DegustaBox August Review | Get your Products reviewed

Degustabox August Review

Back in August DegustaBox had kindly sent me a parcel to review the goodies which comes inside the parcel. I must admit that I was thrilled like a small girl getting her birthday present. When the box arrived (box was signed for delivery), I was super excited and box was immaculately packed!

So what is this Degustabox?

Degustabox is basically a subscription based monthly food box full of surprises. Inside the box there are 10 – 15 products and many of these products are completely new to the market. The boxes are £12.99 including delivery. Whilst it is a subscription service, it comes with no commitments.  (How nice!) They just ask that you let them know a few days before the payment for the next month is taken if you want to cancel. You can simply register for the service for yourself or give it as gift. There is an alcohol and non-alcohol version of the box and you can choose which one you prefer. How cool is that? What more!? I can share a nice discount code, which will further fetch you £5.00 discount, so your first box would be just £7.99. Remember you can cancel the subscription anytime, so worth the try for merely £7.99. Read on for the details.
