September Taste Trunk Gourmet Trunk

Taste Trunk is a food based subscription box. I love food, especially gourmet food so I didn't hesitate to sign up for this box. Taste Trunk actually has four different themed trunks you can purchase. They are Gourmet, Health, Sweet and BBQ trunk. I love that they have something for everyone. I get lots of health type foods and I don't need any sweets so I decided against these ones. I was torn between the BBQ one and the Gourmet one but ended up choosing the Gourmet one. The nice thing about Taste Trunk is you can switch your boxes at anytime so I may try the BBQ one at some point. The price of Taste Trunk is $29.00 plus $5.99 shipping making it $34.99 a month.

This subscription is available to the US only and ships from Discovery Bay, Ca.

The Good:

Products: The items in my box are gourmet and full size.

Info: They send info cards with products information and recipes.

Variety: I love that they have four different themed boxes.

Want more: They have an online store where you can purchase more of the things you love.

Change it up: Want a different trunk next month. You can change your trunks by emailing them

The Not So Good:

Skip: Doesn't look like there is a way to skip, only cancel.

Referral program: They have one but you have to enter the persons full name when you check out and they get 10% off their next box. I like referral that use links and have discounts for both people.

September Gourmet Trunk

Contents of the Gourmet Taste Trunk with approximate retail price:

200 ml bottle Amphora Olive Oil from Berkeley, CA. Value = $7.00

200 ml bottle Amphora Balsamic Vinegar from Berkeley, CA. Value = $7.00

1849 Brand Artichoke with Merlot Pasta Sauce from Brisbane, CA. Value = $5.50 - The boyfriend used this in a pasta concoction he made and I didn't get to try it before he added a bunch of stuff to it. I got the general idea though and I thought it was a really good sauce. 

The Pasta Shop Vineyard Pasta from Nashville, TN. Value = $5.50

Terrapin Ridge Farms Sweet Beet & Horseradish Mustard. Value = $6.70

The total value of this Gourmet box from Taste Trunk is $31.70. I am thrilled with this box. I love how everything fits together. You really could make a meal out of this box - except I'm not quite sure how you would fit the mustard in. Speaking of the mustard I can't wait to try it. I've had beet horseradish before and really enjoyed it. I think is will be really good. The pasta is really cute and I think I want to showcase the colors and shapes when I make it so I will probably make an olive oil sauce for it.

Verdict: This one of my new favorite boxes.
