Gourmet Taste Trunk Subscription Box Review - July 2014 CC Made

CC MADE Rosemary Caramel Sauce – Value $5

CC MADE Pistachio Nut Popcorn – Value $8

We’ve received CC MADE popcorn before in subscription boxes – and my husband loves the pistachio flavor!

Gourmet Taste Trunk Subscription Box Review - July 2014 Liquid Smoke

Amphora Premium White Balsamic Vinegar in Cranberry Pear –  Value $7

Lazy Kettle Brand All Natural Hickory Liquid Smoke – Value $5

1849 Tri-Tip Meat Marinade – Value $5

Two food items I always like to see in subscription boxes: Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil! I’m excited to try out this Cranberry Pear balsamic vinegar the next time I make salad dressing!

Verdict: I paid $29 plus $6 shipping for this box and received about $30 worth of items. I would have liked the value to be a little higher, but I am pleased with the brands they included. (Though I think it would have been better to only include one CC MADE item so there could be 5 brands in this box).

Do you subscribe to any of the Taste Trunk boxes? What did you think of the July box?

  1. I subscribed to their gourmet & BBQ boxes & there SO many repeat items between boxes! What REALLY bugs me about them is they poorly packaged my last BBQ box (thin bubble wrap with all the glass side-by-side) & the hot sauce exploded all over. They told me I needed to bring the broken glass to the post office & give Taste Trunk a receipt the post office gives.. Are you kidding?!? I took pictures but that wasn’t good enough for them. Ridiculous.

  2. I’ve on the
    Hunt for a food subscription box and after checking your reviews none of then convince me. I rather spare $30 or 40 monthly and go to the gourmet market and spend it randomly.

    I do thank you for all your excellent reviews which help us decide if we should commit to any of the subs.

  3. I got the same box and was happy with it except for the value. I do wish they had put another item in it or a higher value. The items were awesome. I just started this in June so this was my second box and so far I’m happy. I will see if they raise the value up some. Since I have to pay for the shipping it would be nice that the value would be what you pay for it.
