Degustabox Unboxing

Subscription Boxes / Degustabox Unboxing
It’s time for A Break from Books post! I have been addicted to subscription boxes over the past few months and I’ll be unboxing three on Pretty Books. If there’s anything I love more than books, it’s food. So when I saw an offer to try out Degustabox – a monthly surprise food box – I had to give it a shot. Here’s what I got in my first (October) box.

I arrived home from work to discover a giant box of food. I opened it straight away and was delighted to see that it contained so many products I hadn’t tried before. Degustabox aim to send monthly food brands that you may not have discovered yet, so it’s unlikely that you’ll get something that’s already in your cupboards. If I had one teeny bit of negative feedback, it’d be that I’d much prefer a box of sweet treats – I always choose sweet over savoury!

Even so, I do enjoy savoury snacks too and I’ve been tucking into the crisps and energy bars. I’ve tried the Sour Cream & Onion Chipstrips, which are a little like long, thin Pringles! I have colleagues who prefer savoury, so I’ll share the other packs with them.

I love that they include ingredients to make meals. I’m looking forward to making my own Chicken Korma with papadums to dip into the Lime & Chilli Chutney. I’ve also used the chopped tomatoes to make a leek and bean stew for work lunches, and I’ll use the passata to make my own pasta sauce.

One of the foods I was excited to try were the Salted Caramel Marshmallows from The Naked Marshmallow Co.  I nibbled on one while waiting for some milk to boil for hot chocolate, and then dunked the rest of the marshmallow into my mug. It was delicious.

  1. This sounds so cool!!!

  2. I love the concept of those boxes but never actually tried one. In France they are a big thing and there is a box for anything you wish now but in the uk, I find the choice more limited. I didn’t know this box but know some of the products inside. Although I don’t know those marshmallow and will look for them 😉 Do you think in the end it worth the price?

    • Yes we don’t have many options at all. Graze is the most popular food box but it is quite different to this. I do think it’s worth it. I got to try new food and it’s so easy to spend £12.99 in a supermarket. More sweet treats and it’d be perfect!

  3. I like the snacks part of this but the passata is just what we buy normally so I’m wondering if we’re already buying the non-mainstream stuff! We’ve done veg boxes a fair bit and it’s good to make you eat things you wouldn’t normally buy. I might do the trial of this as it’s pretty cheap!

    • I’d definitely say it’s worth giving a shot as you can’t buy *that* much for £6.95 normally! I’m still working my way through the box. Passata is pretty new to me!

  4. […] time for another A Break from Books post! I’ve unboxed my Degustabox and Illumicrate and this time I’ll be chatting about […]
