Taste Trunk Review – Gourmet Food Subscription Box – August 2013
Taste Trunk has four individual subscriptions they send out each month: Gourmet, Healthy, Sweets and BBQ. This review is of the Gourmet box. (I currently subscribe to the Gourmet and Healthy Trunks).
The 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 5-10 handpicked items from Taste Trunk’s favorite brands
Each box comes with cards giving you more background on the food producers, in addition to some recipe ideas! (Taste Trunk has really great packaging and presentation – I definitely recommend it for a gift subscription!).
Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Alla Siciliana – Value $4.50
Two Snooty Chefs Kansas City Steak Seasoning – Value $8
We received the artichoke bruschetta from the same company that makes this pesto in our last Gourmet Taste Trunk – and it was amazing! I’m sure this pesto will be equally delicious.
The Jam Stand Not Just Peachy, Sriracha Jam – Value $10
Iveta Scone Mix in Apricot – Value $7.50
Hm, I wonder if this jam would go well with these scones? I love that we’re getting interesting spicy jams from Taste Trunk – but I’m not sure how to use them yet. I don’t think this Sriracha Peach jam would work in a PB&J sandwich! Any suggestions?
CC Made Caramel Sauce – Value $12
The Girl & The Fig Lavender Sea Salt – Value $4
Verdict: This August Gourmet Taste Trunk had a great value – over $45! I love discovering the new brands and flavor combinations they send my way, so I will definitely keep subscribing! What do you think of Taste Trunk?
