Degustabox is a monthly surprise food and drink subscription box, usually costing £12.99 per month. Each month there is something different in the box. You can receive your first box for only £5.99 which I will talk about shortly. This is my review for February's Degustabox.
What is Degustabox
Degustabox is a monthly surprise subscription box of food and drink items for £12.99 a month, the products will usually be worth more than this amount. The products will be delivered to your door during the last week of the month or sometimes the start of the next month. You will always receive an email and even text of which day and when during the day they will be delivering to you, which is really convenient.
Products are always well wrapped within the box with a layer of large bubble-wrap and any glass items, like bottles, will also be wrapped again.
It is a really useful way in trying out new products and recipes. Anything that we don't use ourselves we will give to family (after all got a chocolate loving sister) or donate to a food bank.
What's in February's Box
Koko Diary Free – £1.50: A great alternative milk that we have tried before thanks to degustabox. It is very tasty and I think I prefer it over normal milk at times!
Blossom Hill Fruit Bloom – £4.99: Oh I remember the days I used to put this on shelves, now I am writing about it. My wife and I are not big drinkers but we opened our bottle and both really enjoyed it! It is more fruity with a taste of alcohol on the edge which made it more enjoyable for us.
Coldpress – £2.79: This is a perfect refreshment for during the long auctions that Emma and I attend now for our reselling (check out my post An introduction to reselling for more information about reselling). We have tried it before thanks to degustabox, it is very fruity and very enjoyable, especially since chilled.
Kabuto Noodles – £1.99: I enjoy these Kabuto noodles, they make a great quick warm snack or light lunch. Emma doesn't enjoy them at all so more for me since we also got some via the Shopmium app (use KHEMYGGZ for a FREE Lindt chocolate bar!).
Heinz – 2x £0.65: Well we have some beans now for breakfast or a lunch, best part is that these are no added sugar beanz (it's heinz so its a z instead of an s). I think this will be perfect for a slightly healthier breakfast soon of beans and toast.
Willy Chase's FITCORN – £2.19: Emma and myself do not like Fitcorn, having tried it before either via an app or degustabox. As such we have donated ours to a food bank so that someone else might enjoy it.
Diablo – £0.95: For some reason it popped into my head that the bad guy (Diablo) from the Diablo games (second game is my favourite) making his own chocolate bars. This is not the case, and Emma can confirm the fact that the Diablo chocolate wafer is very good.
Maui and Sons – £1: We are not a fan of dark chocolate but these peaked our interest, so we are keeping these to one side for a rainy day.
New York Delhi's Americanos – £1: I wish that we had given these to Emma's friend when she was our first house guest in our new home. Her friend is a huge lover of coffee and so would have loved these. Emma and myself both dislike coffee as such these shall not be eaten but be donated to a food bank, hopefully a coffee lover will receive them.
Peppersmith – £1.50: Now these sound great but neither Emma or I are fans of Mints and as such this was donated to the food bank.
Bebeto Cheese Cake & Candy Crush – £1.69 & £1.69: For anyone with a sweet tooth I would highly recommend the Bebeto cheese cake sweets, they are seriously tasty. We tried the Bebeto candy crush when we last visited Florida in December 2016, I enjoyed them but Emma (and even I) found them too sweet and sugary, so these are not for everyone.
Supermarket cost: 22.59
Degustabox cost: £12.99
Free Gift Sample
Willy's Apple Cider Vinegar: Emma and I both have used apple cider vinegar for various things in the past (not just for food) so it was exciting to get some in Degustabox to try out. This was only a sample sized bottle, the full sized 500ml bottle would normally be £6.95.
My opinion of February's Degustabox
A more relax with treats box this month, maybe because of Valentine's Day? Though you don't always need sweets and wine for a date, just check out my post for 9 thrifty romantic gifts for more. Those that we have kept we know are things we will enjoy or enjoy trying, and very little went to a food bank, but we hope that someone is able to enjoy them.
