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.

Dr Oetker Edible Wafter Cupcake Cases.

Woo, this is exciting. Bun cases you can eat. I can’t wait to try these out, just need to figure out what to bake now!

£2.50 each.

Cawston Press Apple & Pear juice.

These are fun drinks for children’s lunch boxes or picnics. It’s 60% juice with 40% water for a lighter drink for children. No added sugar, of course.

£1.89 for pack of 3.


Brioche Pasquier.

I was sent 6 pain au chocolats and 8 pain au lait. These are great for breakfast and on the go snacks, fluffy puff pastry and moist brioche roll for a tasty treat. I often see this on offer in Tesco for £1 each, too.

£1.69/£1.79 each.


Lindt Hello Just For You.

This cute, heart chocolate tin is a great little gift for a friend or yourself. It has 10 lovely heart shaped chocolates inside.



Caribbean Twist Strawberry Daiquiri.

This was in the ‘alcoholc option’ box, a sparkling ready mixed Strawberry Daiquiri. It’s got 7.5% real juice in and you can get it in most supermarkets. Perfect for warm evenings with friends.



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.


As always, Degustabox comes with the card letting you know information about each products and 2 recipes on the reverse.

  1. I’m really intruiged by this, I’ve seen the beauty boxes but had no idea you could get a subscription box for food, how amazing! It looks like you got some really good stuff too. Fever Tree tonics are so lovely (if you’re a big G&T fan like me!) and the edible cake cases sound so much fun, I can’t wait to hear what you do with them 🙂

  2. I actually thought the ‘Fridge’ packet was going to be some sort of cool box with a chilled item inside – clearly I expect TOO much from subscription boxes haha!

    Loving the look of the edible cake cases, and the Lindt hello chocolates are divine! Make sure you try some of those!

    I’m with you on the fancy tonic bottles too, they’re so swanky and hotel-like!

  3. This is a great box, it had lots of products I either like or would like to try. The Swhwartz Flavour Shots are lovely I use the paprika one with chicken it is delicious but is high in fat. Why is it everything that tastes good is high in fat. The water with berries sound nice and your set for breakfast with all that brioche Lucy x
