Degustabox October Review - Surprise Foodie Box & £7 Discount Code!

This is my favourite time of year for Degustabox as I always find that the boxes in the run up to Christmas are the most exciting. The October Degustabox was no exception and arrived last week packed full of surprise foodie treats.

Discount Code - £7 off!: 8TL75

Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out a range of specially selected foodie products. There's always a great mix of new products that I haven't tried before, as well as plenty of treats from more established brands. Each Degustabox costs £12.99, delivery costs are included in the price, and there is no fixed contract involved - you can cancel at any time.

The discount code is a massive £7 off, making the first box only £5.99 delivered! Check out the Degustabox website below and enter the new discount code: 8TL75

Here's a quick round up of all the products I received in the October Degustabox:

Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks: These baked snacks are made from green peas. I've reviewed the Yushoi range previously - check out my Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks Review

I am Souper: A range of 'High Protein' soups that are intended to keep you feeling fuller for longer. I received two flavours; a Pulled Pork and Jalapenos and a Supergreens.

Robinson's Squash'd Orange: A handy little squeezy bottle of concentrated squash. It's supposed to be ideal for on the go but I've only ever used these types of products at home. There are six flavours available with no more than 3 calories per serving. 

Levi Roots Smokey BBQ Coat 'n' Cook: My youngest son is a big fan of Levi Roots ever since he met the man himself (he did a talk for the kids at their school). We're all fans of the Levi Roots sauce and I'm glad to see even more products available in the range. This Smokey BBQ Coat 'n Cook Sauce is a super quick way to add flavour to a meal as there is no marinating necessary - just coat and cook straight away. 

Jim Jams 83% Less Sugar Milk Chocolate Spread: I've tried the Chocolate & Hazelnut version of this spread in a previous Degustabox and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Jim Jams Milk Chocolate spread is just as good with a lovely malty and rich flavour. It's less sugary tasting than other chocolate spread sand has a deliciously creamy texture. 

Pitch Choco Bar: This is a great new product. It's a brioche filled with a mini bar of chocolate! These are already popular in France but are apparently new to the UK. They're individually wrapped and my kids have been loving them in their lunchboxes.

Beloved Date Fruit Hearts: New Beloved Date Hearts are made from 100% date fruit with a hint of natural flavouring. They're cold-pressed and are gluten-free, suitable for vegans and 1 of your 5 a day.

I received four different flavours; Zesty Orange, Cocoa & Berry, Simply Divine, and Rich Cocoa.There are five cute heart shapes in each pack. The orange flavour was a little overpowering but I enjoyed all the other varieties and the soft and chewy texture too. 

Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme: This is such a classic bar and still the best cookies and cream bar around. It's just so crunchy and creamy at the same time. And even better - this one is King Size!

Heinz Kids Dried Pasta Shapes: Who doesn't love a novelty pasta shape? And these 50% whole wheat Minions pasta shapes are just too cute! Heinz already make tinned pasta shapes for kids but I much prefer dried pasta shapes. There are also Peppa Pig, TMNT and DC Superheroes pasta shapes in this range. I'm hoping Heinz will release a Hello Kitty one too! 

Maggi Fusian Noodles: These handy noodle packs come with an extra little sachet of oil and dried vegetable flakes, along with the seasoning. 

I received two flavours; Aromatic Spiced Curry and Fiery Sweet Chilli. Despite the name, neither flavour had too much heat to it (which I prefer) but was still packed full of flavour. I liked the addition of the little dried veggies and oil too - it made them a little bit more grown up then regular instant noodles!

Overall, I really enjoyed the surprise selection in this months Degustabox. Once again, there was a wonderful selection and plenty of exciting new products too. My favourites this month were the Jim Jams Chocolate Spread, Beloved Date Fruit Hearts, Hershey's and Pitch Choco Bars.
