Degustabox Review and #Giveaway

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!

    Lots of cupboard staples with long use by dates so you don’t have to use everything straight away

    An edible boyfriend! Failing that, lots of goodies I’ve never tried before such as crisps and snacks

    I’d love to try Dorset cereals….also what’s Jules Destrooper? I think I’d like to try that too because of it’s fun name!

  5. Tracey Belcher says

    For me anything that I have not had or tried before – it is all about new flavours – so some thai spice would be nice :)

  6. lyn burgess says

    exotic dried fruit, and one or two recipes for unusual waysto use whatever is in the box

  7. LINDSEY CLARK says

    There is already alot of nice stuff in here – Id like to see organic Mango or Pear juice.

    I like the look of the the Quinola quinoa in this box, I’ve never actually tried quinoa, but I’ve had it in mind for a while now. So I would love to try this.

    I have never even heard of Degusta boxes before! Thank you for the introduction! Anything really! I love trying new foods – but am gluten and dairy free so hopefully they have some of that stuff I can eat :) In yours above, the Kombucha, Amy’s and Quinoa would have made me grin from ear to ear :)

    Some new brand or type of tea that I haven’t tried yet, like matcha, which is very pricey, and I’d love to try it before buying a box and then not liking it.

  11. Rachael Barratt says

    Something a little bit exotic that I wouldn’t normally have the guts to buy myself!

  12. Lisa Everaert says

    NO calorie Chocolate that still has the same taste as normal chocolate (heres to wishing) <3

  13. Helen Aiken says

    I’d love to find some of those lovely Jules Destrooper biscuits, though tbh I’d be happy with anything that was tasty and a bit of a treat. :)

    Im teaching myself to cook chinese at the moment – with the help of Gok’s book so any chinese products would be great
