August 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.

Price: $30-$35 a month with no option to skip. 

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.

August Premium Gourmet Taste Trunk

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Rustic Bakery, Hazelnut & Sultana Pan Forte Crostini from Larkspur, CA. Value = $7.95

Miner's Mix OMGarlic Cheese Bread Spread from Mariposa, CA. Value = $4.99

Shemps Hot Ketchup from Healdsburg, CA. Value = $5.50

Volpi Chianti Salami from St. Louis, MO. Value = $6.70

Gourmet Du Village Apple Spice Pancakes from Morin Heights, Canada. Value = $11.50

The total value of this box is $36.64. This box was filled with things I love. Only two of the items were new to me but I totally don't mind since I love the things I've tried before. The rustic bakery crisps are so good I could eat them just as they are. The cheese bread mix is so yummy. You mix it with mayo, spread it on sourdough or french bread, toast and enjoy. It's yum-e. We frequently have wine and cheese for a snack and the salami will go nicely with that. The apple spice pancake mix will also make crepes. I've never made crepes before so I think I will use this and give it a try. I really hope the hot ketchup isn't too hot because I'm looking forward to trying it.

Verdict: I loved the stuff in the box this month.
