Hungry Globetrotter - Paella Party

Hungry Globetrotter has been around since last year but I just decided to try it. This used to be a bi-monthly (6 times a year) box but because the price is on the higher side they are switched to a quarterly subscription (4 times a year). With the new quarterly format the boxes will ship in August, November, February and May. Each quarter Hungry Globetrotter will send a box of non-perishable items like spices, sauces and grains. These items will be focused on international cuisines. They also include recipes using the products as well as a shopping list. The price of this box is $34.95 with shipping included.

This subscription is available in the US only.

The good:

Try new flavors: If you like trying new flavors and food then this is great.

Themes: This one is Spanish, Summer Paella Party, and November will be South Korea, Kimchee a Go Go.

Need a gift: You can send this as a gift for the foodie in your life.

Serves four: They design their kits with enough ingredients to serve four people. With the spices you will mostly likely have leftovers which isn't a bad thing.

Skip: They call it putting your account on hold, which is basically the same thing.

The not so good: 

Don't like to cook: If you don't like to cook then this isn't for you. This is really geared towards people who like to cook and some of the meals take time and effort.

Paella Party!!

Contents of box with approximate retail value:

Ferrer Brava Sauce - spicy tomato sauce. Value = $9.75

Santo Tomas Bomba Rice. Value = $7.25

Chiquilin Paella Seasoning 5 packets. Value = $6.49

Silva Olives Stuffed with Manchego Cheese. Value = $8.50

The total value of this  box is $31.99.  I was super excited about this box. We were just talking about making Paella the other day so this will be great! I'm not sure how the olives fit in, maybe something to munch on while waiting for the paella to cook?

Verdict: I'm glad I gave this one one more try because I liked this months box. Now I'm super excited about the November South Korea box.
