ideal I think at Christmas and is a break form the norm from the bog standard mints you can get.

Burts RRP 69p a packet

Burts Lentil Waves are available from Waitrose in three tantalising flavours; Sour Cream & Chive, Thai Sweet Chilli and Lightly Salted. We all enjoyed these as a family and were gently surprised by their lightness.

Little Miracles RRP £1.39 per bottle

I was really looking forward to trying these energy drinks , I rarely drink energy drinks but these piqued my interest as they are sweetened with agave. They were a nice pick up on an hot day when Autumn was getting confused ! and I was sweltering in the heat. They are less than 90 calories and are free from colure,flavours and sweeteners.

Crabbies Zesty Lemon RRP £1.50

Well it was lemony not in such a way that your lips form an "O my goodness that is a tart lemon taste" , but more of a "O how refreshing". I would gladly buy these all year round * adds them to this weeks shopping.

Pick Me Up RRP £1.69

Who doesn't love a chocolate biscuits that is individually wrapped ~ not that these made it out of the house I have to tell you, they are a very luxurious biscuit which is fair on the price you pay for it.

Carnation Cook With It £1.65

We were unsure on this ~ it might have been down to the fact that I had a rare cooking fail and my fish pie looked liked prison slops. I am willing to give it another go and try it in another recipe with the remaining one I have left, the price seems a little on the high side in comparison to the milk you buy for your family.

If you want to find Degustabox then you can find them on Twitter 


  1. That looks a very tasty box for the month. And yum biscuits.

  2. I loved the salad dressings - I hate eating dull salad so anything to cheer it up. I guess the carnation stuff is handy to have in the cupboard x

  3. You can buy the lentil curls from M&S - really tasty low cal treat

  4. I always worry I would receive items we wouldn't eat if I did this.
