December Degustabox

Christmas came early with Degustabox this year! 
I was in hospital with Blake and Stuart when mine arrived so one of our neighbors took it 
in for me. 

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.

The box has 9 treats for December inside. 

I'll start off with Pukka Herbs which is natures finest fairly traded 
green tea. 
Let the herbs dance in your cup for awhile to release a zing of lemons and freshness of dandelion root.
We are not really fans of green tea in our house so this will be passed on to someone who does. 

Next up we have Eisburg alcohol free wine which I am looking forward to drinking on New Year's Eve to celebrate the start of 2015. 
This alcohol free wine is made the same as the wine you love but with the alcohol removed. 
Available in Chardonnay, Rose, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling. 
This sparking alcohol free wine is also a third of the calories from your usual wine. 

Gloworm is up next which is an ingeniously different first of it's kind premium mixer. 
spesfically blended to compliment a selection of spirits. 
The unique formula is sugar  and taurine free.
Gloworm is available in 4 flavors: 
- Raspberry and Orris for vodka
- Cucumber and Apple for Gin
- Pear, spice and lime for rum
- Ginger and Lemon for Bourbon.

Pukka Herbs £2.39
Eisburg £3.49
Gloworm £1.50 
The Frylight Infuse Garlic is one item I had wanted to try for awhile 
since it was mentioned by people from Slimming world for making your own 
garlic bread and other slimming world friendly meals. 
The Frylight infuse Garlic does away with the need of poured oil and the need of peeling and crushing of garlic.
It's perfect for adding flavor to all sorts of pan fried and roasted for food at the touch of a button.

Popchips is an item I have tried before! They are never fried or baked but popped with heat and pressure 
to make a natural and delicious crisp's. 
The crisp's are full of flavor and less than half the fat of fried crisp's.
There are less than 100 calories per 25g serving too.

Kent's Kitchen have also appeared again with their meal kits which are a 1, 2, 3 step to an authentic delicious meal in just 20 mins.
Use the three clever pots and add a few fresh ingredients to create a restaurant quality meal.  
Ideal for keeping in your store cupboard for when you need some inspiration. 

Frylight Infuse Garlic £2
Popchips £1.79 (sharing bag)
Kent's Kitchen meal kit £2.50
The Chia Co oats and chia are wholegrain oats and chia blended with the finest quality fruits and coconut oil.
These just add water oats deliver a smooth and creamy texture without dairy. 
Chia seeds offer the highest combined plant sauce of omega-3, fibre and protein and is packed
full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Bonne Maman coarse orange marmalade is fresh and zingy and made with thick shred orange peels for more character. 
Spread on toast to let the full flavor of oranges fill your mouth or use it as an ingredient that will make a difference in your savory and sweet recipes.  

Last of all is the Bahlsen Choco Leibniz finest milk chocolate wrapped around an original butter biscuit or oozing with caramel. 
with more chocolate than biscuit its fresh and crisp when you bite it, but so chocolaty when you taste it!

The Chia Co Oats and Chia £1.70
Bonne Maman £2.30
Bahlsen Choco Leibniz £1.79
With regards to this months box I was disappointed with the contents not being Christmassy but overall 
the items in the box are a great combination. 

This month you can get £3 off the Degustabox when quoting the following code:
