Degustabox Review: Surprise Foodie Box & discount code

Another packed Degustabox arrived and for a foodie fan like me opening up this box of surprise groceries will always be a real treat and something I look forward to every month. As always Degustabox have provided a discount code for my readers:

Discount Code - 8TL75

Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out a range of specially selected foodie products. There's always a great mix of new products that I haven't tried before, as well as plenty of treats from more established brands. Each Degustabox costs £12.99, delivery costs are included in the price, and there is no fixed contract involved - you can cancel at any time. 

The discount code gives you £5 off your first box, making it only £7.99 delivered! Check out the Degustabox website below and enter the new discount code: 8TL75 

Here's a quick round up of all the products I received in the latest Degustabox:

Explore Cuisine Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine: It's nice to see a few 'healthier' products included in the January Degustabox. The Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine combines plant based protein and fibre with the lowest level of carbohydrates. The flavour is great too and works perfectly with a fresh homemade tomato sauce.

Miso Tasty Spicy Ramen Noodle Kit: My eldest son always calls first dibs on any noodle products that are included in the Degustabox. This one has a lightly spicy flavour and was easy to make for a quick lunch. It comes with a miso soup base plus a seaweed garnish.

Pulsin: I was highly impressed with the Pulsin Fruity Oat Bar in a previous Degustabox - (see Degustabox October Review) so I was pleased to find a couple more products to try this month. These are both from the Pulsin protein range - a Complete Protein Powder Natural Vanilla Flavour and a Vanilla Choc Chic Protein Booster. I gave these both to my husband to try after one of his runs and he enjoyed them both but especially the protein powder. The Vanilla Choc Chip Protein Booster bar is quite small in size but it's a very dense and filling bar with a fudgey and slightly gritty texture.

Latin American Kitchen: Two useful products from the Santa Maria Latin American Kitchen range - a Chipotle Mayo Topping and a Columbian Crunchy Chick Bites Coating. These are both great! I had lots of fun making some delicious wraps with my kids during half term and they both loved them especially the crunchy chicken bites.

Jordans Frusli Juicy Red Berries: Two cereal bars made with wholegrain oats and lots of cranberries and raisins. These bars have a sweet berry flavour and lightly chewy texture. I much prefer them to heavier nuts and seeds type bars.

LighterLife Fast Ready to Drink Shakes: Two shakes from the LighterLife range that is exclusively available at Superdrug - a Vanilla Velvet and a Strawberry Passion Flavour. These have been created for the 5:2 fast diet as a meal replacement.

Clipper Everyday Organic Tea: I'm quite fussy about my tea as I enjoy it very strong but luckily this tea had a lovely full bodied flavour. It's good to know too that this Clipper Everyday Organic is made with the highest quality natural ingredients and comes in unbleached teabags.

Hershey's Cookies n' Creme: I've never been a fan of Hershey's chocolate but my one big exception is the Cookies 'n' Creme bar which is just delicious.This super sweet and crunchy classic is now available in this pack of five individual mini bars.

Mallow & Marsh: I've reviewed this brand before and their Coconut Marshmallow Bar is one of my favourites (the Raspberry one is excellent too). It's simply a squidgey, coconutty delight.

Wild Planet Tuna: This brand is ranked #1 in the US by Greenpeace for sustainability as it's 100% pole & line caught. It's also canned without any water or oil added. The tuna itself is much paler in colour than the tinned tuna I'm used to and has a meatier and less 'fishy' flavour. It's without doubt the best tinned tuna I've tried and I'll definitely be looking out for this brand in the future.

Robinsons Fruit Cordial: A range of more sophisticated squashes (in glass bottles) from Robinsons. There are three flavours available but I was glad to receive the Raspberry, Rhubarb & Orange Blossom in my Degustabox. The combination of raspberry and rhubarb is really unusual but both flavours come through strongly and create a lovely grown up drink.

Overall I was pleased with the wide selection of different products in the January Degustabox - there were plenty of useful groceries for my family. This month, I was especially pleased with the Wild Planet Tuna, Robinsons Fruit Cordial and the Latin American Kitchen products. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this months Degustabox in the comments below.

  1. It's great to see the Pulsin stuff in the box! I'm really loving their recent branding refresh too. Hopefully I've got a Pulsin Mint Choc Chip bar coming in my Ocado delivery tomorrow. :D Speaking of... I'd love to start a campaign for a Mint Choc Mallow & Marsh bar. Whadda ya think? ;)
