I got December’s Degustabox a bit earlier than normal, but haven’t had time to share it will you has I have been busy and spending some time with my family over Christmas.
To be honest, I was a little bit disappointed in this months box. Thought it could have been more Christmasy. Maybe a Christmas pudding or Christmas themed chocolate.
First out the box are these yummy Choco Leibniz chocolate biscuits from Bahlsen. They are priced at £1.79 each and come in 2 varieties, Milk and Caramel. Both of these were nice and the whole family enjoyed them.
Then out came Popchips. I have never heard of these before, but there were really nice! We tried the Sour Cream & Onion. There are 4 other flavours too. they are priced at £1.79 a bag.
Next was Eisberg alcohol-free wine. These are available in Chardonnay, Rose, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling. They are priced at £3.49 a bottle. I am not over keen on wine, but this was okay. It was quite sweet and not too dry. I didn’t like the smell of it though, but then again, I don’t really like the smell of any wine. And it only has 24 calories per a serving which is good, just a shame it’s alcohol free. LOL
Another product from Kent’s Kitchen. I am surprised that this was included in this months box as it has already been included in a past box. They only difference is we got a different flavour. This one was Tikka Marsala and priced at £2.50. I won’t be trying it has it is made with chicken stock, so one for my husband. He still hasn’t tried out the one we received before yet
Bonne Maman coarse orange marmalade priced at £2.30. No one likes marmalade in our house, so I gave this to my mum and dad. Don’t know if they have tried it yet, so I can’t really say much about it.
Pukka clean green tea. This contains 20 tea bags for £2.39, which I think is a bit high, but they are quite nice. They are made with green tea, dandelion root and Sicilian lemons giving it a really fresh and uplifting taste. These would be great for starting a detox with and are very healthy. They are also fair-trade and 20p goes to WWF for every pack purchased. Both me and my husband likes these, and will be looking out for them on the shelves.
We haven’t yet tried this Frylight Infuse Garlic spray but sounds right up our street. I can think of lots of yummy things to cook with this, and will be trying it out soon. This costs £2.00
The Chia Co – porridge oats with chia seeds and fruit just add hot water. This sounded really nice and healthy and was ok, but the chia seeds where quite hard. I can’t make my mind up about this one. But not too sure if I would buy it again
And last but not least is Gloworm Drinks. Now I haven’t got a photo of these as me and my husband drank them straight away and then throw the cans out and then 2 days later I realized I didn’t take a photo. These little drinks are supposed to compliment spirits, but we had none in, so we just drank them as they were. The flavours where Raspberry & Orris, Cucumber & Apple, Pear, Spice & Lime and Ginger & Lemongrass. I liked the raspberry one the most and my husband liked the pear, spice and lime. The ginger and lemongrass was nice, but just tasted like lemonade. The one with cucumber in we both didn’t like. I hate cucumber and you could really taste it.
These are priced at £1.50 each. We would buy them again, but only if they was on offer
