December Degustabox

It's Degustabox time! The December box is just in time for the new year, in my opinion, this box is very slightly a healthy one! It makes me very excited for the new year to try out some new and healthier foods, there are some protein and energy nut mixes, some sleep well milkshake, some gluten free products and some cheeky dark chocolate! Not massively healthy then...but still very slightly, sort of a mixture of both! On with the delicious products in this box.


Planters Nut Mixes:
I opened these and instantly thought of Phil, yes I'm a super caring girlfriend! There were two mixes, an energy mix with chocolate covered honeycomb, brazil nuts, walnuts & peanuts and theres was a protein mix with two kinds of peanuts, cashew nuts & almonds. The energy mix is right up my street and I know Phil would love the protein mix, both of which would work perfectly for what we need, I constantly need an energy boost at work and Phil is always after a healthy protein fix.


Sleep Well:
I am very intrigued by this drink and will be passing it over to Phil to test for me! The amazing drink tastes like vanilla milkshake, it is made with Jersey milk and honey and valerian. The valerian is a herb that helps people to relax and sleep and has been used for 2000 years, it is the first I've heard of it but it should definitely work! It can be drunk hot or cold but I imagine it would taste amazing warm!

Candy Kitten Gourmet Sweets:
I was super excited when I found these, they are Gluten Free sweets that taste of Sour Watermelon. I have been meaning to try these for ages and have just never gotten round to it. These Gourmet sweets have natural colours and flavours and definitely have a gourmet price at £3, but I can assure you that as a treat to yourself they are so worth it.


Popchips Galactic Puffs:
Star Wars shaped pop chips?! Oh my!! I was so excited when I pulled these out, I showed Phil and he was also excited, so it would be rude not to share them! I received the Sour Cream and Onion flavour in my box, it's not one that I would choose regularly but as a once in a while flavour it was yummy.


Ryvita Lightly Salted Rye Cakes:
I really enjoyed trying these, they remind me of rice cakes but a little bit thinner, they are made with popped wholegrain rye, and they are naturally high in fibre and low in fat, making the absolute perfect healthy snack addition! I loved having some tuna and cucumber on these as a snack!

Taking The Pea:
I received the Smoked Ham flavour in my box, and I was very grateful since I have tried the Wasabi flavour before. I love these as snacks! They're small pea snacks and contain more protein than crisps and less fat than nuts which make them the most ideal snack.

Coldpress:
I love these juices and drinks! I got Orange in my box, and I love drinking OJ at this time of year as it is so important to try and stay as healthy as possible in the cold weather and with all of the bugs going around!

Robinsons Fruit Creations:
I received the Pear, Blackcurrant & Cherry flavour in my box, not some fruits that I would always put together but I am absolutely in love with the combination. These flavours are aimed at the adults among us and it did not disappoint. It is packed full of fruit and is not weak at all which is delicious!


San Miguel 0.0%:
Another alcohol free beer! And another one for Phil! It's quite nice to have versions of beer and wine that are typically alcohol which have no alcohol in them, for some people at least! But in all seriousness, you get the wonderful joys of Beer without the hangover in the morning.

Mary Berry's Foods:
This was very exciting to unwrap and perfect timing for being healthy in the New Year! The Lemon and Mustard Seed Vinaigrette works well with all salad combinations, I can imagine it tasting delicious with Tuna or Chicken though. Their suggestion is with smoked salmon and potato or pasta salad.

Willies Cacao Black Pearls:
Ooh how luxurious do these look?! I received the delicious Sea Salt Caramel, coated in a fruity Chulucanas 70 Dark Chocolate, little pearls of heaven! These are truly delicious, you don't need too many but boy do you always want more!

Honestly one of the best boxes received, I'm so intrigued by all the products in this box!

You can use the code PU9SR, to get your first box for only £7.99, I can assure you it is worth it!

*The box and its contents were kindly gifted by Degustabox, but as always, all views and opinions are my own.
