Degustabox August Review

august degustabox

It’s Degustabox time again 🙂

It seems Degustabox have changed their courier, this time it was sent to me by Parcelforce rather than DPD. I missed the parcel so the left it at my local post office to pick up, which is only 2 minutes from my house.

They’ve chucked in something a bit extra this month, which is called the Degustabox fridge. It’s a coupon you get so you can go and redeem an extra treat at a supermarket. It’s from the chiller section which is why it’s not sent with the rest of the products. Cute.

Degustabox offered the ‘alcohol’ and ‘no alcohol’ option again. I was sent both products as I’m reviewing on le blog.

I love opening the box and having the first look at what’s inside. I try my best to avoid any spoilers as the surprise factor is what I like the best about subscription boxes. Let’s see what’s inside.

Moma Bucher Muesli Multipack.

This is the coupon for the refrigerated product that can be redeemed at Sainsbury’s or Waitrose. It’s a multipack of 4 breakfast pots that include yogurt, oats and fruit. I’ve given this to Lilly, as I never go near a Sainsbury’s and Waitrose so she’s going to pick them up when she’s next in Leeds and try them out.

RRP: £2.99

Swhwartz Flavour Shots.

I did get something similar to these in my March Degustabox, but in different flavours. They are a recipe basis that has herbs, spices and seasonings for certain dishes. I have one for Mexican Fajitas and one for Spanish Smoked Paprika Chicken. It’s an easy way to season your food without faffing with loads of different ingredients. I made a paella with my last lot 🙂

£1.39 each.

Mexican Dave’s Chips.

Dave’s chips also appeared in the March box, but a nacho cheese flavour. I made some wonderful cheese nachos with them, which these could be used for too. I’m thinking of making some lovely homemade salsa to dip these bad boys into though.

These are free from artificial anything, cooked in sunflower oil and MSG free.

£1 per bag.

Fever Tree Tonic Water and Ginger Beer.

This was in the ‘no alcohol’ option box. Quality mixers in glass bottles. These just scream good quality. If I ordered a gin and tonic in a 5 star hotel, I’d expect it to be brought to my room with this on the side.

£1.69 each.
