Food Subscription Boxes | Degustabox September 2016

With the run up to Christmas, I’m being asked about unusual/different Christmas Gifts almost daily. Especially Subscription Boxes and Food Subscription Boxes.  They’re becoming more and more popular each year with subscription boxes available for Beauty, Food, Craft, Tea, Beer… almost anything you can think of. They make absolutely wonderful gifts as they’re gifts that keep on giving, way beyond Christmas.

Food Subscription Boxes Degustabox September 2016

Degustabox is one of my favourite monthly Food Subscription Boxes, they cost £12.99 per box, which is made cheaper if you subscribe. You can also use my discount code BLDEG15 to recieve a massive £7.00 discount meaning your first box would be just £5.99.

Each box contains up to 15 items of food/drink, including foods brand new to the market. You get to try some products even before they hit the shelves. I’m a massive foodie so I love the exclusivity the Degustabox Food Subscription Boxes give. I LOVE trying new products.

I’ve just received the September Box which as per usual, was jam packed with goodies. My favourite product was the Emily Fruit Crisps, I’ve been wanting to try these since spotting them in the September Sourced Box. Another one of my favourite Food Subscription Boxes. The Emily Crisps were in the Crunchy Banana Flavour and I thoroughly enjoyed them. A perfect desk snack that doesn’t make you feel guilty.

Another of my favourites were the Cape Drinks, Peach and Lychee and Pineapple and Passion Fruit. These contain no refined sugars and are full of vitamins and minerals.

I opened one of the Hartley’s No Added Sugar Jelly Pots almost immediately after taking the photos. The Strawberry flavour is my favourite out of the selection. They’re currently running a ‘Collect The Lids’ campaign to get a FREE Lunchbox after collecting a certain number of lids. Perfect for school packed lunches.

I’ve been having lots of salads for lunch at the moment so the Chia Seeds, Borlotti Beans and Say YES to NO Bread Chips have been great to keep in the cupboard. They all have a long shelf life, the Borlotti Beans don’t expire until 2019. I received the Sour Cream and Onion Bread Chips and these are gorgeous dipped into Hummus or Philadelphia. It’s making my mouth water just thinking about it.

Other items included in this September’s Degustabox were a Mrs. Crimbles Gluten Free ‘Pasta ‘n’ Sauce’ Sachet, Metcalfe’s Popcorn Thins and a Get Fruity Bar in Pineapple, Coconut and Lime and Teisseire Sirop in Raspberry and Cranberry.

Do you get the Degustabox? Would you recommend any other Food Subscription Boxes?

Until next time,

      They’re such good boxes. I love getting the Degustabox each month. I’ve not had much I don’t enjoy, except for Olives once!

    This looks great! I have seen lots of beauty subscription boxes, but this one would appeal to my whole family – great post!

    I have never tried a subscription food box. I would love to give this a try!

    Sounds like a great monthly subscription. Especially for someone greedy like me. I love food. I am the ultimate foodie. LMAO! Not sure I would give this as a Christmas gift though, I Like to be more personal than that because I know my people. Nobody would be interested in a box of food of my choosing. But, sounds interesting.

    I have never heard of subscription boxes and am not too sure if they are done in South Africa. This is such a great selection and I love trying new things especially when it arrives in a surprise parcel. What fun!

    I love a good sub box and I have heard that the Degustabox is smashing. Will have to try it out one day!

    Subscription Boxes have become quite popular nowadays. I have heard of this brand and I am glad I came across your review.

    They included some amazing surprises in this one. I think I’d have a lot of fun trying the snacks.

    Try Meisterdish! They’re pretty awesome, and super fresh produce!

    15 snacks? I am sold! I wish this was available where I am. I love that the snacks are healthy as well, it’s perfect for people who are trying to lay off the oily snacks and carbs. It’s definitely worth subscribing to!

    I haven’t jumped on the subscription box craze yet, and I never really heard of food ones before. I’ll have to keep this in mind.

    I have been toying with the idea of trying a food box for a long time now, just holding back because I don’t like food surprises haha, I hope you loved everything in your box, looks good!

    Life is so much easier with subscription boxes, isn’t it? That surely looks like an interesting spread of things to nibble on.

    I wish Norway would get more subscription boxes. But it isn’t something that is a big thing here! Hopefully soon though!

    Awesome set of healthy snacks! Those are really great and it’s nice to have a box of snacks come in every month that aren’t too sweet or salty!

    I tried one food subscription but I ended up not cooking them. I cook when I have mood for it so I don’t think they work for me

    What a great box full of tasty goodies. Loving healthy snacks 🙂

    This has become quite famous in South Africa.I love this idea a lot 🙂

    Really cool! This is a great way to discover new things!

    I am a foodie, and love those boxes, every month as well. We used to own a restaurant in Germany (long story), so trying out new things, and being food-adventurous is a family hobby – thanks for reminding me to loo for some more boxes to get, lol.
