December Samplrs Box

Samplrs is a monthly subscription service that revolves around food.  Each month you will receive 4-6 full size products from up and coming food artisans.  The cost is $29.99 a month w/shipping included.  That's a little higher than other food subscriptions but if you like trying new artisan type foods it's well worth it.

The good:

Sizes: The company gives you full sizes of the products.  Now you don't have to hide your treasures from other people, unless you don't want to share. 

Price: If you are into gourmet food items then the price is awesome.  These are not products you are likely going to find on sale in your local grocery store.   

Discounts: You can buy the products you receive on the Samplrs website and in addition you can earn points which can be used for discounts in the marketplace 

Information: They include a card with the product information.    

Vegetarian: You can opt to receive an vegetarian-only box which will contain vegetarian alternatives to featured meat products. 

Skip: Yep you can skip a month by calling or emailing them before the month's cut off date.

The not so good:

I got nothin'

Contents of Samplrs Box. 

16 oz. bag Robicelli's Hot Cocoa Mix. Value = $15.00 - This is very good hot chocolate especially because you can make it without milk and it's still creamy and delicious!

4.4 oz. package of Black + Blanco Sandcastles Vanilla Black Sesame Cookies. Value = $6.00 - interesting little cookie.  a little dry but the flavor is nice. 

7 oz. The Gracious Gourmet Lemon Artichoke Pesto. Value = $10.00

14 oz. bag of Granola Lab Cranberry Cashew Compound. Value = $9.00

The total value of this months box is $40.00.  There are some really great products in this box.  The Gracious Gourmet makes some great products and I've never tried their lemon artichoke pesto but I'm betting it's delicious!  I'm up to my ears in granola right now but this one sounds good since it has cashews in it.  The cocoa mix sounds delicious and we will definitely give this a try.  They also included recipes for lemon artichoke pesto dip and chicken artichoke pesto pasta using the pesto mix.  Both recipes look easy and delicious.   

Verdict. This box never disappoints.  It consistently offers great stuff and a great value.    

I am not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Samplrs.  I purchase these subscriptions myself.
