August 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. The Fancy Food box is priced at $39.00 plus $7.95 shipping. This is a little high but if you are into food products they send out some really cool stuff and so far the value has been over the $48 price of the box.

This subscription is available worldwide, shipping prices vary on location.

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: 

Bodum Brazil French Press. Value = $20.00

J & M Lemon Cookie Straws. Value = $3.90 - A little dry but I love the lemon flavor.

J & M Original Cheese Straws. Value = $6.40 - The cheese flavor is good but they are a little dry. 

Umami Dust Taste #5. Value = $10.05

Dang Toasted Coconut Chips.  Value = $6.00 - These are super addicting. I eat them plain out of the box. 

Ubons BBQ Bloody Mary Mix.  Value = $10.00

Papabubble X Fancy Candy. Value = $7.50 - These are cute little tasty bite sized candies. 

The total value of this months box is $63.85.  This is a pretty awesome box in my opinion. I have never used a french press but I hear the make an awesome cup of coffee. I love the coconut chips. I had received them before and practically ate the whole bag on my own. The lemon and cheese straws are a little dry but the flavor is good. I'm super excited to try the umami dust I love experimenting with umami flavors. For some reason when I think of umami I think of bonito flakes. I'm not a Bloody Mary fan and now I have 2 bottles in the pantry. I'm looking for recipes that I can use them in that doesn't involve drinking it. 

Verdict. This box was great!

  1. Most of the recipes, I found don't require a "mix" but maybe you can give this a try -

    1. sounds interesting. I will have to check into that. I made fideos and usually you use tomato sauce of which I had none. I saw the bottle of bloody mary mix and thought hey why not. Everyone loved it and it was perfect since the seasoning was already in the mix.
