Fancy Box Food Subscription Review – Monthly Gourmet Subscription Boxes

Fancy Box Food Subscription Review - Monthly Gourmet Subscription Boxes

This is my first Fancy Food subscription box. I recently heard that The Fancy acquired Samplrs (another food discovery subscription box) so I’m curious to see how that will impact what’s in future Fancy Food boxes.

Drunken Monkey Jam – $10

Serenitea – Value $15

This loose leaf tea is organic and caffeine free. Normally at this point in the post I would complain about my ever growing tea collection thanks to subscription boxes, but I this the glass container and packaging on this tea is too sweet to complain about! Also – I can’t wait to try the Drunken Monkey Jam! It’s “sugar coated bananas with a splash of rum and a dash of lime. Try with peanut butter.” Yum!

Q Sodas in Kola and Ginger – $2 each

These might have been the highlight of the box for us. I don’t drink soda anymore, but loved the taste of each of these – they weren’t too sweet. I love that they use agave syrup – not high fructose corn syrup.

Charlito’s Cocinca Chorizo – Value $15

 

Verdict: I’m very happy with the first Fancy Food box! The value is great (approx $70) and so was the food! Plus, all these brands are new to me, and I love discovering new treats! What did you think of the first Fancy Food Box?

  1. Hello! I purchased the food box subscription for someone. What is a good way to tell/explain to them that I got them this for their birthday? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • I always gift a card and in it explain the subscription and sometimes a picture of what they can expect. Maybe gift them one food item and in the card let them know there’s much more to come? :)

  2. I thought the box was great! The biscotti was a bit hard, but loved it all! can’t wait for next month!

  3. This was my first Fancy anything, and I was really nervous about spending that much money…but this box really blew my mind. I’m so excited for the next one!

    • Yay! Glad you liked it too :)
