Let’s see what’s in the September 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.
PopCORNers Carnival Kettle Popped Corn Chips ($3.29) – A full size (7 ounce!) bag of kettle corn flavored popped corn chips. These are made with non-GMO ingredients and are both vegan and gluten-free. Woo! Can’t wait to give ’em a try.
Michel et Augustin Shortbread Cookies ($1.99) – Each of these little boxes contains 6 bite-sized shortbread cookies. The first box features traditional shortbread, while the second includes chocolate chips as well.
Sam Mills Corn & Quinoa Pasta ($2.39) – I’ve been trying to make an effort to eat less gluten-containing products and recently made the switch to gluten-free pasta… That said, I was more than happy to see this corn & quinoa based fusilli in the box! Great timing. 🙂
BustaNUT! Flavored Peanuts ($3) – Okay, that name… Seriously? I’d love to see how their marketing people handle reaching out to distributors. Anywhooo… These are US-grown peanuts flavored with bourbon and maple bacon.
Hak’s Paks One Pot Rustic Ratatouille ($3.99) – An all natural one pot meal starter made with chunky tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, garlic, onion, herbs de Provence, and more. Just add a pound of meat or veggies and dinner is good to go.
The English Provender Co. Condiments ($7.35) – A trio of small batch condiments in glass jars included Caramelized Red Onion Chutney, Luxury Lemon Curd, and Sweet Tomato & Chili Chutney. These traditional English recipes are all made with non-GMO ingredients and are gluten-free.
Sparkling Bitters Grapefruit Mint Drink ($1.99) – A premium, all-natural sparkling water with a dash of tonic bitters. It contains zero calories, sodium, and sugar.
Zolli Drops ($4.99) – Zolli Drops are an all natural, sugar-free candy designed to help reduce the acidity and raise the pH in your mouth. Yep, a candy that’s good for your teeth!
Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal ($3.50?) – This actually wasn’t listed on the info sheet, so I’m guessing it was just a bonus item? It’s a full sized box, so that’s cool. 🙂
Entenmann’s Little Bites Chocolate Chip Muffins (~$1?) – I feel like this brand was just recalled for some reason… I’ll have to look into that. I remember eating these mini muffins when I was younger and I LOVED them. I used to warm them in the microwave for a fresh-out-of-the-oven feel. 😉
Toosum Gluten-Free Oatmeal Bar ($1.79) – A 100-calorie oatmeal bar made without any GMOs or refined sugars. It’s certified gluten-free and vegan too!
Nando’s Peri-Peri Sauce ($3.49) – Peri Peri is one of the most popular South African condiments in the world. It contains a blend of natural ingredients including sun ripened lemons, spices, Peri Peri (African Bird’s Eye Chili), and garlic. It can be used as a dip or to give flavor to just about any meal.
Degustabox is always such a fun box to open. — It’s always absolutely stuffed with products, most of which are full size. My favorite items this month are the quinoa pasta, kettle chips, one pot meal, and the Zolli Drops. — Remember, for a limited time you can get your first box for just $6.99 shipped! — Just use coupon code “LABORDAY16” at checkout.
