In this Ooh! Box I got 4 wines. One sparkling, one white & two reds. Check it out:
From left to right you have:
- 2010 Villiera Traditional Bush Vine Sauvignon Blanc (R90)
- 2009 Pebble Hill by Waterford (R71)
- 2010 Diemersfontein Cabernet Sauvignon (R75)
- Miss Molly Bubbly by Moreson (R75)
Then I also got a nice selection of foodie goodies and a little somethin’ extra:
- Uberpro Instant Red wine stain remover (R79.99)
** I’m really excited about this product because 1. I am very clumsy and 2. I have very clumsy friends… not going to name names, but Leigh knows I’m talking about her. Whoops. Sorry Leigh!
- Carmien Organic Rooibos for kids (R10)
** This one’s being regifted to a lady at work who’s little girl loves this stuff, cause clearly I’m not a “kids” anymore.
- Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil (R60)
- Crede Oh Mega Crunchy Peanut Butter (R30)
- Angelfoods Vanilla Bean Fudge (R25)
** Have already dug into this one and I can honestly say it’s probably the best fudge I’ve had in years. Super creamy, amazing vanilla taste. Fudge heaven right there.
So total value of this box = R515.99. But as a member, I only paid R295. That’s a saving of just under 43% and you can bet your ass I’m smiling all the way. Oh and remember, delivery is totally FREE. Love that.
They also included two recipe cards. One is for rooibos chocolate cupcakes and the other is for a chicken & bacon tagliatelle. Because I can’t cook or bake to save my life, I’m going to flaunt the cupcake recipe at work cause my “neighbour” is amazing at baking and I’m hoping she’ll bite and bring in treats for the office. hehehehehe. The pasta dish is being palmed off to the BF - gonna totally guilt him into making me dinner by using some random reason for why I’m feeling neglected or something. Yes, I’m evil like that.
So after two amazing boxes I can tell you that I’m totally sold on this concept. It’s like xmas every month! If you want to sign up to be part of the Ooh! box experience – just hop over here. Come one, you know you want to…
UPDATE as at Sep 2012: I see the subscription price has gone up to R495. But as I understand the value of the box contents has also gone up.
