November 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. They also just introduced two mini boxes called mini sweet and mini healthy sweet. 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. The price for the mini trunks are $13.99 plus $5.99 shipping.

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 or bonus items for both people.

Contents of the Gourmet Taste Trunk with approximate retail price:

Rabbit Creek Pumpkin & Cream Cheese Bread Mix. Value = $8.15

Vino de Milo Gorgonzola Pear Dressing. Value = $5.99

Dulcet Cuisine Mild Indian Curry Ketchup. Value = $6.00

JB's Best Cilantro Corn Black Bean Salsa. Value = $5.99

Donsuemor Madeleine. Value = $2.81 - Yummmy Madeleines

The total value of this Gourmet box from Taste Trunk is $28.94. This is a great box! We eat salsa at least once a week and we both love cilantro! I love almost everything pumpkin so pumpkin cream cheese bread is definitely something I'm into. The ketchup sound very interesting. Curry usually adds spice so I wonder if this has more of a cocktail sauce taste? The only thing I'm not too sure about is the dressing. I like blue cheese and Gorgonzola but I'm kind of picky about them. Overall this came in at about $6 less than I paid but I still think it's worth it because the items are gourmet and not easy to find at my local grocery store.

Verdict: I love this gourmet taste trunk box. I want to try the others but I think this is the best fit for me.
