Each box comes with a letter detailing each item in the box. This month’s theme is “Relaxing Snacks for the Afternoon.”
Campania del Montale Balsamic Vinegar Jelly (110 gr.) – Value $14.50
This was a new product for me and it was delicious. The balsamic jelly has a smooth jelly-like consistency with the vinegary bite of balsamic. It was a dark rich color and tasted wonderful spread on a slice of aged Irish cheddar.
Amarena di Cantiano Morello Cherries in Syrup (11.64 oz.) – Value $16.50
These sour cherries in syrup are divine. It is recommended to spoon this over ice cream, I think I’ll try it over plain Greek yogurt next time I have some in the house. The cherries can also be served on pannacotta or stirred into cocktails. They have a cherry taste with a slight almond flavor due to the almond oil in the ingredients.
Atrium Artisanal Tarrallini (8.8 oz.) – Value $6.50
I love tarrali and frequently buy fennel or chili flavored ones from our local Italian market. They’re typically very hard (like biscotti) and much larger. These mini ones are perfect for snacking and have a much gentler crunch like a normal cracker or breadstick. The flavor was light and pleasant. My daughter loved them too in her lunchbox with some sliced cheese.
La Via del Tea Fior Di Zagara (3.17 oz.) – Value $15.25
This loose tea is made with black tea and orange flowers. You can smell the citrusy orange as soon as you open up the tin. I need to get a loose tea steeper so I can brew some soon.
Verdict: This was my first Bravo Box and I was happy with every single item that was sent. I haven’t tried the tea yet, but I love citrus and black tea so I’m sure I will enjoy it. All the other items were delicious and it was fun to find products in the box I have never seen or tried before. The value of this month’s box is $52.75 which is above the cost of the box but doesn’t completely cover shipping costs. This is not unusual for gourmet food boxes. One thing I was confused by was the lack of olive oil in the box. I was under the impression from their website that each box comes with an olive oil and mine did not. According to the letter, there would be a recipe for a cocktail using the sour cherries in syrup. My box had no such recipe. I think that because Bravo Box is a newer subscription they just have some kinks to work out. But as far as the variety and quality of products sent I am pleased.
