Review: October Degustabox

I am already a huge fan of Degustabox having reviewed a number of their boxes earlier in the year so you can understand my excitement when I recently signed up to review the food subscription box for a couple more months. I couldn't wait to see if they were keeping their standards high.

When Octobers box arrived I dived right in and was very happy with the selection of products inside. 


Pasquier Brioche pains au lait and Pasquier brioche loaf - As a huge fan brioche and sweet bread I loved that these Pasquier products were included in Octobers box. We have all enjoyed the brioche loaf in the morning with some jam or nutella. 

Special K BBQ cracker crisps - At first I was a bit skeptical with the idea of these "crisps" but they were delicious. A nice change and healthier alternative from regular crisps. I must admit I ate almost the whole bag in one sitting, oops.

Dr Oetker extra dark chocolate and Dr Oetker extra dark cocoa powder - I have just started taking up baking again so it was nice to add these Dr Oetker products to my baking pantry. I intend to use these in an upcoming bake so I will remember to blog all about it. 

Solo Toasted Marshmallow Creme - This is really up my street. I had tried Fluff before which is a similar product but I much preferred this variety from Solo. Super sweet and very morish. 

Jelly Belly Jelly Beans - I thought it was nice to receive some "candy" in our October box because it seemed very fitting for Halloween. I did sample a few and they were as good as ever but my young nephew snaffled the rest. 

Bear strawberry and apple fruit pieces - Noah loved snacking on these and I think they would be a great snack for in a childs lunchbox. 

Bear Alpha Bites cereal - Another product Noah really enjoyed. Being a sample size it was perfect for my one year old. I softened them up in a bowl of milk and let him feed himself, they were gone in a flash! 

Enhance drink - This tiny little pot of concentrated juice makes a whooping 32 glasses of water a lot more interesting with a hint of orange and passion fruit. A great product if you struggle to drink a lot of regular water.  

Blue Dragon sweet chilli sauce x2 - I'm not personally a fan of sweet chilli sauce. I will eat it but I wouldn't choose it. My partner on the other hand really likes it and has gone through a bottle already. He's had it on many different dishes such as fish, chicken, burgers.

Kent’s Kitchen bengal meal kit - I am always wanting to be a bit more adventurous in the kitchen so this bengal meal kit from Ken't Kitchen is great. 

Degustabox fridge voucher - A voucher for Benecol yogurts which we are still to purchase. I'm always excited when I see a Degustabox fridge voucher inside my Degustabox, I think it gives an added bonus. 

I have to say this month is possibly my favourite Degustabox yet. It was full to the brim of such a diverse range of top brands and new products. Excellent value for money and there wasn't one product that I wouldn't use. I am very excited to see what is in Novembers box!


- I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are my own.
