Bruce Cost Ginger Beer – Listed Value $3.00
I really love ginger ale and ginger beer. My favorite ginger beer is Reed’s but this brand is really good too. It is less spicy than the Reed’s and really smooth! It’s a nice change from my usual.
Sharwood’s Tikka Masala – Value $4.66
Tikka Masala is one of my favorite Indian dishes of all time. I love the rich flavors, mixed with the cream and spiciness. Sharwood’s included a recipe for a chicken Tikka Masala Pizza to use the sauce if you don’t want to use it in the usual way. The flavor of this sauce was really great – I haven’t had a chance to use it in a recipe yet, but I dipped some warm naan in it and it was outstanding.
Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena – Listed Value $5.99
Balsamic glazes are great because they can be used with so many different dishes. I love using a little bit over a Caprese salad, drizzle it over roasted Brussels sprouts with dried cranberries and slivered almonds, or using it as a finishing touch on pasta or other dishes. This glaze is really great – nice and sweet with the deep flavor of balsamic!
Briannas Poppy Seed Dressing – Listed Value $3.99
Degustabox included a holiday slaw recipe for this dressing in the box this month and it sounds delicious! I popped this open for a quick taste and it was delicious. I think I need to make the slaw (with apples, cranberries, and broccoli slaw) this holiday season!
Beanitos White Bean Chips – Hint of Lime – Value $0.44
These were quite good! The flavor was great, and the texture was exactly like a tortilla chip to me. The only problem is that all four bags of chips that I received came completely bashed. There were no whole chips which is a bummer.
Beanitos White Bean Chips – Nacho Cheese – Value $1.00
These were also really good. They taste like cheese, but a tiny bit like refried beans too. They’re corn free, all natural, gluten-free and vegetarian. I highly recommend trying these.
Haribo Sour Gummi Bears – Value $3.15
Haribo is the gold standard of gummy bears. These were really good – fresh, flavorful, and just sour enough to be fun!
Honees Honey Lemon Drops – Value $2.52
These honey lemon drops came at a really great time. This time of year my allergies act up and my throat gets raw – these were really soothing and I loved the flavor.
Chef’s Cut Real Steak Jerky Chipotle Cracked Pepper – Value $6.99
My husband tried this steak jerky and said it was quite good. The flavor was slightly spicy and the texture was a little softer than most jerky!
Oloves Basil and Garlic Natural Green Pitted Olives – Value $2.00
These olives were really good. I love that they have small packages of more briney treats – perfect for those of us that love olives but won’t finish an entire jar!
Nib Mor All Natural Superfruit Cherry – Value $1.49
I love the dark chocolate with cherries in this chocolate bar. The chocolate was really smooth and the cherry flavor blended so well!
Nib Mor All Natural Superfruit Blueberry – Value $1.49
The blueberry and dark chocolate version of this bar was also really good. Neither bar has any pieces of actual fruit that I could discern but the flavor was definitely there.
Verdict: The value of this month’s Degustabox was $39.57. I think this box is one of the best value food boxes out there right now. You get a great variety of food items and there is usually something here for everyone.
