Hey Everyone! 🙂

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree.

Hey Everyone! 🙂

So I got my September Degustabox a couple of days. I got it in October as I had cancelled the subscription, but then joined again at the end of September – so they still September’s box out. I’ll be getting the October one soon & I’ll upload a blog about the contents of that blog. Continue reading

Degustabox – August Edition

Hey Everyone! 🙂

Today’s blog is a newish subscription box that I rejoined again last month. I joined Degustabox ages ago & then cancelled due to moving jobs & no longer being able to get it delivered to work, however I know have a new place it can get delivered to – so I’m joining them again.

I love this box sooo much, as you get to try new foods which are coming out – or foods which have already arrived in stores but are pretty much new products. You never know what to expect in your box each month, so it’s a perfect surprise each month. You do get a mixture of stuff in there, so some months you may not like as much as you did the previous month – but hopefully there will be something in it that you like.

The price is £12.99 per month (comment below if you are interested & I can send you an email so you get your first one cheaper) you get 11/12 different products to try. This is obviously going to be sooo much cheaper, than buying the items individually & some boxes have a contents of around £25-£30 worth of products in them, so amazing for saving money. As well as food you can sometimes get drinks, sauces, sweet treats – but everything is edible.


Now that you know a bit more about the box itself, let me run you through the products I got this month:

  1. Tabasco Sauce (RRP £1.99) – Now if you don’t like barbecue sauce, then this won’t be for you. It is a sweet & sticky sauce & also a marinade. As I don’t eat meat, I won’t be using it on chicken or anything, but I will definitely be trying it on oven cooked peppers & other food within the next few days. IMAG1868[1].jpg
  2. Clipper Tea (RRP £1.59) – This is the Lime & Ginger Green Tea flavour. I literally love fruit/herbal teas & have never come across this brand before, so I’m super excited to be able to give one of their teas a try, to see if they are as good as other brands I’m loving. IMAG1872[1].jpg
  3. Aromatic Thai Noodles & Moroccan Couscous NutriPot (RRP £2.49) – Both of these are packed with protein, fibre & 50% of all 28 vitamins & minerals your body requires. I’ve never tried either of these products before or any other from this brand so I’m interested to see what they taste like. IMAG1873[1].jpg
  4. Dorset Cereals Bircher Museli (RRP £3.49) – I’ve tri ed Dorset cereals museli before & they were nice, but sometimes the yogurt I had poured over the top wouldn’t always soak into them properly, so some of them were left a bit dry – however they have apparently simplified the method for this museli making it quicker for the museli to be soaked. IMAG1871[1].jpg
  5. Get More MultiVitamins (RRP £1.45) – I have got the Lemon & Lime flavour this month, but there are a few other flavours that you can choose from. The drinks are made from spring water, natural flavours & contain no added sugar too. If these are anything like Vitamin Water then they are a winner. IMAG1869[1].jpg
  6.  Oloves (RRP £1.oo) – I don’t like Olives, so I won’t be trying these – however if you do these ones are seasoned with chilli, garlic & oregano. IMAG1874[1].jpg
  7.   Mahou Cinco Estrellas (RRP £1.20) – I’m not a huge alcohol drinker & don’t really drink lager, but my boyfriend kind of drinks lager – so I’m sure he’ll try this one out. IMAG1867[1].jpg
  8. Geeta’s Curry Pastes (RRP 2x£1.oo) – I’ve tried one of these curry pastes before & it was super nice. I’m so excited to be able to try 2 different flavours from the range, as they taste super authentic & one of the packets lasts at least twice if not three times – depending how much you are cooking. IMAG1870[1].jpg
  9. Willy Chase’s Fit Corn (RRP £2.19) – I’ve got the Apple Cider Vinegar flavour to try & I’m really not sure how this is going to taste on popcorn. I’m more than happy to try it out, but on popcorn I’m not so convinced the flavour will be working that well. IMAG1865[1].jpg
  10. Rakusen’s Snackers (RRP £1.29 Plain & £1.49 Gluten Free) – These snackers are less than 1% fat & also only have 7 calories in each cracker. These honestly look super cute, with how small they are & would make such a perfect snack either in work or on the go. IMAG1866[1].jpg

I hope you enjoyed my blog & remember comment/email me so I can send you link to a cheaper first box with Degusta.

Gravy & White Wine

Hey Everyone! 😊

So for the past week I’ve been using gravy granules & mixing them with a dash of white wine (add the wine until the top of the gravy is covered) add your usual amount of hot water, pop it into a frying pan with the food you are cooking or over your meat & BAM! Some lush gravy with alcohol in it.

I know most people use red wine with gravy but honestly white wine works just as well.

Let me know what you guys thinks.
