Degustabox ~ August Box Impressions

Hi there and welcome to my August review of my favourite and only foodie box ‘DegustaboxUK’. Unless you are new to this these parts. You will know I subscribe to this foodie box which I receive every month-end roughly the 28th or there abouts. To subscribe it is easy and its very affordable and the charge £12.99 which included the delivery charge and what you get is worth more than the price of the subscription so I think this is a win in my book. Last month’s box I got a lot of items that required me to be in the kitchen to use them, I am not complaining just saying how it is and most of you know I hardly cook where I live (psst! am moving so cooking will commence – more on this later). So though I loved the content of the July box I hardly used it plus there was an issue with the first box – the delivery company didn’t handle the boxes well so my bottles came broken and everything was soaking wet. I did contact Degusta who quickly arranged for a new box with everything re-sent to me within 2 days I was very impressed and happy to say this month’s box everything has come as it should. Anyway onto the contents;

Mexican Dave’s tortilla chips
I am not a tortilla chips person but boy do I love these, they taste great and they are very very affordable (£1 only). They are available in Tesco from the 25th August, for me why I love these so much is they have no MSG or anything artificial plus they were cooked in sunflower oil. These get a recommendation from me.

Berry White organic drinks
These drinks are really delicious and it does what it says on the bottle, I got the berries/peaches and it is absolutely delicious. The Berry White drinks come in different flavors and can be purchased from Waitrose or online at Ocado for £1.59 each and I think this is really reasonable. I happily recommend this drink to all.
Schwartz
I do not know if I have ever used flavor shots before (does chicken/beef stock cubes count?), these flavor shots look really interesting and cannot wait to try them out. They are priced at £1.39 for 2, isn’t that just fantastic? I mean what more can you ask for? They come in 8 different flavors, and can be bought at any UK leading supermarket. I got Mexican fajitas and Spanish smoked paprika chicken, these too I am recommending to all.
Caribbean Twist
Ok I have a confession to make I LOVE COCKTAILS Hahaha, my friends and I are familiar with this little baby and similar ones when we were at university a few moons ago. I am yet to try this out but since I am going out next week to celebrate my friend’s birthday in London so will take this so thanks Degusta it came at the right time. The price is reasonable (£2.50) since in clubs they charge anything from £5 upwards for a decent cocktail I think I am happy to buy this myself. I do not have to recommend because it’s a no-brainer that this will be drunk and enjoyed.

LINDT
Another confession I LOVE LINDT CHOCOLATE, actually all chocolate (excluding dark chocolate) and when I saw this I shed a beautiful happiness tear. Firstly I love the packaging for me it really helps when buying something from chocolate to makeup. Y’all know Lindt is quality and pricey but that’s ok because this good chocolate is £3.49 which I think isn’t too bad. This comes highly recommended.
Cawston Press
What I love about Degusta is that there is always something for everyone in the family, this kids drink is super cute and I drunk it quickly and happily like a kid (don’t judge). I got the Apple & Pear flavor and I love 100%, the price is more than ok its £1.89 for 3 of these. Best part is there is no added sugar to them or any artificial anything.
Brioche Pasquier – 8 pains au lait
Well what can I say, firstly I was super surprised to find this product in the box then I was super happy because that meant I didn’t have to go buy any rolls – Degusta great timing and saving me money. They are so soft and so yummy it hurts, they are so moist and just yummy. They are priced at £1.69 which I do not think is actually bad even for frugal me.
Brioche Pasquier – 6 pains au chocolate
This is similar to the above but it contains chocolate and it just as tasteful but 10 pence pricey (£1.79).
Dr.Oetker
I finally got the edible wafer cases – when I was a kid I was always annoyed that I lost some of the cupcake to the cover and wondered why no one thought of making cases that I can eat (don’t judge). I am so happy and since my little since has got the baking bug I am taking this home with me this weekend so we can use them.

In this month’s box I got an extra coupon (£3) which I can use to purchase a 4 pack of Bircher Muesli (MOMA), I am well pleased and cant not wait to run to Sainsbury’s and grab me these wonderful yoghurts. I will say with 100% confidence that I am very pleased with this Month’s box and I have enjoyed it more than any other box have received since I subscribed.
