May Degustabox **REVIEW**

We Recently had the pleasure of reviewing a Degustabox!

Degustabox is a monthly subscription food box which is delivered to your door monthly! Each box contains between 10 and 15 products that you may or may not have tried before. The box costs £12.99 per month and this included postage and the contents of the box is always worth more than the £12.99 paid! 

I was really excited to try our Degustabox! Im one of those people who always thinks about trying new products and recipes but when it comes to the weekly shop I end up grabbing the same thing and the same meals, So having a box delivered monthly that really encourages you to try new brands and products you may not have thought about before is a great way to get anyone trying new things!

 Our Degustabox arrived promptly on time (we were given a delivery slot of 1 hour via text on the day of delivery with the option to change this date if needed). 
I was not disappointed with what was inside! There was a great range of products from drinks, snacks and meal based foods.
The box also contained a few promotional cards from some of the brands and also a sheet explaining what each of the products were and the RRP of them which i thought was great as it really showed how much you had saved! 
I thought I would share with you below some of our favourite products out of the box (although we enjoyed them all!)

First out of the box were the Elizabeth Shaw dark chocolate flutes (grabbed by my eager 4 year old lol) 
 These rrp at £2.59 per pack and I hadnt seen them before but they were delicious! As they are dark chocolate they really curbed that chocolate craving without consuming to many. I've grabbed another pack of these to pop into my hospital bag! 

I was really excited to see the Dr Oetker cake release spray in the box! 
Im not an amazing baker but I do enjoy occasionally baking for the family and especially with my little boy and buttering and flouring cake tins is so messy this will certainly come in handy! I will be doing some baking with my little boy this week so I will let you know how we get on with it.

I really liked the fact the box contained 3 products that could be used together to create a tasty meal. These were the Garofalo pasta (rrp £1.89), Cirio passata (rrp £1.35) and Cirio puree (rrp £1.10). 
These are products I use for cooking usually but brands I had never heard of before so it was great to try new brands and compare the taste. They were delicious!! I used them to make a Chicken, Bacon and Tomato pasta bake dish (Recipe and pics will be in another post) which was easy to make and tasted yummy!

My favourite thing in the box had to be the Cawston Cloudy apple drink!! 
It tasted like a grown up fizzy drink and it was so refreshing! It contains 70% apple juice mixed with sparkling water and you could really taste the fresh apples. These rrp at £1 each so are a little more expensive than other cans of fizzy drink but really are worth it for a treat! They have other flavours to so I will be on the look out for these to give them a try.

Also included in this months Degustabox were these products..
Unfortunately I couldn't drink the cider with being pregnant but hubby said they were really nice and refreshing and I will definitely be purchasing some to try once I've had the baby! 
The Kettle chips also came with a £1 off voucher to use against another purchase of these crisps at any waitrose store. 

The total value of the Degustabox this month was £21.46 so as you can see much more than the £12.99 you pay for the box. 
If you want to try your very own Degustabox you can head over to www.degustabox.com to order yours now! There is no commitment to continue your subscription and you can cancel at any time.

I even have a discount code for you to use against your first box just enter 3MB25 this will give you £3 off your first box!

  1. oooh this is rather interesting! so these items are just selected randomly on your behalf? This is actually a really good idea because i find myself just picking up the same things as well, so this is a great way to add a bit of difference to a grocery shop :) And it's like christmas opening something new ;p I might give this a go some time, thank you for sharing Jess! :) x
