REVIEW | OCTOBER DEGUSTABOX & GIVEAWAY


Hi everyone, as some of you may already know we have been reviewing Degustabox since the beginning of this year. Degustabox is a monthly food and drink subscription box which is delivered to your door for just £12.99 a month. They are filled with a selection of snacks, drinks, treats and different ingredients some of which you may have heard of and others not. I love receiving ours each month and the suspense of not knowing what's inside makes it even more exciting! Keep on reading till the end as I have a little giveaway for you all too!

Take a look at what was inside this months box:

1 x Special K Cracker Crisps – RRP £1.89
2 x Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Sauce – RRP £1.39 each
1 x Solo Marshmallow Creme – RRP £1.99
1 x Enhance Drink – RRP £2.49
1 x Jelly Belly Jelly Beans – RRP £2.50
1 x Bear Alpha Bites  – Small Pack
1 x Kent’s Kitchen Bengal Meal Kit – RRP £2.50
1 x Dr Oetker Premium Dark Chocolate – RRP £2.49
1 x Dr Oetker Dark Cocoa Powder – RRP £1.89
1 x Get Buzzing Flapjack – RRP £1.30
1 x BEAR Paws – RRP £0.55
1 x Sliced Brioche Loaf – RRP £1.69
1 x Brioche Pasquier Chocolate Chip Pain Au Lait – RRP £1.60


As you can see this month there was a variety of items inside the box, I'll admit this box didn't amaze me as I am quite fussy so it can be hard to find food items that I like. Having said that each box there has always been a number of items which I have loved and some which I end up palming off to my mum as she is always happy to try new products. My favourite items were the Special K cracker crisps, Jelly beans, Sweet Chilli Sauce, Toasted Marshmallow Creme and Enhance. 

I'll be honest I haven't used anything else yet. The Enhance has come in handy for when out and about if Amelia needs her drink refilling as it saves buying a fruit shoot at £1 a pop. It's actually has a really nice flavour to it too which I liked as well. I'm not usually a fan of anything barbecue and despise barbecue sauce however these were delicious and with 60% less fat I can't complain there! They also come in a variety of other flavours which I can't wait to try! The sweet chilli sauce is a great cupboard staple and Amelia loves dipping prawn crackers in it. 

I'm not a fan of sweet bread so have given the Brioche loaf to my mum along with the Pains au lait as I don't eat them either however she said they went down well at breakfast time. Also, I don't really like healthy snack bars or flapjacks so instead of letting it go to waste I've given it to my dad for when he goes off on his walks in the mountains. 

So there's an insight into what you would usually find in your subscription box, I was surprised that there wasn't as many drink products this time however I'm not complaining and there were plenty of items to make up for that. We love the surprise of every Degustabox and love trying out new products. If you like what you see why not sign up for your own Degustabox for just £12.99 a month. I also have a £3 discount code for you to use when you register if you use the code UDIJP at the checkout. 

That's not all! This month I have teamed up with the lovely people over at Degustabox to give you the opportunity to win a box of your own! If you are the lucky winner you will receive December's box. You must be a UK resident (excluding Northern Ireland or Scottish Highlands and Islandsand 18 or over to enter. Ends on November 25th 2014. Good luck!

  24. I tried the first Degustabox and loved it....They seem to be getting better and better each month x

    ReplyDelete
  25. I used to get a Graze box but I cancelled it because really it was for me and Andrew wasn't a fan. But I think the Degustabox is a bit more varied so maybe he would buy into it? And like you said, if you aren't personally keen on everything you receive, then you can share it with friends and family.

  74. I've not used one before - O'm always afraid they'll be an expensive was to buy things. This one looks to offer a good variety.

    By the way, when I pressed the 'visit' for degustabox facebook, everything was in Spanish. Is that the correct link?

    ReplyDelete

  78. I tried Degustabox when it first came out, but kept forgetting to subscribe again.
    I subscribe to beauty boxes mainly, so was something different for a change

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like the variety in the degustabox. The only one I subscribe to is graze, which is healthy snacks

    ReplyDelete
  80. I've not tried a subscription box before but I think I'd like the fact that I would be more likely to try new things if they were just put in front of me :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love that it always seems to include interesting items that would expand my cooking range :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I get Graze boxes and love them so this is just a bigger version.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love the variety of new foods. I have tried one before

    ReplyDelete
  84. I tried Graze Box before but I felt they were too keen on raisins, and I really don't like them. (I know you can veto things, but so much of their range is raisiny!) I haven't tried Degustabox yet but I would definitely love to try one out.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Never tried a subscription box before .. but very tempted as I love the idea of trying new foods from aroud the world

  86. Never tried before but i always like trying new things

    ReplyDelete
  88. Never had a box before but I think it looks very interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I like the fact it gives inspiration on what to cook. I've never tried one before though.

    I think its a great way of experimenting with different flavours by using ingredients and products you wouldnt necessarly pick up when shopping.
