The Christmas themed Degustabox* is always my favourite of the year, so I was delighted when my November box came filled with festive products to get me excited for the big day. Receiving my monthly Degustabox is like being treated to a surprise food hamper every month, although it isn’t as repetitive or expensive as those on the high street. In fact, if you use my discount code – 2RS8F – to get your first box for only £5.99 (usually £12.99) you can divide all the products and make the most adorable mini hampers for loved ones. Last month’s box contained products from Pip’s Real Hot Chocolate, Millions, Heinz and Kabuto Noodles. My unboxing post is available to read here.
My favourite product this month was, undoubtedly, this full-sized bag of Cacao Superior Colombia Coffee from Taylors of Harrogate (£4.49). I’m a huge coffee lover/addict and this is simply heaven in a bag. I love it when my Degustabox contains coffee products but the aroma and taste of this is unbelievable. Definitely one of the highest quality coffee blends that I’ve ever tried. There are two variations available, subscribers may receive this one or the Rare Blossom Ethiopia variety.
There are two soft drinks included this month. The first, Dalston’s Fizzy Apple (£1.98) a sparkling apple soda containing Jonagold, Idared and Bramley apples from Kent and the second, ALO (£1.99) the only quality-proven brand of Aloe Vera based drinks in the UK. While the latter was definitely not to my personal taste, I loved how refreshing and sweet the apple soda was. This month’s sweet treats include The Jelly Bean Factory Super Sours (£1.79), Cadbury Picnic Bites Share Bag (£1.99), PROPERCORN Perfectly Sweet Popcorn (89p) and Planters Fruity Chocolate Crunch (£2).
Whether you subscribe to a food or beauty box, it’s always great to receive a full-sized product. This huge box of Weetabix Additions Apple & Raisin (£2.99) is sure to be loved by the whole family. It contains a mixture of 100% whole grain, delicious apple, juicy raisins and a warming touch of cinnamon. Other cupboard favourites and Winter essentials include Kallo Organic Stock Pots (£1.80), Ryvita Multigrain Rye Cakes (£1.39) and The English Provender Caramelised Red Onion Chutney (£1.90).
It’s also worth noting that there are a few different variations of products within the November box. Subscribers will receive one of the following: Filipo Berio Classic Pesto, Filipo Berio Rio Mare Italian Tuna or Filipo Berio Formaggio Crostini which are randomly dispatched.
Degustabox is a subscription service that retails for £12.99 a month, this includes delivery. Payment is collected on the 11th of each month, however, there is no commitment, if you decide to cancel just let Degustabox know before the 9th. I also have a discount code – 2RS8F – which gets first-time subscribers £7 off their first box. This means, all this could be yours for only £5.99.
