January Degustabox - Review




It's the third week of the month, this means it's time for our monthly Degustabox review! We've been reviewing them for quite a while now and even after all this time we are so excited when we see the delivery man bringing it to our door. We've never had a disappointing box, every single one of them has been a delight. I'd be more than happy with the subscription if I was a paying customer.

January is known for new years resolutions, people trying to diet, lose weight, become healthier and more active. I think that Degustabox tried to run with this theme this month as a lot of their items were healthy treats.

As you can see see there was a lot of healthy options in January's box, which is just what we need for the new year. I liked how there was so much variety in items from fruit squash and breakfast bars through to noodles and tuna. There was something for everyone and something for every occasion whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack. 

Nick really enjoyed both the two Pulsin products as they were something he'd not tried before, he said he'd buy both again. Noah loved the Juicy Red Berry Frusli Bars, they were great to eat in the morning with a slice of toast, some fruit and a yogurt. They are also ideal for a mid morning snack as they are full of wholegrain oats which will keep you satisfied and full of energy. I was a big fan of the Wild Planet Albacore tuna steaks. The company is ranked #1 in the US by Greenpeace for their sustainability and the Tuna are pole and line caught only. At £3.49 per can it's the best tinned tuna you'll ever have, it's worth every penny!


So many items could have made our star product this month but I put it down to a vote (out of three) and the Hershey's Cookies 'n' Creme Snack Pack won! Having family who live in America we are no stranger when it comes to American snacks and foods. I was a fan of the snack pack because the little chocolate bars are the perfect size for an after nursery treat for Noah and small enough for me to enjoy without feeling guilty!

Degustabox costs £12.99 per month but if you would like to try it for the first time use the code: CTOMW at the checkout to receive a huge £7.00 off! That means you can get your first box for just £5.99!

What products or brands would you like to see in Degustabox next?

  1. I would like to see porridge, I do like porridge in the winter months, as it is so warming and filling. Cereals, breakfast is an important meal, it can be good to have variety :- particularly for Spring and Summertime. Snacks, healthy snacks.

  7. LighterLife Shakes, seem like a good product or you to get to sample, given that you are still aiming to loose some weight. Maybe you'll find come Springtime that you loose that last bit of weight, and reach your target weight. As often with the milder weather it can allow for and encourage exercise. Best Wishes!

  8. Microwaveable long grain rice dishes are what I'd like to find in Degustabox :- As filling, and very convenient. Variety of flavours, vegetables included, etc would be appreciated.

  11. Love the idea of goods, samples, etc being delivered to my home. As nice to find out, and try out new products. Also this time of year, can often mainly be indoors :- Due to the Winter weather. A nice treat would be nice.

  12. Wondering what will be in February's Degustabox :- Given the time of year, some soup, fruit, fruit drinks, porridge, etc would be nice warming, filling, satisfying, nutritious foodstuffs. Likely to be welcomed, and valued.
