Taste Trunk is a monthly food/snack subscription that offers 4 different themed boxes (“trunks”) to choose from: “Sweet Trunk”, “Health Trunk”, “Gourmet Trunk”, and “BBQ Trunk”. (If you’re not sure which one to try, there’s an option on their website to switch trunks whenever you want.) I always stick with the Health one, since I assume I’ll have a better chance at getting vegan-friendly items in the box. (Usually it works out in my favor.) Boxes are $29/month.
Taste Trunk as also just announced the addition of “Mini Trunks” — available in “Sweet” and “Health” — for just $13/month!
This is a review of the “full-sized” Health Trunk!
As always, the box was nicely packaged, with the info cards tied neatly with a purple ribbon.
Tophe Garlic Flavored Rice Bran Oil – This is made from 100% pure rice bran oil, which is considered the healthiest edible oil. It’s trans-fat free and contains vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients. It has a high smoke point and is perfect for stir-fry, which is what I think I’ll be using it for. Plus, it’s garlic flavored. Yum.
Amella Caramels with Roasted Almonds – These look SO good. When I looked them up on Amazon, I saw that they make vegan ones too! I sooo wish I would have gotten those ones! Ah well, this will make a nice “bonus” Christmas gift for my mom. (Lucky her.) These caramels are handmade using raw blue agave nectar instead of yucky corn syrup. Each one is covered in dark chocolate and then sprinkled with almond pieces. Mmm.
Vino de Milo Roasted Garlic Dressing – This chardonnay-based dressing is all natural, gluten-free, and vegan. It’s made in small batches using local ingredients. Yep, I just copied that all from the label. 😉 Sounds good though!
Oren’s Kitchen Coconut Chili Macadamias – Though I’m a big fan of nuts (teehee), I don’t really know what macadamias taste like. I just associate them with macadamia nut cookies, which I’ve also never had. These are slow roasted and flavored with coconut and chili… A strange combo, but I’ll give ’em a try.
We Love Jam BBQ Sauce – I’m a big fan of BBQ sauce, so I was happy to see this. It’ll be great tossed with fried seitan. Mmm.
I wasn’t as wowed by this box as I was with last month’s, but it wasn’t too bad. I’m probably going to end my subscription after December (hoping for a fun holiday-themed box!).
