Fancy Food Subscription Box Review – August 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.
Each Fancy Food box comes with a card detailing each item included, and some recipe ideas.
This month there were two cards: one for pizza ingredients, and one for sweet treats!
Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Whole Grain Mix – Value $2.50
Salento Farm Pure Classic Garlic Powder – Value $7
I avoid gluten and dairy in my diet, so I was thrilled to see that this pizza mix is free of both! Plus, a lot gluten-free mixes, breads, etc. tend to have a lot of sugar in them, but this one doesn’t. And it gets great reviews! Now I just have to decide if I’ll use it to make pizza dough, or use the other recipe on the package to make cinnamon rolls!
I’m also pretty excited about this garlic powder – it’s all natural, no fillers/ anti-caking agents!
Hatch Chile Pesto -Value $10
Scarpetta Pizza Sauce – Value $8
I was so surprised to see this pesto was dairy-free! (It’s also sadly basil-free, but I think I’ll still love it). They recommend folding it into an omelet, or whisking it with lemon and olive oil to create a light salad dressing!
And I feel like this box was made for me because this pizza sauce is dairy-free, sugar-free, and the container is BPA-free!
Miss Lady Small Batch Cream Soda – Value $9
This is the most gorgeous soda bottle I’ve ever seen!
Biscotti Di Vecchio in Toasted Almond – Value $6.50
Chocolate Twist Epic Sea Salt Caramels – Value $12
I like that the theme this month is pizza and dessert! My husband will love these biscotti!
Verdict: This month’s box has a retail value of $55. Considering every single item is a food item I think it’s a great value. (Usually Fancy Food Boxes include at least one or two kitchen items). I loved the theme this month – especially because I can enjoy all the pizza making ingredients!
What do you think of the August Fancy Food Box?
