Quarterly Co. Culinary Box

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  The way it works is you pick a contributor you would like to receive a curated gift from anywhere from $50-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each gift you receive the story behind it. I used to subscribe to Andrew Zimmern and Food52 but canceled those after a few shipments and picked chef Ludo Lefebvre's box. I was happy with the Ludo box but then Quarterly decided to change things up a bit. The sent and email saying they were now going to have a culinary box which different curators every 3 months. The price would still be $50, the same as the Ludo box. 

This months box was curated by Food52. 

Price $50 every 3 months.

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you. 

Quarterly Co. Food52 curated box. 

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Zoku's Round Pop Molds. Value = $19.99

Heirloom Porcelain Berry Basket. Value = $16.00

2 oz. Royal Rose Lavender-Lemon Simple Syrup. Value = $3.83

6 oz. Royal Rose Raspberry Simple Syrup. Value = $11.50

Sucre Shop Popsicle Sticks. Value = $10.00

Recipes for making popsicles included. 

The approximate value of this box is $61.32. I am very happy with this box because I've actually been wanting to try the pop molds but  never got around to buying one. I'm also glad they included mixers to use with it. I'm not sure why the extra popsicle sticks were included since the Zoku has built in sticks. I'm not even sure how I would use them with this. The berry basket is super cute but seems really breakable. I think instead of berries I'm going to use it as a candy dish. 

Verdict: I'm happy with this box. Next shipment is curated by Andrew Zimmern.
