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

Primrose's Kitchen: The Degustabox Product of the Month is this intriguing Raw Beetroot & Ginger Muesli from Primrose's Kitchen. It's a very unique and pretty looking product. The flavour combination is also interesting and not one that I've encountered before in a muesli.The muesli is vegan and gluten free, with wholefood ingredients. The zingy flavours didn't really work for me but they certainly provide a punchy wake up call first thing in the morning!

True Nopal Cactus Water: Carrying on the healthy theme is this 100% natural, gluten free and vegan drink made with prickly pear cactus puree. It's a very refreshing drink with a subtle flavour and a delicate sweetness. The flavour is hard to describe but it's very light and similar to an aloe vera drink.

Indie Bay Snacks: Another vegan friendly product, these Sunflower Pretzel Bites have been made with ingredients such as Spelt and Quinoa for a healthier snack. They are also a source of fibre and protein. I really enjoyed these little pretzel bites. The flavour is deceptively simple, lightly salty, but the overall snack is very moreish and delicious.

The Protein Ball Co.: Two packs of Cherry + Almond high protein balls made using raw pitted dates, almonds, free-range egg white protein, juicy sultanas and sour cherries. I had high hopes for the cherry and almond combination and I wasn't disappointed. It has all of the delicious cherry bakewell type flavour I was hoping for alongside a great fudgey texture. There are six little balls in each pack but they're very sweet so I could only eat a couple at a time.

Emily's Fruit Crisps: These crunchy banana chips are gluten free and suitable for vegans and are made with no added sugar. These are super sweet and have a deliciously creamy and strong banana flavour.

Haribo Fruitilicious: Two large bags of fun fruit shaped Haribo made with 30% less sugar. I would never guess that these are made with less sugar as the flavour is exactly the same as you would expect from Haribo. I enjoyed all the different fruity flavour and the little smiley faces on each one are super fun.

Tootsie Roll Midgees: I've never tried Tootsie Rolls before so I was very curious to give these a try. These small individually wrapped candies have a chewy texture and milky, chocolatey flavour. It's a bit like a chocolate milkshake crossed with a toffee.

Kit Kat Chunky New York Cheesecake: Another chocolate that I hadn't got around to trying before. This Kit Kat Chunky New York Cheesecake flavour features a large creamy layer on top of the usual layers of wafer. It's not exactly cheesecakey but it does have a enjoyable vanilla flavour.

I really enjoyed the overall selection in this months Degustabox - there were lots of delicious snacks with something for every taste. This month, I was especially pleased with the Haribo, Indie Bay and Emily Fruit Crisps. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this months Degustabox in the comments below.

I received a Degustabox in order to provide an honest review.


  1. that muesli truly looks like the definition of 'rabbit food' - no thanks!

    tempted to try this again, but then with things like cactus water - maybe not...

    1. lol that's a good description of the muesli. I like the idea of unusual flavour combinations but this one was too far even for me.

      The cactus water was actually enjoyable :)

    2. As long as it doesn't taste like coconut water, which is blurgh! I've not tried an aloe drink - always see them in asian supermarkets and wondered what they were like. It would seem more inviting if it was just prickly pear juice maybe?


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
