Degustabox Subscription Box Review - December 2016 & $10 Off



Degustabox December Box


This is a review of a monthly subscription box called Degustabox. Your first box is $10 off, which is 50% off their monthly charge of $19.99. It includes ten to fifteen full sized surprise food products each month for less than their retail price. I decided to give it a try since it was 50% off. Each item in this box would cost me only $1.81 each normally, but with my discount they only cost $.90! So how could I pass that up! The retail value for this box is $46.71!  That's a really good value! They also offer points for reviewing the products you have received which you can use towards a free box. Included in my December box were the following products:
  1. Kala Beans - $3.99 retail value
  2. Wise - Popcorn, $3.39 retail value
  3. Nabisco - Good Thins, $3.69 retail value
  4. Pillsbury - Purely Simply Frosting Mix, $1.99 retail value
  5. Pillsbury - Purely Simply Cake & Cupcake Mix, $3.29 retail value
  6. Ricola - Herbal Immunity Honey Herb Supplement Lozenges, $13.99 retail value
  7. Nabisco - Chips Ahoy! Thins in Cinnamon Sugar, $3.79 retail value
  8. Loacker Gran Patisserie - Noir Orange, made in Italy, $3.05 retail value
  9. Loacker Gran Patisserie - Coconut, $3.05 retail value
  10. Smuckers - Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread in Grape, $3.49 retail value
  11. Urbane Grain - Three Minute Meal, $2.99 retail value
We tried the popcorn first. Hubby & I both enjoyed it, but I prefer a healthier brand. My current favorite is Lesser Evil Budda Bowl Organic Himalayan Pink Popcorn. The Good Thins while they claim they have no artificial color or flavors, no hydrogenated oil and no high fructose corn syrup, they do contain sugar! For that reason I wouldn't purchase them, they are tasty though. My favorite wheat crackers are from Back to Nature. The cake and frosting mix came just in time for me to bake Hubby a birthday cake and they happen to be in his favorite flavor chocolate! I'll be baking that tomorrow. I like how it doesn't have any food coloring, preservatives or artificial colors. I've bought Ricola before when Hubby was sick. I like how they have vitamins in them and they sooth the throat. I had not tried fava beans before. I gave them a try and I don't care for them. They have too earthy a flavor for me, but they do have a lot of fiber in them. My favorite jam is from Bonne Maman and I'm pretty brand loyal, so I'm not crazy about trying the Smuckers version. Nor do I eat grape jam, I prefer strawberry, raspberry or orange. I haven't purchased Chips Ahoy! in a very long time. I prefer baking my own cookies fresh. I enjoy chocolate european cookies, so we look forward to trying the Loacker ones. I'll open them when we have a sweet tooth. I haven't tried the three minute meal yet, but plan to do so for lunch soon. I don't plan to continue my subscription since a lot of the products contain sugar and I only occasionally purchase products with sugar in them. It was a fun box to try though. I would recommend it, if you aren't on a sugar free diet or you're having company over that loves sweets. What's your favorite subscription box?

  1. Thanks, Wendy. This sounded like a fun way to try new things so I signed up. My first box should come at the first of the year and I'm anxious to see what they send.

    1. You're welcome! Yes, it is a fun box and at 1/2 price for your first box it's crazy not to give it a try. I had no trouble canceling. I may try it again, it's a great deal.
