April Fancy Food Box

The Fancy Food Box includes 5 or more gourmet artisan food products along with a selection of tasty recipes and pairing suggestions. This used to be the food box offered by Samplrs but now it's through The Fancy.  The major change is the price. The Fancy Food box is $39.00 plus $7.95 shipping. I think this is a little pricey but luckily for me since I was a Samplrs subscriber I pay the original Samplrs price until I cancel which is $29.99. This is my second food box from The Fancy and I have to say the value has been way over the $47 price and they items they send are pretty awesome.

The good:

Sizes: You get full size food items!

Information: They include a nice card with the product information and picture.     

The not so good:

Skip: There is no option to skip a month, only cancel. 

Price: The price is a little high - unless of course it has great products and a high value.

Contents of The Fancy Food Box with approximate retail price listed: 

Divine Brine Pickle Relish. Value = $4.00

5J Cinco Jotas Acorn-fed hand cut ham. Value = $19.50

Stem Citrus Spritzer. Value = $4.99

Dave's Madagascar Vanilla Coffee Syrup. Value = $10.99

BobbySue's Original Nuts. Value = $3.49 - These are really delicious. I ate the whole bag. 

Martin's Pretzels Chocolate Pretzel Bar. Value = $7.50 - This was very interesting, in a good way. It was a salty sweet flavor with a slight coffee flavor.

Mina Harissa Mild red pepper sauce. Value = $8.95

The total value of this months box is $59.42. I'm super excited about this box. I have the citrus spritzer and I have to tell you it actually works. It works so well we bought one for my boyfriends mom and she loved it so much she bought one for her friend. I'm totally keeping this one as a spare or maybe I'll keep one for limes and one for lemons. The ham looks like prosciutto to me and I LOVE prosciutto. I don't use harissa much because mostly I use Sriracha sauce instead. I love pickles and pickle relish and seeing this makes me excited for summer barbecues. I've never had coffee syrup before but sounds good to me.

Verdict. Fantastic value for me since I'm an existing customer. If you're into food and don't mind spending the money this is a pretty awesome box even at the new price.
