Dang Coconut Chips – Value $6
UBONS BBQ Bloody Mary Mix – Value $10
I love these coconut chips from Dang! They are great for a yogurt topping or just straight out of the bag! I’m also not much of a bloody mary drinker – but I definitely want to at least try this BBQ blend!
Bodum Brazil French Press – Value $20
This is one of those items I’ve always wanted to try, but for some reason just never bought. The only way i was going to own a french press was if it showed up in a subscription box! I love that it’s dishwasher safe, and a nice and simple alternative to days when I don’t want a keurig cup of coffee!
Papabubble for Fancy Candies – Value $15?
Umami Dust – Value $10
These Pappabubble candies are actually custom Fancy candies – they have the fancy logo and the word fancy on them!
This Umami Dust is new to me, but from what I’m reading it works in just about any recipe. And it doesn’t have any added salt. Here are the ingredients: Tomato powder, garlic, lemon peels, anchovy powder, spices natural lemon flavor, balsamic vinegar, porcini mushroom powder.
It sounds like some sort of miracle seasoning – I’m excited to try it!
J&M Original Cheese Straws – Value $7
J&M Original Lemon Cookie Straws – Value $4
My boyfriend had high hopes for these cheese straws – but he said they were just OK. Oh well!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70 – definitely one of the highest value Fancy Food boxes I’ve received – I’m thrilled! We paid $39 plus shipping for this box, so I definitely feel like we got a great value this month. I’m most excited about trying out the french press and the Umami dust!
