Degustabox - November

Another box, another fun bunch of items to review.

Degustabox, if you haven't read previous reviews, is a service that sells boxes of various food products. I have a free subscription, so I can write about it. So far, so good. I've liked most of the items in most of the boxes, and although I liked some boxes better than others, overall, I was happy with all of them.

In each box there have been a few things I gave away - not because they were inherently bad, but simply because there are a few things I don't care for. Like coconut. Just not my thing.

I needed two photos to get all the goodies in. So here we go.

This month's box included:

Brianna's Poppy Seed Dressing: I tried this on a green salad and didn't love it. I thought it was a tad too sweet. But then I tried it on cole slaw and I loved it. I think it would also be lovely on something like chicken salad. Of course, if you like sweeter dressings, then it probably would be fine for your green salad.

Sharwood's Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce: I haven't tried this yet. I read the ingredients and it has coconut, so I'll probably pass this along to someone else.

Bruce Cost Ginger Beer: Okay, I'll admit it. I kind of love ginger beer. It's sort of like ginger ale, but less sweet and more gingery. It's often used for making a Moscow Mule, but I like it plain. It's refreshing and adult-tasting. A wedge of lime is nice in it.

Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar from Modena: this is a somewhat thick vinegar condiment that is tart but also a little sweet. This is really good just drizzled over fresh tomatoes. When they're in season, it would be good over strawberries. This isn't in every box this month - customers will get either this or:

Torani Single Cup Coffee: I got the salted caramel flavor, and it was insanely good. I don't use a lot of these single cups, but I really enjoyed these. The caramel flavor was definitely there, but it wasn't sweet. Just sort of ... well ... caramel-like. It was just a nice, rounded and rich flavor.

And there was more:

Nibmor: these were two little chocolate bars that had fruit in them. One had bits of cherries and they other had blueberries. I don't usually like fruit and chocolate, but these were nice and I thought the bars were a good size. Enough to satisfy, but not too much.

Oloves Healthy Olive Snacks: Um, yum, olives. I put these on a salad. I'm an olive freak. If I worked outside the house, I'd be tucking these into lunches or keeping some in a desk drawer. It's a nice little nibble. If you love olives, give these a look.

Honees Cough Drops: Coincidentally, I got a little scratchy throat after these arrived and they were pretty soothing. And they tasted good, too. I might not save these for when I'm not feeling well. They're pretty tasty and a nice little sweet.

Chef's Cut Real Jerky: These come in a bunch of different flavors, and I got the original recipe. If you're a jerky fan, you'll love these. I don't eat a lot of jerky, but I was happy to snack on this. It was nice on the days when dinner was running late and I was getting a little peckish. Which happens more often than I'd like to admit.

Beanitos: These are tortilla-like chips made from beans. I snacked on a bag of them as-is, and I kind of missed the corn flavor from tortilla. On the other hand, the bean flavor wasn't totally weird, and worked really well when I used them to make some nachos.

I received these products at no cost so I could do a review.
