Taste Trunk Health Box Subscription Review – July 2014
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 Health 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 5-8 handpicked items from Taste Trunk’s favorite brands
Ginger Garlic Mombo Sauce – Value $6
WildEats Juniperberry & Peppercorn Rub – Value $4
I love getting olive oil in subscription boxes! I think we went through the one from the Limited Edition POPSUGAR box in a week! I always make the dressing whenever we have salads, so the blood orange olive oil will be a nice way to mix things up!
Talbott Teas Luscious Lemon Meringue – Value $9.50
I am SO excited about this cake mix! It’s gluten free and dairy free, plus it’s free of all other common allergens. And the best part is that it gets great reviews on Amazon! I’m going to have to buy their all-purpose mix too – it’s the first gluten-free dairy-free mix I’ve come across that is also sugar-free. (A lot of gluten-free mixes tend to have a lot of sugar, so this is a mini-miracle).
I’m also a little obsessed with finding new organic teas, so this lemon meringue one is perfect for me. It doesn’t have a sweet scent like I would expect with merengue in the title, but it does have a lot of citrus which I love.
Verdict: I paid $29 plus $6 shipping for this box and received about $33 worth of items. I’d like to see the value be at least the $35 I paid, so we’ll see if that improves with the next box. Value aside, I’m very happy with the contents of this box. I discovered a few great new brands, and we’ll use everything in the box. I also like that everything they included is natural and/or organic.
