The products. The products are gourmet items. These are items you would find in a specialty store not an everyday supermarket.
The sizes. Full size products. This is great!
Choice. There isn't just one box. It seems there is something for every ones taste.
Need a gift? Have a foodie friend that is impossible to buy for. You can gift a 2, 5 or 10 month subscription.
Commitment issues? You don't have to be a montly subscriber to buy a box. Boxes are offered to subscribers first but after the 6th of every month anyone can buy a box. Subscribers received benefits like free shipping in the marketplace and first pick at boxes.
The not so good:
Skip a month? There is no option to skip the month but they can pause your account for up to 3 months.
The contents: I have also listed the retail price of each item.
2 recipe cards using items from box - great idea!
8.5 fl. oz bottle of Lucero Arbequina Olive oil - I've used this brand in the past and it's fantastic ($7.00)
6 oz Olli Calabrese Spicy Salame with Sangiovese Wine ($14.25)
2 oz Whole Spice Italian Seasoning Whole ($11.00)
8 oz Gilda's Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti ($6.50) - yum!
12oz Wineforest Wild Foods Porcini Polenta ($13.00) - this was really good, I don't normally like mushrooms but this added a nice texture to the polenta.
The retail value of my box is $51.75! That's a $21 savings or it's like getting the olive oil and salame for free!
The verdict? I am super excited about this montly service and this one is going to be a keeper in my house!
**I pay for these boxes myself and am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Foodzie.
