December 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.

December Taste Trunk

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

Gourmet Du Village Appetizer Plates. Value = $19.95

Sticky Fingers Bakery Tart Cherry Scones. Value = $5.39

LuLu Meyer Lemon Curd. Value = $6.00

(6) Two Leaves Tea Co. Organic Assam tea. Value = $0.57/ea.

(2) Rip van Wafels Amsterdam Wafels. Value = $1.56/ea.

The total value of this months box is $37.88. I really like the appetizer plates in this months box. I have so many little plates though I feel like I should save this for a gift. I am definitely going to keep the lemon curd for myself because I love lemon curd. I'm a big fan of scones and I tried making them from scratch once but they turned out terrible. I don't have scone pan so I'm hoping I can make these without one. My favorite item in the box and only because I know I like them in the the Rip van Wafels. They are so good all warmed up over a cup of coffee. 

Verdict: This box is on the pricier side but if you like cooking it's a great box.
