Degusta Box Review - A Monthly Surprise Food Box !


Hello lovelies!

Last week I had the absolute pleasure to receive and review Degusta Box, a monthly surprise food box! Before I wrote this post, I had no experience of Degusta Box, and I had never even heard of them before. I'll firstly let you in on a little secret; I have never signed up or subscribed to any kind of monthly product box before. I know that many people receive product boxes, particularly beauty ones, however it's never been something that appeals to me and I've never wanted to invest in. However, if food is involved? Well, that's an entirely different story! The lovely guys over at Degusta Box must have read my food-obsessed mind, as they were kind enough to send me a box full of delicious delights, which I shall now share with you all! 

(Warning: This post is quite text heavy, as I love to talk about food!)


When I opened the box, I was presented with lovely brown paper and a box jam packed full of goodies. I was initially very impressed with the number of products they had managed to fit into the relatively small package. The first thing I spotted was a 'Degusta Box Fridge' envelope, and when opened contained a voucher for free Benecol Yoghurts - win! As if there wasn't enough in the box already, the guys spoiled us with vouchers to spend in-store! 

Anyways, onto the box. There was lots to get through, so let's begin...
Once I delved into the box, I instantly noticed that it was full of treats, and perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth! For instance, the first items I picked up were the Sour Jelly Belly Beans and the Toasted Marshmallow Creme. This made me very happy as I'm always craving a sugary snack, and white fluff is like heaven on a spoon. I hope nobody is expecting me to share, as that will not last long! There was also a very handy Enhance mini juice drink, which is perfect for those on the go. I try and drink as much water as possible throughout my day, and having this travel-size orange concentrate will come in very handy! I then came across this Original Nutty energy bar, guaranteed to give you a boost. I plan on saving this bad boy for a stressful day spent at uni when I need all the energy I can get. It seems like a healthier option than drinking 10 cups of coffee, so I'm definitely looking forward to that!
I was then incredibly pleased to find (not one, but two!!) Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli sauces. This sauce is a necessity in my house, and can be found poured on top of almost every meal. I can guarantee that there will be none left by the end of the week, so good thinking by the Degusta Box team to include two bottles! Along with the sauce, I found a 'Kents Kitchen' Meal Kit. I've never seen these before but the concept is really cool and perfect for lazy cooks like me! The small package contains cooking oil, herbs and sauce to help you create the perfect curry; you just need to add meat and carbs of your choice. I can't wait to try this and create some authentic and delicious dishes for myself!
Next out of the box was a very cute packet of Bear Alpha Bites and Dino Paws fruit shapes. I won't lie, the Dino Paws were eaten straight away. I've had these before and they are a deliciously easy snack for packed lunches and when you're on the go. A packet also provides one of your fruit and veg five a day, so even more reason to love it! I was then actually amazed when I pulled out of the box a whole Pasquier Brioche Sliced Loaf AND a full pack of Pasquier Brioche Pain au Lait. I am impressed that they had managed to fit in the box and stay intact. I have not eaten brioche in years, and seeing this product brought back some childhood memories for me. I remember my mum baking these when I was younger and it would be a treat for when we came home from school. I shared these with friends at the weekend, and they did not disappoint! :)
Next out of the box was two of what I think are everyone's favourite snacks; crisps and chocolate. I was very happy about these products, as crisps are my all time favourite snack, and who doesn't love chocolate?! I've decided to save the Dr Oetker Extra Dark Chocolate and Dark Cocoa Powder and use them to bake a chocolate cake nearer Christmas time. I will definitely share the recipe with you, so stay tuned for that later in the year! And as for the Special K Cracker Crisps? Well, they have long since been eaten, and I can confirm that they were delicious! :)
Finally, I pulled out a leaflet with recipe suggestions and a list of all the products with descriptions and full RRP prices. I thought this was a lovely last touch, and helped me to realise how much I would manage to save through purchasing the box. To buy all these products individually it would be over £24, however with Degusta Box, it only costs £12.99 including delivery. It's a considerable saving and by providing this price information, it made me feel very happy with my box, making the whole experience worthwhile!

* The Final Haul *


It wasn't until all the items were placed against each other, I realised just how much was packed into the box - There was a great feast of treats to share with all my friends and family! 
I'd like to say a big thank you to Degusta Box for sending me such a thoughtfully packed box, and for finally allowing me to experience my first monthly box. It was a great package to receive and it was a lot of fun opening it and discovering the products inside. It even felt like Christmas had arrived slightly early, with the huge amount of products to unveil. This is a service that I would definitely recommend, and if you've been interested by this post and would like to experience Degusta Box for yourself, here is a £3 off voucher code to use:  '0FWHI'.

More soon,

Helen

  18. I really like this post! :) I've never had a subscription box, but I really want get one (I forgot it's name right now though :/). All the food looks really good, especially the marshmallow cream :3 The recipe page was really cool too! I don't know if it would be something I would subscribe to, just because I'm really picky with food and a surprise food box may not be the best thing for me, but it looks really cool :)
