August 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! Also every now and then they throw in a kitchen gadget. 

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 but the value always surpasses the price paid.

August Fancy Food Box

Contents of The Fancy Food Box with approximate retail price listed: 

Chocolate Twist Epic Sea Salt Caramels. Value = $12.00 - super huge and super soft1 

Biscotti Di Vecchio Toasted Almond Biscotti. Value = $9.95 - perfect with coffee

Miss Lady Cream Soda. Value = $9.00 - This was not very good at all. It had no carbonation and a tremendous amount of molasses in it. 

Scarpetta Pizza Sauce. Value = $7.95

Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust mix. Value = $4.42

The Gracious Gourmet Hatch Chili Pesto. Value = $10.00

Salento Farms Garlic Powder. Value $7.00

The total value of this months box is $60.32. This box came with goodies to make pizza. I'm not too sure about the gluten free pizza crust. I tried another brand and it was tough to roll out and the finished product wasn't very good. I like Bob's Red Mill though and so far that brand hasn't let me down. The bottle of cream soda is awesome but I don't know if it's $9 awesome. I haven't drank it yet because I want to properly sit down and enjoy it. I like the Scarpetta brand and have used a few of their items. For some reason some writing on the jar stuck out to me and it basically says that the jar is reusable, microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe. I can't believe I never saw that before. I'm totally going to to reuse this jar, it's super sturdy and I can use it to freeze my sauces and stocks. I really hope the hatch chili pesto isn't too hot. I love pesto and would love to use this on a pizza. 

Verdict: The fancy food boxes are always fun to see what you get. All of the products in this box are new to me.
