Disclosure: I received this product free for purposes of reviewing, but all opinions are 100% my own.
The holiday meant just for eating is now here–I hope you’ve got your stretchy pants on. (You know I do!)
Today I thought I’d share my DeGustaBox for the month of November, since it’s dedicated to today’s favorite activity (and a favorite of yours and mine… at least I assume so, or why else would you be here?)–eating!
This month’s box came with all kinds of goodies that are perfect for this time of year, from coffee to ginger beer to yummy chips and snacks. I’ve turned my ginger beer into a seasonal version of one of my favorite cocktails to share with you today: the Cranberry Apple Moscow Mule!
We’ll get to that in a minute, but first my favorites from this month’s box.
- Oloves Healthy Olive Snack
I’ve been treated to these olives before (during my Pop Up Picnic experience here in LA), and I fell in love with them then–and nothing has changed! These are the most delicious little snack, and I love the convenient packaging. These olives come in a bunch of different flavors, including Basil & Garlic, and they’re all-natural, gluten free, non-GMO, vegan, kosher, low carb, AND low sodium. Oh. And SOOOO good!
Fruit and dark chocolate with no extra fillers? Count me in! I love smooth dark chocolate, and this bar is no exception. It’s the perfect size to slip inside my purse for a sweet snack on-the-go, and even better–it’s Non-GMO Project Verified! Love it.
- Chef’s Cut Real Jerky
This jerky has been a go-to treat of mine for several months now since I discovered it at our local grocery store. I love all the amazing different flavors–no boring jerky flavors here. I love being able to have a high protein (12g!) AND delicious-tasting snack on-the-go. It’s also nitrite free (so awesome!) and gluten free! Amazing snackiness.
Other treats included in this month’s box included Brianna’s Poppy Seed Salad Dressing, Honees Cough Drops, Ponti Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, Beanitos chips, and Sharwoods Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce.
Last but not least, this month’s box included Bruce Cost Spicy Ginger Beer, which I transformed into a delicious holiday drink, perfect for entertaining.
The Moscow Mule is one of my favorite cocktails, and with a little seasonal twist of cranberry juice and apple cider, it’s perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas entertaining.
