Hatchery Tasting Box Subscription Review – July 2014
The Hatchery Tasting Box is a brand new subscription that sends you gourmet condiments, sauces, spreads, etc. each month.
Hatchery kindly sent me this box to review.
The Subscription Box: Hatchery Tasting Box
The Cost: $25 a month
The Products: Each box includes a hand selected combination of ingredients, such as: condiments, spreads, cooking sauces, jams, honeys, syrups, oils, vinegars, salts, spices, seasonings and specialty baking ingredients.
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included, and profiles the makers behind the items. (I was also happy to see that on every product they include dietary info like: gluten-free, peanut-free, vegan, no sugar added, etc.)
Diane’s Sweet Heat Mango Habanero Jam – 1.5 oz Value $2
Saucy Sister Virgin Vanilla Bean Salted Caramel Sauce – 2 oz Value $2.75
This Mango Habanero Jam is spicy! A little goes a long way so I was able to use this jar to marinate our chicken dinner!
Arette Tea Seed Oil – 1 oz Value $1
Empire Mayonnaise White Truffle – 1 oz Value $2
We’ve tried Empire Mayonnaise before, and I really like that their flavors are noticeable but not overpowering. I think I might try this mayo with the Hatchery recipe for Tempura String Beans with White Truffle Mayo dip!
Whole Spice Paella Spice Mix – Value $5?
Bill’s Best Original BBQ Sauce – 2 oz? Value $2?
I was planning on making vegetable paella after seeing a recipe in a magazine, so this spice will cut out a few steps for me!
Verdict: I think this is a great subscription for anyone who loves to cook. I love that Hatchery has so many recipes featuring all of the items in the box. This isn’t a high value box – I think it’s about $15 worth of items, but it is a great way to try out new products without committing to full-size versions. I would like to see them get the value a little higher though.
What do you think of Hatchery?
