Fancy Food Box Subscription Review – May 2014
The Fancy Food Box is one of the original Fancy subscription boxes. Every month they send full size gourmet food items, and usually a kitchen item. Fancy kindly sent me this box to review.
The Subscription Box: Fancy Food Box
The Cost: $39 a month plus shipping
The Products: Gourmet and specialty food and snacks.
This month Fancy has been updating their cards to these fold out version – I like it! (They also included recipe cards for Parmesan Herbed Polenta with Scarpetta Tuscan Vodka Sauce and Grace ‘n’ Love Old World Chicken).
Grey Ghost Bakery Lemon Sugar Cookies – Value $9
Sfoglini Pasta Shop Pasta Trumpets – Value $7
These sugar cookies got rave reviews from everyone who tried them, and I love that Fancy often includes local specialty shop food from New York. This pasta from brooklyn is made with organic ingredients, and they even have a pasta of the month club!
Saveur Easy Italian – Value $13
I really like these Kale Krackers! (I should disclose that I haven’t eaten gluten or dairy in a very long time, so I may have slightly different standards than someone who is eating say cheese its?) I like that Kale is still the first ingredient, but these are different than Kale chips, which is a nice change!
Genovese Truffle Pesto – Value $8
Scapetta Tuscan Vodka Sauce – Value $7
I love how simple the ingredient list is for this Scarpetta tomato sauce. I may try a few of their other sauces – it is surprisingly difficult to find a tomato sauce at my grocery store that doesn’t have sugar as an ingredient!
Verdict: I love it when boxes have themes, and I think the Italian dinner theme of this box is fantastic. This box is full of brands that are new to us, and everything looks delicious (I only wish there were more items I could eat!). This box has a value of about $52. I find that usually food boxes don’t have incredible values compared to the cost of the box, but I’m very happy with the curation of this box, and I think the Fancy Food box is a good value especially if you want to discover new gourmet foods each month.
What did you think of the Italian dinner box?
