You may think I’m deceiving you with the title, ‘The February box, but it’s March?’ but my Degustabox came towards the end of the month, in February, and then my birthday happened so I had some relaxy days (Shush, that is a word!) and, so, it’s now March.
But this box is well worth seeing, it’s one of my favourites, so far! For a quick re-cap; Degustabox is like any other subscription service in that you pay a monthly fee and get an exciting box of goodies delivered to your door. The boxes are £12.99, including postage, which, personally, feels like a good price. If you do decide to sign up you can get £3 off, here: https://www.degustabox.com/en/
For me, a lot of the excitement for sub boxes is in the surprise, so if you do sign up you can look forward to the surprise of what the March box will bring – Hopefully it’ll be as good as the February box.
The second drink item is one I tried the day the box came because I couldn’t stop imagining what the combination would taste like. The Laimon Fresh sparkling drink is lemon, lime and mint flavour, that’s right Mint! I was picturing the taste you get when you drink orange juice too soon after brushing your teeth, when I imagined it, so I wanted to put that thought to rest. The moment I smelled this I was wowed, and then I tasted it. Not a whiff of toothpaste, the mint in this is proper, natural mint and it tastes SO good. I sipped this slowly throughout the day because I wanted to make it last, Azii tried it too and he was amazed. I Love this drink – A bottle of this is £1.99 so it’s a special treat but it’s definitely special.
It’s definitely a nutty box, for February, the next item is Whole Earth ‘Three Nut Butter’. This is another item I was pleased to see as we’ve just been trying some of Whole Earth’s other products; my Mum bought their crunchy and smooth peanut butter and both of them are absolutely delicious, hands down the best peanut butters I’ve tried. Because we have a lot of peanut butter open, I’ve not opened this Three Nut Butter yet but I’m really excited to try it – It’s a mix of cashews, peanuts and hazelnuts, I am imagining good things! This jar is £3.
The Jack Link’s ‘Beef Snack’ is something I’ve not tried, yet, but I will do. I’m rather intrigued by it as it’s suggested as a healthy snack and… well it’s beef. It’s definitely got the interesting factor going for it! These bars cost £1.39.
We’ve eaten most of the American Muffin Company muffins, they were good. Ethan, Azii, my best mate and I all tried one and we did enjoy them, which I was really pleased with. Knowing that they’re gluten and wheat free I was interested to see if we’d find them lacking in some way but they weren’t at all – They were light and fluffy and very tasty. The box of these is £2.50.
Lastly, for the February box, we have two Beet It bars. These flapjack bars with beetroot are supposed to be great for those who wants a boost, for sports, they contain a lot of nitrates which are supposed to lower blood pressure and improve sports performance. This isn’t something I’ve ever tried, before, and not being someone who does sports, I’ve not tried these yet. I will, for the sake of not wanting to waste things, though, I’ll just have to wait for a day where I have to do more than the norm, haha. These are £1.85 each.
The box, for February, is worth over £22 which is pretty good considering the cost of it. I like these boxes because, value aside, they give you the chance to try things you may not have done otherwise, they give you a nice mix of snacks, drinks and cupboard items and it’s a lovely way to supplement a month’s food intake.
This box was sent to me for my consideration for review purposes – All opinions are honest, and are my own
