Degustabox describe themselves as a monthly surprise food box - 17 new, special or innovative food products from well-known brands. The no-commitment subscription costs £9.99 a month (without delivery) but promises that this cost will be half the retail value of the products you receive. You can also buy gift subscriptions for as little as £8.49 a month for an annual subscription.
When I was asked if I'd like to receive their launch box I was expecting something similar to the gourmet food boxes like Flavrbox (£20 with shipping) or Flavourly (£15 with shipping). These typically offer between 5-10 products a month, usually artisan or gourmet foods.
When I opened the boxes, I could see that this was very different. For a start there was an awful lot of food (and drink) in there and it was really quite a large box. There was also some recipe cards that go with the ingredients.
I would definitely buy Degustabox again and I'm really looking forward to seeing what appears in the later boxes. If you want to sign up you can get £3 off a box with the code rosieoutlook999. I think the subscriptions would also make great Christmas presents - I love giving subscriptions as presents as they keep on 'giving' long after Christmas is over.
