August Degustabox

I had another great Degustabox delivered this month and it had a real snacky theme and lots of things I haven't tried before. If you haven't heard of Degustabox it's a monthly subscription box priced at £12.99 that delivers 9-14 surprise products, many of the products are new to the market so you get to try them first. 
This month's box contained 13 items from 8 different brands, and this month's product of the month is Barilla, a brand I have am not familiar with at all, so I was excited to try out. This month's discoveries are the Delicious Alchemy Oaty cookie mix another brand I am not familiar with.
I love a bit of a Bahlsen biscuit they are delicious and this month I was presented with 2 of their products this month. Pick Up dark chocolate priced at £1.69 for a pack of 5 biscuits. They are individually wrapped so great for lunch boxes or chucking in your bag. The Choco Leibniz white are amazing cocoa biscuits wrapped in smooth white chocolate, priced at £1.79 I will definitely be buying them again. Walker's is a brand I am familiar with as its my Mum's favourite biscuit brand and there was a selection of 4 Individually wrapped biscuits.
Life Tonics are a hydration drink priced at £1.49 and are flavoured with coconut water. This was handed to the Mr to try as there not my type of thing. Available in 3 flavours and with 5 vitamins and 4 minreals, they also contain no artificial sweetners. The Mr enjoyed it and said it was refreshing. The Barilla penne regate was delicious and I used it to make my Syn Free Chicken pasta, which will be up on the blog soon. I am planning on using the tomato and chilli pasta sauce for some pasta next week. I regularly eat Ryvita so I was pleased to see the sesame and black pepper, the cracked black pepper is amazing with tuna and red pepper on and they are only around £1.50 a pack and a regular in my food cupboard.
I am a regular herbal tea drinker and its a good way to keep my caffeine intake down. The Williamson black tea with ginger has a nice smooth taste, its not a tea I would drink daily but I will definitely drink it again. Its priced at £4 so its a higher end tea, my Mum absolutely loved it and she knows her tea! I always love to see some Dr Oetker in the box and this month there where 3 delicious mug cakes! Simply add the mix to a mug with some water and pop in the microwave, great for 89p each. Having 4 children means having these in the cupboard I can offer cake in less than 2 minutes! This months discoveries product was a gluten free cookie mix, which I haven't had time to try yet. Its priced at £1.99 for the mix and you just add butter and it makes around 12 cookies.

A great box this month with some great products, if you want to try Degustabox you can get £3 off your first box by using code TTIMB at the checkout.
