May 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.

This is the new product card Fancy is sending. I like it better than the little cards.

The total value of this months box is $55.93. What a delicious box of food this month. I've had the Scarpetta vodka sauce before and as I recall it was very yummy. I love the trumpet shaped pasta because it holds the sauce like a little cup. I can.not.wait to try the truffle pesto. It combines two of my favorite things, truffles and basil. I'm going to have to find the perfect pairing for this. Grey Ghost makes super delicious cookies and I happen to love anything lemon. I like kale and I like kale chips but I don't care much for the kale covered in flavoring. I'm hoping these will be different, especially with the dill on them. I thought the cookbook was really nice. It's been out for a year so I'm sure you can get it cheaper than the retail price. It's really a beautifully done and has some great recipes. 

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