Quarterly Co. Veronica Belmont - #NOM03

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  It's not a monthly adventure but rather quarterly.  The way it works is you pick a "contributor" you would like to receive a curated gift from pay a anywhere from $25-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each box you receive the story behind it.  The curators consist of CEO's, authors, chefs, world travelers, business owners, etc.  A few months ago I signed up for Veronica Belmont's subscription.  Veronica is a self described geek from San Francisco.  Her boxes are filled with delicious and creative food options from the city by the bay.

This subscription ships worldwide. Shipping is included in the price for US customers. For Canada add $10 shipping to the base price and everyone else add $15 shipping to the base price.

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you since they ship every 3 months.

Contents with approximate retail price:

10 oz. jar of Inna Jam Fresno Chili Jam. Value = $12.00 - I expected this to be really spicy but it wasn't, it was just plain delicious! Seriously I had to stop myself from eating the whole jar. 

10 oz. jar of Inna Jam Pluot Jam. Value = $12.00 - Same as above although I knew it wouldn't be spicy. I found myself mixing the flavors together on the flatbread. I honestly thing this is the only thing I ate that day. 

6 oz. box Rustic Bakery Olive Oil & Sea Salt Flatbread. Value = $6.99 - Perfect with the jams!

The value of this box is $30.99.  I'm really excited about this box.  Food is always a hit around my house because it's something we all can enjoy.  I've had the Rustic Bakery products before and found them to be delicous.  I think they are going to go perfectly with the jams which look soooo good. 

Verdict: This is probably one of my favorite boxes so far from Veronica.

**I pay for these boxes myself and not any type of sponsor paid or unpaid for Quarterly Co.
