Septemeber 2016 Degustabox Review

It’s that time of the month again when I share with you what we got in our Degustabox. In September’s box there was some really nice things that I loved and also some things that I didn’t like so much, so I am calling this my 50/50 box .

Here’s the video of me opening the box and finding out what was inside

 

And here is everything we got!

degustabox-sep-jelly

 

Hartley’s Jelly Pots

We recently received some of these and have included them in my back to school lunches post. My kids really love these and love to have these as a treat. We received 4 flavours, strawberry, raspberry, orange and lemon. My kids loved all the flavours. These are priced at 50p each and if you collect 12 lids from special promotion packs you can exchange them for a free yellow lunchbox with stickers.

My overall rating – 

 

degustabox-sep-cape

 

Cape Drinks

I received two flavours of these Cape drinks, Pineapple & Passion Fruit and Peach & Lychee. These are made with roobios tea and have added vitamins a=and no refined sugar or artificial ingredients and there is only 89 calories per a can. I really liked the pineapple & passion fruit one, the peach & lychee was ok, but I much prefer the first flavour.

My overall rating – 

 

 

degustabox-sep-teisseire

 

Teisseire Raspberry & Cranberry Sirop

This was my favourite item out of the box. You just add a bit of this to water, just like squash. Except this has no sugar and is made with my favourite sweetener, stevia. This was really really delicious!! I really love raspberry anyway, but these was one of the best drinks I have had. I will definitely be buying this one again.

degustabox-sep-goodies

 

Metcalfe’s Popcorn Thins

I really like Metcalfe’s but this is the first time I have tried these. I received the dark chocolate one, but you can also get this in milk chocolate. I really like dark chocolate so I tried this with my daughter Caitlin. It is really nice and has a lovely thick layer of smooth chocolate. Another item I would buy again.

My overall rating –

 

Get Fruity

These bars are available in 6 different flavours, I received the tangy Pineapple, Coconut & Lime flavour. This was really nice and just the right amount of each flavour too. Get Fruity contains gluten-free oats & virgin coconut oil with no added refined sugars, produced on a nut free site and is 100% natural. These are great as a healthy snack or treat. You can buy these from their online store and a box of 25 costs only £14.50, which works out at 58p a bar, cheaper than a chocolate bar. These are perfect for popping into your kids lunchbox.

My overall rating – 

 

degustabox-sep-chia-soup

 

Chia Bia

I have put these in my cupboard and forgot they were there until I came to write this post! I have had chia seeds before so I know that I like them, but haven’t tried milled ones yet. I like to add them to my porridge with some honey or fruit and also in my yogurt. They are so versatile you can add them to anything, and they are really healthy too!

My overall rating – 

 

Miso Tasty

I have tried miso soup before and didn’t like it, but I still gave these a try in case it tasted different. But unfortunately it didn’t. I just don’t like the taste. But I do have a few friends who love this stuff, but it’s just not for me.

My overall rating – 

 

degustabox-sep-say-yes

 

Say Yes To No

These are toasted bread chips and are available in 3 flavours, I received the BBQ ones. They are a mix between crisps and toast bites, but they are so moreish!  They have no artificial flavourings or additives and have less fat than normal crisps. I really liked these and really liked the packaging too. Another item on my to buy list.

My overall rating –  

 

 

degustabox-sep-beans-pasta

 

Cirio Borlotti Beans

These beans came in a pack of 3. I haven’t got around to trying these out yet, so can’t really comment on what they taste like. But to me a bean is a bean, so even if I bought a cheaper brand I don’t think I would be able to tell the difference. I always buy the cheapest beans and pulse I can find, as to me, they all taste the same.

My overall rating –

 

Mrs Crimble’s Fusilli with a Gourmet Mushroom Sauce

I had this for my dinner the other day, I am not a big fan of mushrooms, but I can eat them when they are in something. To make this you just add water and simmer in a pan for about 10 minutes. You can make this a bit creamier by adding less water and adding some milk and butter instead. I made mine a bit creamier. This is supposed to make one main meal or as a side for 2 people. But I thought the portion size was very small, and it didn’t fill me up. The pasta was nice, but the mushroom r=taste is very strong, so i wasn’t over keen at all. It’s a great gluten-free alternative, but I would prefer a different flavour.

My overall rating – 

 

So that’s it for this month. My favourite item was definitely the Teisseire drink, My kids liked the jellies the most.
