January Fancy Food Box

The Fancy Food Box includes 5 or more gourmet artisan food products. 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. I also think this would make a great holiday gift for the food lover in your life.

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.     

Products: They really do sent gourmet and artisan foods and products. 

The not so good:

Skip: There is no option to skip a month, only cancel but the cancel process is online and super simple. 

Price: The price is a little high - unless of course it has great products and a high value.

January Fancy Food Box.

Contents of The Fancy Food Box with approximate retail price listed: 

Kusmi Tea BB Detox. Value = $16.00

The Gilded Nut Mediterranean Herb Pistachios. Value = $6.00

The Gilded Nut Habanero Pistachios. Value = $6.00

Baru Fleur De Sel Caramel Marshmallows. Value = $14.00

Sweater Cup and Saucer. Value = $14.00

Charlito's Cocina Cured Meats in Campo Seco (country sausage). Value = $15.00

The total value of this months box is $71.00. I thought this box was terrific except for the cup and saucer. I mean it's cute and all but it matches none of my other cups and it seems so random. If it was a tea strainer or did something unique I could understand. I'm going to have to figure out something creative to do with it. The pistachios are terrific but I'm a little afraid of the habanero ones. I wonder if I can wipe the spice off? I so wanted to rip open the box of marshmallows but I've been doing so good on my diet I didn't want to risk eating the whole box. We have some friends coming over this weekend so maybe I'll open it then and if we each eat one I won't be tempted to hoard them all for myself. The tea is a detox tea that is suppose to help your skin. I don't if it will work or not but green tea and grapefruit sounds like an interesting combo to me. 

Verdict: The fancy food boxes rarely disappoint in value and products. I always look forward to this box.
