The Goodies

Jaffa Cakes: Orange and Cranberry

This months box has a festive theme to it, and even the Jaffa Cakes have a festive feel.⠀

I love normal Jaffa Cakes and could easily finish any packet off in one sitting, so I was happy to see them included in this delivery.⠀

The flavour “Orange and Cranberry” sounded very interesting, so it was time to taste and see what it was like.

I took a bite and ohh now this was interesting….I could taste the orange and also the cranberry both together worked very very well.

The orange flavour still came through much much more than the cranberry but mmmm yeah very nice⠀⁠

La Boulangère : Plain Brioche Baguettes

These baguettes are soft, and melt in your mouth! I tried one without anything and had to make my lunch with one.

I made a hame and soft cheese baguette, and couldn’t wait to dig in.

This was really really good, I loved how soft it was and tasty.

I am going to get this next visit to my local supermarket.

Lindt – Mint and Orange Treatbar

I have had these before, and if you haven’t you need to try these….well, anything Lindt as their chocolate products are smooth chocolaty and mega moreish.

Mint :  Normally when it comes to most mint chocolate bars, the mint has a cheap or fake taste to it but with this, it was perfect and really nice.⠀⁠

Orange : For me, any orange chocolate is either hit or miss, as like what I said with the mint flavour its got a fake taste to it….but with this nope really good!!!!!⠀⁠

Pip’s Real Hot Chocolate

This hot chocolate contains no trace of any of the 14 major allergens.⠀

I got hot chocolate in the last box, so couldn’t wait to try this one.⠀

This was a new product for me, as I have never heard of them but since it didn’t contain any of the major allergens I was looking forward to seeing how it tasted.

It smelled really nice, now to taste…hmm for me I have a sweet tooth but I could barely taste the chocolate…little disappointed but I still finished it.

KitKat Santa Chocolate Bar and Pouch

Get into the festive feeling with these KitKat chocolate bars and pouches.⠀

How cute and festive do they look? These would be great treats for kids and adults as they taste really good! and put a smile on your face when you see them.

The Santa’s from the pouch had that instantly recognisable flavour of KitKat and so did the Santa Bar, I have to admit these were finished very fast.


Unfortunately, just like last time, I can’t take these chocolate bars due to the type of nut which I am allergic to… for the review I got help and here is what the person thought of these.⠀

KIND Caramel Almond and Sea Salt⠀⁠:

It was very nice, very tasty and very filling. It was very crunchy, and the hint of sea salt added that little extra taste.

KIND Double Dark Chocolate Nut⠀⁠:

It was quality chocolate, that had a very nice texture and taste to it.

Clipper Tea

Enjoy 24 cups of Christmas cheer with their new tea advent calendar. Its filled with their best selling organic teas and infusion flavours.

Look at this! How cool does that look and what a great idea, defiantly to get you into that Christmas mood.

I made myself a wee cup of tea with tea bag number 1 and this is what I thought.

How cute does the tea bag packaging look, now to the taste.

Lets start with the smell, this had a very christmasy aroma which was really nice. It really started to get me in the festive feel, next the taste.

This had a cinnamon taste, and reminded me of that christmasy pinecone scent and VERY lovely to drink.

Daelmans Stroopwafels – Mini Caramel Stroopwafels

I have never heard of these, seen these or even tried these so I was looking forward to trying something new.

These were the perfect size to have as a nibble, or with a coffee or tea.⠀

The taste for me was just ok, they were nice but since I have a sweet tooth the caramel flavour could have been a bit stronger as it was just there and no more for me.

Overall they were nice, and yup you guessed it the packet was finished not long after it opened.⠀

Maille Dijon Original Mustard

French Dijon Mustard….⠀

I am not really a mustard fan, but since this was French, not English I knew it wouldn’t be too strong so I made myself a little lunch.⠀

The smell of this mustard was very nice, so now to taste how my sandwich tasted.⠀

My lunch was very nice, the mustard had just a nice wee kick to it and a nice taste I enjoyed it very much.⠀

Wolf Blass Yellow Label Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon⠀

How cool is this? Some wine in this months Degusta Box….really nice touch.⠀

“Yellow label wines are bright, fruit-driven and full of flavour” now to see if this is true.⠀


I started with the Chardonnay (2018) let me start by saying I am no wine expert, so I can’t say too many things about it apart from if its nice.⠀

This was a nice light white wine, and I really loved its flavour. Yes, I did taste the fruity notes, but that’s really as much as I can say. I would love to learn more about wine

Next on to the Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon (2017)⠀

I don’t tend to go for red wines, more white or rose so this would be interesting to try as just like the other this was the first time I was trying anything by Wolf Blass.

This was a very nice red, I sipped this one as I really liked its flavour and had it alongside my dinner.⠀

Both of these wines I would purchase, as I enjoyed them.⠀

ZEST Pesto (Coriander and Basil Pesto)

Free from artificial anything.

I am a big pesto fan, pesto in my pasta, sandwiches etc its just a great flavour so when I saw this I knew I had to makes some nice pasta to try it.

This was so good, it really made my chicken pasta taste amazing!!

I would use this again when it comes to buying my pesto.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the products and the DegustaBox

Firstly this is a great idea, you get a box every month with surprise products. This for me was very cool, as I got to try some products that I might never have thought to try.

If you like what you saw and read, check them out even for one box….you never know you may keep it going and get a box a month 🙂
