Reviewing the Degustabox – a Sweet Experience and a #Giveaway:
Well, so far at least because I’ve been happily eating my way through all the sweet things that arrived in my Degustabox.
Now, I was a little apprehensive about this particular review box – partly because I’d looked at last month’s box on other blogs and wasn’t that keen on some of the products. While it’s all about personal taste, it can be difficult to review something where a number of items are things you don’t particularly like (in my case beer!).
January’s box though, seems to have something of a health theme. My box contained
1 bottle of Kombucha tea (rrp £2.19)
1 packet of Alice and Oscar’s quinola (rrp £2.55)
1 box of Dorset Cereals Berry granola (rrp £3.79)
1 packet of goody good stuff tropical fruit jellies (rrp £1.50)
1 packet of goody good stuff sour mix and match (rrp £1.50)
3 packets of Maggi so juicy/so tender (rrp £0.99 x3)
1 packet of Jules Destrooper (rrp 1.19)
1 bottle of Zico chocolate coconut water (rrp £2.00)
1 tin of Amy’s kitchen soup (rrp £1.69)
Everything arrived in a smart branded box, nicely wrapped up to avoid breakages. And, as always there was a sense of excitement opening up the ‘suprise box’. As you can see, it does add up to a lot more than the £9.99 the box retails for – about twice the RRP. But of course the main issue is whether or not you would buy and use products like this or whether they will end up gathering dust in your store cupboard. For me I can hand on heart say yes to enough of the content to cover the cost (I’ve already eaten the lovely sweets and the biscuits and I know I will use the granola, the soup and the quinola). And I am quite relaxed about having the other things to try at some point. And, I’m in the unusual situation of only buying food for myself. I know that in a family house there would be a chocolate drink lover who would enjoy the coconut water and that the maggi recipe mixes would be used for quick and easy family meals. So, if your household likes to experiment a bit, this isn’t a bad way to have a good lucky dip selection of food. Watch out for posts later on where I try using some of the products!
Anyway – I’m pleased to say that Degustabox have offered one lucky London-Unattached reader a trial box of their own for free. If you’d like the chance to win your first Degustabox, just work through the rafflecopter!
