Degustabox: February - Review

Last month, I reviewed Degustabox's January box and abolutely loved it so I was really excited to receive February's box too.

Inside this months Degustabox was:

1. Scheckter's Original & Lite Organic Energy Drinks - I have to admit that I didn't drink these, Chris did. I'm not a fan of energy drinks in general but now that I'm pregnant, I'm being very overcautious! He said that they tasted great but he didn't quite get a burst of energy from them.

2. Ryvita Thin Bites in Cheddar & Cracked Black Pepper and Sweet Chilli - these were absolutely delicious. I would sit snacking on them in the evening and not feel guilty as they're only 80 calories per serving! I will definitely buy them in the future.

3. Tyrrells Apple Crisps & Apple Cinnamon Crisps - I love Tyrrells original crisps but I must admit that these were a bit strange for me! I much prefer savoury crisps to sweet crisps. They are made with real apples and the coats are left on!

4. Soreen Banana Lunchbox Loaves - We have bought these for C in the past and he loves to snack on them so I was really pleased to see them in this box. They're very moist and have just enough banana in them. They're only 95 calories too so I have no problems with him eating them.

5. Soreen Original Toastie Loaf - Like the banana loaves, we have bought this for C. It made a great change to his usual breakfasts of normal toast or cereal and it tastes great toasted with butter.

6. Bahlsen Pick Up! Biscuits - Oh my goodness. These are amazing! A thick layer of chocolate sandwiched between two layers of biscuit - yum! We think they tasted great dipped into a cup of tea!

7. Bahlsen Waffeletten Dark Chocolate - Ooh, these are yummy! Thin, rolled waffle wafer with one half dipped in dark chocolate. Very nice but a little messy to eat!

8. English Provender Company Damson & Port Chutney and Redcurrant & Rosemary Sauce - I have to say that these were my least favourite items in the box. I'm not a fan of ANY preserves so I passed these on to my parents. The Damson & Port Chutney is said to be plummy and taste great with creamy camembert and stilton. The Redcurrant & Rosemary sauce is juicy and reportedly great with lamb and venison.

9. Peppadew Mild Piquante Peppers - I'd never tried jarred peppers before as I always thought that fresh would be better. We added ours into spaghetti bolognese and it was a lovely change. They gave a sweet heat/tang and I'll definitely buy them again.

I was over the moon with the items in my box and I think that it's definitely worth the £12.99! They've given me a discount code to share with you to get £3.00 off. Just enter ASQ0F at the checkout.
