This box is really decorated inside and out. While the outside has little food items on it, the inside is full of bright green words. Plastic wrap and brown butcher paper keep all the contents safe.

Just in time for Oscar season, February’s Degustabox has a fun cinema snack theme. The information sheet shares details of all the treats inside the box.

The Product of the Month is Primrose’s Kitchen Raw Beetroot and Ginger Muesli (£4.99). The vegan and gluten free muesli is made with fresh beetroot, ginger, raw nuts and seeds, oats and virgin coconut oil, all air-dried at lower termperatures. This is high quality stuff – the earthy beetroot and zingy ginger flavours really shine through. The packaging is also really cute! I like this, but as it’s pretty strong tasting I prefer it mixed in with some bran flakes or sprinkled over yogurt and fruit.

True Nopal Cactus Water (£3.49) is a 100% natural blend of prickly pear cactus puree and filtered water with no added sugar. The flavour has berry undertones, making it a light and refreshing alternative to fruit juice or flavoured water drinks. I enjoyed this!

Dr Karg’s Organic Emmental Cheese & Pumpkin Seed Crispbread (£2.00) is made with whole grain flour and no additives. This lives up to its name – it’s a fairly thick and super crispy slice with a light flavour of emmental and lots of crunchy seeds including sunflower seeds, linseeds, and sesame seeds. This is a tasty and substantial crispbread.

The box includes two packs of The Protein Ball Co. Cherry + Almond (2 x £1.99). Each pack holds six little balls made with dates, almonds, cashews, egg white protein, sultanas, cherries, and a few other natural ingredients.

These were much tastier than I’d expected, having tried similar products in the past. They have a prominent cherry and almond flavour that’s delicious, and they have a nice texture with the perfect amount of chewiness.

Emily Crisps (£0.99) are a range of premium fuit and vegetable crisps. I received the Crunchy Red Apple flavour in my box, which is made with just apples and sustainable palm oil.

The pack looked like it had fallen on hard times, as most of the slices of apple were crushed, however this tasted great. The crisps are light and crunchy and very sweet. At 62 kcal per pack, these make a really nutritious sweet snack.

Indie Bay Snacks Pretzel Bites (£2.49) are little baked pretzel snacks made with interesting ingredients like spelt and quinoa.  I received the Sunflower Superseeds flavour bites, which are made with baked spelt, wheat and sunflower seed topped with sesame and poppy seed.

I was looking forward to trying these and they were good, really crunchy and the perfect size for snacking. There is a slight bitterness to the taste that I wasn’t crazy about, but they are still totally addictive.

I was excited to see Tootsie Roll Midgees (£2.50) in this month’s box. Candy doesn’t get more American than a Tootsie Roll, and the tiny ‘midgees’ shapes are the most classic version of the nostalgic treat.

These are an ever-so-slightly chocolate flavoured chewy sweet. I grew up with these and, while they’re not exceptional, I really enjoyed having these again after a long hiatus. There’s nothing quite like a Tootsie Roll!

The box contains two bags of Haribo Fruitilicious (2 x £1.29), a new range of sweets with 30% less sugar than regular fruit gum sweets.

Coming in a variety of fun fruit shapes, these are a yummy alternative to the full sugar version.

KitKat Chunky New York Cheesecake (£0.65) is a chunky KitKat with an extra cheesecake flavoured layer on top of the wafers, all coated in milk chocolate.

The ‘cheesecake’ layer is firmer than I expected, sort of like white chocolate with an extra bit of tang, but it works.  This is very, very sweet for my personal tastes, but a nice treat.

I enjoyed each and every item in February’s Degustabox. It’s hard to pick favourites, but I most enjoyed the Primrose’s Kitchen muesli, Indie Bay Snacks Pretzel Bites, and The Protein Ball Co. balls!
