June 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. 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.

June Premium Gourmet Taste Trunk

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Gourmet Du Village Cast Iron Trivet. Value = $9.98

Pasta Valente Pasta Bella Chocolate Fettuccine from Charlottesville, SC. Value = $6.50

Pasta Valente Pasta Bella Lemon Garlic Fettuccini from Charlottesville, SC. Value = $6.50

Gourmet Du Village Infused Sea Salt in vintage merlot, aged balsamic, sun dried tomato and vanilla bean. Value = $11.99e
Willamette Valley Mustards Balsamic Basil Vinaigrette from Pendleton, OR. Value = $6.00

The total value of this box is $40.97. Chocolate pasta? I've never heard of such a thing! The directions say to serve it cold like a dessert so that's what we are going to do this weekend. I'm thinking of sprinkling a little of the vanilla bean salt on top. Speaking of the salt hot cool is the little book of salts? It opens up like a book and has information about the salts and how to use them. The trivet is nice but I already have several trivets so I'm going to save this for a gift. The lemon garlic fettuccine pasta sounds delicious and I'm sure we will make good use of the vinaigrette. I love all things with balsamic and basil in them.

Verdict: I like this box and I'm glad they are including kitchen items in it now.
