You may remember that I decided last month I should eat everything with cream cheese, and I totally did. I can’t tell you how many great meals I had with crackers, cream cheese, the wonderful chutneys and jams, and a piece of fruit!

May 2014 Taste Trunk Gourmet Box Review


When I pulled out the cards I realized there were only 4, and I was totally confused. But I got super excited at seeing Lillie’s Q again!IMG_4458

Still 5 items, one didn’t need a card!


Gourmet Village Cooking Essentials Provence Seasoned Sea Salt ($5.99) I love salt! One of my children recently added a bunch of iodized salt to one of my cellars of kosher salt, and then transferred it all back the other day, so I have a fresh salt cellar waiting for some unique salt!


Lillie’s Q Barbeque Sauces & Rubs Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce ($8.00)  While I probably would have preferred another bottle of Alabama white sauce (seriously the best in the world, go buy some), this is also great. I won’t be mixing it with greens (I can’t stand them), but I’m kind of a fool for vinegar. Vinegar bbq sauce, vinegar anything. Because there’s so much of this I’ll probably make pulled pork, as suggested on the information card!


Gourmet Village Lemon Dill Dip & Whisk ($7.50) and Gourmet Village Classic Dip Bowl & Spreader ($5.99) I love dip mixes! I could give this set as a gift but I’ll probably keep it – I love how the bowl holds 2.5 cups, which if you like making dip mixes, you will know is the perfect size to mix and hold a dip!


Torie & Howard Blood Orange & Honey Candy ($2.99) Missed adding some candy to my last subscribe & save. I’d still like to sample the grapefruit flavor.  These candies remind me of my favorite Cavendish & Harvey candy (which are powdered, not wrapped).  I added this assortment to my next Amazon subscribe & save order!

I loved the May Taste Trunk and I am always happy to see the great variety from box to box! Last month there were several sauces, and none this month, which is great, because I’m still working on them. I really rely on this box for kitchen inspiration now. I love the brands that Taste Trunk selects!
