Melissa Joulwan Quarterly Box Review #EAT01
If you aren’t familiar with Melissa Joulwan, here’ is her Quarterly mini-bio:
Melissa Joulwan is the author of two best-selling Paleo cookbooks and a healthy lifestyle blog called The ClothesMakeTheGirl.com. The theme of her boxes is eating clean, training hard, and living loud.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Melissa Joulwan for Quarterly
The Cost: $50 a box
The Products: A care package of paleo goodies plus a new recipe in each box.
Ships to: US and Worldwide.
Unlike the traditional Quarterly letters, this box came with an illustrated sheet detailing the items included.
And on the back was the recipe for Snuggle Soup!
Nikki’s Coconut Butter Honey Pecan Pie – Value $13
Pacific Organic Bone Broth Chicken with Ginger – Value $1.50
This coconut butter is SO good! It’s not overly sweet at all, but has a great flavor. Now I have to try the Pumpkin Spice flavor!
Pacific is the brand I always buy for regular chicken stock, so I know I’ll like this ginger version too!
Pure Indian Foods 100% Organic Grass-Fed Ghee – Value $12
Primal Pacs Snack Pack – Value $4
I’ve never tried Ghee since I avoid dairy, but I know it’s a very popular paleo item, and considered paleo since it is boiled down butter that removes lactose and casein. If you recommend it let me know.
These Primal Pacs were new to us, and at first glance my husband said it looked a little gross. Then he ate the pack and said it was delicious and we should get more!
Knork Paring Knife – Value $25?
I could only find this knife in a 3-piece set, so I’m estimating on the value. It’s a beautifully constructed, high-quality knife, so that’s always a welcome addition to the kitchen! (I’ve never cooked with anchovies before, but I may give these a try – everything else we’ve sampled from this box so far has been great).
Verdict: This box has a value of about $60. For a food box that’s a pretty good value – usually it’s just about breaking even. (Not sure why that’s the case with food subscription boxes, but it always seems to be the case). I think the curation of this box is great – everything I looked up has amazing reviews, and we love everything we’ve tried.
