FB & IG : @XITEENERGY

I used to take a lot of energy drinks, then calmed them down and now on occasion take them, and this is one brand I have never heard of so I was excited to try it.

Ohhh this was interesting!

It was very light, had a nice taste of raspberry…subtle but a nice amount and very refreshing.

I didn’t feel full like I do with some others, and I did feel a boost in my energy today…I would get this again as it was really tasty and refreshing.

Sun-Pat EXTRA : Salted Caramel Crunchy Peanut Butter

About : Fancy a bit of EXTRA flavour? …Ooh go on then! Introducing a brand new flavour explosion from the makers of The Nation’s Best Tasting Peanut Butter. Loaded with caramel coated peanuts and packed with salted caramel flavour. Epic on toast, pancakes or straight from the jar! 

FB: @SunPatOfficial
IG: @sun.pat_uk

I think Degusta Box has catered this box just to me as you all know how much I love peanut butter and sweet stuff and this is Peanut butter with salted caramel!!!

I tried a little on its own and on a soft white roll.

On its own your hit with an instant peanut butter flavour, followed by a subtle salted caramel flavour.

On the roll, it was exactly the same.

This was VERY VERY nice and I am sure it will be finished very fast! and now I know this exists I will be buying more.

FB: @playinchoc
IG: @playinchoc

This was a new brand for me, but the description sounded really good and I couldn’t wait to check it out.

This was like opening a fancy chocolate, and bringing out a wrapped block. I loved its presentation, and now it was time to taste.

WOW a nice chocolate taste, but very creamy and soft and extremely moreish!!!

If i see these in the shops I will be buying more as I was hooked on the first bite.

Well&Truly : Crunchies

About : We’re a snacks brand on a mission to unjunk delicious snacks, taking all the nasties out whilst keeping that crave-worthy flavour that keeps you digging to the bottom of the bag. We’ve got 6 flavours, each of which have 40% less fat.

All natural ingredients and are totally gluten free.

FB: livewellandtruly
IG: @_wellandtruly

This months box was great as this was another new brand to me, and both descriptions sounded good.

I started with the Really Cheesy one.

The best way to describe these are like cheesy wotsits, slightly crunchier texture, and not as fake a cheese flavour.

For me I felt the cheese flavour could have been a little stronger, but that’s a personal preference.

Now on to the smokey paprika.

Texture just like the other ones, but these had a nice subtle paprika taste.

Overall both are really nice, and due to being 40% less fat these are a great alternative to cheesy wotsits and your other crisps.

These were a perfect snack at work for me 🙂

McVitie’s British Icons Chocolate Digestives : Strawberry Cheesecake

There is nothing like a nice digestive with a tea or coffee, or just as a wee nibble.

In this months box there was these “strawberry cheesecake” flavour Digestives….this sounded very good and very yumm.

Visually they look just like the normal chocolate coated digestives, but now time to bite and taste…

OH just as always a lovely texture and then the flavour came across, a nice strawberry flavour subtle but nice. For me I didnt get the cheesecake flavour more just strawberry, but it was a nice flavour.

Its bad to say that half the packet vanished, my hand just kept going in for more.

Hellmann’s : Garlic & Herb Sauce

About : Drizzle this mouthwatering sauce over your salad to bring it to life, or add to pizza for a creamy herby dip.

FB @Hellmanns
IG @hellmannsuk

To be honest I tend to stick with just the normal mayo, as not sure why I have not been too adventurous in this area but thanks to this box it was making me check out something new.

There were some wraps included in this months box, so what better way to test out the mayo was on a wrap.

I am in love!!!

This really added to the flavour of the wrap, chicken and brought everything together and I loved the whole collective taste.

This is another one I will be buying next shopping trip.

flavour it’s a powerful delivery of health and deliciousness in equal measure.

FB: 9NINEBrand
IG: @9ninebrand

Another new brand in the box for me, this is great as there are so many brands out there its good to learn of others.

So one of them I couldn’t take as it contained nuts, but my mother told me it was very tasty and she enjoyed it.

The other was all just seeds, so I was safe to try this one.

For me I am not used to a seed bar, so the texture was very interesting for me. The flavour was nice, but for me I don’t know if its for me.

If you want a healthier snack option I am sure this is for you.

These are exactly as the package says, little chocolate pots…but did they pack a big flavour? lets try and find out.

How cute are they? and only 100 calories which is perfect as I am watching my weight these days.

I popped one open and tried it.

MEGA YUMMM so soft, smooth and great flavour for something so little.

The only problem with these pots are, you want more but its perfect as just 100 calories…but I was bad and had all 4 as they are mega YUM!!!!

into our products; and our Black Olive Melts are no different.

IG: @carrs_uk

Occasionally I like a good cracker and cheese to nibble on, so I was happy to see this as I have never tried these before.

Black over flavour hmm sounded good as I am an olive fan.

I first tried on their own and they had a nice texture, and then the olive flavour came which was subtle but really nice.

I then tried with some cream cheese, and again yum texture and all the flavours came through and was very tasty…I am looking forward to finishing these 🙂

5 Seconds Kimchi Mix

Unfortunately I was a bad blogger and forgot to take photos of what I made, but I can tell you this is so easy to use and packs a great flavour.

I like finding new drinks and snacks so again this was new to me and I couldn’t wait to taste it.

I chilled it and then poured it out and sat down with Netflix and drank it.

This was very nice, the lemon flavour came over more and was very refreshing. I am glad I chilled this, as I think it probably helped with the tasting.

We reduced the sugar without compromising taste and without the use of artificial sweeteners. The cookies are also palm oil free.

IG: @nibnibs_uk
FB @nibnobsyorkshire

Anything cookie always catches my eye and I can’t wait to eat, so lets see if these tasted as good as the packaging makes them out to be.

Lets start with the packaging, its bright, simple and eye catching now to dig in

I started with the chocolate one, this is very light, and has an ok chocolate taste and a good crunch. I was surprised at how tasty these are, as they are only 90 calories.

Next was the plain cookies, just like the chocolate one these also had a nice taste, and crunch and again really addictive and only 88 calories.

For something low in calories these pack a great flavour, and highly recommended.

FB +IG @NairnsOatcakes

Oatcakes are something I really like, but never for some reason have as I always mean to buy some….and I saw these when I opened my box and went ohhhhhh

Firstly the flavour of these jumped right out at me “Cheese & Smoky Chipotle” these sounded good.

I tried these on their own first, so I could do a proper review and I also tried these with some cheese.

These are so good! even just on their own you get a lovely subtle cheese flavour followed by the chipotle flavour. These were also just as good with cheese, but as I said not needed as they are really really nice.

I highly recommend these.

Woohoo more cookies this was great for me as you can’t have enough cookies 🙂

Again the first thing I noticed was how low the calories were for this, and how nice the graphics and fonts on the branding were.

Now taste time..

Just like the other cookies in this months box, these had a great taste, texture and crunch and again very addictive.

Again these are something that I would easily buy again, as they are light and a great low calorie snack.

Hershey’s : Cookies ‘n’ Cream Bar

Ohh something from Hershey’s and it was the Cookies ‘n’ Cream, this is one I have not tried before so I was looking forward to this.

I have to admit some of Hershey’s products taste ok and some taste really good, so I was hoping this would be really good.

Do you know what this reminded me of? a Milky bar with cookie bits through it…it had the exact taste of a Milky bar.

Yeah it was nice but white chocolate is not my first choice, its always dark but this was very nice and finished in one sitting.

About : Cocoa vanilla protein oat bites: 45% less sugar than the average cereal bar, high in fibre, source of protein, suitable for vegans, made from whole rolled oats

FB: @Grazeuk
IG: @grazedotcom

I love a good cereal bar, ones that are light but actually have a flavour to them which to be honest is very rare.

This was actually ok, it had a nice texture and an ok flavour.

For me personally I wish it had a slightly stronger cocoa flavour, but thats just me and my sweet tooth talking.

Ohhh these were so good! they had that great tortilla crisp texture and a lovely flavour that wasn’t overpowering.

Oh these are very interesting, they are like the normal fruit pastilles but a much better and stronger flavour.

This is the way the original ones should be, these are great!!!! they don’t taste like it says on the packet more just mango, blueberry and cheery rather than cherry cheesecake etc.

Super addictive, great flavours and the packet won’t last you too long so get two.

Ginger drink I am not a fan off really, as the ginger always catches the back of my throat but I am always up for finding something that changes my mind on a specific food or drink.

I put this in to chill, and popped it open to have along side my dinner.

Oh ok so this wasn’t as bad as other ginger drinks for me, I think because it also had lemonade it lessened the ginger kick for me.

This was refreshing and had an ok taste, if you like ginger then this is 100% for you.

Hobnobs are a classic, everyone loves them, people either dunk them in their tea or have them as is.

When I saw these I was very happy, and then I noticed the flavour….Sticky Toffee Pudding ohhh now this was going to be interesting.

I had to take them as is to do a proper review, before I dunked in to my tea/coffee.

Oh I was pleasantly surprised by the flavour, I don’t think its 100% sticky toffee pudding flavour….its more a toffee flavour but it was very very nice.

I love a good dark chocolate bar, and I like Aero as a brand.

I am not a massive mint aero person, so when I saw this one I was very happy and couldnt wait to open the packet and dig right in.

As expected it melts in the mouth, has an amazing flavour and there is no way you can only have a little you have to have the whole bar.

I had actually just heard about Get More Vits a week prior to getting the DegustaBox, as I had heard it was a great way of getting well more vitamins.

I drink a lot of water every day, so drinking water with vitamins is just as easy and simple and better for me so this sounded very good.

After a workout I drank this, this had a nice flavour the mango and passionfruit was just there and not over powering. It was very refreshing, and healthy as it is water with some vitamins in it.

This is something I can see myself drinking more off.

Bull’s-Eye Kentucky Habanero Hot Sauce

This was a new brand for me, and am not a big hot sauce person but always willing to give it ago.

For dinner I decided to have some of this, and see how hot and how it tasted.

This had a nice kick to it, not super hot and once that kicked disappeared which was fast the flavour was really nice!! so nice I think half the bottle was finished.

I would 100% buy this and recommend this if you like hot sauces.

Noodl Plus : Instant Noodles

This looked and sounded very interesting “Turmeric Noodles”, this was new to me as one I have never heard of this style of noodles and two I have never tried them.

I followed the instructions and tasted.

Hmm flavour-wise it was just so so for me, the noodles didn’t have the same texture as normal noodles….a bit more of a bit to them.

As I said it was just so so for me, I am not too sure if I would have this one again.

Get More Vits : Multivitamin Chewing Gum

Another Get More Vids product, and this time its was chewing gum…interesting.

I popped one out the packet, and gave it a chew.

Oh this was very nice, it had a nice peppermint flavour not too strong just there and very nice. It was a little crunchy to start with, then was more like gum.

I really liked this and had one a day till the packet finished, this is something I would be happy purchasing and using on a regular basis.

Ohh this again was a new product for me, and it sounded really good so I couldn’t wait to try this.

I made some homemade sweet and sour chicken, and used this rice along side it.

Firstly the rice was super easy to make, cut the top of the packet and put it in the microwave for a few mins and done.

Flavour wise ohhh so so good and the texture was also good, it was perfect along side the chicken and I have purchased this packet again and can’t wait to use it again.

When I brought this out to take photos and try, I didn’t notice the “brioche” part of the description.

I heated them up and put some butter on them and dug right in.

WOW WOW WOW!!! yes these were amazing!!!
