October Degustabox Review and Coupon

If you haven't guessed it by now, Degustabox has become one of my favorite food boxes! Each month is full of full-sized items and I love how affordable it is. October's box was excellent and I found a lot of new favorites!

*Disclaimer: This box was sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review. Post contains affiliate links.

I like to think of Degustabox as my monthly grocery booster. They always send foods that I can work into my weekly meals, plus snacks for when I just feel like having a treat. Each box will have at least 10 full-sized items and costs $19.99 per month with free shipping. You can earn rewards points by reviewing the items and referring friends, and if you reach 100 points you can exchange them for a free box!

Degustabox is big. It's always packaged securely with plenty of bubble wrap to keep everything from breaking. I've never gotten a box that had a broken or leaking item.

You'll also find an informational sheet detailing all of the products, plus fun stuff like recipes and games on the other side. This month's sheet had recipes from Barilla on it.

Since I just mentioned Barilla, I'll start there:

  • Barilla Marinara Sauce ($2.39) - I think most people are familiar with Barilla's sauces, as they're readily available in most grocery stores. I really love their marinara and will definitely use this for an upcoming dinner.
  • Jones Soda in Pumpkin Pie ($1.79) - I love Jones Soda and their unique flavors, but I'm hesitant to try this. I know pumpkin/pumpkin spice is everywhere now, but I'm not so sure I want my soda to taste like it. That being said, I'll still give it a try. Maybe it'll just taste like a cream soda?
  • Numi Tea Sampler ($3.99) - Numi is one of my favorite tea brands. Their teas are high quality and delicious. The sampler contains one of each of the following: Aged Earl Grey, Rooibos Chai, Breakfast Blend, Gunpowder Green, Jasmine Green, Orange Spice, Moroccan Mint, and Chamomile Lemon. The Moroccan Mint is one of my all-time favorites.
  • Energems ($5.99) - These are little bite-sized energy supplements made from dark chocolate and caffeine. They also have vitamins B and D. The instructions say to take three of them for 133 mgs of caffeine, but so far I've just taken one at a time along with my morning coffee.
  • La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Flour Tortillas ($2.99) - These came at the perfect time because I was going to buy some for flautas. They're the first non-GMO low carb tortilla, with four grams of net carbs and three grams of protein.
  • Barilla ProteinPLUS Pasta ($2.39) - Barilla's pastas are equally good as their sauces, and this one has 17 grams of protein from all-natural, vegetarian ingredients.
  • Hometown Bagel Bagel Chips ($1.99 each) - These are exactly what they sound like: chips made out of bagels. The flavors are Garlic (red bag) and Everything (green). I used them like crackers and dipped them into a chutney. The flavor is light and they had a great crunch!
  • Palo Popcorn ($.99 each) - These were definitely my favorite item this month! The flavors were White Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Cheddar. They're non-GMO and made with pure coconut oil, and I think that's what set them over the edge for me. The flavor was so rich and the popcorn felt soft, I don't know how else to describe it, but it was like buttery smooth instead of dry and hard like some popcorn is. I definitely want to buy more of this!
  • Wasa Thins ($2.99) - These sesame and sea salt crackers are nice and light and have seven grams of whole grains and 80 calories per serving.
  • Lovely Candy Superfruit Chews ($2.49) - These candies are so good! They're non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher, and made without high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients. Each chew has pieces of real fruit in it, which you can clearly see when you open them. The flavors are cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry.
  • Crown Nut Sriracha Almonds ($1.99) - I'm not the hugest fan of almonds but I love sriracha, so I'm curious to try these.
Bottom Line: The October Degustabox had a total retail value of $29.99. I loved trying the Lovely Candy and Palo Popcorn, and I also appreciate the practical items like the Barilla sauce and pasta.
