One of the many packages I received today was my December Fancy Food Box! Yay!  My mom was here when everything arrived and she was like wow, this IS fun!

Fancy Food Box (which used to be Samplrs) includes five or more food products – anything from cookies and chocolates to teas and sauces – along with a selection of tasty recipes and pairing suggestions for $47.95/month ($39 + $7.95/shipping).

The Box

Fancy Food Box ships via FedEx.  It always takes two days to get to me from New York.  They have been really good about sending out shipping notifications lately too.  I used to only sometimes get them.  Now, all the time!

First Look

I hadn’t gotten a chance to look for spoilers yet, so I went into this one totally unspoiled.  The Jennifer Love Hewitt Box and the Fancy Food Box are probably my two favorite Fancy Boxes, so I always look forward to receiving this one.

The Information Cards

The December Fancy Food Box didn’t have a theme or a special card like the past few Fancy Food boxes have had, but it didn’t even matter.  I knew as soon as I was unpacking this box that it was a winner.  Here is what was included:

~Tumbador Vanilla Snickerdoodle Spread ($12):  Awesome!  Yes!  It’s similar to Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter (the crunchy kind anyway) and is fabulous.  I tried it straight from the spoon, but they also recommend it on ice-cream, pancakes, fruit or toast!

~Tumbador Sweet and Salty Chocolate Bar ($3.33): This too is amazing!  We got chocolate covered animal crackers from Tumbador a few months ago and they were fabulous too.  I can only hope that Fancy includes some more items from this company.

~Mike’s Hot Honey ($10): The card says that this can be poured over anything and everything.  From pizza to salads and even bananas (?).  I’m not quite sure what we will do with it yet.  Maybe try it on some bread first?  Start off slow ;).

~Fondue Set ($30):  Ahh, fun!  We have a big fondue set, but well, it’s big and we are lazy and never drag it all out.  But this is much more reasonable and even L will be able to get into the fondue dipping on this.

~Peppermint Bark by Red Rocker Candy ($14): Peppermint bark!  Delicious!  I haven’t bought any yet this season so this is much appreciated and will be well loved around here.

All totaled I came up with a value of $69.33 for the December Fancy Food Box.  This was probably one of my favorite, if not my total favorite Fancy Food Box to date!  I loved it!!!  Did you get a Fancy Food Box this month?  What’d you think?

      It was a good one!

    I received mine as a surprise today!! I actually didn’t receive a shipping notification, but it did brighten my day 🙂 This is probably my favorite box right now, and this month didn’t disappoint. We were also kinda confused here about the hot honey, my hubby likes spicy stuff so I’m sure he’ll find a use for it…. the rest I’m trying hard not to dig into before the hubby gets home 🙂

      This was a great box! Hopefully he gets home fast!

    I like the idea of the honey on cornbread. Makes me think of cornbread and chili.

      That sounds good!

    Hi – quick question you may or may not know the answer to ….. How does Fancy Box work with which box you get. Here’s the scenerio, I became obsessed with the JLH box after your reviews. During the Black Friday/Cyber Monday 30% off and Free Shipping – I signed up for one. I got the November box shipped – I read your review and was very “meh” and let it sit at Fed Ex before picking it up today — I opened it today and guess what??? It was an early box – one I love. The one with the skull bracelet, stocking hat (which so is not me but its darn cold out), headphones, and sunglasses! Will I get the boxes in order now or was this just a left over they sent me this time to make my heart sing because I didn’t really want the actual November box. If I keep it, will I keep getting it in order and if so, how do I skip the one you got this month? So many questions!!! I am actually incredibly excited and happy so just wondering how I got so lucky….and what I can expect with the Tyler Florence which should also be on its way……

      Ahh, yes. Everyone who ordered that day seemed to have gotten that May JLH Fancy Box. Not too sure why? I would assume you’d get the current boxes now (like the next will be the December one which they haven’t sent yet), but I have no real idea. Your best bet would be to e-mail.
