I included a picture of the packed box to show you how carefully Eat Feed Love packages everything.  Every glass item is wrapped in bubble wrap, taped shut, and then tissue paper.  Then there are packing peanuts and other packing materials in the box to ensure that the items don’t shift during shipping. I’ve received multiple broken things from shipping mishaps, so I appreciate the care put into packaging this box!

Every month, this company chooses a charity to share in the proceeds from each box, and this month the charity was Mercy Ships Canada, “a mobile health-care initiative housed on a ship and dedicated to providing primary health and surgical services to some of the world’s most impoverished people.”  The ship is currently anchored in Madagascar, which inspired one of the product picks!

Olive the Senses – Tuscan Herb Infused Olive Oil – $10.00

This olive oil is fantastic. As soon as I opened the lid, I could smell the herby aroma.  It is so good, there’s no way I will waste it cooking with it.  This is going on salads, with bread as a dipper (it’s good enough alone, with no vinegar), or as a drizzle on top of pizza.   

Olive the Senses – Cranberry Pear White Balsamic Vinegar – $10.00

At the risk of sounding dramatic in this review, this balsamic is also phenomenal.  I can definitely pick out the cranberry and pear flavoring, and it’s almost good enough to drink straight – not that I would waste it that way!  I am imagining all of the salads I can eat this with…

Olive the Senses – Vermont Maple Dark Balsamic Vinegar – $10.00

This bottle leaked a bit during transport, but since the packaging of each item is so top notch it didn’t get all over the box!  This vinegar smells exactly like maple syrup, and the taste is so complex!  I can imagine this going wonderfully with the roasted strawberries I make as a topping for ice cream.

Caramoomel Dulce de Leche Caramel Spread – $6.00

As soon as I took this dulce de leche out of the box, my husband latched on to it.  His family makes a special cake with dulce de leche as the frosting, and he immediately started thinking about how quickly he could make a cake to dump this on!  This is a little more liquidy than the dulce de leche you can typically buy at the store, but the flavor is so much better.  It’s smooth, sweet, and everything a caramel should be.  

Mrs. Jones Jams Cranberry Sauce – $7.00

This cranberry sauce tastes just like the holidays to me!  The cloves, orange peel, cinnamon, and star anise included with the cranberries make this stand out from the typical canned stuff that usually makes the rounds at holiday gatherings!

Edmond Fallot Green Peppercorn Dijon Mustard – $6.89

I am a huge fan of this mustard.  My culinary vocabulary falls short of describing it accurately, so here is how the Eat Feed Love website describes it: “Infused with green peppercorns, it offers a strong and hot flavor that is perfect for roasted meats, with a bright and spicy character that is sure to impress.”  I tried it with eggs instead of meat, and it was awesome. 

Earth’s Herbal Holiday Season Herbal Spice Tea – $1.00?

This tea is wonderfully spicy and warm tasting!  Perfect for this time of year.  I received 1 tea bag of this loose leaf tea.  I like that they made tea bags for those people that may not have a tea infuser.  

Sirene Dark Chocolate Noir Tasting Pair – $8.50

This is the product pick that was inspired by the Mercy Ship’s current location in Madagascar.  This company makes bean-to-bar chocolate, and this particular bar has 73% cacao content.  I am not the biggest fan of dark chocolate because it can be bitter, but wow…I could eat this chocolate all day.  It actually tastes slightly fruity to me, there is no bitterness, and it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet.  I could get used to this!

The verdict:  I loved this Taste Club shipment!  Everything was so fitting for the holidays and would make any foodie rejoice.  Eat Feed Love includes recipe cards with every shipment.  The recipes for this month all look fabulous, offering opportunities to try the products included.  I do wish that they had included more than 1 recipe for the maple balsamic vinegar since that one is stumping me a little.  The recipe they included was for a ham, which will definitely be made the next time we have company (with only 1 meat eater in the house, it’s not practical to make a whole ham for him!).  

The value of this box is about $59.39.  I am really impressed with the value of this box, the quality of the items sent, and as I’ve already said the careful packaging.  The letter included by Emily is always so great to read, as she explains the charity they’ve chosen for the month and includes suggestions on how to use the items.  

What did you think of this month’s Taste Club shipment?

Bekki first discovered subscription boxes in 2014 and they quickly took over her life! (Not quite, but pretty close.) She started with POPSUGAR Must Have, then moved to Little Lace Box, Birchbox, Hamptons Lane…the rest was history. Her favorite product find is Beekman 1802 Fudge (so, so good) and her favorite boxes are Birchbox and Hamptons Lane…but she’s always looking for a new subscription to try!

  1. Bekki, are the olis and vinegars full size? The bottles look different from those you linked to and I can’t tell the size from the photo but they look lower than 200 ml.

    • The bottles in the box are only 100ml, so half a full size. $5 value.

  2. I love flavor infused vinegars!!!! I placed an order today in hopes of receiving this box. For $20 I’m sure I’ll be happy regardless.

  3. This box looks awesome! Great review. I hope the company continues to send you boxes to review. After one more awesome review like this I will join for sure.
