December 2013 Taste Trunk Gourmet Box Review

December Taste Trunk - Sweets
December Taste Trunk – Sweets

Biscotti Bari Lemon Poppyseed ($2.00) I am saving this for a snackmergency! I love lemon poppyseed!

Belfine Chau’Cho! ($2) Have to love Hot Chocolate on a stick for a snow day emergency! Wish these were easier to find in the US because they are super cute!

Leupoldt Lebkuchen ($3) My husband and I loved these gingerbread-esque treats with flavors of almonds, candied fruits, chocolate, and spice! They are like a spongey spice cookie baked right on a wafer base (invented by German monks reusing unconsecrated communion wafers). It was weird at first and now we are addicted! Looks like Taste Trunk no longer has a shop, which is a bummer, because I might have purchased more of these!

Two Snooty Chefs Spicy Sedona Chocolate Bar ($5)  Yum! Chipotle base of flavor with cilantro, lime, perhaps cinnamon too? One of my fave chocolates ever! I am going to have to hunt down more of their other flavors.

Dulcet Tangy & Peppery Moroccan Sauce ($8.00) My husband and I love cooking international cuisine and having a sauce does make it easier. I am thinking this would be great on beef strips though chicken and veggies would be yummy too. This definitely has a North African flavor to it with turmeric, cumin, and cinnamon. I may even pair it with some lentils.

Gourmet Temptations Spicy Cider Bourbon Glaze ($8.00) Darn, we just made a ham! I will probably end up glazing some meats and veggies with it or using it for a dipping sauce! I try to use every item in my Taste Trunk by the time I get the next one so we will find something fun for this rich and sweet sauce.

I really love how Taste Trunk‘s December box is sweet and spicy! I think it’s the perfect pairing and we received tastes from all over the world. A delicious (natural & gourmet) Merry Christmas!

    Nice box. I did the BOGO boxes for Gourmet and BBQ. I wonder if this will be one they get. I guess we shall see. 🙂

    For $36/month, you received $28 worth of product?

      Oh I totally forgot to finish my review before I posted. Some of the prices are just the cost converted into US dollars and it doesn’t take into account the cost of importing. The Lebkuchen and the hot chocolate thing are imported items and the value isn’t really that low if you are looking at retail prices. I’m betting to buy the Lebkuchen it would be around 8 dollars by itself. I also have free shipping because I was grandfathered in. Thank you for pointing that out. I had the post as a draft and I got busy with the kids and couldn’t recall why I hadn’t posted it yet.

    These all look amazing! Lebkuchen is a favorite around our household!
