I love my Degustabox deliveries. The box has never failed to surprise me and I always look forward to the Degustabox delivery with as much excitement as a kid in a candy store. Apart from the actual box and its contents I also like the delivery service. I always receive a text message on the day of the delivery giving me a 1 hour slot in which my box would be delivered along with the option to rearrange the delivery if needed. The September box was no different - excellent delivery service and an equally fantastic box which was well packed and arrived in perfect condition. So, what was in my September Degustabox? Here we go! Since I received the box for a review feature, I was kindly sent the contents of both the alcohol and alcohol-free boxes.

- Jordans Simply Granola (RRP £2.69)
A 750g pack of crunchy baked oats with a hint of honey, this one was perfect on its own with milk; although you can mix and match with fruit and yoghurt to create your own variation. Mr.H preferred it with plain milk  - simple and satiating.

- Bahlsen PICK UP! (RRP £1.69 for 5 pack)
We received two flavours: Milk Chocolate and the brand new Black'N'White flavour. These come in a pack of five individually wrapped biscuits and feature a thick slab of chocolate between 2 crisp biscuits. Because they are packed individually, it is perfect for on-th-go and also retain their freshness.

- Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Mint Thins (RRP £2.50)
Perfect for sharing and absolutely delicious, let me tell you that these won't last long once opened :) We finished these mint thins in record time upon opening the pack.

- Burts Lentil Waves (RRP £0.69 per bag)
One of our favourites from the Spetember box, these Lentil Waves were fantastic. All the 3 flavours were tasty and crunchy. Defintely a repurchase depending on theor availability in my local Tesco.

- Carnation Cook with it! (£1.65 per unit)
These are great to have in the cupboard for those times when you are short of time. I haven't used these yet but hope to make use of them very soon.

- Righteous (£0.73 per unit)
Made with 100% natural ingredients these dressings were packed with flavour. Not something we would have picked up ourselves while shopping, but we enjoyed the blend of flavours.

- La Vieja Fábrica Marmalade (RRP £1.59)
I love jams and marmalades, so I was happy to see this in the box.

And now moving on to what I love most about the Degustabox - the drinks :-) There was one alcohol option in the form of Crabbie's Alcoholic Fruits(Zesty Lemon flavour £1.50) and a non-alcoholic option in John Crabbie's traditional cloudy lemonade (£1.20). Both went into the refrigerator as soon as I opened the box and needless to say Mr.H and myself enjoyed these chilled drinks.

We also received two bottles of Little Miracles which are a beautoful blend of fruti juice and organic tea. Free from artificial colours, flavours and sweetners these low calorie drinks are perfect as a pick-me-up. The flacvour we received were: "Green tea, ginseng, pomegranate, açai and agave" and "Lemongrass tea, orange juice, ginger, ginseng and agave". Both the drinks were refreshing and had a lovely flavour. This is another product from the September box that I see becoming a regular at our home.
