Degustabox For July


I am always excited when I receive my Degustabox delivery. This food box scheme guarantees value for money and some surprises every month.

So with some excitement I opened my July box...





 This is what I had in my box this month.



Elizabeth Shaw Milk Chocolate Amaretto Flutes - RRP £2.59

A little bit of an after dinner treat these chocolate flutes are sexily sophisticated. Little batons of smooth chocolate with an Amaretto flavour filling, they also contain no alcohol so can be safely shared with all.

Urban Fruit Perfect Pineapple - RRP £1.09

Don't be put off by the look of this snack. They are pieces of dehydrated pineapple but they pack a flavourful munch. Better for you than sweets or crisps, one 20g portion provides one of your five a day. Perfect to add to your kids lunchbox or why not pop some in your own if you go out to work.

Dr Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Grinder - RRP £4.99

Dr Oetker make great baking products. This vanilla grinder contains Madagascan Vanilla pods. The mill is easy to use with fine and coarse options. I am going to use it to make a New York vanilla cheesecake in the near future, so watch this space!

Be Fast Breakfast On The Go Banana Flavour x 2 - RRP £1.00 each

Now I don't know about you but sometimes I don't feel very hungry at breakfast time. These Be Fast milkshakes are packed full of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals and will be a great breakfast drink when you don't want to eat much. They aren't a low calorie option however having 200 calories per shake and they also have sugar added, but they taste delicious and are definitely worth a try.



Veetee Basmati and Wild Rice - RRP £1.49

We eat loads of rice in our household so I was keen to try this. We ate it with a low fat Chicken Tikka Marsala and we really enjoyed the slightly nutty taste. It is easy to heat, via the microwave or you can even stir fry it. A great store cupboard product when you want a quick meal.

Shaken Udder Chocolate Milkshake 

Well this disappeared sharpish, I think my son is to blame. He loves all things milkshake and all things chocolate so you can guess we are onto a winner here. Free from artificial flavourings, colouring and preservatives, this milkshake it Udderly delicious (see what I did there!).

Bear Alphabites - RRP £2.69

With no refined sugar, salt or added nonsense - (as they say), this box of alphabet cereal shapes are great for kids, and adults too. They use coconut blossom nectar to make they cereal sweet so you don't need to load on the sugar either.

Estrella Damm - RRP £4.00

My husband spotted this can of Spanish lager as soon as we opened the box. Estrella is marketed as "stylish, vibrant and passionate" - and I thought it was just beer! Nice to have cold from the fridge, watching the World Cup, or at a summer barbecue.

Lambrini Strawberry Flavour - RRP £3.29

It's been a long time since I drunk Lambrini but this strawberry flavoured version is light and fresh, and great to use as a base for cocktails. Why don't you add some pineapple juice, raspberry liquor and a squeeze of lemon to make a Strawberry Lambatini. Serve over ice and enjoy.

The total value for these products this month is over £18. With each box being £9.99 plus delivery you always get a bargain. If you like the idea of signing up with no obligation, enter the discount code NO8VE where it says promotional code on the Degustabox website for free delivery.

  1. I like surprises, but I don't like waste, so am not sure this would be for me.

    1. It may not be for everyone but it is good value.

  2. I subscribe too, and was really happy to get the vanilla grinder! Unfortunately we don't drink alcohol, so my Lambrini and lager will have to find another home, but the rest of the stuff is good as always :)

  3. I always worry that we will end up with things we dont use, but I like the idea in principle!

  5. I'm not sure I would use all of it but I do like the idea of a vanilla grinder!

  6. I like the idea of a box of surprises, but I'm sure everything wouldn't get used and I'd be confronted by ancient bits and pieces knocking around my cupboards for ages...

    1. Maybe you could get together with someone else and share the box?

  7. I would love opening the box to see what we had, but in reality I am too fussy x

  8. It looks a little too pot luck for me!

  9. Quite a variety of things there. I like it that it comes as a surprise and you can't choose what you want.

    1. Yes, you do not know what you are going to get every month.

  10. I do love the bargains you get in these boxes but at the same time, I kind of think it's only a bargain if you would have bought it in the first place. I'm in two minds and I've been thinking about this lately as I subscribe to a similar thing (glossy box) and I'm considering cancelling. x x

  11. They do look great but I don't think I'd subscribe. The only thing I would have bought would be the vanilla grinder x

  12. I still haven't drunk my Lambrini...ooops! I love Degustabox though - was buying them before I got sent some to review and will continue to buy afterwards

  13. This looks like a great idea and you received some great products. It doesn't look like something I would get though due to my food intolerances.
