Degustabox: March

In my opinion, this month’s Degustabox was mostly about being healthy. Usually we have a ton of snack foods which this month’s box did not have. However, I was equally as impressed with all of the healthy foods included in this box. Inside this month’s box we had a box of Good Thins ($3.69/box), a bag of Mr.Thinster’s ($2.99/bag), a box of Tolerant Foods ($4.99/box), a box of Goya Quinoa Blend ($2.99/box), a box of Loacker cookies ($3.99/box), a box of Paul’s Quinoa ($7.49/box), a bottle of Energems ($6.99/bottle), a 7 days snack ($1.49/pack), a bag of Boboli pizza dough ($4.99/bag) and a can of Lemoncocco ($1.59/Can).  That is a total value of $36.21 which is $16.21 over the price of the subscription. Other than the Loacker cookies, Good Thins and  Energems, everything in this box was new to me. I was excited to try so many different brands (especially the Mrs.Thinster’s and the 7Days croissant). Although this wasn’t my favorite Degustabox, I was extremely excited to learn about some great new brands! These are things I would have never grabbed off of the shelves myself (which is the point of a subscription box, right?)!

Degustabox: February

This month’s Degustabox was short and sweet. We see some returning snacks, as well as a few new brands. This month’s box features Popchips Ridges ($1.59/bag), Grace Foods coconut chips ($2.99/bag), Walkers shortbread cookies ($4.49/box), Nando’s peri-peri sauce ($5.99/bottle), Slendier organic konjac pasta ($2.49/box), Ricola lozenges ($13.99/box), PR Bars ($2.07/bar), Jones soda ($1.79/bottle), and Green & Black’s pure dark chocolate ($3.49/bar). I was extremely familiar with the Ricola, Popchips, and Jones soda. The other items are fairly new to me. I have also seen the Nando’s peri-peri sauce in a previous Degustabox, so it was nice to see it make a reappearance. The Slendier organic konjac pasta was definitely the most interesting product in this month’s box. It is an Australian brand and is a great noodle/rice alternative for people wanting to lose weight or eat healthier. The noodles are already cooked and simply need to be warmed up. The Grace Foods coconut chips were also exciting. I ate them straight out of the bag, however I believe these would make a great topping to some chocolate ice cream! The PR Bar was pretty good. I liked that it was gluten free and offers some natural energy. I was not let down by this month’s box. My daughter has already claimed the  Popchips Ridges and Walkers shortbread cookies for herself!

Degustabox: January

I was super excited about the products inside this month’s Degustabox. Like I said last month, this subscription just keeps getting better and better! This month’s box has a value of $31.41 which is $11.41 more than the cost of the subscription. This month’s box featured a lot of brands that my family and I are extremely familiar with along with one or two new brands. Our products included Welch’s Fruit n’ Yogurt snacks ($2.99/box), Jolly Time Healthy Pop popcorn ($3.49/box), ALO Refresh ($1.99/bottle), McDonnells Korma ($2.99/pack), Prince of Peace Ginger Honey Crystals ($2.00/box), Go Organically fruit snacks ($3.99/box), Entenmann’s Little Bites Party Cakes ($4.69/box), Hungry Jack Pumpkin Spice ($3.99/box), Cello Whisps ($3.99/bag) and Live Smart Kids bar ($1.29/bar). This was one of my daughter’s favorite boxes to date. She loved the fruit snacks, especially the new Welch’s yogurt snacks. She also really loved the popcorn which was in a convenient sized serving bag. We buy the Little Bites and Hungry Jack  often, so it was nice to find  familiar products in the bag as well. The Cello Whisps were my favorite new find of this month. I tossed them into my salad as an easy topping, but also ate them straight out of the bag for a quick cheese snack. I look forward to trying the McDonnells Korma curry sauce as well! Again, I was not let down by Degustabox’s wonderful variety.

Whisk and Flour

I really love to bake, but I am definitely no Betty Crocker. This Whisk And Flour subscription box was made especially for people like me!   I couldn’t mess this up if I tried! It came with a recipe, as well as PRE-MEASURED ingredients! This month’s recipe was “Cherry Pistachio Biscotti” which is a crunchy oblong-shaped biscuit! Whisk And Flour provided all ingredients except for the butter and eggs, which obviously wouldn’t do well in a shipment. This “Cherry Pistachio Biscotti” recipe came with baking powder, salt, lemon peel, sugar, flour, chopped pistachios, and dried cherries. Although everything was pre-measured, the recipe card listed the exact amount of each ingredients needed so that I can recreate this recipe again later if I like it. All I had to do was follow the step-by-step instructions using my pre-packaged ingredients and BAM! I had to much fun making this with my daughter because I didn’t have to focus on measuring, or cleaning a ton of bowls and cups! I was able to focus on simply mixing and baking! This subscription box is absolutely perfect for our family, and I can’t wait to see what we can make next month!

Cookie Luv

Cookie Luv is officially one of my favorite subscription boxes. Each month, Cookie Luv sends out a box of featured homemade cookies made with premium ingredients. These cookies can only be found in a good bakery and are not usually sold online! For $32.99 a month, plus $6 shipping you could get these yummy cookies sent straight to your door! You can even prepay and recieve a 10% discount with their “set it and forget it” style subscription. I got the chance to try their chocolate hazelnut bites which is their upcoming January cookie.  It is a chocolate cookie coated in toasted hazelnuts and it is filled with caramel and chocolate ganache. This cookie literally melted in my mouth! It was so soft and the caramel in the middle was amazing. I really loved how each cookie was individually packaged. This made it much easier to share with my friends. We are all able to simply grab a pre-packaged bag and go! This box would be amazing to send to friends as a birthday present, anniversary gift, or just a nice surprise. I can’t wait to test out the rest of their 2017 featured cookie lineup!
The spring 2017 cookie lineup:
  • January: Chocolate Hazelnut Bites (chocolate cookie coated in toasted, chopped hazelnuts and filled with creamy caramel and rich chocolate ganache)
  • February: Linzer Tarts (Raspberry jam sandwiched between two blissful, crumbly, almonds cookies)
  • March: Rainbow Cookies (colorful cake-like cookie made with layers of real marzipan and raspberry jam, all coated with premium chocolate)
  • April: Lemon Sandwich Cookie (perfect bite-size sandwich cookies give a pop of intense lemon flavor balanced by two sublime buttery cookies)
  • May: Almond Fingers (revel in crunchy bits of almond as you bite into this addictive cookie dipped in luscious chocolate)

Degustabox:December

I am so excited about this month’s Degustabox! I feel like these boxes just keep getting better and better! This month’s box was filled with more brands that I eat on a regular basis. I received Pillsbury Purely Simple Cupcake & Cake Mix ($3.29/box),  Pillsbury Purely Simple frosting mix ($1.99/bag), Kala Beans ($3.99/bag), Honey Acres ($20/100 pack), Chips Ahoy THINS ($3.79/box), Smucher Fruit & Honey spread ($3.49/jar), Urbane Grain ($2.99/ container), Ricola Herbal Immunity ($13.99/box), Good Thins ($3.69/box), Loacker Gran Patisserie ($3.05/box), and Wise popcorn ($3.49/bag). Although I was extremely familiar with the brands included in the box, the products themselves were new to me. For example, I eat Pillsbury often, however I have never seen the Purely Simple line! This line includes no artificial coloring, preservatives, or flavors and offers a nice homemade taste. I can’t wait to try those out! I also faithfully keep Chips Ahoy cookies in our home, but have never tried their Thins. I was super excited to see that these were cinnamon sugar flavor because I love everything cinnamon! My daughter was happy to find the Wise popcorn in our box because she is OBSESSED with popcorn. The white cheddar flavor was awesome and I had to stop her from eating the entire bag! I think the thing I am MOST excited to try from this box, would be the Smucher Fruit & Honey spread. I received the Strawberry Jalapeno flavor which I thought would be an interesting mix. I tasted a bit on a spoon and I love it! I can’t wait to pair this with some of my favorite snacks! This month’s box has a value of $43.76 which is $23.76 more than the subscription cost! I am super eager to see how Degustabox tops this next month!

Sunkist® Snacks

I don’t like giving my daughter sugary snacks, which is why Sunkist® Snacks are some of our favorites! Their fruit chips medley and their trail mix are two of the very few things I feel comfortable letting my daughter snack on throughout the day. The Sunkist® Fruit Chips are super convenient in easy grab-n-go bags. They are 100% pure fruit and are never fried or baked. We received fruit chip medleys in three of their top flavors which includes strawberry mango, pineapple mango banana, and blueberry pineapple. Although they are all bursting with flavor, my daughter’s favorite was the strawberry mango. I on the other hand, prefered the blueberry pineapple! We both really love how lightweight and crispy these chips are. Their trail mixes are also phenomenal. Using premium fruit and crunchy nuts, these trail mixes are honestly one of a kind! We received three of their flavors which included ginger peach, kiwi cantaloupe, and guava chili mango. My daughter and I are both completely obsessed with the kiwi cantaloupe mix. I was unsure about the guava chili mango flavor, however I love that one as well!  I can’t wait to try some of their other flavors like their mango dark chocolate! Overall, Sunkist® does an amazing job at providing healthy snack alternatives at an extremely affordable price. Their snacks are both mom AND toddler approved!

MunchPak

I am in complete snack heaven reviewing this MunchPak subscription box. The only thing I like better than snacks, is having them mailed straight to my door! MunchPak offers three size subscriptions which include the MunchPak Mini (5-6 Snacks/$9.95), the MunchPak Original (10+ Snacks/$19.95), and MunchPak Family Pak (20+ Snacks/$39.95). You can even customize how often you would like snacks to be sent (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly). Unlike other snack subscription boxes I found MunchPak to be extremely unique because I am able to customize my box to include preferred and non-preferred snack types (nuts, salty, sour, sweet, spicy, chewy, crunchy, gummy, seafood, meat, candy, chips, cookies, foreign, or american) as well as tea or coffee to drink! Although I didn’t customize my box this month, I was fairly impressed with the varity of snacks I received. I received a few chocolate, a few sour, a few sweet, and even a soda! The only thing I would change about this box, would be to include a clearly labeled paper that explains what the foreign snacks are. Other than that, I found this box to be excellent and worth every penny!

Degustabox: November

I was super excited to recieve this month’s Degustabox in the mail! Again, I was not disappointed! My November Degustabox included a jar of Briannas dressing (retails $3.99/jar), two NibMor bars (retails for $1.39/bar), a bag of Honees (retails for $2.75/bag), two Bruce Cost ginger beer (retails for $1.50/can), one jar of Ponti Glaze With Balsamic Vinegar Of Modena (retails for $5.99/jar), one bag of Chef’s Cut Real Jerky (retails for $5.99/bag), four bags of Beanitos (retails for $1.00/bag), a jar of Sharwood’s Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce (retails for $4.99/jar), a bag of Oloves Healthy Olive Snacks (retails for $1.49/bag), and a box of Torani Single Cup Coffee (retails for $7.99/box). That is a retail value of $41.58 which is $21.58 over the subscription cost! My favorite find this month was definitely the Oloves olives! It was the perfect snack size and easy to pack in my lunch! I also really loved the Chef’s Cut jerky which was super moist! The Bruce Cost ginger beer was a bit odd. Although it was nice to try and experience new flavors, it was a bit too bitter and spicy for my taste. Overall, another great box from Degustabox! Can’t wait to much on my other goodies!
