Degustabox: January - Review & Giveaway

I LOVE my food and I love the idea of subscription boxes so imagine my delight when I was approached to review Degustabox.

Degustabox is a monthly subscription box filled with delicious food products at only £12.99 per month. The best part is that there is no commitment necessary.

I was so excited as soon as I opened my box and Chris was already wanting to dive in. I had to shout, "No, I need to take photographs!!" Bless him. I must warn you, this is a photo heavy post!




Inside my box was:

Zico Chocolate Coconut Water
This drink is made from 85% coconut water (from concentrate) and a more-ish natural chocolate flavour. It is an excellent low calorie option with great hydrating qualities.

I only took one sip of the coconut water and decided that it wasn't for me. I'm not a big fan of water, even my diluted juice has to be really concentrated. For me, there just wasn't enough of a chocolate flavour for my liking. Chris really enjoyed it though!

Dorset Cereals Berry Granola
This granola contains a heavenly mix of traditionally baked oats and zingy blackberries and raspberries.

This is absolutely delicious and is a great way to start the day. I've only had a few bowls and Chris keeps stealing it all!

Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps
Jules Destrooper are a family company that have been baking biscuits for 125 years. Their Butter Crisp biscuits are made using rich summer butter and a secret blend of spices.

These go down great with a cup of tea and I must admit, they didn't last very long in our house! They have a gorgeous buttery flavour and were bigger than I expected them to be!

Amy's Kitchen Chunky Tomato Soup
This soup is made with organic ingredients and they put the same care and attention into it as home cooked food. It can be found in the free from section of supermarkets.

I'd never tried chunky tomato soup before, I'd usually stick to Heinz but this a welcome change. It really filled me with a roll and lunch and I will be purchasing more of Amy's Kitchen soups with my grocery shop. I don't eat soup very often but it has reminded me of how much I enjoy it!

GO! Kombucha China White tea
This item was included in the Degustabox in celebration of Chinese New Year. This tea faithfully adheres to the ancient Chinese recipe. It is filled with pro-biotic enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

This tea wasn't really for me. I don't tend to drink a lot anyway; water, juice, tea, coffee so the flavours just didn't satisfy me. I do know that others would probably appreciate it but it wasn't my cup of tea (pardon the pun!)

Maggi So Juicy and So Tender Sachets
We received these in So Juicy Sticky BBQ Chicken, So Tender Italian Herbs Chicken and So Juicy Mexican Chicken. We have bought all these varieties in the past as they are a quick and easy solution for a tasty midweek meal. I was really pleased to see these included as we love them. They're so easy to use and they have a 3 step guide on the sachet.

Quinola Express Pearl & Black
These are the perfect way to enjoy quinoa and save time. Quinoa is a superfood which is high in nutrients and it's gluten free. We used ours cold in a salad but it can be eaten heated as part of a side. They are organic and fairtrade and have won 4 Great Taste awards. This isn't something that I've tried in the past, and to be honest, I probably wouldn't have tried if it weren't for this box, but it is definitely something that I'll pick up in the future.

Goody Good Stuff Sweets
Goody Good Stuff sweets are suitable for vegetarian, Halal and Kosher diets and they use high quality ingredients to produce a range of confectionery that are gluten, dairy, soy, nut and high fructose corn syrup free. We received a bag of Tropical Fruit and Sour Mix & Match. These were the first items that we opened, naturally, and I think they were all scoffed in around 3 minutes? They taste no different to non vegetarian sweets. My best friend is on a gluten free diet so I will definitely be picking some of these up for her!

Degustabox have given my readers a discount code for £3.00 off when registering. Just enter: GPEEK
