We are already a week into the school holidays and our monthly Degustabox delivery recently landed on our doorstep. Regular readers will know that every month we are sent a box of delicious foods all of which are a surprise. We have no idea what's inside until we open the box up.
For those of you who don't know 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.
Inside this months box:
Sarson's - Balsamic Vinegar, the perfect accompaniment to a salad. Sarson's Balsamic Vinegar provides a distinctive aroma and has a tangy taste. Liven up your salads or homemade pesto with this vinegar.
