We’ve been subscribing since the first box, but this month Fancy kindly sent me the January Food Box at no cost to review.

Fancy Food Box Review - January 2014 Cards

Each box comes with cards detailing each item included. (Somehow I always seem to end up missing a card or two).

Fancy Food Box Review - January 2014 Pistachios

The Gilded Nut Snack Co. Pistachios in Habanero Heat and Mediterranean Herb – Value $12 total

My husband and I have been looking for lots of healthy snacks to start the new year off right, and these fit the bill perfectly – no added sugar!

Fancy Food Box Review - January 2014 Tea

Kusmi Tea in BB Detox (20 Sachets) – Value $16

I’ve sampled this tea before through Birchbox and I love the flavor, so I’m thrilled to have a whole box of it. (It is supposed to be good for your skin too!)

Fancy Food Box Review - January 2014 Tea Cup

Sweater Cup and Saucer – Value $14

I usually just drink my tea out of a mug, but this set makes me want to take everything up a notch – it’s so cute! (And I’m thrilled that I can wash it in the dishwasher!)

Fancy Food Box Review - January 2014 Candy

Baru Chocolate Covered Caramel Marshmallows – Value $14

Charlito’s Cocina Campo Seco Dry Cured Italian Style Sausage – Value $15

These marshmallows look absolutely decadent, and I need a small gift this week, so these will be it! (I need to get them out of the house ๐Ÿ™‚

Verdict: This box has a retail value of a little over $70 – a very impressive value for a food box! We’ll use everything, and the marshmallows will make a great little gift, so I’m thrilled with the curation of the box as well.

What did you think of the January 2014 Fancy Food Box?

  1. I’m a knitter and love the sweater mug too…..not in my budget either ๐Ÿ™

  2. Loving this box Liz! Especially the sweater mug and nuts. Like another mentioned above, I don’t have the $ in my budget for this at the moment but I’m loving this one and the Nina Garcia and trying to figure a way to get one! In the meantime, I’ve been hunting through Homegoods and specialty stores to find similar snacks and food items.

  3. $39/month is not in my budget, but you sure did get a nice box! And the sweater cup is lovely. I read the review last month you did and you had an item from Ovenly and I had just saw a program they were in on Cooking Channel – so this box is on top of the trendy food items.

    Love reading your reviews, just trying not to get tempted to indulge, although with coupon codes I have two on the way this month ๐Ÿ™‚

    • If $39 isn’t in your budget, you better stay away from!!

  4. Oh man, I’ve heard such great things about the Kusmi tea that I hope I get it one day in my Birchbox! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. The sweater tea cup is too cute! I wonder if you they have a whole set including a sweater teapot! I need this box!


  1. Fancy Box Review – January 2014 | My Subscription Addiction - […] received the sweater tea cup set in my January Fancy Food Box, but this mug is way more practical…
