November 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 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.

November Fancy Food Box

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

Beer Flats Porter Crackers. Value = $6.99

Gourmet Du Village Rosemary Garlic Bread Dipping Oil. Value = $8.50

Northwest Finest Chicken & Thyme Soup. Value = $4.95

San Francisco Salt Company Hawaiian Lava Salt. Value = $5.39

Cucina & Amore Peruvian Huancaína Veggie Sauce. Value = $7.00

The total value of this months box is $32.83. I have never heard of Huancaína veggie sauce. My family is pretty good about eating their veggies but anything to make them more exciting is always appreciated. I'm not a big fan of dark beer so I'm hoping these crackers don't have a dark beer flavor. I'm not sure what to put on it. I'm thinking some type of robust heavy cheese. Soup mixes are always great to have on hand. With our non-traditional working hours keeping stuff like this on hand to throw in a crockpot is always handy. I love trying different salts, no joke I probably have 12 different varieties of salts in my pantry. I'm surprised I don't have Hawaiian lava salt already but I don't. I also love dipping bread in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. In addition to different salts I have several flavors of olive oil and balsamic vinegars on hand at all times. I think I'm going to make a gift of this bread dipping oil. A little bread bowl packaged with this oil would be cute.

Verdict: I may not have actively gone out and searched for these items but they are definitely things I want to try.
