February Degustabox

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 this month has 7 food items and 2 drink items. 



First of all I'll start with the drinks Laimon Fresh is  a refreshing lightly sparkling, lemon, lime and mint flavored soft drink. 
Laimon Fresh can be drank on its own or can simply be mixed with white rum to create a tasty Mojito cocktail. 
I tried this the other day and wasn't too keen really and would have much preferred this to be fizzy.

Next is Peanut Hottie the first peanut butter hot drink. 
The distinct peanut butter taste, aroma and color are the results of real american peanuts blended together,
to create a smooth, velvety, indulgent hot drink. 
This is a great alternative to tea and coffee. 
I am looking forward to trying this out and not had a cup as of yet but have seen this around and it sounds
lovely since I am a huge fan of peanuts.  

Laimon Fresh £1.99
Peanut Hottie £3

Next is Whole Earth's Three Nut Butter. 
which combines the wholesome nutty goodness of cashews, hazelnuts and peanuts. 
It's made with the finest natural ingredients  and made with no added sugar.
I've yet to try this but will give it whirl. 

Melba Thins, crisp toast for night owls and early birds. 
The perfect snack to add a range of toppings to. 
with 10 packs of 5 these are a fab treat day or night. 
I am looking forward to giving these a try. 

Schwartz flavor shots are recipe bases containing a unique blend of herbs, spices and seasonings infused with sunflower oil to help create amazing tasting meals. 
There are 8 different recipes to choose from. 
I haven't tried these and probably wont. 
The reason being I am not keen on the oil in them as I am on an healthy eating plan
where I tend to not have too much oil in my diet. 


Jack Links is the worlds best selling meat snacks company. 
The range includes Jack Links beef snack which is a deliciously convenient to eat bar aimed for busy people,
looking for a healthier snack on the go.  
I'm not really keen on the idea of these snacks but my hubby loves it. 


Whole Earth Three Nut Butter £3
Melba Thins £1.39
Schwartz flavor shots £1.40 for 2
Jack Links beef snack £1.39

Beet it sport! is a natural nitrate brand in the world. Beetroot shots and bars contain  c400mg of dietary nitrate. 
the benefits include lowering blood pressure and improving sports performance. 
I'll be honest here and say I hated it, I think its something that some people will love
and others will hate a bit like marmite.
 My reason being I don't really see beetroot as something that should be 
in a flapjack type bar. I love beetroot and I love flapjacks just not together. 

American Muffin Company produces some of the most deliciously and delectable gluten free, wheat free muffins, cakes, brownies and cookies. 
My box contained the muffins which were really lovely, soft and very tasty both me and Stuart enjoyed these. 

Last but not least is my favorite item in the box Chocolate. 
Lily O'Brien's Ireland's best loved chocolatier, has launched a new range 
of luxury snacking pouches for chocolate lovers looking for an indulgent treat.   
Try the Cocoa cookie crunch, crunchy chocolate biscuit pieces smothered in smooth and creamy milk chocolate. 
I really enjoyed these and they were such a treat and I polished off the pack pretty quickly so the photo contains the empty packaging, oops!
 
Beet It Sport £1.85 for 2
American Muffin Company:
Muffins, brownies, cookies and cakes £2.50 for a box of 6
Lily O'Brien's  £2.60
