I received my second Degustabox this month! Degustabox is a subscription service offering a surprise package of 10-15 consumer goods each month.

The August Box included:

  • ALO Drink
  • Pop Chips
  • Mini Cow Tales
  • Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayonnaise
  • White Lily Grape and Wheat Flour
  • Honey Bunches of Oats Strawberry
  • Oregon Chai Tea
  • Rose of the Dolomites
  • Goya Maria Cookies
  • Vermont Smoke & Cure Mini Meat Sticks

I went straight for the Mini Cow Tales! I used to have a major love affair with Cow Tales back in high school and college. They are so yummy with a caramel exterior and cream filling. The minis are the perfect size for a sweet bite so this was a very welcomed surprise.

Goya Maria Cookies are also a great sweet tooth calmer. They are buttery with the right amount of sugar and crunch so I was excited to see them as well.

For the chocolate lovers, there were Rose of Dolomites milk chocolates with hazelnut and a crisp wafer. Yum! I like how they were individually packaged so you could enjoy at your leisure without having a box of chocolates open.

On the savory end, I’ve never been a huge jerky person but actually really liked the Vermont Meat Sticks. I always enjoy a healthier version of a snack food so I appreciated that they were free of artificial preservatives, added sodium nitrites and used meat raised without antibiotics and hormones. And they were tasty!

I’m actually munching on the Cheddar & Sour Cream Pop Chips while I type – don’t judge me – and they are crisp, light and packed with flavor. Another healthier snack option, I’m all about this bag only being 100 calories!

Something I really love about Degustabox is finding things not just for me. My mom is a chai tea fanatic so it was fun to see Oregon Chai in the box. Having a food blogger daughter has its perks I suppose!

And my husband is a condiment snob so Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayonnaise has gone to good use in our house. I think flavorful condiments are great way to spice up a sandwich.

One of the biggest surprises in this month’s box was the ALO juice. I read aloe vera juice and imagined trying to chug it down with my nose pinched (ya know, how I drink most green juices to feel healthy). Not at all! This was light, sweet with a taste of mango and so refreshing.

Degustabox is a nice reminder of products you just haven’t had in a while or haven’t noticed a new variety. Honey Bunches of Oats with Strawberry was nice to see as I go through major cereal phases and am not into sugary cereals which are basically candy for breakfast.

I have’t used the White Lily White Grape Seed Blend Flour yet, but it looks interesting! I need to get baking..
