Rain City Box Subscription Box Review – December 2015
Rain City is a subscription box dedicated to bringing you the very best of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! My husband is from Oregon, so I thought we would enjoy this subscription box together!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription: Rain City Box
The Cost: $34.99 / month
The Products: Items from small businesses in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, centered around a theme
Ships to: US
This is the info card that was included with this package. It details the items included this month, plus gives a bit of the back story on the businesses that provided them. This month’s theme is “PNW Holiday Gift Box.”
This promotional card from BungalowBoo was also included.
Wine & Cheese Board by BungalowBoo – Value $10.50
This cutting and presentation board is beautiful and has a nice weight to it. I’d say (without breaking out the measuring tape) that it’s about 5″ x 10″ 1″, so it’s a good size for a nice salami.
Mt. Townsend Creamery Fromage Blanc – Value $5
Everything included in this month’s box is snacktacular, so I put together a little fancy-finger-foods-snack-your-way-to-dinner spread for the family after church on Sunday. This cheese was the winner! It is soooo gooooood. It’s kind of crumbly like feta, but spreads well, and is creamy and has just the right amount of sweetness to it. Yum!
SeaBear Smoked Salmon – Value $10
One of the first things people think when they think about the Pacific Northwest is salmon, and this box did not disappoint. I’m not a huge smoked salmon fan, but I tasted a bit and it was delicious. My husband and the boys practically inhaled this salmon! And it goes without saying we had to lock the cat out for a while.
Partners Flatbread Crackers – Value $4
These crackers were surprisingly good! I have seen a recent trend in flatbread crackers being more and more bland, and frankly, I’m against it. These crackers were tasty! Not too salty, with just a little sweetness. Perfect!
Sopressata from Olympia Provisions – Value $10
This sopressata was perfectly aged and very mild. It was a huge hit!
The Verdict: We loved our first box from Rain City Box! It gave us a great excuse to have a fancy (for us) lunch on Sunday, and I love doing fun little things like that with the family. I think their theme and curation was excellent, too. It was a lot like getting a holiday gift basket! The value of the box came to $39.50, and considering this was a mostly food box, I’m very happy with the value. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next month!
