Kettle Chips - Salsa and Mesquite £2.19
Kettle Chips have brought back two of its most loved flavours as limited edition for Christmas! I've already eaten half of my bag of Salsa and Mequite to myself so I can tell you they are very nice! A little on the spicy barbecue side in taste but certainty morish. I would have loved to have received the other pack also which was Stilton and Port as I think that would have been a strange flavour to try!

Cool Dawn Recovery £2.98 for 2
These drinks claim to help prevent a hangover when you've had a night out on the town. I tried one of these after I'd been out for a drink and I really didn't like the taste as it contains liquorice which I am not a fan of. I like the idea that these drinks will make you feel much better in the morning and that they are made with herbal ingredients but they are not for me!

Lindt - Lindor My Melting Moment £3.25 for 5
These are basically a version of the Lindt balls you get around Christmas but in a more accessible form. What I mean by this is that if you want some Lindt chocolate you can have one of these, rather than buying a full box of the balls! These are a firm favourite and I was sure to share these around at work rather than being greedy and eating all five to myself.

Kent's Kitchen - Fajita Flavour Shot £1.85
These flavour shots are a quick way of jazzing  up diced meat or prawns. Coming in different types including BBQ, Thai Green and Hot & Spicy these gel shots seem like a brilliant way to make some tasty food. I haven't had chance to try these yet but I think they are a really good idea and I definitely will be using them. As I have the fajita spice one I can't wait to have a Mexican night!

Branston  - Tomato Chutney £1.50
Branston have brought out two new chutneys just in time for Christmas. With a caramelised onion version and a Mediterranean tomato one, these are sure to get you running for something to smother them on. Again haven't had a chance to try this but I am sure it will get eaten over the Christmas period. Tomatoes are my favourite and I can't wait to try this with some cheese and crackers!

Pip Organic - Apple Juice £3.00 for 2
These were both consumed pretty swiftly as I had one and my boyfriend had the other. We both felt they were very refreshing and had a lovely real apple taste. I'd recommend these but I think they are a little pricey for how small the bottles are!

Montano - Apple Cider £2.79
This cider is made only from the apples grown in the foothills of the Trentino region of Northern Italy. It sounds very fancy but as I am not a lover of apple cider I have passed it along to a friend.

Holy Cow Indian Curries £3.38 for 2
Oh how I love a good curry! Holy Cow Indian Curries are made with natural ingredients, no artificial flavours or preservatives, suitable for vegetarians and those who are gluten intolerant! We received a Rogan Josh version and a Korma one. We tried the Rogan Josh curry and it was super easy to use and very tasty! I can't wait to cook up the Korma version as I am sure that will be just as nice!

Drink Me Chai sample
Lots of people have been talking about Chai latte and tea so I'm glad I've been sent this so I can try! I'm very excited to have it as the winter months get into full swing!

Following this I definitely think I'm going to commit to receiving Degustaboxes every month. I love the surprise of not knowing what you are getting until it comes. There is always something new that you might not have bought in your normal shopping but now have the chance to try.

If you'd like to join me in signing up, the stars at Degustabox have provided all my lovely readers with a discount code to receive £3.00 off your subscription box! Enter VQLS9 when registering for your box to get your money off.
