Hi there and welcome to my August 2014 Degustabox review of my one and only foodie box. Unless you are new to this these parts, you will know I subscribed to receive this foodie box monthly. To subscribe
it is easy and its very affordable and the charge £12.99 includes delivery charge. What you get is worth more than the price of the subscription so I think this is a win in my book.
August 2014 Degustabox
Last month’s box I got a lot of items that required me to be in the kitchen to use them. I am not complaining just saying how it is and most of you know I hardly ever cook where I live. So though I loved the content of the July box I hardly used it plus there was an issue with the first box. The delivery company didn’t handle the boxes well so my bottles came broken and everything was soaking wet. I did contact Degustabox who quickly arranged for a new box with everything re-sent to me within 2 days. This definitely impressed me and made me happy, this month’s box everything has come as it should.
Mexican Dave’s tortilla chips
I am not a tortilla chips person but boy do I love these, they taste great and they are very affordable (£1 only). For me I love these so much, no MSG or anything artificial plus they were cooked in sunflower oil. They are available in Tesco from the 25th August and get a recommendation from me.
Berry White organic drinks
These drinks are really delicious and it does what it says on the bottle. I got the berries with peaches and absolutely loved the flavour. The Berry White drinks come in different flavors and can be purchased from Waitrose or online at Ocado for £1.59 each. I think this is really reasonable and happily recommend this drink to all.
I do not know if I have ever used flavor shots before (does chicken/beef stock cubes count?). These flavor shots look really interesting and cannot wait to try them out. They are priced at £1.39 for 2, isn’t that just fantastic? I mean what more can you ask for? They come in 8 different flavors, and can be bought at any UK leading supermarket. I got Mexican fajitas and Spanish smoked paprika chicken, these too I am recommending to all.
Ok I have a confession to make I LOVE COCKTAILS, my friends and I are familiar with this little baby. We’ve tried similar ones when we were at university a few moons ago. I am yet to try this flavour out but will take them with me next week to celebrate my friend’s birthday in London. The price is reasonable (£2.50) since in clubs they charge anything from £5 upwards for a decent cocktail. I do not have to recommend because it’s a no-brainer that this will be drunk and enjoyed.
I LOVE LINDT CHOCOLATE, actually all chocolate (excluding dark chocolate), I shed a beautiful happiness tear. Firstly I love the packaging for me it really helps when buying something from chocolate to makeup. Y’all know Lindt is quality and pricey but that’s ok because this good chocolate is £3.49. This comes highly recommended.
What I love about Degustabox is that there is always something for everyone in the family. This kids drink is super cute and I drunk it quickly and happily like a kid (don’t judge). I got the Apple & Pear flavor and I love 100%, the price is more than ok its £1.89 for 3 of these. Best part is there is no added sugar to them or any artificial anything.
Brioche Pasquier – 8 pains au lait
Well what can I say, firstly I was super surprised to find this product in the box. Then I was super happy because that meant I didn’t have to go buy any rolls. They are so soft and so yummy it hurts, they are so moist and just delicious. They are priced at £1.69 which I do not think is actually bad even for frugal me. Brioche Pasquier – 6 pains au chocolate, contains chocolate and it just as tasteful but 10 pence pricey (£1.79).
I finally got the edible wafer cases – when I was a kid I was always annoyed that I lost some of the cupcake to the cover. Have always wondered why no one thought of making cases that I can eat (don’t judge). I am so happy and I am taking this home with me this weekend so we can use them.
In this month’s box I got an extra coupon (£3) which I can use to purchase a 4 pack of Bircher Muesli (MOMA). I cant not wait to run to Sainsbury’s and grab me these wonderful yogurts. The August 2014 Degustabox has definitely impressed me 100% have enjoyed it more than any other box. Degustabox has saved me money in the long run and is very timely.
