A New Subscription Box: MicroBarBox - Variety Box

A new and very different subscription box has been launched and its called MicroBarBox*. Basically what you get is a box full of alcoholic drinks, mixers and snacks which are cleverly packed up to look like a beauty box subscription!  Prices start at £24.00 (plus £4.76 P&P). See more details HERE. I was sent a Variety Box* to review.

Get £12 off your first box when you sign up to any subscription using code

Co-Founder Kate, a lover of monthly subscription boxes thought how fab it would be to have a cocktail & alcoholic drink monthly box (me too!) She searched online but couldn't find one so decided to launch her own with her friend Paula and husband Graham.  

Inside the box you find tissue, crinkly paper and a menu card (just like a beauty box!) which tells you what's in the box this month and how to mix it! Everything is carefully tissue and bubble wrapped and exciting to open!

So what's inside:
1 x 5cl Bacardi Miniature
1 x 5cl 6 O'Clock Gin Miniature
1 x 5cl Wild Strawberry Vodka 
1 x 200ml Prosecco
1 x 200ml 6 O'Clock Tonic Water
1 x Funkin Mojito Mixer
1 x 50g bag of Dormen Chilli & Lime Cashew Nuts
3 x Dolfin Chocolate Squares

On the "what goes with what?" card you will find suggestions on how to mix your drinks as well as a little information about the snacks enclosed.  I personally think it's a great box and I'm very tempted to sign up.

If you are tempted too I've got a special code for a discount of £12 on your first box, when you sign up to any subscription. Use code "BB12OFF1STBOX".

There are also a fab range of GIFT BOXES - Chocoholic Box has my name written all over it!

Do you think this is the sort of subscription box you'd sign up to?
