I am over the moon to receive my first Degustabox. I had heard such good reports about them, full of lovely goodies! I was intrigued to know how I could fit these into the Slimming World Plan, so here goes my journey of exploration! Firstly the box that arrives is strong and robust. Well packed and tightly sealed. On opening the outer the contents are hidden under a brown paper wrapping held together with a lovely sticker – ‘Open me, Eat me, Enjoy me’ Ooooh I couldn’t wait so here is what I found in my box…
I have twelve items in my box! 12 surprises! Here they are with my assessment of how they can fit into the Slimming World plan…
New York Delhi V.I.P. Nuts
Ooooh nuts I can hear some of you drool! Not just any old nuts …..New York Delhi Hot Toffee V.I.P. Nuts. Caramelised jumbo peanuts with just a hint of hot chilli. And… you can have them! Just 6.5 syns for 25gms. The bag is 60gms and 15.5 syns for the whole bag. These are gourmet nuts, not too hot for a lightweight like me and oven baked and natural. £1.45 a bag for the Toffee flavour and £1.25 for Hot Chilli
Sugar free Polo Mints
Can you believe you can have the whole tub for just 8 syns!! Polo mints are in institutions and been making our favourite mints since 1948. This sugar free version is accredited by the Oral Health Foundation as being kind to teeth.
Beautiful freeze dried fruit and vegetables in convenient snack size packs. Great for lunch boxes, midnight munchies or whenever you want a tasty snack . I have two flavours – Strawberry and Banana is 2 syns per bag and the vegetable selection – Pea and sweetcorn works out at 4 syns a bag. Suitable for vegetarians, vegan and gluten free. They contain nothing but 100% wholesome ingredients and are £1.20 for 2 pks.
Garofalo Wholewheat Penne Pasta
All Slimming Worlders know that this is Syn free!! 🙌🏼 Garafalo Wholewheat Penne Pasta is made with unprocessed whole organic durum wheat retaining its natural fibre, bean, germ and vitamins giving many health benefits and it cooks in just 11 minutes. Found on Ocado and Amazon and local stockists. £2.19
Fentimans Pink Grapefruit Tonic Water
Fentimans Pink Grapefruit Tonic Water is made with Ruby Red Grapefruit and quinine for a zesty Tonic Water with a refreshingly dry finish . I have calculated the whole bottle for 9 syns so you could have this as a tipple on its own with ice or just a fraction as a mixer for your favourite tipple!
Seabrook Lattice Sea Salt and Black Pepper Flavour
For a Seabrook crisp to make the cut it has to be cut just right. They are sliced both ways to hold even more flavour and give you a crunch like no other. They work out at 8 syns per 1/4 bag so you can still have your favourite crisp! £1.59-£1.99
