REVIEW: Degustabox - a box full of edible goodies each month!

Recently I have become quite obsessed with the wide range of monthly subscription services available - to me they feel like a present to myself, even if I'm the one who has paid for it in the first place. As you don't know what's going to be turning up in the box, it's so exciting when you get the text/email saying your parcel will be delivered that day! In fact I wrote a blog post back in December about the range of non-beauty related subscription boxes available, which you can read here.

Degustabox combines the monthly subscription service with food - two of my favourite things at the moment. You enjoy between 9-14 surprise products, many of which are completely new to the market and the value of the products is always more than you pay per month. All you have to do is sign up for only £12.99 a month (inc. delivery), wait patiently for the email/text to say your parcel will be delivered that day, receive the delivery, open up the box and explore the contents. I also like the fact that there is no commitment, a downfall of many subscription services, so once you've signed up you can cancel at any time. This means its perfect to try out, if you like it then keep it going and if you don't find it's for you, you can easily cancel. Although with Degustabox I would struggle to find a reason to cancel!

January 2015 Degustabox* contained:

Alfa One Rice Oil (£2) -
An oil that is nutritionally well balanced and high in natural antioxidants, such as vitamin E and Gamma Oryzanol (which has been shown to reduce cholesterol absorption). It's a super healthy cooking oil and is so versatile!

Koko Dairy Free Original (£1.39) -
I have heard so much about this product and seen many bloggers rave about it! It's a unique alternative to cow's milk made with freshly pressed coconut milk. It contains fewer calories than skimmed milk (bonus!), 0% cholesterol (double bonus!) and is 100% allergen free (triple bonus!).

Kabuto Noodles (£2) -
these are a delicious combination of authentic Asian flavours and quality ingredients. This is a tasty 'on the go' product, full of flavour and there's no risk of any leftovers.

Sukrin Bread Mix (£5) -
Sukrin is a low carbohydrate, versatile and Free-From Sunflower and Pumpkin Seed Bread Mix - delicious! This product doesn't have to be used to make a typical loaf of bread, you can also use it to make tortilla wraps, pizza bases, burger buns etc.

Finn Crisp (£1.20) -
I go through phases of being a complete cracker addict. These are crunchy crispbreads, made from wholegrain so they are high in fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are baked sourdough, resulting in them having that distinct tangy flavour as well as being low in fat. Perfect for anyone who has made a New Years Resolution to be healthier!

Simplee Aloe (£1.79) -
A natural, never from concentrate drink that I had never tried or seen before! The aloe vera is blended with grape juice and a squeeze of lemon to create a tasty, refreshing drink.

2x Little Miracles (£1.49 each) -
Another interesting drink - a blend of organic tea, juice and ginseng, then sweetened with agave and all for less than 90 calories a bottle. They aren't fizzy, which is a big bonus for me as I can't drink much fizz since being pregnant.

2x Mornflake (£1.50) -
I am such a sucker for convenience these days, I'd much rather catch a couple more minutes in bed than spend ages making a gourmet breakfast. This is where Mornflake steps in, with their new version of porridge pots. These come with a little sachet of either nutella or golden syrup - breakfast heaven!

Haywards Piccalilli (£1.89) -
Personally I'm not such a fan of piccalilli but that doesn't mean this product went to waste, Tom's grandparents love it and were so happy when we dropped this jar round! Piccalilli is chunky vegetables in a tangy mustard sauce, often eaten in sandwiches, burgers and at BBQ's.

Clipper Green Tea with Lemon -
There was a special gift included in the January box, a generous sample pack of Clipper Fairtrade Green Tea. The benefits of green tea are endless and it is very good for detoxing your body. I've also read that cold green tea makes a great addition to your skincare routine too!

The focus of this box was being healthy, as it has been the start of a new year! I also have a £3 off discount code for when you sign up - ZJXE0 <the last digit it a zero - so why not go and check their website out now?

What kind of products would you like to see in a Degustabox?
