Degustabox offer a surprise box of food and treats worth over £20 for just £12.99. They sent me a box to review. Each box will have a different selection every month. This was the April box.
I was intrigued – I am always looking for food at lower cost. And it is good to be introduced to new foods – we all know how we can get stuck in our shopping habits!
The box contained some lovely tasty items and some treats but also some things I would never buy. This can be good – or not- depending on your point of view. Some sweet treats are always welcome – but not always what I should be having. But, hey, it is only once a month so it could be a case of being a little of what you fancy.
Here is my summary of the April box….
The Things I really Liked
As a lover of tea I am always open to trying a new brand – especially of good quality tea. Normally £1.75
Canned tomaotes – a staple of my cooking and tomatoe puree. Lovely! Normally a total of £2.89
Kingfisher beer to me is the perfect accompaniment to Indian food. Normally £2.00 (You can ask for an alcohol free pack)
Things I Like
These are items that I liked but would not normally buy – but was quite pleased to try
There were 2 bags of Kinder chocolates – Choco-Bons and Chocolate with Cereals. Now I like sweet things so is rather lovely to have a sweet treat like this
Nandos Peri-Peri Crisps
These were good as a treat and may be handy for your lunch boxes or as a snack
Schwartz Curry Seasoning
These will be nice to use to make a curry easily but I usually buy individual spices and get the right taste from those
Veetee Microwaveable Rice
A handy and quick meal for one sometime when you can’t be bothered to cook
Of course I love a cookie – but usually bake my own – that way I don’t have them more often than I should!
Things I Will Discard
There were 3 energy drinks in the pack. Since fizzy drinks are sugary and not good for you, I personally never drink them.
If you like treats and easy to cook items to have handy in your cupboards, this is very good value – and will give you a delightful surprise every month!
