My First Degustabox Experience (With Exclusive Discount Code)

My First Degustabox Experience (The August Degustabox) Review

When I was given the incredible opportunity to try out this month's Degustabox, I didn't need to think twice about saying yes. A box filled with fantastic food offerings, delivered straight to my door; I was already sold. Unlike the frankly disappointing beauty boxes that I've signed up for (and then quickly cancelled) in the past, the Degustabox is a whole different story and takes subscription boxes to another level.

When this surprise box of goodies arrived on my doorstep it felt like Christmas morning, even though it was early September. Not only was the box beautifully packaged but the surprise element leaves you in eager anticipation. And I was certainly not disappointed.

The premise is simple; sign up for only £12.99 a month (including delivery), which you are free to cancel at any point and receive a surprise Degustabox delivered to your door each month. This surprise box will comprise of nine to fourteen products, many of which are completely brand new to the market, all of which add up to more than the £12.99 monthly subscription fee. If you subscribe before the 20th of the month then you will receive your box by the end of that same month and if you subscribe on or after the 21st, it will arrive with you by the 8th of the following month. The delivery experience was absolutely effortless with Degustabox. Your box is delivered to you via courier and you also receive aemail and a text message to let you know when to expect your Degustabox. To find out more and to get a feel for the products and brands that you might find in your first Degustabox, check out the Degustabox website (link here).

And I also have an exclusive discount code to share with you. If you like the look of what you see in this post and feel like signing up for your own Degustabox, then all you have to do is enter the code EllisTuesdays to receive £3 off when you register.

So here's what I received in my August Degustabox:

Now how incredible is the variety of products included in the August Degustabox? Me and my family have already made a start on devouring the entirety of this box. And that's what's really great about about the selection of products that you can expect to find in your monthly Degustabox; there truly is something for everyone. I've already got my eye on the ingenious Dr. Oetker Edible Cupcake Cases (Great British Bake Off eat your heart out). My Mum can't wait to create some tasty dishes with the Schwartz Flavour Shots. My Dad has tried the scrumptious Fever Tree Ginger Beer, which he has given his discerning seal of approval (hehe) and my brother (who is the most health conscious out of the four of us) has the Berry White and Cawston Press drinks ready to put to the test. We've also planned a few family moments based around the August Degustabox. A breakfast complete with Brioche Pasquier pastries, as well as a family movie night (any suggestions on a movie we will all enjoy?) complete with Mexican Dave's Tortilla Chips, sharing a glass (or two) of Strawberry Daiquiri's with my Mum and of course what's a movie night without chocolates, specifically the wonderful Lindt Hello chocolates (I've already eaten a few and had to stop myself from eating the entire tin in one sitting! Hehe).

I'm particularly excited to see what the December Degustabox has to offer. Yes, I'm already counting down the days until Christmas and I'm hoping for lots of festive treats Degustabox wise. Just think what an amazing gift a Degustabox subscription would be for a special someone in your life (if you're already trying to come up with Christmas gifting ideas, like I am).

So what do you think of the Degustabox idea? Would you sign up for a monthly food subscription box? And what is your favourite product from this particular box?
