Blog review and unboxing video March 2017 Easter themed UK Degustabox

I had high hopes for the Easter themed March Degustabox*, what choco-holic wouldn’t get excited about an Easter themed food subscription box winging it’s way to them, right? I expected posh chocolates, maybe even an Easter egg or two, but definitely lots of posh chocolates. Unfortunately it seems that I got a little carried away in a chocolate haze and the Easter themed box wasn’t exactly what I had expected it to be…


While the contents of the box were great I just wasn’t overly happy. Don’t get me wrong, it did contain a few chocolate products but nothing overly Easter-esque, posh or exciting. Saying that, the mint flavour Oreo was actually amazing and I want another right now. The peanut butter Oreo chocolate wasn’t as nice as I had expected and is one that I won’t be repurchasing. I also really enjoyed the Pipers crisps, which is high praise as I’m not really a crisp person.

Onto the pricing, as always there were two varieties of the box and I received all of the contents, unusually I have received the price lists for both boxes so I can show you an individual breakdown of both subscriber boxes :

Box 1 : £21.01

  • Heinz (Seriously) Good Sauces – £1.99
  • Pipers Crisps – £2
  • Naturelly £1.19
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo – 2 x £1.49
  • Maldon Smoked Sea Salt Flakes – £1.50
  • Weetabix On The Go – £1.39
  • Weetabix On The Go Protein – £1.99
  • Whitworths Cacao Raw Bars – £1.50
  • @onepoundsers Chocolate Eclairs – £1
  • The Jelly Bean Factory Fairtrade box – £1.49
  • Westons Cider – 2 x £1.99

Box 2 : £20.42

  • Heinz (Seriously) Good Sauces – £1.99
  • Pipers Crisps – £2
  • Naturelly £1.19
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo – 2 x £1.49
  • Maldon Smoked Sea Salt Flakes – £1.50
  • Weetabix On The Go – £1.39
  • Weetabix On The Go Protein – £1.99

  • Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Mylk – £1.89
  • Gusto Organic Lemon Energy – £1.50
  • The Jelly Bean Factory Fairtrade box – £1.49

As you can see all variations of the box are just shy of £20, which isn’t half bad for a box that costs £12.99, or £5.99 with discount code P2W4U (new customers only).

Degustabox february 2017 unboxing video - random box of food surprise hamper delivered monthly subscription

We recently received our February Degustabox* and I have to say, this one was a good one! It contained a good mixture including alcohol, chocolates and the other random treats that I have come to expect from this monthly food subscription box. As always me and my glamorous little assistant couldn’t wait to get stuck in and trial the delicious items from within the box, so I filmed an unboxing video.

My favourite product in the box was most definitely the Blossom Hill Fruit Bloom, I drank almost the entire bottle on the weekend and I really enjoyed it, it’s light and fresh and very pleasant. I think it’s safe to say Aria’s favourites were the Maui and Sons chocolate coated banana chips (they were delicious, I only wish that she had let me try more than one!) and the Diablo no added sugar chocolate covered wafer. I managed to sneak one bite of the chocolate wafer and it was delicious, a real treat with no sugar – winning!

Onto the pricing, the information leaflet in my box shows a total of £22.39 worth of products + a sample of Apple Cider Vinegar, which isn’t at all bad for a box that costs £12.99, or £5.99 with discount code P2W4U (new customers only).

The products on my information leaflet were :

Koko (dairy free milk alternative) – £1.50
Heinz no added sugar Beanz x2 – £1.30
Kabuto Noodles – £1.99
Bebeto Cheese Cake sweets – £1.69
Bebeto Candy Crush sweets – £1.69
Blossom Hill Fruit Bloom – £4.99
Peppersmith – £1.50
Coldpress – £2.79
New York Delhi’s Americanos – £1
Diablo No Added Sugar chocolate wafer – £0.95
Willy Chase’s Fitcorn – £1.99
Maui and Sons Chocolate Bananas – £1
Willy’s Apple Cider Vinegar – Free sample

As I am sent the box to review I receive the product choices for all of the box variations, so in addition I also received :

Peppersmith – £1.50 (subscribers received one of two items, I received both)
Just Be Honey Water – £1.49
Double Dutch Mixer – £1.19

I received the January Degustabox* this morning, I resisted opening it until this evening when Aria came home, the suspense killed me but I really enjoy filming the unboxing videos with her so decided to wait. The information leaflet doesn’t speciffically state that this is a healthy themed box but going on the content and the fact that it is January I am going to assume that it is.

As mentioned in the video this box was quite dull. It contains a lot of foods that I just won’t eat, and some that weren’t very nice. There were a lot of drinks in this box and while it is nice to receive one or two drinks (especially alcohol or coffee!) I did feel that six drinks was a bit too much.

I’m really looking forward to trying the hot chocolate, the Crabbie’s Ginger Beer and the coffee. While filming the video I didn’t realise that the Crabbie’s is Scottish Raspberry flavour which sounds delicious.

Onto the pricing, the information leaflet in my box shows a total of £25.29 worth of products (assuming that you actually go to get your yoghurt!), which isn’t at all bad for a box that costs £12.99, or £5.99 with discount code P2W4U (new customers only).

The products on my information leaflet were :

Quinola Mothergrain – £2.49
Aspire Drinks x 2 – £2.90
Finn Crisp – £1.89
Natvia – £4.99
Protein Boost – £1.29
Propercorn – £1.99
The Collective – £2.00 (there is a voucher for this rather than the physical item)
Fruittella – £1.25
Yushoi – £1.79
Crabbie’s – £1.39
Popchips – £1.99
The Chia Co x 2-  £1.32

As I am sent the box to review I receive the product choices for all of the box variations, so in addition I also received :

Real Hot Chocolate Co – £1.50
Island Coconut Flavour Infused Coffee – £2.99
Chosan Organic Hibiscus Drink with Fiery Ginger – £1.56

Firstly, apologies for the lateness of this post. My December Degustabox arrived in between Christmas and New Year and, as I’m sure you can imagine, life has been a little hectic since then. Aria decided to help me open this box and trial the contents which she loved, and she certainly adds the cute factor to the video. 

december 2016 degustabox unboxing - a monthly subscription box for surprise foodie items





As you can see we were very pleased with the contents of the December Degustabox. The box contained a wide variety of products including crisps, chocolates and drinks and has opened my eyes to a few new lunch ideas for 2017.


I love receiving my Degustabox each month, I always look forward to discovering new foods and drinks. It usually ends up being a complete bargain when you compare what you pay verses the total content worth, which makes up for the fact that there may be some items that you don’t like in the box. You can buy a one off box which costs £12.99, or subscribe for three months for just £11.99 per box.


If ordering a one off box be sure to use my discount code P2W4U to get £7 off your first box, meaning that you pay just £5.99 for one box.

I’ve received this month’s Degustabox box and of course I have filmed an unboxing video! This month is the Christmas themed box so I had high expectations for posh chocolates, tasty treats and, of course, booze! Watch my video to find out if I was left happy or sad, and carry on reading for a discount code off your first Degustabox and to find out exactly how much the content of my box was worth.

Degustabox UK Unboxing November 2016 - The Christmas Box - unboxing video and blog review

As you can see I was very pleased with the contents of my November Degustabox. It contained a good selection of products and I really think there is something for everyone. My favourite items were the Butterkist Choc-Mallow Popcorn (eating the whole bag as I type, 25g serving, pfffttt), the Michel et Augustin kooky cookies and the Broderick’s Crunchy Slam Dunk Peanut Chunk – notice a theme here? CHOCOLATE my friends!

I’m also really looking forward to trying the ciders from The Good Cider and the Pear & Cinnamon Strudel tea from Ahmad Tea Ltd.

Onto the pricing, the products in my box were :

Hartley’s Glitter Jelly x 2 – £0.75
Christian Potier Hollaindaise Sauce – £2.50
Butterkist Choc Mallow Popcorn – £1.49
Butterkist Sweet Cinema Style Popcorn – £0.28
Caramelised Onion Ryvita Thins – £1.89
Cracked Black Pepper Ryvita Crackers – £1.29
Wild Thyme & Rosemary Pipers Crisps – £2.00
Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps – £1.19

Ahmad Tea Ltd Pear & Cinnamon Strudel flavour – £4
Broderick’s Crunch Slam Dunk Peanut Chunk – £1.20
The Good Cider x 2 Strawberry & Wild Berry Flavours – £1.50

The contents of my box came to a whopping £22.96, but, as I’m a reviewer I receive all of the combinations of items, there were three different boxes in total – 1. received the Broderick’s peanut crunch and cider, 2. received the apple juice and tea, 3. received the apple juice and cider. The average subscriber value for this box is £18.50, which is still pretty awesome considering that the box costs £12.99 (or £5.99 with my discount code, carry on scrolling for that).

I absolutely love receiving my Degustabox, I always look forward to opening it and trialling the different foods/drinks. It’s like Christmas every month! It usually ends up being a complete bargain when you compare what you pay verses the total content worth, which makes up for the fact that there may be some items that you don’t like in the box. You can buy a one off box which costs £12.99, or subscribe for three months for just £11.99 per box.

If ordering a one off box be sure to use my discount code P2W4U to get £7 off your first box, meaning that you pay just £5.99 for one box.
