Taste Trunk Gourmet Subscription Box Review – Dec 2013
Taste Trunk is a monthly gourmet food subscription box. They offer 4 different types of boxes: Gourmet, Sweets, Health or BBQ. This review is of the Gourmet box.
The Subscription Box: The Gourmet Trunk from Taste Trunk
The Cost: $29 plus $5.99 shipping
The Products: Each month you will receive a new trunk with 5-10 handpicked items from Taste Trunk’s favorite brands
Each box comes with cards detailing the brands included, and the December boxes came with tiny stockings stuffed with candy!
Chau Cho! Milk Chocolate Stick – Value $3
I could not find these german cookies for sale anywhere (I gave up after a few internet searches), so these are value guesses. I had help tasting some of these items since I avoid gluten and dairy, and the feedback on these cookies is that they are an acquired taste – I think they look amazing, but apparently had a weird licorice flavor!
Herbs de Poulet – Value $6
Organic Candies – Value $2
I used this herb seasoning mix the other night for chicken, and it came out great!
Dulcet Tangy & Peppery Moroccan Sauce – Value $8
I’m really excited to try this Dulcet sauce next – it’s gluten-free and vegan, plus it’s non-GMO!
Verdict: I paid $29 plus $6 shipping for this box and received approximately $33 worth of gourmet food. (I had to guess on the value of some of the items I couldn’t find prices for, and I didn’t factor in the stocking candy, so that may be off either way by a few dollars). I would like to see the value always be higher than what I paid, but it’s pretty close this month, so no big complaints from me. So far the herbs de Poulet seasoning has been great, and I’m excited to try the Dulcet sauce next.
I really like that so many of these brands are new to me each month! What did you think of the December 2013 Gourmet Taste Trunk?
