July Taste Trunk - 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.

July Premium Gourmet Taste Trunk

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Amphora Premium Balsamic Vinegar from Berkeley, Ca. Value = $7.00

Lazy Kettle Hickory Liquid Smoke from Brisbane, Ca. Value = $5.00

1849 Brand Tri-Tip Meat Marinade from Brisbane, Ca. Value = $4.58

CC Made Rosemary Caramel Sauce from San Anselmo, Ca. Value = $5.00

CC Made Pistachio Nut Caramel Corn from San Anselmo, Ca. Value = $8.00

The total value of this box is $29.58. I'm a big fan of CC Made, they always have delicious products. I've also tried BBQ sauce from 1849 and it was delicious so I imagine the meat marinade will also be great. Recently I needed liquid smoke for something but of course that is not something I normally keep in the pantry. If you have ever used liquid smoke you know a little goes a long way so this bottle should last quite awhile. I love, love, love balsamic vinegar. I could probably drink the stuff but since that's kind of gross I will save this for dressings or an easy appetizer of bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Verdict: I like this box and am super anxious to try the rosemary caramel.
