Here are all the products in January’s box.

The info sheet details all the Degusta Box products.  January’s box has a Breakfast & On The Go theme – it is filled with convenient foods for morning and anytime snacking.

Chescots SuperGut Porridge Pots (£1.99) are an on-the-go breakfast that’s dairy free, gluten free and vegan.  Made with chicory inulin, each pot provides 51% of the recommended daily fibre intake, which is over 3 times the fibre of the average porridge pot.  I received two pots, in Raspberry & Chia and Blackcurrant, Coconut & Chia flavours.  These can be prepared hot with water in just 3 minutes, or cold with milk overnight.  I frequently have overnight oats for breakfast and these didn’t disappoint.  They are loaded with fruit but not too sweet, and have a pleasantly chewy texture.  I really enjoyed these and would recommend as a quick and easy, nutritious breakfast.

Kallo Organic Honey, Rice & Corn Cakes (£1.89) are a new addition to Kallo’s product range.  I’m a big fan of their regular rice and corn cakes, and these are great too.  They are sweet, crunchy and delicious – a nice little treat when you fancy something more indulgent than a plain rice cake.

PrepCo. are an on the go lunch pots featuring global flavours and 1 of your 5 veg a day (£2).  They are prepared just by adding hot water.  Each box includes one pot, however I received two: Mediterranean Couscous and Thai Green Curry Rice & Quinoa flavours.  I found the rice pot to be too wet and mushy, and because I am not a fan of green curry flavour in general, I really didn’t care for that one.  The couscous pot, however, had a really nice flavour and texture, probably because couscous is best prepared just by adding hot water.

Eat Natural Simply vegan peanuts, coconut and chocolate (£1) is a tasty gluten free bar packed with nuts, seeds, coconut, dried apricots and chickpeas.  I really enjoyed this, it was perfectly chewy with a bit of crunch, with a yummy nut and chocolate flavour.

The product of the month is Nescafe Gold Almond Latte (£2.98).  Each box contains 6 sachets making a smooth, creamy vegan latte with the addition of hot water.  This makes a decent almond latte.  I prefer the Nescafe Azera range to the Gold range, as I think the quality of the coffee is better, but this is a good dairy free alternative to traditional instant lattes if that is what you are looking for.

KitKat Chunky More & Yorkie More (£1.29 per bar) are a twist on classic candy bars featuring 30% less sugar than similar chocolate products, plus real fruit and protein.

The Kit Kat surprised me, as it included a thick layer of juicy raspberry filling. I wasn’t expecting to like this, but it was actually really nice.

I also enjoyed the Yorkie.  I’ve never tried a regular Yorkie bar so can’t make a direct comparison, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the flavour combination of milk chocolate with oats, apples and cinnamon.  Both bars make a nice change from your run of the mill chocolate bar.

Wholesums Fresh Veg Popped Chips (£1.75) are made with whole carrots, peas and potatoes.  The salt and vinegar flavour is just sharp enough, and the chips are light and crisp.

CRAFTED Blueberry & Blackberry fruit juice drink is an all natural blend of fruit and water with no added sugar, sweeteners or preservatives.  I really enjoy all the CRAFTED drinks, and this one is no exception.  This had a fresh, fruity flavour with the perfect level of natural sweetness.

Sun-Pat Peanut Butter 200g (£1.79) is made with 96% peanuts.  Each box contains one jar of peanut butter but I received jars of both smooth and crunchy.  Sun-Pat is the closest thing I’ve found in the UK to the American peanut butter I grew up with.  These days I prefer natural peanut butter made with just peanuts, but if you prefer a smoother, creamier peanut butter then this is a good choice.

Whitworths Shots berry & white chocolate are little sachets of cranberries, raisins and Belgian white chocolate with only 98 calories each.  With plump fruit and smooth white chocolate pieces, this makes a perfect little sweet snack.

Bounce Energy Ball (£1.79) is a peanut ball featuring 13g of protein.  This was quite chewy with little chunks of crunchy peanuts.  It tasted fine but I think the price point is high for the size of the ball.

Zest Vegan Basil Pesto (£2.20) is made simply with basil leaf, cashew nuts and white wine vinegar, and free from cheese and other animal products.  This has a lovely, zippy and fresh taste.  I have tried a few other brands of vegetarian or vegan basil pesto and this is by far the most flavourful.

January’s Degusta Box was packed with good finds.  I enjoyed nearly all of the products but the Chescots SuperGut Porridge Pots, Kallo Organic Honey, Rice & Corn Cakes, CRAFTED drink and Zest Vegan Basil Pesto were the standouts.
