I got an e-mail yesterday afternoon saying that my June Fancy Food Box was on it’s way and I was quite surprised. Of all the Fancy subscriptions I get or have gotten, Fancy Food Box seems to run the most smoothly. I was billed on 5/19 and received my box today (6/11). No paying for two boxes before I even get one with the Fancy Food Box.
Fancy Food Boxes are always heavier than regular Fancy Boxes. Much much heavier actually! My FedEx lady was kinda late to deliver this today. Her truck broke down, so she was doing deliveries in a Budget Rental Truck. Does anyone else’s FedEx person do this? This happens at least a few times a month around here. I think she needs a new truck.
I had forgotten how big this information cards were. I am so used to the tiny ones that come with the curated Fancy Boxes! And I had such trouble trying to organize these cards. Such trouble. I hope they don’t send an uneven number of cards in their next box!
Here’s what the June Fancy Food Box included:
~TIN Mustard ($7): B got this in a previous box (Bespoke Post I think) and really liked it. I, however, dislike mustard, no matter how fancy it is. However, I suspect that B slips this in food when I’m not looking and then I end up telling him how much I like the meal. I suppose that’s fine, but I never want to know. Ever.
~rick’s picks’ handy corn (corn relish) ($5.99): I wasn’t overly thrilled by this at first, but I’m coming around. B will make up burritos or tacos or something and I’ll end up thinking this is the best salsa ever. I was originally thinking relish = hot dogs = icky, but I realized there is more you can do with corn relish than just throw it on a hot dog.
~Rufus Teague Honey Sweet Flask BBQ Sauce ($6.95): Ohh, this is perfect! B leaves for Bonnaroo tomorrow and there will be a lot of grilling going on there so he’ll totally take this with him. Wait maybe not since it’s glass. But, the more he prepares for Bonnaroo, the less fun I think it sounds. He’s going to be camping for 5 days. In like 80+ degree heat. With sketchy cell phone reception. Staying home with the kids suits me just fine!
~Morris Kitchen Ginger Syrup ($14): I have no idea what one does with Ginger Syrup. Fancy included a receipt card with a “Cho Lula” cocktail that calls for this syrup and tequila along with a few other things. I’ll totally try that and then plan to GTS to figure out what else I can do with this.
~Salty Road Salt Water Taffy (Salty Caramel Apple) ($6.50): Yummy! Salt Water taffy reminds me of summer and the beach and I love it. I never buy it when I’m at home, so this is a fun treat. I got hungry when I was writing this review so I opened it up and tested it. It’s good. And makes me want to go to Mackinac Island.
~The Cravory PB Overload Cookie ($2 ): Mmmmm. This cookie was also eaten during the writing of this review. It was just staring at me. And it was fabulous. I checked out The Cravory website and it looked like they have a ton of great flavors. I need to bookmark this site for future gift ideas!
~Gama Go Cool Pop Spatula ($10): Hello lover. I was JUST talking about this exact spatula (only in pink) and how I used my credits from Fancy to buy it once. I couldn’t be more thrilled to get another. And if you don’t believe I am this excited about a spatula, well, check out my spatula family. Do I use all these? No. They are more collectors pieces ;).
All totaled I came up with a value of $52.44 for the June Fancy Food Box. Higher than the $46.95 cost of the box ($39 + $7.95/shipping), but not some crazy insane value like some of the previous boxes. Of course, I use online prices which don’t include shipping or any of that and not retail prices like Fancy Box does. Still I enjoyed the box and will go for another next month!

Ohh, and if you are having trouble finding the different Fancy boxes, just do a search for “Fancy Box” and they will all come up! And I STILL cant find a Fancy Box code. UGH. You can use “FOLLOWUP10” to save 10% off your box, but I’m still on the hunt for something bigger!
