After enjoying my first Degusta Box so much, I was thrilled when the company asked me if I would like to review another (Read my first review here!). Not only did I enjoy the previous box myself, but I was able to share so much of the contents with family and friends. I eagerly awaited the arrival of the next box, and was very excited to open it once it arrived at my door!
When I first opened the package, I was again amazed at the number of items that they had managed to fit into the relatively small box. The Degusta team do such a great job at packaging and ensure each item is kept safe during transit. For instance, the amount of bubble wrap I removed from the box is a present in itself - Who doesn't love popping bubble wrap? Haha!
Anyways like my previous post, there will be lots to talk about, so let's begin!
Sitting perfectly at the top of the box was a fantastic packet of Kettle Chips. I am a huge crisp fan and was delighted to see a Stilton and Port flavour. I imagine this unusual flavour has been designed for the festive period, and I plan on sharing these with family around Christmas time. Similarly, there was a very generous portion of Lindt Melting Moments christmas chocolate snowflakes. There were five in the box altogether, which provides me with some excellent stocking fillers, or little sweet gift to give friends. Thirdly from the box, I pulled out a large jar of Branston Caramelised Chutney. Having recently discovered the wonderful world of crackers, cheese and chutney, I am delighted to receive this, and equally excited to try! :)
Unlike the last box that contained no drinks or beverages, this month's box had a very generous supply of five drinks. Again, I'm amazed they all managed to fit in the box! I firstly pulled out 2 x Pip Organic Cloudy Apple Fruit Juice, which are perfect fruit drinks to take to uni or drink whilst on the go. Next out the box was a perfectly packaged, full size bottle of Montano Cider, which will no doubt go down a treat at Christmas time! It was then followed with not one, but two Cool Dawn Herbal Recovery Drinks, designed to cure any hangover. These are therefore perfect to drink after the Montano Cider... Thanks for thinking ahead Degusta Team! The hangover recovery drinks sound brilliant for the upcoming party season, so I'm sure they will definitely come in handy! :)
Finally, there was a 'Sample Present' of Drink Me Chai - A Chai Tea Latte sachet. This product is a mix of exotic spices, milk and sweetened tea which provides 'a taste of India in an instant'. I've never actually tried Chai Tea Latte before, and so I'm looking forward to crossing that one off the list very soon!
After being impressed with the previous Kents Kitchen Kit, I was happy to see another sauce kit from the cooking range. The Flavour Shots can be easily added to any cooking pot and provide you with a brilliantly quick and easy way to jazz up any meal. The packaging says that it is perfect for fajita wraps, rice or even baked potatoes, so I'm looking forward to giving them a try soon. Similarly, in the box was two sachets of Holy Cow Indian Curry Sauce. Like most folk, I'm a huge fan of curry and these two flavours (Rogan Josh and Madras) will definitely not be left in the cupboard for long. I was also impressed to discover that the sauces are suitable for gluten and coeliac sufferers (like me) - Yay!
Lastly, at the bottom of the box was a leaflet featuring a list of all the products and their full RRP price, along with some lovely recipe suggestions. This is an excellent feature, as it allows me to see exactly how much money I would manage to save through purchasing the box. To buy all these products individually it would cost me over £22, however with Degusta Box, it only costs £12.99 including delivery. It is definitely 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 is always impressive to place the products against one another to show just how much is included in the box. I can honestly say that I am once again delighted with my Degusta Box delivery. I'm not sure if it's because of the wide range of lovely products that I can enjoy and share with friends and family, or whether it's because waiting for, and receiving a box feels like a Christmas present itself. I was genuinely very excited to open the box and discover what was inside, and even just experiencing that feeling makes it incredibly worthwhile.
