February 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.

February Taste Trunk

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

Maison de Monaco Raspberry & Violet Preserves from San Francisco, CA. Value = $6.00

CC Made Dark Chocolate Caramel Sauce from San Anselmo, CA. Value = $12.00

Two Snooty Chefs' Oaxaca Molé, from Seattle, WA. Value = $5.95

Seattle Chocolates Total Toffee Milk Chocolate Truffle Bar from Seattle, WA. Value = $3.50

Seattle Chocolates Pink Bubbly Bubbly Raspberry Dark Chocolate Truffle Bar from Seattle, WA. Value = $3.50 - I wasn't sure what to expect in this candy but I certainly wasn't expecting pop rocks. It was crackly and fun.

F.A. Ninos Chocolate Chipotle Adobo Sauce from Petaluma, CA. Value = $8.00

The total value of this months box is $38.95. This is always such a yummy box. This months box definitely had a chocolate theme to it. I was just having a conversation with someone the other day about how delicious molé is so this came at the perfect time because I'm craving molé now. The last thing I should be eating is chocolate bars and caramel sauce but boy oh boy are they delicious! I've had both of these brands before and they are delicious. I'm hoping the adobo sauce isn't too spicy because it sure does sound good.  

Verdict: I enjoy this box but my pantry is super overloaded with jars of stuff right now. I've canceled this one for now but when my pantry lightens up I'll be back.
