I’m no stranger to monthly subscription boxes, albeit I’m more swayed by ones with pretty packaging, filled to the brim with glorious stuffs for my skin, face & hair…
So when I saw a sponsored post on Instagram about Degustabox (after an initial giggle to myself about it being such an odd name for a food company), I was intrigued. I had a quick google & saw that while there are a few known brands in the previous boxes, a lot of them were brand new, not yet in supermarkets. The products I saw varied from non alcoholic beer to multipacks of crisps and pasta sauces. I figured this would be a fun idea & I signed up!
3 days later DPD delivered my first box & it did not disappoint!
If you like the look of this box & want to order for yourself with no commitment, visit www.degustabox.com and enter code DANNIIU-A03B to get yours for just £5! *
*Subsequent boxes are £12.99 inc delivery each month
GREEN & BLACK’S VELVET EDITION DARK CHOCOLATE (RRP £1.99)
NESTLE CHEERIOS OAT CRUNCH (RRP £2.49)
MISO TASTY RAMEN NOODLE KIT (RRP £2.99)
WILD PLANET ALBACORE WILD TUNA STEAKS (RRP £3.49)
KNORR CONCENTRATED BEEF STOCK (RRP £2.20)
I usually use Knorr stock cubes (also gluten free) but I was happy to receive this. I also received a spag bol recipe card with this box using this ingredient so I guess we’ll have spag bol this week too!
MENTOS MIXED MINT SHARING POUCH (RRP £1.19)
LATIN AMERICAN KITCHEN BY SANTA MARIA (RRP £1.85 each)
VIRTUE ENERGY SPARKLING WATER (RRP £1.35 each)
DREAM RICE QUINOA (RRP £1.60)
Pron. ‘KEEN-WAH” (sorry, had to do it. If I can save one person from the perils of mispronunciation for the rest of their days, my purpose has been fulfilled). Haven’t tried this yet & I’m VERY funny with milk substitutes… I think I’ll make pancakes with it in the first instance. Good for dairy free diets!
GREEN’S EGG CUSTARD MIX (RRP £0.69)
OK, I’m not a fan of egg custard. The thought of it makes me want to heave…
…Any suggestions what I can do with it (NOT TARTS!)
MY VERDICT: Very impressive! I have the basic ingredients to make at least 3 meals, breakfast for the week (5 of us) & a pudding + drinks & treats. I’m really looking forward to trying it all!
