Yummy Bazaar Full Experience April 2018 Review
There is always a pamphlet included that talks about the featured country, which is Spain.
The back has a recipe to use two of the included items to make Authentic Spanish Paella.
And of course, they go through each item that’s in the box.
Paellero Paella Seasoning with Saffron, 0.14 oz. – Buy 5 packs for $3.95
I don’t think I’ve ever had paella, but now I will get to make it myself! Moreso- I think normally when I’ve heard friends talk about it, they are talking about the vegetarian version and the recipe for this one has chicken with optional shrimp, mussels, and clams. Anyhow- this packet contains the seasonings to make paella happen with saffron, which I really like. Can’t wait to experiment!
El Avion Spanish Bomba Rice , 17.63 oz- Retail Value $5.95
The other needed ingredient that comes in the box is rice. They’ve sent this adorable cotton sack of rice to help out. This is Spanish Bomba rice which I also don’t recall ever having before. We eat a lot of rice in my house, so this will get eaten up in a flash (there will be a little extra after the paella recipe). It’s so cute that I don’t want to cut it open though!
Ines Rosales Sesame & Sea Salt Tortas, 6.34 oz. – Retail Value $4.95
Ooh, yea! These are so tasty! Each of the six 5-inch large crisps is individually wrapped in wax paper that make them look really special. Even though these are savory, there’s a bit of sugar on them as well to give them a hint of sweetness. They’re so light and crispy that they’re tasty alone but will be great with some toppings as well.
Emily Foods Quince Paste w Walnuts, 7 oz. – Retail Value $3.95
I’m not gonna lie- I was at first a little scared that this was a meat jelly product because I am not familiar with quinces and saw the word “carne”. Luckily for me, this is just a paste made from a fruit that is described online to a cross between an apple and a pear. That sounds lovely- and this also has walnut in it as well. Dipping a spoon into it- the first thing I noticed is that it’s a lot thicker than I thought it’d be. Sarah tried it with me and described it as a thick apple butter. I can see why it’s suggested as a pairing with cheese because this could easily take the place of an apricot or fig spread that is often used on a cheese board.
Espuna Dry Cured Chorizo, 3 oz. – Retail Value $5.95
I love cured meats so I was ticked to see this in the box! Even though it’s not a product of Spain (the pork is American), it uses Spanish paprika and uses the standards that began in the region of Extremadura. This package is full of thinly sliced dry-cured chorizo that would be perfect to add to a charcuterie tray full of cheeses, olives, and perhaps the quince paste! It’s a tad spicy, but not as spicy as I would have thought for a chorizo and quite oily, as expected.
El Romero Almond Turron de Alicante, 5.2 oz. – Retail Value $6.95
Mmmm- this is like an almond brittle. It’s hard when you crack it off and then softens a bit as you chew. It’s sweet with a really great nutty taste. I like this quite a bit and the full-size portion will keep me in business for a while!
Torres Black Truffle Potato Chips, 1.4 oz. – Retail Value $2.45
I’ve received these chips before and they are FANTASTIC. I am a chip addict and also happen to love truffle oil. These chips have the perfect amount of crunch, are large, and have a really deep truffle flavor. If you don’t mind tasting the truffle long after you’ve finished eating them, these are the chips for you.
Choco Late Organic Chocolate, 2.46 oz. – Retail Value $6.95
How pretty is this chocolate? I don’t think I’ve ever had a chocolate bar made with extra virgin olive oil, but I am very excited about trying it. It’s 56% cocoa which means it should be more bitter than sweet, but it’s still really smooth and creamy. The flavor is quite nice!
Verdict: I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Spain that the Yummy Bazaar Full Experience Monthly Gourmet Box took me on with eight different items (2 of which I need to make to truly experience!). There was a great balance of ingredients for a meal recipe, and salty and sweet snacks. I think they did a great job curating this one.
