In case you didn't know its only two more sleeps to go until the big day!! To get you in the festive spirit I'm sharing with you the December Degustabox* filled with lots of yummy festive food. I've reviewed a good few boxes of these now but if you're not familiar with them, the Degustabox is a monthly food subscription box priced at £12.99 which always includes 9 to 14 surprise good products, a lot of which are new to the market. This months was a good'un!
I loved the festive theme of this box..
I have seen so many people rave about how nice pop chips are and I can definitely vouch for it that these do taste amazing! These are baked as opposed to fried which makes them a lot healthier than standard crisps. There is less than 100 calories in each serving too, the barbecue flavour is fairly strong without leaving a taste in your mouth, definitely going to try out the other flavours in the new year!
Pukka herbs £2.39
I have been wanting to try out green tea forever now as I know they are so good for you and can help aid a detox. They contain a blend of Sicillian lemons and the freshness of dandelion roots, my new years resolution is definitely to drink healthy teas so these will come in very handy!
Eisburg alcohol free wine £3.49
Never have I ever come across alcohol free wine! This was a perfect addition to the box for me seeing as I can't drink. I never liked the taste of wine anyway but will enjoy testing this out over Christmas, not too sure what it will taste like though.. It's a perfect alternative for anyone else who cant drink or is thinking of giving up alcohol in the new year.
Gloworm £1.50 each
These cute cans can be used alone but are designed specifically for mixers each for a specific spirit drink. They are sugar free but I could definitely taste the sweeteners that were put into these. I tried it by itself but can definitely see that they would be better with an alcoholic beverage as it states.
Bahlsen biscuits £3.58
Bahlsen has become my new favourite biscuit brand since I discovered it in the Degustabox. These biscuits are well known anyway in my household as they are soo good, I've never tried the caramel ones before but can imagine they are equally as delicious. Plenty of these will be eaten throughout the Christmas period!
Kent's Kitchen £2.50
This kit was also feautred in the Degustabox previously. The set contains 3 pots which you simply add to whatever food you're cooking to help create an authentic and good quality meal. It's not really anything I would use with food myself as I have to eat so simply but it's a great idea for people on the go who don't have much time to cook.
Frylight Infuse Garlic £2.00
I swear by the fry light in the original flavour as it's soo easy to use when cooking with food and no issues about pouring in too much oil to your cooking. I didn't even know they did a different flavour, I would definitely be testing this out with omelettes and other meals in the future, it also suggests trying it out whilst making garlic bread which I think would taste great. The spray really is soo easy to use and they last for ages,
The Chia Co £1.70
Chia seeds are so well known for being a super food. This little sachet of oats and chia just needs water adding to it to deliver a a smooth and creamy texture like porridge but without the dairy products. These definitely offer a much healthier alternative for taking on holidays than the golden oats and porridge pots you see in the shops, as they are full of sugar. The sachet alone with the chia seeds offers omega 3, fibre, protein as well as being packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Bonne Maman Marmalade £2.30
Bonne Maman is such a well known brand but it is slightly on the expensive side as far as jams go so it was really nice to receive this in the box. I love the traditional packaging of the jar too. After watching Paddington bear at the cinema I wouldn't be surprised if marmalade sales went through the roof, I'm expecting this one to be delicious for the price!
It was another great box from Degustabox this month with lots of goodies to help us through the festive period and some healthier options which I will definitely be in need of in January! I don't know about everyone else but I cant wait to indulge in some yummy Christmas food now!
