February Degustabox

For the last few months, I have been sent a monthly food subscription box from Degustabox. Which is basically a box filled with lots of surprise food and drink items delivered straight to my door each month. On Wednesday I received my February box.

 I love subscription boxes as you never know what you are going to get until you actually open your box. It is a great way to try out and discover new products that you may never have heard of or tried before. And there is no long sign up commitment either as you can cancel your subscription at any time as long as it is before the 10th of the month as you will be charged after this date as delivery is not long after that date.

So here is a look at what was inside my February Degustabox.
  • One jar of Whole Earth, three nut butter RRP £3.00. I have never heard of this product before, it is cashew nuts, hazelnuts and peanuts butter. It is made with natural ingredients and has no added sugar making it healthy and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

  • Two bars of Beet It, RRP £1.85 X 2. Again a product I had never even heard of, these are beetroot flapjacks. These are a sports energy bar, they not really something I would eat.

  • One box of Melba Thins, RRP £1.39. I actually buy Melba toasts as I love them with pate on and the children love them with cheese spread on.

  • Two packs of Schwartz Flavour Shots, RRP £1.40 each. I have seen these advertised but I have never actually bought them myself, they are flavour shots to create a meal I received a paella and a masala one. These will be great for creating quick and easy meals so I am looking forward to trying these out.

  • One pack of Lily O'Brien's cookie crunch, RRP £2.60. These are a pack of little crunchy chocolate biscuits pieces smoothed in chocolate and they are delicious. These were my favourite item in the box.

  • One box of American Muffin Company muffins, RRP £2.50. A box of six individually wrapped chocolate chip, wheat and gluten-free muffins.

  • One tub of Peanut Hottie, RRP £3.00. I have seen this before but never tried it, it is a peanut butter flavoured hot drink. My twelve-year-old daughter loves this and has been drinking it nonstop and has asked me to buy more of this.

  • One bottle of Laimon Fresh drink, RRP £1.99. Again a drink I had never heard of, this was a lemon, lime and mint flavour drink. My tween daughter loved this and drank the lot before I could even try it.

  • One bar of Jack Link's beef snack, RRP £1.39. I had never heard of this and it is not something that I would normally eat so I have let my other half have this.

So what did I think?

 As usual, there was some brands and products that I was familiar with but there were lots of brands and products that I had not tried before. I think the balance of meal ideas, snacks and drinks in this months box was just right. I was really impressed with this months box and I think that we will be taken out a subscription to keep getting these boxes in future.

The contents of this months box came to just over £22, so as always the contents are worth a lot more than the £12.99 that you actually pay for the box. Making them great value as the price you pay also includes postage and packaging. 

* Disclosure: I was sent a Degustabox free of charge for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions are my honest view of the product I received.
