May Taste Trunk - Premium Gourmet Box

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. I keep thinking I'm going to try the BBQ one at some point but I'm really liking this trunk. 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.

May Premium Gourmet Taste Trunk

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Lillie's Q Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce from Chicago, IL, Value = $8.00

Torie & Howard Pink Grapefruit Hard Candy from New Milford, CT. Value = $4.99

Gourmet Du Village Lemon Dill Dip Mix w/whisk from Morin Heights, Canada. Value = $8.99

Gourmet Du Village Provence Seasoned Sea Salt from Morin Heights, Canada. Value = $5.99

Gourmet Du Village Classic Dip Bowl and Spreader. Value = $9.99

The total value of this box is $37.96. I saw a review on another site and she received bbq instead of the vinegar sauce. I really wish I got the bbq sauce. I'm just not sure I'll use a hot pepper vinegar sauce. I like a little spice but this looks hot. I thought it was nice of them to include a bowl to go with the dip mix. I was actually thinking of saving both those item for a gift. Although when I give food items I like to try them first to make sure it's good. I have tons of sea salt, ok well not tons but probably 6-8 different varieties in my pantry. But guess what I don't have? I don't have provence seasoned salt, I'll be giving this a try. I've received the pear flavored hard candy in another box and they were really good. I'm hoping the peach is just as yummy.

Verdict: Last month they said the boxes would start including kitchen tools, hence the bowl. I like it and am glad they are mixing it up.
