August 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 first thing I noticed was the box said Cadillac on the outside. This made me thing Cadillac had something to do with the items in this box. 

The inside of the box. I was surprised that it didn't seem to have anything to do with cars. 

The theme of this box revolves around coffee. What does that have to do with Cadillac. 

ohhhh tasty treats!

Contents of the Robb Vices Box:

Joe Coffee Company The Runabout Blend. Value = $15.00

GSI Outdoor Products Java Mill. Value = $29.95

W&P Design coffee press with ceramic coffee drip lid. Value = $60.00??

Brooklyn Baking Brothers mini cake sampler. Value = $10.00

Aquiesse Passion Fruit & Citrus Luxe Tin Candle. Value = $26.00

Visionaire subscription. Value = $175.00-$295.00

Visionaire $100 off a purchase. Value = $0

LED video box for the Cadillac house. Value = $??

The total value of this box is $315.95-$435.95. This box has an amazing value but I'm not overly excited about it. Don't get my wrong the products are amazing but the whole gourmet coffee thing it lost on me. I like coffee but I'm not particular about it. I am definitely going to drink the Joe Coffee and I'm very curious about it. The portable coffee grinder is very cool but I don't grind on the go. I know people rave about french presses but again I feel like the whole experience would be lost on me. However, I am super curious about the ceramic coffee drip. It seems easy enough to use so I might give it a go. I am super stoked about the baked goods. I read the whole story about the creators behind it and they sound delicious! I didn't take a close up of the candle but it's pretty cool. It comes with matches under the lid and smells great. The LED video box is interested. It's a video about the Cadillac house but it also came with a usb cord and from what I understand you can load your own video on the device. So crazy! The most mysterious, in my opinion, item in the box is the Visionaire subscription. I read about it and I still don't really understand what it's all about. Supposedly those of this who received a Robb Vices box this month are going to receive a Visionaire subscription with a value of $175-$295. I will update this post when I receive this mysterious item. 

Verdict: I still love the Robb Vices box.
