When I opened this month's Degustabox* I noticed quite a few new brands I hadn't seen before so was intrigued to test them out. If you wanted to see what items have been in the previous boxes you can check them out here.

Meal Items 

From a recognisable brand, these Heinz No Added Sugar Beanz (2 x £0.65) are a new product to the market. These are great to have in your cupboard as an addition to a number of meals, whether this is on jacket potatoes or pouring over some toast. They come with the added benefit of containing no artificial sweeteners, flavours or preservatives. I'm sure many people will have had some kind of noodles at some point. I know they came in very useful during uni, many a cheap meal consisted of a pack of noodles. The Kabuto Noodles (£1.99) are inspired by coconut dishes of Malaysia which are gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians so these would be a good choice to keep as a meal option.


One of the sweet treats included this month was the Diablo (£0.95) chocolate coated wafer. It's a great little snack to have with no added sugar so you don't have to feel quite as guilty when enjoying it. Something more on the savoury side is the Willy Chase's FITCORN (£1.99 - £2.19) that is produced and supplied from a farm in Herefordshire. These are also gluten free which means it's suitable for a larger range of diets. It's good to have a choice that won't leave you feeling guilty for opening. 

There were a couple of packs of Bebeto sweets included in this Degustabox. These were the Cheese Cake Gummies (£1.69) and Candy Crush Gummy Mix (£1.69) which are ideal sizes for a sharing pack. I've had some of the Bebeto sweets in a previous box and really enjoyed them so was excited when I saw these were included this month. Something a little different to be included was the Maui and Sons Banana Chips (£1.00) that are made from the delicious tropical fruits and cooked to perfection in coconut oil and then coated in dark chocolate. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to banana so was not able to try them out. The last snacks item was something different to anything else in this box. These were the Peppersmith Dental Mints and Dental Chewing Gum (£1.50) which could come in really handy.


It was nice to see a brand I recognise with the Blossom Hill wine (£4.99). I received the Elderflower flavoured one which I haven't tried before, so I'm intrigued as it sounds like it should be nice and refreshing. Something still fruity but a little different to the wine was the Coldpress juice (£2.79). As they are not heated, these juices can pack in more taste, vitamins and nutrients than your typical juice. I've tried to find a juice I like so will be interested to see how this one holds up. The last drink in this month's Degustabox was the Koko Dairy Free milk alternative (£1.50). This is made from freshly pressed coconut milk and could be enjoyed in tea or coffee, on breakfast items or even as a refreshing drink.
There was a free gift sample of Willys Apple Cider Vinegar included this month to test out, with a full sized version being £6.95 for a 500ml bottle. This month didn't have that many meal items which was a little disappointing as I prefer it when there are more ingredients I can cook with. That's all for this February Degustabox. If you fancy signing up for your own boxes, then don't forget to use the code 0GAWD to get £7.00 off your order.
