Degustabox always sends a full informational sheet with values, along with recipes and coupons.
Degustabox always includes an informational sheet with the values of each item listed on the sheet. I find that these values are accurate sometimes and not so accurate other times. One example this month is the Entenmann’s Little Bites Party Cakes. The value on the info sheet is for a box of the party cakes (they do add a note at the bottom explaining this but it can be misleading), but subscribers only receive one bag. With that said, I still appreciate the info sheet and the descriptions included with the products!
Alo Refresh Cucumber and Cantaloupe – Value $1.99
This Alo Refresh drink is fat-free, gluten-free, and free of artificial ingredients. It also has less sugar than the original Alo drinks. I enjoyed the flavor of this aloe vera drink, but I found that it was better cold!
Hungry Jack Pumpkin Spice Pancake & Waffle Mix – Value $3.99
I’ve been away traveling for the past three weeks, so I have very little food in my house. When I got home and found my Degustabox had pancake mix that required only water…I heard angels singing.
These were really simple to make – the pancakes only required water and a quick stir. The flavor was really great. Instead of just tasting like pumpkin spice, I could definitely taste the pumpkin too! I topped them with some fresh whipped cream and maple syrup and they were excellent.
Cello Whisps – Parmesan Cheese Crisps – Listed Value $3.99
These cheese crisps are made with only parmesan cheese that has bene aged over 14 months. As soon as I opened the bag, I could smell the goodness! These were really good – way better than any chip I’ve tried lately. I would absolutely purchase these again!
Welch’s Fruit and Yogurt Snacks – Strawberry – Listed Value $2.99
These fruit snacks are low fat, gluten free, and include 100% of the daily recommended Vitamin C serving.
Go Organically Fruit Snacks – Value $3.99
These fruit snacks are GMO-free, gluten free, and preservative free. They are also nut-free and organic (obviously).
The Welches Fruit and Yogurt snacks were definitely my favorite of the two – nice and chewy with the added creamy component of the yogurt. The Go Organically fruit snacks were good but I prefer other brands fruit snacks due to the texture.
Entenmann’s Little Bites Party Cakes – Value $0.60
These are mini funfetti cakes! I love funfetti cake – whether it is homemade, from a mix, or in little pre-made cakes. These were a great throwback to childhood – when I would eat Little Debbie Cakes for lunch every day!
Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter Popcorn – Value $3.70
This popcorn only has 20 calories per cup – this is the perfect January snack. After the holidays and all the indulgence, I can definitely use a low-calorie snack. Popcorn isn’t generally my favorite snack (I hate how it gets stuck in my teeth!) but this was great with some Northwoods Fire seasoning sprinkled on top!
McDonnells Indian Korma Curry Sauce – Listed Value $2.99
After a few weeks of eating pasta and pizza constantly on vacation, I was craving Indian food. I was really excited to see this pop up in my box this month.
I followed the recipe on the back of the package for chicken korma but substituted the chicken for sweet potatoes. I wish I would have chosen a regular potato here since the sweet potato was a little too sweet with the sauce. Chickpeas would be great here as well. The sauce definitely needed some heat added, so I added a pepper to the sauce and it came out perfect.
Prince of Peace Instant Tea Ginger Honey Crystals – Value $2.75
During one of my moments of jet lag, I ripped open a package of this tea to try hoping that it would give me a little pick me up without caffeine. It worked quite well! The flavor was excellent and the tea was very easy to prepare.
Smart Kids Bar – Banana Split – Value $1.08
This snack bar is nut free, gluten free, soy free, non-GMO, and vegan. There are four flavor varieties subscribers could receive; I received the banana split flavor. I really enjoyed the flavor and the texture of this bar. I could see myself re-purchasing these.
One & Done Seasoning – Bonus Item
Verdict: This month’s Degustabox has a value of approximately $28.07. I really enjoyed all of the products this month, which was surprising. Usually, there’s at least one thing I am not a fan of. My favorite item in the box definitely was the pancake mix – it has made breakfast this week really easy and delicious!
