Degusta box Review – May 2020

Locked down? Bored of sitting at home? Bored of Netflix and other streaming services? Cooking new things? Looking for surprises? Here is Degusta box, a subscription based monthly food delivery service. Degusta box never disappoints.

I have been with Degustabox for close to 2 years now. Really? Yes! Degustabox is so good that I continue to be with it. I get my box delivered every month in timely fashion. Box costs £12.99 in subscription, and have 10-13 different types of products. Products range from vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, meat based, energy drinks, alcoholic drinks. All sorts of products and that’s the beauty. Every time some thing new and majority of products are worthy. The contents of box itself cost more than £22.50, hence its a bargain.

What is degustabox?

Degustabox is an online food subscription service in UK which delivers surprise boxs of food items on monthly basis. The items in the box are combination of well know items in market or new products to be launched.

What is subscription service?

It is a service where you pay to receive goods / service at regular intervals. E.g. Netflix, or Amazon Prime. Some of these services have a contract duration and some are on monthly contract only, i.e. if you don’t like them, then move on with no commitments, Degustabox is one such service.

So why degustabox?

Degustabox is a fairly good subscription service, with value for money, and no commitments. Monthly subscription is £12.99 and you new member and use a code given below in this post, can bring the first month’s cost to £10.99. In my experience the products offered have always exceeded the value of box by miles.

Beronia Rioja

Wine lover? That was a delight! Lucky to find a good wine in the box. Wine had fruity notes, mainly of blackberry and strawberry. 18.75cl bottle costs £2.99 and 75cl bottle costs £11.79. I certainly loved the flavour and smoothness. Will recommend this, if you a wine lover.

Bull’s-eye BBQ Sauce

I am familiar to Bull’s eye BBQ sauce and have tried it many times in past. This sauce goes well with chicken, or meat chops. With summer on us, I can say this sauce is something you need in your kitchen. The bottle costs £2.49 and one of the best bbq sauce is there.

Hellmann’s Salad Dressing

 In case you are a salad person like me, you may very well be aware of salad dressings. Hellmann’s salad dressing stand out. This salad dressing converts a boring salad to tasty one. I always keep one bottle with me, and finding one such bottle in the box was a pleasant surprise. Bottle costs £1.65 and I am ok with this pricing.

Hartley’s Juicy Jelly Pouches

People ask me why I like Degustabox? This is the reason. I get all sort of variety. These jelly pouches are for my kids. Whole family is happy. My daughter loves these jelly pouches. She can also eat it on the go (where do we go in lockdown?) The multiple pack costs £2.79, not bad!

Yes! Snack Bars

Yes! Snack bars. Absolutely familiar and fan of these snack bars. Loved mostly by my 8 year old and hubby too. While hubby keeps working in his room, he munches these bars. This is happy snacking. The multi-bar pack costs £2.99 and is available at Asda and Morrisons.

Mission Street Tacos

Got two packs of Taco warps from Mission. One was spicy one and other normal. New range for ready to make tacos. Not only I made tacos of these, I also made puris from this. An absolute must have. These are vegan and suitable for freezing too. These are available nationwide in Sainsburys and Morrisons. Each pack costs £1.20

Barebells Protein Bar

Another healthy munch in the box was this protein bar. As my daughter is doing home schooling. She keeps herself in her room during school hours, and this protein bar with hazelnut goodness was perfect snack for her. I will be looking to buy these protein bars again. These are available on Sainsburys and Amazon.

Xite Energy Drinks

Bored of usual energy drinks? Or want to try out some new exciting energy drinks? These are zero sugar drinks and certainly bursting with freshness. Got two cans of these in the box and each can costs £1.49 (normal subscription box will contain one). I found these energy drinks good, however will love if price can be little lowered.

Skinny Tonic Water

Found two cans of skinny tonic water. One was Indian and other was Mediterranean. Hubby loves drinks and he made the best of both skinny water in his cocktails. I am ordering full 24 can pack now. However if you want to begin with tasting one, each can costs £0.75 I am recommending this for a special evening or if you want to make good drinks to impress friends.

Lindt Lindor Milk Bar

Lindt! Anyone who has not heard of them? They have launched new milk bar. Milk chocolate with smooth filling, My daughter and I shared this lindt and was exceptionally tasty. The bar costs £0.85 and is reasonably priced. I only wished to have more. A good find in the box.

As you can see above, a box full of variety and surprises! If you got question about any specific product, please ask me. I will recommend trying Degustabox for a month and then see if it makes sense. Value wise, you can’t go wrong.

discount code

I will recommend you to go ahead and try a box to begin with, especially as you can use promo code of “MB6LZ” and get the box for only £10.99. After using first box decide if you want to continue receiving or not. Cancellation is always easy, just in case you change your mind.

PS: For reviewing the products, I have been offered this box free by Degustabox, though views here are purely mine and not influenced by anyone.
