Degustabox: September Box (With Exclusive £6 Off Discount Code)


Degustabox September Box 2015

It's that time of the month again where I share my thoughts on this month's Degustabox. As with every Degustabox review that I do, I have a fantastic and exclusive discount code for you to use to take a massive £6 off (in previous months it had been £3 off) the £12.99 price tag. All you have to do is enter the code BLDEG15 when you register. 

So what exactly does the September box comprise of, well let's see;

As with every Degustabox, that I have had the pleasure of trying and reviewing, there truly is something for everyone (especially as me and my family share the contents). And on top of that, we've discovered some great new products, ones that we will surely be repurchasing from now on.

For us the biggest hits of the September Box came from The Good Cider. Both were incredibly tasty and the quality was unlike any other that we've tried in the past. When it comes to our cider buying habits we tend to always opt for our fail-safe brand, which just so happens to be Kopparberg but we'll definitely now be picking up our ciders from The Good Cider. And the inclusion of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups was welcomed with open arms, as were the other sweet treats. The Mallow And Marsh Marshmallows and the Red N' Black Wine Gums from Maynards were both brilliant and disappeared from the box almost instantaneously, as did the Jelly Babies Berry Mix. But that Berry Mix of Jelly Babies brings me onto something slightly disheartening about September's box.

Much like last month's box (review here), we have product repetition once again. Both the Kent's Kitchen Posh Noodles and the Bassetts Jelly Babies Berry Mix appeared in the March box (review here), which was certainly a little disappointing. I was hoping that it was a bit of a blip that last month there were product repeats but it looks as though this might be becoming a monthly thing (I can only hope not). What has impressed me the most thus far about Degustabox is the fact that not only do you get a great range of products for your money but that you also get to try brand new products, exclusives and things that you would never have picked up yourself whilst out shopping. Products appearing more than once in subsequent boxes kind of detracts from all that for me.

So what do you think of this month's box? Have you tried any of the products featured in September's box before?

  1. I've always been tempted by these boxes as they look like they always provide some really tasty but quite different treats. I think I would be slightly concerned about the product repetition though because you do want to try new things really.

    Great post by the way!

    1. I would definitely recommend them Sarah as the only minor issue I've had or found is the product repetition of four products over the past two boxes but apart from that they are fantastic! :) Plus with my £6 off discount code it's such a bargain!!

  2. I agree, getting the same things twice is definitely not ideal! But this looks like a great box, especially with Halloween coming up!

    1. I know exactly what you mean Pam! :) I do wish that I had rationed the peanut butter cups for nearer Halloween but that's just more of an excuse to treat myself to a few more! ;) Hehe.

  3. Ah getting the same thing twice isn't exactly fair BUT reese's pieces are my favourite thing ever so I don't think I'd have minded. I think this box is such a great way to try new things too! xx
