Fancy Food Box Subscription Review – February 2014

Fancy Food Box Subscription Review - February 2014 Box

I’m a big fan of the Fancy Food Box. I think it’s of the most consistent Fancy boxes, and I often recommend it if someone is wondering which Fancy Box to start with. (Every month you can count on them to send full size gourmet food items, and usually a kitchen item).

Fancy kindly sent me this box to review.

Fancy Food Box Subscription Review - February 2014 Unzipped

Roni-Sue Beer & Caramel Pretzel Nuggets – Value $12

Unzipped Glass Bag – Value $12

I couldn’t enjoy these pretzels because I avoid dairy and gluten, but I was told they were insanely good!

Fancy Food Box Subscription Review - February 2014 Chocolate

Chocolat Modern Passion Fruit White Chocolate Bar – Value $8

NuNu Chocolates South African Amarula Ganaches – Value $8

Fortunately I got this box before Valentine’s Day – so I had lots of chocolate to gift/share!

Fancy Food Box Subscription Review - February 2014 Kale

New York Naturals Kale Chips in Sea Salt & Vinegar – Value $7.50

Lala’s Nuts Bodacious Bourbon Walnuts – Value $6

This was a very indulgent box, so the kale chips definitely seemed out of place, but I was happy to find one item I could eat! They were really good too!

Verdict: This box has a value a little over $60. Normally food boxes tend to have values equal to the cost, so I’m impressed with the value. Plus, almost all of these brands were new to us, so it was a great way to sample new gourmet brands!

What did you think of the February Fancy Food Box?

  1. I would love to buy this box off if someone! 🙂

  2. I was really disappointed in this box. It didn’t make any sense to me, as quite a few of the previous boxes were themed. My kale chips arrived as a pile of kale dust..
    I felt like this was Fancy getting rid of stock they didn’t want to pay taxes on again. For instance, the Unzipped bag had been on Fancy forever.
    When I went to look these items up on Fancy, sure enough most were no longer for sale.
    When I tried to find the Roni-Sue pretzel site, it was no longer a working site.
    This box was a big miss for me. I was surprised because I am a longtime subscriber and normally really enjoy this box.
    Maybe this months will be better.

  3. Not impressed at all. You get it free from them to sponsor but I’d be pissed if I paid $40 for that junk
