Degustabox Unboxing: August

The following post is a sponsored collaboration with DegustaBox. All opinions are our own.



Another month, another Degustabox arrived at our doorstep. We were so excited to see what our curated box would bring for us this time. Snacks, condiments and baking items! Every unboxing feels a lot like Christmas.

DegustaBox sends 10 to 15 surprise products every month, many of which are completely new in the market and for a lot less than what you would pay at the store. Just check out our latest unboxing video and read below our comments on each of the products we received. Lots of great finds.



Cow Tales: Our first treat was a caramel chew that is soft and doesn’t stick to your teeth. Interestingly, the first ingredient on the label is actually wheat flour not sugar, which probably gives it its very soft texture and unique nutty flavor. It’s also low in fat and sodium, which is also a plus.

Goya María Cookies: We’ve enjoyed these cookies since we were little kids. They are always a pleasant surprise and go well with savory or sweet dips. We specially love to eat them with guava jelly and cheese!

Loacker Rose of the Dolomites Chocolate
: Who doesn’t like chocolate? And this brand is great. It’s super creamy, high quality and shaped like the Alpine Rose of the Dolomites. Very cool.




Popchips Ridges: Nabol is a big fan of healthy snacks and this option is great. The “ridges” add to the texture of the traditional potato chip, but the chips are baked, never fried. There are no added preservatives or artificial flavors, and they are gluten free.

Vermont Jerky: This one is probably one of our favorite treats. Not only does this jerky come in beautifully crafted flavor combinations, but Vermont uses humanely raised meats without antibiotics or hormones and local ingredients when creating their products. There are no preservatives or sodium nitrate.

White Lily White Grape Seed Flour: We have never heard of white grape seed flour! But basically what White Lily does is turn the seeds of the Chardonnay grape into a fine powder and combine it with wheat flour. It created a very complex, rich flavor. We haven’t messed too much with it, but use it in our homemade pancake mix and it wasn’t bad at all. It adds nuttiness to the mix. Did we mention it's Non-GMO? Thumbs up!


Oregon Chai: This is a product we were familiar with, but we’ve never seen it portable. You can conveniently slip packets of this magical black tea blend in your purse and take it wherever you go. It’s great.

Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo: This is another great brand that doesn’t use artificial ingredients and supports everything Non-GMO. The flavor combinations are also great and this mayo is no exception. We like to use it instead of ketchup on a lot of things.



Honey Bunches of Oats with strawberries
: This item wasn’t new for us, but overall it’s a great cereal. The dried strawberries plump up beautifully when you add milk.

ALO Allure: Aloe vera drinks are believed to help with digestion and even lower blood sugar. Among the brands out there, this one seems to be one of the favorites online. People use it to reduce inflammation, for the antioxidants or just because it’s a refreshing post-workout beverage. We also like that it is Non-GMO and gluten free. The mango mangosteen flavor that we received is not bad at all either.
