June Robb Vices Box

Robb Vices is a monthly subscription box focused on exceptional products, food, accessories, etc. Each box is curated and comes with a booklet that tells the story of the items in the box. This box is for those who enjoy the finer things and appreciate the history or story behind it. I only say that because this box is not inexpensive. The price is $74.95 per month plus shipping. I subscribe to the Robb Report and very much enjoy reading it. If you subscribe to the magazine the offer a discount on the box. I researched previous boxes and liked what I saw so I subscribed.

Price: $74.95 per month plus shipping w/discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions. 

The Good:

Products: The products are high end, artisan and great quality. 

Information: The include booklet is a wealth of information on the products. 

Referral Program: Refer 3 friends and get a free box. 

Alcohol: Sometimes they include alcohol which I'm a big fan of. 

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is high for a monthly box of surprise items.

Auto-Renew. I don't care much for auto-renew especially on a box with a high price tag.  

The items come in a box with a handle. This is what it looks like when you first open it.

The total value of this box is $98.00. As you can see this box was all about salt. I know salt doesn't seem very exciting but when you start experimenting with different types of salt it can be very exciting. The booklet included recipes for salt crust scallops and a antipasto spread. I already have two salt blocks that I've used for cooking so I'm going to save this one for cold items. I've made scallops and salmon on my salt blocks and they turned out really good. You could taste the salt that absorbed in the scallops. It's safe to say with this box I'm set for salt for quite a long time. 

Verdict: I love the Robb Vices box. I can't wait to see what's in store for July.
