UK Degustabox September 2017 – Unboxing & Review

My September Degustabox post is gong up really late, if you’ve been following me on social media you will know that both Aria and I have been poorly which has meant that I’ve been unable to get my work done! Aria finally seems to be on the mend, so here it is, a review and an unboxing of the UK September Degustabox.

The good thing about being super late sharing my unboxing video is the fact that I’ve tried a few more of the products than I usually would. The peanut sauce that I was really looking forward to wasn’t very nice at all, it had a sour tang to it and just wasn’t for me, although I’m sure others would love it. The rice by the same brand however was delicious, both Aria and me enjoyed it for lunch one day during the week (and left the uneaten sauce on the side).

The favourite product in our house was probably the Oat Crisp Cheerios, we love eating these as a snack dry or for breakfast with milk. They are super tasty.

I really can’t decide if I loved this box or not. I missed the snack element, for me the whole Degustabox experience is opening it and trialling a variety of foods straight away, with this box that just wasn’t there. However, we will use all of the products, there isn’t anything that one of the three of us won’t eat or use, which has to be a good thing!

UK Degustabox July 2017 – Unboxing & Review

I’m super late posting my July Degustabox review*. It arrived with us about two weeks ago now but I have been so busy what with playing catch up following the house move and a lack of childcare I just haven’t had time to edit my video and write my review. Better late than never though hey!

I have to admit that this was the most disappointing box for me so far, even Aria seemed pretty disappointed! Don’t get me wrong I’m more than happy with my wine and I will use most, if not all, of the content, but it was just boring.

UK Degustabox June 2017 – Unboxing Vlog & Review

The barbecue themed June Degustabox* landed on my doorstep yesterday. Knowing that they don’t tend to send fresh food I was unsure as to what to expect in a barbecue themed box, and I ended up being pleasantly surprised with the contents.

While the box didn’t initially blow me away there are plenty of items that I am really looking forward to trying, including the chilli & coconut quick cook sauce, but, it may yet be too spicy for me, and the BBQ pulled chicken sachet. Of course my favourite item in the box was the shortbread biscuits!

Onto the pricing, the products and prices on my content card were :

Eisberg Sauvignon Blanc Alcohol Free Wine – £1.49
Capsicana Brazilian Chilli & Coconut Quick Cook Sauce – £1.99
Haribo Summer Frenzy – 2 x £1 each
Spoon Apple & Peanut Granola – £3.70
Light Bites – Mango with Vanilla Yoghurt Fruit Chips – £1.49

UK Degustabox May 2017 – Unboxing Vlog & Review

We received our Picnic themed Degustabox* for May on Tuesday, I wanted to get stuck in straight away but I decided to leave it for a day, the reason being that Wednesday is my weigh in day and therefore my cheat day. I don’t know about you guys but I think that sampling a Degustabox is one hell of a way to enjoy cheat day!

We were really pleased with the box this month, there were a great variety of products and something that we all loved. Between the three of us it will all get eaten, maybe bar the cereal as that requires soaking in apple juice and we already have one box in the cupboard similar that has been there for months as we just don’t buy apple juice.

My favourite item was the Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp, it was beautiful, as you can tell by the photo Aria enjoyed it too! This was closely followed by the Cereal Lovers CrunchTime Nuggets. Spencer’s favourite was the Portlebay Popcorn, if you watch the video you will see that I didn’t enjoy this at all, it almost made me cry! I also really appreciated the bottle of Crabbie’s, it is my favourite Summer drink so to open the box and find that in there on what felt like the hottest day ever was a real winner. It went straight in the fridge and was drank that evening.

Onto the pricing, the products and prices on my content card were :

  • Zeo Soft Drinks – £1.19
  • Crabbie’s Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer – £1.89
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Caramel Crisp – £3.49
  • MOMA Gluten Free Raspberry & Coconut Bircher Muesli – £3.20
  • Millions chocolate – 2 x £0.50
  • Millions sour – £0.60
  • Cereal Lovers CrunchTime Nuggets – £1.59
  • Deli Kitchen Skinni Wrap – £1.25
  • Homepride Strong White Bread Flour – £1.50
  • Hippeas In Herbs We Trust – £1.50
  • Portlebay Popcorn – £0.79
  • Candy Kittens – £3.00

Total Box Contents £21

I also received Striking El Salvador Coffee Bean Bags £4.50 which is what would have been in the non alcoholic box, making that box a value of £23.61.
