Degustabox Review

I can't believe another month has already passed us by. Before we know it we will be putting up the Christmas Tree and seeing in the new year. We have also had another lovely Degustabox delivery land on our doorstep and let me tell you that this month's box has probably been one of my favourites.


If you've never heard of Degustabox then let me fill you in. Degustabox is a monthly subscription food box. You pay £12.99 (this includes delivery) and each month you will receive a box of  9 - 14 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. 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.


In this months box:


Two packets of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (85p each). Each pack contains 3 Peanut Butter Cups. I absolutley love peanut butter and I love Reese's so these were a huge (huge) hit with me when I saw them sat on the very top of my box. Although there is enough to share around I never (ever, ever) share my Reese's and as my birthday was last week I didn't share them. Each cup is full of yummy peanut butter and covered in Hershey's chocolate. 

One Raspberry Marshmallow mini box (£2.00). Each box contains 3 pieces of 100% natural, sweet and fruity Raspberry marshmallows. I have to be honest ans say that I'm not a fan of marshmallows so I didn't try this product but the boys and Matthew love the stuff and they said that they tasted lovely and had a sweet but tangy flavour to them.

One bag of Red and Black Wine Gums from Maynards (£1.50). Whenever we buy a bag of sweets the ones that go first as the red and black ones. They are my favourites but there never seems to be many in a packet - until now. A bag full of just red and black sweets (strawberry and blackcurrant flavoured) what more could a girl ask for?

One bag of Bassett's Berry Mix Jelly Babies (£1.50).  Each bag contains only strawberry, blackcurrant and raspberry flavoured sweets. The sweets only contain natural colours and flavours. I'm not a huge fan of Jelly Babies but who can't resist a strawberry or blackcurrant flavoured sweet?

One bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from The Olive Shop (£3.00). This oil has an intense fruity aroma. Perfect to use when cooking, baking and frying.

Two bottles of The Good Cider (£1.50 each). I love cider it is one of my favourite alcoholic drinks. This cider is made from Apples grown in Spain and made using traditional ways. There are different varieties available - apple, pear, peach and wild berries. I find that cider is best served chilled and I seem to enjoy my cider more on a weekend - I wonder if this is because I know there's no school run to do the morning after?

One pot of Spicy Szechuan Posh Noodles from Kent's Kitchen (£1.85). Posh Noodles are perfect for lunch at work, home or while on the go. Each pot is full of low calorie and low fat noodles. All you need to do is add water and stir well.

Two cartons of Up & Go breakfast drink from Down Under (£1.39 each). These drinks are designed for people who don't have time for breakfast in the morning. As their name suggests they can be drank whilst on the go. They are full of fibre, protein, milk and calcium - in fact they have the same amount as what a bowl of cereal has in it.

One box of Compete Energy Bites (£4.49). Each energy bite is low in calories and infused with caffeine - 1 piece = 1 large premium coffee. They provide an instant boost to help improve your alertness, endurance and energy. It is recommended that you eat one bite 5 minutes before physical exercise, driving or studying. 

One bottle of Sweet Sally Tea (£2.40). Black tea with a hint of citrus and spice. Is freshly brewed organic Ceylon black tea with Spanish oranges and Sicilian lemons, a touch of organic sugar and a blend of cinnamon and cloves. I quite liked the taste of this tea. It isn't something that I would normally drink but I am glad that I had the chance to try it.

For more information about Degustabox you can find them on Facebook and Twitter. If you'd like to try Degustabox, My Three and Me have a code that you can use to get £6 off your first box. Simply enter BLDEG15 at the checkout. 

I'm looking forward to when next months delivery arrives, and seeing what treats await us.
