Rain City Box Subscription Box Review December 2015 - box

Rain City is a subscription box dedicated to bringing you the very best of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! My husband is from Oregon, so I thought we would enjoy this subscription box together!

This promotional card from BungalowBoo was also included.

Rain City Box Subscription Box Review December 2015 - board

Wine & Cheese Board by BungalowBoo – Value $10.50

This cutting and presentation board is beautiful and has a nice weight to it. I’d say (without breaking out the measuring tape) that it’s about 5″ x 10″ 1″, so it’s a good size for a nice salami.

Mt. Townsend Creamery Fromage Blanc – Value $5

Everything included in this month’s box is snacktacular, so I put together a little fancy-finger-foods-snack-your-way-to-dinner spread for the family after church on Sunday. This cheese was the winner! It is soooo gooooood. It’s kind of crumbly like feta, but spreads well, and is creamy and has just the right amount of sweetness to it. Yum!

Rain City Box Subscription Box Review December 2015 - salmon

SeaBear Smoked Salmon – Value $10

One of the first things people think when they think about the Pacific Northwest is salmon, and this box did not disappoint. I’m not a huge smoked salmon fan, but I tasted a bit and it was delicious. My husband and the boys practically inhaled this salmon! And it goes without saying we had to lock the cat out for a while.

Rain City Box Subscription Box Review December 2015 - crackers

Partners Flatbread Crackers – Value $4

These crackers were surprisingly good! I have seen a recent trend in flatbread crackers being more and more bland, and frankly, I’m against it. These crackers were tasty! Not too salty, with just a little sweetness. Perfect!

Sopressata from Olympia Provisions – Value $10

This sopressata was perfectly aged and very mild. It was a huge hit!

The Verdict: We loved our first box from Rain City Box! It gave us a great excuse to have a fancy (for us) lunch on Sunday, and I love doing fun little things like that with the family. I think their theme and curation was excellent, too. It was a lot like getting a holiday gift basket! The value of the box came to $39.50, and considering this was a mostly food box, I’m very happy with the value. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next month!

What do you think of Rain City Box?

  1. OMG! I might have to add to my family’s subscription addiction by getting this box. I grew up in the Seattle area. It would be like getting a little bit of home in a box!

  2. That is a great box. The value may not be enormous, but they’re clearly not choosing ridiculously overpriced items.

  3. How have I never heard of this box? I live in Seattle, haha!

    By the way Partners crackers are my FAVORITE.

    • Serena they are so good! Such a great discovery!

      • They can be hard to find even here! Alaska Airlines puts them in their cheese plates and I can’t get enough. 🙂

    • Serena, I was wondering the same! I live just outside of Seattle, and went into a Made in Washington store for the first time and was really impressed by all the cool stuff we have here. I got some great stocking stuffers! No salmon though.

      This box looks pretty great! I like the snacky theme. I hope they send Theo’s chocolates soon =D Chai and Bread & Chocolate are my favorite.
