Christmas Degustabox

Happy 1st of December everyone! 
Last week I was sent the Christmas Degustabox which I am thrilled with.


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.

This years Christmas box contains 12 items and a mini item. 

So first of all we have two Ryvita items. 
The first is their Crispy Crackers which look lovely 
I was sent the Green and Black olive flavored ones. 
 I have given these to  Stuart to  have as I'm not too keen on olives.
The other flavors available sound great though: 
- Black Pepper
and
-Spiced apple chutney.

The other Ryvita item is their deliciously moreish thins which come in four flavors
-Sweet Chilli 
- Sundried tomato and herb
- Multi-seed
 and 
- Mature chedder and black cracked pepper 
The box contains the latter which I have really enjoyed. 


We then have New Belvita soft bakes promising a softer start to the day. 
They are avaible in three different flavors: 
-Golden Grain 
- Red Berries
and 
- chocolate chips. 
My box contained the red berries one which is lovely. 

Tuckey' proper biscuits are also in the box. 
The proper biscuits digestives are inspired by original recipes and traditional ingredients.


Butterkist have been included with their salted caramel flavored 
pop corn which I have to be honest and say I didn't like.
 I know salted caramel is popularbut I've never been to keen on it.


Nim's fruit crisps are a brand I've not heard of. 
We not keen on this type of thing in our household but Stuart will 
most likely give these a try. 

Hartley's Jelly has you covered for Christmas desserts.
Make fun and fab creations with Black Cherry Jelly and 
Strawberry Glitter Jelly. 

Divine Chocolate is a brand I've only tried a few times. 
The flavor in this box is dark chocolate and raspberry it was lovely but as 
I'm not a huge dark chocolate fan I would have much preferred it be milk chocolate. 


Bourne and Wallis is a range of temporary tasting pickles.
which I am saving for a buffet lunch as I feel they will be ideal to have with 
crackers, cheese, chutney that kind of thing on Christmas eve as I was sent the pickled onions. 

Rekorderlig dry apple cider was given to my husband who enjoyed it.
I'm not a huge drinker and not to keen on cider so was definitely something I know Stuart would like to have unwind after a hard week at work. 

Branston Orchard Fruit Chutney is also going to be had with our Christmas eve buffet.
But I'm thinking of trying out the Orchard fruit chutney and walnut scones recipe that was included in my box too. 



Also included is Teisseire flavored drops for adding to coffee or hot chocolate. 
I received two flavors vanilla and caramel and am looking forward to adding these to my drinks. I am a fan of flavored coffees and hot chocolate's this time of year so this will 
hopefully help me save £s by not going to costa as much. 

Last of all is a Bailey's mini. 
I'm not normally keen on Bailey's but am tempted to try out the
flat white martini that was included in the box.

What do you think of this months box?

  4. Sounds like a pretty nice one for Christmas, lots to use in festive ways. I really like the Ryvita thins anyway but the crispy crackers in olive flavour sound yum too, they'd be perfect with cheese.
