I hope you have all had a great week.
It’s time for this month’s Degustabox review and unboxing. If you are new here, Degustabox is a monthly subscription plan which contains a bunch of surprise food products. The items are selected from name brands, will contain fun flavors, and give you a new option to think about the next time you’re looking for a break in your eating routine.
POPCORNERS Spicy Queso $3.29 for 7oz Bag
“We made this tex-mex classic ONE BETTER with a chef-inspired medley of red and black peppercorns. The red ones are especially rare and bring intense heat to every bit.”
I absolutely love these! I have tried Popcorners before, the kettle corn ones to be exact and they were good, but I wasn’t crazy about them, these are delicious. I love the light crisp texture of the chips and the cheesy warmth from the spice.”
UNIQUE Sourdough Craft Beer Pretzel Rings $3.29
“A sourdough pretzel made with Unique’s high quality. We added real malted barley and a dash of hops as a tip-of-the-hat to all the brewmasters out there, inventing the original Craft Beer Pretzel.”
What can I say, these are just really good pretzels. I didn’t get very many of them because I decided to share them.
JUST ADD Classic Guacamole Quick Mix $1.19
“Just Add Classic Guacamole Quick Mix makes it easy to get the perfect guacamole, every time- in just minutes. Just mix with 2 avocados, and you’re ready to party”.
I have mixed feelings about this, I really like the idea, but the garlic flavor is really strong. I think in future I would use one packet for four avocados instead of two avocados.
EMMY’S ORGANICS Vanilla Bean Coconut Cookies $2.49
Simple, not basic. The Combination of smooth vanilla and freshly ground almonds are a perfect pair for your daily hot beverage.
These are so good! I both going to be looking out for them in the store and trying to make something like them at home.
RAINDROPS Candy Taco $4.99
This is sure to be a favorite at your next party or as a snack to share with loved ones. Made from Raindrops delicious tasting candies, this is a one-of-a-kind taco!
I have no idea! This is definitely the weirdest thing I have gotten in a Degustabox.
I did get a good laugh out of it, but the candy in the taco was very basic gummy candy, which isn’t my thing anyway.
MANITOU TRADING COMPANY Truffle, Parmesan & Black Garlic Seasoning $4.49
“Our Truffle, Parmesan & Black Garlic Seasoning combines umami-rich flavors of truffles, black garlic and Parmesan cheese in a convenient, easy-to-use powder. Sprinkle over popcorn. Toss with freshly fried or roasted potatoes. Use to crust meat or seafood before grilling. Add richness to risotto or pasta dishes”.
This sounds like a really interesting flavor, I really want to try this on popcorn, it sounds really delicious to me.
MANITOU TRADING COMPANY Piri Piri Sauce $2.99
“Piri Piri, Swahili for “pepper pepper” speaks to this Portuguese classic’s African influence. Our Piri Piri Sauce starter makes a zesty marinade for grilled or baked poultry.”
I’m super curious to use this, I have never heard of it before and it sounds really good. I guess I need to get cooking!
BEANSMASH! Bean Dip $1.29
“BeanSmash! Is a warm and tasty protein-packed bean dip or snack that is available in four great flavors. Each cup contains at least 10 grams of protein, is gluten-free, vegetarian and non-GMO. It is convenient and easy to prepare. Just add water”
Not a big bean fan at the best of time, but I will definitely be giving these a try at some point.
PBFIT Peanut Butter Powder $5.99 for 8oz
“PBfit is everything you love about peanut butter, made better. Whole-roasted peanut pressed to perfection, means PBfit contains up to 90% less fat than traditional peanut butter, and about 1/3 the calories.”
I find this idea really cool! I don’t eat peanut butter regularly but I tried this on its own as peanut butter and it’s surprisingly good! I’m very curious to see how it is in a smoothie or maybe use it in some baking.
Overall it was a good box this month, there are a few products that I may pass along to someone who will like them better than I would.

This box was sent to me for review, all thoughts are as always, my own.
