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
Schwartz Authentic American Flavour – 2 x £0.85
Original O’s Savoury Cumin and Sesame Nibbles – £2.99
Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread Scottie Dogs – £1.95
Light Bites – Superfood Fruit Bar – £1.25

Berrywhite Organic Drinks – £1.39

Total box contents – £23.93

I also received ENRJ – Energy Juice in Mango & Passion fruit and Apple & Berries priced at £1.75 each, which is what would have been in the non alcoholic box, making that box a value of £23.45.

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.

UK Degustabox April 2017 – Unboxing Vlog & Review

With no obvious seasonal theme I wasn’t sure what to expect from the April Degustabox*, which I personally think makes it just that little bit more exciting. As usual Aria and I opened it together and filmed an unboxing video while scoffing some of the contents to provide a review of sorts.

We were happy with the contents of the box, bit of a shock but Aria’s favourite wasn’t the chocolate! She loved the Seabrook Lattice crisps, as did I, but my ultimate favourite had to be the Machu Picchu flavour Dorset Cereal. The crunch of the nuts and the hint of coffee is the perfect way to start the morning, or it would be if I wasn’t doing SlimFast right now!

The Nothing But fruit snacks were nice, but the packs were very much full of air and the majority of the contents had crumbled during transit. Another stand out product was the Doisy & Dam’s Quinoa, Smoked Tea & Vanilla chocolate, it had a very intriguing taste and I kinda liked it. Don’t get me wrong, it is never going to beat a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk for me, but it is a nice change if you fancy mixing things up now and then.

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

  • Seabrook Lattice – £1.50
  • POLO Sugar Free Pot – £1.49
  • CELIA Organic Lager – £2.49
  • Garofalo Whole Wheat Penne Pasta – £2.19
  • GOOD HEMP Hemp Seed Hearts – £4.49
  • Dorset Cereals – £4.89
  • Doisy & Dam’s Quinoa, Smoked Tea & Vanilla Chocolate – £1.75
  • Nothing But – 2 x £1.20
  • Whitworths Full of Super – £1.50
  • VIPnuts – £1.25

Total box contents £23.95

I also received a bottle of Fentiman’s Grapefruit tonic water which isn’t showing on my card, I can only assume that this is an alternative to the lager in the box. This is priced at £2.99 which would mean that the alternative box is priced at £24.45 – two fantastic value boxes this month.

If you fancy trying Degustabox for yourself sign up here and get your first box for £5.99, plus free delivery and a bonus item.

UK Degustabox March 2017 (The Easter Box) – Unboxing Vlog

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
  • Whitworths Cacao Raw Bars – £1.50
  • Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Mylk – £1.89
  • Gusto Organic Lemon Energy – £1.50
  • The Jelly Bean Factory Fairtrade box – £1.49
  • @onepoundsers Chocolate Eclairs – £1

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).

UK Degustabox February 2017 – Unboxing Vlog

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
