Degustabox: April

This month’s Degustabox was filled with new and exciting new products that I have never seen before. I recognized a few products, but for the most part it was brands that I have never had the chance to try. In this month’s box I received a bottle of Nando’s Peri-Peri sauce ($5.99/bottle), a bag of Lovely Candy ($2.49/bag), a PR Bar ($2.07/bar), Mutti Double Tomato Concentrate ($2.99/tube), a box of Steel Cut Better Oats ($3.99/box), a box of Skinny Girl Peach Bellini Green Tea ($4.99/box), a bag of Wilton candy drizzles ($1.99/bag), Bush’s Garbanzo Beans ($1.00/can), a pack of Bush’s Hummus Made Easy ($2.29/bag), a can of Wild Planet chicken breast ($4.99/can) and three bags of Chiridos ($1.49/bag). This box’s value is $37.26 which is $17.26 more than the subscription price. I absolutely LOVED the variety in this month’s box. The Steel Cut Better Oats were amazing and I’ve already added them to my regular shopping list. The Skinny Girl green tea was also beyond spectacular! I can’t wait to try the rest of my goodies! I really hope Degustabox continues to send more items like these in future boxes!

*Items in this month’s box may vary from what is seen in this post. Since not everyone owns a K-Cup machine, Degustabox is sending Zenify Steady Energy, and Instant coffee as replacements*

Plum Organics: From Babies to Kids

I started using Plum Organics back in 2014 when my daughter was born. We loved their Super Puffs and Little Yums through my daughter’s infant years. Up until recently, I had no idea that Plum Organics made a “Tots” and “Kids” line! Just like their baby products, Plum Organics has an extensive line of nutritional Tots and Kids products! We received samples of their Super Puffs® (Strawberry/Beet) , as well as Little Yums® (spinach/apple/kale and blueberry/fig) from their baby line. We also received yummy Mighty Dinos™ cheddar crackers from their Tots line and Jammy Sammy® from their Kids Line (blueberry/oatmeal and apple cinnamon/oatmeal). The Super Puffs and Little Yums were just as we remembered them! The Super Puffs are made with 7 essential vitamins and minerals, 10% DV Iron, 24 mg Choline, and are certified organic. Because these snacks easily dissolve, they are the perfect “first snack” for babies that are learning to self- feed. Plum Organic Little Yums are baby teething wafers made from whole grain buckwheat and real fruits and veggies! These snacks also easily dissolve making them perfect for little teething babies.  The Mighty Dinos were completely new to us, but my daughter was extremely eager to test them out. Mighty Dinos are made with real cheese, are certified organic, and are packed with 5 essential vitamins and minerals. These cheese snacks tasted much better than competitor brands and my daughter kept requesting more! Although we loved the Mighty Dinos, it was the Jammy Sammy snacks that really stole the show! Each Jammy Sammy was individually wrapped and lunchbox ready! They are made with oats, whole wheat, and ancient grains, are certified organic, and contain no  genetically modified ingredients! These Jammy Sammy snacks were super tasty (yes, I’ll admit I ate more than one)! They taste just like little mini jelly sandwiches, and are packed with protein! My daughter prefered the blueberry/oatmeal combination, but I prefered the apple cinnamon. I am super excited that we were able to try these Pum Organic goodies! Now my daughter can continue to enjoy snacks from her favorite brand and I can continue to feel good about what I am feeding her!

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?)!

Candy Club

This is the perfect subscription box for anyone with a sweet tooth! Candy Club is a monthly subscription box filled with hand selected candy. Plans include a monthly plan for $27.99/month, a 6 month plan for $22.99/month, and a 12 month plan for $19.99/month. You can also upgrade your subscription to include additional candy. These upgrades are 1 addition for $7.99/candy, two additions for $6.99/candy, or three additions for $5.99/candy. Once you pick a plan, Candy Club gives you a quick survey to determine which candy will go into your box. After my survey, I was given three candies. I had the option to approve these candies or choose something else. Since I liked what was in my box, I hit okay and waited for my box to be shipped straight to me! This month’s box included Fini® Sour Filled Watermelon Bricks, Nassau® Chocolate Duds, and Fini® Assorted Jellies.  The sour filled watermelon bricks were extremely flavorful. They are licorish style ropes filled with sour watermelon cream! The chocolate duds were nice and chewy. Each bite was filled with caramel which was nice.  Every bite was a bit different, but everything was filled with chocolatey goodness! The assorted jellies were nice and sweet. They had a huge variety of flavors and I couldn’t stop eating them! On top of my three main candies, I also received green apple salt water taffy! Overall, I think Candy Club is a great investment! I received well over three pounds of candy which will last me well into my next box. Each candy also came in a closable container, so my goodies will stay fresh until I decide to chow down again! Such a fun (and yummy) subscription box!

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)
