September 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.

Price: $35.00 a month with no option to skip. 

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.

September Premium Gourmet Taste Trunk

Contents of Taste Guru Box with approximate retail value:

Culinary Twist Maya Bay Thai Marinade from Foster City, CA. Value = $5.99

Terrapin Ridge Farms Cinnamon Clove Tomato Jam from Clearwater, FL. Value = $8.00

Two Snooty Chefs Hungarian Ragout from Seattle, WA. Value = $5.95

Two Snooty Chefs Rally Fries Seasoning from Seattle, WA Value = $5.95

Sweet Sam's Classic Crumb Cake from Newman, CA . Value = $2.99

Sweet Sam's Coffee Streusel Cake from Newman, CA. Value = $2.99

The total value of this box is $34.86. This is equal to the price of the box but I'm ok with that since it has specialty items in it. The Sweet Sam's cakes were really good with coffee. I think I'm going to put the tomato jam over some brie and have it with crackers. Yum! The thai marinade can be used as a dressing, a dip for bread or a marinade.

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