December Degustabox

The latest Degustabox arrived, as I was packing suitcases for our trip to Italy the next morning. I haven't even opened it until we came back home from holidays. It was a lovely surprise to come home to.
We are always looking forward to our Degustabox delivery, which arrives every month and is full of foodie surprises. This monthly food and drink subscription box is an excellent way to discover products which have only just appeared in the shops or those which might have been around for while, but you haven't had a chance to try them yet.
Thanks to Degustabox, I have found new favourites to add to our shopping list, including some products which I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise.

Each time the box arrives, it's a total surprise. You get a good selection of foods and drinks.
If you haven't tried Degustabox subscription box yet and would like to have a go, I have a whopping £7 off discount from your first box (and you can unsubscribe any time) - just use a code 8EVI8 when you place an order.
What did we receive in December Degustabox? Let's have a look.

We love nuts in this house. Planters snacks are delicious. We got two varieties of Planters (60g) bags:
Planters Nut-rition Protein mix (peanuts, redskin peanuts, cashew nuts and almonds) as well as Energy Mix (chocolate covered honeycomb, Brazil nuts, walnuts and peanuts).
I used one bag of nuts to make lovely nutty oat cookies.
Energy mix contained very tasty chocolate covered honeycomb, but we couldn't find any walnuts inside.

Popchips Galactic Puffs is my sons' recent favourite snack. We have discovered them recently in Waitrose. I usually buy the BBQ flavour, and was pleased to see the other flavour - Sour cream and onions in the box. I only managed to snap one general photo of the contents of the box, and then the pack of Popchips disappeared so fast, I had no chance to take an individual photo.
Popchips contain no added preservatives, artificial flavours, synthetic colours, cholesterol, 0 grams trans fat, and they are gluten free as well.
Galactic Puffs are a fun snack for all Star Wars fans.

Taking the Pea is the UK's first Great Taste Award winning grab and go range of savoury pea snacks, and very tasty they are too. With more protein than crisps and less fat than nuts, these peas are the perfect healthy snacking product. They come in several flavours, and are great for when you're feeling peckish.

Ryvita Lightly Salted Rye Cakes are made with popped wholegrain rye. They are naturally high in fibre and low in fat. If one of your new year's resolutions was to lose a bit of weight, this wholesome snack might be your new friend. Eat them with a variety of healthy toppings and feel virtuous.

If you are not counting calories, there is an indulgent box of Willies Cacao Black Pearls, made with single estate chocolate and sea salt caramel. Very moreish chocolate balls are individually wrapped.
You will receive one of two flavours (the second one is Passion Fruit Caramel, which sounds equally delightful).

Another sweet treat - Candy Kittens Gourmet Sweets. These are trendy gluten free gourmet sweets for a discerning palate. Sour Watermelon sweets will make you pucker, they are truly sour.

Mary Berry's Foods - Lemon & Mustard Seed Vinaigrette is a zesty condiment, which will jazz up many salads, and will be lovely with salmon, either steamed or smoked.
I used it, while frying potatoes with wild mushrooms, and it gave a lovely lemony hint to the overall flavours.

Lift Matcha Green Tea is a matcha flavoured green tea which comes in sachets. The tea is light and refreshing.

Sleep Well is a new concept milk drink, made with Jersey milk and honey as well as valerian, a herb which has been used as a sleeping aid for thousands of years. Drink it warm or cold for a better sleep.

Coldpress is a range of delicious juice, which are made only using coldpressure HPP (HIgh Pressure Processing), which doesn't damage the vitamins or nutrients. Coldpress is tasty and healthy.

New Robinsons Fruit Creations contains twice the fruit and more juicier and fruitier flavours. Peach & raspberry is a lovely refreshing sweet drink. You only need a little bit of the syrup to make a glass of tasty squash.

And finally, there is a bottle of San Miguel 0.0% alcohol-free beer. It still has the same flavour and quality of beer, but with none of the alcohol.
