- Degustabox: May'16...
I find with subscription boxes the element of surprise wears off after a while and I end up a little, well, bored. Is it just me, or do they become repetitive - particularly beauty ones? That being said, one which keeps me on my toes is Degustabox*. More and more subscription boxes are being added to the market, but a favourite of mine remains: Degustabox. Straying away from the popular beauty theme this is in fact a food & drink delivery service. At just £12.99 (inc. delivery), it's a great way to explore different products you might otherwise bypass. There's usually 9-14 surprise items, most of which are new to the market. As always, Degustabox have kindly provided me with a discount code to share with you: simply type 'BLDEG15' when registering to get £6.00(!!!) off! So let's see what they have to offer this time around...
Brioche Pasquier Croissants, RRP: £1.80Pomegreat, RRP: £1.49
Any form of breakfast pastry gets an immediate yes from me. These croissants are wrapped in pairs to maintain freshness and I've been enjoying them warmed-up with berries - yum!
I've not had pomegranate juice before, but I adore pomegranates so was excited to taste this. I have to admit, it tastes nothing like the actual fruit, but it's a welcome change from water.
Garofalo Pasta, RRP: £1.99Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Barbecue Glaze, RRP: £1.99
Despite the food babies it causes, who doesn't love pasta?! This corkscrew shaped pasta looks delicious and I can't wait to rustle up something with it.
Next is quite possibly the star of this month's box: Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey Barbecue Glaze. I'm actually salivating just thinking about this.
Kallo Corn Cakes, Kallo Rice Cakes, RRP: £1.29, £1.69Mrs Crimble's Classic Madeleine, RRP: £2.10
Next is Kallo, a favourite brand of mine. I snack on rice cakes pretty much daily at work so was happy to see this yogurt coated variations and the added addition of corn cakes! I've not tried corn cakes before but they were soon consumed and will definitely be repurchased.
To also feel the snack-shaped hole in my life was this bag of French cakes. They're individually wrapped so I've been keeping one in my bag for when I'm on the go and need a quick pick-me-up.
Beloved Date Nectar, RRP: £3.50
I'm so excited to use this date nectar as I've been planning to bake a healthier flapjack sometime soon, so will definitely be using this. I bet it's a dream in porridge and on pancakes too!
Pechkeks Fortune Cookies, RRP: £1.00 (each)Get Fruity, RRP: £1.00The Wonderful Company Pistachios, Almonds, RRP: £0.90 (each)
Yay for exploring more snacks! However, the most bizarre product award goes to the Pechkeks fortune cookies. They're meant to be a giggle but I found them a bit...odd? Maybe my sense of humour is just lacking today :P. The actual product itself is black which feels immediately wrong and they smell super sweet, like that sugar paper used for baking. The messages inside were, 'feel free to waste the day away. it makes no difference in your case' and 'don't think so much about what you lack - focus on what you don't have' - erm, wtf?
Moving swiftly on, both the Get Fruity bar and selection of nuts get a thumbs up from me!
Cranes, RRP: £1.90 (each)
And last of all are these alcoholic beverages! I love fruity ciders, especially berry flavoured ones, so these Cranes drinks sound lovely - perfect for after a long day at work!
"This has to be one of the best boxes yet", I exclaimed to Rob as we were going through everything - and I stick by that. It has breakfast items, cooking ingredients, tasty drinks and yummy (+ quirky) snacks - good job Degustabox!
