With the cold nights drawing in, I like nothing more than a quiet night at home, watching a film or playing board games and enjoying a glass or two of something fizzy. Sure, I’d like to say that I’m gearing up for the party season but the reality is that my two young children have a better social life than me. Weekends used to mean staying out until 2am and drinking the bar dry… now I prefer slippers to stilettos and weekends are a chance to unwind and celebrate another week of surviving the school run.
So when we had the chance to try out a Bubble Club delivery, I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately when it first arrived I was suffering from food poisoning so for a couple of weeks the box just sat there taunting me. However, once I was feeling well again, what better way to celebrate my recovery than with a glass of Prosecco!
Bubble Club is a subscription service which delivers two full size bottles of fizz and a selection of gourmet goodies to your door each month. Every box has a theme – November’s was all about getting cosy, with delicious chocolate cookies and hot chocolate. We enjoyed cracking open the Prosecco while wrapping Christmas presents and the Brut was the perfect accompaniment to a quiet night in watching cheesy Christmas movies.
What’s in the box?
The November box included:
- Arthur Metz Crémant D’Alsace Prestige Brut
- Raphael Dal Bo Prosecco Superiore DOCG Selezione Extra Dry
- Frank’s Double Choc Chunk Butter Bites
- Choc-O-Lait Milk Hot Chocolate Stick
- Just Chocolate Orange bar, free from dairy, gluten, egg and nuts
- A copy of Bubble Magazine
The Bubble Magazine tells you about the history of the wines, and includes recipes and other interesting articles for you to peruse while sipping the fizz of the month. I’ve got to admit I know very little about wine. I know what I like, and Prosecco tops the list, but I have no idea about grapes, palates and complex notes. But you don’t need to be an expert to enjoy the Bubble Club – having a selection of bottles picked for you each month gives you the opportunity to try new wines that aren’t readily available in your local supermarket, so you might just discover a new favourite. And if you do, as a member you get 15% off cases of wine on the online store.
If you are looking for a gift for someone special, or perhaps you just fancy treating yourself (and why not!) then you can join the Bubble Club for £32.99 a month at www.bubbleclub.co.uk.
We were sent a Bubble Box in return for an honest review. All words and opinions are my own.
