Degustabox is a monthly subscription surprise tasting box. Every month they select and send out an exciting range of new and limited edition food products from well-known brands. I’ve come across these surprise subscription boxes before in the beauty world, but the difference here is that the box contains lots of lovely things to eat and drink. This is the haul that we got in this month’s box and you can see it’s quite impressive. The boxes cost £12.99 per month and the pack is worth approximately twice that and delivery is included, which I think is excellent value.
I liked that there was a wide range of goodies from things to use in cooking from scratch to snacks and drinks. Obviously, I’m familiar with Nando’s the restaurant chain, but I hadn’t realised that they made snacks too with similar flavours to their restaurant food. We have been trying out a range of drinks too from soft drink cans like these from Scheckters which are natural energy drinks and these from Idrinq which contain a useful range of vitamins and nutrients. Barry’s Tea is a brand I’ve been meaning to try for a while as Irish friends rave about it. I’ve been impressed by the strength of the tea bags – so often I find that tea bags don’t contain enough tea or enough good quality tea and you end up waiting ages for a brew. These probably aren’t for you if you like a weaker cup though. Those that like something a little stronger will have their eye on the Kingfisher beer. We were sent items from the alcohol box and the alcohol free box for the purposes of this review. There was also a delicious soft drink: Wonjo Hibiscus. This had a lovely exotic flavour and was made from 100% natural ingredients.
I tried out some of the microwaveable rice from Veetee for my lunches last week. This was a really quick and tasty way to get a meal for one. You’d want to use it with something else if it was your main meal, but it’s perfect a side dish or a snack. It took just 2 minutes in the microwave and doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge – a nice one to take to work if you have access to a microwave. For when you are planning to do a little more in the way of preparation, there are some quality tomato products from Cirio. These are ideal for using if you are making a ragu or a bolognese. For curry fans that like a little help with the seasoning, there are a couple of Schwartz’s packet curries.
We’ve really enjoyed trying out a range of items from different quality food brands. We have tried out different brands for familiar items like tea and tried out some new products, which we might not have thought to buy. Even if you don’t want to try everything in your box, you are still getting excellent value for money. If you’d like to try out a box readers can get a £3.00 discount when registering. The discount code to use for your Degustabox is WCEKC.
