Degustabox August 2015

It has become a regular blog post that I write every Month, and I really enjoy sharing with you the contents of the box. If you are unfamiliar with Degustabox,  it is basically a Monthly subscription service where you receive around 9-14 surprise food and drink products which are often new to the market or products you might not normally buy in the Supermarket. The box costs £12.99 per Month, which is a fraction of the price of the products inside the box if you bought them individually. I also have a £3 off discount code GUBN9 which you can apply at the checkout to make the box just £9.99.

Williamson Tea in Ginger Grove 

I like flavoured tea and I really enjoyed this ginger tea! It was more strong than I expected but not overpowering. I'm interested in trying more flavours from this brand, mint garden sounds amazing!

Scheckters Organic Energy Lite 
This sparkling energy drink was quite refreshing and woke me up on an early morning. I really like trying different energy drinks so I was glad to see this in the box this Month.


I am a big Ryvita fan and actually have a few of these packets in the cupboard already! We received the black pepper flavour and the sesame flavour. Sesame is my particular favourite, great to eat with cheese spread!

Fru Snax

We received these in a previous box and really liked them!  They were an extra in this box because last Months box arrived damaged, which is so nice of Degustabox! They are fruit pieces covered in yoghurt, really tasty snacks. This peach flavour tastes so sweet and full of flavour, and is probably my favourite that I have tried from the brand so far.

Delicious Alchemy Gluten Free Oaty Cookie Mix

This is the only item in the box we haven't tried yet, but I am eager to. It is brilliant that a gluten free product has been included in the box. I love cookie mixture and am looking forward to try this.

Dr Oetker Mug Cake

We received a selection of flavours, which were rich chocolate, lemon and chocolate chip. I was so impressed how easy it was to make these! We ate them straight out our mugs of-course!

Little Miracles

I have mentioned before that we are big fans of this brand in this house, thanks to Degustabox, so it is always a good response when they are included in Degustabox. My Sister loves them, they are a really refreshing drink.This is another extra in this box because last Months box arrived damaged.

 Bahlsen Choco Lebriz White

These are so moreish and delicious! My other half loves white chocolate so I didn't get much of a look in with these, but they are really sweet and yummy. I like the other flavours of these too!

Bahlsen Pick Up! Dark Chocolate

These sandwich chocolate biscuits are a big hit in our house, the dark chocolate flavour is very rich and sweet. I love these as they are good for picnics, a truly delicious chocolate biscuit treat.

 Walkers Biscuits

I love love love shortbread biscuits in particular so these didn't last long! The individual packets makes them ideal for picnics and to put in a lunch box. 

 Barilla Pasta and Sauce

We received Barilla Penne Rigate Pasta and the Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce. I loved the sauce, it was a tomato and chilli flavour which had a really great kick to it. It was nice to be able to try both the pasta and sauce together, I had never tried from this brand before but I thought it was great that Degustabox included both so we had a full meal out of it! 

 Life Tonics
The Life Tonics drink was a very refreshing and light drink. The flavour we received was the elderberry and juniper. I'm not usually the biggest fan of coconut water if I am honest, but this was a really nice way to drink it with the added flavours.

I have to say this is my ultimate, favourite box ever! I adore pasta and sweet treats, tea and crispbread, so this box has literally ticked every box for me! There is nothing I do not like!

Have you tried Degustabox before?
