Degusta-Box-March-2017-info-sheet

Degustabox always sends a full informational sheet with values (I always double check these values and add in the current value of the product that I find online, just to ensure that I am giving a correct value judgment!), along with recipes and coupons. I find that these values are accurate sometimes and not so accurate other times. With that said, I still appreciate the info sheet and the descriptions included with the products!

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Boboli

Boboli Original Crust – Value $3.77

I have tried Boboli pizza crusts in the past, and I generally really enjoy using them as a quick alternative to making my own dough. So I was pretty excited to see one in my Degustabox this month.

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Pizza

I decided to make a cheese pizza one night when my husband was away for work, and was planning to start some dough when I remembered this was upstairs. Naturally, this was the easier alternative, so I whipped this pizza up quickly. It was delicious! 

Boboli crusts have a great taste, but the texture can sometimes be lacking. I’ve found that baking them on a pizza stone helps with that!

Degusta-Box-March-2017-pasta-Crackers

Tolerant Foods Balanced Blend Organic Chickpea Pasta, 8 oz. – Listed Value $4.99

This looks like a new product that hasn’t yet hit the market. It has 14 grams of protein per 3 oz serving and 40% of your daily fiber intake. This pasta is gluten and allergy-free: it’s made with legumes and rice. Ironically, I can’t try this, because I have a legume intolerance (fancy that), but I think these would be perfect those looking for a high-protein, gluten-free alternative!

Good Thins Sweet Potato Crackers, 3.75 oz. – Value $2.56

These crackers have no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no cholesterol, no partially hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. 

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Good-Thins

These Good Thins are really amazingly tasty. They do lean to the sweeter side of the scale, so I think they would pair well with a salty, strong cheese like asiago or sharp cheddar. I ate quite a few of these in one sitting!

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Cookies

Loacker Gran Pasticceria Tortina Dark-Noir Cookies, 63 g. – Value $3.20

These are like the grown up version of a Kit-Kat. The wafer and creamy dark chocolate pairs so well with the hazelnut cream! I loved these and was sad that I only received 3 cookies! I will savor these for sure. 

Mrs. Thinster’s Cookie Thins – Chocolate Chip, 4 oz. – Value $2.99

I’ve tried these in the past and they’re quite good. I always enjoy getting them since they’re pretty low calorie for a sweet treat! 

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Goya

Goya Quinoa Blend, 6 oz. – Value $2.79

This quinoa blend has black beans, bell peppers, and spices in it. It is gluten-free, high in fiber, vegetarian, whole grain and free of trans fats. 

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Quinoa

I followed the instructions exactly on this – boil 1.5 cups of water, dump in rice/quinoa mixture, boil for 30 seconds, cover tightly and reduce to low for 15-17 minutes. When I tried this, it was still hard as a rock. Since we were getting ready to eat dinner, I wasn’t able to fix it, so I just tossed it. The flavors were good, but definitely add more liquid than it requires, and boil it a bit longer if you find that it isn’t quite done. 

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Croissant-Quinoa-bar

7 days Soft Croissant – Peanut Butter Creme and Jelly, 2.65 oz. – Value $1.07 (buy a case of 24 for $25.76 at Round Eye Supply)

This croissant had a good flavor and was quite soft. I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a croissant though – it was more like bread. Croissants, to me, have that crispy, crackling outer crust, with the flaky layers inside. I think that’s hard to capture in a packaged baked good.

Paul’s Quinoa Bars – Nuts, Seeds, and Honey, 5-pack – Listed Value $7.49

This product doesn’t seem to be available in the States! The sites I found for it were UK-based and I wasn’t able to find pricing to confirm the price listed on the info sheet. Either way, I found these were quite good – soft, with that honeyed taste that I love! I would definitely eat these when I needed to grab a bar, so I hope they become available here soon!

Degusta-Box-March-2017-Energems-Coco

LemonCocco, 12 fl oz. – Value $1.99 (buy a 12-pack for $23.99 on LemonCocco)

This drink is not carbonated and naturally flavored with coconut and lemon. I found that I liked the balance of lemon and coconut here. It was really delicious cold and definitely had a tropical vibe to it!

Energems Chocolate Energy – Mint Dark Chocolate, 7 servings – Value $6.99

I received these in a past Degustabox but in the dark chocolate flavor. My last batch was slightly chewy, while these are much more crunchy. The mint flavor is pretty faint here, which is nice! I like these, but I’m not sure I would add them to my daily vitamin ritual due to the cost (let’s be honest – I barely remember to take my vitamins). They have caffeine and Vitamins B and D. 

Verdict: This month’s Degustabox has a value of $37.84. As always, Degustabox has an excellent value. I find that they are consistently over the cost of the box ($19.99) and they include a wide variety of new (and older) products for their subscribers to enjoy. I kind of love the fact that there’s no real curation for a theme, and they just include, what seems to be, a random selection. It’s fun for me!

Have you tried Degustabox yet?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. This is BY FAR my favorite subscription box. It came in the mail and I brought it with us to the hospital (family member was in the ER (allergic reaction)) and it kept the kids busy digging through it and discovering new things. I was kind of disappointed that the pizza crust had a short shelf life, but I suppose that’s because it’s bread and not processed food. I REALLY want to try the cheese whisps, so I am hoping they make it back into a box. We were thrown off by the lemon/coconut drink. My kids were expecting lemonade and its much heavier on the coconut side. I wish we would have gotten the white chocolate loakers cookies, but the dark chocolate was devoured just the same! I loved the chocolate chip thins- taste just like crunchy homemade cookies! I CAN’T WAIT for our next box!

  2. I devoured the thin chips and both cookies. I might buy some more of the Loacker on Amazon, but they are not cheap! The chick pea pasta was ok, I just put some butter and salt but unlike regular pasta, I could only eat so much. I guest my least favorite things were the Goya (don’t like that flavor) and the energy supplements. Those Quinoa bars had such great flavor, but they were so seedy!
    As usual cant wait for the next delivery.

    • So frustrating to find a product I love and can’t find it anywhere to purchase except Amazon and as noted by Michelle, expensive, definitely not $3.20! When I followed the link for the Loacker posted in the review, it told me my zip code was not valid for Singapore.

  3. This month was a big improvement over last month, which featured 3 different repeats from my past boxes. Those hazelnut cookies were awesome for sure.

  4. This is a great sub. They always send early in the month and the value is usually worth the price. I find out of all my food subs, I use most of the items and the value is better. I would get rid of all my other snack subs over this one! Keep it up, Degusta!

  5. This all likes super nice! Thinking of subscribing…. I’ll wait for April’s spoilers first!

  6. I was really impressed by this sub, March was my first month and was happy to get everything they sent. The sweet potato thins are my new favorite go to snqck, we’ve already repurchased them. I got the milk chocolate version of the round wafer things and it was AMAZING. We also got a different pasta, ours was beet flavored. I actually made it last night for dinner tossed in garlic butter and salted mushrooms. It has an off texture compared to common pastas but it was still really good. We’ve eaten everything but the rice and the lemon drink, and because it was my first month I also got the cheese crisps and the spices almonds AND for only $9.99, so impressed. We decided to keep the sub, I’m excited to see what next month brings!
