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 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!
January 2014 Taste Trunk Gourmet Box Review
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!
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 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 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!
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 ($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!
