Quirky Citrus Spritzer – Value $5

Bobbysue’s Nuts! – Value $3.49

Bobbysue’s Nuts are gluten and dairy free! Also, they are addictive – I highly recommend them!

Zoe’s Chocolate Co. The Pretzel Bar – Value $7.50

Dave’s Coffee All Natural Coffee Syrup – Value $10.99

I was thrilled to see this Coffee Syrup in the box – I’ve seen it a few times on Fab, but it was always only available in bulk, so I didn’t want to make a big purchase without trying it first. I can’t wait to try it drizzled over ice cream!

Divine Brine Pickle Relish – Value $4

Cinco Jotas 100% Pure Iberico Breed Acorn Fed Pork Shoulder Ham – Value $22.50

While searching for a price on this ham, I read a few reviews – this ham is apparently world-famous and amazing!

I haven’t tried it yet – I noticed on the back of the package it’s supposed to stay refrigerated. I immediately put it in the fridge, but now I’m wondering if it is ok to eat after it’s been in transit?

Verdict: I’m really happy with this box – it’s full of over $60 worth of top-quality food products! What do you think of Fancy Food Box?

  1. Use code 20off15 and get 20$ off your first box!

  2. Hi – I can’t wait to try this box. Put my order in today based on your review. I also tried the coupon code but it did not work for me 🙁

  3. I tried to order my first Food Box, but the coupon 25OFF7 has expired. I tried using an 8 and then 9, but that made it invalid. Do you perhaps have another code? Thanks!

    • I’m looking for a code too! any luck?

  4. This box looks great and oddly enough, I think my favorite would be the Harissa.

    Just curious, is there a different between the Tyler Florence Fancy Box and this one you’ve reviewed in this post? Are they the same box or a different subscription? Thanks in advance!

    • They are different subscriptions – hopefully the Tyler Florence Fancy Box is just as good as the Fancy Food Box!

  5. In Rhode Island coffee syrup is very popular and they just put it in milk and have “coffee milk”(think of saying it with a Boston-like accent ;). It’s yummy, enjoy!

  6. I received the same items in my box today. This is my first food box, and I was incredibly pleased! The coffee syrup is amazing, I’m making caramelized carrots with it tomorrow! I really couldn’t ask for more from this box, it delivered a great range of product.

    • Yay! Glad to hear you like it too 🙂

  7. I thought of the same thing with the meat! Mine’s in the fridge now. I tried a little of the coffee syrup with milk. Very sweet. Thought about using it to make a tiramisu.. 🙂

  8. Oh my…I didn’t realize that the ham had to be refrigerated! It wasn’t packed with ice and there was no note to put it in the fridge 🙁 I contacted CS to see if it’s ok to eat…we’ll see what they say.

    • Thanks – let me know what they say!

      Liz

      • They finally got back to me…they didn’t give me a clear yes or no answer but said if I’m not comfortable eating it that they would either send me a replacement product or a gift card.

  9. I can’t wait to get mine, I have been wanting to try the coffee syrup too. I don’t think mine ships till the last week of the month though 🙁
