The August Degustabox

Tuesday, 15 September 2020

As those of you who have been reading me for a while know, I am the lucky recipient of the gift of a Degustabox each month. Once a month, around the middle of the month, I am gifted with one of these lovely boxes which contain a delicious assortment of all things foodie.  I just love these boxes.  Each one is always a lovely surprise.
Opening each one feels a tiny a bit like Christmas to me. Always a surprise, and always filled with things that pique my interest and desire to try. Degustabox is a monthly foodie subscription service that sends out a range of 10 to 15 specially selected foodie products. I even have a code that  can give you which will  give you a £3 discount off of your first box. I will tell you about that at the end. I have been getting these boxes for a couple of years now and I have to say I have never been disappointed.

Usually each month I am inspired to make a recipe using some of the products in the box.  The August box month was a first for me however.  For the first time in a couple of years I was unable to come up wih a fresh recipe using anything from the box!  That did not stop me from enjoying the box however, which was labeled the Back to School and On the Go box!

There was lots of goodies to enjoy. Some items which I was already familiar with and some which I was not.  Heres more about what was in the box!
