Yay! My January 2014 Tyler Florence Fancy Box is FINALLY here! This one was quite delayed this month so I was happy when it finally appeared at my door.
Fancy Box ships via FedEx Ground and takes about two days to arrive. As I mentioned, this month’s box was quite delayed and it usually comes at the end of the month or the beginning of the following month. I’d say that this was over a week later than the latest box we have ever gotten from them. They didn’t sent out an e-mail discussing the delay, but someone had mentioned that they had a vendor issue.
This month’s box was super heavy, so I was anxious to see what was inside! Right away I saw a full box, which I loved.
The normal Fancy Box information cards were included, but they made no mention of Tyler Florence at all. I would be so curious about how much participation the celebrities in this box have. Anyway, here is what was included:
~Precision Pierced Stainless Steel Colander ($25): We do actually already have a colander, but I don’t mind having an extra. I will actually probably swap this out for our old one and donate the older one. This one is much nicer!
~Acacia Salt Cellar ($16): This is a little dish to use for your salt when you are cooking. I think we’ve gotten a few of these from Fancy (maybe not in the TF box, but other boxes) in the past, so I am not totally sure what will happen with this. Possibly an item for B’s future basement bar?
~Cipriani Pasta ($7.49): Just looking at this makes me hungry. I LOVE pasta. Love it. I would eat it for every meal if that were an option. I am so looking forward to B making us some pasta this weekend!
~TF Tomato Vodka Pasta Sauce ($9): Not sure what’s not to love here. TF recommends it as a compliment to cheese-filled ravioli or tortellini, but I am thinking with the pasta above and some chicken? That’s all my time favorite pasta!
~TF California Puttanesca Sauce ($9): This is recommended when paired with fresh seafood and pasta. Not my favorite meal, but I am going to leave this one up to B and see how what he does with it.
~Pizza Wheel ($9): Ours is getting icy, so this was great timing! Not to mention the fact that L’s school fundraiser pizzas need to be picked up today, so we will actually probably have a pizza for dinner so I can test this out.
All totaled the January 2014 Tyler Florence Fancy Box had a value of $75.49, which is almost double the cost of the box ($39 + $7.95 shipping). Probably not my favorite TF Fancy Box, but it’s worth the cost of the box (to us anyway), so I am happy. I know we would have ended up buying a new pizza wheel and a colander soon anyway and I am more than happy to try his line of pasta sauces, so it’s a win!
