June Fancy Food Box Review

The Fancy Food box is one of my favorite subscriptions right now. It is one of the many offered by thefancy.com , and this one specializes in food. It costs $39 a month plus shipping, but the value always exceeds the cost by a considerable amount.  I don't think there are any coupon codes for it right now, which saddens me. 
 I think this box is always red.
Rufus Teague Honey Sweet Sauce ($7)- I needed a new barbeque sauce to discover, so this came in the perfect time! It is pretty sweet, but not overwhelmingly so.  I might make some barbeque stuff with it next week.

Morris Kitchen Ginger Syrup ($12.00)- I tried this on its own, and it was super strong! But that is not the way it is meant to be consumed. You can make many things with this like your own ginger ale, even some weird relaxing tea thing.  I love ginger ale a lot, so I am happy with this. 

Tin Mustard ($7)- Dang! This mustard is really potent. And I don't know what I'll use it on.
Rick's Picks Handy Corn Relish ($10)- Let me start out by saying that this does not look appetizing one bit. But it tastes pretty good. I may just use it in place of relish.

Cookie Assortment by the Cravory ($2)- I don't know why it says assortment on the card, because it is just one cookie. Anyways, I got lemon flavor, and it was slightly squished from the mailing.  But the taste was fantastic! I often find that lemon flavor things taste too sugary, and this had the perfect amount, and it tasted awesome.

Salty Road Vanilla Salt Water Taffy ($6.50)- I am a bit dissapointed that I didn't get the salty carmel flavor, but these candies are still tasty.  I like that they have some saltiness to them.

Pop Chomper ($14)- I actually really like this! The wood scares me though, as it feels a bit splintery.  I don't know if I would pay fourteen bucks for this, so I guess I am glad it came in this box!

The total value of this box is about $58.50.  This is a bit low for this box, but I was happy with the products. I am thinking about skipping out on the next box because my refrigerator is running out of room for all this stuff. These are full size jars with lots of food that takes a long time to use. I am still working on the salsa from the first box!

Verdict: The fancy food box is probably my favorite subscription from the fancy.
