Degustabox is a new subscription box that sends an assortment of food and drink products to your door every month.
Each box will feature at least 10 full-sized products (as well as samples) from a variety of high quality brands. Items can include popcorn, jams, snack bars, beverages, condiments, nut butters, candies, nuts, and more. The mission of Degustabox is to help introduce you to new brands and products for less that you’d pay for them in store. The total value will always exceed the cost of the monthly subscription.
Subscriptions are $19.99/month with free shipping within the US. — For a limited time, you can get your first box for just $9.99 shipped! No coupon code needed. (If the link doesn’t automatically take $10 off, you can use coupon code “8717R” at checkout.)
Let’s see what’s in the June 2016 Degustabox!
Everything was shipped in a very large — and equally heavy — brown box with the Degustabox logo on the side.
A peek inside!
Degustabox has already been operating in five European countries, but this is their first box launched to the US market. The welcome sheet above explained more about the subscription and how to earn “Degusta Points”.
All of the products included in July’s box were listed on an info sheet, along with photos, descriptions, and retail prices for each one.
Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter ($2.99) – Peanut butter is something we go through a LOT in our house — especially with two picky preschoolers. PB&J sammies with no crust are quite the popular lunch entree around here. 😉 I don’t think we’ve ever tried a spread with cinnamon added, so this should be a nice change of pace.
Haribo Sour Gold Bears ($2.79) – Classic gummy bears with a tangy, sour twist. These sugar-dusted gummies come in lemon, orange, pineapple, raspberry, & strawberry flavors and feature a convenient resealable closure.
Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce ($4.99) – I was afraid to look at the ingredients because I figured this would be made with fish sauce… To my surprise, it’s actually completely vegan-friendly! My husband has been on a big stir fry kick lately, so we’ll definitely be trying this out soon.
Orchard Valley Cashews ($1.98) – A heart-healthy snack consisting of just cashew halves & pieces, sunflower oil, and sea salt.
Orchard Valley Cranberry Almond Cashew Trail Mix ($1.98) – Another smart snack choice made with a blend of cashews, cranberries, and almonds.
Briannas Home Style Italian Vinaigrette Dressing ($3.99) – An authentic Italian vinaigrette made with blended oils, vinegar, olives, Romano cheese, rosemary, basil, and other natural ingredients.
Elmhurst Harvest Walnut Beverage ($3) – As a vegan, I’m always more than happy to try out new nut-based milk alternatives. I’ve actually never tried walnut milk before, so it’s cool that this was included in the box. Also, this same item currently sells for $7.99 on Amazon as an add-on! Crazy.
Wise Sea Salt Popcorn ($1.50) – Reduced fat, air-popped popcorn with just 70 calories per bag. Gluten-free and vegan-friendly!
Wise Cinnabon Popcorn ($1.50) – For something a little sweeter, they also included two bags of this new Cinnabon cinnamon roll flavored popcorn. Surprisingly, these only have 80 calories per bag.
Topo Chico Lime Flavored Sparkling Water ($1) – I’m not sure that I’ve ever had sparkling water before. This one is flavored with lime and sounds like it’ll be super refreshing… Sure to come in handy when the temperature hits 90 in a couple days. (Ugh.)
Topo Chico Mineral Water ($1) – Okay, I think I’ve had mineral water a couple times, but I’m really not sure. (I tend to stick to plain ol’ flat, un-fizzy water.) Either way, this’ll also be useful to have around for the coming heat wave.
Honees Cough Drops ($2.75) – These all natural cough drops are 50% larger than average drops and are filled with pure liquid honey. They’re also packed with Vitamins C, B6, and B12. I’ll be putting these away for the winter colds that are sure to pop up in a few months.
Vita Coco Coconut Oil ($3.87) – Three packets of 100% organic, cold-pressed coconut oil. This stuff has a gazillion uses in baking, cooking, skincare, makeup removal, and so much more.
Coupons – A couple of coupons were also included to use on this month’s featured products.
I had no idea what to expect from Degustabox, but I’m definitely impressed with their first offering. The box was packed FULL of products and they included a nice variety of different foods, snacks, beverages, and more. The total value using the prices provided (which were sometimes less than Amazon prices) came to just over $33. Not bad for a $20 box. — Plus, don’t forget you can get your first box for just $9.99 shipped! No coupon code needed. (If the link doesn’t automatically take $10 off, you can use coupon code “8717R” at checkout.)
