Review | Degustabox May 2014

 We all know about beauty subscription boxes but have you ever heard of a food one? Imagine getting a delivery of food treats at your door every month. Basically heaven right? Degustabox is a monthly subscription service that costs £12.99 per box including delivery. Food is basically the love of my life (minus Disney and Hazza Styles) so the idea of getting a box filled with things to eat and drink basically made me very excited.

I was kindly sent the May Degustabox, which arrived by courier. The delivery service was great, I was sent an email to confirm when it would arrive and then a text on the day with the hour time slot it would arrive. Everything was packaged safely but not excessively. It was like Christmas diving into that box!
I've already made my way through most of the box and have really enjoyed trying out some new things.

The first thing I pulled out was the Cawston Press Cloudy Apple, it was so tasty! It's blended apples with added fizz without anything artificial. It's not too sweet and tasted so good. I'll definitely be buying this again.
Next are two bottles of Hornsby's Cider, I really liked the Strawberry and Lime flavour but am not keen on pear so will be giving this away. It's refreshing drink and perfect for BBQ's but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to buy it.

The Garofalo pasta was well appreciated as I eat pasta all the time, having a new brand to try is very exciting (yep I love food that much) and I'm sure I will love it.
To go with the pasta was a Tomato Puree and a Passata sauce, these are cupboard essentials in our kitchen anyway and will probably be used in some sort of pasta dish!

I'm not a granola fan but my Nan loved this 'On The Go' pouch by Lizi's Granola. She took it to work with her for lunch and really liked it, it's a handy thing to keep in your desk if you like that sort of thing.
I love the Elizabeth Shaw Dark Chocolate Crunch Sticks, they are perfect for satisfying a sugar or chocolate craving and because of the dark cocoa you only need a couple before you feel like you've had enough. Amazing for someone like me who can eat stupid amounts of chocolate in one go!
The Kettle Lightly Salted Sweet Potato crisps are new and will be something I buy forever. I loved them, they are healthier than usual crisps and baked instead of fried so I don't feel as guilty when eating them. I love the flavour and will be using the £1 off voucher that came in the box to buy another bag asap!

I tried out the RAW Chewing Gum which claims to boost energy but personally didn't like the flavour of but it found it's way into my Nan's handbag quite easily.
The Dr Oetker Cake Release Spray seems like a great idea and will be made use of the next time I fancy baking.
The last thing in the box was a box of Taylors of Harrogate Blackberry and Elderflower tea, I'm not a tea drinker but my Dad took this off my hands happily and loves it.

Overall I am really impressed with the contents of the May Degustabox, everything has been or will be enjoyed by someone and I've found a few new things that I will be repurchasing again and again!
This months box works out as much more than the subscription cost of £12.99.
You can save £3 off your first box with the code 1ITN6!
