January Hatchery Tasting Box

Hatchery is a subscription box for small batch food products from independent makers. This is always a great way to be able to try artisan type food products without ordering in large quantities. Each month you will get 5-6 products. The price of this box is $20 a month w/shipping included. I found a deal through Gilt for half off a 12 month subscription so each box cost me $10.  

Price: $20 a month

This box is available to the US and Canada. 

The good: 

Variety: You get to try a variety of items without having to order from lots of places. 

Not just food: They also included mixers for drinks!

Info: They product a booklet with info on each product/company. 

Need a Gift: They offer 3, 6 and 12 month gift subscriptions.

Instructions: They include recipes and or uses for the products in the box. 

Need More: They have a marketplace where you can shop your box!

The not so good:

Discounts: No discounts for long term subscriptions. 

January Hatchery Box

Contents of the Hatchery Box:

2 oz. Best Friends Honey Smoked Pecan and Cinnamon Honey. Value = $2.50

1 oz. Rootz Sweet & Spicy Table Sauce. Value = $1.00

1.5 oz. White Church Co. Promiscuous Pinot Noir with Allspice & Cinnamon . Value = $3.00

10 ml Sweet is the Spice Cocoa Dulce. Value = $0.77

4 oz.? Fourth Creek Foods Sweet Red Pepper Relish. Value = $2.33

The total value of the Hatchery box is $9.60. This box had a disappointing value in my opinion. I only paid $10 for the box so it's ok for me but full price is $20. All of the products in this box are things I am definitely interested in trying. A few of these items I might save for our annual super bowl party and pair with some cheeses. Sounds a little fancy for super bowl but everyone loves cheese!

Verdict: I like the premise of this box but would like to see a higher value.
