20170104_112251I am a subscription box addict. I freely admit it. Who doesn’t love getting surprises in the mail? You know, non-bill-type surprises.

One of my newest subscriptions is Degustabox. It costs $19.99 a month (first box is $10 off). I was super excited to get the first box for half price, and it was so worth it! The boxes before this one have been worth more than double the cost. This one wasn’t quite so high, but I’m still happy with the contents.

My No. 1 favorite item from this month’s Degustabox is the Cello Whisps. Guys. These aren’t cheese crackers. These are 100% CHEESE! You know how the best part of a lasagna or baked ziti is the crispy cheese bits? These are the crispy cheese bits! The flavor I received is Parmesan, but they also make cheddar Whisps. I have already ordered more Whisps (through Walmart).

Other great finds – cashews and cashew trail mix. My fiance stole those immediately and they are gone. Also gone: The Little Bites – they were delicious, moist birthday cake mini muffins.

I have to be honest here. I am not a pumpkin spice everything kind of person. I like pumpkin pie. And that’s where I draw the line. So the Hungry Jack Pumpkin Spice pancake mix is a miss for me.

I’ll also be giving away the Ginger Honey Crystals. I’m just not a fan of ginger unless it’s Vernors Ginger Ale.

The Healthy Pop Butter popcorn is definitely going to be used. Last month’s box had a bag of popcorn, so I’m thinking popcorn is a common theme in Degustaboxes. Also common: curry! Last month’s box had a jar of curry sauce, and this month’s box has a pouch of curry sauce. I’m looking forward to trying this one.

Also included was a cucumber cantaloupe water/juice. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m hoping it’s good.

Degustabox is pretty much a box full of new-ish food products. It’s a great idea for trying new flavors, and it’s great for the companies involved because you just might find something you love and need to order a lot more (hello, Whisps!).

And because I loved it so much, I also bought three-months subscription for my sister and her family. December’s box had so much snack food that I just couldn’t finish, I shared it with co-workers and still haven’t decided when to bake the Pillsbury Purely Simple Chocolate Cake and Buttercream Frosting they sent.

Overall, if you’re looking for new foods to sample, Degustabox is a good choice. Even if you just want to try one box for $10, it’s well worth it! Honestly, I bought the first box then canceled it immediately … and regretted it so I signed back up.

I do get points if you use my link to subscribe, but no pressure – feel free to go to the site without using my link.
