January 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.

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

A & A Organic Farms Wet Rubz Santa Maria Style Marinade. Value = $6.99

La Tourangelle Thai Wok Oil. Value = $7.99

Brianna's Champagne Caper Vinaigrette. Value = $3.99

Un Mondi Spanish Style Chorizo. Value = $6.50

Volpi Pinot Grigio Salami. Value = $7.50

The total value of this months box is $32.97. When I saw the wok oil I remembered I have some of this in my pantry but it must be tucked in the back somewhere because I haven't seen it in awhile. The Wet Rubz marinade is new to me and I love a good marinade. I was super excited to see the chorizo because I found a recipe I wanted to make last weekend but I needed chorizo and this kind is hard to find at my local store.

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