December 2014 Fancy Food Box

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

So many boxes arrived today and one of them was my December 2014 Fancy Food Box. I was anxious to see what was included because my fancy boxes have been, umm, less than Fancy lately, and was hoping that this one would redeem itself.

Just in case you aren’t familiar, Fancy, which is $39/month (plus shipping), offers a “regular” Fancy Box full of cool goodies and celebrity curated boxes which include a collection of the coolest products hand-picked by Jennifer Love HewittVerbalKelly Rowland, Nicky HiltonCoco RochaSnoop DoggT-Pain and / or The Rockettes. They also offer the Fancy Food Box you see here, as well as, Fancy Mystery Boxes and their Culinary Box.

The Box

Fancy Food Box ships via FedEx and took just two days to arrive to me. My mom was actually here watching WB while I helped out at L’s school today and was cracking up at the number of boxes that came today.

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

First Look

The first look was okay, not OMGAMAZING, but okay.  Like with all of the other Fancy boxes I have received in the last few months, this one didn’t have an information card.  I still have no idea what is going on with that.

Here is what my December 2014 Fancy Food Box included:

~hot cakes Peanut Butter Bites ($15): This company’s website is right.  There isn’t much better than chocolate, peanut butter and salt.  And these are amazing.  So good!

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

hot cakes Peanut Butter Bites

~Red Rocker Candy Rocking Chair Mix ($8):  Another yummy treat.  It’s a mix of cereals, pretzels and almonds all covered in chocolate.  It’s one of those snacks you have to move away from you or you will be temped to eat the entire can in one sitting.

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

Red Rocker Candy Rocking Chair Mix

~Raley’s Holiday Mix ($5) and EmotiCandy ($5): I love hard candies and these are really cute.  And good too, but mainly I like them because they are so cute!

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

Raley’s Holiday Mix and EmotiCandy

~We Rub You Korean BBQ Marinade ($8): We’ve gotten this before, but I am not sure if it was in a Fancy box or a different box. B will make something with it.  Fancy used to include recipes in their Fancy Food boxes, but that is no longer the case.

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

We Rub You Korean BBQ Marinade

~Annalisa All Natural Chocolates ($13.95): I don’t think you can go wrong with a box of chocolates.  Well wait, if it’s 90 degrees out when you ship it than yes, you can go wrong ;). But these were perfect and totally delicious!

December 2014 Fancy Food Box

Annalisa All Natural Chocolates

All totaled I came up with a value of $54.95 for the December 2014 Fancy Food Box.  Including shipping, the box is $46.95, so there wasn’t a ton of added value here and I just wasn’t wowed by it.  I am taking a little Fancy Box (Food and otherwise) break and will see what they send out in the next few months and if I see any improvements I may resubscribe.

Did you get Fancy Food Box this month?  What’d you think?  If you are thinking of ordering the Fancy Food Box, click here and get signed up! If you order now, your subscription will begin with the November box.  And if you are looking for any of the other Fancy Box boxes (including Mystery Boxes), I suggest just doing search for “Fancy Box“. It’s much easier than trying to navigate their site, which I find quite confusing at times.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

The November 2014 Fancy Food Box has arrived!  I always loving seeing what treats Fancy includes so B and I were excited to open it up.

Just in case you aren’t familiar, Fancy, which is $39/month (plus shipping), offers a “regular” Fancy Box full of cool goodies and celebrity curated boxes which include a collection of the coolest products hand-picked by Jennifer Love HewittVerbalKelly Rowland, Nicky HiltonCoco RochaSnoop DoggT-Pain and / or The Rockettes.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

First Look

The first look was absolutely fantastic.  I loved everything I saw and was anxious to see what other items were in there.  For whatever reason there wasn’t an information card in this box.  Fancy hasn’t been sending them lately, so I don’t quite know what’s up for that.  Anyway, here is what the November 2014 Fancy Food Box included:

~McClures Bloody Mary Potato Chips ($5): B loves these chips!  We might be a little biased because they are made in Detroit, but they are really really good.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

McClures Bloody Mary Potato Chips

~Three Jerks The Original Filet Mignon Beef Jerky ($14.99): B couldn’t wait for me to get the pictures of this box taken fast enough so he could try this.  And he loved it.  It’s possible we’ve gotten this before somewhere, but it’s been a long time I know that.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

Three Jerks The Original Filet Mignon Beef Jerky

~The Cravory Cookies ($6): L and I have declared the Birthday Cake cookie to be the best cookie ever made.  It was dense and rich and just delicious.  I want to go to San Diego and try these cookies fresh out of the oven!  I don’t see how they could possibly be any better, but I bet they are.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

The Cravory Cookies

~popBar Hot Chocolate on a Stick ($8.99):  I have gotten these before and I have always loved them.  They are more fun than regular hot chocolate and also make a great gift.

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

popBar Hot Chocolate on a Stick

~My Brother’s Salsa (Cranberry Orange) ($8): I could totally see myself eating this with chips or even with with turkey on Thanksgiving.  It might be weird, but I think it’d be good!

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

My Brother’s Salsa – Cranberry Orange

~Wing Time Buffalo Wing Sauce ($8): This is probably the only item that I am really not overly excited about.  I’ll get used eventually, but I am not sure for what?  Maybe for Super Bowl?

November 2014 Fancy Food Box

Wing Time Buffalo Wing Sauce

All totaled I came up with a value of $50.98 for the November Fancy Food Box, which is just barely over the $46.95 cost of the box.  So while the box had a lot of fantastic items in it, I can’t really say that it was a great value.  Fancy Food Box used to put together some really great boxes with awesome values and I hope they are able to get back there.  But at least for now I have my Cravory cookies to make me feel better!

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Yesterday was a slow subscription box day around here (believe it or not, NO boxes arrived), but things have picked back up today with the arrival of my October 2014 Fancy Food Box.

Just in case you aren’t familiar, Fancy, which is $39/month (plus shipping), offers a “regular” Fancy Box full of cool goodies and celebrity curated boxes which include a collection of the coolest products hand-picked by Jennifer Love HewittVerbalKelly Rowland, Nicky HiltonCoco RochaSnoop DoggT-Pain and / or The Rockettes.

Fancy Food Box ships via FedEx and took the normal two days to arrive to me. It shipped on Monday and I received it today (Wednesday).

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

First Look

I thought it was funny that the box was marked Fragile (along with “Very Fancy”) and arrived kind of smooshed.  LOL.  It seems like only when something is marked fragile do I see a damaged box.  Or maybe that’s the only time I notice.

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

The Information Card

The October 2014 Fancy Food Box theme was “Fall Flavors” and included the following rich fall flavors:

~Yunnan Black Tea ($8): I don’t know if I will ever get excited about tea.  Are there any other uses for tea? You know, like how you can make a scrub out of coffee and that kind of thing?

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Yunnan Black Tea

~Rouge Blue Cheese Popcorn ($5.99): Delicious.  This also comes in a bunch of other delicious flavors which I hope to also try!  SO good!

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Rouge Blue Cheese Popcorn

~Kika’s Treats Caramelized Graham Crackers ($8): Umm, yes, these are just as amazing as they sound.  I can’t wait for L to get home from school to try one.  He loves chocolate covered graham crackers and these are a step above normal ones.  Okay, make that like 10 steps above regular ones.

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Kika’s Treats Caramelized Graham Crackers

~Sniffle Slayer Lollipops ($8): Now this is a smart fall item.  They have lemon, ginger, honey and cayenne pepper in them and will make a cold a bit more bearable.  I don’t *want* to get a cold, but I also can’t wait to try these and see if they really do make me feel better.

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Sniffle Slayer Lollipops

~Honey Nougat – Almond ($8): Am I the only one that thinks nougat looks kind of gross?  It’s delicious, I really think it is, but it’s such an odd texture and just looks like something should be covering it up.  Like chocolate maybe ;).

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Honey Nougat – Almond

~Bonbon Chocolate Bar ($10): You for sure don’t need a lot of this chocolate to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.  Just a little square will do the trick. Sometimes it’s better to just go to for the best stuff instead of trying to substitute something in it’s place because you will usually wind up eating more of the substitute because it’s not what you wanted.

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Bonbon Chocolate Bar

~Chi-Cho Hot Sauce ($9): I love the name of this, but I don’t love hot sauce.  I’ll let B figure out what to do with this one.

October 2014 Fancy Food Box

Chi-Cho Hot Sauce

All totaled I came up with a value of $56.99 for the October 2014 Fancy Food Box.  While I enjoyed this box (I always do), I would love to see the value boosted a bit.  The last few months have been a little low, but I have hopes it increases again.  I do love to get so many different products though!

Yay!  My September 2014 Fancy Food Box is here!  I ended up skipping last month’s box, so I was totally anxious to get this month’s box.  I’d missed it!

First Look

I tried to peek at spoilers on Instagram for this one, but couldn’t find a thing.  So opening it was a complete surprise.  The box was very heavy and was marked “Handle With Care. Fragile. Very Fancy.” which made me giggle.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

The Information Cards

The September 2014 Fancy Food Box theme was “Lunch Box” and included everything you need to pack a killer lunch box.  Here is what was inside:

~Jalapeño Be Thy Name ($10): I am not normally a fan of spicy anything, but I can make an exception for spicy peanut butter.  Apples and this peanut butter?  YES!!!

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

Jalapeño Be Thy Name

~The Jam Stand Stroseberry Jam ($10): We are big fans of The Jam Stand around here.  We’ve gotten a few different flavors they offer in various subscription boxes, but this is the first time we have gotten Stroseberry.  I cannot wait to have this on some toast in the morning.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

The Jam Stand Stroseberry Jam

~Q Drinks Sparkling Soda ($2.50): I’m not sure where these came from, but I know we have had them in the past. L loves them and they are a special treat for him.  He gets to have soda minus all the sugar and other icky stuff.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

Q Drinks Sparkling Soda

~Green Mountain Mustard ($7): I am on serious mustard overload this month.  It’s everywhere.  And I am just not a fan.  I’ll give this to my mom or some other mustard lover out there because B can only use up a jar of mustard so fast.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box`

Green Mountain Mustard

~Megpies Pop Tarts ($6.50): Homemade Pop Tars?  Delicious.  I detest regular Pop Tarts, but this chocolate one is amazing.  If (when) I visit Brooklyn, I will make a stop in to their store.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

Megpies Pop Tarts

~Key Lime Pie Marshmallows ($7.95): These are a little out there for me.  I like plain marshmallows, s’mores ones, etc. but key lime?  Not so much.  L will enjoy them though.

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

Key Lime Pie Marshmallows

~Salty Road Salt Water Taffy ($6.50): We are big Salty Road Taffy fans around here.  I don’t think I have met a flavor of these I don’t like.  And they will work as a little treat in L’s lunchbox as well.

Salty Road Salt Water Taffy

Salty Road Salt Water Taffy

~McClure’s Bloody Mary Chips ($2.99): These are amazing.  Plus, they make their products here in Detroit, so what’s not to like?

September 2014 Fancy Food Box

McClure’s Bloody Mary Chips

All totaled I came up with a value of $53.44 for the September 2014 Fancy Food Box.  Not a great value by any means, but I loved the curation on this one.  And many of these things are not available around here so that adds value for me.  Still I would have loved to see maybe a bento box or something along those lines to round this “Lunch Box” themed box out.

The Box

Fancy Box ships via FedEx and took two days to arrive. It left the East Coast on Monday and arrived to me today (Wednesday).  My PopSugar box, on the other hand, left the East Coast last week (I think on the 3rd) and is currently in West Virginia.  Not even close to me at all.

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

First Look

Totally loved this first look.  I didn’t recognize anything in it and that always makes me happy.

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

The Information Card

The July 2014 Fancy Food Box included items to help you stop up your 4pm ritual, whether you are having friends over for high tea or counting down to your afternoon coffee.  Here is what was inside:

~Hey Boo Coconut Jam ($14): The name alone makes me like this!  I am not a giant coconut fan, but I want to see what B comes up to use this for.  Fancy suggests using it on toast or to complement a fruit and cheese plate.

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

Hey Boo Coconut Jam

~La Colombe Pure Black Brew ($8): Had I not been holding a Starbucks in my hand when I opened this box up I would have cracked right into this drink.  I stayed up way too late last night and needed some coffee in the worst way.  This is cold-pressed and is described as “extra-strong”.  I will be having this tomorrow morning ;).

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

La Colombe Pure Black Brew

~Therm-O-Glass Vessel ($41):I think I am in love.  This is a do everything glass “vessel”.  You can use it to infuse tea (well I could if I liked tea), use it as a water infuser or use it to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold.  The bottle won’t sweat which is something that drives me crazy in the summer.  And let’s not forget about the gorgeous design of this.  So awesome.

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

Therm-O-Glass Vessel

~Blackbird Food Co. Granola ($12): This is good alone or in the morning with your yogurt.  I am going to stash this in my office as a go to snack.

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

Blackbird Food Co. Granola

~Mini Stroopwafels ($3.99):  Totally delicious.  If these don’t perk up your afternoon coffee, I don’t know what will.  Love love love!

July 2014 Fancy Food Box Review

Mini Stroopwafels

All totaled I came up with a value of $78.99 for the July 2014 Fancy Food Box.  I totally loved this box and was super excited that I did not recognize a single product or brand from this month’s box.  That vessel and coffee alone made this box for me  Everything else was just a bonus!
