Every month, this company chooses a charity to share in the proceeds from each box, and this month the charity is the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. The letter this month said “For every $1 donated they are able to distribute enough food for 4 meals to hungry children, seniors and families. LA Food Bank proudly serves more than 320,000 people per month…”
Eat Feed Love always packages their boxes with extreme care. This month, there were a lot of packing materials to cushion the glass items and each glass item was individually wrapped. I appreciate the attention they dedicate to ensuring each box arrives safely!
This box is themed for Saint Patrick’s Day, and I think they did excellent with the curation (as always).
This is a huge bottle of Bloody Mary mix! The mix is gluten and high fructose corn syrup free. I am not the best person to judge the mix, since I have never actually had a Bloody Mary, but the taste was excellent! They recommend adding it to beer, or using it as a marinade for chicken in addition to using it in a Bloody Mary cocktail.
O.G. Hickory Jerky – Righteous Felon – $10.00
I gave this to my husband to try, and he said it’s the best he’s had. The bag is 2 oz, so this is pretty expensive beef jerky!
Bob’s Red Mill – Caraway Seeds – $4.39
To my knowledge, I’ve never tried caraway seeds. I’m sure they’ve been in some food that I’ve eaten at some point, but I have no recollection of them! After doing some research online, it looks like they’re a pretty polarizing ingredient!
Spice Station – Arrowroot Powder – $1.50
I’ve never used arrowroot powder before, but I am looking forward to learning how to use it! EFL includes recipes every month, and there are a two that uses this: Irish Stew and Shepherd’s Pie. I think I might make the Shepherd’s pie vegetarian and try this for St. Patrick’s Day!
I am amassing quite a selection of specialty mustards from subscription boxes! Since I love mustard, I’m always happy to get another. This is a really interesting and more complex mustard! The horseradish really adds something special to the mustard – I like it!
Growing up, my Dad always ate his french fries with salt and malt vinegar. I grew to love it as well, and while I don’t always eat my fries with vinegar, I do still love to add it occasionally. This salt is totally awesome, and I am going to love using this with my fries. The flavor is light, but it would be awesome on any kind of potato! EFL includes recipes for mustardy gravy, french fries, aioli, and more that use this, so it should be used up quickly!
Verdict: I think this is a fun box from Taste Club. Everything in this box was also accompanied by a recipe (except the beef jerky, which I understand). I think that is great! I enjoy getting new culinary products, but I also enjoy having a few recipes on hand that I can experiment with first. The value of this shipment is about $41.58, which is about what I’ve come to expect from Taste Club.
What do you think of this month’s box?
