It's here, the LAST MONTH OF THE DECADE. I know its a cliche but this year has absolutely flown by!

But anyway, a new month, means a new DegustaBox. Let's see what treats we have this time...

Degustabox December 2019 review on Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey

The theme of this month is GOURMET & FIESTA! 

Oteas Green Tea, Cranberry, Cherry & Strawberry £3.39

Oteas Green Tea, Cranberry, Cherry & Strawberry £3.39 in degustabox December

This classic tea has been enhanced by cherry, cranberry, lemongrass and bamboo leaves and complemented by apples, strawberry and cornflower blossom. This combination of flavours sounded really intriguing! We all sat down mid-afternoon for a cuppa and thought the flavours were lovely!

Candy Kittens Tropical Mango £2

Candy Kittens Tropical Mango packet in degustabox December 2019

I really like the Strawberry Candy Kittens so was excited to try out their Mango flavour - which contains real mango juice. The sweets are vegan, gluten and dairy-free and use natural colours and flavourings only.

UFIT Crunchers Sea Salt and Vinegar (gift)

UFIT Crunchers Sea Salt and Vinegar packet in degustabox December 2019

UFIT crunchers offer the ultimate high protein and healthy on-the-go snack in the form of a high-protein popped chip. These are great guilt-free treats as they are only 158 calories per bag. Other flavours include Smokehouse BBQ, Sea Salt & Vinegar and Thai Sweet Chilli.

Very Lazy Chopped Garlic £1.50

Very Lazy Chopped Garlic review

The clue is in the name with this one. Peeling and chopping garlic can be time-consuming so this little jar is great to have on hand!

Gloriously Grown Vietnamese Jumbo Wrapped Cashews £3

Gloriously Grown Vietnamese Jumbo Wrapped Cashews review

I love flavoured nuts and cashew nuts are my favourite!

MadeGood Granola Bars £2.90

MadeGood Granola Bars review

These bars are allergy-friendly and therefore safe for school. These snacks are made from gluten-free oats and contain the nutrients of one full serving of vegetables. We tried Chocolate Banana, Mixed Berry and Chocolate Chip flavours.

Blue Dragon Thai Holy Basil Stir Fry Kit and Teriyaki Street Food Skewers £1.50 and £2.70 respectively

Blue Dragon Thai Holy Basil Stir Fry Kit and Teriyaki Street Food Skewers review

The aromatic kit contains 3 key elements - a base, a sauce and a topping. These kits are super handy to keep in the cupboard for when a Thai Curry craving hits.

We tried the skewers kit with crispy tofu and it went down a real treat.

Arden's Gruyere & Spinach Twists £1.75

Arden's Gruyere & Spinach Twists review

The Gruyere and Spinach flavour combination is a great one and the puff pastry was just perfect. They can be eaten straight from the box, as we did, or dunk into dips.

Indie Bay Snacks Chocolate Pretzel Bites Milk/Dark £1.25

Indie Bay Snacks Chocolate Pretzel Bites Milk/Dark review

These oven-baked spelt bites are handbag size and great when on-the-go. They are made with ancient grains, are a source of fibre with fewer than 150 calories per portion.

We also received the following Alcoholic products but we did not sample these:

Smith & Sinclair Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies £15 for 8
Pedrino Vermouth & Tonic Spritz £1.95
Lagunitas Daytime Session IPA £1.80

Disclaimer - Thank you Degustabox for sending us Degustabox in exchange for a review. I was sent this box for an unbiased review and not told or paid to write a positive review. All the opinions are my own.
Being a Deguatsabox brand ambassador I get to try all the products (including variation from alcohol/ non-alcohol boxes and products that are only included in some variations of the box), unlike regular subscribers who will receive either one or the other. I received vegetarian and non-vegetarian and alcoholic drinks in this box.
