This months Degustabox theme is the BBQ ! So summer is finally upon us, we are dusting off the barbecues and stocking up on coals. Alcohol, spices, snacks, drinks, biscuits and sweets are an integral part of our Great British BBQ Season and in this months box there is even a non alcoholic wine for the designated driver! As a blogger I get to sample items from both non alcohol and alcohol boxes so I may have an extra item or two in my box.
Ken has been so happy since this mornings box arrived, it includes lots of goodies he likes and seeing as he bought me two bunches of flowers this morning I can not let him have them!
The Degustabox is geared around a family, it has a great selection of different items each month that a family can share. Some of the items may be hot off the press and not even in the shops or are brand new on the shelves. Even the brands I am familiar with have new lines that have been included in this BBQ theme box. I love receiving my monthly Degustabox and if I didn’t get one sent me to review I would definitely subscribe. £12.99 monthly is the standard cost including delivery and each box has over £20 worth of goodies. Go to http://www.degustabox.co.uk and get your first box for just £5.99 with my code 8c0x9 You can cancel at any time. Dates of deliveries and cancellation times are listed on their website. Each month I review the contents and here are this months delights!
