The January Degustabox (With Exclusive £6 Off Discount Code)


Degustabox January 2016

I can't quite believe how quickly the month of February has flown by and that's partly why this month's Degustabox review is coming to you on the last day of the month.

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 January box comprise of, well let's see;


Degustabox Chinese New Year Box

Despite this box being called the January Degustabox, it's meant to be enjoyed in the following month as most of the time the box is delivered in the last week or so of said month. And I can completely see why certain products have been enclosed in this particular box. With Chinese New Year falling on the 8th of February this year, there were plenty of products to help celebrate. I'm a big fan of Chinese cuisine so I was certainly happy to see the two Amoy Taste Of Asia cooking sauces, both of which were absolutely brilliant. I was also over the moon to see the Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks in this months box as I had heard nothing but good things about them. As I always say, the Degustabox is such a great way to try out new brands and products, ones that you might not have necessarily picked up on your weekly shop, all for just £12.99 (or £6.99 if you use my discount code). The rice sticks are so scrumptious and make for a great snack, especially if you're watching your calorie intake.

My Dad definitely enjoyed the Tsingtao beer and my brother, who again as I mention quite often in these Degustabox posts, is the healthiest of the four of us was already a fan of the Slim Noodles, so these were a welcome addition.

Degustabox Food Box Subscription Review

The rest of the January Degustabox definitely has more of a breakfast/healthy snacking feel to it for me. They're basically the kind of products that you're glad to have in your cupboard. I loved the Coldpress apple juice and the Jordan's Fruit & Nut Country Crisp get your day off to a great start. The Clarks Carob Fruit Syrup is a really interesting product. It's even suitable for vegans, vegetarians and diabetics. We also really enjoyed the Fruit Bowl Blackcurrant Flakes and surprisingly or maybe not so surprisingly, the Conscious Organic Raw Chocolate. It certainly didn't taste as I expected it would but it was really nice nonetheless.

The only letdown for me was the fact that a box of Finn Crisp appeared in this month's box. This exact box was included in last January's box and whilst I don't mind brand repetition too much, especially if they've launched a new product, flavour or range, seeing the exact same one appear was a little disappointing. But I guess one repetition a year down the line isn't the end of the world.

So what do you think of this month's box? Have you tried any of the products featured in January's box before? If so, what do you think of them?

  1. I loved the Country Crisp cereal, apple juice and sauces but I found the chocolate a bit too bitter.
