DegustaBox Review | September 2017

In August, we received our first ever Degustabox and we were all really impressed with it and loved all the products in it. We loved being able to try new food and drink products that we wouldn’t necessarily have picked up in the supermarket, so we were really looking forward to seeing what was in our September box.

If you haven’t heard of Degustabox, It’s a monthly surprise food and drink subscription box, costing just £12.99. You can cancel them whenever you want and it’s a great way of trying new things. It arrives by DPD courier and I get an email and text message to tell me exactly what time it will arrive, so I can organise for it to be left in a safe place or delivered to our neighbours if were not in.

What was in the September Box?

Dream Ancient Grains RRP £1.60

I have never heard or tried this brand before, but I was relevantly surprised buy it’s taste. It is great on cereals.

Green & Blacks Velvet Edition Chocolate RRP £1.99

I love chocolate, but havent had this brand before but the rich taste of it meant you only needed a small amount.  It’s made with 70% cocoa.  I might buy this again when shopping as a treat.

Mentos Mint Mix Sharing Pouch RRP £1.19

We’ve been enjoying these on car journey but also at home.  They are refreshing and  very addictive to just keep picking at.  I will be sure to keep my eyes open for these on our shopping trips.

Latin American Kitchen by Santa Maria Rice RRP £1.85 Sauce RRP £1.85

We haven’t had these yet as we are finding something to make with it other than just chicken and rice, will post a picture when done.

Mi So Tasty Ramen Noodle Kit – RRP £2.99

I haven’t used this yet, however it looks great! This is a ramen noodle kit that comes with noodles, white miso, pastes and seaweed garnishes.

San Miguel Gluten Free RRP £2.00 (£9 per 6 Pack)

I’m not a beer or Larger drinker myself so gave this to the OH, and he happily drank it, didn’t seem to mind that it was gluten-free!

Knorr Concentrated Stock RRP £2.20

This was the first time I had ever used this and I must admit I was impressed. I like that it is convenient to dispense and there is less packaging than using lots of stock cubes. It tastes great in spagetti bolegnase and shepherds/cottage pie.

Virtue Energy Water RRP 2 x £1.35

I have actually had these before and I love them, so refreshing and something different to drink.  I will be sure to look out for these when I’m out shopping.

Nestle Cheerios Oat Crisp RRP £2.49 

This is a really nice blend of cheerios, the original O shaped ones, and oat flakes. These are delicious and best of all they are dairy free. These are great for lowering blood cholesterol too!

Green’s Egg Custard Mix RRP £0.69

This came with a little recipe card. Basically you can use this for a super simple way to make bread & butter pudding, or an egg custard tart. Green’s is a brand I’ve never used, but would in future.

Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna RRP £3.49

When I saw the price of this I was a little bit like WOW. However, It was yummy. It is designed not to be drained either, which I love. We enjoyed this in Tuna pasta bake!

As well as all of the above there was a voucher for Seriously Spreadable Squares. I LOVE spreadable cheese and are great to take to take on picnic or put in lunch boxes.

I never used to like bread & butter pudding but since using this I really like it.

We really enjoyed this month’s Degustabox. It costs just £12.99 a month, but the value of the contents is always much higher than that.

Do you like the sound of the Degustabox August 2017 box? You can order yours on the Degustabox website. Your order will come with free shipping. You will then receive a surprise box containing 10 to 15 items. A lot of the items within the Degustabox are new to the market. It is a great chance to try something new for a discounted price too.

*I was sent this box free of charge for the purpose of this review.  However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
