- Winter Degustabox...

I usually post every other day but seeing as I've managed to get ahead and schedule several posts, I thought I may as well treat you all with one today - and what a treat it is! Following on from yesterday's food goodie theme, it's once again Degustabox* time!

Incase you've missed my previous Degustabox posts (here and here), this monthly delivery box service contains 9-14 surprise food & drink items, many of which are new. The boxes only cost £12.99 a month (inc. delivery) and as usual, I have a £3 discount code to share with you - simply type 'AUDJG' when registering.

The first thing I noticed about this box was that the interior text had changed from the familiar green to a festive red in order to correspond with the Winter theme *insert random squeal of Christmas excitement here*!
Now let's see what's inside this month's box...

Kent's Kitchen Flavour Shots RRP: £1.85
Holy Cow Indian Curry Sauces RPP: £1.69 (each)

First of all is the Kent's Kitchen Flavour Shots which I received in 'Fajita'; others flavours are BBQ, Thai Green, Garlic & Coriander and Hot & Spicy. These are such an easy way to add flavour to meat and I'm looking forward to using them in wraps. I'm pleased to see another Kent's Kitchen product after loving their meal kit in last month's Degustabox.

Next are these Holy Cow sauces used to make authentic Indian curries. These contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and are made from only natural ingredients! As you can see, I have 'Kashmir Roganjosh' which I'll use with lamb, and 'Mangalore Malabar' which I'll use with some fish. I really like the sauces/flavourings Degustabox provide; they're a great way to create a tasty meal quickly!

Branston Chutney RRP: £1.50

Also included is this Mediterranean Tomato Chutney by Branston. This product is new to the market and there is also a Caramelised Onion one being released. At the bottom of the box was a leaflet with a recipe for Mediterranean Tomato Chutney & Cheese Sausage Rolls which sounds incredible! I will have to try those one day but so far I've had a dollop in my burger which gave a delicious flavour and I bet it also works well with cheese & biscuits!

Kettle Chips RRP: £2.19

Kettle Chips have been up there in my favourites for a while now as I love their vast range of unique flavours. They've decided to reintroduce two of their much-loved flavours as limited editions this Christmas: Salsa & Mesquite and Stilton & Port. Apparently Salsa & Mesquite was one of the original flavours when the brand first released in 1988! If you haven't had these before, then they are honestly scrumdiddlyumptious!

Lindt Chocolates RRP: £0.65 (each)

If the sight of these doesn't make you drool, then I don't know what will (cheeky)! These Lindor My Melting Moment chocolates are seriously the bee's knees and are shaped in lovely seasonal snowflakes!

Pip Organic Fruit Juice RRP: £1.50 (each)
Drink Me Chai (sample)

Made from 100% organic fruit and containing no added sugars, London based Pip Organic produce award winning juices and smoothies. This Cloudy Apple juice is really refreshing and definitely ticks boxes from me!

This month's sample product is a Chai Latte from Drink Me Chai. Inspired from travels in India, this sachet contains a blend of spices, milk and sweetened tea so all you need to do is add boiling water - super easy & super tasty!

Montano Cider RRP: £2.79
Cool Dawn RRP: £1.49 (each)

This crafted Italian cider is made using apples only from orchards the highest in Europe (providing fresh mountain air & plenty of sunshine). It's said to be medium-dry, crisp & refreshing and it now has a place amongst the collection of Christmas drinks.

Speaking of alcohol, these Cool Dawn Recovery drinks claim to prevent and cure hangovers. Anything with this description immediately has my attention so I'll have to see how effective they are! It's a herbal detox drink which has citrus and liquorice flavours and it's advised to drink one after a night out and then another the morning after. Perfect for the upcoming party season!

Once again, I haven't been let down by Degustabox! I mentioned in the October Degustabox review that I was a little disappointed in it's lack of drinks and this box has certainly made up for that! Despite this box not containing a Degustabox Fridge item, I'm not too fussed as I still haven't managed to get my hands on the previous one!

This really is a great service and well worth the money - don't forget to use the discount code previously mentioned! Also, on the topic of not forgetting, there's only one week left to vote in the UK Blog Awards here if you haven't already. Thank you in advance!

  23. This is probably my favorite subscription box. Sure I'd love to get makeup and clothes (le duh) but I am the wooorst when it comes to trying new foods. I'm so lazy in the kitchen, so getting a box of goodies each month would literally force me to go play with some pots and make my meals infinitely more interesting. This is super fun!
