I’m always so happy to see this HUGE box of awesome treats at my front door every month. 😀

This month’s info pamphlet.

dsc_0310

Oloves Healthy Olive Snack in Basil & Garlic ($1.49) – A great “on the go” snack pack for lunch or any busy afternoon. 🙂 The entire pack is only 50 calories and if you need a little pick me up, then these are perfect. Alternatively, you can use these on a homemade personal sized pizza!

Beanitos Hint of Lime White Bean Chips ($1.00 each) – Love that they’re sending out these chips because they’re packed full of protein and fiber (in comparison to normal potato chips) and they’re great for dipping in salsa. Or going with your Chipotle order. 😉

Beanitos Nacho Cheese White Bean Chips ($1.00 each) – The healthier alternative to Doritos! I definitely don’t feel as guilty when I’m indulging in these.

Chef’s Cut Real Steak Jerky in Chipotle Cracked Pepper ($5.99) – Oh my god, these were hands down my favorite thing in the box. I had never tried this brand before (or at least, I don’t remember trying it before) but these are AMAZING. The jerky isn’t crazy tough so you don’t have to chew it until you have a jaw ache, rather, it’s the perfect consistency and it is still so flavorful that you can’t stop eating it. XD Seriously so good. SO GOOD.

You could have also received four other different flavors/varieties. 🙂

dsc_0315

Torani Single Cup Coffee in Salted Caramel ($7.99) – This it the first month that DegustaBox is trying a “split” item; meaning you could have either received this item or the item below, depending on your profile. Full disclosure I did receive both to review for you guys, so please don’t feel left out if your box only comes with one! 🙂

Torani has such awesome flavored syrups (I have had a lot of their syrups in my Italian sodas!) and these come in perfect single cup servings so you can enjoy one a day (or two, heh). Personally, because I don’t drink coffee, I will be passing these on to a friend! But if I did, you can bet I’d bet at least having one a day. I love salted caramel! :p

dsc_0322

Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena ($5.99)  – The other item you could have received this month! I can never say no to balsamic vinegar – it’s great in salad dressing, as a slight drizzle in sandwiches, and even better with some high quality olive oil to dip bread in. *____*

dsc_0316

Bruce Cost Ginger Beer ($1.50 each) – So excited for this! Even though I’m a little scared of the kick from the spiciness of the ginger too. XD But I love ginger ale and ginger sodas so these are absolutely amazing for me! I think these are perfect for the colder months because ginger really warms you up and with all the fatty goodness you’re going to indulge in during Thanksgiving, you’ll need something refreshing to cut through it all!

dsc_0318

Honees Honey Lemon Cough Drops ($2.75) – If I recall correctly, they sent these out in their first ever box but in a different flavor. I think these couldn’t have come at a better time – at least two people I know are sick right now and would love to have some of these. XD It’s definitely flu/cold/sick season.

dsc_0319

NibMor Dark Chocolate in Cherry and Blueberry ($1.39 each) – YES CHOCOLATE! And it’s dark chocolate with superfruits – so you can definitely feel “healthy” when you have a piece. 😉 I shamelessly gobbled down the cherry flavor in one sitting and it was SO GOOD. Just the right amount of sweetness balanced with the slight bitterness of the chocolate. And there are real fruit pieces inside too!

dsc_0320

Sharwood’s Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce ($4.99) – Tikka masala is my favorite sauce/curry/flavor whenever I get Indian food (paneer tikka masala is where it’s at!). So now that I have an entire bottle of this deliciousness, I’m definitely going to have to go buy some fresh naan at my local farmer’s market and then some paneer and chicken and make my own dinner. 😀 So looking forward to this one!

dsc_0321

Brianna’s Rich Poppy Seed Dressing ($3.99) – I think I may have had poppy seed dressing some time before, but I usually get some kind of vinegairette with my salads. XD But this looks like a great new flavor to incorporate into my meals to change things up because the same salad dressing can get boring after a few days. DegustaBox also suggests that you use it in coleslaw, potato salad, tuna salad, or chicken salad!

dsc_0325

Overall enjoyment: I honestly do not know how they manage to send out so much amazing goodness month after month! For the amount of food you receive, the quality of the food you receive, there is no better food/snack subscription box out there right now. My favorites in this month’s box have to be the jerky, the ginger beer, and the chocolate bars. 😀

Coupon Code: Use DEGUSTA10 to take $10 off your first box, making it just $9.99!
