Degusta Box Unboxing (January)

Hi everyone

I thought I would do an unboxing of my first ever Degusta Box which arrived in January.  The box cost me just £5.99 as I found and used a voucher code online.  The recommended retail price of all the items in this box was £20.96.  The chai latte was a free gift.

It comes well packaged in a recycle box and all items were in perfect condition including the glass jar and bottle.  When ordering I left a note asking for it to be left in the shed in the background as I knew the chances are that I would be at work.

Liquid wise the items that were included were a happy monkey smoothie, Koko dairy free coconut milk, a jar of Barilla Mediterranean vegetable pasta sauce and a bottle of Eisberg alcohol free wine.  

The smoothie was really tasty and I have since spotted them in supermarkets.  

I am a fan of good old fashioned cows milk normally, I did give almond milk a try once and did not like it at all.  I enjoyed the Koko milk a lot though, especially on porridge it made it extra creamy and I added chocolate chips and bam - it tasted like Bounty!

I very rarely drink and don't like wine but I am willing to give this alcohol free wine a try. 

The freeze dried fruit bits were yummy, however you don't get very many in a pack and I wouldn't pay £1.69 for them.  I love the Hip Pops, they were a bit like Snack-a-Jacks but I felt they had more flavour so I would purchase these again.

I really enjoyed The Fabulous Bakers Mango & Pineapple bars, they were filling and flavoursome and contained no nasties or added sugar.

The chai latte was something I have never tried before.  I frothed up half a cup of milk, added the chai powder and then topped up with hot water.  It's an acquired taste I think.  I found it very sweet but I did quite like it.

I have not tried the Betavivo crispy oat cereal as yet.

I wasn't too sure about the Complete Energy lemon bites as 1 bite contains the caffeine of 1 large premium coffee.  I don't drink coffee personally so that sounded like a rather large hit of caffeine that my body would not be used to.   However I thought that I would take them on holiday though as we plan to go walking and cycling so they may come in handy then.

I was pleased that the Barilla pasta was wholewheat as I don't normally buy white pasta.  It went lovely with the med veg sauce with i topped with come cheddar cheese and served with garlic bread.

I like the fact the box comes with leaflets detailing the items and what their recommended retail price and I would definitely order another Degusta box in the future.

Is anyone else a Degusta box fan? 

This is my own personal opinion and not sponsored in any way.

  1. Ooh lots of lovely bits in there! I've tried the 'nothing but' pepper snacks and also apple and fig - I preferred the sweeter ones and they were so light that I felt guilt free eating them. Thanks for sharing xx
