Where do you keep your snacks at school? Mine are in my desk drawer. As soon as the students go to special, they make an appearance and help to hold me over until lunch. Pretzels, crackers, candy – they’ve all been in my snack drawer. However, I get tired of eating the same thing all the time. That’s why I decided to try Degusta Box, and I’ve discovered that it provides the perfect snacks for teachers.
Degusta Box: The Perfect Snacks for Teachers

I love the element of surprise! That’s why I enjoy getting clothes from Stitch Fix and Trunk Club so much. Having someone else select outfits for me has worked really well, so I decided to let someone else choose my snacks, too. That’s why I ordered Degusta Box.
My snack drawer was running low, so I was really excited when my Degusta Box arrived. When I opened it, I saw there was a wide array of different goodies inside.
Here’s what I received:
- Black and White Popcorn – This went to school and was added to my snack drawer. It was the first item I opened, and it’s absolutely delicious! I had a hard time putting it away when it was time to pick my kids up from special.
- PopCorners – These are little triangular chips made of popcorn. They are kettle corn flavored. I pulled one of these from my snack drawer yesterday. They were good, but I think I would have liked them even better if they were savory. They were a little too sweet for me.
- Tuxedo Mix – I love trail mixes, so this blend of yogurt covered raisins, peanuts, and chocolate was the perfect little snack.
- Pearson’s Mint Patties and Coconut Patties – Chocolate is definitely a teaching necessity. These little bites of chocolatey goodness are delicious. They are small enough to pop in my mouth when I need a sugar fix, and my students don’t even know I’m eating.
- Grand Belgian Pralines – These specialty chocolates are being saved for especially hard days. I had one the other afternoon at the end of the day because my students just couldn’t stop talking all afternoon. I decided that my patience earned me a special chocolate.
- Mini Panettone – My daughter claimed this one as soon as I opened the box. She thought the little cake was very cute and played with it with her dolls.
- BUSH’S Bean Dip – I decided taking bean dip to school might not be the best idea, so this one stayed at home. I am going to use it to make a 7-layer dip for tortilla chips. Yum!
- Chickapea Mac and Cheese – My kids love mac and cheese, and this box looks just like Kraft Mac and Cheese. I don’t make that very often, because it’s not healthy at all. My daughter was so excited when she saw the Chickapea Mac and Cheese. I just hope the lentil pasta fools my kids into thinking it’s regular mac and cheese. If it does, I’ll definitely be investing in more of this.
- Coconut Oil – There was also a free gift of three small packets of coconut oil in my Degusta Box. I’ve heard that cooking with coconut oil is healthier than other types of oil, so I’m excited to try it. I’ve also read that coconut oil is good for your hair, so one of the packets may be used to moisturize my hair this winter.
- A List of the Items in my Degusta Box – I also received a pretty page that showed everything that was in my Degusta Box. This is really helpful because it tells the brands and prices if I want to buy any of the items again. That black and white popcorn is on my grocery list. I need more of it.
A Restocked Snack Drawer
Degusta Box definitely served its purpose. My snack drawer is restocked, and I look forward to my daily snack session. The great thing is that Degusta Box comes every month, so I will never run out of snacks. Plus, there will always be a variety. I won’t get sick of the same old pretzels and crackers again.
