If you know me at all you will know about my love of subscription boxes. From food subscription boxes through to pregnancy boxes I have tried and tested many. Some of which are fantastic and simply genius while others are a great idea in theory but just do not work.
Today I would like to introduce you to a relatively new subscription box called MicroBarBox.
As you can probably guess from the name MicroBarBox is a minibar in a box! It’s a monthly indulgence to either yourself or another. It’s full of boozy tipples and edible treats, wrapped up beautifully and a surprise each time. They describe it as “that Friday feeling in a box" and I am here to let you know what we thought.
So let's take a look inside the May box that we were sent for the purpose of this review. I was so excited at this point as we decides to open it on a Friday night as a treat!
On opening there was a variety of alcoholic miniatures, mixers, snacks and a recipe card (which was double sided with ideas!) I thought this card was such a fantastic idea because I wouldn't of known what to mix with what and I wouldn't of thought to been that adventurous either!
I was very happy with the variety of drink and snacks, there was something for both Nick and I to enjoy. We decided on making the Rhubarb Collins which was incredible and didn't taste like an alcoholic beverage at all and Nick improvised with the gin and made his own creation.
What we thought.
We loved the concept behind MicroBarBox as it's not just a good idea in theory but one that works too. It certainly is that Friday feeling in a box!
I like how you can subscribe to different types of boxes over a period of time that suits you. You can buy one single box as a one off or sign up to multiple. This freedom is something I think all subscription boxes should offer.
They sell giftcards! I will keep in mind for the future as I think it would make a rather unique gift for birthday's and Christmas and a rather fun one at that.
The first box is just £14 and I think the service is good value for money.
What do you think of MicroBarBox? Is it something that you would enjoy? If you want to try it out for yourself use the code "CGD1STBOX12" at the checkout to receive your first box for just £12. Cheers!
