When Taste Trunk asked if I would like to sample one of their curated monthly subscription boxes, I headed to their website and Facebook page to check it out. Here’s how it works: first, you choose a theme – Gourmet, Health, Sweet or BBQ (you can even pick a different theme each month). Then, once a month, you receive a “trunk” full of 5 -10 hand-picked full-sized products. If it sounds pretty cool so far, you’ll have a chance to win a free trunk of your very own at the end of this post!
The August Gourmet Trunk included:
- Susan’s Gourmet Salsa Relish
- The Jam Stand Drunken Monkey Jam
- Iveta Gourmet Apricot Scone Mix
- Cucina & Amore Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
- The Girl & The Fig Lavender Sea Salt
- Two Snooty Chefs Kansas City Steak Seasoning
I absolutely loved the variety of flavors and purposes of the things in this box. Some could be eaten immediately out of the package, while another offered a fun baking project. One could be tossed with pasta to make a complete meal, and another could be turned into a party dip using the provided recipe. I was so inspired by all of these products that I got started using them right away.
The final product I’ve had a chance to try so far is the Kansas City Steak seasoning. I whipped out the trusty cast iron skillet I inherited from my grandma, picked up a few New York strips, and sprinkled them with the seasoning. A quick sear later, I was enjoying a perfectly seasoned and flavored steak. I loved that this seasoning is the only ingredient you need to make a great steak, and the little tub of it is literally overflowing with the seasoning mix. It’s really packed in there, so you’ll be sprinkling dozens of steaks with this product!
All told, I’ve had a chance to try 4 of the 6 products I received in my Taste Trunk, and all of them were truly gourmet items that I would gladly buy again, given the chance. I think Taste Trunk would be great for any home cook that wants to embark on a new culinary adventure each month. It’s so much fun discovering new products, and coming up with ways to use them. These ingredients would really spice up any meal routine!
