May DegustaBox Review

It doesn’t seem like two minutes since I was reviewing last months Degustabox box of goodies. But another month has flown by and another jam packed box has landed on our doorstep. I love the fact that I know nothing about the products within the box until I open it up. This month’s box, as with all our previous deliveries arrived in excellent condition and contained a variety of products inside. 

In this months box we received:

1 packet of Lightly Salted Sweet Potato Kettle Chips. These chips contain 50% less fat then normal chips. Ideal for sharing and perfect for those having World Cup parties. Available in Lightly Salted or Sweet Chili flavours from Waitrose priced at £2.49 a pack.

1 packet of Garofalo Pasta. Perfect for eating as a snack or a family meal, ideal for making pasta and sauce or a pasta salad whilst the weather is nice. This pasta is made near naples and is priced at £1.89 for a 500g bag.

1 box of Taylors Blackberry and Elderberry Teabags. Taylors have teamed up with the Royal Botanical Gardens to offer 6 tea infusions (Blackberry & Elderberry, Sweet Rhubarb, Chamomile & Vanilla, Lemongrass & Ginger, Peppermint Leaf and Spiced Apple . Each box is priced at £2.99 and contains 20 wrapped tea bags.

La Cassica Passata. This is ready to use and comes in a plastic bottle rather than the normal glass jar. It is priced at £1.35 and is perfect for making that authentic Italian pasta dish.

1 box of Elizabeth Shaw Flutes. These devine chocolate sticks are available in a selection of fillings and flavours. They make the perfect after dinner accompaniment. They are priced at £2.59 a box. We are even thinking of having these as part of our wedding favours as they would look lovely sat on each table.

2 packets of Raw Energy Chewing Gum. Each pack contains 18 pieces of sugarfree gum which gives you a boost when you need it most. The raw gum has a unique taste and is rich in vitamin B. Each pack costs 99p.

Degustabox is a monthly subscription service. You pay £12.99 (this includes delivery) and each month you will receive a box of 10 – 15 surprise food products – some of which are new products. The value of items in your box will always be more than what you have paid. The value of all the products in my box this month was £20. However, if you aren’t happy with the service and you wish to cancel your subscription you can do so at any time as you are under no obligation to buy more boxes than you want too.


If you would like to try Degustabox for yourself, My Three and Me have been given a code for you to use. It will give you £3.00 off your first box. Simply enter TIDWW at the checkout.  For more information, you can check out Degustabox on Facebook and Twitter too.

We will be reviewing Degustabox again next month. I can’t wait to see what surprises awaits us in our next box.
