Review - Degustabox May*
Haven't heard of Degustabox? I will admit that up until about a month ago I hadn't heard of them either. Degustabox are a monthly, no commitment necessary, surprise food box service. You sign up, pay £12.99 a month and receive a surprise selection of food items. You can cancel at any time.
Degustabox is a great way of finding and trying out new products that you may not have discovered otherwise.
When Degustabox first got in touch and asked me to review a box I was a little unsure. I'll be honest, i'm a very picky eater. I don't enjoy trying new things so I thought the whole idea of a box full of surprise food items would be a nightmare for me but I'm pleased to say it wasn't. In fact I looked forward to receiving the box and couldn't wait to try the products inside.
So what was inside our box...
Garofalo Pasta £1.89
Cawston Apple drink £1
Taylors of Harrogate tea bags £2.99
2x Raw chewing gum £0.99 each
Cirio Passata £1.35
Cirio Puree £1.10
2x Hornby's cider £5 for 4
Kettle Sweet Potato Chips £2.49
Lizi's Granola £1.29
Elizabeth Shaw Flutes £2.59
Dr. Oetker Cake Release Spray £2.28
The contents come to a total of £21.46. I love the value for money in these boxes. The fact that you pay just £12.99 a month including delivery and receive these many products is great.
The box included a lot of brands that both me and Mark had never heard of before but also some of our favourite's including Kettle and Dr. Oetker. Mark has found a new favourite cider in the Hornsby's and I've really got back into baking recently so the cake release spray is amazing. Neither of us are a big fan of flavoured tea but we tried the Taylors tea bags and then gave them to my dad to try out.
We regularly eat pasta, passata and tomato puree but normally buy cheaper brands. The ones in the box are more expensive than what we normally buy but the taste is that bit better.
Not all of the products in the box would be something that we would buy but I love that you get to try them out and possibly find new brands that you love.
Overall I am very impressed with the Degustabox and I can't wait to see what is in next months box.
If you use the code QDUWR you will receive a £3.00 discount when you register with Degustabox! Don't forget to check out the Degustabox website, Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for reading,
