March 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 total value of this box is $110.00. I love the Robb Vices box but was a little bummed when I opened this box. I'm not a fan of hot sauces or ghost chiles or anything spicy. After rummaging around the box though I did find some cool stuff to try and of course alcohol is always appreciated. I was scared to try the habanero jerky but surprisingly it wasn't too spicy. I was also apprehensive to try the cheesy puffs. At first they were ok but the spice sneaks up on you. The booklet this month came with recipes for the alcohol but I think I want to try this little guys straight up to really experience the flavor. I'm a big fan of cilantro and this sauce says it's mild. 

Verdict: This Robb Vices box wasn't my favorite but it had some new things to try.
