October Degustabox

Last week my second Degustabox arrived which I was rather excited about since I loved last months box! 
For those of you not familiar with Degustabox they are a food box subscription service and 
every month they select and send out an exciting range of new and limited edition products from
a range of fab foodie brands.

As you can see below this months box has again got some very tummy treats! 
They have picked 11 brands for this box with 14 yummy treats. 

In the box we have first of all two lovely items from Brioche Pasquier. 
The sliced brioche loaf which I am going to use to attempt making my first ever
bread and butter pudding!
 The loaf is ideal for anytime of day and versatile as a snack, meal or as an ingredient
The second is the Pain Au Lait with chocolate chips which are soft and tasty and were gone within 
3 days as I kept having them for breakfast and as a snack. 
Brioche Pasquier Sliced Brioche Loaf (£1.69) Brioche Pasquier Pain Au Lait with Choc Chips (£1.60)

Next up we have Special K Cracker Crisps New Sharing Bag.
I am a huge fan of Special K's cracker crisps.
With less an 60% fat than the average fat content of most other brands in the UK and ROI
they are fab alternative to your usual crisps.
They come in 4 yummy flavors Sea Salt and Balsamic Vinegar,Sour Cream and Onion, Sweet Chill and
last of all Barbecue. 
 They can be brought in most stores and are sold in 23g individual bags, 80g sharing packs and
4 x21g multi-packs.

Moving on we have Solo Marshmallow creme which is delicious spreadable sweet marshmallow treat 
that offers amazing versatility as a baking ingredient. 
Which also tastes amazing straight from the tub! 
Available at and selected other outlets Solo Marshmallow creme comes in original and toasted flavors.

They are gently baked into playful paw prints. 
There also includes a sample of Bear Alphabites which are crunchy cereal letters made with 5 tasty grains and delicious coconut blossom nectar.

Blue Dragon Sweet Chili Sauce is the UK's best tasting sweet chili sauce its quick and easy 
to use to make everyday food taste great. 
We have used this so far to make sweet chili chicken with rice which was lovely and am looking
into some ideas for other uses.

a light and fruity drink. Made with real fruit juice and no added sugars Enhance is only 1 calorie per drink. 

The hubby's favorite in the box comes next with Jelly Belly jelly beans!

Jelly Belly is an ultimate flavor adventure.
