April Taste Trunk - Premium 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 allows you to switch your boxes at anytime so I may try the BBQ one at some point. They also have 2 different size trunks. You can get the Gourmet trunk with 4-8 items for $23.99 plus $5.99 shipping each month. They also have the Premium Gourmet trunk with 5-10 items for $28.99 plus $5.99 a month. This is the one I subscribe to. If you want to subscribe for 3-12 months at a time you get a discount ranging from $1.05-$4.65 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 programs that use links and have discounts or bonus items for both people.

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

New Canaan Farms, Peach Jezebel, Dripping Springs, TX. Value = $12.00

Terrapin Ridge Farms, mango habanero jam from Clearwater, FL. Value = $8.00

The total value of this box is $39.00. There were a lot of sauces in the box this month. I'm going to have to figure out what to do with all of these. I think the first thing I will use will be there seafood rub or the sweet heat marinade. The sun dried tomato and Parmesan spread looks delicious and I can totally see that on some nice crusty bread. I'm going to have to look into some recipes for the mango jam and peach Jezebel. The included recipe cards recommend fish and shrimp with those items.

Verdict: I'm told the boxes will start more variety including kitchen tools. That's exciting.
