Quarterly Co. Veronica Belmont - #NOM05

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 $50-$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. Veronica Belmont 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 box used to be $25.00 but recently I received an email from Quarterly saying all of their $25 subscriptions were going up to $50.

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. I also found it interesting that this box shipped from El Dorado Hills, Ca which is a few hours from San Francisco but about 45 minutes from where I live. 

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.

The Veronica Belmont Quarterly Co. box.

These are what is written on the shot glasses.

Contents with approximate retail price:

SalsaBol in Yellow. Value = $9.99

Papalote Mexican Grill Roasted Tomato Salsa. Value = $6.99

Mustache bag clips. Value = $2.99

Set of two shot glasses. Value = $2.07/ea.

The total value of this latest mailing is about $24.11. I personally think this is a great box and that the salsabol is GENIUS! We eat salsa at least once a week at home and always have the problem of spillage over the side. Which brings me to the salsa. This will be gone in a week. The bag clips are cute and I'm sure we will use them to close the triscuit bag (we eat our salsa with triscuits - I don't know why we just do). The shot glasses are pretty funny. I may or may not use them but only because we have tons already. 

Verdict: This is was a fun box. I'm really anxious to see what the next box will include at the higher price. 

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