Degustabox September Box: Review & Discount Code!

A quick review of the latest surprise foodie box from Degustabox. These boxes are always packed full of new groceries and would make a wonderful gift for the foodie in your life. As always Degustabox have provided a discount code for my readers:

About Degustabox & Discount Code8TL75

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 round up of all the products I received in the latest Degustabox:

Virtue Energy Water: Two cans of a brand I've never tried before - Virtue Sparkling Energy Water. Its a zero sugar, zero calorie drink that provides the same amount of natural caffeine as a cup of coffee. I received two flavours; Lemon & Lime and Berries. These have a subtle fruity flavour without any sweetness - it's definitely one for fans of sparkling water only.

Green's Egg Custard Mix: A little box of Green's Creamy Egg Custard Filling. The instructions are super easy and just need a pre-cooked pastry base and a little nutmeg to create a large custard tart. I'm looking forward to giving this a go!

San Miguel Gluten Free: Degustabox subscribers choose between an alcoholic or a non-alcoholic box. This bottle of San Miguel Gluten Free is included in the alcohol version only. It's a premium gluten free world lager and is now available at Tesco.

Miso Tasty: This Original Ramen Noodle Kit is included in the non-alcoholic version of the Degustabox only. Each kit contains 2 x noodle nests, 2x white miso paste and 2 x seaweed garnishes . I love noodles as a quick lunch and this ramen noodle kit was super easy and tasty.

Knorr Concentrated Stock: I usually just buy stock cubes so I was interested to find this bottle of concentrated Rich Beef Liquid Stock from Knorr. It's useful for just adding a few drops to sauces for an instant rich and meaty flavour.

Dream Rice Quinoa: A new plant based milk alternative with added calcium and vitamins. I always use dairy free products for adding to cereal and also for tea/coffee drinks. This Dream Rice Quinoa is perfect for cereal and has a creamy texture with a subtle rice flavour. Unfortunately I found it wasn't suitable for hot drinks as it mostly curdled straight away (I tried it cold from the fridge and room temperature).

Latin American Kitchen by Santa Maria: I've seen this new range in several supermarkets and it looks very appealing with a full range of Latin American flavours and meal ideas. I received the Coconut & Chilli Rice and a Peruvian Garlic Tomato Sauce. This is the Degustabox Product of the Month and there are five different rice flavours and five different sauces available!

Nestlé Cheerios Oat Crisp: A massive box of Cheerios Oat Crisp is also included in the September Degustabox. I reviewed the Cinnamon version of this cereal last year here- Cheerios Cinnamon Oat Crisp Review and it's since become on of our favourite cereals. We've both enjoyed this version too. It's just as delicious and we usually have it as a sweet topping to a plainer cereal like bran flakes.

Green & Black's Velvet Edition: A delicious looking new range from Green & Black's. The 70% Dark Chocolate variety is made using the finest Ghanian cocoa and is flavoured with Madagascan vanilla. I might save this one for baking as I don't usually enjoy dark chocolate on it's own.

Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna Steaks: This is ranked #1 in the US by Greenpeace for sustainability and is canned without any water or oil added. The tuna itself is much paler than the tinned tuna I'm used to and has a meatier and less 'fishy' flavour. It's absolutely delicious and I'll definitely be looking out for this brand in future.

Mentos Mints: A sharing pouch of Mentos sweets in Mint and Spearmint flavours. My son was excited to find this in the Degustabox as Mentos are his favourite!

Also included in the Degustabox was a 'fridge' voucher for a free pack of Seriously Spreadable Mature Cheddar Squares which are a fresh product and obviously couldn't be included in the box. Overall I was pleased with the wide selection of different products in the September Degustabox - there were plenty of useful groceries for my family. This month, I was especially pleased with the Wild Planet Tuna, Nestlé Cheerios and Latin American Kitchen. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this months Degustabox in the comments below.
