DegustaBox includes a full breakdown of the box value wise, along with a little bit about each product. This month, they also included a little brochure from Barilla and a recipe to use with the pasta and sauce.
Barilla Marinara Sauce – Value $2.08
Marinara is one of my favorite pasta sauces but I rarely purchase it because it’s so simple to make. Barilla has consistently made very delicious sauces and pasta and this one is no different. I really like that it is all natural, and it is made with very simple ingredients.
Barilla ProteinPLUS Pasta – Penne – Value $2.18
This pasta is made from all-natural, vegetarian ingredients. It also has a whopping 17 grams of protein in each serving. It is soy-free but has legume flours that add the protein. I’ve recently found out that I have a legume intolerance and I’m avoiding them like the plague so I don’t get sick. I asked a friend to try this though and they did really like it. They did say that it was better when cooked al dente.
Hometown Bagel Chips – Garlic – Listed Value $1.99
I love bagels…they’re my favorite breakfast to eat when I want to treat myself. I also love crispy, salty snacks. These were the perfect mid-afternoon salty snack. Perfectly seasoned and crispy!
Hometown Bagel Chips – Cinnamon – Listed Value $1.99
These bagel chips were also great. I think they would go well with a cheesecake dip or other sweet dip.
Energems – Value $7.66
These little dark chocolate energy drops are low in calorie but high in energy and nutrients. They have caffeine, vitamins B and D, Niacin, Folate, and a few other things thrown in to give you a jolt of energy. They’re a bit chewy but the flavor was great!
Numi Tea Sampler – Value $3.99
This tea sampler comes with one bag each of Aged Earl Grey™, Rooibos Chai, Breakfast Blend, Gunpowder Green, Jasmine Green, Orange Spice, Moroccan Mint, and Chamomile Lemon. I absolutely love tea, so I was happy to get this! So far, I’ve enjoyed the Breakfast Blend, the Jasmine Green, and the Rooibos Chai and all have been delicious.
Pumpkin Pie Jones Soda – Value $2.00
Jones Soda makes fabulous, high-quality soda. If you enjoy cream soda – their cream soda is the best I have had! This Pumpkin Pie Soda has come out around this time for the past few years, along with some other weird flavors, but this was my first time to try it. I actually liked it more than I thought I would – it was still a bit weird to be drinking a pumpkin flavored soda but the flavor was good!
Palo White Cheddar Popcorn – Listed Value $0.99
Palo popcorn is popped with coconut oil and made with non-GMO popcorn seeds. The cheddar is real cheddar, they contain no trans fats, preservatives, and they are gluten free. That’s pretty impressive! The flavor was great for the white cheddar – perfectly salty and delicious.
Palo Bacon Cheddar Popcorn – Listed Value $0.99
I had a friend try this one and they said that it was quite good too! They preferred this flavor to the white cheddar flavor.
Lovely Candy – Superfruit Chews – Value $1.67
I’ve purchased these in the past and loved them. They’re a guilt-free substitute for Starburst since they are gluten free, all natural, non-GMO and vegan. There are three flavors: cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry. The bag I received in this box were fresh and flavorful!
Crown Nut Sriracha Almonds – Value $0.99
These almonds are grown, packaged and flavored right here in sunny California. The 1.5 oz bag I received contains 9 grams of protein per pack – that is pretty impressive! I did like the flavor of these as well.
Wasa Thins – Sesame and Sea Salt – Value $2.40
These Wasa Thins are pretty good. I think I would prefer the rosemary flavor but overall I really enjoyed these. They seem to be a better alternative to crackers, with their 7 grams of whole grains too!
La Tortilla Factory – Low Carb Tortillas – Listed Value $2.99
These low carb tortillas are also non-GMO and have 3 grams of protein. I practically live off carbs, so it’s safe to say that I probably wouldn’t purchase these on my own. That said, they do only have 45 calories in them, and they taste pretty good!
Verdict: This Degustabox has a value of $31.92. That’s great for a box that costs $19.99! Degustabox always includes a wide variety of items and this month it seemed like they included a few more ‘health-conscious’ picks, which is nice! I enjoyed most all of the items I received and think the fact that they always include a nice variety is a selling point for the box.
