Have you discovered Degustabox yet?
It's a brilliant monthly food subscription box - full to bursting with 10-15 items, most of which will be totally new to the market!
Each box costs just £12.99 which is much cheaper than the retail cost of all the items together, and it is such a fun way to explore new food and drink items.
I love the idea of not knowing what you're going to get until the box arrives, and then working your way through the items over the course of the month.
Even if there are a few items in each box that aren't quite your taste, someone else in the family or a friend or neighbour might like to try it, or even the local food-bank, so I'd never be concerned about wasting items.

We've only had the box a little under two weeks, and we've already used one of the curry pastes and the mango chutney for a weekday dinner, I had one of the Nutri-Pots for a speedy working lunch, both of the soft drinks have been consumed and Liam enjoyed the lager on one of the hot evenings we had last week.
Liam enjoyed the lager with a lovely Mexican Taco dinner during the week...
Liam also totally loved the bag of Fit Popcorn and devoured it over the course of the week (I wasn't so sure, cheesy popcorn just isn't for me!)
Meanwhile, I've been working my way through the mini crackers, which are perfect for me - I eat this sort of food a lot, and am already a big fan of Rakusen's Matzo crackers!
I'm about to try the Oloves olives with today's lunch, and the rest of the box contents are sitting in my kitchen cupboards waiting to be tasted...!
Geeta's Rogan Josh Curry Paste - ready to cook up a quick and easy storm in the kitchen thanks to my August Degustabox!
The BEST Mango Chutney I have ever tasted! Genuinely the nicest shop-bought one ever, its got great spice, but tons of flavour and it isn't overpoweringly sweet.
Yum! Delicious curry using Geeta's Rogan Josh Curry Paste & Mango Chutney
I found the whole process of receiving a Degustabox really fun and exciting - it would make the perfect gift for someone who is particularly "foodie", especially those who are quite adventurous and willing to try anything! It would also be a fun way to encourage/challenge fussy eaters (children included) to try new things.
I'm excited to see what will be in our next box!
