We are lucky enough to be reviewing Degustabox over the next three months. I absolutely love subscription boxes – nearly as much as I love food, so a food based subscription box is ideal for me! Degustabox arrives at your door every month filled with 10-15 surprise products – many of which are new to the market.
Our first Degustabox arrived well packaged and I couldn’t wait to see what was inside. The Degustabox costs just £12.99 including postage and as I like a bargain I can usually buy quite a lot of food for that much money – I was intrigued to see what Degustabox would offer and whether it would be good value.
Inside the Degustabox there was:
- 1 x 500g pack of Garofalo Penne Pasta – RRP £1.89
- 1 x Can of Cloudy Apple Cawston Press – RRP £1.00
- 1 Pack of Taylors of Harrogate Blackberry & Elderflower Tea – RRP £2.99
- 2 x Packs of Raw Energy Chewing Gum – RRP £1.98 (99p each)
- 1 x Cirio Passata – RRP £1.35
- 1 x Cirio Tomato Puree – RRP £1.10
- 2 x Hornsby’s Cider – RRP £2.50
- 1 x Kettle Sweet Potato Chips – RRP £2.49
- 1 x Lizi’s Granola – RRP £1.29
- 1 x Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Flutes – RRP £2.59
- 1 x Dr Oetker Cake Releasing Spray – RRP £2.28
Overall the contents of the Degustabox had a combined value of £21.46 so I think that the £12.99 price is great value especially as it includes postage.
We are familiar with a few of the brands in the Degustabox but most of the brands are new to us and it’s always nice to discover something new. The brands that we know of – Garofalo and Cirio for example – are things that we don’t usually buy, we always buy the cheaper version and so these are such a treat!
The mix of products is great – Some cooking ingredients, some drinks, snacks and treats. The Degustabox has something to suit everyone – There are things in this month’s box that would be great as part of a family meal, other things that Hubby likes, things that I would like and things that we can share with the children.
Also inside the box was more information about the products and brands included and a £1 discount voucher off our next purchase of Kettle Chips! On the back of the information card there were two recipes using brands in the box. These are lovely additions that I wasn’t expecting.
Our introduction to Degustabox has definitely been a positive one! The Degustabox subscription is definitely a luxury but at £12.99 a month it’s an affordable one – To me, Degustabox is a little treat straight to your door and I love the idea. Plus, there is no contract so you can cancel at any time.
To add to the great price, Degustabox are giving readers a £3 discount when you register with them using code 2EI7S.
