It’s basically food week here on MommySplurge! All the food boxes came at once! I was excited to see Taste Trunk because it’s fun to work all the items into my meal planning for the month. Taste Trunk is a food subscription box with all natural items inside and you can get gourmet, sweet, health, and BBQ. I’ve only ever gotten gourmet, because that’s what I prefer.  It ships in an outer flat rate Priority Mail box, which is good, because it’s often quite heavy. Today’s was sooo heavy I was curious to get inside to see what was so heavy!

The Subscription: Taste Trunk
The Description: Taste Trunk offers 4 different monthly trunks: Gourmet, Sweet, Health, and BBQ. Each trunk has 5-10 products.
The Price: $29 per month + $5.99 shipping
The Coupon: Put my name in the “special instructions” box at checkout (Brandy O’Grady) and use coupon code Splurge25 for 25% off!

So pretty for January!

I like the little Taste Trunk seals and the packaging. The photo is different every month.

As soon as I saw the information cards I knew what made the box so heavy this month!

Great Packing

Taste Trunk packages its box very well. All glass items are bubblewrapped. And I love that there are no squigglies (usually, I think maybe sometimes there are). I do get tired of too many squiggles.

Yummy! I was excited to rip everything open and see each item. I will use everything.

Kozlowski Farms
Kozlowski Farms

Kozlowski Farms Raspberry & Roasted Chipotle Grilling & Dipping Sauce ($6.95) This will be so great to fancy up some chicken! I might follow the suggestion and swirl it with some cream cheese. I love a little sweet heat.

Kozlowski Farms Apple Butter ($6.25) I love apple butter and I was excited to see this is a no sugar added variety!

Sticky Fingers Scone Mix - Wild Blueberry
Sticky Fingers Muffin Mix – Wild Blueberry

Sticky Fingers Muffin Mix – Wild Blueberry ($6) Psyched would be an understatement. I saw this mix the other week and wanted it. Now it is mine! I may make muffins with my daughter as one of our craft projects while my son is in preschool!

Gnocchi
Gnocchi

Cuchina & Amore Potato Gnocchi ($5) We’ve seen this brand before in Taste Trunk and I was happy to see it again – all the items from them have been high quality. This one is for OMG WHAT DO I MAKE FOR DINNER night 🙂

Himalayan Salt Block
Himalayan Salt Block

Himalayan Salt Block ($17) So excited to see this! I love Himalayan Salt and I’m excited to try it. I still haven’t tried mine from Bespoke Post but I kind of want to do it when my husband is around. I even bought the burner ring for it, so we will be ready to go to test these puppies out next week. I was impressed that this was in the box.

I came up with a $35 value for my January Taste Trunk! I could be a little off on the salt – I didn’t weigh it and that price was for a 5 pound brick, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same thing. We will absolutely use up everything in this box and I love having some ideas delivered straight to me that I have to use up!

    I’m so excited that they sent a salt block this month. As I posted in the group I forgot to cancel so my dad and step mom are getting this and the BBQ box this month too. I had looked at Bespoke back when they had the salt block and thought it would be great for him so glad he’s getting one this time. So fun. It all looks so yummy.

    Oh, I just noticed that you received a muffin mix from Sticky Fingers! I’ve yet to try their muffin mixes – I thought it was a scone mix and I was getting all jealous! LOL

    I got my 1st Taste Trunk yesterday! I chose the “Health” trunk. I received the same apple butter that you got, artichoke bruschetta, 18-bean soup mix, creole seasoning and perhaps another item…I can’t remember. Overall, not a bad box!
    I’m kind of jealous that you got the Sticky Fingers scone mix. I love them and I have tried pretty much every scone flavor they make and love them all! They sell them at my local Home Goods and I now I need to go and buy some. 😀
