Jones Pumpkin Pie Soda and Halloween Decor
I got to try a Jones Pumpkin Pie Soda from my Degustabox!
I know what is slowly creeping into your mind. Halloween is less than a week away---so, we will soon be delving right into holiday territory and you will really need to get those gifts together. The last few months I have been receiving a surprise in the mail. Well, actually I have been receiving a box full of surprises! Enter Degustabox as a gift idea for the holidays!

Inside October's Degustabox:

October's Degustabox marked my third experience with this new subscription box service. Each box has been full of a wide range of surprises including items to help with meals, treats, snacks and even healthy food options. You can see above HOW MUCH I received this month. Plus, everything is full sized -- so you have plenty to experience. I have found that each box has a mix of familiar and new brands. Checking out our monthly Degustabox is a fun new experiment. So, I am thinking receiving one in a month like January when there isn't much to do will be fun!

As you can see by the pictures, I had a tough time photographing ALL of the items I received. So, here is a run down:
  • Pumpkin Jones Soda
  • Numi Tea
  • Palo Popcorn (2)
  • Hometown Bagel Chips (2)
  • Lovely Candy
  • La Tortilla Factory tortillas
  • Wasa Thins
  • Energems chocolate energy supplements
  • Crown Nut Sriracha Almonds
  • Barilla Marinara Sauce
  • Barilla ProteinPLUS Pasta
Sampling my treats:

I was totally enthusiastic about both Wasa and Jones being in my box! Both brands have been on my list for awhile but I haven't had time to enjoy them until now! One of my snacks this month while working on writing --- goat cheese on Wasa Thins. Yum!

Goat cheese and Wasa Thin snacks -- yum!

Of course, another favorite treat while working -- Numi Tea! The Numi Tea enclosed was a sampler of 8 different teas. What a great way to have a little calm while sampling various teas!

An awesome new discovery: Lovely Candy! Lovely Candy is a family run company crafting candy made from healthier ingredients while being treats. They are all natural, gluten free, non-GMO and lack high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. We tried the fruit chews which actually are made with real fruit. Nice little treats that my daughter happily gobbled up!

Lovely candies are made from quality natural ingredients!

Speaking of treats, I did have to crack open the Jones Pumpkin Pie Soda. I have to say, this is one of those items that was better than I was expecting! I loved the pumpkin spice wrapped in a cream soda.

As many of you know, we explored Iceland earlier this month. Of course, Degustabox came with us! We enjoyed White Cheddar Cheese Palo Popcorn while admiring waterfalls. Loved the popcorn--very cheesy!

On a hiking trip last weekend, I brought along Hometown Bagel chips. Just what we needed after a 3 mile hike!

Hometown Bagel Chips from our Degustabox were the perfect snack after a hike!

While writing this, I did dive into another snack -- Crown Nut Sriracha Almonds. Crunch with a kick. Sriracha is a pretty popular flavor, so you can see that Degustabox is up with what is new and interesting to us foodies out there!

As you can see, Degustaboxes are pretty fun! While we adults love getting surprises in the mail, kids really get a kick out of the experience. We all have some people on our holiday list that are not too easy to buy for. Degustabox offers a pretty interesting gift idea! You can order just one month or sign up for 3 or 6.

Want to try it out? 

Degustaboxes cost $19.99 per month and there is no shipping. Woo hoo! My readers have a special coupon code to receive their first box for $9.99 with code 69ODU. Boxes are valued at $30 so this is an awesome deal if you want to try it out! These types of things are especially fun for the kids, so may be a nice little gift!

**Disclosure: I did receive a Degustabox so that I could experience it and review it for you. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.
