Yummy Bazaar Full Experience June 2018 Review
Yummy Bazaar just moved warehouses, so June shipped out a little late for those who may have noticed. Hopefully, they’ll be back on track this month so we should receive July soon (they normally start shipping around the 15th)!
I’ll be honest. At first, when I saw that this month was USA I made a sour face. “I live here, that’s not very exciting”, I said to myself. Keep reading, because I will eat those words.
The back has a recipe for the included fiesta dip to serve with the also included bagel chips.
And of course, they go through each item that’s in the box.
Terrapin Ridge Farms Fiesta Dip Mix, 1 oz. – Retail Value $4.50
I haven’t gotten a chance to try this dip yet because I need to buy sour cream and mayo, but it comes with 2 packets to make. Each packet contains a spice mix of sea salt, chili pepper, dehydrated onion, paprika, and garlic. Those all sound fantastic to me, so I’m excited to check it out! It says it’s great with potato chips, pita, or….
Spielman Bagels Herb & Salt Bagel Chips, 5 oz. – Retail Value $5.95
…these bagel chips! Truth be told, these are insanely good on their own, but I’ve also dipped them in kalamata hummus. I love bagels, and these chips are the perfect crunchiness and have an amazing flavor. I seriously cannot get enough of them and my only complaint is that my hand gets stuck in the bag.
JB’s Best Tequila Infused Salsa in Mango Pineapple, 11 oz. – Retail Value $5.95
Wow- there are so many flavors listed on the front of this jar. Pineapple! Mint! Mango! Tequila! My head is spinning. I can be a little picky about salsa and normally don’t reach for anything with sweet fruit in it, but I took one for the team, dear readers, just for you. While this is sweeter than I normally like, the little kick it has toned it down for me and made me pause. This is quite good! You know who would really love this though? My Dad! I think I’ll be sharing it with him.
Vino de Milo’s Balsamic & Olive Oil Salad Dressing, 12 oz. – Retail Value $5.95
Salads are usually just vehicles for dressing, in my opinion. There were some variations with this item as I could have received a different dressing OR a BBQ sauce from JB’s (who made the salsa above). I’m glad I got what I did because I’d use dressing more than BBQ sauce (I have a bunch from other food sub boxes right now) and I like balsamic in general. Unfortunately, this one seems much too vinegary for my tastes. I kind of can’t even take in any flavors other than the balsamic vinegar used (and it has Chianti wine as well). Ah well, that’s a bummer. Maybe someone else at MSA HQ will like this.
Righteous Felon “Chepotle” Chipotle Spiced Beef & Pork Stick, 1 oz. – Retail Value $2.45
My word, this is probably one of the tastiest meat sticks I have ever had. It has a mix of beef and pork and has quite a spicy kick from the habanero included. It also has something that I can’t put my finger on that makes it really scrumptious. Is it celery juice? I love celery. I don’t know what it is, but I am way into it and would eat 10 more.
Jacobsen Salt Co. Hand-Harvested Pure Flake Sea Salt, 4 oz. – Retail Value $9.90
I don’t know what it is about fancy salt, but I love it. This salt is harvested from Netarts Bay in Oregon and I can’t wait to use it in my latest meal kit recipes! The salt itself is made up of nice chunky flakes so it just looks super gourmet sitting with my other spices.
Copper Cow Coffee Pour Over Vietnamese Coffee Kit – Retail Value $12.95
Holy heck, this is awesome. I make pour-over coffee at my house already and also happen to love Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. One may argue “Is this a product of the USA?” well, no. I mean, the company is, but it’s Vietnamese coffee, so… I’m just going to say “who cares” because it’s so good! I normally make my coffee black, but if you’d had it with condensed milk before, you’ll know what a treat it really is. The coolest part about this kit is that it comes with 5 single serve packets of coffee and the condensed milk. That means you can use them while camping or someplace like work where you may not have a whole set up but have access to boiling water. The coffee pouch is genius and I’m really impressed with the design and how well it stays on the mug. Simply cut the pouch open and place it on your mug (as shown above, and pour your hot water through it. I personally like to have the condensed milk in the bottom already, but the directions say to add as much as you’d like to the coffee after. My only complaint is that I wish it made a larger amount. Really tasty though! I used these up in less than a week and would definitely purchase these again.
Surprise! McVitie’s Hobnobs Cookies – Retail Value $5.58
Just by the name, I can tell these aren’t a product of the USA and are in fact from the UK. That’s ok because they are a little surprise bonus AND happen to be super yummy. These rolled oat cookies or “biscuits” totally taste like peanut butter to me but apparently contain no peanuts. Just rolled oats, whole wheat flour, sugar, palm oil, leavening, and salt. So tasty with a cup of coffee or tea! This is a nice full-size pack that should last me a while.
Verdict: Even though I scoffed at the “USA” theme this month, it ended up being hands down my favorite Yummy Bazaar Full Experience Box to date! Everything in the box this month felt really well-curated and fancy! It’s hard for me to pick a favorite among the coffee, bagel chips, and meat stick, but I liked almost everything in here. The dressing was the only thing I didn’t love and I still need to make the fiesta dip but I have high hopes for it. This month I received 8 full-size gourmet food items for $39.95 that have a retail value of $53.23.
