Let’s see what’s in the October 2016 Degustabox!
As always, everything was shipped in a big (and heavy) box with the Degustabox logo on the side.
A peek inside!
An info sheet listed all of the items inside, as well as brief descriptions, photos, and retail prices for each one.
Hometown Bagel Chicago Style Bagel Chips ($1.99 each) – These crunchy little chips are made from real bagels. They’re made with natural, non-GMO ingredients and subscribers received two of three different flavors: Garlic, Cinnamon, and Everything.
Jones Pumpkin Pie Soda ($1.79) – Limited edition pumpkin pie soda with flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a hint of buttery crust. I’ve alway been too scared to try the oddball Jones Soda flavors, but now that I actually have a bottle I may have to give it a shot. 😉
Barilla Marinara Sauce ($2.39) – We eat pasta at least once a week in our house, so I was glad to see a vegan-friendly marinara in this month’s box. It’s gluten and preservative free and each serving is equal to 2 servings of veggies.
Wasa Sesame & Sea Salt Thins ($2.99) – Crispy flatbread made with wholesome ingredients including whole grain wheat, sesame seeds, and sea salt. Great for enjoying alongside soup, salad, or as an easy snack.
La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Flour Tortillas ($2.99) – Tacos are another meal we enjoy quite often, so we’ll definitely be using these low carb tortillas in the next week or so. Each fajita-size serving has just 45 calories and 4 grams of net carbs.
Barilla ProteinPlus Penne ($2.39) – Multi-grain pasta packed with 17 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber per serving. Unfortunately (for me), it contains eggs. Boo.
Crown Nut Sriracha Almonds ($1.99) – California grown almonds flavored with spicy sriracha and other natural flavors. One pack has 9 grams of protein!
Numi Organic Mini Tea Sampler ($3.99) – A sampler box of 8 different organic Numi teas. Includes Orange Spice, Jasmine Green, Rooibos Chai, Chamomile Lemon, and more! I love variety boxes like this and would love to see them included in subscription boxes more often (as opposed to one single flavor box).
Lovely Candy Co. Super Fruit Chews ($2.49) – Ooh! I’ve had these before and they’re really good. They’re basically a healthier, vegan-friendly version of Starburst with real fruit pieces in each square. Yum.
Palo Popcorn ($0.99 each) – Two different flavors of Palo Popcorn were included. — Bacon Cheddar and White Cheddar Cheese. Both are made with non-GMO popcorn & pure coconut oil and are free of trans fats, preservatives, and gluten.
Energems Dark Chocolate Dietary Supplement ($5.99) – Bite-sized energy supplements made with dark chocolate, caffeine, and vitamins B & D for a quick boost of energy.
Degustabox does it again! Another jam-packed box of both familiar and new-to-me food, snacks, and drinks. The total value of all the items this month was just under $33. Nice! — Remember, for a limited time you can get your first box for just $9.99 shipped! No coupon code needed. (If the link doesn’t automatically take $10 off, you can use coupon code “8717R” at checkout.)
