Taste Trunk Gourmet Premier Box

A couple of weeks back, Taste Trunk had a deal for 50% off their Gourmet Premier box, which I decided to get because it’s been a while since I last tried Taste Trunk. I thought it would make a good Mother’s Day gift to myself!

Saucy Mama Sweet Heat Marinade – Retail Value $6

I am going to save this for a barbecue this summer. I think it would go great with some chicken or pork with a side salad and of course, corn!

Sticky Fingers Raspberry White Chocolate Scones – Retail Value $5.99

These scones were unbelievably soft – more like biscuits. I would have liked more raspberry and white chocolate, but overall, super delicious!

Himilayan Salt Block - Retail Value $16.95

 

I’ve wanted to get a salt block for the longest time, so I am beyond thrilled to have one now. I think I want a second so I can use one for hot items and one for cold because I heard once you heat it, it loses some of its “power.”

Thoughts: The total value of this box was just over $43, but there were only 5 items, so I am wondering if maybe one of the products was missing from my box. Despite the value, I am really happy with this box and I think it made a great Mother’s Day gift to myself and I think it is a nice Mother’s Day Gift for anyone else who enjoys good food.

Taste Trunk Healthy Box Review and Coupon July 2013 – Food Subscription Box

Taste Trunk is a new food subscription box that offers different trunks for you to subscribe and discover new foods. Taste Trunk offered me a discount to try a box to review. I decided on the Healthy Trunk because I am still trying to watch my weight.


The Cost: $29 a month, including shipping

The Coupon: Use code MAVEN25 for 25% off your first box.

The Box: Taste Trunk offers four boxes, Gourmet, Healthy, Sweet and BBQ. You can switch your theme at any time. Trunks may be added or change down the line.

I really loved the presentation of the box. It has a touch of romanticism that I appreciate.

Inside the bag on top were the product cards. I really appreciate it when a company takes the time to explain more about the product and especially about the people who make the food.

I was so happy opening this box. I could not believe how much was in here!

Honey Sticks – Value $2.50 for 5

I loved the variety. So far, we tried the darkest one which is a chocolate flavor.

Peeled Snacks Apple Clusters – Value $2.50
Nibnaks Apple Cosmo – Value $2.50

Vigilant Eats Superfood Oat-Based Cereal in Goji Cacao – Value $4.99
Vigilant Eats Superfood Oat-Based Cereal in Coconut Maple Vanilla – Value $4.99

I tried the Coconut Maple Vanilla and on its own, it is not my favorite. I ended up adding a few things to it. I cannot wait to try the Goji Cacao though!

Teatulia Green Tea – Value $7.50
Dang Coconut Chips – Value $3.50

I’ve had the Dang Coconut Chips before and they are incredible. I squealed when I saw them in this box! These are always one of the first to go because I put them in everything!

Thoughtful Food Giddy Up & Go Granola Notoriously Nutty – Value $1.50
Thoughtful Food Giddy Up & Go Granola Seriously Seedy – Value $1.50

My sister had the Notoriously Nutty and she said it was one of the best granolas she’s ever had. I cannot wait to try the Seriously Seedy granola!

San Franola Granola – Value $2.25
Nunes Farms Sweet Chipotle Almonds – Value $1
Nunes Farms California Crunchies in Maui Onion Almonds – Value $1

The San Franola was one of my favorite granola so far. Something about it reminded me of a gingerbread man. I think I will need to serve this at a Christmas party this year.

Both almonds were great. I loved the sweet, spicy contrast and the onion goodness of the almonds. They were addictive!

Thoughts: I received over $35 of products and everything was great! I loved my Taste Trunk. I think I will have to try the other boxes now to see how they all compare. My only note for them would be that although I loved every product, I could have done with a bit more variety – there seemed to be a lot of granola in this box.
